    Tactically, shouldn't we want Chelsea to win the CL?

    Hmmm. Bit convoluted but, yes, it clips the purse strings for Newcastle and Tottenham if it happens. However, that said, there are two ways to have the highest building; one, knock everyone else´s down and two, forget them and build the highest oneself. I´m for building and forget what others are doing.

    • Ironically Loki, I've been thinking that for weeks now. There's really no question in my mind that Pardew has to be favorite for Manager of the year and his purchases have been outrageously good for very little laid out, 2 years in a row for that matter.. Tiote..

      So it just makes me wonder what that man could do with 20M to burn, particularly with alot of top tier talent coming from France and 2 superb internationals already in the team, Cabaye/Ben Arfa..

      With Harry staying, you always know what type of style and football to expect from Spurs, plus he's another who makes outstanding purchases without much money, so they could only get better, though they do have to contest with the Modric issue again, buying Adebayor, and potentially fighting off Bale interest.

      Then with Chelsea, the club IMO needs a serious overhaul, and with all the balancing of the books needed, and FFP kicking it, won't be able to do easily in 1 summer like years past, especially without CL money (unless they win).

      In the end, I don't think it really matters because for now, we are still behind all 3 in terms of top quality starting players, with a relatively young core and a ways to go. Plus the summer brings all sorts of surprises, so it almost equates to that dilemma some pondered 2 years ago of us losing to Chelsea at home w/ 1 match to go in order to help them edge out United.. That was really convoluted and twisted, and just delayed the inevitable..
