Depends on how we exit those cup compititions. If we come second in the league but are knocking on the door, I'll be happy. But if we drop out of the League or FA cup like this past season I'll be a little upset. May not mean I'll be calling for Rafa's head, but this past season domestic cups were an embarresment. Sure bring out the kids and rest some big names, but name a squad that can win.
I think we have to go for Champions league no matter what. This is our compitition, and no other British team can touch us. We have to name a squad that can win every game we play in Europe. The fans deserve as many European nights as possible.
There is a difference between being beaten and just losing. If I see improvement all around in how the squad plays, I'll keep my head up and ask Rafa to keep us going.
I will disagree with you on just one point - 'we should go for the Champions League no matter what'. By no matter what, do you mean even if we are in the title hunt in March?
I'm not suggesting we shouldn't try our bloody hardest to win everything, but something has to take priority, and IMO it shouldn't be the CL - don't care how good our track record is in the tournament.
If Rafa starts resting key players in a prem game because of a Champions League fixture mid-week, he'll have lost me I'm afraid.
Title challenge or bust this year - that's my equation for Rafa.
