    Would be weird if Liverpool was to win CL this season but be out of it next season. Whats the rules for this?

    They would take over one of the EPL's CL spots, much like Real Madrid did in 2002 i think it was. So technically they can kick Everton out of the CL.

    The winner of the CL and UEFA cup has automatic entry to next season's competition. So Liverpool would be in next season's if they win this season's CL :).

    If liverpool automatically qualified that would mean 5 premiership teams could go through or would the 4th place team be excluded?

    The 4th team which in this case might be Everton will be excluded if Liverpool go all the way and win it.

    I thought I heard UEFA say that you only get automatic qualification if your league has less than 4 teams qualifying. Cuz the maximum has to be 4 and not more.
    If a team from one of the smaller countries wins where they have less than 4 qualifiers, they can guarantee themselves a place.

    Thats what I read but I cant remember where. I think it was a newspaper. I might be wrong though.

    well, it's something the toffees are banking on not happening, it would ruin a very fruitful season for them, result wise

    It would be such a low blow if Everton were knocked out by Liverpool. Just whole thing about them being rivals and Everton finally getting a CL place and then having it snatched away would piss any Everton fan off. If I was a Everton fan, I'd kill someone.

    The English FA would have to decide which team (Liverpool as CL winners or Everton as 4th placed team) which team would go into next season's CL as 4 is the max number of teams from any association.

    From Here

    I think the English FA have already stated that, if there was a choice to make, then they would pick the CL winners (Liverpool) ahead of 4th placed team (eg Everton/Bolton).

    Your mean Bolton. Bolton are destined to finish fourth it will come down to the final match of the season Bolton V Everton. Liverpool are complete and utter shite, they won't beat Chelsea in the Champs league and will struggly to win more than two of their remaining matches in the premier league, leaving it to be a battle between Everton and Bolton for that final champs leaguespot.

    There's no way the winners of the Champions League would not be allowed to defend their title the next season. It would make a mockery of the whole competition if you think about it. Its harsh as f*** for Everton/Bolton but thats the way it'll go should events unfold like that.

    The winners enter automaticaly, no matter is position in the league!
    If someone needs to be kicked out then they shall! :s
    It would be a scandal if the winner would be out of the CL because of some FA grunt who thinks that EPL has more weight in their decision than the CL. I mean it can't be even considered!

    It's up to the FA to decide.

    I dont think Everton can stay in 4th anyway, with games vs ManU (tday) Arsenal and Bolton to go.

    And Pool can still land 4th by the end of the weekend, if not be tied by today.

    There's no reason to think any of the Champs League teams can't win it all, including Liverpool. Ask Juventus or Leverkusen.

    Once you reach a knockout stage, all domestic form and previous results have to be thrown out of the window. Anyone can win the CL including Liverpool.
    Do I have to remind people about Porto and Monaco last year?

    It's a big IF, whether Liverpool win the Champions league...they're not even in the final...so let's cross that bridge when we get there, shall we?

    I hope Liverpool do win the CL, beating Chelsea and Milan/PSV is difficult,
    but possible.
    If they do win the CL, then Everton/Bolton will not go through to the CL.
    The FA will put Liverpool ahead.

    I think that would be hilarious. :lol:

    about as likely as Man City winning the league. :lmao:.............seriously though, we do have a chance and I believe that Liverpool out of the four remaining teams have the best chance against Chelsea, having played and come close on all three occasions this season.

    Well just read news http://skysports.planetfootball.com...=TOP+FOUR+TO+PLAY+IN+CL&channel=Football_Home

    Seems like even if Liverpool win CL they wont be qualifying next season if they dont get 4th spot which i doubt coz liverpool dont play well in league for some reason. But FA are trying to get 5 english teams in but i doubt UEFA would allow that.

    Do you still reckon its unlikely liverpool wining CL jamie mack adn juventus11?

    I think the scousers have every chance of winning it. Its a one off game, anything can happen.

    IMO the rules are a disgrace. The winners of the trophy should be allowed in next season to defend it regardless of their final league position. I think its a joke.

    However, all this is immaterial if Milan win so its not really a debate until Liverpool win.

    I heard it was related to the English Euroban in the 80's. Everton won the league the year english teams were banned, so they were not given CL due to Heysel.
