I don't remember Fifa complaining about Italian football when Milan were in three finals in five years. Then again, Italian football had other problems around then. There's no guarantee there will be three for four English semi finalists anyway. They might be spending big (apart from Mr Myopia), but it's a knockout competition, and teams can upset the form book. Liverpool might not even get out of a tough group. I doubt United can repeat last year's run, especially now they are stuck with a Ferguson-Phelan axis with an interesting understanding of tactics. Chelsea might go far under Scolari, but Arsenal in Europe? It doesn't sound right does it?
