If Preston and Southampton had come up instead of Brum and Derby I'd have given it some serious thought....but no, I'd certainly not take eighth just now.

i hope for UEFA cup again. Champions league is beyond us i think. we know what happened last time we were there anyway!!
We need to consistently finish in a UEFA place over the next 5 years before making the step up. the more consistent we are year in year out then the better players will want to join us, and then the board will have no option but to provide the funds to help to keep us where we are. (and belong)

Why is everyone always so negative about that ffs, we were robbed in a match where our strike force was rendered redundant by cowardly and incorrect refereeing....and that's before you consider the perfectly good disallowed goal...against a team that went on to reach the semi, putting out Manure along the way.

Forty-five minutes in Budapest then fucked us completely for sure, but I'm proud of our performance in the Champs League that year, short as it was. Compare that team to our current one..the players used over the two games were..

Martyn, Hibbert, Neville, Weir, Yobo, Arteta, Cahill, Davies, Kilbane, Osman, Bent, Ferguson, Beattie, Pistone, McFadden

We're light years ahead of that now IMO, and hopefully will be in even better shape come August.

Think I'll go with Ian on this 6th or better, who knows though, need to see a few signing I think to see what our intentions will be

Dont think there have been too many signing so we are not alone in that, think it'll all hot up over the next week after people start to return from their hols

OH so sadly true!...........To have got through that very hard tie,would then have seen
hype kick in and maybe a little run in the compotition.Too many people listened to rs
idiots laying into us!....when in fact they wouldn't have beaten them on anything but
a very good day.......with Gerrard.
