Blackburn confirm Intertoto plan

 

Mark Hughes has confirmed Blackburn will enter the Intertoto Cup if they do not qualify for Europe automatically.

Mid-table Rovers' Uefa Cup exit leaves them to seek qualification through their Premiership position for a second season in a row.

 

But the Blackburn boss is eyeing Intertoto Cup as a failsafe.

 

Hughes said: "More clubs see the Intertoto as a decent option, they changed the format and it's a more attractive competition."

 

Rovers went out of the Uefa Cup to Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 on aggregate at the last-32 stage on Thursday following a goalless draw at Ewood Park.

 

Blackburn face a replay against Arsenal to keep their FA Cup hopes alive and Hughes is looking for his side to put a good run of form together to carry them into a high enough position to qualify for a Uefa Cup spot.

 

Hughes said: "We need to pick up points in the league and our home form is going to be crucial."

Obviously doesn't know the rules then. Has to finish just after the automatic spots to get into Intertoto, can't just say "Oh we're going in there'

You mean like when we qualified for it from 14th place? :rolleyes:

 

Goddd i say this every time. The team who qualifies for the Intertoto, are the team who finishes highest of all those who apply.

But we're definitely going to apply, Bolton probably will, Reading, Everton, Villa, Spurs etc.. most likely will so the probability is that you'll have to finish just behind the automatic spots to get the Intertoto spot like last season when we had to finish 7th.

anybody else reckon it'd be a good idea for us to have a season of playing in domestic competitions only, concentrate on them and see how we do?

 

might have a bearing on alleviating the worst injury crisis ever known to man

 

We tried that, last year. Didn't help us at all. We really missed European competition last year IMO.

Fair enough, you didn't really mean that with your first post, though. ;)

 

The rules don't state that you have to finish outside the automatic spots, which is what you said initially.

 

But you're right. A lot of teams will apply so the chances are you'll have to finish 6th/7th/whatever it'll be.

 

On a side note, i hope we apply.

Last year, whoever got 7th was going to take it and i expect it to be the same this year.

 

It's far more attractive now than when we got in as 14th.  It's a different competition.
