The Europa League

I have seen plenty of fans from mainly the United and Spurs boards say how they want to avoid the Europa League "at all costs", as it is detrimental to your league position (unless of course you're a Liverpool fan, where playing games mid-week makes no difference to your team and where you are in the league). However are your fans confident that you can finish in a top four position next season or did you just forget/were unaware that the winners of the Europa League next season qualify for the Champions League?

Yeah probably.

We have hoarded enough young players. On balance of probabilities we will have 1 or 2 gems just given the sheer volume we have signed.

You'd think so. I was looking at your squad the other day. You've got over 30 players on loan.

It's like bloody Serie A.

I wouldn't be surprised if FifPro highlight us in their case to have the transfer system abolished.

Yeah probably.

I think the loan system is a good system. Chelsea and the Serie A clubs are taking the piiiiss, though.

I think it needs addressing. There should be limits on the number of loans allowed by clubs. But all the big PL clubs will block it as without B teams or co-ownership agreements, it reduces the competitiveness of PL clubs relative to continental Europe.

Yeah I reckon so.

It could really put a dent in Chelsea's business plan if they do put a limit on it.

Probably. I think we will start easing back on the number of loanees we have this summer anyway.

Will be interesting to see who Mourinho recalls.

Probably depends on how much money RA gives him to work with.
