Would you rather we were...
...in Europe but struggling in the Prem like Stoke and Fulham and perhaps just missing the drop or keep finishing safe in mid-table (14th-10th) without any European games?
Myself, I wouldn't mind a run out in Europe. To me we should already be there with the money spent on the team (even though we've been selling to buy, overall it's still a lot of money spent on new players the past couple of seasons) and, in Premiership terms at least, a long-standing manager who's had time to get it right. Two and a half years ago Europe is honestly where I thought we'd be right now.
I know some people would settle for 14th-10th atm with our bad start, but you get the drift of the question.
Doing nothing is very hard to do...you never know when you're finished.
