Just wondered if anyone could help me out: I know we all want top 6 if not top 4 in the league, but I was wondering if we qualify for the UEFA cup if we beat Chelsea in the semi and Arsenal beat Spurs? Assuming Arsenal finish in the CL places would we qualify even as losing finalists? I know this happens in the FA Cup, but not sure about CC?
Hopefully we'll either win the Cup or qualify via the league, but just wanted to know?

interesting you mention that only 5th qualifies (I had to go and double check that qualification and ’cause you’re right).
We’ve got into the habbit of thinking that 6th will qualify for Europe only because of the CL qualifiers’ recent monopolisation of the cups. Even the mighty BBC seems to have fallen into that mindset, 5th and 6th divided off on their PL table in the same way as top 4 and bottom 3.

Top 4 CL
5th Uefa Cup
Fa Cup Winners uefa Cup
League Cup Winners Uefa Cup
If one of the top four win FA Cup then the finalists get uefa spot if they are both finalis are top 4 then its transfered to the league.
If one of the top four win the league cup then the place is transfered to the league automatically and the finalists get nothing
If you finnish in the Uefa spot through league position and win the one of the cups that the adds another league placings.
This is how the EPL gets 7 euro entries as 1 of the top four usually win the cups its normally decided on league placings. But Millwall and west ham have both got uefa spots as runner up in Cup Finals in recent years.
Or as john says Paint yourself red sell your soul to the devil, and loose all manner of decency and then the rules above don apply!!!!!
