New Everton is a bit of a stretch but I get the point. We aren’t going forward but our status as a club means this is pretty much our rock bottom. Football is tragic, horrible players & no spark in the stands. It won’t get worse though!Top 6 (8 at a stretch) is the most we can aspire to for the next couple of decades.
This match has signalled the end of our status as a "Big Club". We're the new Everton.
Mate. Football has changed. It's an industry not a sport. In the 80s we were not very good but we were still there in the first division. If you think that kind of mediocrity is going to keep us in the premier league with the amounts invested nowadays, you're in for a very, very rude awakening.
They’re not sh*t, Valencia are a quality outfit, lots of very good players. We bottled it tonight but that doesn’t diminish our run in.
From your lips.... of course we'll be here. I'll be here if we drop five divisions. But if we're going to compete at the top level at some point these dead weights have to go.We’re in a bad way because we’ve been diabolical in the transfer market. For my money we’ve improved in that sense, we choked in both the league and EL yes but we’re at a similar level to the two teams above us.
If the club can keep adding good players while managing to generate sales we can improve. We’re not doomed to slide down the table into nothing.
On Kroenke yes he’s a sh*t, but if his bottom line is getting hurt he’ll sell up. This club was here for a hundred and twenty years before him and it’ll be here a hundred and twenty years after.
