We could also have a situation this season where a team qualifies for the Champions League when not only have they not been Champions for over 40 years, they havent even won a major trophy for 34 years. Wink

Or even a club that has never won any domestic title, as the winners of a European competition, thus granting a Championship team a Europa League spot for fair play

If Portsmouth had been allowed to enter the Europa League then 2 Championship teams could have been in Europe as Burnley would have been the highest available team to enter through fair play.

Unlucky, Father Flynn.

It was January 1968.

Macc lost 4-2 after taking the lead twice.
