Got to love April and May for the Sport alone.

I did it twice. The first time we finished 5th, two points ahead of Arsenal. (Stoke relegated, along with QPR and Reading.) The second time - with slightly different results, obviously - we finished 6th, two points behind Chelsea (with Villa going down instead of Stoke).
I recommend giving it a go!

It's bloody hard to estimate the results for other teams. It's easier for us, because we know in our heart of hearts that there is no way will lose another game this season. Er... is there?

Spurs have City which is hopefully good for us, and for once I'll be hoping Liverpool win when they take on Chelsea... ok, draw.

Gazing into the mist-shrouded future, I prophecy that Fulham-Arsenal, Spurs-City and Liverpool-Chelsea will all be draws. Unfortunately, I fear our game will be as well. More optimistically, if Spurs lose and we win, then we go above them on goal difference.

Tottenham are catchable and perhaps Arsenal if they have a shocker or two.
I think we all felt a win was needed on Tuesday and it continues to look that way. If only a striker had arrived in January...

It may be a better bet to look at Chelsea. They still have Liverpool, Swansea, Utd, Spurs, Villa, Us... all with Europa and FA Cup in between.
If we're looking to overhaul Spurs then jeez, all for the Europa Cup? We've got 15 good players who are already running on fumes and Europa brings nothing to the bank for investment.

I know it's not a money spinner but it's an adventure, isn't it? A bit of glamour. As for exhausting our squad and causing us to underperform in the Premiership, well, we've had no European distractions for a couple of seasons and it hasn't helped us. Look at it positively: if we'd been playing in Europe this season then maybe some of our younger players would have developed quicker. Also, sitting on the bench has got to be a drag, I'm sure non-first-teamers would rather be getting a run out away at Lazio than simply not playing.
Oh, and by the way, Chelsea are out of the FA Cup.
