Let me ask you, myself…really all of us, a question. In order to become truly competitive, at what point do we have to start BEING Chelsea and United, spending ungodly amounts of cash, going even more in-debt? At what point do we admit to ourselves that our 17 year olds can’t compete with experienced 30 year olds, except on rare occasions? At what point do we finally become the very thing we hate, in order to win another legitimate trophy? Are salary caps the issue? Are lower salaries the issue? Are limits on “foreign” players the issue? Is it simple bad luck? Bad refs? I don’t see this team even finishing in the top 4. Have we started to take it for granted?
