...with their stupid comments, about how we spend too much and how we are in trouble if TF leaves us. How players THEY are in for, who subsequently sign for us, automatically become "mercenary's with no ambition", "only there for the money" etc.
If I was a player looking to join a PL team outside the top 6, I would prefer to join QPR over anyone else. Why? We are on the up - new training ground, new stadium, great investment, ambitions to move forward!
Everton, Villa, Sunderland etc. Year in, year out, mid table. Don't challenge for silverware, don't challenge for Europe, unlikely to be relegated. Why would any player want to join such boring teams?!
Mark Hughes was ridiculed for leaving Fulham due to lack of ambition, and then rolling up at LR. Why would he want to stay at Fulham? They have had Dempsey, the biggest name in US football for years, and have never once gone on a tour to the US to grow their fanbase. Where is the forward thinking? Oh right, they didn't have any.
Apparently, we only buy our way to success (when we got promoted) or safety (last season)
EVERY team buys their way to success/mid table boredom/etc. I can't remember the last time I saw a fully home grown 1st eleven for any team. We get judged more as we buy star names, other teams buy mediocre players and when they (eventually) discover a decent one, they all dance around going "Look at us! We develop our talent! We're the best!". Please just stop talking!
Teams like Norwich and Swansea especially, need to stop mouthing off, not sure what they have ever achieved to think they are in a position to judge us!
So in conclusion, **** everyone and lets get going!
Nice post, a stress-buster
