New to the UEFA Champions League qualification rules. If Chelsea wins the final in a couple weeks, I assume they would receive automatic qualification to next year's tournament. But what if they lose? It would seem they will not finish top-4 in league. Are they SOL if they lose?
Considering all of the major injuries in key positions and the loss of 2/3 of their goal scoring abilities (the gifted one & Tevez), I think this year is turning out to be as well as expected.
Fregie and we fans are spoiled and expect a 3-nil victory every week. It hurts when reality sets in (and even more when reality wears Blue!),
The biggest mistake MU made this summer was letting Tevez go - he was a great goal creator and a hard worker, especially when compated to the lazy russian. No tears to be Berbatov go in the spring - but need to keep Fregie until the team is reset for another run at the cup.
Stuned at the suddenness of quality. Seems to have started at the end of last season: losing the trophy. Then Howard has a less than stellar summer with the US national team... and starts off with 2 losses (one to Burnley!).
Is Howard the weak link??
