How often do we ‘blow it’ against a bottom 3 side? How many times does a bottom 3 side either do the ‘double’ over us or get at least 4 points out of 6? The answer – MANY. Many years ago it was Bolton, a few years ago it was Wolves, then it was West Brom, this time it’s Wigan. I could go on as to be honest there are many more that can be mentioned, but we don’t want to be too dispirited.
On the day we had good news /bad news. The good news was that Bale has said he would stay at the club if we reach the top 4, the bad news is he wont if we don’t – and it’s now obvious he (and others) won’t be at the club next year.
Lets be honest with ourselves. If we can’t get a win in two matches against teams like Wigan, we simply do not deserve to get into the Champions League. AVB said when he took over that he would be a ‘failure’ if we did not reach the top 4, so perhaps he should also start looking for a new job?
My concern (and those of you who read my first blog back in August) will concur, is that we will need to start looking for a new manager and new players.
As I said only a couple of weeks ago, if we struggle against teams like Lyon and lose to second-rate Swiss sides like Basel, we would not go far in the Champions League anyway.
What would happen if we reached the Champions League? Levy would do his usual and just keep the money and not spend it when needed (just like in January). We need a clear out at the ‘top’ before we are to go any further.
I feel devastated that we teams like Wigan (a bottom 3 side) take 4 out of 6 points from us, but as I said, it has happened many times before and no doubt will unfortunately happen again. But check the records over the years to see how many teams in the bottom 3 have taken massive points away from us. So once again we are the laughing stock of North London, London in general, and in fact probably the whole country.
I desperately hope I am wrong in this situation, but I hate to say it, but it has to be said. I really think it’s Goodnight Nurse for yet another year.
