I had not even considered it at the start of the season. I still do not really consider it now – but it has been suggested by various people, including on Sky Sports News.
Could Pompey do what spurs have been trying to do for the past 2 years? Could we displace a top 4 side, and reach the champions league?
Lots of questions, and my answer to all of them would be “no”. I don’t think that we either could, or want to. However, it is a big step in the right direction to have people suggesting that we could try to break into the “big 4”.
At the moment, our squad is simply not good enough for the champion’s league. Arsenal ripped us apart at the emirates, we have never won at Stamford Bridge, our record at old Trafford is poor, and we have never really played that well at Anfield. Would we be able to play well abroad? I doubt it. I felt the same about UEFA cup last year – we just weren’t ready for it.
This season, I would like to see us solidify ourselves as, not only a top half of the table contender – but as a UEFA cup contender. Next season, we can move on – but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.
