Seventh place finish would mean Europa League place


Europa League UEFA Cup - Header

The Football Association say that the team finishing seventh in the Premier League will qualify for the Europa League.

This follows the news that Portsmouth have been told they will not be able to play in the competition next season, despite reaching the FA Cup final.

Spurs fans will be hoping that the club can qualify for the Champions League by finishing in fourth, but should they suffer a disastrous end to the campaign and finish seventh, we will still have European football next season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. "Yuppie doo"

    Idiotic response. Not least because it doesn't make any sense. The writer is merely informing people of a very important development.

  2. erm…great? champions league or jus the league id prefer, too many games from europa,
    steve how did u post that 8mins before dilly?

  3. I suppose Liverpool do have to have some form of European football, however I would laugh if they mess it up and Everton caught them up. I know it sounds stupid but if we dont make CL, I would rather not be in Europa League next year which could be the case. It certainly has helped us make a really good go at finnishing well in the league and making FA Cup Semi and League Cup last 8. You only have to look at Fulham to see how their league form has suffered putting all their effort into this competition. If the format of this was changed to a straight round by round knock out it would be more interesting and less drawn out. Why cannot they follow the example of the FA Cup and have 1 leg and onto the next round, lesser teams can start in round 1 and then bigger teams in round 3 like we do here. PS I am really glad Porstmouth are barred, they should not even be in the final with the way their club has been run, chuck them out now and let us play Chelsea.

  4. This is something to consider if we fail to get into Europe and finish eight we can go on and win the league next year because Utd and others lost in the Champs league lost games after every midweek game with our ever improving Squad we can race away and but for a few stupid game Wolves 6 points Hull 2 Everton 2 Stoke 3 Sunderland 3 we could be 16 points better off on 80 points . Just a thought in case we get robbed by Mariner and co. Back to reality a hard fought 2-0 with a nervy 5 mins overtime and 30 seconds with spitting chewing gum fergie fuming at Mariner for sending Neville Scholes and Fletcher of with 2 mins left for arguing about our penalty and leaving our fans 2 mins of singing Gloooooooooooooooooooooooory totte hotspurs Oh yeeeeees
