When we're out of the league by October, it has been just about the only thing that keeps me interested. Now what? A league cup that he'll throw away again no doubt, and then just the FA Cup to look forward to in January.
Absolutely depressing as fuck.
Hope the super coach still thinks playing that shit team at Southampton in the FA Cup in the name of finishing 8th was all worth it
Hate the owner, hate the manager, hate at least half the players
We should have won the Europa by now but we haven't, we wouldn't have won this.
Ideally, we use this season as a rebuild and hopefully get top 4 next season (we won't but I'm hopeful).
People say that the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool have all had years out of Europe and used it to rebuild - the Chavs being the most famous case of finishing mid table before Conte came in and won the league.
But we all know we won't rebuild. We've had this owner for a decade and he inherited a CL club and has turned it into another of his mediocre franchises without a penny of investment. Chelsea responded by bringing in a new manager and giving him millions to spend. Liverpool dumped Hodgson, and Rogers and went out and got a top manager and backed him with funds. Under our model there's no good to come from this. All that no European football now means is that Saliba, Balogun, Martinelli and just about every other talented kid might as well leave now, because this fucking prick won't be playing them apart from in the Carabao Cup.
Think today carries far more significance than people realise. Don't think we'll ever be back in Europe again under this owner, and most certainly not under this manager. The beginning of the end
