His English needs some serious work. He’s put what I believe to be a decent statement out to the press tonight but because his English isn’t that great, his point isn’t put across as well as it could be.
“We need to improve, little by little. It could be 10, 12 or 15 games. No limit.
“Yes, I am worried because we need points. We have a good squad and, I’m sure in the future, we’ll be better.”
I understand the point he is trying to make, that the squad needs time etc, but football isn’t a no limit game. If we don’t decide to start playing until 30 or so in, we’ll be in the Championship!
“I think in some positions we are better than last year, in others we are worse. The squad is the squad.
“For me, the big problem is adaptation and the need for time. The worst thing for us was losing Berbatov at the last moment and we didn’t have time to sign a new player. But business is business. It was impossible.”
That last bit is bullshine. Berbatov was always going, I don’t care what anyone says. We should have got a deal for Arshavin or whoever else done before the last day of the transfer window. Ok, so we have Fraizer ‘Spurs is a stepping stone’ Campbell but I’m not pinning much hope on his shoulders.
“We want to win all the matches, but it’s harder in 38 league games to finish above Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. In the cups, you can win five or six matches and win a trophy, so that is easier.”
This would indicate to me that he realises how important a win is tomorrow night. The UEFA Cup is probably our best chance of some silverware and I don’t think we can afford to go out there for the 2nd leg with anything other than a win.
Apart from the Chelsea game, (the only game we haven’t lost!!) I’ve tipped us to win every one. (Yep, lost them all). On this note, my prediction for tomorrow is a 4-0 win for Wisla Krakow, it’s nailed on!
