Our underlying statistics from what I've seen are demonstrably worse than last season. We're taking less shots, conceding more shots, I'm pretty sure we over performed our xG by some distance this season which is extremely worrying as this metric has a history of bearing out eventually. The biggest concern for me is still off the pitch. That bald fraud Gazidis has seemingly been replaced by a two headed version of himself (Raul and Vinai), the way our chief scout left and not being able to replace him, the farce over Monchi, how they thought he was ours and all of the sudden he isn't. This club is still run by amateurs and until that gets fixed, I won't have any hope as our owners clearly don't give a ****. The board of directors + upper management need to be replaced by those that know what the **** they are doing and this club needs to get back to aggressively trying to be the best that it can be with the vast resources it has at its disposal. We'll get the same laundry list of excuses though, "FFP, STCC, no CL" etc etc while we have one of the highest cash balances in world football, have a wage bill of £230m where one player alone earns £350k p/w while at the same time clubs such as Everton, Leicester, Wolves will likely spend more money than us.
