Not the best analogy, especially given we actually signed seven - albeit half as trainees - of our key 90s players over the next couple of months (okay, Kanchelskis technically arrived a week before Rotterdam, but few fans knew anything about him and very few of us had gone to Selhurst).Red Devil said:I can remember the fans saying in 1991 that we had won the European Cup Winners Cup but needed to buy X Y and Z as well as A B and C in order to maintain the momentum.
We didn't. Fergie brought out the famous class of 92 who ran away with the Premiership for the next 12 years, near enough.
Are you joking, or have you seen something in some of the lads IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve missed? The academy is patchy at best at the moment imo, and certainly nothing close to the absurd strength we had in 92. I'd be interested in exactly which of the lads you had in mind. For the record they didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do the treble last year, that was the reserves.Red Devil said:We now are in the enviable position where we have a similar class in the youth team.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll concede that point (although IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d dispute the extent of the difference) but I must point out we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to compare to those clubs do we? It is the train-wreck history of Inter over the past fifteen years those putting forward my argument use to illustrate the point! The immense turnover is the main reason Inter havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t finished on top of the table for years, and why Real consistently underachieve.Compared to other top clubs like madrid, inter, and chelsea i would say we are light years ahead in terms of players having time to gel with each other
