You thought we were gonna be in Europa this coming season.
Absolutely none of that quote is true. Chelsea going to shit afforded us one spot. So still top 4.We were 6th when I wrote that. Let's not kid ourselves. Chelsea going to shit helped us massivly.
And the full quote was: "I was wrong about Lamela. I didn't think he was good enough for Spurs because I don't think he's good enough for a top 4 team. I'm still right about this, but we're not a top 4 club anymore (absolutely no chance this season) so by default he has become good enough for us."
This remains absolutely true. Man City have raised the bar. Utd and Liverpool are raising it. If we don't raise it ourselves we face a season of competing with Chelsea or even Woolwich for fourth.
We need upgrades in areas or we risk sleepwalking back into the Europa. This is a very critical Summer.
Yep. Can’t remember one person suggesting he would come in and improve us. Lots of other names at similar price tag level but not this chap. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t recall him being touted. Anyway, if he was any good, we’d have let Liverpool scout him, then sign him from under their salty whiskers.Correct me if Im wrong but weren't some saying a mere 6 weeks ago that the reason Liverpool will finish above us and win the CL is because they spend more and pay higher wages.
Yet, once again, we finished above them....now, they have signed Fabinho, that nobody had in their wishlist, and that means we're fucked.
Fabinho was great last season, but looked totally average in the handful of Monaco matches I caught this season. Keita and Fekir are great business though.Fabinho is not that great, certainly not better than Dier or Wanyama. Keita is a fucking good player though but we have known he is going to Liverpoolfor some time.
I just hope he keeps up his penchant for earning red cards. Seemingly his only real weak spot
