The Race for 4th Place Trophy


#182

You have bumped last seasons thread :wink: how many drinks you had aussie? Lol

Maybe close this one? @shamrockgooner


#183

We should probably start a new 1 then lol. As for the drinks only 2 beers for the night, now I’ve hit 30 I’m to old to get get caught up in New Year’s Eve carryon :rofl:


#184

Who gives a fuck. We have lost it today. Thanks Dean!


#185

There is! You went passed it looking for this one haha


#186

So what are chances of winning this trophy now? Frankly, I think we aren’t going to make it for a second season running. I don’t think there is a top 6 in the league, not this year at least. There is a top 1 (City), the next 4, and then the likes of us and Burnley. With Alexis and perhaps Ozil on their way out, I think we will do well to hold on to 6th this season, and honestly, I am not very confident of that either.


#187

People keep trying to group us in with Burnley but I just don’t get it. We are on a terrible run yet still remain five points clear of Burnley, not to mention they have a -1 GD. I know everyone is unhappy about the state of the club but there is no need to over-exaggerate. We aren’t at that level, even at our absolute worst we’re just behind the scum.


#188

I’d make Manchester United slight favourites to claim the trophy this year, a trophy that by right should be ours every year but now we’re slipping away from it.

We could just invent a 6th Place Trophy and give ourselves more of a chance? Although I suppose there isn’t a prize for a 6PT


#189

I don’t think Burnley are going to finish above us but spurs will.
I think a few supporters are worried that if we finish behind spurs after yet another season, when we have Sanchez and Ozil, then we could go behind them even further, without them.


#190

Yeah going by GD we have a top 1 then next 4 and us a clear 6th Miles off the teams ahead of us but substantially better than 7th.


#191

6 points off Liverpool with 12 matches to go including Spuds, City and Utd left to play.

Europa still our best bet


#192

You simply aren’t going to get a top 4 place in this day and age by winning 5 times away from home or so all season, I’ve felt Europa has been our best bet all campaign.


#193

Next week it’s gonna be decisive. Make or break.


#194

This is last season’s thread :joy: stop bumping it

This is this season’s

Close this one maybe? @Bl1nk


#195
