I think we can finish 6th this season. Forget spurs and above, too far ahead and too much quality, but the rest including Chelsea and Liverpool are teams we could pass if they continue being mediocre and we can continue our run.

Having said that, injuries and squad depth, esp up front, are our biggest risk.

Chelsea and Fulham draw, so its an opportunity to go above Chelsea in the table today.
Emery stressed how the next step is to get into the top 10.
Let it be so!

If we win today and Citeh beat Spurs tomorrow then we're 5 points behind them with a game in hand. Not saying we'll overtake them but it's not insurmountable. An injury to Kane and Spurs being Spursy could derail their season just as much as injury to a Kamara or Watkins could ours.

I think I should just shut up.

After today I think this whole thread should be closed down.

I suspect we’re still going to be focussed on looking down rather than up for a while.

At least with Palace losing we're still locked in our one way battle to finish 11th.  I think we'll have two crushing defeats against Man City and Arsenal though, and we know how mentally weak this lot are, so think the rest of the season will limp on to nothingness after that.

Better to look at points.

Last season we limped to 45 points under a poor manager but still could've got more if we'd hung on to the leads late on v Palace and Man. City fo course.

17 games still left so if we average a point a game from now we'll equal that.

We should be doing better than that though even if games like today make that harder. Win 7 games and draw a couple and we'll be in the 50-55 range and that probably won't be far off what Chelsea, Liverpool and Fulham finish on.

We've won 3/3 on the road under Emery so far so two more away wins shouldn't be beyond us and winning another 5 home games to get to double figures in home games is still just about a realistic target.

Liverpool and Chelsea are in transition, and it is possible that this will continue into next season.
Of course, this season with the World Cup break is unique, and promoted Fulham, Brentford, and the most impressive Brighton have all performed admirably.

The league is very interesting in that the Spurs haven't looked particularly impressive this season despite sitting in fifth place. Leicester, Wolves, and West Ham have all been excellent in recent seasons but are lowly in league and not in the top haf.

League Table as it Stands 5th Feb (rest of feb fixture in brackets)

6th Brighton 34pts
 (Crystal Palace a, Fulham h)
7th Brentford 33pts
 (Arsenal a, Palace h)
8th Fulham 32pts
 (Forest h, Brighton a, Wolves h)
9th Chelsea 30pts
(West Ham a, Southampton h, Spurs a)
10th Liverpool 29pts
(Everton h, Newcastle a, Crystal Palace a)
11th Aston Villa 28pts
(Man city a, Arsenal h, Everton a)

Who knows where Villa will finish given the 6 points and 2 wins separating us in 11th and Brighton in 6th.

Fixtures this month see:
6th Brighton and 8th Fulham are to play each other soon so dropped points will occurring to at least one team.
Brentford and Brighton only play 2 matches a chance to gain on them

Whereas others lost faith and gave up in February I hadn't.
Chelsea we are to finish ahead of and there's a chance to be finishing above Spurs.

Now the only question is will we finish ahead of Spurs and Brighton?

This depends on results in the games to play.

I reckon Luton will pull off a comedy, sub 15 points season.

I've always wondered if it ever crossed the mind of a small team coming up to just think 'fuck it', take the cash, accept relegatation but secure the clubs future for a long time.
