    Wolves. They seem to have an objective and have picked up some good results. The first season PL nerves will be gone and they can kick on. Their manager is also exciting and clear minded. Tbh, all the clubs apart from AS will probably overtake us with money,ambition and luck.

    Everton and Newcastle in 2-3 years. Wolves maybe earlier.

    Thing is while Everton, Wolves and maybe Newcastle have rich owners they can hardly just go to town and start splashing out.

    Financial fair play etc. Obviously there's smart ways of adding money to match day revenue and things but if this new guy comes in at Newcastle he can't just start handing Benitez 200m this summer.

    Well from what I understand he can't from the whole financial fair play point of view.

    How Everton managed to spend so much was getting 80m for Lukaku or thereabouts meaning the likes of Keane and Richarlson were free.

    John Stones 50m sale covered Siggurdson.

    So they have generated a lot of that money invested themselves. Their other buys like Mina and Digne were 20-30m nothing out of the ordinary.

    We do need investment but I think it's more of the fact the investment in the past has been poor.

    I'm not entirely happy with last summer's buys but I do feel I have seen more from them albiet not much than a lot of others.

    I’m hoping Newcastle. Great club, great fans.

    Newcastle.

    Everton are our Northern equivalent, they won't do anything.

    We can only pick 1? Everton will soon be competing with us at the very least. Wolves maybe, probably a bit off tho. Newcastle in a couple of seasons most likely. Leicester under Rodgers could get very interesting. One thing is for sure competing for top 4 is absolutely out of the question next season.

    It's possible therefore it's necessary, as Harold Pinter might have said.

    But joking apart it's always good to know where the next danger is coming from and when we are at a low moment, as we are after Wednesday night, it's good to remember that things can get much worse. And probably will. Pessimistic? Realistic, more like.

    Not really. Arsenal and bad weather are my only sources of misery atm. Nothing I can do about the weather....

    If we really talking about Everton and Newcastle to overtake us then we may just close the club.

    Funnily enough until a few years ago I looked forward to weekends to cheer myself up watching the Arsenal.

    Me too. Would cheerfully plan my weekend around The Arsenal. All the jobs that I've been putting off are getting done now. I'm making great progress :)

    If we get much worse I might actually finish one of my screenplays.

    Troll thread.

    Liverpool and Spuds have given us a template on how to build a team that can challenge without oil money. We should follow.

    After the team has let everyone down on Wednesday, we all need to find something to self-flagellate on Sunday.
