But, no -- while emotionally the season's served up some true low-points (the 1-6 derby; Europe; Everton at home), it's been far from catastrophic. But given how close we came to winning the league, and the fact that it's the blues profiting from our mistakes, it's only natural there's a bit of hyperbolic dooming & glooming, I think.
