    And get into the Champion's League?

    As a Spurs fan I'll say Spurs, but Arsenal, Bolton and Blackburn are in the running too. What d'you reckon?

    I reckon Arsenal. The others will choke.

    If Arsenal win the Champions League do they qualify automatically for next year regardless of position? I know Liverpool had problems last year and I'm wondering if they sorted that out.

    That's kind of the dreaded situation. If Spurs come fourth but Arsenal win the Champions League, it'll be Arsenal that go to Europe. I think that's a definite now.

    I think I heard somewhere that they wouldn't automatically qualify anymore, no.

    Wow, I hope that's true. That situation's looking more and more likely.

    A Uefa spokesman said: "We changed the rules last summer after Liverpool won the Champions League. So if Arsenal won the Champions League they would go directly into the group stages next season. The fourth-placed English team would, instead, go into the Uefa Cup."
    Dammit Barbarossa, you got my hopes up

    I stand corrected. Sorry 'bout that. I remember reading somewhere last year that the FA wouldn't intervene again. Never thought UEFA would make a sensible decision on their own

    I think Arsenal will get there too. Spurs' form since the turn of the year has been pretty ordinary and I can't see the other two making it.

    It would be great if Arsenal didn't get fourth, however.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Arsenal have a slightly easier run of games towards the end of the season so you might be right.

    However, Arsenal V Spurs, 24th April will be a massive game. If Spurs can win that I think we'll do it.

    If Arsenal don't get 4th and don't win the champions league theres no way Henry will stay to play against Sevilla and Stuttgart in the Uefa Cup.
