Il faut que j'y aille is translated as "I must go" but shouldn't it be "I must go there" - or is the "there" implied?
This question relates to:French lesson "Il faut que is always followed by Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood)"

As Chris rightly says, the " y" in Il faut que j'y aille is idiomatic. we don't really know what it refers to and a better English translation would be, I've got to go .
Hard to explain it's just how it is .
Hope this helps!
