But is it though?
It's not like we have drastically reduced our spending.
We are still spending significant amounts each season but our squad is unbalanced and definitely weaker than it has been previously.
We have legs for a start, we lack a leader OR 2 and we defo lack a killer instinct, Long straight balls leading to goals, well that is a joke but simple to sort out, get defenders who when called upon are able to cope, with the posession we have. Otter and Kola, are not that busy, they just have no pace to get them out of problems when they come, Chelsea exposed that weakness only after we missed 5 chances to make it a stroll in the park, Spurs and Chelsea have beat us without the ball ! We need to convert chances we had enough at Spurs to have a point, Saturday was a worry in the fact that 1-2 it was game over & when they broke again and scored. I think we are building this season and Pep is aware we need major changes even Kun, needs to be facing a battle for a shirt, we need variety to our game. I liked the passion of the players last few mins, it would never come to that if we take our chances. All that said if you have a Gnome in nets then you are gonna concede.
