It seems every year that there is a team "poised to break into the Top 4"

Everton, Spurs, Villa and most recently Citteh.

My question to you folks is:

Out of every team in the Premiership, Who would you most like to see break into that number 4 spot?

Who'd you like to see lose it?

Btw, if anyone responds to the first question with Leeds, and/or the second question with anyone other than Liverpool, I'll come find you! :D

Ye...Liverpool to get knocked out of it! :p....


Anyways...

I'd like to see Everton break through TBH. I have great respect for Moyes. He's
been one of the best managers in the prem and he's taken that club to where
they are now. They've got some of the best players too, Johnson, Arteta, Cahill,
Neville, Stubbs, and Saha now if he stays fit.

I hate having to play them because thay always make it a very tough match with us.


Everton for me....Citteh....NO CHANCE!!!! :p ;)

Id love to see Pool drop out of the top 4 and who better to replace them
than their Merseyside rivals Everton haha.
tbh I dont think Everton will get back up there for a while.
Villa and Spurs have a better chance.

I actually dont mind teams like Everton, Villa and Spurs and always hope they
do well in the Uefa cups and so on.

Anyway, my answer is to have Sunderland in for Liverpool.
I have a soft spot for Sunderland cos of Keano, Quinn, the Irish connection
and some ex United players etc.

Hull :p

no really i would like to see Villa or Westham breaking into the top 4
two of the rarely teams which have more British than foreigners in their squad
also they have too many players to watch just like Ashly Young who is the best english player imo, Agbonlahor the epl fastest player, Roe Cooker a great holding midfielder , Pizza lover Dean Ashton englands best finisher imho , and Mark Noble who deserves to play for england

West Ham is up there with me too. Great fans, and evidently Dean Ashton is a fan of me. Plus Green Street Hooligans was a fantastic movie.

yeah really great fans and one of the best atmospheres in the world in Upton park :)
and that movie is great

If Westham get Bilic as their manager they can be something
they are a young side and with a young understanding manager they can reach a good place this season

If Mark Hughes had stayed at Rovers I would like to see him at top 4. Now I dont think its even possible with Incy at Rovers and Sparky in baby blue.
Since I have to give a name I say....ehm.....hm...uh....Ebbsfleet

A former Leicester player told about Martin O'Neill that he's an over rated manager.
His relation to the players are the old school where he gives no feedback just critics and give no reason for dropping a player. So the players were left out in the dark what in their performence they have to learn or improve.

Also, the organisation around the club at that time were poor. Not worthy a team in the Premier League in mid 90's.

I heard this when Mr O'Neill were one of the favourites to take over after Fergie when he first were going to retire.

Maybe the view on Martin O'Neill has to do with the relation to him as a manager.:D

I remember hearing about how they were served toast with white beans on for lunch before a match and how he started to bring his own lunch box on away games. Maybe british players were more used to this then foregin players but in 95-96 they were used to eat proper food as a part of getting yourself ready to play.

How the pre game speech were just a lot of bull and never mentioned the tactical play. Half time talk were as absent as pre game talking.

The whole Barry summer transfer made me doubt him again.

But I agree about Villa having an interesting team.

In some clubs reaching the 9th spot is enough to become a legend. In others you get sacked if you lose the league cup final, end up 2nd in league and lose in the Champions League final after being let down by your captain.:D

I would love to see the Geordies break in. They fully deserve some kind of good news and progress. The scousers have to drop out of course.

Villa for the simple reason they have british players which is the way the Prem should be, not a full 11 British players but you should have some. Definitely to knock out Pool although I'd love to see Arsenal knocked out of it too, by Spurs :p that would be good, I think Spurs have a really good side, good going forward. Ramos is a really good manager, they are a young side and i actually think they have a really good chance of breaking it, if the team gels. They have Modric, dos Santos, Pavlychenko, Bent, Bentley etc. goals aren't going to hard to come by.
