Was wondering about that myself. Daft not to really.

Extra insurance, although we'll be OK if we win it ;) .

Also we must be near the top of the "Fair play" league, that's another possible route if the league as a whole is behaving itself enough to qualify for one of the three extra places :) .

I didn't think it was like the Champions League where the winners are automatically entered into the competition regardless of league position though?

1.06 Unless the UEFA Cup title-holder qualifies for the UEFA Champions League
through its domestic championship, it will be guaranteed a place in the first
round of the UEFA Cup. If the title-holder does qualify for the UEFA Cup
through its domestic competitions, the number of places to which its national
association is entitled in the UEFA Cup does not change. If the UEFA Cup
title-holder does not qualify for either the UEFA Champions League or UEFA
Cup through its domestic competitions, its participation in the UEFA Cup will
not be at the expense of the contingent of its association.

How do we stand now that Spurs have won the Carling Cup, does't that cut down on the options for a place. ??

Yeah, that's why we've applied. Just to make sure we have the best possible chance of europe next season.

we'd be stupid not to apply

that said this is the first season i can remember that i've thought that we'll qualify for europe rather than hoped we would, even when we finished 4th i was in constant fear of losing every game and ending up outside of the uefa cup places until we were mathematically there

my mindset of pessimism might be changing... anyone else?

You'd be the first to complain if we went on a bad run and fell out of the UEFA places and we didn't have a back up plan in place. Would you not be annoyed if we would have finished outside of the UEFA places but qualified for the Intertoto only to find we hadn't applied and lost out on a european place and probably a couple of players would leave? See the bigger picture.

As everyone has said, its a bit of insurence, doesnt hurt to be entered just incase.

But winning the Uefa and finishing 3rd will be enough to get into a better competition ;)

Ok, maybe 4th :D

In my opinion itīs a bad idea. The season is too long, why will you prolong it?
The consequences: angry and tired players. Imagine the results in all competitions.
And if at the end you wonīt get the Uefa place trough Intertoto we all will ask: why the useless effort?

A wasted summer for the fans; a wasted season for the club

I really can't see how anyone can think this is a bad idea. If you think that the season is too long then you probably think us playing in Europe is a bad idea as it will mean too many more games. Intertoto is only a few games and could subsadise friendly games. This season we could finish 6th and not get into europe and that just cannot happen. there are alot of teams around us that could easily make eufa spot this year and you'd be kidding youreslf if you thought that we have european qualification wrapped up already.

Intertoto is 2 games (a home and away leg)! Doubt we'll need it but we'd be stupid not to have a fall back plan!

Iīm sorry for my previosus post. I was thinking of Intertoto as it started few years ago. There were 5 rounds, including a minileague.

Only 2 games? Go on

Of course donīt think playing in Europe is bad. Itīs really the best thing can happen, specially for me, living in other country

How good would it be if the shite had seceretly entered it! They finished outside the places and just snuck into Europe next season. UEFA would still say just for you liverpool, if youu win your game you can get into the champions league.

It makes obvious sense too apply for it. Its so damn tight there and if only 2 games is how much we need to play, why not?

Saying that I'm extremely confident we won't need it!
