Imho. ..talk of Europe is nonsense we've had one decent game in ten ,we would have to improve immensely to even wiff the top eight ...just can't see it .

But by all means would love to be proved wrong about it and Sam too .

Although I doubt it .

7th should be out the question given our season. However, reality is we are somehow two teams and 4pts from getting into that position. Burnley's form has not been particularly great and Mahrez just got messed around by a high profile move again.

Whether 7th means Europe is another question, frankly I'd rather it didn't given our last time out and I don't think we have the squad for multiple fronts yet. Maybe that changes in the summer though.
Exactly this ...


We don't need Europe till we have an idea of the difference between arses and elbows .

Said it before and will say it again


Whats the point in not playing for europa league? So we can have a strong season next year and qualify for . . . . . . . . . . . . . . europa league
Yes I see what your getting at ,but we can barely play league games at the minute ,a year out of the Europa will do is the world of good at the minute imho it may help with recruitment .....but let's face it ...it was nothing but a hinderance this year. no ?.

Would love a europa final me. The club need to be playing European competiton if we are ever going to be able to have the affffffffrontery to regard ourselves as a big club in any sense of the word.

Don't think we'll get that though, not sure 7th is within grasp tbh, especially as the other night was our best performance in months and they still hit the woodwork three times and had one cleared off the line!
Loving the optimist in you ..."Final" but we lost an easy group in all reality and there are well better teams in the last eight of the comp every year .....to right it's what we should be aiming and striving for every year ,but in reality we are miles away as we witnessed this year on countless nights .

People saying that our squad won't handle Europa footy do realise we get to buy players again the summer?

Hopefully good ones this time round but there's no reason we can't prepare properly for it.
The only plus is ...we can't really do worse than this year either in Europa or the transfer market .
