You have to admit it's unlikely, right?

well you better hope downing and henderson improve big time and you get some actual wingers.

Downing is a winger.

Utd, Shitty, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs are all more likely to finish in the top four than Liverpool.

Leverkusen out of Berba running
German club would only re-sign striker on free transfer

...

Leverkusen are among the clubs thought to be targeting the striker, with Paris St German, Borussia Dortmund and Lazio also believed to be interested.

But club chief Holzhauer says the German club will not be moving for Berbatov, citing his price tag as a stumbling block.

He told the Rheinische Post newspaper: "We are looking to find a striker, one that works well alongside Stefan Kiessling. However, the return of Berbatov is not an option for us.

"We are still on good terms with him but he would only be an option if he was available on a free transfer."

Possibly not but Hulk isn't an out-and-out striker, obviously.

So you think Liverpool are likely to get 4th or even will?

Looks like it's Graeme Jones for the Swansea job with Garry Monk as his assistant. I really wanted Jones appointed 2 years ago before we got Rodgers in, but we're in a hugely different position now and could easily get a bigger name in. I trust our board's ability to appoint the right man however, and it sounds like they've had a lot of time to think about this as everyone at the club was certain Rodgers was going to Spurs when Harry got the England job, so they've been going through the process since March.

ooh ZING

It wasn't meant to be a zinger aimed at you. :lol:

It was supposed to be a diss on Downing and the fact that you forgot he was a winger he's so gooseberry fool.

Not sure why this is so unlikely. 'Even' last year we were there or thereabouts until the Carling Cup final (25 games played/26 for most of the rest of the league). 6 points behind 4th on that day with a game in hand.

You realise the season ends in may? Villa were clear 3rd in feb a few years back, look what happened there.

Obviously. I'm just saying that for a substantial part of the past ('abysmal', 'worst ever', etc) season, we DID stay in touch with 4th.

So next year, with an improvement in the playing and (hopefully) management staff, we should challenge for 4th. It's not such a stupid viewpoint is it?

Yeah because city, united, chelsea, arsenal and spurs will all finish above you so realistically you should be aiming for 6th/5th at a push, your team just isnt strong enough to overhaul the other 5

But that doesn't mean we can't challenge does it? Nobody thought Newcastle would do much this year, but they almost did it. The league is as competitive as ever, anything can happen.

EDIT: I don't expect us to finish 4th (as you say there are 5 better teams in the league), but I expect and hope we can be at least a lot closer next season. That was the problem with this year.
