Bottom Fishers Find Bottom Feeders

first_imgA bottom fisher is someone who fishes for bottom feeders.A bottom feeder is the lowest end of the low-end of the food chain, a scavenger, one who eats what others higher on the food chain will not.Bottom fishers have a way of finding bottom feeders. The bottom fisher entices bottom feeders with an offer that appeals to them. The offer is super easy to acquire. It doesn’t take any real work or creativity, you just troll along the bottom until you bump into something. Bottom feeders are lazy, and bottom fishers know it.Those at the top end of the food chain wouldn’t touch what a bottom feeder eats. Top-enders are energetic and fast, and they hunt for more valuable offers, something worthy of their time and their effort. They don’t even see what the bottom feeders see, because they’re never trolling along in the dark scrounging for an opportunity. The top-enders never worry about bottom feeders competing with them for an opportunity; the bottom feeders are too slow, too lazy, and aren’t willing to engage in the chase.You know who the bottom fishers are. They spend a lot in your category. They are concerned only with price. They don’t recognize the value that you create, and if they do, they aren’t willing to pay for that value.Are you a bottom feeder? It isn’t hard to get there. You take the bottom fisher’s offer, even though it is foul and provides nothing of real value. Then you do it again. And pretty soon you’re used to it, and without meaning to, you’ve become a bottom feeder. Then, the only people you know are bottom fishers. Essential Reading!

Ralph Hasenhuttl is not afraid of Premier Leagues top six sides

first_imgSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl believes he’s already proven he can go head-to-head with the Premier League’s big guns.Since replacing the fired Mark Hughes in December, Hasenhuttl has won four of his 13 games in charge at Southampton and will be chasing number five at Arsenal on Sunday.The former RB Leipzig coach famously grabbed his first victory for Southampton against Arsenal at St Mary’s and, in the process, ended the Gunners’ 22-match unbeaten run.The Saints also held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last month and, therefore, Hasenhuttl sees no reason why he should fear Arsenal or any other top team in the Premier League.“We are focusing on the game against a difficult opponent, a very good opponent that we beat once already this year in a big game with a fantastic performance,” said Hasenhuttl, according to Sky Sports.“I’m not afraid about all the big teams because we showed against Chelsea and Arsenal that we can also play against these teams in good matches and we will need to, that’s for sure.“Every game is difficult but I think in the first game we showed that we can bring this surprising result.”Despite the strong results against the big teams, however, Southampton have fallen back into the relegation zone upon failing to win their last three games.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“To take something in the Emirates Stadium is far away from being easy but we don’t think about that,” said Hassenhuttl.“We know that we can be an opponent in an away game that’s not easy to beat, and that’s the only thing that interests us.“That we can be a strong opponent, that we can take another clean sheet in London, like we did against Chelsea.”The Southampton and Arsenal game will take place at the Emirates Stadium with kick-off set for 3:05 PM (CET).Ready for a big week ahead! 👊 #saintsfc pic.twitter.com/zQ2eALTtlB— Southampton FC (@SouthamptonFC) February 23, 2019last_img read more
