    Being drip fed into the media today. Mooting the possibility of 4th v 5th initially if Liv/Arse end up tied.

    The cynic in me thinks Mr Gill might be looking at ways to keep the raggies options open in future. It could easily be argued 4th to 8th play the same format as the EFL play offs. I could see Sky going for it to keep the jeopardy going all season and the EPL get their muted 39th game. Final in Asia anyone?

    All this is just a thought but i wouldn't put it passed them if their leading "Brand" are suffering.

    Thought it for a while TBH. Making it more of an American style system. Next up for the chopping block - relegation and promotion!

    It won't be down to 8th, 4th+5th+6th+7th = 4 teams. Could kill the last few weeks as a spectacle in most seasons as there's generally a healthy gap between 5th, 6th and 8th - a few teams would take their foot right off the gas.

    They'd need to get all the rest of UEFA to agree too, as it's a UEFA reg, not a FA reg.

    2nd 3rd and 4 shouldn't really quality, just the champions

    Good because we'd always finish above the rags in that case

    No it's not. Uefa offer the fa 4 places in the champions league. It is up to the fa how they wish to allocate them. They could easily offer the fa cup winners a place

    So the FA could give three places to the top 3 and the other to the rags wherever they finish? Cant be true or Gill would have done it by now
