 Notts County Ladies 1 Liverpool Ladies 0 Att 2057. The Lady 'Pies reached the summer break (for the World Cup in Canada) with a narrow win at Meadow Lane against the 'Pool. In a scrappy game the decisive goal came from an excellent corner-kick from Alex Greenwood for Fern Whelan to score with a thumping header. Liverpool's best chances fell to Nigerian Asisat Oshoala but she couldn't find a way past County's keeper Carly Telford who must be running Karen Bardsley, England's No1 close* Mark Sampson, England Manager announces his squad for the World Cup on BBC2 tomorrow night at 23:20

Now I wait to see if the FA demote Doncaster Rovers Belles from WSL1 again.

Nice to see that the Ladies of the club I have supported since 1958 have actually done something positive this season.

If Liverpool Ladies win the Champions' League next May, do they pinch Man City's spot for the 2016/17 competition?

No - if the title holder fails to qualify via their domestic league they are awarded an extra place. For example Frankfurt won last seasons Champions League but finished third in the Bundesliga, behind Bayern Munchen and Wolfsburg. All three got places in this years Champions League.

Common sense - unlike the ridiculous situation in men's football.

How is it different? Countries get a set number of entrants from the league positions, plus an extra if a club wins the previous competition but doesn't qualify.

No they don't. When Cheslea won the CL and finished 6th Spurs got bumped into the Europa League having finished 4th. The new rules allow a maximum of 5 teams per country but if 2 Spanish teams - for example - win The Champions and Europa Leagues this season but both finish outside the top 4 in the league then the 4th placed team in the league gets bumped into the Europa League.

If UEFA want to invite competition winners into the CL that's fine but it shouldn't be at the expense of teams who happen to play in the same league.

Chance of that happening? As close to 0% as you can get. 6 teams qualifying for the Champions League from 1 country, meaning 1 drops down, will probably never happen.

I agree that it's unlikely, but the fact remains that them's the rules now.

I don't see how the two are connected. That it's unlikely to be tested doesn't make it any less ridiculous.

Surely it's only 'ridiculous' if it's expected to happen every year... it's a strong word for something that is purely hypothetical until (if) it happens!

That it's unlikely, if anything, makes it more ridiculous, not less, because part of the ridiculousness is that it's so unlikely ever to be needed. It's not like it's going to resolve a frequently experienced problem.

However, my main issue with it is that there appears to be no logical reason for it. Why is 6 teams too many but 5 is OK? If you were going to say that only the original number of teams per country could enter (so 4 and 2 from England) then that might make sense, but if you're allowing countries to have additional places for winning competitions why allow 1 but not 2?

ps. perhaps you would use 'bizarre' instead of 'ridiculous'. I don't think ridiculous is a particularly strong word but each to their own.
