The drama queens need to take some time out for self reflection. Emotional fragility gets you nowhere.

Phew. Well done. Holding on to the narrow wins against Villa and Bournemouth were crucial.

We sealed the deal in style though. Even if it was against a relegation candidate.

Just in case anyone missed it. I don't like Mount.

So relieved we got it done! And with a game to spare.
Finally we can relax.

It’s done! Fantastic job by ETH and the layers to get over the line today. Would be great to take third place, too. I don’t think many of us expected this end to the league season after losing the first two league games if we’re being honest, so fingers crossed we have a good summer now!

It's finally done and well done to team as it few bad results in late April/early May made it a bit complicated but ultimately we won the games that we were expected to win.

We still control our own fate. The goal difference column is telling though. Has me feeling like the only way we qualify top 4 is if Newcastle stop overachieving themselves because I would back Liverpool to finish ahead of us.
It only dawned on me what little room for error Liverpool had after they drew with Villa. I let my gut down giving it incomplete information.

Oh, but if we got some point deducted, Liverpool could still beat us to 3rd/4th..
It's not over :wenger:

Bare minimum indeed. They were in the Europa many years not too far back.

Was confident we'd do it even after the two recent away defeats- our home form has just been that good all season.

I can relax on Sunday now! Finally a gameday where we can chill out for a change.

Great achievement for Ten Hag considering the mess he inherited at the start of the season, the terrible start, dealing with the Ronaldo situation, not having top quality centre forwards and losing his best defender for the season run-in, all the while juggling that f**king curse of a competition, the Europa League.

This was an incredibly important season for CL qualification, we need to make the absolute most of it and recruit well in the summer!

Finding the articles that says some people expects Brighton to finish above us next season.
Been weeks now but he isn’t a liar so I live in hope
Rambling nonsense as usual. What on earth are you talking about now?

So glad to have secured Champions League football next season. We're going to be dining at Europe's top table, and it feels great knowing that.

Any brilliant talent that has been on our radar that didn't want to play in the Europa League, can now give the green light to their agent of their willingness to sign for us.


and finally...

Finishing above the team that knocked seven past us in their 'Cup Final' that didn't derail us, and them ultimately finishing outside of the Top 4, makes it all that much sweeter :devil:

I'm more happy about avoiding Europa than about playing CL. Also happy it didn't go all the way to last day as that would be torture.
