'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Top 4 favourites with an amazing manager?

It really bugs me that people think Everton are a better side than us and that Moyes is a better manager than AVB. 

I'm going to make a prediction right here, Everton will finish 8th this season. Lets look at the facts. Spurs have played Chelsea, Man U and Man City so far. Everton have faced just Man U, and that was at home. Everton have been incredibly lucky with injuries from the start. Take Jagielka, Baines, Neville, Fellaini and Jelavic out of their team, and they would be in 11th. 

Tottenham have been missing Kaboul, BAE, Parker, Dembele and Adebayor for large chunks of, and in some cases the entire season up until this point. Don't forget that we have also been playing mid-week games in Greece and Slovenia. All this considered, Everton are only 3 points ahead of us. Thats not impressive. 

If Everton finish 4th, I will personally go to the Emirates next season for Arsenal vs Chelsea, in my Spurs shirt with Adebayor on the back. Not going to happen. On the matter of Moyes, I feel he has played a PR blinder in recent years, talking about how 'money's always tight', 'we don't have the resources to compete', etc, etc. It's nonsense, Fellaini cost £15M and has been on about £70K per week since he arrived. They have spent plenty of money on other players like Mirallas, Pienaar and Jelavic, who will all be on wages comparable to Spurs players. 

Martinez has done a great job at Wigan, Moyes has been mediocre. He is nearly as overrated as his team. He has struggled against an ever declining Liverpool in their local derbies for years, and has never won a trophy. AVB as won 3 pieces of silverware, worked for Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Totteham Hotspurs and is only 35 years old. Also, Moyes has had 10 years at Everton, AVB 4 months at Spurs, and they are just 3 points ahead of us after only 11 games. 

AVB is far better than Moyes. This may seem like a pointless rant, but I felt it important to contrast our current position with that of a club that everyone is currently hailing, and with a manger that many thought we should have gone after to replace Harry. 

Despite being a 'work in progress' we are actually in a pretty good position considering we have a new manager, an injury crisis, lost two of our best players and are only 3 point from 4th spot. I will also predict that Spurs finish 4th, 5 points ahead of Arsenal and probably 15 ahead of Everton!
