I have to respectfully disagree. We're not that good of a team. We're unbalanced on the field(especially before January buys). We're unbalanced in our squad re: age with very few peaking players combined with old and to young players. And we have a few mercenary type players on our team who really don't give a fuck.
We're at best a 7th place team that is actually quite far off the top 6.
I donít see why how far we are off 6th is relevant.
We should be finishing 7th with this squad and any competent manager would be thinking that way.
Allardyce is just doing what he does best which is lowering expectations so he looks like a saviour. Itís transparent, itís neanderthal and itís why he was never the right appointment for us.
