Anyone upset we have not qualified for Europe?

Post by Smudge3920 »

Is anyone seriously upset we have not qualified for Europe this year?...

Personally I am not, I do not think we are ready, do not have the depth for all the extra games that would be involved at this level... all good things come to those who wait ...another year then 22/23 imo.

Not at all but if it happened would have gladly accepted it as you can't choose these things.
Agree with the previous poster "slowly slowly".

We are not ready yet.

The squad is far too small to concentrate on both the PL & Europa Cup.

No, as Leon says we aren't ready. Couple of injuries in key positions and we are really stretched.

Second season will be more difficult, we need to concentrate on building and securing our place in the league. Don't need the distraction.

Europe has never entered my head.
Staying up was the priority.
And as the season progressed and staying up became inevitable, a plus goal difference was all I'd wish for.. may still happen 🙏

Absolutely... we don't want second season syndrome.. Look at Sheff U and the dog botherers in recent years..🤔

Also the season starts really early due to the preliminary matches weeks before the PL begins,

Can't say I'm disappointed. The Europa cup and whatever the new competition is called means extra games & Thursday games in far away spots it also means more Sunday matches as well . This season was about staying up., next season is about consolidation and establishing ourselves as a PL team European football is something to work towards

European qualification nearly destroyed Burnley a couple of seasons back. Their poor form in that competition totally bled into their league games.
