O Neil. No He went crazy with the money and Lerner didn;t keep him under control. He put together a decent team but fell short of what we should've achieved with the money he spent. Way too many wasteful signings on silly money.

Where do we go from here? Anyone see D Bent staying on for much longer? With the very best will in the world Albrighton, Bannan and Delph are good prospects and maybe one of them in a solid midfield should;ve been phased in. Instead we'll be heavily relying on at least two of them. Petrov is a 60 minute man and not strong enough to carry an inexperienced player. Jenas on a loan deal is just a stop gap and this should;ve been the signing of the summer. If the idea is to cruise through this year and get a proper midfielder in there next year then its a dangerous game to play. Let's see how we get on against Everton and Newcastle, I think 7th is cloud cuckoo land TBH with this midfield.

Everton are usually our main rivals for the 7th spot, have they improved their squad? Stoke will probably do well, who else would you say will be most likely to finish above us.

Who will be able to afford to buy him? We aren't going to sell him at a loss are we. Cant see any of the top 6 wanting or needing him. Where is he going to go? Stoke? Sunderland? Everton?

Bent may well go but his options of a move are seriously limited.As it stands he's a Villa player.If he is sold in 12 months then we'll get a good fee for him as he's under contract for 4yrs.Can't see the point in worrying what might happen.Lets face it how many players have we got in the first team who were there when O'Neill took over in 2005? Gabby? Fact is the club's been there a long time and will continue to be there.

Darren Bent won't go if he gets 15-20 goals a season here. As long as he keeps getting into the England squad, he'll stay atleast for another season. Top 4 all have their own class strikers. He won't go back to Spurs, and Everton are skint.

Everton, Stoke, Sunderland, Fulham, Stoke and Bolton. We'll be fighting it out with Newcastle and Wolves.

So how have Everton got better, ditto for Fulham and Bolton. Sunderland have bought a lot of players in, but how many of them are that good. I agree about Stoke challenging us, ditto Everton, the rest may, but dont think for a minute all of them will finish ahead of us.

Lets be realistic rather than blabbing on about some mystery arab, Lerner has taken the club forward, but the wages paid to some players has been excessive to say the least. We are not the only club to have curbed on spending and still think we can finish 7th-8th.

With regards to Hutton, can you tell me how Luke Young has been doing while gaining splinters in his arse for QPR. Jenas we cant say anything about as only played 60 minutes. As for finishing 7th or 8th, I still stick by that comment, we have massively under achieved, bit like you in the boudoir Ades
