Lille might disagree 

Crazy season in france, great to see really.

although without knowing the numbers....sure they are not in the bottom 3 in the league, wage wise.

Well 8th would have been ok, and a decent season. I did say 5th - 8th, realistically...would say thats fair really.

we could finish higher, its a fine line. We are not that much worse than Leicester really...took 4 points off them this season. After top 2/3 not much difference.

Not that much worse than Leicester 😀😀😀

Like I said....we took 4 points off them.

And we finished as close to 2nd as we did 14th.

it really is a fine line, and not much between many of those in the top 10.

Imo that shows how weak the league is after the top 2/3.

Sheff Utd took three points off Man Utd 

Can't see there being many comparisons between the two teams

Bielsa has done an amazing job at Leeds. 
 

He’s had some tough spells at lazio (as in didn’t happen) Lille and Marseille granted but the things he’s done at Bilbao, Chile, Newells beforehand show he’s class. 
 

His teams play great football, I’m amazed his credentials get analysed but David Moyes (WW hero) is seen as a great for nearly qualifying for the champions league with West Ham once. 

  If fan polls were run at every club of who they’d want as next manager and it was a straight shoot out of them 2 Moyes wouldn’t get 20%

Tomski has an odd aversion to successful British managers such as Moyes, McCarthy and Pulis.  It's a hard one to fathom.

There were a lot of Toffee noses that were anti Moyes... Its worked out splendidly for them since he left. 😁

Shows that saying we took x points off a team doesn’t highlight being not far off them 

Sheff united finished 51 points behind united.

we finished 6 points from Leicester.

its chalk n cheese ffs

It’s a meaningless point

Chelsea lost 5-2 to West Brom, it doesn’t mean West Brom are suddenly up there amongst Europe’s elite 

Saying “we were six points off Leicester” is scraping the barrel especially when every other team between you and them has a better argument

nope, its context on the season and a more realistic measure of ‘how far off’ other teams we are.

its a fine line, 1 more win would have had us in Europe, thats how close it was.

we was closer to 3rd, than 12th.

Used Leicester as they are the main team in the top 6 that are seen to have had the most successful season, maybe west ham too.

There’s this thing called a league table 

it decides where teams finish, you don’t get bonus points for taking four points off Leicester 

Otherwise you get deducted them for losing to Burnley and Sheff Utd 

It’s like saying we wouldn’t have lost if the other team hadn’t scored

you clearly dont get it, context.

its like laughing at a team celebrating finishing 3rd in division 4, fireworks, singing at coaches....in isolation, without context!!
