Wasn't having a go at Arsenal. It was just an observation. A poor season would turn out to be a very good season if you win the Europey and qualify for CL. Anyway, huge summer ahead for the north London giants (and Arsenal).

If Spurs finish 4th and get beat in CL final and we win Europa do they not play CL next season ?
No, 4th gets CL no matter what happens in Europey. Spurs'll finish 3rd anyway.

Jed is not right. Speaking for myself FA Cup means a hell of a lot, as a small boy growing up Cup Final Day was just that...a whole day dedicated to the two sides who'd made it to the final, the worst loss of all time was getting knocked out at the semi-final stage and missing the biggest day of the British football calendar. The most historic competition steeped in great tradition, it's not all about the Premiership you know and it's money with it's ridiculous Sky hype.
That was back in the day when the FA Cup actually meant something to the big clubs. Nowadays teams such as Liverpool and Spurs put out weakened teams even when they get to a FA Cup semi-final. I doubt Liverpool were devastated when Wolves knocked them out in the 4th round. Since Man U dumped it off for the Super Cup in 1999-2000 it has lost a considerable amount of its prestige.
