The Race for 7th

Everton fans on their forum don't want to play in the Europa League, as it may be a hinderance for next season. All are our rivals lost on the weekend and Watford probably will lose against Arsenal. 

Hinderance for next season? They're shit every year. They could easily finish 15th with no European football. 

 

I see no valid reason why a 25 man squad cant deal with the extra games. I think we have just legitimised the excuses of managers and players for their failures over the years.

I'm not looking at us getting 7th. Yes fixtures last weekend did go our way but we've stil got to play some tough fixtures and can't see us getting the points required. I don't see this as a lost opportunity in the last few fixtures, I say we lost 7th place with results earlier on. Drawing and losing games to teams that we really should be beating if we have aspirations of Europe.

 

There's been missed opportunities throughout and not just the Newcastle game. Over the course of the season we don't deserve it, we've just not been consistent enough to warrant it. May not even get Europe if Watford somehow win the FA cup. 

 

Don't get me wrong, if we do get 7th and Europe then I'll be delighted, but realistically I can't see it.

Realistically though, who in the league outside Liverpool and Man City have been consistent.

Look at Wolves record vs Top 6 compared to their record over the bottom 6.

Over the course of a season you finish where you deserve.

With 4 games to go we are 7th, Wolves are level on points and Everton and Watford a further point behind.

Yes Watford and Wolves have a game in hand, but they also play each other.

 

We have 4 games left and in the reverse fixtures of these games we picked up 7 points. 

I see no reason we can’t match that now and that would mean Wolves would need 8 points from 5 games, Watford and Everton 9 points.

 

I don’t get why everyone is so down on our chances and some of the words used on this thread are embarrassing.

 

Also don’t get any fan that doesn’t want us to get Europe this season based on the fact it might make it harder for us to get Europe next season.

 

Lets go all out and do this! I look forward to seeing you all for Getafe away!

To be fair to Puel, he got his fair share of results against the bigger sides. Let's see how Rodgers takes charge of these situations

Brave.. very brave. The anti-Puel trumpet brigade may pounce on you for saying that

I think we’ll (just) miss out this season, but we should be trying to finish as high as possible. 

 

The ‘we’ll be better next year’ argument can always be used but never proved. 

 

I think you just have to take these opportunities when they come...really there is no guarantee we’ll have a stronger squad in a year’s time. 

 

Absolutely. 

 

Do people really not want to qualify for Europe so that we can concentrate on qualifying for Europe next season?

This is the best response to those wanting to 'postpone' qualification until next year.

 

The fact is we don't know what situation we or our rivals will find ourselves in next season. You can end up wanting to wait for an ideal position of strength that's never likely to come.

Just out of curiosity did you go to any of the away games last time we were in Europe? I was lucky enough to go to Copenhagen and I honestly don't know how any fan who's experienced seeing their club away in a city like Copenhagen wouldn't want a bit more of that.

I did go, Seville and Madrid. Just don't think we're ready for it. If we were in Europe next season, it wouldn't allow Brendan to get the players he wants in, with the squad neeeding an overhaul. I just worry that if we were in Europe next season it would ruin our league season. Much prefer us to build in the summer and really push on next season and get into Europe comfortably. Of course I want those away days again but I'm willing to be patient to be more successful in Europe and in the league.

Exactly.

 

Its quite alarming just how poor you can actually be as a side and still finish 7th-10th. That 2nd season under Ranieri shown us that you can be the most monumental **** up of a side and still put a run together and nearly get top half.
