Looking at the forum, I'm understandably seeing a lot of questions about passion, character, tactics, personnel. But the truth is we can't always win it. Obviously it's frustrating that it was in our hands and we blew it. But if we'd won it this year, it would have been what, our fifth in six years? That's just ridiculous. As it is we've done phenomenally well to be in touch till the last game of the season, maybe even finish on equal points, all without our best defender, with woeful injuries and against a club with vastly greater resources. We can talk about Wigan and Everton, but we had no right to be where we were, we went on an incredible run, including Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea away and Liverpool at home, to reel them in. All the qualities we're bemoaning were there to be seen. It just wasn't to be...sometimes it isn't.
