    A soft penalty doesn’t mean its not a penalty. It means it is a penalty. Soft or hard doesn’t matter one jot apart from to whinging gooners.

    That is my understanding, I don't recall if a decision was confirmed on whether it was 5th place vs. the controversial high coefficient plans but it's either 23/24 or 24/25 when it comes in.

    Its 5th place but only becomes active if your fellow teams from your country have performed well in europe that season.

    If the rules were applied this season then england and holland would get an extra place.

    Did anyone else see Neville and Carragher discussing the Arse vs Toon result. Neville had a quote, "I didn't think they'd come out of the game on Thursday at Tottenham, that was really damaging. They were brutalized by that Tottenham fan base of 60 minutes."

    Is it wrong that this cheers me up so much?

    I couldn’t disagree more with the first sentence, both were clear pens.

    I don’t think we were that likely to score from either, so in that sense they were a bonus, but whether a team is likely to score is t a determinant of whether something is a penalty

    I think (/hope!) that West Ham will drop down a level next season. Rice won't be there any more and they need to replace Antonio who seems to have lost his early season form entirely.

    Hmmn, I've seen so many "clear pens" not given to us at the Lane, Kane rugby tackled etc etc, by contrast these were anything but clear to me, anyway it's about time we got the rub of the green.

    We helped create our own luck, getting in the box, creating half chances and dangerous situations.

    It's never over until it's over, stranger things have happened and all that. But we couldn't heve asked for a better starting point going into the last round weeks or months ago.

    I trust the players and manager to get the job done, there is a small chance we don't, but that's life.

    Said it was the best atmosphere he'd experienced in the prem i believe.

    The Burnley one was correct but does feel a bit gross. I’d be fuming if that went against us.

    The Arsenal one was absolutely a penalty but I don’t think it was ‘clear’, if that makes sense. I think it was a fantastic spot by the ref, and had he missed it VAR probably wouldn’t have intervened.

    I remember during the Arsenal game, Neville repeatedly praised the crowd and atmosphere. Said it was definitely the best he'd seen this season.

    We need to develop that sort of reputation. Neville also said "you'd never describe Tottenham as a hostile atmosphere but it was against Arsenal".

    Now, obviously there are a lot of special factors that made the Woolwich game special that can't be replicated for other games. But Levy has given us a stadium that keeps the noise in, we just have to make it and that noise shouldn't be moaning at our players. A lot of games this season, the atmosphere has been crap for various reasons. To be fair, I thought the crowd did well and were very supportive for the Burnley game given that it was a 12pm kick off and a frustrating game.

    Only needing a draw makes it massively less dangerous than needing a win there

    True, lets hope the Conte effect works on the team and we do not bottle it again like we have in important games in the past.

    Honestly I am not nervous at all.
    Pragmatically, of course I have to acknowledge and fear that slight possibility, but I really don't countenance it as anything other than a technical option. It's quite strange.
