If we don't step up a few gears it won't matter who we play.
Relegation worrying teams will be hard to beat as will Man City and Liverpool. West Ham always turn up against us so that'll be another hard game...……………..
We really have to find our form again or else we could be in trouble getting into CL position for next season:(
and that would be really shitty not having that it our brand new sparkling stadium.
So come on Poch get these lads at it again.

Can see this getting so complicated with “what ifs” if English teams win CL and EL. I know we can have a maximum of 5. So what happens if both are all English finals and both winners are already in top 4 but both losers outside top 4. Do we muster a 5th qualifying place somehow from that ?

My understanding is that we get 4. If a club outside the finishing top 4 wins either European competition, then we get a fifth. If two English clubs finish outside the top 4, we still only get a fifth spot and the 4th place finisher is dumped into EL. We don't get a fifth just because a top 4 finisher wins one of European cups.

No.

Only way to gain an extra place place is through an outright winner finishing outside the top 4. If both winners finish outside the top 4, 4th place in the league loses out.

Right...so really the only chance of us losing out is for us to finish 4th and both Chelsea/Arsenal and ManUtd. win the EL and CL respectively (and not finishing in top 4).

this game is scheduled for the Sunday and picked to be televised, at least on the Spurs website.
This was on the OS:

If Brighton lose their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Brighton on 6th/7th April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23rd/24th April.
