Where It All Went Wrong!

Where It All Went Wrong!

As we survey the wreckage of what has been a season that`ll go down in the history books as one we`ll remember for all the wrong reasons, Felix Magath believes that the month of January should figure prominently.

It was the month when the realisation hit home that we were destined for a relegation struggle and a month in which Rene Meulensteen chose to bolster the squad.

Numerous players arrived in January, players such as:-

• Kostas Mitroglou
• Lewis Holtby
• Johnny Heitinga
• Ryan Tunnicliffe
• Larnell Cole
• William Kvist
• Clint Dempsey

Several of which have made little or no worthy contribution to ensuring we maintained our status as a Premier League club.

Magath, speaking about the mess he inherited, had this to say,

"The biggest problem we had was the decision to bring in seven or eight new players in January."

"The situation was already difficult and then you had foreign players, young players coming in."

"That was on top of a new owner, then two managers this season. It was all too much for the club - and I knew when I came here it would be a problem."


Can we bounce straight back from the catastrophe of this season, that remains to be seen!

All we really need to do is look at the WBA games. Both games we allowed them to tie in the final 90. Take away the 2 points they earned in those games. The go into the final game with 34pts. Give us the 4 points we should have kept. We go into the final game with 35pts. Teams that survive find ways to win. We didn't. We lost just way too many games in the final minutes this season. How many points did we let just slip through our hands?
