What would be more boring is not having the ability to at least try and have a go at the big boys every year. Take the top teams of England out and you instantly loose some excitement.
We all know for example that we’re going to get a thumping on Wednesday from Man City, but we have hope. They have after all dropped points in nine games out of twenty five this season.
This season would be way more exciting had it not been for Liverpool’s ridiculous season. Man City not being a power and Leicester doing so well.
Let’s look at the so called big six.
1st Liverpool, runaway winners
2nd Man City, seemingly in turmoil (must be terrible)
4th Chelsea, indifferent season but in a transition
6th Spurs, again indifferent with Jose in charge
9th Man UTD, been on the decline for a while
11th Arsenal, worst of them all, by quite a way
Now look at some other clubs up near the top half.
3rd Leicester, just shows what can happen to well run clubs
5th Sheffield UTD, well what can you say, could and should of been us
7th Wolves, probably lower than they would of liked!
So this whole top six is all that matters stuff is up for debate. If a club like Leicester could have a sustained period of European football who knows what they could achieve, especially with Rodgers in charge.
This is why yet again, we are such a disappointment. West Ham is a huge club, huge fan base in a densely populated wealthy City.
If we were well run, we could have decent relative success.
There’s no doubt there is way to much money in modern football, players get paid to much, we pay to much to watch games and to yes of course, like life, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, but it can be changed.
