Good oh!!lets get this little beauty out of the way and put our cards on the table over what we would consider failure and success this year. Normally at best this divides people into two camps,at worst several other sides beyond this to bitch about what we are failing at,or over reaching by being better placed than the 6th spot our financial dealings,wages point to (alledgedly ). Ah yes the two camps well lets game of thrones it as an analogy.House europa-CL for those who follow the unholy banners of uefa`s cash cow,where making another 40m (alledgedly) is the be all and end all to have a chance of sitting on the iron throne (sponsored by Sky and a bit of BT).As rare as rocking horse dung is the claim that we should join House CL as we have a chance to win it,not my words just over the years the stance seemingly not taken by those who desire top 4 above all others. Apparently in this clan there is a split as many despise the half brother bastard who heads house europa-league,and deem just ignoring this competition as the worthy way to gain favour with house CL,this would be currently the house scouse (or house chav this year too),where winter is never coming cos its our fooking year pal,though some of house spurs followers follow this unholy orthodoxy at times of shunning house europa league. Then there is House silverware,old schooled and care only to attend service at their holy temple wembley or some random european temple to celebrate the mass of "final day",where great gifts are bestowed and achievements are recorded in the scrolls of history and used in defence of House scouse who claim to own the whole bloody library.These silverware fanatics actually believe that is worthy to adorn their tables with goblets of FA cup winners 2017,or fly banners with league cup winners from their turrets.But the otherside point out to the lack bankable loot from such a scenario and careless if we submit early in such quests by fielding our weakest warriors in such small battles,nay mere skirmishes. But really thats all just a load of poncy bollox,are you a 4th place above everything chap or a win a trophy chap when push comes to shove.What baffles me most is that one or other is not mutually exclusive,as I always hope we do both,as I am sure most think they do.(and then hope fazio is rotated in to play so toby or jan can have a lie down ) Cards on the table for me big shiney trophy over merely qualifying (or rather earn a pot full of cash) for a competition no one really believes we can win ATM.That is very simplistic answer to a compliated debate,so a trophy for me is success above finishing 6th or even 4th. 2017 I believe we can win something,we have a squad bar strikers to compete on all 4 fronts and still battle top 4 or above.Saying that I wouldnt sack anyone if we only manage 6th or even less and went pot-less.Just keep the good attacking style we have found again and this native will remain completly happy regardless.
