I`d hazard a guess that next Sunday could very well be considered the biggest game in our history.

Although we`ve always been a little apprehensive about qualifying for Europe, especially with all the extra games and travel involved, it does give our club the chance to promote itself on a bigger stage.

If we can avoid defeat against Everton, it`ll not matter what Spurs do up at Liverpool. Seventh place will be ours and that crucial last European qualifying place.

After the 1-0 win against Newcastle, up at St James Park, Aaron Hughes commented on what has been a great season, remarking,

“The priority for us this season was to stay in the league, make sure we got to 40 points as quickly as possible and not struggle as we did last time. We`ve ended up doing a fair bit more than that and what`s pleasing is the way we`ve done it.”

“We know we`re close to a European place and we`d certainly take that, but that has to go down as a real bonus. Hopefully, we`ll have a good summer and take it from there. Every year the league has a team that surprises you and we`ve done that.”


Surprised! Pleased as punch I`d say!

  • At the start of this season I was optimistic, but didn’t expect much. Fairly calm, overall. The start of next season I have a feeling I’ll be a bundle of nerves. Oddly enough, I’m looking forward to it.

  • trouble is – Roy will find it hard to better this finishing position as those above us will spend big!

  • yea we may as well enjoy it if we can cus i can guarentee that WH, Spurs and City will bring in big names and go all out next season

  • I won’t be disappointed if we don’t improve. Slow and steady, you know? If we can maintain top-ten, I’ll be content. Continue building from there. West Ham are not in the best financial position. Don’t know how much business they’ll be doing this summer. City will certainly improve. They’ll replace the back line except for Zabaleta and push for 5th/6th. Spurs will overspend for the like always and Redknapp will be out by January.

  • it is truely hilarious watching spurs… hopefully they realize what they’ve got in redknapp and stick with him, but i really wouldn’t put my mortgage on it…

    manc city will get better, but slowly, or they’ll implode and get rid of hughes…

    for me, top ten finishes will please me as well… i don’t expect to play european football the following season, and each season brings it’s own challenges… we’ve been relatively healthy this season, and things could have been much different if that weren’t the case… we need to keep our heads, and first things first, hold onto roy.

  • Roy is the key, I don’t think we’ll see many bad buys from Roy he knows what type of player we need and has the knowledge and talent to spot a bargain, who would have thought the Etuhu would turn to be as good as he is and fit in so well. I did have fears after Bull**** went that we would suffer, but there was no down turn if form after he went. We just kept on doing our job and playing the right way. In Roy we trust.
