I like being in Europe, but there are downsides and it's hard to totally ignore them.

The league will always be the bread and butter of what makes me happy as a fan, and like it or not when you don't have a deep squad involvement in the EL does appear to make the league more of a challenge. Basically I feel like if we're serious about being in Europe we'd need more investment in the quality of the squad as a whole.

Yes, bar those with a genuine chance of getting Champions League.

Fair enough ...but if you want a proper challenge at the top six ....Europa is best left the fuck alone first...we can't do both ...squad depth and quality is required .

Top clubs play in Europe every year, not if and when they feel like it.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Proper challenge for the top 4 surely.

No point not wanting to be in the EL to challenge for top 6 when 5th and 6th qualify for, er, the EL... :eh:

We should be aiming to win every competition we’re in even the league, not aiming for 6th. Sport is about winning competitions

Allardyce would plan and prepare for the early rounds of the EL much better than Koeman did, and I very much doubt he'd be getting involved in transfer sagas lasting 6 weeks.

We should always want to be in Europe and we shouldn't let Koeman's complete mismanagement cloud our judgement.

Does Big Sam have any meaningful European experience?

Genuine question that. My guess is he's got far less than Koeman.

Probably more than Koeman. He got Bolton into Europe once.

What's Koeman done? Got us there and got sacked half way through the campaign.

Must've had a bunch of campaigns in Europe as a manager before he got to the PL no?

Yeah, true. Forgot he managed in Holland before.

Must be great to be able to predict the future so clearly. What’s the lotto numbers for next week?

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.
