    If Wolves win the EL they will get a CL place and:
    • if Wolves also finish the league in an EL qualifying position then England lose a EL place - but it's the EL place that Wolves would have used.
    • if Wolves finish 7th and Arsenal win the FA Cup, Wolves wouldn't have qualified for the EL so England wouldn't lose a EL place.

    It's all set up for a ding-dong, helter-skelter, devil-may-care, nail-biter of a finale day. I hope they don't have lasagne for dinner the night before.

    So good results for us tonight.

    Chelsea need to win really to be safe with it all which is good for us.

    I don’t really care to be honest. Getting top 4 next season is going to be damn tough, so not having to travel all around Europe on a Thursday wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world....

    Man U and Leicester can't both win when they're playing each other. Good thing Chelsea have a far worse GD than them.

    I actually think if Liverpool can finally lose form, city continue to have defensive problems then it is set up for a Leicester or Chelsea title win when neither were in Europe.

    Just need a good counter attacking manager of a decent side with a good striker....

    You need a side picking up results at the tail end of the previous season... that is so true of teams that win the league of late

    Would mean a bit for our finances and the UEFA coefficient. Also, with Mourinho at the helm, you'd think we'll be in with a shout to win it.

    "So (apostrophe) good results for us..."

    That little squiggle of punctuation turns a compound adjective - So good results... - into a dramatic - and gramatically correct - pause: So, good results... .

    Yes, I'm already hearing that two-word, three-eff reply. Make English Great Again.

    Absolutely, there are some advantages for sure and I would definitely not be one to turn nose up at the chance to win a trophy. But for me I consider it more important next season to establish ourselves in the top 4 of the league again and would still say we would have a better chance of qualifying for CL via the league than winning the Europa. To be honest, if they just sorted out the format of the Europa League it would make it so much more appealing but never mind....

    I was a tad perplexed reading that for a minute..

    Anyways, win Sunday and we get Europe right? Simple as that, fudge the permutations.

    We need to win a trophy - to get the monkey off our back and to get that winning meteorology in the club.
    The more competitions we are - the better.
    The group stage will be pretty straight forward (in theory) and we will be able to break in our youngsters - give parrot and skip more games.
    Mourinho will want to win this as well and take a much different approach to poch.

    Lol - meteorology....

    As long as wolves don't beat Chelsea, yes. If wolves win, we need Chelsea to beat arsenal in the FA cup final.

    Totally agree - if they just made it a two-legged knockout competition between 32 teams, it would be a brilliant competition.

    Instead they add another 16 of the bricktiest teams in Europe, add a dull group stage, and then thrown in the 8 losers from the CL before the knockout phase even begins. If we qualify for the playoff round (i.e. one round before the group stage), we'll have to play 17 matches in order to win the competition - almost half an entire PL season!
