It’s been a really decent season for us. We may not be top of the league this term, but we’re not far off where we were this time last season.
A number of factors have contributed to our current league position, especially the firepower of leaders Manchester City. Regardless, we’re doing okay, and we can’t really complain. It could be worse after all.
The season is nearly half gone, and it’s becoming more glaring the league title may prove elusive this season. We can still win it of course, but it’s a big IF City lose. As mentioned already, they’re flying, and it’s hard to think they’ll lose too many for us to catch up. But even as we keep our hopes up, we must remain realistic and chase championships that are immediately within grasp. The Carabao cup, FA cup and UCL are good examples.
Speaking of the Carabao Cup, action resumes this week, and we’ll be taking on Bournemouth. It’s a very winnable game, but we can’t underestimate them either. It’s usually competitions like this that smaller teams like to flex their muscles against bigger opposition. So we have to be on top of our game. We must totally get over the challenges we encountered in our last game with Southampton. We easily could have scored more, but for our lack of precision in front of goal.
We need the win, and must get it if we want to salvage the season. Until the end of the current season, we are still champions. We can’t end up winning nothing by the end of the campaign. It would be very appalling and poor.
We’re not sure about what the league holds, but we can still stamp our authority in the Carabao Cup, probably become the eventual winners.
