Just An Idea
Posted 14 Jun 2008 - 17:25
Now, I was thinking if we um, 'gave up' this season's UEFA cup, don't get me wrong we did brilliant in it, then maybe we can secure 4th place next time round in the premiership. It would give us a taste at Champions league and inevitably we will head to Uefa cup.( Not sure how Champ teams end up in cup)
Maybe it was not that we were tired, maybe it was the injuries of our regular players, maybe we need a 'star' player to break into, and contend with the top four teams i.e. man u got ron, chel drogba, arse fabre, liv torr.

Can't pull out of the competition so presumably we lose on purpose.
We ran out of steam after we were out of everything this year, while we were playing twice a week the place was buzzing and the run went on and on, no obvious fatigue. I think it was the mental let down that caused the drop in form more than physical problems.
Bad idea, even if it was workable, which it's not.

I think that we did very well in Eufa last year and will have raised our profile alot because of it. We are now having the oppurtunity to attract alot better players this year and this is down in no small part to our performances in europe. We are now in competition with "top four" sides for signatures for players rather than premiership also rans. Whether this is just paper talk or whether we actually get a single player we are linked with at the moment is another thig, but we are now a club that can offer decebt european football, and with good squad numbers we will have alot better chance to spread our talent across the different challenges that lie bofore us.
An honest fan should see that challenging for 4th place is NOT our main objective, challenging for silverware is our MAIN objective. We cannot be expected to realistically challange for 4thb when evey team above us cna spend on one player what we will probably spend on our entire squad in a transfer window
