We need to be realistic. Since we got back into the top league we’d have lost a game like that today and been out the Cup. We’d also have been miles off the top of the table in the league.
We've made huge huge strides this year both domestically and in Europe and it was probably unrealistic to expect the Manager to win the league in his first season but if we can match the progress from last season into next season, we’ve every right to be optimistic.
We definitely need at least 3-4 new players to strengthen the first team rather than just the squad, but we need to have faith in the Club to identify the right people to bring them in.
Having said all that, we’re still in the Cup and have an outside chance of the league so as Big Marvin says, keep believing!
