I was trying to sound ironic with the Nev statement.
Trouble is Football isnt an exact science is it, The shite are (on paper at least) a better side than Blackpool, as are Villa to Newcastle. The Premier league is now just too close to call, Every team is out spending us, they all know that we are generally weak on the right side and do most of our attacking on the left. We all know it so im sure as hell our opposition do too, Other lesser teams have now improved with they're short comings, Ben arfa was the difference in class with us and Newcastle, much as Van der Vaart has been for Spurs, We really need to buy someone in January to completely shake up how we play, Pienaar has come in and changed the way we play down the left side, we now need a new Playmaker for the right hand side to give us more options and dare I say it "jun a say kwas" I want Donovan back in January please Mr. Kenwright...fukk the bank balance. if we dont improve or change it up a bit..we are buggered and heading for the championship sooner rather than later.
