top players want to win the CL, not go out on the end of a 10-2 thrashing
This was a NLD, we lost, it's bad
If we weren't in the champions league we most likely wouldn't have been able to sign Özil or Alexis.
Exactly!!! Pretending otherwise is pathetic and delusional. We were awful today as awe have been all season.
That's the best graph I have seen this season on the team's performance, says it all.
I'm so conditioned to losing that is doesn't hurt like it should now. I even started to enjoy the radio phone in shows after a loss.
My alert says you were quoting me, but you're quoting Krengon's graph. Weird.
Sp**s tried thier best this year but will come short again. They'll never have similar chance again if Manutd arsenal man city and Liverpool stop f**king around.
This shows the managers capabilities perfectly. The away form against the top 8 is just horrendous.
These days you've got to either spunk huge money up the wall every summer and hope something sticks, or assemble a squad of young talent in a short period of time.
The young talent route is our only real path, but you've got a limited amount of time. You need to be winning things or be in with a real shout straight away or else you're susceptible to the money spunkers. Monaco and Dortmund are always going to be raided no matter how well they do, but we're just big enough and play in the biggest league, so we'd avoid that, again provided we were legit threats for the big trophies.
A 24 or 25 year old who makes it on big wages here is more likely to resist mental wages from the oil clubs/RM/Barca and settle for less mental wages here if we're already a title winning side and pushing on as opposed to finishing 4th every season and winning the FA Cup. Wenger had it right in the early Emirates days, we just bottled it when our time came in 07-08, and never recovered.
The same thing will happen to Spuds if they win nothing again next season, which will likely happen. Kane and Alli will be off for £100m each and they'll be back to square one.
Squad overhaul seems to be the main knee jerk response. Buying players will solve nothing. We do not have worse players than Sp**s. The difference is they have a better manager. We are shockingly bad tactically. We are weak mentally and we are under prepared offensively. That is the fault of the manager.
I don't think we played too badly, but we were toothless in the final third. They scored, end of
it's funny fans and pundits alike are now unanimous in saying the squad is missing this and that and needs an overhaul when I quite clearly remember everyone being chuffed with the summer business and only really questioning the CF position...
I don't have more faith on players like Ramsey Walcott and Gibbs coq they are average and need to be sold even with new manager he'll can't improve them
Its ok when we do it, otherwise its cheating. Ok?
That's happened to me a few times lately too.
It was the last North London Derby at White Hart Lane so I'm sure we just wanted to be nice and give them a good send off.
They had numerous shots, way more than us, and looked far likelier to score; Cech had to make 9 saves, as that earlier-posted stat shows, while we rarely looked threatening. I'd say we played quite badly.
