After the convincing win against Fulham, there will be no stopping the Villa now. Roll on Europe.

Too right.

I can't wait to have those heady Europa League nights back again.

What were those eastern europeans we played that time, the ones whose fans all looked like ukrainian coal miners. Team had a Z in its name.

Unforgettable nights.

You may mock but despite a horrible season we're still only six points behind apparent 'Champions League' hopefuls (don't laugh), Liverpool.

Hopefully, this win ought to put the relegation thoughts to bed considering we're 11 points, technically 12 with GD, off the bottom three. With that pressure off our backs a top 10 finish should be a realistic target with Bolton, Stoke, WBA and Norwich amongst our fixtures.

I'll be dissapointed with anything less than the Premier League title and an automatic place in the Champions League final through some 'FIFA Fair Play' bollocks.

Come on now is not the time to start talking about Europa  when Champion's League qualification  is still possible. No looking back now Alex onwards and upwards....

I bet he'll settle for 4th place though, rather than pushing for third. The defensive minded bastard. McQuiche out!

Depends who wins the cups. At the moment it's 5th and 6th being as Liverpool almost won't definitely qualify for the Champions League.

Assuming 2x mancs +arse and Spuds qualify for CL and Chelsea and Newcastle finish 5  and 6 than 7th is academic because lpool have won the CC so they will get the 3rd spot wherever they finish in the League. The only way 7th place comes into play is if Lppol finish 6th or higher.
So we  could get into Europe by finishing above Everton, Sunderland and Newcastle and hope Lpool finish 6th.

The other possibility is to finish as high as possible and than have the best fair play record. That is least number of yellow and red cards.
