If I weren't a Chelsea supporter, with their absolute train wreck of a season, I might even be able to indulge in a little schadenfraude at ManU supporters' expense.
Alas, we look set for a 9th place finish.
And WTF with Guus fielding a side at the weekend that featured 10 of the same 11 that started on opening day, the ones most responsible for this clusterf*** of a season??
Apart from the idea that that was Chelsea's strongest side, I didn't get his argument that he needed to field the strongest side he could out of respect for the league. Bollocks. The league goes on for more than just this one season. The academy is full of players that could be pushing for first team minutes if only they would be given first team minutes in these meaningless games. Who cares if the outcomes of Chelsea's matches impact Spurs, Leicester or West Ham or anybody else's? Play the damn kids. They have literally nothing to lose, and playing in games against teams that are fighting for places in Europe or to stay out of the relegation zone guarantees that they will be experiencing real Premier League action, rather than games played between mid-table sides that have nothing to gain or lose and are played at a preseason friendly's pace.
Gonna be the same thing this summer and next year: the academy lads are too inexperienced to be trusted to play in the league, so we'll buy another half dozen plonkers from overseas, spending millions and millions of pounds in the process, and field a team that has zero cohesion.
I fear that 2017 will not be the only season Chelsea are at sea and without European football.
