Newcastle and Aston Villa issues stem from lack of progress – ESPN FC

Some great points before, and I think its something we’ve touched on before. Newcastle’s lack of ambition or, rather, Mike Ashley’s lack of ambition for Newcastle has played a part in the current problems. I found the author’s points about Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool at the end to be very interesting.

Arsenal have spent a decade happy with where, and what, they are. They might not have fallen, not yet at least, but they have failed to profit from the travails of others; as their traditional peers have stumbled, others have accelerated past them.

But United and Liverpool have already suffered relegations of their own — from contenders for the Champions League to contenders for the Champions League places

If the incoming money from the recent TV deals allow the likes of Tottenham and Everton to continue to improve then there’s no telling what may happen if Arsenal don’t make changes.
