I say this, of course, with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Oh, the luxury of finishing in the top four almost every year and getting onto Europe. Oh, to have had a manager of his worth and intelligence over the last few years instead of Gullit, Pardew, Souness, Allardyce, Kinnear and Carver (Carver?!). Then again, oh, to have an owner who had some pride in his club and knew what he was doing...
Meanwhile, in the real world, we plunge inexorably down to the Championship.
