Fulham - Roy Keen to Secure That Europa Place!

As we approach the final weekend of the Premier League season, all thoughts are directed to finishing in that final European place.

Strangely enough, any apprehensions about the experience having a detrimental effect seem to have become ancient history and even Roy Hodgson appears keen to grasp that final place now and has remarked to the media,

'It would mean a lot. We are all in agreement this has been a very good season for the club so already, we can give ourselves a little pat on the back because we have had a good season. We have finished in the highest-ever position with the highest points total.'

A remarkable achievement in itself considering the much vaunted opposition that surrounds us in the table. Continuing though,

'But if you actually made it into Europe, then you have got an even more tangible evidence of that success because you can say it was a very good season, so much so that we were among the seven best teams in the Premier League and we got into Europe on the back of it.'

'Of course, we will be quite anxious next week to try to get that victory, or possibly that point, which will see us in seventh place. Then we will have a few days where we will congratulate ourselves - and then we will probably turn grey overnight wondering how the hell we are going to repeat it next season.'


I wouldn`t turn grey too quickly Roy, let`s allow ourselves a few weeks to bask in the glory, don`t we deserve it after last season where only something akin to a miracle kept us in the Premier League.
