    Different like the 2015-16 season, when Mourinho finished miles below us and it wasn't his first season in charge at Chelsea? :p

    Great manager, but it doesn't make sense to claim he is too experienced to finish below us, when he has done so two seasons in a row.
    We could just as easily make claims about teams not finishing below us because they spend tens/hundreds of millions more than us on signings and wages.

    Perhaps what I should of said is that I think he will finish above us with his resources.

    Top sides at home, are pretty good.

    I think the real issue is - they think they're not as good as they are, is more to the point.

    hopefully the last few remaining in denial can take their blinkers off and acknowledge what is staring us in the face. we are not going to get anywhere near winning the league by dropping 12-13 points away at our rivals every season. if it couldn't get even close to happening in a season with an almost certainly never-to-be-repeated home record, it definitely won't be happening when our home record regresses closer to its mean.

    we need to get better in this regard.

    How many points do you think Chelsea dropped away from home last season against their rivals?

    You know what, I think you might have something there.

    Here's something I just realised too. We've been crap for a lot longer then we've been good.
