Finishing 5th won't be the end of the world... as long as we don't lose key members of the existing team. Winning the Europa League would put us in a great position for the year after. the last few months (since we lost to Spurs) have shown we have the talent, we just need the continuity. How many teams could have lost their best players in each of the last two or three seasons but still compete?
The best thing about beating the toon today will be Tottenham 5th (again)
