Yeah but you’re a massive downer who finds a negative in pretty much everything?
People have been saying this about spurs for 3 years but their manager is a bottler too.
The neighbours have done the same business all the top clubs do. It’s what you do with it that counts and so far they’ve done fuck all and any natural winners they have tend to fuck off fairly rapidly.
I'm just looking at it from a football perspective, not being a downer or whatever.
They've got a much better keeper, which was a massive weakness. They've upgraded massively in the midfield. Keita and Fabinho are big upgrades on Wijnaldum and Can, imo. And Shaqiri is a big upgrade on their backup for the front three. And talk is that Fekir will ending up joining them, which is another great option.
They're the only team to dominate Man City H2H last season. Yes, they finished well behind in the end, but they did go all out for the CL.
I just think they were very good last season, and they have improved important areas in the squad, so it's completely normal to think they will be closer to City, and probably above all of the others.
