I think our problem is we’ve no highs or lows. We could do another 20 or 30 years and never be in a relegation battle or the top 4. It’s all a bit dull. The odd season we do look on the verge of achieving something (the 4th under moyes and the 5th under Martinez) we quickly throw it all away
It doesn't feel dull to me. It feels torturous. Always just on the cusp of something genuinely good, but then we conspire to mess it up, or something deeply cruel happens to us. I do genuinely think we've become quite a tragic club (the literary meaning of tragic, not the 'Everton are magic, Liverpool are tragic' sense). Doomed to suffer.
