There's a difference between being disappointed with dropping points in a game like today and looking at its context overall.

Everyone will be disappointed that we didn't win given how the game panned out.

But it's hardly a disgrace of a result.

Not at all, look at the difference between us and QPR, Sunderland, Newcastle etc..

If we had £5m more we coul have had another player like Mirallas.

Other teams wasting money is irrelevant; teams like Spurs spending money well isn't (in this case).

I agree its not a disgrace of a result. My gripe is with the continued negative tactics employed by moyes in the last 10mins of games that we are leading. This "discussion" has escalated as people seem to think Moyes is exempt from criticism for his tactical shortfalls for today just because its spurs we played.
Its not just about today its has happened numerous times this season where we've lost points in the last 5mins after negative changes



Well you'd have to think that it was his fault that they equalised then which is tenuous.

The point about money isn't related to individual games or even individual seasons.

However continuos differences over several seasons and it will manifest itself.

Bale wasn't great at first yet they were able to continue to spend while he improved.

That's where the important factor is; they are less likely to suffer if a player doesn't work out as they have more players.

We suffered when Mirallas was out as we don't have adequate replacements.

It's the cumulative effect of the money.

4 players from 4-6 seasons ago. I guess we've also had loads of shit transfers/a huge number of duds/players who haven't or won't repay their fees.

Yakubu
Bily
Van Der Meyde
Kroldrup
Heitinga (are we going to get anywhere near 6mil for him?)



It is largely irrelevant whether they've bought rubbish players or not.

It's that they've ha enough money that even when they did it didn't matter (greatly) or certainly not if they were measuring themselves against us.

Which they probably haven't as their investment levels will mean they compare themselves with Arsenal etc.
