This was a humiliating loss, there's no doubt about it. We were widely expected to win and really should have given the opportunities that we created for ourselves.
But in fairness, our performance today wasn't that bad.
Save for a few errors, a bit of poor finishing and defending, we could have had that game in the bag.
Given these facts, it's not all doom-and-gloom for the team. If we can work on our defense and our finishing, we really could be a top-drawer team.
It's been these two things that have been our undoing, and they're the reason we've not done so well in some games, one example being Manchester United, where the Blues were arguably the better team. If we had taken those clear-cut, easy chances, we'd have walked away with the three points in this game, as well as many others.
We have the players, the manager, the motivation and the means to be a very successful team, and if a few changes are made tactically, we truly would be on the road to greatness.
