We started off very strong flirting with the top half but soon started to drop back into lower half and mid table, I often felt we were few weeks of amazing and then few weeks where im wondering if we good enough to stay up. a real mix of a season, I think if Dembele didnt do what he did this season, it would of been a horrid season!
in the end we did improve on last seasons position, but had 1 less points and scored alot and conceeded even more, even though I feel my backline on whole is better and improved.
Losing to the dominant force in England in tht manner is a fantastic result, sort of.
We could not retain the FA Cup, we fell short to a strong Chelsea.
We drew the 90 mins and went on to win 3-1 on pens for another bit of Silverware
Our group on the whole seemed quite open with no real strong force, but I didnt expect to scrape through like I did. A tough reintroduction to europe this was
Come knockout stages we were drew against teams that I felt we could handle even if they are all almost household european teams.We were fortunate to avoid the massive teams which all seem to struggle Juventus lost to Beskitas in the Quarter Finals!
Vs Liverpool at Ibrox in Scotland.
Was a tough ask to beat a side that I am yet to beat in the previous 4 times we have met them so im not upset by getting runners up medals
Dembele was a beast this season. And Munir is the new Ongenda, the Defence side of things could still do with abit of investment
Finacially we are at 41m and have 34m to spend. Which considering we in EPL for second season I feel is rather low. I need to reduce our expenses somehow. 187m went out this season.
71m wages and 42m transfer fees.
So plan for this summer, look out for cheaper improvments and only buy to replace anybody we end up selling.
Anita is leaving on a free so Yedlin might have to step up!
I will be aiming for mid table again.
