I think it is a rather recent development. It was all happy days when they've won the league. But things started to go south and Mou started to get more trigger happy with the key player subs and accusations. He said after a game that he would have liked to use 6 subs at halftime, because everyone played so badly. After that game Fab was left out. Only natural reaction for that little ***** is to start crying. A bit more and we find out that his boyhood club was City/PSG all along.

I think this is a huge reason he couldn't make it at Barca. He just couldn't handle not taking part and quite possibly voiced his concern. What he should have done is ride out a year and fight his way into the squad. Rakitic on the other hand came in and said he wants to establish his own legacy and if necessary wait for his chance to show what he's got. Pretty big difference in attitudes. I'm not saying this was the only factor Fab didn't make it as a barca player, but I think it played a huge part.

The bus underestimated the size of the failure to capture John Stones.

Truth.

Re: English Football 2015-16

BAIDS, isn't what is happening at Chelsea a refutation of your theorems? If managers are ~meaningless and performance is dictated by ~budget, why is chelsea ~ sunderland so far?

Re: English Football 2015-16

Right now Chelsea point projection with title form is 72 points. According to my math we need lol mourinho for 7 games more in order for them to be at the level of Spurs projection.

EDIT: Although Im not sure if a new manager is going to get them back at that. If Chelsea go 2 points per game then they are likely to finish just below Spurs.

Quite. I also don't recall much complaining about the style of football when he was lifting the title last season.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Top 4:

Liverpool 2.64
Tottenham 3.2
Chelsea 3.9

Why is der markt higher on Liverpool than Tottenham? I havent seen either of them much, but Liverpool are 3 points behind and have been playing worse afaict. Has teh Klopptimism actually moved markets or has it been like this all season?

Plop have the stronger squad and if Spurs had their injury problems I.e their main two strikers injured - which actually is not possible as we only have one recognised striker - then Spurs would be ****ed.

Re: English Football 2015-16

A fully fit Sturridge does seem like a thing that might never reappear though.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Plop/Spuds steps for top4:

1. avoid key injuries (Spuds standing better with this at this point)
2. hope your biggest rivals neglect following step1
3. hope that United won't score 80% of their shots on target
4. hope that the resurrection of Chelsea come too late (we are pretty close to this point imo)

Weirdly enough Arsenal title challenge steps are pretty similar.

---

Also Spurs are not very good at protecting leads which should be crucial with the mid-bottom table clubs starting to swing their dongs at you when you are a goal or two up.
