please let me first say, I am not getting giddy I am merely asking a question ,,,

IF , we finish top four , and then went on to win the Europa league , would that mean the team finishing 5th/ 6th would qualify for champions league ?

equally , when city win the champions league will that mean another English side would qualify ?

so potentially there could be 6 English sides in it next season?

or is all that complete bollox Embarassed

I think that is the case. 6 English teams in the CL....

I think the rules changed after the rent boys won it forcing spuds into the EL...

No, if we win EL then only 3 teams qualify from league positions, so if we're one of the 4 it doesn't matter, 4 qualify. If we finish 5th and win EL then 4th placed team doesn't qualify. Same if City will CL, if they're in top 4 nothing changes, if out of top 4 then they take place of 4th place team.

UEFA rules state that a maximum of five teams from one association can qualify for the Champions League.

If a winner of the Champions League finishes outside the top four, they go into the Champions League group stage. and so five teams are in the Champions League.

If a winner of the Champions League also qualifies by finishing in the top four, then no extra place is awarded and four teams qualify as usual.

If a winner of the Europa League finishes outside the top four, they go into the Champions League final qualifying round and so five teams are in the Champions League.

If a winner of the Europa League also qualifies by finishing in the top four, they go into the Champions League group stage and no extra place is awarded and four teams qualify as usual.

No team finishing in 5th or 6th place can get in the Champions League unless they have won one of the two European trophies the previous season.

I did mention this to a dipper the other day and even with all them if's he still looked a tad concerned

We must be favourites to win the Europa?

Surely knocking the dippers out of the ECL would be our crowning achievement regardless of any other trophies won this season Laughing

UTD have been favourites before we knocked out St Et and our price has shortened since.
I think the only other quality team left are Roma
