Good read Dave, the Europe question is a good one, I think it is a season too early for that but with our owners you never know.

Top 10 finish, keep the squad together and upgrade on a few positions and we will push for top 6 next year.

Good read, Dave. Unfortunately, at least in the short term, the price we pay for success is the Europa League, but I suppose we need that over the next two seasons if we're going to keep Jack

Good read as ever. Only slight disagreement is where you say no one at fault for the equaliser. Barkley let the man go there and we got punished.

Slight disagreement, Barkley should never have been marking their most dangerous forward in the first place, the blame surely lands with whoever marshalls the defence at corner kicks.

Yeah it’s odd the marking at set pieces. Wasn’t McGinn picking up one of the tallest players on the pitch we lost a goal to from a set piece recently aswell?

Yep, Mings always seems to just stand in the centre of the 6 yard box while everyone else is running around trying to mark someone, usually bigger than himself. Surely Mings should be told “their best man is yours, make sure he doesn’t get anywhere near it”.
