We ran out of gas at the end of the season. If you watched the games you understand this. Not going to go back and forth on it.
Disagree. We played some incredible high intensity games back end of last season.....finished the season very strongly domestically, that performance v City at Wembley last April and even the CL final we were much much the better side. Community Shield game we beat City again and beat them well.
We knew some of our players (especially in midfield) were ageing and we thus we called for the need of at least 1 midfielder....but you're lying to yourself if you knew this fall was coming.
For me it wasn't until the Napoli game where I thought ok we're in a really tough long season ahead.
