Im confident we get top 5. We have a very tough patch coming up but so do Utd.
I think this is about right. Need to start playing properly though.

I think there’s a lot more to come from this side than has recently been shown.

We CAN go on a run of wins. Whether we will or not, I have no idea

I can't see us coming anywhere other than 5th. ATM Villa seem slightly too good for us, can't see us getting a result there, United are poor.

Need to be cheering on the English sides this week, especially (really sorry for saying this out loud) West Ham

I still haven't looked at the table as don't feel the need yet. Previous final League tables and points needed are a better indicator for me. Around 4 wins from 12 should be enough for Europe and around 7-8 wins from 12 should be enough for top 4.

I hope the Arse and Hammers get stuffed in Europe.

Cheer on any team playing a German team. If Bayern get knocked out by Lazio tomorrow I would say 5th place is sorted. Judging by recent performances it is well on the cards.

When we had Kane we always used to hear, what happens if he gets injured. Never hear, what happens if Ollie Watkins gets injured. They are stuffed if he’s out. At least we always had Son.

Bayern winning isn't ideal, but a) was also mostly expected and factored in b) Lazio going out keeps us in with an outside chance of catching Italy, so that's a silver lining. Hopefully they get a tough draw and lose the QF.

Europa and Conference League games on Thursday are much more important. We want English teams to win, German (and possibly Italian) teams to lose. Of particular importance is the head-to-head between West Ham and Freiburg - if Freiburg pulled off the upset and knocked them out that'd be a real blow and make it pretty much a 50-50 race. On the flip side, if Freiburg go out, and Leipzig don't pull off a miracle in Madrid tomorrow night, things are looking rosie and England will probably have a 90% plus chance.

Very bad night at the moment. Very far from terminal but could definitely do with a turnaround from West Ham here.

How about we just get 4th instead?
We might get 4th this year (although we're one bad result this weekend away from it becoming highly unlikely). We simply are not going to get Top 4 every year in a league with 7 extremely wealthy teams and normally 1-2 others pushing themselves and having good years. Only Man City do it every season, and even then only since Pep came in. It's in our interests for the PL to be strong and generally receive that fifth spot.
