Under our previous manager, we somehow managed to take our foot off the pedal and found ourselves either missing out on the holy grail that is CL or just crept in through a last minute huff and puff and to some degree, because the teams around us couldn't maintain their consistency.
So, here we are for the 4th season in a row find ourselves sitting in that group and with all the issues surrounding the strength in depth, strikers, fatigue and equally importantly, the chasing pack ready to pounce awaiting any slip-ups.
Under the previous regime, concerns were raised re fatigue and the lack of rotation and to a degree, not being able to add that extra quality when it mattered most, namely, the January window. So what is different this time and how better prepared are we to handle the pressure on this home straight?
The obvious differences are that we have a new manager, new tactics, better squad rotation and less said about the striker situation the better! Most of all, I ask have we developed the right mentality, the attributes seen amongst the 'usual top 4 culprits'?
I am not going to mention any statistics as other are more qualified to present those as their argument, i.e., points required, games schedule, injuries, performance of individuals and equally, the approach from AVB.
One thing for sure, you've got be in it to win it!. We have a small cushion over the chasing pack but are we in a better condition and mental/physical state to canter over the line or as is synonymous with Spurs, will it be another nerve racking experience?
Each season we say that the CL qualification is the ultimate objective with a good cup run welcomed along the way. Europa League provides the added challenge/distraction this season. Are we up for it?.......I think so!
Forget the transfer window(! s), forget the striker issue, forget the 1st half of the season. It's how we manage the squad, the mental attitude and how the individuals fight for the cause that will dictate whether this has been a successful season. I am a fan of AVB and I am over awed by his achievement thus far. I believe we have a young, hard working and talented squad who with AVB's management can deliver. Over and out!
