    We rule, might make Europa league next year, heard it here first, start by taking care of swans, but leave them high up on the table, more Europa league positions

    We could make it by winning it this year, too!
    Tiote for me but the point is, when the team plays like this, there are several potential MOTM performances throughout the side.

    looking at the remaining fixtures, we can collect 15-17 points more if we have an average run…with a few away draws and some home wins. Again we can overtake stoke with a good run which can take us to 10th. But beyond that it will depend on how the team ahead of us close their season. Us going upto 7th ahead of west brom is like city going on top ahead of manure from now and the end of season.
    and 10th would be a good recovery from 16th obviously, but had we finished 7th or 8th, we could have argued that last season was not a fluke.
