EPL clubs shouldn't be in the League Cup IMHO. If you must have EPL clubs in it, then only have the clubs that aren't competing in Europe.

Also, too many clubs in UCL and EL. I know a lot is to do with TV rights, but really, way too many.

Er, what?

It is to do with coefficients.

Like everything UEFA/FIFA it is about money.

If it was coefficients you could strip it to say top two from England, Italy, Spain, Germany as it was for most of the 90s. the other half of the 90s was even stricter, 24 or less teams and one per nation.

I don't totally agree with it but it's pretty obvious it's going to be expanded before shrunk.

It's a shit competition anyway, I'd take one Premier League title over two Champions Leagues.

Agreed. Now they're adding a third cup for the lesser nations (essentially). Just wait until the TV networks want more clubs from the bigger nations in.
