    john,the 1st step is admitting u have a problem

    SB,
    You posted this on the Modric thread - so I thought I'd keep it in one neat place and reply here. You said:
    'john, i can waste more time explaining things u have picked me up on. but u still wouldnt understand it when u are in this deluded state.

    i especially love the way u ignore the part about harrys & yours 360 on what your aspirations should be!

    never did answer that did u!
    ...'

    Yes I have answered that on numerous occasions.

    I haven't seen where 'arry didn't try to win the CL spot. I haven't seen when 'arry didn't attempt the CL when we were in it.
    I don't recall having seen, any comment from 'arry where he says he isn't trying to get CL football or even the title (when that was possible). If you know of such comments, post me the link in context. Don't do a Sun headline on me and quote '....'Arry Says He'll Settle For A Point.....' bit, without quoting the whole thing.

    If you're actually talking about 1 game in 38, which I think is all you seem to focus on, then I have also addressed that.
    We dominated Villa. We had something like 19 corners and 20 shots. If that is a team that isn't trying to win, then please show me the stats of a team that is. I think you confuse trying to win with the result. IE - I don't think Chelsea 'tried' to beat Barca - but they did - weird of me eh? I think we tried to beat Villa - we just didn't - that happens in football (oops, sorry, do I have to be black and white here or is grey ok) - weird of me again to think that way eh?
    Personally, I think your issue is that you think Daffy is great and you were simply peeved that 'arry didn't use him. But 'arry not using Daffy isn't in any way shape or form not trying to win.

    You also said on the Modric thread:
    'yes theres more to it then that, but we would be here all day if we look deeply in to minor details which pale incomparision to the main details & factors.
    iam grey with the main factors & details.
    whereas u are grey with the minor factors & details.
    when u are wrong u then start being grey & throwing in minor details to cloud the argument u are losing.

    u can cloud it as much as u want but at the end of the day-

    whatever minor detail u can come up with, it doesnt change the fact harry settled for 1pt & he settled for 4th.
    he even said so himself. & when it backfired, he still said he would go back & settle for the same things!....'

    Minor detail - to me a minor detail is a substitution in the 89th minute of a game. A major detail(s) in that game is the amount of possession we had, where we had it, the corners we won and shots we had.
    Focusing on one game and ignoring the other 37 -isn't that then looking at a minor detail and ignoring the major part. We did finish 4th - is that a major or minor detail?

    '...whatever minor detail u can come up with, it doesnt change the fact harry settled for 1pt & he settled for 4th.
    he even said so himself. & when it backfired, he still said he would go back & settle for the same things!...'

    I have addressed that - again if there's another quote or comment from 'arry that you're referring to post the link, and I'll then address that comment based on the context in which it was made.

    Anything else you feel I've missed? If there is, maybe we can get away from the '....you keep ducking this....' type comment.

    Yours smilingly,
    Mr myopic, weird, delusional, stupid, black and white (but sometimes too grey),....etc
