Litsening to the pundits, reading the newspapers, bloggers and at times even the Cafe you would think we're in shambles. I'm no tactical genius, nor do I see what the problems are at times. I know I've been frustrated at the poor, boring football we've played many times this season but then I got thinking, If we are as poor as the pundits, media etc say. If our players are as poor as some say. How come we're second in the league, still in the CL and the FA cup with less than a 1/4 of a season to go? OK we've been saved by De Gea at times but not as much as in the past, we haven't had a single player performing like mad the whole season but a couple in shorter patches. So if this us being bad with bad players, how good will we be if / when it all comes together? I think we've set our minds to failure and don't dare to hope anymore like we did in the last seasons after SAF, it simply hurts less to expect nothing. But it's impossible to just be lucky a whole season, right?
