    Default European Cup Winners Cup

    Would love to see this competition brought back, it would probably give winning the FA Cup more meaning, as it would be a single entry per country competition unlike the Champions (even if you don't finish as champions) League.

    Must say so would i mate.
    Dont know why it was done away with.
    And i sure agree it would make the top english sides take the fa cup more seriously.

    in fact it should only be the champions in the european cup.

    I agree yeah - but then you have the problem of if you have a winner from one CVountry and the Champion of that Country's Champion joining in the following Season too i think - but yer the ECWC sure enjoyed quite a comeback in the mid to late 90s I recall with Chelsea doing well and winning one of the last ever ones (if not the last ever) as well as i am sure one Season like 94 to 95 there was one English and at least 2 Scotland Teams in the Semis

    IIRC it was discontinued due to fixture congestion. Bear in mind, the FA Cup winners go into the Europa League...
