Does 4th place need to play qualifiers? I'd rather we rest players for the fa cup final.

No, 4 group stage places. Coefficient is far too good for that. England has had finalists in 4 of the last 6 years I think

Edit: and 2 all english finals

You sure about that? I thought I heard a pundit say recently that fourth would have to play qualifiers. Would be great to avoid that.

A strange win, we didn't seem like we deserved it, but I suppose that's the shambles Chelsea are at the moment. It's great to be back in the Champo, and for various reasons, that seems particularly important this summer.

Unfortunately I think the FA final is going to be shit for us.

I think there was a phase when 4th meant one round of qualification but that's when Spain and Germany were dominating the last 8 of the CL/EL and France/Italy would reliably have 1-2 teams too.

Check out the coefficient ranking these days and compare it to 2015-18

We could have been 3-0 up before we decided to let Chelsea play and we could have ended up losing the first half but the 2nd half was different, we mauled them. I was in the Stretty End and had a right treat in the 2nd half.

These cunts again.

The club have banned a load of high profile journalists for reporting that Hag has lost half the dressing room.

It seems like the club are trying a different tact to previous years when managers have been in this position.

They're a mess but they have a few top class players in the making and a manager who gets his teams up for big games. We'll lose comfortably.
