Gamblore on the Top Four

by   |   11/02/2016   Comments  [Jump to last]

Only Simpsons fans will appreciate the title of this, my first article on ToffeeWeb.

Remember that easy run of games from around October up to the Spurs game at the turn of the year? Well we're in the middle of the reverse of those fixtures and this time we're winning.

If we beat West Bromwich Albion on Saturday then we will be either nine or ten points off fourth place.

Now I'm as pessimistic as your average ToffeeWebber but with an upcoming fixture list of Aston Villa (A), West Ham Utd (H), and Sunderland (A), dare we dream of finally sneaking into the top four this season?

Arsenal at home is the next game on the list (leaving out the pending derby game for the minute). Seems like déjà vu from last season where us beating them set up a race for 4th place in the Premier League.

Bear in mind that, by the time we play them, they'll have just encountered Leicester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the league – not to mention their probable annual exit at the last 16 stage of the Champions League.

This article sounds like the type of one that I throw my eyes up at but, at 50/1 to finish in the top four, I'm going to allow the aforementioned gambling monster to enslave me and chance at least a Euro on it happening.
