A Double-Edged Sword!

A Double-Edged Sword!

This Fair Play League and its subsequent possibility of providing us with a back-door route into the Europa League, next season, is something of a double edged sword.

Now whilst we`d love to sample the giddy delights of Europe again, even getting close to replicating that wonderful run that saw us descend, en-masse, on Hamburg, Mark Hughes has been quick t point out the negative side of qualifying via this method, meaning the close season is almost squashed to nothing, commenting,

"I think it feels like a chore because of where we are this season - it`s been a long one."

"You feel there`s a point close to the end of the season where you are looking for a break so that you can come back refreshed."

"There`s a real concern that maybe that will not be available to us if we come back at an earlier date."

"It`s positive that you are in Europe. But you don`t get that key time you need to recover."


So our question to you is - would you prefer it if we gave the Europa League a miss?

didn't we have this discussion before the europa league last time? would anyone trade the final for a higher place in the league? even if we don't make the final, those european nights were wonderful... make the sacrifice..
