That's the kind of thinking you get at other clubs. I'm not making any excuses, our league form is terrible and something is wrong for sure. Based on the idea we were supposed to be improving from 7th spot.
You spend Ģ100m in the summer to challenge for 4th and get absolutely nowhere near... we've gone a few steps backwards even since the end of last season. We were playing good football when Kenny came in, but since the summer it's been a steady decline.
I have to admit, I am starting to wonder if, in terms of football, the grass is greener on this side. I can't make a compelling case to say that it is to be honest.
Massive mistakes were made in the summer, fair enough. But there's been nothing in the season to suggest that they're recoverable ones. The players have been playing worse as the season's progressed, and the management/coaching team doesn't seem to have driven any positive change either.
Of course, we've won a trophy, which is nice- but it's not really big enough to erase the massive steps back we've taken in the league.
It's been a very sobering month of football when it comes to the league...
