In the end that went pretty much as expected. This side is way ahead of where they should be (in league position and reaching a cup final). They just don’t have the quality yet. I hoped and dreamed these players could take the silverware because they deserve something for the efforts they’ve put in, and to just ask Steve fucking Bruce what he thought. But unlike 20-odd years ago the feeling is we’ll be back, and with a better squad. So a lot of these players I suspect will be gone when we win something (and the owners careful planning and dedication tells me we will win more than a league cup). I won’t forget their efforts to get us to that position though.
Onwards and upwards. Look forward to beating these lot at Wembley next time. HWTL
