    The Premier League doesn't decide these things. UEFA has allocated England with 4 spots in the CL, meaning the top 4 teams in the Premiership qualify for it.

    or however they decide to allocate the four places, i.e. FA Cup winners, or a play off from positions 4th to 7th if they so wish

    You need to hang out with some more intelligent buddies my friend ;)
    We have the maximum number of CL places a country can have already; dictated by the UEFA Co-Efficient.
    It will not be extended to five, at least until the rest of Europe play better football ;)

    The FA or Premier League does not does not decide how many Champions League spots are available. IF that was the case then the Premier League would have allocated as many as possible. UEFA are one that decide.

    Countries are allocated places according to their UEFA league coefficient. Below is the qualification scheme for the Champions League:
    • Associations 1–3 each have four teams qualify
    • Associations 4–6 each have three teams qualify
    • Associations 7–15 each have two teams qualify
    • Associations 16–53 each have one team qualify (except Liechtenstein)

    They do, but only into the early qualifying rounds that we never take notice of.

    For example, this season Jeunesse Esch made the second qualifying round, before being eliminated by AIK from Sweden.

    To be honest if you look at the UEFA Co-efficient for England and Spain, they're a full 20 points ahead of the next highest, Germany. They should really think about giving us and Spain 5 places.

    If United were to win the CL, which I doubt they will, but if they do. Does that mean 5th gets CL?

    No, it doesn't. Top 4 will get CL this season, plain and simple.

    It SHOULD be the top 5, but with the idiots in charge of UEFA right now like Platini it will never happen.

    IMO it's a complete joke that teams like FC Cluj qualify yet teams like Spurs, Man City and Liverpool may not.

    It's a real joke yeah, they didn't even need to qualify! I can understand Uefa wants a lot of different countries in it but what's the use when you have teams like Partizan or Zilina who will finish up last anyway without a single point?

    Gonna go against what people are saying here. I think it's a joke that we're even allowed 4 TBH. IMO, the CL should be the top team of every league in Europe, and the Europa League reserved for the rest.

    How a team like Liverpool can win the CL, be crowned 'best team in Europe' yet finish 5th in their own league is beyond me.

    Of course I'm living in fairy land here as because of the money this will likely never happen!
