The run in
Now that we're well and truly into the squeaky bum part of the season, I think it's time to discuss something we're not often involved in - the race for Europe.

Even though we only have four games left we can still finish as high as 2nd or as low as 11th. Two more points will at least guarantee us top ten though.

I'm ignoring Manchester United, as it looks like they're out of reach (for us at least) and have probably sealed 2nd.

However we can't write off Leeds (currently 11th) in the race for European football just yet, as technically they can finish as high as 5th.

So who's got what?:

3rd: Leicester with 63 points, 4 games to go and a goal difference of +22.

Games left: H Newcastle; A Man Utd; A Chelsea; H Spurs.

4th: Chelsea with 61 points, 4 games to go and a GD of +22.

Games left: A Man City; H Arsenal; H Lelcester; A Villa.

5th: WHU with 58 points, 4 games to go and a GD of +11.

Games left: H Everton; A BHA; A WBA; H Soton.

6th: Spurs with 56 points, 4 games to go and a GD of +22.

Games left: A Leeds; H Wolves; H Villa; A Leicester.

7th: Liverpool with 54 points, 5 games to go and a GD of +16.

Games left: H Soton; A Man Utd; A WBA; A Burnley; H Palace.

8th: Everton with 52 points, 5 games to go and a GD of +3.

Games left: A WHU; A Villa; H Sheff Utd; H Wolves; A Man City.

9th: Arsenal with 49 points, 4 games to go and a GD of +9.

Games left: H WBA; A Chelsea; A Palace; H BHA.

10th: Aston Villa with 48 points, 5 games to go and a GD of +10.

Games left: A Man Utd; H Everton; A Palace; A Spurs; H Chelsea.

11th: Leeds with 47 points, 4 games to go and a GD of -2.

Games left: H Spurs; A Burnley; A Soton; H WBA.

It's a bit quirky that 3 of the top 6 have an identical goal difference of +22, but ours looks a bit weak in comparison.

On the other hand I think all bar Liverpool would swap for our run in! Sadly we have two bogey teams and then Big Sam looms large, so it's a bit difficult to get too carried away.

Both Leicester and Chelsea have tough run ins, so it wouldn't be that big a surprise to see it go all the way to the final whistle.

What do you all reckon?

Whatever happens we can at least agree it's been an amazing season.

Re: The run in
If we get Europa cup hope we get Betis Pellegrinis team.
Give him dog's abuse on a hot Thursday night.

Re: The run in
However I think we will win/draw, Spurs will lose and Everton will get a point at City...well i hope.

Wonder the last time neither Arsenal or Spurs we're in Europe?

Re: The run in
We could have got CL but EL is good.

My plastic Scouse mate thinks I support Man Utd because of my dislike for Scouse.

Any suggestions for a come back ?

Re: The run in
Even if we lose I can't see Spurs beating Leicester as the latter need a result.

If Everton beat City 4-0 and we lose 5-0 then we're in trouble.

Re: The run in
Still a chance of us finishing the season having missed out on Champions League by one lousy point.

Stuff it, I hope Liverpool and Chelsea lose 5-0, Leicester draw and we win 10-0.

Then deduct 25 points from each of the ESL muppets.

Ryan Mason is the worst caretaker since Ian Huntley

Re: The run in
Looked at the Spurs pod thing last night they said the manager should be called Ryan Mates on and that Real Madrid won’t want Regulon back , with that slice the only job he’ll get is at Pizza Hut!

Re: The run in
That Spurs OG was something else and how the fuck Dier gets anywhere near an international football squad, let alone team, is beyond me.

Re: The run in
I doubt either Everton/Arse or Spurs are fussed about 7th.

Sunday should be a great day for us, cementing 6th spot and EL football, with the fans in. Hopefully the sun is out to top it off.

Nagel 8:42 Thu May 20
Re: The run in
I'd definitely put Arsenal as favourites for 7th but Everton might be in with a shout as well if Spurs don't win. I know it's against Man City but it's a nothing game to them and they have the CL final in 6 days.

Re: The run in
unless they throw the game v brighton, I think arsenal get the last european place (that's if they want to play in the conference). it's spurs are fucked, as they won't beat leicester away

joyo 1:46 Thu May 20
Re: The run in
Think Arsenal will be ok next season with no European football plus not in debt....Spurs on the other hand...ha ha ha ha
We're going on a European tour!!!!!

That was a cracking finish.
I can see Tottenham and Arsenal plumetting down the table year - both clubs are in chaos and won't be able to attract top players due to their non qualification for Europe. Harry Kane's sale will pay off some off Spurs' stadium debt but what then?
Us, Leicester and Leeds if they carry on improving as they have will all finish above them comfortably.

That was a great own goal from Spurs to be fair!

i still fancy Leicester to beat the "walking dead" on
sunday and get over the line with Chelsea drawing at Villa .

Spurs went all "Spursy". The gift that never stops giving.

Re: The run in
Well finally we win and the curse of my thread is lifted... phew!

We’re definitely going to finish above Arsenal!

Well done Moyes and the boys - 62 points takes some doing.
