The Uefa Cup was always better than the Champions League monster because it was a proper knockout - now they've got those stupid group stages it's shit.

Boro's run to the final also involved some astonishing matches, totally out of keeping with their normally torpid football. I think what Rogin means by it being 'overshadowed' is 'not as prominent on the telly' and 'only on page 4 of the sports supplements', which does not remotely mean that it's rubbish.

In terms of quality and entertainment, recent Uefa Cup finals easily surpass CL ones.

I unashamedly watch almost no CL. I don't like the hype, and can't get into it whatsoever. I can happily watch the UEFA Cup though, for some reason.

Well, of course the 'overshadowed' UEFA Cup holds no interest for the Chelskis/Arses of this world - they don't play in it. That doesn't mean that the UEFA doesn't continue to provide huge enjoyment for several million fans across Europe.

Let's face it, it's a purer competition than the CL - the most inaccurately-named tournament in sporting history since baseball's World Series*. There's a hell of a lot more to football than a clutch of millionaires, fffs - and, as the saying goes, 'other clubs are available', new football fans.

(* Don't bother explaining - I know how the WS got its name.)
