As much as I'd love to see us go and beat Tottenham in their own stadium and secure a top 4 finish (and keep the push for stealing 3rd from Chelsea alive) Am I the only one really hoping for the most boring 0-0 just to keep us comfortably ahead and focus on the Newcastle and Everton games. Maybe it's just nerves of being so close and not wanting to see it all slip away and fall into the hands of Tottenham of all teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am cool about it all if I'm honest SK, of course I want us to beat spurs and secure top 4 in the best way possible, failing that I want us to secure top 4 v Newcastle and at a push on game 38 v Everton.

But if none of these things were to happen, then after we've all kicked the dog, grounded the kids for a month for daring to smile in the very same week that Arsenal missed out on CL football and told the missus to cancel the family holiday in August, how terrible would 5th place really be if we had to settle for it?

5th would be as good as anything we've achieved in the 5 seasons previous to this one and a huge improvement on our last 2 seasons 8th place finish, it would be a move to the very next level for our young guns in which they could acclimatise themselves to having the ballance midweek European games and still continuing to in improve in our domestic league.

If push came to shove and we had no choice but to accept 5th and EL football, would it really be the end of the world? Or a chance for our young guns to play and progress in a competition they genuinely could win and use this year's experience to be a year older and wiser and far better equipped next season.

As far as worse case scenarios go, we've known far worse.

I want us to go and smash them in that cesspit of a stadium!

Lose at Spuds win last two games still in our hands! I’m with MA when he says let’s go for it on Thursday! We’re not good enough defensively to play out a draw! We’ve won the title at their place twice why not a champions league place too. Who’d have thought a team with Eddie, Soares El Nenny and Holding and Xhaka ( half the outfield players ) would have kept us challenging for third and fourth) ! Wait until we buy well again in the Summer and Saliba in Wow! Can’t wait! Behind the sofa in Thursday though ???VTH.

I wouldn't want to lose the 4th spot to the spuds what so ever. As much as the 5th place is an improvement for the previous couple of years as much as I will be massively disappointed to lose all this season hard work in the last couple of games where we should be looking at Chelsea not spurs imo.

Totally agree Moe mate.

We have to turn up wanting to win that game while being level headed if we get a point we're still only need 1 win.

Anyone getting the feeling we might need Lacazette on Thursday?

ABBA!

For years some have moaned about the "comfy club" and "complacency". And now, when we're in a decent position for the first time in years due to hard graft, it's suddenly ok for expectations to be lowered? Who writes these scripts?

My issue isn't with settling for 5th place. My issue is saying it's ok to take your foot off the pedal. Every game should be a fight. Every game should be a game where the players WANT to win and show that desire on the pitch. If after this, we finish 5th, that's ok. Certainly not ok not to try though.

Bang on Sharpe.

Cesspitt of a stadium lol it's only one of the best in the world.

11 May 2022 14:51:52
It’s not the stadium raver, it’s the smell of the clientele.

11 May 2022 16:01:33
LOL Mala! You're naughty! haha.
