      Premier League Top 4 for CL
      Feb 26, 2021 12:31:17 pm
      I thought there was a thread for top 4 but can't find it. Mods please move accordingly if their is one.

      Opinions on top 4 welcome. Mine are as follows.

      Obviously a slam dunk for top 4 are Man City, can't see one single member not having them in the top 4. With their exciting football and squad debt you can't help but admire the way they play great football. (( that hurt having to say that but it's true.  :D ))


      Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel is already applying his technical /trade football at the club. He is a class manager for me and already putting fat frank to shame on his inability given a team that have plenty to spend yet couldn't get the results to keep his job. Tuchel will for me get the best out of Werner that we haven't seen yet. Mason Mount is another player who will thrive under current manager.

      Man United continue to be inconsistent with results which is a concern (( well at least for me ))  but I do think we can sneak this one, even with Ole at the wheel.  ;D If they can keep Bruno injury free for the remaining of the season it should be Ok. My only concern is the Europa Cup as it's simply too many matches.

      Until last nite I had the fourth spot  between you lads ( Liverpool ) & Leicester. Liverpool can't really play any worse than what they are currently and with the next 3 games 2 of them being easy targets on paper I think this will put them back in the frame along with one or two players getting back in the squad.

      However, with Leicester going out  of the Europa Cup last nite I now think they have the edge Obviously with them being nine points clear of Liverpool gives them a massive edge. I just can't get last season out of my mind though when they capitulated what looked like a certain top four. Bearing this in mind it makes my forth choice just that little bit harder to predict.

      So top four in order.
      Man City
      Chelsea
      Man United
      Leicester

      What's your verdict on top 4 and reasons why. ?

      Just how I see it now Brian. You know it's not personal. I think Chavs under Tuchel will mount a challenge next year.   :(

      Tuchel is a terrible manager, made Dortmund much worse and failed at PSG. If we can find any kind of form we'll push Chelsea out of a top four place.

      Don't think it works like that anymore sadly.

      I still think top four will contain City, Chelsea and us. Cant make any further prediction.

      Sure Uefa made it a rule in 2005 after the FA saw it's arse, winner finishes outside the top 4 in their own countries league, they replace 4th place team in the competition.

      If it's been changed again, happy to concede :laugh:

      Fairly certain in that scenario it would be 5 teams from that country, might have to go through qualifying though.


      I think it will be:

      1) Man City
      2) Chelsea
      3) Liverpool
      4) Man Utd

      I just sense a bit of a wobble coming for Man Utd, not sure why, also Leicester were a bit sh*t getting knocked out of Europa league and until our meltdown against them we were in control of the match, I I fancy them to fade away again. As for West Ham and Everton who knows but I'd be amazed if either one makes Top4.

      In any case for us to get to third we need to start winning matches immediately, by hook or by crook, we must find a way, Jota coming back could be huge, as could getting a settled CB pairing, Klopp needs to be brave there, no more midfielders playing CB, when Fab is back straight into midfield please.

      Nope was changed after 2005 and the scenario with us and Everton. FA sh*t itself and refused to make a decision. Special dispensation was the reason for five teams that year. Since then been changed so that like in Spain in 2000 when the same happened with Real Madrid. Real replaced the team in 4th place in the league, that is seen by Uefa as what should happen

      Much as I hope your right what I've seen so far he's already cast his experience into the team. They were excellent against Madrid on Tuesday. Did you watch the game?

      Think I've read some where there's proposals for the 2024 season that six Premier League sides may get in the CL.

      We are 9 points behind Utd with 13 games left we won't catch them unless you are expecting a massive turn in our form which sadly I can't see happening enough 4th at best I am afraid

      Can't see both your predictions happening. Unless you get injured players back soon CL will be very hard looking how City & Bayern playing at the moment.

      The way I see it at the minute is that Liverpool and Chelsea are battling out for 4th.

      City will be champions.
      United and Leicester 2nd and 3rd.

      I don’t think West Ham will keep up their form.
      Equally, it matters not if our form doesnt pick up as we are more likely to finish outside of Europa places at the minute, never mind top 4.

      Bet some of you non believers believing now.  ;D As United - Leicester - West Ham - Chavs continue to lose points the chasing pack of wolves ready to pounce in this extraordinary season where anything can happen.

      After one week my prediction already in doubt  :lmao:

      Chelsea, city, united and Leicester in next seasons champions league.

      Everton spurs and West Ham in Europa.

      Liverpool will begin the league cup in the 2nd round.
