    idiom - good way or bad way

    We're going to win in a good way or in a bad one (way).

    Hi there,
    I wonder what's the idiom that conveys the underlined idea, please.

    Not a teacher.

    We're going to win, no matter what the cost.
    We're going to win, no matter what it takes.
    We're going to win, even if we have to hit below the belt.

    Some possible alternate ways of writing the sentence. I hope that's somewhere along the lines of what you were looking for.

    How about "at all cost" or "at any cost"?

    Hi gctgf,

    “in one way or another”, “no matter how”, “by fair means or foul”

    One idiom is, 'by hook or by crook'. I also like, ' by fair means or foul', as noted by vil.

    Another expression is 'whatever it takes'.
