A decent backup keeper.  Even Joe Cole made the point as to the unfamiliarity about a back up keeper giving the wrong vibes.

This is the year we qualify for the (modern) CL.  It has to be too, because we have a few players who will be high on other clubs shopping lists.

5th could well be CL. However it does mean wanting all English clubs to do as well as possible, which is shit as I usually want them all to be shit in Europe.

Most of them will do well without wanting it to happen. It would brilliant to get in even if it is by way of 5th spot.

The only time in the last 7 seasons when England didn't finish top 2, which is what's needed for a 5th spot, was the last time 8 English teams were in Europe as it means every win by an English club will be worth slightly less to the coefficient score because it's an average of eight clubs rather than seven.

Our priority is winning the league...

the FA Cup,
The conference league and ensuring we go unbeaten for the rest of the season.

Anything less and Unai out.

I'm convinced that 5th and champions league is the ambition. If going out of all the cups with a whimper enables that to happen then I'm sure the owners would snatch your hand off.

I think I would too, tbh. There's always next year for the league/FA Cup when we've got some semi competent back up players and our injured ones back. Champs league money would help that enormously.

I donít ever think Emery wants to lose, but of the ones he gives least of a shit about it would be the LC.

How does it actually work? We finish 5th and then we could be potentially waiting a few weeks on English clubs to win CL and Europa?

I can remember in the 90s needing Chelsea to win old Cup Winners cup for us to make europe. John Gregory told a funny story on one of the podcasts of them watching the guy on end of season tour and the old kitman Jim Paul slagging off Zola when he came on and of course he scored the winner a few minutes later.

Let's just win the europa coference to make sure.
