    I don't want us to qualify for Europe.

    Relegation would almost certainly follow, we just don't have the depth of squad for that malarkey.

    Season after next perhaps?

    I think you have to finish in the top seven to have a chance to qualify for Europe,so we are definitely not going into Europe..I think we will manage a top 12 finish though..

    Top 6 usually but top 7 this year is possible depending on who wins the Cup and Europa League

    7th place is nailed on to qualify because one of the top six will inevitably win the FA Cup. City will win the League so their Europa League place by winning the Mickey Mouse Cup is up for grabs.

    I will say again. We do not need that Europa League crap at this moment in time!

    The last thing the current version of Burnley Football Club needs is to qualify for a second rate European tournament which would stretch the clubs resources to a maximum. PL survival ………without anything astonishing happening………..is secured……..job done as far as the club is concerned. Let’s face it, finishing 7th is a fantasy, finishing 10th or thereabouts would be considered more than a successful season. I’ll guarantee the clubs’ hierarchy would agree,

    Amen to that Exile.

    We can have a proper go at the FA Cup though.

    The players point of view seems to be to finish as high as we can and let whatever comes after that will be!

    The players have it spot on BT. Any chance of a spot kick for us this weekend do you suppose?

    I would be disappointed if any of our players did not want to play at the highest level possible ---that should be the main reason for being a footballer.
    A spot kick outwood? Hart possibly back in goal this weekend too.

    No chance whatsoever outwood. No one likes us, no one likes us...

    Not very sure why this post is nothing more than a continuation of an identical post recently?

    but-
    1. Not wanting success is a tad strange in my view. Give me 7th not mid table.
    2. Next year or the year after will not change a damn thing unless we are compelled to weed out the poor buys and superfluous players and commit to bettering the squad. Traditionally we keep faith with what we have for far longer than we should so in that case Europe now, please, which will pressure getting full squad playing staff fit for purpose allowing us better bench players and better tactical options.
    3. Waiting until we are "ready" for Europe is like waiting until we are "ready" for promotion. And as we have been promoted against the odds it seems particularly strange that we seem to keep forgetting that.
    4. Leicester won the league against the odds. You can't wait until you are "ready". Ask Chelsea; Man Utd and Arsenal.

    I really hope we can hit 55 points this season which will almost certainly get us into Europe.

    With Sean Dyche in charge anything is possible.

    From a personal point of view, I want to fly around Europe watching the Clarets but then again, I have always been a selfish sod!

    Squad wise I assume Arfield is going? That means we will need two more wide men.

    Up top we have Vokes, Walters, Wells, Wood and Barnes so another striker would be good.

    Add two more midfield men and with everybody fit we should be able to compete on all fronts.

    Squeaky bum time I know, but I'll bet SD is up for the challenge?
