How did Dortmund reach the final and are still pot 3?
Well, they got kicked out of CL and EL the years before and didn't compete at all even two years earlier. That doesn't do much for a 5 year coefficient then. But frankly, Dortmund don't really mind which Pot they are in. They take on every opponent they get.
City should be pot 4.

Bayern earned 33 points, while Chelsea earned 27 points. (They were in the CL groups first, so they took points from that, too).
Very informative, spent a while scrolling through looking at the different leagues. I do think the weighting system could use some tweaking - it overvalues qualifiers, especially when you consider there's no difference between winning a round of 16 game and winning a semifinal (obviously except for the accumulation of points it takes to get there). It seems to reward the teams that did poorer in their leagues by giving them more points opportunities, and especially for lower leagues that can be a big deal - getting to play poorer competition for 6 games before dropping out of the group stages is worth far more than winning your league, getting into pot 4, and having identical group stage results.

This is all just nitpicking at this point, though, seems like an effective way to rank teams based on performance. Make winning the EL an entry into CL and call it a day Thumbs up

Actually there are the bonus points that are awarded for reaching certain stages of the tournament, so they do give some extra points still.

And the qualifiers only give half the points of the matches in the proper rounds, so they are already worth less points.

I noticed they were already worth less, I just think the difference should be greater. The difference in quality from the qualifiers even just to the group stages is pretty sizable, and I think the points should reflect that. As I said though, it's nitpicking.

On the other hand, the qualifiers usually lose the clubs money as there are often large distances of travel and not really attractive opponents, so the points are IMO a good repayment for that.

I got three questions:

1. How the hell Karaganda came this far! VtI and others who know eastern Europe (and beyond) please enlighten us.

2. How do you rate Sociedad! They have sold their key player, have they bought enough (quantity and quality) players to have a decent run in League and CL!

3. Why do teams like Plazen (BATE, Cluj, Celtic and other 'minnows') never improve. The CL money (€15-20 million) is very substential (can be 2-3 times their budget) but none of these teams rise.

I can only speak for Celtic here, our board were far too tight, between selling players and Champions League money we made £40 million +. We should've had replacements for Hooper, Wanyama and Wilson before selling. We didn't build on our position from last year but have rather taken a backwards step. We gambled on reaching the Champions League with our current squad before bringing in replacements for any of these players or a creative midfielder which we have needed for at least 3 seasons as well. This is the case with Celtic anyway.

And to add, our manager really isn't that great either and next season we should be looking for a better manager and should try and follow the Porto transfer model which we had the foundations to do this year but so far haven't.

Also as I've said in a few other threads, Shakthar certainly aren't through yet, we were utterly dreadful against them and created quite a few chances, they are a really poor side, I fancy our chances at home against them.

Edit to add, we certainly aren't minnows.

Celtic have only themselves to blame, the board though they would qualify for the CL with the squad they have, total arrogance imho.

They are refusing to fork out £6m on Alfred Finnbogason, which would be a cracking player for them.

Any thoughts on which country has the strongest teams this year? I hate to say it but probably England.

How the hell are two Portuguese teams in the Pot 1? I can understand Porto's inclusion as they are CL regulars and won the Europa a few years ago, but Benf*****fica?

how does sacking 2 years straight in the groups not make sense?

UEfa coefficient only applies to European competition football, so u can win 5 straight EPL titles, but if u suck in UEFA tournaments, fair and square u aren't worthy of higher seeding.
