Don't forget the short lived inter toto Cup route into the Uefa Cup

When Heysel was lifted it was gradual: in 91 we didn’t get league cup place...

Wasn't there a comp called the Fairs cup ? Don't know if you qualified for anything if you won it.

Fairs cup was the original name of the UEFA cup

But for them we'd have qualified for Europe on at least 3 further occasions, in 1986 (finished 5th), 1991 (LC winners) and 1993 (Arsenal would have gone into the UEFA Cup having earlier won the LC, so we'd have taken their place in the slightly less prestigious Cup Winners Cup - which they actually won).

 

Genuinely think we'd have done particularly well in 86, English clubs dominated Europe until the ban mainly because of the faster tempo. I'm not claiming we'd have won it or anything but who knows - the continentals wouldn't know what hit them if they'd faced Wilko's mid 80s team.

Nor did we get a EUFA cup lace in 85/86 for finishing 5th (which had qualified in previous years up to the Heysel ban) so Liverpool cost us not once but twice.

 

Oops missed Harpers post above!

Correct though I don't think you had to qualify for it when it first started, clubs were invited. 

 

They was another European competition called Anglo-Italian Cup that was just for English and Italian clubs, some games got a bit nasty, I remember pigs playing in this and Italian team they were playing had a few players sent off.

Well, the UEFA Cup was mostly league-position-based, so you really had to be a good team to qualify. You could finish anywhere and get into the Cup Winners Cup, as long as you won your domestic cup.

the super cup was between the euro cup winners a and cup winners winners so that took precident over the eufa  ......and if you qualified thru a league position for the uefa and won the fa cup as well you went in to the cup winners cup . .....

The UEFA Cup was always seen as harder to win the the Champions Cup

 

This led to the inception of the Champions League

 

The Cup Winners Cup generally was nowhere near the standard of the UEFA

 

Probably why it was dropped and for the revamped Europa League

Champions League really is a misnomer.

 

Right load of rounduns when you can finish fourth and 30+ points behind the actual champions and still qualify!

The Champions Cup only had the winner of each league - where the UEFA Cup had the next best 3-4 teams in the top leagues in the UEFA Cup

The old EUFA Cup was far and away a better competition than the European Cup.

 

Remember when Leeds won the last ever Division 1 title in 1992, the following season they were our sole representatives in the European Cup but were so bobbar that they only just avoided relegation. I don't think they won an away game all season, if memory serves me correct the closest they came was at Hillsborough and we snatched an injury time draw.

David Hirst scored in injury time, Leeds failed to fill upper tier of West Stand that night too, though ask a Leeds fan about it and they'll tell you they brought 10,000. 😂
