I'll look it up and get back to you.

'Fraid we've blown it. Liverpool Man C Chelsea and Man u for CL places. Tottenham and Wolves for EL. Maybe Sheff utd could scrape in. Abysmal drop off in form over past 15 games has done for us. Shame.

Lol you know we're still 3rd?

No point worrying about other teams, it’s still in our hands, if we bottle it then it’s our own fault.

 

As for United, they are improving massively, Fernandes has made a huge difference.

Well yeah. It won’t matter who’s fault it is. We need to win. The players need to show fight. They’re playing like a bunch of melts and snowflakes atm.

Calm all. It's still in our hands. Bear in mind City were awful today and Man U won't win every game from now until the end of the season. We are still in the driving seat. Win tomorrow and it's back to 8 points.

Imagine saying we've blown it 5 points clear of 5th.

 

Yes the form hasn't been great but come on man. Just means we'll have to win a few. 

 

To say it's all over is insane.

Thought Fernandes wasn't great today. Yes, he set up the first goal but only because of terrible defending and even worse goalkeeping. Other than that hardly touched the ball.

It is a bit of a joke really. Pep obviously focusing on other competition especially Champions League. Not as fair on teams that are still playing for something ie us. Similar to when opposition are in relegation battles.

But this is the thing. They had Real Madrid four days before playing us. He put out his strongest possible team.
 

He plays his binmen today when they have Arsenal in the week. No selection of Mahrez after not playing against Villa was baffling.

The way we’re playing, we’ll do well to win 3 of our last 10 ffs

Ederson only 'hardly ever makes a mistake' because he's hardly ever called upon.

 

Time after time in the big games where they actually need a decent goalkeeper to bail them out, he lets them down.

 

They won't win a champions league with him in the sticks.

I think the same. Very good with his feet but there's plenty of better shotstoppers than him including Kasper.

Very basic thinking.

Basic I know but now its that obvious if we lose to villa providing that shefield and man u keep their runs going it would take a miracle to finish top 4 and me being a pessimist also taking into account rogers' collapse at liverpool we probably won't even make the europa league.

I thought he'd have gone strong today and Arsenal but weaker against Burnley. Burnley at home should be a walkover for them and then they've got Madrid 3 days after.

Burnley are in amazing form, no reason for them to be a walkover at the moment against anyone.

Wow I would hate to be with some people on here if we were in 6th place and not looking like we would get a champions league spot... They must be the same who have bought 5000 loo rolls just incase...

Win tomorrow and the Chelsea and Manchester Utd results today mean nothing. As you were, so to speak.

Still can't remember him making 2 such blatant errors in one game. Anyway, it's down to our lot now. How much do they want to get in the CL? Need to get into Villa right from the start tomorrow and hope that their keeper doesn't have yet another blinder.

What about when we were bottom of the league 5 seasons ago, not winning, losing when we could have drawn, in poor form - what happened after that? Escaped relegation with a game to spare, finishing the season in 14th.

 

People saying 'we don't deserve Europe', 'we'll finish 7th', 'guaranteed to lose out' etc etc is fvcking boring now.

 

We're 3rd. Even if we lose tomorrow, we're still 3rd. There's more than enough games to get enough points to qualify for Europe while other teams around us take points off each other. 

 

Until it's mathematically impossible to qualify/not qualify for CL, we are still in within a shot and I have faith in the manager & players to turn it around. We, as 'fans', need to get behind the squad and show them we still believe in them. If not before now, then starting tomorrow.

They had a strong Feb and good start to March but the only big sides they played have been both North London sides, both at home, and both results were draws.

Yes if we lose and man united win again we would be 2 points ahead of them still but it will be a miracle to finish top 4? Come on fella the glass isn't empty is it? It's at least half empty right? :schlupp:
