Everyone missing it yet? So as the season closed we said goodbye to the Lane, unbeaten and patted each other on the back for what was a really good campaign. Scored the most, conceded the least, Kane had the golden boot all the recipes for winning things...... Alas we came second (only Spurs aye?) We seemed to have as usual other clubs trying their best to mock from their lowly positions seeking some sort of solace in their own failures. So I thought we could have a debate on here about the big/top 6 and see who people think were the biggest losers of the 16/17 season. Chelsea - Premier League winners, FA cup runners up. For a club with an embarrassment of riches at its disposal, especially with no European football as a distraction this is pretty much what really should be expected of them. Spurs - Runners up in the League a poor CL campaign, semis of the FA cup and CL qualification 2nd year running. Despite all the stats mentioned earlier Silverware was really needed to put the cherry on the cake. Manchester City - 3rd in the league, Round of 16 in the CL throwing a 2 goal aggregate to Monaco and an FA cup semi final. Again with seemingly a bottomless pit of money to hand pick nearly whoever they want including having a renowned top coach in Pep this to me is quite poor they should really be battling it out with Chelsea not scraping into the top 4 with a few weeks to go. Liverpool - 4th (shoe horned the scum finally out of the gravy troth to the dismay of Bayern). Liverpool seem to be steadily improving under Klopp CL is a great achievement for them currently and will help them in their rebuild. At times they look great at other times they really struggle against smaller sides. It won't happen but I'd love to prise Coutinho and Manè from them. Arsenal - 5th the FA cup and Europa League Qualification. The Cup win being their 1 saving grace in what really was a poor season for them. Tragically having no shame the club that boasted top 4 was bigger than winning trophies now use the FA cup (the cup they were too big for) as a badge of honour to try and claw back some dignity. (Only the Scum aye?) Manchester Utd - 6th, a Cup double including a European Honour (despite Mourinho claiming the charity shield as a trebble) it's no secret Utd have fallen from their lofty status the last few years and the football they play currently (considering the fees and wages) is let's say 'Allardyesque' it's hard to argue a double season is a poor one. Now I'm basing my verdict on the club's as a whole as to how I rate their achievements this season, money/wages/manager/squad etc So in order of best to worst- 1. Reluctantly Chelsea top the pile, the Premier league Crown is the hardest thing to win and the biggest prize barring the CL. For them to be so glad at beating us really does show how worried they are. 2. Although they finished 6th (still with CL qualification) Utds double was quite an achievement and spares our blushes in our abysmal recent record in Europe. The Football they play is stinky though and 6th was rubbish! 3. Spurs, Good football, much smaller budget than the rest with youth and an English core. The silverware eluded us again unfortunately, but CL qualification 2 years running and the only team to make a title run in was a successful season. 4. Liverpool been out in the wilderness for a while despite the odd flash with Brenda (look at Tottenham) Rodgers. Klopp has began to imprint his style of play on the team and securing CL for them is a plus. 5. Arsenal their FA cup win their only chink of light in an embarrassing campaign for them, oh how the country is delighted to finally see this 'Giant' of the game removed from the big European stage and not before time either their CL heritage has been nothing short of an embarrassment yet still they think they're up there with the best. 6. Man City, they've got it all the star studded line up the block buster manager, more money than Levy's personal bank account. To be limping in to top 4, making no attempt at a title challenge, zero in the silverware department they for me are the biggest losers of the Top 6 this season. What are your thoughts?
