Well I would take european qualification any way it comes be it cup finals or fair play! and I agree we can do the business against quality opposition on "our day" But...the real test is a top 6 or 7 finish in the league , this shows how consistant we are over the course of a season and is imo. a real test of a good team, we need to get into the habit of beating the likes of Hull, Fulham, WestBrom instead of saving our best for the top sides.
