      Leicester going 6 ahead of us with a better goal difference.

      They've got a tough last three but hard to see how we can get ahead of them so looks like just one spot up for grabs now.

      They’ve got an easy next 3 fixtures aswell. I think they may have done just enough this time to finish there.

      So as you said it’s 1 spot between 4 teams. Tottenham have an easy set of fixtures coming up and despite their shortcomings at the moment, it is difficult to see then dropping too many points.

      There are no easy fixtures this season. Spurs could easily drop points. A draw between West ham and Chelsea would be the best result for us also.

      With top 4 all but gone (judging by our form); it’s europa league qualification we should aim for.
      Top 7 should do it.
      Top 6 definitely will.

      If we miss out completely it could be Everton that pip is to it which would be the icing on the cake of this frustrating season.

      Games we have left

      United (A)
      Southampton (H)
      Wba (A)
      Burnley (A)
      Palace (H)

      I think 8 points from that lot.

      Chelsea have a really difficult last four games, with FA Cup and CL games between, so I’m not completely giving up on Top 4 just yet, but we need to get our act together and beat United, if we don’t, then I give up.

      2 points from the last 6 has confirmed we ain’t doing it. That’s how I see it. I’ve accepted CL qualification is over.

      I'm not giving up but it's so deflating dropping 4 points in a week 😔... I'm not gonna worry about it see what happens next week . The club may not agree but I don't think the Europa will do us any good at all.

      If we get Europa I would use it as a competition for the young lads and have the first team go full on League mode.

      I would like to win the Europa to be fair, nice to add to the lovely European collection we have.

      However, I would also like a decent domestic cup run for once!

      Last two games - against sides we should beat - conceding late equalisers [still f**king pissed to think on it] - don't see us getting enough points to get CL.
      Won't beat Utd. Burnley on an upswing. And need other teams to fuckup.
      Not seeing it.
      2021 has been absolute dogshit. Bit of a CL run brightened it up, apart from that..

      Sheff Utd is the only team we have beaten in the bottom 7 since the rails have come off.

      That’s not Top 4 form by a long shot.

      Some serious rejigging needed for the attack next season and as James Pearce posted in the Athletic today a Top striker should be a priority.

      With *the names* we have up front - Salah, Mane, Firmino, Jota - seems bizarre to say we need to sign a top striker.

      But then you look at results this season.

      Tough choices for Jürgen - does he sell one of the big guys to bring in a top striker? Presume yes, to bring in the cash needed.

      If so, which one? Bob probably wouldn't bring in close to Mane/Salah?
      Jota's just got here.
      So - Mane/Salah to go? Based on form, that could be Mane. Dunno.

      These guys have been SO good for us, would be tough to see one or more of them go - but presume this is exactly what Jürgen will be considering.

      Incredible run by City so far, and I hate them, but can’t see them not getting to CL final and not winning it. Hope we have that same winning passion for 2021/2022!

      Why not rid them at the slightest hint of weakness? Weakness is like cancer. We cannot allow it to exist and spread. The shop window is filled with Top players except our own. This is why some of us who are crazy can easily say none of the players we have are top/world class players including Jürgen. Our poor form is regarded more highly than the trophies we've achieved in recent seasons. It's that crazy.

      It’s the Europa conference for us: probably at best.
      Basically the intertoto cup back.

      It’s also probably the most boring end to a season ever.
      Champions already decided.
      Top 4 pretty much dealt with.
      Relegation all but done.
      Champions league only left with oil money and Madrid:
      Europa league full of dross.
