Slow news day during the international break......report what G Neville said in the pre-match build up of a match over a week ago. This journalism malarkey is getting worse

They should just give us the trophy and stop fucking about with these other teams who get more points than us.

Had a bit of a ruck with my old Unk who started talking like lazy/sentimental journo. Loads of shite about "ooooh we've won the most points over two seasons, ooooh we had more possession than Leicester the year they won it" etc etc. Bore off Unk.
Season starts in August (September for Harry!) and ends in May, team with most points wins. Simple yet beautiful. Team that gets the most points deserves to be Champions, nothing else counts.

But its gonna be inevitable after the last 3 decades that if we achieved this particular stat that people would mention it from time to time. It's very unusual for us and the media aren't used to the idea that we're better than most of the sky favourites.

We should enjoy talking about it without sounding like we think we were hard done by in some way.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. There's a lot of luck involved over a whole season. The refs are totally inconsistent too, particularly in the EPL.

And don't try and say things even themselves out over a season, that's the biggest fallacy in football.

All Neville said was over the last 2 years we were the best team. His favourite to watch. But we have nothing to show for it. We need to win things to keep our best players as they will have admirers.
