Good on yer, Weyspurs, what's wrong with dreaming a little.
We all do it sometimes, whether it's a Ferrari, winning the lottery or Kylie (steady Jimmy Pearce). It ain't gonna happen, especially for Jimmy, but so what.
I agree about 4th spot being jumped up, but we are where we are and if it brings CL to WHL, with the chance of playing the best teams in Europe then I say Bring it On.
It also raises our profile a little and will assist in attracting/keeping better players so that we can push to the next level. So I see 4th spot as a means to an end rather than a glory thing.
I guess most spuds will see it that way too....... once the initial excitement fades.

Nothing wrong with being optimistic about 3rd - yeah it's a stretch, but it could still happen.
And why is the CL important? Because if we get there it will attract some players and possibly retain a few others - everyone wants to test themselves in Europe and the CL is the premier competition in Europe. Plus we will get some additional income, and our financial guys really seem to know what they are doing when it comes to managing our money (we ain't called the yids for nothing!).
More money + CL = better players = better chance of really pushing and competing against the historical dominance of Manure, Chelski, and the Gooners, & maintaining top 4 spot - better chance of holding off the money of City (with the money they have they will eventually get it together). Plus - more European games = more experience = improved performance = more competitive.
So - in the long term, if we want to regain the glory days of the '60's, and compete for the EPL top spot, we must get into the CL.
I think we'll get #4 & FA Cup - but if I had to choose - it's a no brainer - gotta be 4th.
