    Contrary to what many people thought Spurs have not collapsed and don't show drastic signs of doing so (yet).

    Assuming the top three all finish in the Cl spots and discounting Newcastle, who do you guys want to see get the last remaining spot out of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea and why?

    Im going to go for the controversial choice of Liverpool.

    My reasons being Liverpool have had a brief spell out of the top 4 and id like to see one of the teams that take it for granted miss out. Besides Kenny would only piss away the increased transfer money on overpriced, mediocre, British players.

    Missing out on the revenue will really hurt Chelsea struggling as they are with a rubbish squad, aged players and FFP coming in. Arsenal are so penny pinching it'd be great to see what happens when they loose out financially and whether they can keep hold of their one good player.

    Who would be you're choice and why?

    Arsenal , they can do well in some matches though they can't keep stable state , but i think with the leading of Wenger , they can get high rank !

    Newcastle. With Ba and Cisse scoring and coming back from the ACON pretty refreshed, I think they can do it. Their form has been pretty impressive even without those two, and they're only one point away.

    Failing that Arsenal. Cos if they manage to get fourth that will only reinforce Wenger's belief in his ability to keep the team competitive whilst spending next to nothing, and hence they will keep being there or there about without actually ever seriously challenging for the title.

    Anyone except Liverpool.
    My reason being:
    If they were to get 4th there would be hundreds of articles started about " If suarez hadn`t got himself banned we could have won the league".

    Arsenal.

    Because both Liverpool and Chelsea deserve **** all frankly. Be good to see them in the Thursday cup that they find it so hilarious to see us in.

    Arsenal also have a decent manager rather than an utter ****wit, which is precisely what Chelsea and Liverpool have.

    The reason I discounted Newcastle is because they would be everyone's first choice.

    Personally I don't think Liverpool will be title challengers next year even if they get fourth and I don't think finishing outside the CL will particularity hurt them that much either. Its a tricky decision and one ive changed my mind about a lot but I think Arsenal and Wenger have taken top 4 for granted and used as it as an excuse not to spend while Chelsea could do with reminding where they would be without Romans money.

    Liverpool for all their faults know what its like to have no CL football and their trying hard to get back in.

    Steady on there swolen arsehole, it is ye that make all the fun over the thursday cup and now you sadly try to turn it around, which is pathetic considering Evra's comments and that you lot backed hios comments about it.

    Fickle plastomerchant you are<ok>

    Go have another angry **** why dont you


    Newcaslte lok good and if they can continue in that vein they may well get it. If they do, they deserve it because they had enough points and not the imaginary reasons some say why liverpool arsenal or chelsea dont deserve it, whomever gets the points to make it deserves it, some real crap on this board

    This.
    In regards to Arsenal, I may be castrated for this, but I've developed a bit of a soft spot for them. It's more than likely out of pity than anything else. I just feel sorry for their current state of affairs, and Wenger seems to be turning ever more into a pathetic old man that probably needs a little reassurance these days.

    All the time they've had roman's money and have not won the league, surely that says money alone cant win it, the coach has to be good too and the right players bought, again a leaky bum posts on the united board

    Newcastle. It would cap off a few seasons of hard work and progress for them.

    Man United aside, it would represent a real shake-up of the old 'top four' if Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are not in it.

    Newcastle. For a club to go from imploding and crashing out of the Premier League to challenging for the CL without an injection of oligarch cash in the space of four seasons is remarkable.

    There's also the thought of the lack of CL money causing Chelsea to implode on a massive scale, Wenger would be seen rocking gently backwards and forwards whilst sat in the dugout as as he insists they did qualify for the CL after all, and Dalglish will probably get Liverpool banned from all European competitions for several years when he spouts off the latest insane conspiracy theory.

    This, and the club has also shown itself to be willing to back its manager and stick with its history even if it doesn't result in huge success. When you look at the number of clubs since Wenger joined Arsenal that have tried to compete by either sacking the manager every other season, desperately looking for any outside investment they can find; or just over extending themselves and having debt problems it does show just how well Arsenal have done to stay up the top in the way they have.

    I would like the Magpies to get 4th and they are doing well at the moment. Selling a donkey to the scouse muppet manager for £35 million and then getting a 100 times better replacement for free.

    Amazing to think that we can have 3 of the previous big four out of the champions league. What an incredible season!
