It’s fairly obvious the squad we have now is not good enough and not big enough to compete well in the Premier League, and if you don’t believe that – then just look at the results we have had this year.
Just like last season we are struggling in the league table in the second half of the season,m and have lost both our games to Sunderland.
Mike Ashley – will spend the money
To build a top ten side
Last season collapse was caused by the shock to the players that Yohan Cabaye was allowed to be sold in January and not replaced – and also the stupidity of Alan Pardew at Hull when he got himself banned for seven games..
And on the playing side of things it didn’t help that we lost our best player half way through the season, and a few months ago Mike Ashley and company also weakened the squad to get some money into the coffers.
And that’s why we are where we are today – in 13th place and plummeting down the league table.
So all the talk and hype in the papers, about Mike spending big money in the summer is true, but it’s not to build a top side.
It’s obvious if we don’t build up the squad this summer we could be in real danger of a relegation fight next season, and that’s the very last thing Mike wants.
The owner wants to keep picking up the big money in the Premier League every May.
So the reason the owner will spend the money this summer, is to ensure we have a team that can be in the middle of the league table and not have to fight relegation.
That’s basically the motivation the current owner has for the club.
That’s the real reason Ashley may even be a little concerned this season, that we have taken only 9 points from a possible 36 available this year.
Money was made at the expense of the squad in January, because the powers that be thought we were safe in the league – but that still may not be the case – especially if the bottom sides keep winning games as they did over the weekend and we keep losing as we’ve done in the last four games.
Ashley needs to do some business in the transfer market, so that in late summer Lee Charnley can come out and tell us all the target for next season is top ten.
We’ve heard all this before, and it’s starting not only be very boring – but depressing too.
