I'm not saying we're entitled to be in the top, but with the amount of money we spent....we should be in the champions league at the very least.Indeed, I agree that we don't have any divine right to be at the top.
Big clubs have come and gone. It seems like our time was the 70's and 80's, with the scum having theirs right now, and Man City's is just starting. Same with perhaps PSG and Dortmund. This Barca team is the best team ever, and will likely never get as good as it was at least 3 years ago.
I'll be delighted with a return to the summit, obviously, but to assume that because we have won in the past means we are entitled to stay there is laughable.
