I'm made up we are likely in Europe again but some are already grumbling. What do you think?

cant wait for it. More games to watch, hoping to get out for a game or two abroad this time. Better to recruit players, shows we are going in the right direction....Champions League is the aim but i think we need a couple of Europa League runs before we head to the top.
I have to return some videotapes.

We have the money to buy good starting players meaning those in the current first team will become squad players, so we will see strength in depth. Looking forward to being in Europe again.

As if we're in any sort of position to scoff at the Europa League.

We need to be in Europe to progress. If for now that has to be the Europa League, great. We should be striving to be in and win every competition we can.

Regular European football is part of the progress, along with getting to semis and finals domestically.

Nobody but Leicester jumps from zero to hero.

Aside from winning the Premier League, is there a more exciting way to qualify for the Champions League?

I want us to win this competition. Badly.

With Europa League it will help us not only attract a higher calibre of player. It will ease the burdon of FFP and allow to increase our wage budget, this will allow us to cope better with the extra games.

In previous years in Europe we barely had any money to spend and our squad was always tiny. Hopefully with our newly found wealth we will be able to cope better!

This.

It's the first step to the next level.

If you let it hinder you season then you only have yourself to blame.

Plus we need the seeding points. We don't want to qualify for the champions league and end up playing the best side in the draw

I for one can't wait to see the blues play some team in Chernobyl in mid July.

Last time it was used as an excuse by Martinez and his fans. I never bought into that. The worst run during that season came during the period the EL was on a break. It is a stepping stone to the CL and it has challenges that need to be and can be overcome with skilled management and some ambition and drive. Personally I can't wait to see us back on a European stage. Onwards and upwards.

I don't remember Martinez using it as an excuse to be fair.

Infact he actually embraced it.
