I too hope Milan wins it next year and join Barcelona, Bayern and the zebras. The only clubs that won all the 3 european cups.

2nd - Sevilla 16/1
=2nd - Valencia 16/1
=2nd - Everton 16/1
=2nd - Tottenham 16/1

None of those teams scare me, but I still don't see us winning.

Plus the 3rd place CL group teams will be in later on

I think a lot will depend on whether or not Milan will bring its A team or its B team to the Uefa Cup games. It's not unknown, at least in the early stages, for teams to rest the 'regular' starters for Uefa Cup games and if the league really is a top priority next year, I wouldn't be too surprised if that were to happen.

I generally think UEFA Cup teams > CL dropouts. There's usually an exception if somebody actually decent like Rangers gets knocked out, but usually it's average teams from average countries.

I think Miln will go for the league. Then again, the UEFA Cup could be an excellent excuse not to buy anybody. Buy nobody, do average in the league, win the UEFA Cup. And there we go, it's a succesful season.

Milan's first game in the UEFA Cup campaign will be on September 18. The return leg, which will be played at the San Siro, will be on October 2.

The draw for that round of play will be made on August 29. (This follows the first two preliminary rounds).

Well that spells our doom right away... (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Personally would like to see Ajax win it. And as Tennie said, if we are actually serious about the league I can't see us going all out to win this. But it could be great seeing us trying to go for both, but personally I don't think our team can handle both competitions, even if the UEFA Cup compared to the CL is much more easier in terms of teams we will play against

This made me laugh for some reason. Imagine us going to the final there again, even though it's not the CL I would still hope that we could win a final there. Or maybe the stadium is cursed for us
