    I dont want this to happen at all. I'm much happier with Serie A with 20 teams than 18 teams as it gave us 4 more games to watch in the season. Changing league systems just for 4 extra international days is bullshit in my opinion.

    Blatter is an idiot, why cut 20 teams leagues when FIFA organizes a totally useless Confederations Cup...
    Club football is better than international football...every decent club team can beat the world champions...

    Well, the Bundesliga always had 18 teams, so I do not really care about "oversizing" in other countries...two teams more or less do not really matter anyways.

    I think 16 club teams per league is fair.

    I think 4 teams is fair. Then everyone gets a place in Europe.

    well I think there are too many games. The leagues cup shouldn't exist. I'm fine with 20 teams as long as the quality of the league is high.

    18 is perfect, be funny seeing 24 teams in the prem, 46 games a season and the international friendlies and cups etc, it's around 60 games a season and imagine doing that in the same year as the Euros or World Cup :D

    Games elsewhere need to be cut down, do we need 3 qualifying stages in the CL? teams from Andorra won't qualify so what is the point? have one stage and that's it, rest get flung into the UEFA cup.

    At the end of the day it's all about the players, if every team in the prem wants 20 teams then what's the big problem, leagues should decide not some numpty.

    I think that there are too many games nowadays. Players play 60+ games during an entire season, no wonder how there are so many injuries in these last days of the season. Is cutting to 18 teams the perfect solution to this problem? Well, I think it is part of it. I would:

    - Cut the leagues to 18 teams.
    - Cut that absurd Confederations' Cup. (Only a small number of players do actually play there).
    - Allow the winner of the National Cup a place in next year's Champion's League. This way we'd compensate the lack of four games during the season with a more interesting Cup, as in many countries -like Spain- it is underrated.

    Agreed absolutely. There are too many league fixtures in one season, plus the cups are little more than pagentry, even in England. If there was a CL spot at stake it would be a lot more interesting.
