That probably seemed like a direct dig at you mate. It wasn't intended that way as you're one of the few that has got Wenger and Kroenke worked out.
My point is that finishing 4th will be dressed up as a fantastic achievement but it will only prolong this nightmare. The last 20 years have shown that Wenger will never, never win the CL so what is the point of qualifying for it and getting humiliated yet again ??
The longer Le Turnip stays, the harder it will be for his replacement to close the gap so we should be focussed purely on getting him out, not on reinforcing his version of what counts as success.
I wouldn't worry too much - despite Ty and his fellow lickers of Arsene's pipe protestations to the contrary, there's more chance of plaiting fog than this ragbag bunch of James Blunts finishing in the top 4. The new normal is the Europa League - once TO1AW finds a new normal there's no turning back. Champions became 2nd in 2005.....from there 3rd and 4th was the badge of honour......now its 5th and 6th......and we're a decent manager and foreign owner away (at another team) from it being 7th and 8th. He never rebounds, choosing instead to mither over FFP rules and look over the fence in everyone else's garden.
Its a shame Everton flunked this season, albeit they seem to have bounced a bit now and got top half, otherwise I was certain of 7th place. Now I'm certain its 6th. I'm enjoying Podgytino's minor collapse of late but they'll still finish above us and the four who are there now certainly will too. An average Liverpool team with one of the most shit keepers and backlines in living memory will still piss all over us at the Bowl again to confirm another rinsing by a top team and from there we will flip flop between 5th and 6th, before ending up 6th and exiting in the Thursday Night Cup as soon as we draw a CL exiting team with a half decent tactical manager.
Hope springs eternal though with the catalyst for change as we sweep aside Crewe, Mansfield, Newport, Sunderland, West Ham and Swansea en route to winning the FA Cup
