Just like I said at the TD. If all you are going to do is get Oduya, just play Olsen, we'll end up in the same place.
We seem content to be middle/lower of the pack type of club.

Look at them now.
They squeaked in after a horrendous start, they were on fire since 2012 started and kept it rolling. Different than most squeak-ins of note.

Did I miss a memo or something. Has the model of building a team changed to: let's get in the playoff's and hope to get lucky instead of trying to build the best damn team possible?
