8th Place for EL?
If Manu win the ELand finish 5th does this mean 6th,7th and 8th qualify for EL .
It's a possibility but very unlikely we could finish 8th.
More than likely Southampton again....

Re: 8th Place for EL?
The press talk has been all about having to finish in the top four to automatically qualify.

Re: 8th Place for EL?
So we get 4 through the league but then an extra one on the proviso one of our teams wins the EL? or would the FA Cup winner get it otherwise?

Basically is it 4 with the option of a 5th, or definitely 5 whatever?

lertie

with a squad that needs a clearout, the very last fucking thing we need is an early european campaing and extra games. thats partly whatr fucked up our transfer window last summer, trying to bulk out the squad for a european campaign.

ES

No, the top three leagues, england, spain and germany, were granted 5 CL places each at the start of the season due to their coefficient rankings.

Don't you want your side to qualify for europe? Or is the CL only good enough for you?

"Why is it that qualification for the EL is regarded on here as some badge of honour?"

Because it means we have done well in the league, or cup?

Why is it that qualification for the EL is regarded on here as some badge of honour? It's more trouble than it's worth.

Re: 8th Place for EL?
Maximum points from our remaining games, aim for 8th and El and try to put the wrongs of the past two campaigns to right.
Third time lucky

Re: 8th Place for EL?
UEFA have said five teams can qualify this year.

I wonder why.....

*cough* MAN U MUST BE IN THE CL IF WE CAN POSSIBLY SWING IT *cough*

Re: 8th Place for EL?
actually sorry westside is correct, the only way liverpool would've lost out on a CL place would've been if man utd won the EL and leicester thr CL, got myself slightly confuddled there in agreeing with harold.

Re: 8th Place for EL?
if man utd win the europa and finish outside top 4 then england will have 5 champs league places

6th, 7th and 8th would then be europa league spots.

go online and check if you don't believe this.

I don't.

Scroll down to:-

What impact would United winning have on the Europa League qualification places?

Unless you can provide a link to the contrary?

Re: 8th Place for EL?
In 2012 Spurs finished fourth but did not qualify for the CL because Chelsea won the EL and England was only allowed four teams. UEFA have said five teams can qualify this year.

I have. If we have 5 Champions league spots, then we lose a Europa League spot.

If Man Utd win the UEFA (or whatever it's called), and finish outside the top 4, then we get 5 representatives in the Champions League. The top 4 will still automatically qualify.

spot on harold

I thought that for us to have 5 CL places we would have to win both the EL and the CL, which is not possible this season.

El Scorchio 6:08 Mon May 8
Re: 8th Place for EL?
Don't see why Man U should get into the Champions league for winning the Europa League.

Sounds like a backdoor entry guarantee for any big club that's been knocked out of the CL and can beat up on all the smaller teams in the EL to regain their RIGHTFUL place at the top table....

Re: 8th Place for EL?
I don't want EL next year. It's not been too great for the past 2 years so let's leave the bloody thing alone until we've a settled and stronger squad!

I know 8th can't get anything for EL, but was just checking I was right about Arsenal.

Westside 5:59 Mon May 8
Re: 8th Place for EL?
If Arse wins the Cup, nothing changes, in terms of European qualification this season, as it stands.

The fact that Arsenal and Chelsea are in the FA cup final, that Chelsea will finish in the top 4 and Arsenal in at least the top 6, means that 7th place qualifies for Europa league next season, as the FA cup place will not be used, regardless of who wins it.

8th place gets nothing. Read earlier posts for the scenario of Ma Utd winning this season Europa league.
