I’m confused. What happens if City win the League and the Champions League, Chelsea finish 5th and win the Europa League? It was mentioned on here that the team that finishes 4th would then drop out of the Champions League. I thought that one country could have a maximum of five teams in the Champions League? Please explain, this is making my head hurt
The quarter-final round is the first in which there is no seeding and no protection against being drawn to play against a team from the same domestic league. With four English teams in the last eight of the Champions League and two in the Europa League, there was a good chance of at least one all-English clash and two derbies were even a possibility; Manchester City and United in the Champions League and Chelsea versus Arsenal in the Europa League. It is nearly half a century since England has had six teams make it so far in the European competitions.

The prospect that Brexiteers lose Brexit altogether was made clear on Wednesday after the House of Commons backed two motions against leaving the EU without a deal. The danger posed to Brexit has been hammered home by MPs voting for Brexit to be delayed and the spectre of a multi-month delay being offered in turn by the EU. Because the EU alone can determine such an extension the prospect of a lengthy and costly delay might be seen by Brexiteers as being a far worse option than exiting the EU on March 29 under May’s deal.
“The opera was in some ways sort of a poor man's Pink Floyd in terms of production, glitz and glamour,” he explained in amused tones . “Thick As A Brick,” when we did that in 1972; it was really very amateurish. It had a general verve and simplicity and good nature about it but I think it worked in theaters. So it's always been my returning dream to do from time to time concerts that are more of a production rather than getting up on stage, playing a few songs and heading off into the night; I do try to do that much of the time, probably more these days because the technology is more within reach. I remember playing a concert somewhere recently where there was a video wall behind us that our servers and equipment could be made to interact with and I remember thinking how enormous the physicality of this video wall was. There was probably a quarter of a million dollars worth of LED PCs that were put together to form this continuous huge wall of video. I went to see Black Sabbath in their second or third final concert ever and remembering seeing the size of their video wall and thinking, wow that's about four times what I could afford to do in a concert (laughs) but of course this was in the O2 Arena in London which is way bigger than Madison Square Garden so you really do have to do everything on a very grand scale at that level. I'm a theater guy; I don't really like enorm-o-domes. I remember going to see Iron Maiden a few months back in a similar venue and they were these tiny little figures on stage, no matter however big they may be on the video screen; I can get that experience watching YouTube . I'm much happier in a theater where everyone sits down and hopefully switches off their damn cell phones. There's nothing more off putting then sitting there and in front of you in your eyes is somebody holding up a smart phone with the screen lit up filming something; as a member of the audience that gets me really, really angry. Almost as angry as it is when I'm on stage and I'm facing people with their phones in the air and of course they don't know how to work them properly and they've got those nasty little focusing lights on them; so you've got these bright lights in your eyes and that's quite off putting when you're trying to concentrate on music and suddenly lights are flashing on and off in front of your face and they are incredibly bright. People are obviously unaware of what they're doing and frankly a lot of them just don't care anyway; when you politely ask them not to use their cell phones they just think, well fuck you I bought a ticket I'll do what I like. There's not much I can do about it whether I'm a fellow audience member or performing; am I going to be picking a fight with a stranger? That's not something that most of us want to do, hence they get away with it all of the time. I think ideally that the audience members ought to just tap someone on the shoulder and say, excuse me please don't do that and I'd be very grateful if they did.”
