I only had 17 first team players fit for the last six weeks of the season plus Lallana from the reserves, and Miniain wasn’t eligible for the Champions League. I didn’t think I’d be able to last the distance in all competitions with the amount of games I had.
I didn’t think Hernandez would be able to get near 50 goals again or Valencia could get 30 assists. How wrong was I?
I’ve got the England job too now that Capello retired and they offered it me without me applying, but I almost applied for the Spurs job when Harry retired, but I suspect it’s a cover on the game for him going to prison for tax evasion.
I’ve brought in Gotze, Lennon & Tevez all on free transfers, plus I’ve signed Pjanic for £8.25m from Roma. His contract was up in a year. I also signed Papadopoulos from Schalke for £21m now that Rio’s retired to the coaching staff, I need more cover at centre back.
