Where are you putting your money ?
There's an argument to say that the players (and more importantly manager) are more likely to stay if we reach Europe.I think we will sneak 7th but secretly I don't want us in Europe next season - with the possibility of losing some of our better players I think it would be a step too far at the moment. I would prefer 8th and another good crack at the League and domestic cups next season.
All very reasonable arguments for Europe.There's an argument to say that the players (and more importantly manager) are more likely to stay if we reach Europe.
West Ham made the Europa SF last season and still finished 7th in the league. We've been much better than them this season.
And with the strength of the EPL, we might have a better chance of winning the Conference League than the FA Cup.
West Ham do have the handicap of spending shit loads on crap players tbf.All very reasonable arguments for Europe.
However, West Ham have played 14 Conference League games so far in Europe this season and have only just pulled away from relegation. They have a bigger squad than us and a bigger spend, so I do fear we will struggle. With the defeats against Forest and Everton we do seem to be paying for our FA cup exploits and some poor fixture scheduling earlier in the season which could have helped us out.
If we make Europe I will be as excited and proud as everyone else , just think it may be a tough ask for us.
