    This,from a few days back,from another thread...

    In the wave of immense emotions and happiness I'd just like to conclude here that...

    Being realist is just an option.You back your side no matter what...and the pride that goes with it is simply out-of-the-world when you are supporting anybody through their ups and downs...

    Back to the title of the thread...this thread is all about Liverpool FC and us-the fans...
    The Aura and the pride that goes with the Liverpool club and the fans is too big for any other club...No matter what the Liverpool fans were all along there supporting their players all the way through inspite of the dismal premiership season and all...and we have regained our glory...

    As much as i hate to admit it,I'm actually pretty happy that Liverpool won.The fact that they got through against all odds,and to do it in the way they did,is quite simply amazing.

    Saying that,I would've been really ****ed off if had cost Everton its CL spot.

    Everton deserves to be in CL alright,but depriving Liverpool now of CL spot next year will be madness...

    Besides whats the big deal...have 5 English sides in the CL

    i dont agree liverpool should be given a cl spot, imo they arent more deserving of being there than a side that qualified. because they have to take someone's spot if they get in, even if it is that of the Andoran champions in the first round of qualifying or something...
    they should be in the uefa cup, they earnt that spot, they can stay there...

    I don't agree, I find it ridiculous that the Champion side cannot play yet a pokey little club from Lichenstein can qualify and most likely go out in the 1st round of qualifying anyway.

    Im not a huge fan of Liverpool so there's no bias there, but I do think that the Champion team should get automatic qualification for the next seasons draw.

    Automatic qualification would be a huge call,it cannot be made because they didn't perform well enough in the league,and there are other teams who did better than them but still have to qualify.

    I think the FA will argue that if a country has 3 entries and a side wins it but doesn't qualify from the top 3, UEFA give an extra spot, so why shouldn't it count at this time?

    and Uefa will argue that precedent was set when Real Madrid took Real Zaragoza's spot when they won it but didn't qualify.

    The UEFA man on SSN said, no more that 4 teams from any country will be in the Champions league next season, Liverpool will play in the UEFA cup

    No, another team doesn't have to miss out, all UEFA need to do is change the number of entrants at each Qualifying Round.

    Seems a lot of trouble to go through for a team that didn't deserve to qualify based on league performances.

    Yes. Which is a tournament for teams who win their country's league or, if it's a league of top standard, do very well in it. They don't have to go and change the rules just because a team who won't qualify for it next season won it. Those are the rules, they couldn't manage to beat English teams so therefore they don't deserve another chance at the CL next season.

    In saying that, credit to them, they played erally well and I was right behind them the whole time.

    I think it is kind of wrong not giving the defending champion a chance to defend their crown but thats just my opinion
