A-M's Resident Jobber
Such a bittersweet season. Unbelievable that we came away empty-handed but in another sense we almost had no right to be competing for the title to begin with, or knockout the reigning European champions. At the start of that season it was thought we'd struggle in terms of top 4 having lost Henry without really replacing him. Few could have predicting the unbelievable performances of Adebayor, Hleb and co that year. The frailties which would come to define the early Emirates era were evident tho. The Eduardo leg break was tough, Gallas' meltdown inexcusable, the lack of depth hurt us when we got injuries and youthness of the squad just didn't know how to cope in the business of the season.
After we beat Blackburn 2-0 at The Emirates in February, I really believed we were gonna do it, probably the last real time I thought we were gonna win the league...shame.
