fulham has my bet
Our last two games are not going to be easy, but what I will say is this... If Tottenham beat us next week our European dream is over.
certainly not spurs as they have to play liverpool and city. City must beat Spurs and bolton and hope west ham draw at least 1 and fulham lose at least one. Due to fulham's poor away form i wouldn't put it past them to slip up vs newcastle, but even if they draw, a win vs everton (who have a very good away record) would do it. West playing everton and boro, not easy and a draw is possible, but they'd be my bet to win both, fulham drops points and west ham to beat fulham just...
Im a spurs fan but fulham deserve it the most.
spurfect one
Does anyone want it? Why we (Wigan) eased off is beyond me, the top brass reckon it would ruin us qualifying but for me a club without ambition is going nowhere (obviously), I chose Fulham to grab the Europa spot
Beat Spurs or it's all over for the season. The way Fulham are playing you couldn't knock them if they qualify. We had our chance against the Cottagers but fluffed it at home on April 12. Not one of Hughes's tactical highs, that game.
Fulham for me, they always beat us at the cottage, we haven't won there since '66, and can't see any of the other sides winning both their games.
fulham prob deserve it but ironically it would probably ruin their season next year as they dont have the size/strength of squad to handle the extra games whereas spurs and city have large squads with many decent fringe players desperate for the opportunity.
sorry lads - Fulham will just sneak it!
The next games are the big one, think Spurs with a strong home record will beat Man City who are not the best away, putting Man City out of it. If Fulham can pick up a point will be enough for them as they will feel confident being at home for the last game. West Ham will do well to pick up a point, Spurs to get anything at Liverpool?
53 - FULHAM 52 - West Ham 51 - Tottenham 50 - Man City We will beat City, but lose at Liverpool, whether or not the title is already over. West Ham will beat Boro, draw at Everton. Having lost at Spurs, City will beat Bolton. Fulham will lose at Newcastle but beat Everton.
Fulham to lose both their games. They are overrated. Spurs to beat City and possibly get a point at Anfield as Liverpool will have nothing to play for by then. West Ham. Ahahahahahahaahah City. Lose to Spurs and beat Bolton
Its a tough call ( Spurs fan here). Have to agree that Fulham have done brilliantly this season. Think we will beat City, but lose at Liverpool - so we probably wont get it. I dontunderstand all this " do we really want to qualify" nonsense. I understand its not the Champs league but its European football and if you dont want to be involved in that, them what are all these clubs outside the top 4 playing for?? Surely not just survival - thats a bit grim. I want Spurs to be in Europe every season because I feel we should be there with the money we throw around and the squad we have ( if we dont do it this yr, then we obviously dont deserve it ).
I reckon it's going to go the wire for at least two of these teams the way it did for us under Psycho Pearce a few seasons back. Fatty Fowler stepped up to take a deciding UEFA penalty against Middlesbrough and missed. Badly.

I would like to think that Spurs will beat city next week, 1-0 again to beat the premier league and club record for goals conceded at home. The league title will be done and dusted come the last game so i hope liverpool wont be up for it and spurs win there. That would mean Fulham needing 4 points from newcastle and everton, tough ask. Seriously though Fulham deserve, which will be thanks to Gomes' clangers at the cottage.
Fulham are in the driving seat and are the form team at the moment. Even if we win our last two games i can still see Fulham getting a point against Newcastle and beating Everton (cup final the week after) and that would be good enough. Have to wait till next season guys.
FULHAM have this in the bag.....I hope! The more games you play, the less likely it'll be for you to clinch that Carling Cup! That's if you manage to avoid Forest!
Fulham deserve it. They have been consistant and I cant see city beating spurs next week, away from home on spurs last home game. They will be looking to go out with a bang. Hughes needs 7th place if he has any realistic hopes of keeping his job.
enzo city
Next weekend is going to a tense affair, no dount about it. Fulham will beat the barcodes and draw against Everton. WHU will lose to Everton and beat Boro. Spuds will draw with City and lose against Liverpool, while City will pick up all three points against Bolton, which means Fulham will finish on 54 points and 7th. WHU and City on 51 while Tottenham finish the season on 49 points.
Too close to call ...But I think 6 points for us is not beyond belief .....
At the moment we (Fulham) are in the driving seat but i have a feeling we will slip up and West Ham'll pip us to it. Bloody hope not though, would like to get something out of what has been a spectacular season for us. And Fulham Overrated!? get real, wev started every season of the last 4 or 5 with pundits condemning us to the championship
I feel that it would be wrong for either Man City or Spurs to get itto europe. Fair enough they have both come back strongly in the 2nd hal of the season but the jobs that both Gianfranco Zola and Roy Hodgeson have done has been nothing short of remarkable. Candidtaes for manager of the season!!!!!!!!!!
