I just heard the game ended in a tie. Was it in Oporto? Either way, a tie is not a bad result. Jardel scored in 47th inute, but I don't know anything else. How did the game go? Does Porto look promising in the return match?

Did you guys see the whole match live or just see highlights?
Trouble is the UEFA coefficient is a five year average. We need to keep having good years until poor seasons like 97/98 and 98/99 drop out. Also apart from Porto the other teams were poor in the UEFA. We've already lost a UEFA Cup place next season. Best outcome in the short term will be to get that back for 2001/02. If we ever get an extra CL place it won't be before 2005/06.

Because it is based on a five year average, the UEFA coefficient system is inherently resistant to changes re the places each country has. Something the big teams in Italy, Spain, Germany and England will benefit from. Is this a coincidence?
It's a 5 year rolling average.

this year it's:
1994/95, 95/96, 96/97, 97/98, 98/99.

Next year 99/00 will be added and 94/95 will drop out.
Each country's coefficient is the average of the 5 years.
ps, i'm 95% certain it's 5 years but may be 3.
