UEFA Champions League decision - to have been expected
The decision by UEFA to allow Liverpool into the forthcoming Champions League season has been met with some trepidation, particularly from those associated with the club, but it is one to have been expected. Liverpool will have to endure six games, three qualifers, before entering the group stage. Of course, that is if they win the qualifiers. Yet given that we had not qualified via our domestic position, we shouldn't be complaining about where we start. I would have preferred we were not allowed in, for the sake of the rules and adhering to them for the fair running of the competition, and also because I feel Liverpool now should build towards winning the Premiership. But whatever comes our way, we will prepare and face it.
