Apologies to start a new thread.

For Info

England will gain 3 places in the Europa League.

5th place automatically
EFL Cup winners
FA Cup winners

The EFL Cup is between Man City and Aston Villa. We all must cheer on City that day to free up 6th
The FA Cup is at R5 stage
The top 3 for CL is near enough done.

FA Cup
1st placed Liverpool
2nd placed City
3rd placed Leicester
4th placed Chelsea
5th placed Tottenham
6th placed Sheffield United
7th placed Man Utd
10th place Arsenal all remain in the comp and only Chelsea v Liverpool means one will be guaranteed to depart. This gives a very high percentage chance of one of these winning the FA Cup, but from a EFC point of view, it would be better if one of the top 5 win the cup to free up 7th.
Wolves in 8th mean that in the event of the top 7 gaining Europe, three teams will miss out, meaning if Sheff Utd and Wolves fade, we must stay ahead of one of Arsenal or United - both of whom we play in the next month.

Man Utd, Wolves and Arsenal are all still in the Europa League.

To confuse matters, if a English team wins the champions league and a English team wins the Europe (we have 4 and 3 left in accordingly) then4th place in the Premier league becomes Europa League and 7th places misses out...……….. Ouch!!

Last season Europa League was at 55 points, meaning we would need 22 points from 13 games, but this season, with runaway leaders means it could be a lot lower.

Of course we need to do our own job.

That passed 10 minutes of my life anyway

Hope that helps

If we finish 7th and qualify, the first match in qualification for the Group Stage would be 7/23.

Copa America groups end 7/1 so even if our South American players that go to that tournament go out they will not be available immediately. Euro groups end 6/24 so any players exiting at that point will make it back but most likely not be fit. Any who move on won't be available. Also it is very likely transfers will be held up by the tournaments meaning incomings will be minimal to that point.

All this to say that qualifying could end up being a real problem if we are sending Stek out in nets with a backline of backups and who knows what in midfield and up top. It adds 6 extra fixtures before anything really gets going to. It'll present a real challenge to the whole club.

Good. If Liverpool reserves can beat Shrewsbury, ours should be able to beat someone of Ruzomberok quality.

See Wolves for example. They played Crusaders (NIR) and Pyunik (Are) this season, meaning if we played the kids in those games, our first competitive game would be... 27th August, which is after the season has started.

Oh and after saturday, our next 4 matches are Arsenal Away, United Home, Chelsea Away, Liverpool Home. If we're still in the mix after that, then we can resurrect this thread.

The Europe in JUly/August would give us a good set of pre-season warm-ups, more than what we've had for the last few years. How embarassing was it playing a pre-season match last season in what was virtually a public park!

I would love us to go, I don't care about anxiety over squad depth, lack of pre-season etc, we should be fine, Wolves have been fine so far.
