Think we'd be a lot better prepared for it.
I don't really want is starting the season in July, in a World Cup year, with a squad that needs a massive overhaul.
It'll be a mess. I want Allardyce to have the best preparation possible going into the new season.
I love being in Europe, but it can become a hindrance at times.
You could send a squad of our best young'uns and backup players to rinse the qualifying rounds, Limassol style, with minimal disruption.
Still can't believe quite how badly Koeman dealt with it. Getting outplayed by fucking Ruzumberok.
Reckon if you gave Allardyce the choice, he'd want to be in it every time, and would back himself and his staff to deal with it quite comfortably.
