The point here is not black and white:

1. We don’t have the money to spend like City.

2. Even if we did, why spend huge sums on top quality players simply to get a high quality, but largely unhappy squad? We lost the league by 1 point. We achieved what we have achieved through shrewd management, and a very “together” and happy squad all working for each other. It doesn’t take a £250m bench to bridge that gap.

3. Are our bench players, who are hungry to compete and happy to take their chances when they come along (Divock), THAT much worse in quality than an unhappy top player like Sane who is on the bench every week? I think not. If we had a slight upgrade on one or two of the likes of Shaq Studge Llalana and Llovren this year, who were happy to wait for their chance and step up when needed, I bet we would have won the league.

4. Rotation is a dangerous word. We should put out the team best suited for each game (or run of games depending on fixtures) with a view to maximising our ability to win every game as well as managing the players and their confidence.

We don’t need to spend £100m every time we buy someone, even if we had the finances to do so. We just need to tweak what we are doing.

As I said, it’s not black and white, and I firmly believe the Ed’s know far more than us mere mortals about all of this and I for one, think they do a first class job on here.

Rant over, let’s bring home number 6.

Amazon will command some of the pie too shortly, however I think it will become more regulated as their overall share increases and regulation will then encourage competition.
It’s sad for the smaller agencies at the moment though as they are currently competing in an unfair marketplace where the big boys have the resources to push the smaller ones to the side (sounds familiar in the context of football too doesn’t it) .

Anyway back to football but fear not, I won’t ask if any clubs are interested in Mignolet.

Great site which clearly has a huge amount of work put into it by the Eds. Sad to see the sponsorship waning. I will be donating to lend a hand.

Keep up the solid work.


{Ed001's Note - thank you TBRC, I don't think it is the sponsor's fault to be honest. Advertising revenues have been hit badly by the FB/Google monopoly and other agencies have just struggled to compete. One went into receivership so they had clearly tried to carry on as long as they possibly could. While big conglomerates like FB continue to swamp the net, everyone else will suffer.}
