Sure, they can't play in the champions league (and who are we kidding, we won't get far), but at this rate we won't even make it into champions league next year.
I assume they play Bos because he is one of the few healthy people in a team that is defensively thin.
It is an ugly year, like growing out a bad haircut. If we can keep our CL spot and pick up maybe Hazard over the summer, I would consider that success under the circumstances. In the meantime we should play our kids too. Lukaku should get time.
It will be hard to judge AVB fairly until he can build his own squad. Right now he is stuck with Mourinho zombie dead-enders, stop-gap randoms collected over the years, petrobillionaire impulse buys, a few promising kids and Mata.

England are terrible. They don't play football like English. No heart, no fight, no one gives a shit. Why is that?Edited by DLester - 2/1/12 at 9:38pm
