Despite Arsenal appearing to want to make it as difficult as possible to get there, something inside me makes it hard for me to believe we won't make it. And that something inside me is certainly not wind.
Perhaps its the season when we needed a Lasagna to make it happen gives me belief. We seemed dead and buried then but the football Gods smiled on us that day at Highbury.
That said there is a tiny voice, maybe a reality check, that keeps whispering in my ear that we won't finish in the top four. The first time under Arsene Wenger.
Now I have told this little voice to jog on but it won't go away. It keeps lurking there like someone watching you play on the fruit machine, waiting for you to spend your money, and then pouncing to win the jackpot.
That said, maybe the voice has a point. Maybe this is the season that we don't make the top four and, unless we win the Champions League, we won't be playing with the cream of Europe next year.
Can you take that? Can you take not hearing the chorus of the Champions League song booming round the Emirates next season?
Like Syrup of ipecac not having Champions League football at Arsenal would be hard to stomach. The thought of it makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
As much I hate to say it, I have to concede, we might not make it. The reality is that its a real possibility we won't be there at the moment.
I think that Arsenal and, at times, Gooners have come to take the Champions League for granted. Season after season we have been involved with Europe's elite competition.
You never know what you've got until its gone is a very true saying. Perhaps it may ring true with figures at the club and will get things moving.
People say Robin van Persie will leave if Arsenal aren't involved. I don't think that is the case. If Arsenal show a summer of intent, then I believe he will sign a new contract.
Arsenal will have to show intent this summer regardless of whether we make the Champions League or not.
People are beginning to question the ambitions of the club and for a long time many Gooners have become unhappy at what direction the club wants to take.
Not being in the Champions League will not appease the money men at Arsenal but perhaps they need a kick up the backside for them to actually do something.
These days it becoming harder than one of Pele's erections after taking Viagra to compete unless you are spending money.
Despite what many say, Arsene Wenger has performed miracles with the funds available to him. To continuously qualify for the Champions League year after year is amazing. But not enough to some and I understand that.
Arsenal are a big club and sometimes a reality check is needed to remind them of that fact. The board have come to rely on Wenger to spend very little but achieve big things.
The problem is the boards idea of big things and many Gooners are totally different. Just competing for 4th place isn't enough for the fans of the club.
If it happens, finishing outside of the top four might seem like the end of the world at first. But maybe it could have a positive effect in a weird way.
Of course we would get slaughtered for not making it but maybe, just maybe the board and even perhaps Wenger, will wake up and start to act like a big club with ambition again.
