The League of this year is NOT the League of last year. The once-in-a-generation opportunity to slingshot yourself to the top through hard work, spit, and polish is no longer available. Kudos to Rainieri and his crew for accomplishing it. Never again let it said it is IMPOSSIBLE, but it also doesn't mean that is the new FLOOR of what a good manager should be able to accomplish. That's loony bin kind of thought.
We are having a NORMAL rebuild/transition season. And as I said before this pitch-shitting, we do not have a roster that's really built for a deep cup run anyway. So, it sucks...but it is what it is, and not really any more than that.
Now...stop dicking around over 1-2m and get our transfer targets in stat. We can't be pissing away points with 7th being all that's left in the season, even as a long shot.
