They definately produce some good players even if they don’t end up staying there, more impressive when you consider the size of player base they have at their disposal!

Appreciate the feedback Basquefootball and you’re certainly not wrong, the Basque people certainly get behind their club and this season has rewarded them for it hey!

Thanks for reading! Yeah Ligue 1 gained a spot for this season, so they now have 3 (from 2) group stage spots and 1 third round quali spots, due to the UEFA coefficient.

Cheers Brendan, appreciate the feedback! As for the cup I’m all for it however I think more pressure needs to be put on Football Australia and the rights holders to put the word out more as I think it’s a significantly underlooked tournament. Along with that I think the amont of entries per state in the R32 need to be looked at every couple of years maybe. For instance South Australia gets 2 entries whereas say Queensland gets 4, despite the NPL SA teams making amazing cup runs in recent seasons.
