Player Valuation: £70m
Let’s not get out of hand. Look at the table now, we are what…joint 7th and a point off 5th and we have had no real goal threat for weeks.
This league is poor beyond the top 3/4 teams and has been for a few years. There isn’t a massive amount between the teams fighting for 4/5th to 13/14th.
The one thing we didn’t have yesterday was solidity and athleticism that West Ham just showed to beat Spurs. It really makes me wonder how much different we would have been now if Moyes never left and got the influx of the Moshiri money.
I don’t get this at all. The league is far from poor - I’d say the quality is now higher than its ever been, hence why English teams are dominating in Europe. (It’s easy to imagine any of the top 4 winning the European Cup)
The likes of Bolton used to finish in the top 6, that wouldn’t be happening now.
The top 8 (big six plus Leicester and West Ham) are legit good sides, and the tier below that - Villa, Wolves, Leeds are all very capable on their day.
