    It's all here 2011
    but I will try to simplify it

    The 3 teams that qualify Via the Fair Play route ( drawn from the top 6 European F.A.'s ) enter at the very first Qualifying round of 52 teams .

    League Cup winners go into 3RD Qualifying round

    The Premiership 5TH placed team + FA Cup winners go into the next round which is the Play-Off Round of 74 Teams ( Which are made up of the 35 winners of the [Previous] 3RD qualifying round + 15 losing teams of the CL 3RD qualifying round + some other waifs and strays )


    This produces the anomaly that the countries that are 7-9 in the Ranking List ( Ukraine , Romania & Portugal ) actually get 4 teams to qualify automatically , and the top six countries ( England , Spain , Italy , Germany , France & Russia ) only get an automatic 3 places + 3 from 6 only for the 3 Fair Play spots .

    If Man City win the FA Cup and finish 4TH then Stoke will get the Europa Cup place .

    Simples !!

    So this means we are in Europa league anyway.

    I'm fairly sure that 6th placed doesn't automatically get anything. Only if the FA Cup winner gets a Europa spot does the 6th placed team also get in. Otherwise its 5th place, Carling cup winners, and the FA Cup winner (or runner up if the winner gets into CL)

    At least thats what I've always had in my mind as being the case.

    So basically, lose every game for the rest of the season and pray to God Everton win at least one.

    tbh we could do without EL football at all next season

    it adds 20-odd games onto your season and a reason behind our success last season was the fact we had no extra fixtures to cope with - we had one clear focus which was the league, and it was the same the first time we nearly broke into the CL in the 2005/06 season, we had a clear run at getting there without the hindrance that comes with the europa league and thursday-sunday fixtures

    if u read that link again it says that 6th place gets u into europa league, except england which is league cup winners, so no we wont be playing europa league if we finish 6th only 5th place league team will!

    Nooooooooo. No. No. No No.

    Rev keeps forgetting that Birmingham City are the 3rd team to be in the competition next season. 5th place and the two competition winners. If Manchester City finish 4th, then Stoke City are in the Europa League no matter what, and the only remaining position is 5th.

    If we did get in I hope we would put our total commitment into competition...we should at least give it a go and try and win it.
