He means we shouldn’t just ignore that type of club potentially being better than us. We’re not in a position of the top teams where say if City have a terrible year there not finishing below Southampton, it’ll be 6th at worst. Mentioned it before but we do need to take confidence from the fact that we were rubbish for so much of last season but still finished 8th. But we do need to learn from those mistakes.
I'm glad in some ways that he's getting to have a good look at most of the players before making his decision
I think he’s been looking since he got the ass from Watford, which is a massive plus for us.
Yes this is all true but it’s only 1 year on so maybe Jags and Baines might fall off the cliff. None of the of the older players are at that point I wouldn’t say.
Well maybe no but none of them are getting any better. Plus Walcott and Bolasie you would say are two of our most athletically capable players and they are post peak. If anything, players who rely on athletic ability (especially explosive) drop off sharper than any others.
They’re worse and a year older

Nah, you're flapping mate. In the end we finished pretty comfortably in 8th, with pretty much everyone playing well below the standard we know they're capable of. With a decent, progressive thinking manager and coaching team in place I'm confident of seeing a marked improvement from pretty much everyone.The way you go on you'd think we were one of the worst teams in the league.
We've been playing below that standard for 4 seasons now, though. Koeman's full season was the closest we came to any sort of form in that period, but even then Lukaku's goals papered over a lot of cracks.I agree there's some improvement to be gained and a different style should help lighten the mood. But at what stage do we point the finger at the ageing, bloated, stagnant squad rather than the succession of managers trying to get a tune out of them?
Fulham signing that Seri lad from Nice, massive that.
