If last season proved anything it's that we have little to lose. We can fuck up and not fall much behind our par finish. We haven't budgeted for Champions League and missing out on Europa League is considered a blessing.
The shortfall from finishing eighth rather than seventh is easily covered and shouldn't inhibit us from trying to steal a march on better placed clubs by taking a gamble they feel they can't afford.
