Why lose faith?
I know it is hard to believe that we can come good and maintain our push towards the Champions league when watching an embarrassing display at the City of Manchester stadium against a team which has been, for much of the season, average. However, my fellow Villan's, we have endured our worst run in the league this season, and guess what!? We're still holding the fort of the Champions league, even if it is now by only 3 points!
All the doom and gloom of the past week is all a bit silly, considering where we are presently sitting, and our expectations at the beginning of the season! If someone had said to me that we would be 3 points BEHIND Arsenal at this point of the season I would have literally bitten off their arm, AND THEN SOME!! This season, regardless of the next 10 games has been a success!
Sure, if we drop away and finish 5th I will be disappointed, and if we finish 6th or 7th I will be GUTTED, but this season regardless of the ending to it, we have shown that we can mix it with the big boys, and have gained a lot of respect from other fans for our bravery and at times our football. We have given ourselves a platform for the coming season to challenge the top of the league, to break the 'top 4' this season, even with other teams failing, was always going too be a huge ask, and so far we've pretty much answered most the questions, and that is something I find extremely encouraging!
Now I know that the last 2 weeks have been very hard, especially in a season where we have been a little bit spoilt, but we can, and hopefully will bounce back after the players holiday and go on to stake our claim amongst the great players and teams in the Champions League next season!
So lets cheer the boys on, otherwise we may be forced to endure another match thrown in the Europa League!! :D
