I don't understand this FIFA rule about youngsters.
It protects whom against whom ?
In any case we had this problem in 2009 and we did it again !
Who is respnsible (if not Putin) ?

Unpopular opinion but Rudiger ain't it. His error prone and has less of an upside to him than Luiz. I would spend all our budget in the summer on a whole new back 4. Never mind a striker. 

Rudiger? He made one little error but he has been one of our most consistent players. His pace is such a useful asset and has helped us on so many occasions this season. He does not need replacing and don't see much better options on the market who are better than him tbh.

We are truly fucked with that Arsenal win. Don't see where Arsenal will drop points from here on

They don't have teams in the top 6 left to play also. When pundits like Merson and Neville rule their chances of top 4 out, it confuses me. Spurs still have to go to Liverpool and City. We still have to go to Anfield and Old Trafford. Also would not be surprised to see us drop points at Everton next week.

Arsenal look big favorites now to finish in the top 4...

We need to win our next 3 league games by hook or crook. Think Arsenal will draw one of their next 3 but we need to capitalize

We can not afford to lose points in the next 3 league games.

They've sort of been forgotten about. All Talk of us spurs man u not much on them. Despite having like you say easier fixtures and that goal diff advantage over us and Man U

Really not liking this indirect style of having possession ... we hardly had a shot on goal right till the subs came in or when we went behind. Yes we look great when we are having possession but the possession is never dominant in the final third ... baring a few through ball or lob in the box there was nothing from the center. We will not be able to break a team (8 out 10 times) which is going to sit deep and play counter. Kudos to Wolves, there were good to watch ... there pressing were top notch. 

There are so many flaws which has been there since the start and we dont seem to find solution for those. ... We were so bad when Wolves had the ball on the counter, they always were ahead of our defenders. Corners, seems we dont practice them ... 90% of the time it a waste. No creativity, we couldnt break them. Why dont we take shots on goals is beyond me (we only had 3 total shots I guess) ... This was a game Giroud could have provided us with physicality and ariel strength, not sure why he didnt get in. 

Food for thought: Even if we overhaul our squad and replace players ... what guarantee is there that we will win such games with ease because tactically we will be playing the same way!!!

Still think they will bottle it however we can't be trusted to win 3/4 straight games at the moment.

The wing backs have a lot to do with what we see in this team. Nobody attacks the by-line, the crosses are absolute shite and the defensive side is just as bad.

Watching us in that first half today was as boring and lifeless as I have seen in PL history in all honesty.

Kovacic offers this team nothing, I mean fuck all. The striker situation is the remains of scatter gun buying of shit players.

Overall we are punching above out weight in this league position, we are bog average.

Yup our squad is average at best. We need to get rid of at least 7 of our current starters and rebuild. Being in the champ league will help because of the revenue, so hopefully we do make top 4. We need a new back 4, another CM, a striker and a right winger if we are going to challenge next season.

Unfortunately way it's looking we're just going to have to need and not get.. Hopefully we can get summer but this is going to drag and drag.

I would build around Rudiger, he's brilliant, the others are very average indeed.

Kovacic is a pretty looking footballer but it ends there, all foreplay and no penetration in all honesty. RLC is a better player but he won't get a sniff whilst all these people are around.

I'm certain we will get the summer window, we just need to buy well. That's why not having a dof at the moment is such a shame

I'm not too sure about him either he seems to have an error in him every game. Much rather we clean the slate and bring in a new back 4. Kind of like what Klopp did. Rudiger would be good to have in the squad just like how lpool kept Lovren around for depth. We really missed a boat by not getting Van Dyk

If we are reshuffling the back 4 and ripping the squad to shreds like you are saying it will take more than 3-4 seasons, based on purely how this board work.

Both wings backs need upgrading, that will see a huge marked improvement. If the manager/club have any heart they will make sure RLC plays a big part going forward from here on in. 

Regarding the front line, I think we all know what we want.
