    Leicester have handed us the chance to ruin Spurs season.
  2. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    You are right I mixed up the CL path and the domestic league path. The rules are here.
  3. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    I think not. Man City will qualify to play because their first team is in the Group Stage CL. They also qualify as domestic champions. So the latter place becomes vacant. The rules say it is up to UEFA discretion but given we are second in the league and the holders I would expect us to enter in the domestic champions path.

    Just like Andros Townsend and look what happened to him.
  5. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I might be wrong but I thought the campaign was about "Justice" for the victims (and their families) not the rest of the fans. To me that's an important distinction.
  6. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Nobody thinks that the relatives of the victims are to blame. And probably not the victims either. They were probably the ones at the front who turned up in good time. I'd be pretty pissed off with the coverage in the days immediately after the event if it were my relatives that had died. And I would want the people responsible to be brought to book (because that's what helps make the loss meaningful), But, to my way of thinking, simply blaming the police, the Sun newspaper and conservative politicians is symptomatic of our society. By doing so,we allow others to absolve themselves of any responsibility including the FA, the stadium owner, the medical services and, to a degree, the fans. On that day, a large number of people turned up too late to get through the gates because the gates were inadequate for the numbers in the time available.They formed a huge crowd of people trying to get in. They knew the game had started and were pushing to get in. The gate should never have been opened - they should have been made to wait and enter the stadium in an orderly manner. The police decided to open the gate to relieve the crush. I believe they were trying to avoid injury outside the ground. When the gate was opened, they rushed in and pushed their way onto the terraces behind the goal. Why did they believe they had a right to stand there when it must have been obvious it was too crowded? They must have known personally that they were creating a dangerous crush. Those that arrived late should have backed off and taken positions on the side. In short, they should have given a **** about the safety of their fellow fans. Apparently, they cared more about themselves than others. I am not saying they were solely responsible or even the most culpable, but to my way of thinking Liverpool club and fans should collectively accept that some of their number contributed to the situation and those that did should take some of the responsibility for it. But they don't - they never do. It's always somebody else's fault.

    Me too. People always pretend it must have been someone else.

    I'm fine with Europa League as long as we use it to give the youngsters and squad players time on the pitch
