Apparently ETH wants Europa league pretty badly and so do the club, as it's a direct entrance into UCL and it's a pot they could realistically win. Get's ETH loads of games to beast the squad into shape (and he wants them back in training by June 27) and drill them exactly how he wants them to play. The younguns should be ok with that, not sure about older pizza eaters like Shaw tho.
I think even if we lose, if Brighton beat West Ham we still get the Europa spot. If not we drop down to that BS conference league where there is no upside.
