Mate, can you honestly give me an example of any team that hasn't struggled the season they have to play in the qualifying rounds? Because I can't. It's not predicting the future, it's experience taken from not just our season currently, but all the other teams affected too.I’ve no idea about other teams and don’t really care. However if we’re not in it our chances of buying better players diminish, we’ll have zero chance of winning it and what’s the point in even trying? Might as well just finish 8th every season.
If other teams struggle, that’s their problem. Let’s be the team that doesn’t struggle and push through it.
And really four extra games shouldn’t make that much difference.
