SO HAS THE SQUAD REGRESSED OR NOT. ONE MINUTE WE SHOULD UPGRADE ON ALL OF THEM THE NEXT IT'S A SACKABLE OFFENCE TO NOT WIN SERIOUS TROPHIES WITH IT.

Annoying isn't it
The squad has regressed.
It is not top 4
It would not reach a CL final

With Jose making some better decisions and them playing better it could however win the Carabou (already beaten City) and with some good draws and sacrifice in the PL, maybe the EL.

It has still regressed from where it was three years ago though, unless you think Rodon (unused) is better than Jan, and Bergwijn is producing more than Eriksen and Doherty is better than KWP and Tripps etc etc

Plus all of Sissoko, Winks, Davies, Dele, Sanchez, Toby are much worse.

So to be clear as you don’t understand
They were capable THEN of winning a CL and finishing 4th. We didn’t lose the final due to investment or lack of

NOW they are capable of winning a Carabou, maybe an EL and finishing 8th

Regression

Some of you think they have become better. That’s genuinely hilarious

No you have me mistaken.
I wasn’t the one calling our top 4 CL finalists “Champo Shit”

This squad isn’t that squad, even if some of the names are the same, they are a fraction of what they were a few years ago, Kane included

I’m glad you think Winks, Dier and Davies could play for Liverpool and Chelsea now though
Poch masterfully tailored training to make sure they all declined rapidly as he left.
What an evil bastard!

Now we need to spend hundreds of millions to fix the damage. Don't we Sam?

All shit now apparently and the new players like PEH, Ndombele, Regulion all duds that can’t do anything.

We need to spend £6bn in the next window giving giant contract to the likes of Arron Ramsey and Sergio Ramos and hopefully then we can come 6th and win the FA cup before sacking Jose and having to sell the whole squad to pay off the debts.

No he just couldn’t install a winning mentality, and Eriksen gave up, Toby and Jan had doubts, Rose never got over Walker going to a bigger team, Dele never reached the heights he once did, Sanchez suffered a catastrophic decline after being dropped while peak, we insisted on a formation the players couldn’t adapt to and then the day before the final, Poch declared he’d leave if we won.

It was a chain of events and frayed relationships, Trippiers comments a testament to it, and I guess if the manager doesn’t leave the house for ten days due to a defeat, there’s not much hope for the team to get themselves over the line.

I thought you were Spurs, you should know all this

Nope you’re not listening, either.
I would play most of the academy over this team next week. However Hojberg and Ndombele would definitely be in my team.

I don’t rate Reguilon, just like you’d rate Davies.....oh! Wait! That’s right Davies is top 4 now isn’t he

:mourfacepalm:

Yeh Davies is really average almost as average as Virgil Van Dijk.

Ahhhh as sure as Messi or Hitler will come up to prove a non point, here comes VVD

You think we have a top 4 squad right here, right now, as we stand.

Let that sink in before you try taking the piss out of anyone else.
We have 3 players who could start for the teams currently in the top 4, and two of them would need to find form first.

No we don’t, we have a poorly coach team underperforming with a few weaknesses at CB.

When Jose left Chelsea they where 10th, following season Conte got them 1st with pretty much the same squad. We don’t have much in the way of attacking patterns, we looks clueless.

Jose bought a load of players in the summer, he was backed by Levy, he’s been shit.

So as you keep running like everyone else when I ask, list all the top 4 players in our squad.

Because in another argument the very same people are there telling me that Kane has been poor because he is surrounded by shit.

Cake and eat it springs to mind.

So is Kane surrounded by top 4 quality now?
Away you go, name them all

who could be top 4 or used by top 4 teams. well Kane, Son, Ndombele, Lloris, Lo Celso, Regulion, Bale, PEH for starters would easily stand a chance of breaking into most teams, City would be the least but all the rest would take them.

Lo Celso has had injuries issues this season so I accept on him missing.

So you’ve named 7 players out of 26 that would “easily stand a chance” of getting into a top 4 side (minus City) and claim we have a top 4 squad.

One of those players is Lloris, that’s really desperate stuff.

I am talking about the first 11. We can look at the Chelsea and United squads and see shit players.

Depends doesn’t it, maybe they’re not shit players and the table is a reflection of that

Maybe we just aren’t as good as we think we are. It’s not just coincidence or hate when other teams fans don’t look at Son and automatically say he’s better than Firminho or Kane is better than Rashford.

Maybe it’s just true

start of the season other teams where scared when they knew we had a front three of Bale, Kane and Son, perhaps on paper the strongest in the league yet here we are.

Jose has failed, most people on this forum after the window would have agreed we had around the 3-5th strongest team overall yet we are 9th. It’s a joke.

Our players have been inconsistent for five years. Teams were scared, now they don’t even bother marking Kane.
Its why we never win anything. Inconsistent, soft, no leadership and lack a winner’s mentality.

Probably what Jose was referring to about problems he can’t fix, he’s a coach not a shrink. He bought in Hojberg, a massive plus, but his failure has been to bottle stripping the silent twins of their captaincy and giving it to the one fighter in the middle of the pitch

5 years, we came in the top 4 four times, we are not shit. We have a manager with an attack heavy squad who doesn’t know how to coach attacking football. We have a Ramos>Redknapp situation.
