    If we get 4th place in the Prem and West Ham go on to win the Europa league would we miss out on champions league football as they would qualify for the champions league by winning the europa league? Or can 5 english teams be in the champions league next season?

    Won't happen. Think it'd need the CL winners to be English and to finish outside the top 4 for 4th not to get CL.

    We finish 4th, we'll be in.

    5 teams can go into cl. So you'd need both the cl and el winners to finish outside top 4, for 4th to not qualify.

    It’s definitely possible, especially if Chelsea is given a points deduction for blood money shenanigans.

    They won't get a points deduction.

    It would be kind of moot anyway as in order for Chelsea to win the CL and finish outside the top 4 they would most likely be 5th behind us in 3rd and Arsenal in 4th, or the other way round.

    I agree that it’s unlikely. It’s also unlikely that West Ham will win the Europa. Still, the whole scenario is in the gift of any particularly unfriendly deity.

    I was just having a deja vu moment back to when we finished 4th and Chelski won the champions league and was not sure if we were allowed 4 or 5 teams in the competition

    Even if they went into administration they wouldn't get a points deduction. As it is due to circumstances beyond their control (the only reason you can use to appeal a points deduction for going into administration).

    Lets just concentrate on getting top 4 and worry about unfriendly dieties another time.

    Don't worry, you are not alone. Others have asked the same question.

    It’s flipping around every tens days or so, yes we are the only team in the top half with a manager who isn’t a fudging moron and we have the best two players in the league but we also have s pur sy to deal with. On paper we should walk it, but we won’t.

    If we get forth place…@Danish will have custard on tap for any naked Spurs supporters, apparently.

    this gets asked every year:)

    5 teams can qualify for the CL

    So the only way is WHam winning EL and Chelsea winning CL and both being outside top 4.....so it would be those two and 1,2, and 3 from the PL places. 4th misses out

    doubt they're getting past Madrid tbh

    It's all irrelevant anyway - Bassong is suspended, so we might as well just forfeit.

    Could have asked this on the match day thread, it takes up unnecessary space
