As I said it's your opinion.
I haven't watched a Champions league game for 2 years at a guess, could be longer, as it bores me to death. Champions League has no appeal to me whatsoever.
Do you think we will win the Champions League with Moyes?. If yes, then pass me some of what you are smoking.
If no, then what is the point of getting all excited about getting there
We could possibly have a go in the Europa if he keeps building, but I doubt it.
As for the players being scared of Liverpool ffs, if that's the case the buck stops firmly with the manager on that one.
A team that didn't have a recognised center back to call on, and we were scared
They totally outplayed us and made us look like the West Ham of old.
As for Ancelotti, if I was an Everton fan, I would be very disappointed if he didn't win anything there.
They've spent the money.
So I'm living in the eighties because I want West Ham to actually fucking win something,
Jog on mate ffs
I agree with you on the CL but to be honest, I would love to watch West Ham play away to a Champions League giant.
But fair enough, you will likely go through the next 10 years in pain because even the FA cup and League cups are almost always won by the super clubs in England. The last time a team outside the top 4 won the FA cup it was 2008. Same with the league cup, only two outside the top 4 in 10 years
It can be done but not only do the top 4 see it as a Mickey Mouse cup they still easily win them because of the power of their squads.
I guess that makes every team in the league a failure other than the top 4.
As far as Everton are concerned, they did indeed spend a lot of money under Koeman as well and he nearly took them down. I dont see them in this list of cup winners at present. If they finish 5th and qualify for Europe, I bet they will be happy. Their expectations are probably much the same as (most of) us. I hope they do win a trophy as it might be more interesting than Man City or Arsenal
My expectations are a lot more realistic than yours. If we finished even 5th and qualified for Europe I would be happy. It represents a huge improvement on last year and if we were to finish in the CL places then bragging rights are worth a lot. You may not watch the CL and I dont much myself but much of the world does and that potentially makes us a more attractive side to play for.
First is LC, second is FA Cup
No doubt we want the same thing. A team that consistently competes I guess.
All boils down to investment at the end of the day, and reaching the Euro spots could attract better and bigger buyers if the dildos fuck off, and players of course, so I see the attraction of that.
It's a catch 22 for Moyes as at the moment he seems to have a good team spirit going and players that want to compete, but if you want to compete on the biggest stage, then you've got to get in big egos, and that's where we've fallen down before.
I've loved watching us this season, but find I can't even get excited by it, keep asking myself is it a fluke, a totally different season to what we know and when are the wheels coming off.
Not that it's a pointer, but speaking to a Chelsea friend of mine and he said "You're doing well....at the moment". Which sums up how I'm looking at it at the moment.
I really hope we can maintain this standard of performance, but would like Moyes to really have a go in the cup next season, whatever happens this.
