I don’t think Emery is an awful appointment, but it’s so rushed.
For all that front about taking a considered, thorough approach at appointing a successor to a guy who led for 22 years, this is the epitome of panic buy.
Amazing. Hope it fails miserably.
Would love to see Lloris lifting the FA Cup, but truth be told, where we are now? CL football is a must. We're not going to attract the higher calibre of player we need to push on with Poch's 'second phase' by showing them an FA Cup triumph.
Lokomotiv will be Pot 1 for winning the league.
Madrid (providing they lose to Pool), Atletico, Dortmund, Utd, Shakhtar, Benfica, Napoli and Basel will be Pot 2.
So we’ll have to rely on a real win, or Basel not making the group stage through the quali rounds?
If Sporting win this weekend, they’ll finish above Benfica in Portugal (on head to head) and we’ll be Pot 2 without having to rely on Madrid.
Similar situation with the Swiss league, but not sure what has to happen there.
Who cares, though.
As long as we draw, a Chelsea loss will essentially give us top 4, no? No way Chelsea score 10 against Newcastle or whatever to make up the GD.
I'm getting ahead of myself. This will end in tears. F**KING COME ON, TOTTENHAM.
