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.



Ah I get it

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.

True, but I doubt he's seen feck all of klaasen and sandro etc. I'm hoping all the boys are making his choices more difficult

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.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Yeah they’re close to it so it needs sorting - just don’t think it’s panic stations this summer.

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?

After this one. If they're crap under Marco then fair enough

We haven't had an attack minded manager since RM so let's see how they do in a new system with a guy who actually has decent coaching and man management skills.

We're unlikely to break into the top 6 this season anyway so what's the point in bringing in anyone else in unless they're a step up from what we have and we're not really in a position to attract those players currently. Buying more players to finish 7th doesn't make any sense when the current ones can probably do that anyway

We need to trust Silva and Brands. Silva in particular will have had ample time to look at the squad, we need to build and they'll know that.

I personally aren't worried in the slightest, I'm just excited to see how it all pans out on the pitch come August
Ahh.....Boucheenie i presume

I think Walcott will adapt his game and still prove decent for another 2-3 seasons. He looks to have good game intelligence from his years at Arsenal so he'll always be a goal threat and get you double figures a season in a team which tries to create chances.

Bolasie has never delivered decent goals and assist stats throughout his entire career even at his peak, so if his game drops off a cliff it won't be as noticeable as he never did anything of any real note anyway.

Sigurdsson replaced Barkley and is more effective than he ever was.
