When you see spurs with all there resources getting pumped at home to Bayern money aside maybe just as well we're in el because it might have got messy.

{Ed007's Note - Who cares about getting pumped when you're getting millions of £s for it though?}

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't like to see my team getting embarrassed no matter how much they were getting paid Ed.

{Ed007's Note - Me neither mate but there's supporters out there that think the money from the CL is the be all and end all and accept the pumpings because of it.}

No one likes to see their team get pumped but I am pragmatic about it as the CL money makes domestic dominance easier and it also ensures that we can buy a better calibre of player, thus improving our team.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think we would have spent more money in that window if we had got into the CL, do you?}

Is it no good fun watching teams from the mighty EPL getting humbled though? It’s the only time I’m remotely interested. Ach well stay calm and rebuild Hadrian’s Wall.

Even their Disco Lights are p! sh.

{Ed007's Note - 😂

Ed the money is great mate but am one that would rather we could compete and am afraid teams of the ilk of bayern would wipe the floor with us.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

The Europa League is our level. I would be happy with domestic dominance and in the Europa League every year. When they bring in the third competition The rangers will be put in that 1.😂😂😂.

I think you're right there Ed. Withput looking at the figures I'm not even sure that when we have qualified for the CL that we've seen a massive increase in net spend on transfer fees.

{Ed007's Note - I'd agree with that, JT. 👍

I’d take a couple of seasons where we got the odd beating if, we used the money wisely and built a team towards not being embarrassed . Follow the likes of Ajax, they spend more than us regularly but reinvest again with future stars. Plus keep building the academy because even with the champions league money, we would still be dwarfed by the figures that go to the prem and the other big leagues. Unfortunately we don’t invest everything, we prefer to keep the balance sheet looking good .

With that bit more investment Quinn, on the right players of course. Plus more importantly, the right management and tactics, we would fair better. Beaten by better sides, still likely, but I could live with that. There are teams worse than us that go to Barca, PSG etc domestically that don't get scullied the way we have been in the past. That said we need to try and show we're better than the likes of Cluj on a consistent basis first 😅.

Since when was it acceptable for a club as proud as ours to think it is great to "find our level" in the EL? Are we damned to mediocrity by fear of a few "pumpings" in the CL? With increased revenue comes a better calibre of player and so more success which leads to more money - etc - it builds and grows.
Without that ambition comes journeymen players and domestic parity with the other side of the City EVENTUALLY.
The way I am hearing it, it sounds as if some fans might have done a lap of honour round the settee after the Cluj debacle for fear meeting PSG again!
We have a game tomorrow guys - let's beat them and progress to the last 16 - unless of course you fear a bad result.

{Ed007's Note - You sound like a guy trying to get his Mrs to go out on the game so they can buy a fancier TV, then it'll be a fancier car - it's only a few pumpings after all.}

You read my diary Ed?

Only managed to afford an old Black and White portable (ask your mother! ) and a Hillman Imp (ask your father! ) from our nefarious activities!

Tomorrow then - if we put out the team you suggested then aye - 2 - 0 why not eh?
