5th gets Champions League football next year doesn't it?

That's a good point.

Uefa from end of next season going to give two extra places to leagues that have highest co-efficients I think so I assume West Ham and inevitably Man. City winning their respective competitions pushes premier league as one of those leagues unless it's some weird formula they use?

England is miles ahead of Spain in second already, so this season will push to gap from first two second bigger than the gap from second to fourth.

Going to book flights and a hotel *just in case*. Worst case scenario is I get a few days in Athens, somewhere I've never been.


I think I'll do the same. An epic adventure on the cards!

What does West Ham winning do, if anything, to the complicated maths about our seeding or otherwise? Is there an upside to those twats winning it?

It shouldn't matter Risso, we are Aston Villa we will beat everyone.
The seedings for this competition need an Alan Turing brain to work out.
No change. Still supporting Viborg tomorrow and Fenerbahce on Sunday to get us a seeded place.

Read this morning loads of West Ham fans flew to Dublin and got connection to Prague. Apparently much cheaper then flying direct from UK.

Might be worth checking if Athens becomes real.

For the eternally optimistic, you can do it by rail:
https://www.seat61.com/Greece.htm

It's worth checking against other options, but you can do it on a 5 day* interrail pass which covers rail & ferries for under 300Ä:
https://www.interrail.eu/en/interrail-passes/global-pass
You'll need to get a seat reservation for the Eurostar, though, which costs an extra 20Ä or something each way.  You can use it in your own country for the first/last journey of the trip, e.g. it covers you going from Witton station to London St Pancras, as long as you go a reasonably direct route - and will cover the journey home too.

Interrail passes cover a return journey in your own country, so e.g. you could use them to go Birmingham -> London St Pancras, then London St Pancras -> Birmingham on the way back.

* you actually need 6 days travel, but you're probably best off buying the last leg on the way there as a single which'll be like 9Ä as opposed to spending an extra 60Ä on a longer pass.  It may well be cheaper to buy individual advanced tickets for this, but it gives an upper limit as to what you'd pay to get there by land.

Just checked details of the final ....29th May in Athens ...... might gamble and get flights booked to Greece or book a weeks holiday and do an internal flight

I mentioned the same to my wife, she wasnít impressed. Itís also half term so prices are likely to be high.

I booked my Athens hotel last week. I made sure the free cancellation deadline was after the semi final though!

5th gets Champions League football next year doesn't it?

I thought this, however someone on here said that was wrong as although England will get a 5th team in the CL, it wonít necessarily mean the 5th place team but a team with the highest coefficient who didnít qualify. Therefore this year it would have been Chelsea!

So I obviously hope this is wrong and you are right!
