    Possible playoff

    http://bbc.in/2qpj2UZ

    Interesting there are a few scenarios that could lead to a play off for 4th or 5th and 3rd/4th. All got similar GD and goals scored. The most likely is if we win 3-0 and city draw 3-3 a play off for 3rd. If Arsenal draw 1-1 and we lose 2-0 it's a play off for CL football.

    Really don't want this season to drag on!

    Wow! I obviously don't want this to happen as my heart might not make it, but it would be immensely exciting if it did!

    Just go for Boro's jugular straight from the off on Sunday and we shouldn't be bothered with any of these scenarios.

    As good as our recent record is against top 6 sides let's hope it doesn't come to this.

    Although 3-0 and 3-3 correct score double gives odds of about 590/1...

    Yeah, win 5-0 and just hope City don't draw 5-5.

    Edit: actually that's bollocks! just win 5-0 and we're there

    I can safely say, not going to happen.

    PL should have put the head-head results between any 2 teams that are otherwise tied. Would suit us perfectly as we have taken 4/6 points from the other top 4 teams.

    As a follow up, if the team that finish 4th lose the CL playoff tie are they dumped straight into the group stages of EL or no European place at all?

    I don't think they qualify at all, they only get demoted to Europa when they finish 3rd in group stage. That's my take on it, but I could be wrong.
    If football was meant to be played in the air, god would have put grass in the sky.
