Our recent web poll probably tells Psycho and the City Board something they already know. Basically, City's paper thin squad is the main reason for yet another disappointing season. We asked you and the response was:
Where did City's season go wrong?
Squad simply not good enough: 75%
Key players not performing: 16%
Just unlucky with injuries: 5%
Bad tactics: 2%
Dodgy team selections: 2%
The second half of the season has been particularly depressing given the early promise with some great performances and results; the derby being the obvious highlight. However, since the Wigan home game it's all fallen apart leaving us fans wondering quite what is going to stem the flow.
Although last night's performance against the Gooners showed a lot of spirit, our frailty in front of goal was badly exposed. The difference between the likes of Arsenal and City was summed up by the respective benches.
Keeping the Arsenal bench warm last night included the likes of Fabregas, Pires & Reyes. With respect to our own lads, our response was Flood, Croft and BWP; the contrast could not be starker.
So where now? A summer clear out looks innevitable with some new and possibly old faces arriving for next season. But is the answer as simple as having a few million quid to splash out, or is there a bigger problem at the club? I haven't got the answer, but I just have a feeling things are not all ok behind the scenes and there may be more difficult times ahead. Of course I'd love to be wrong, but this is City after all !
