The only major dissapointment is the manner we got beat on national tv...
People we're getting way to ahead of themselves in this cup thing.
See this is where I disagree. I think if anything its the opposite and we underestimate our own ability.
The league table doesn't lie. We had a shocking start to the season with a different manager, and are still (Just) above Everton in the league. Went it to tonights match with home advantage and I would say on balance less injury problems then them.
You will never eat at the top table if you consider yourself below that. We had no reason to go in to tonight not expecting to beat them. But there was that malaise around the club. Even there fans were confident.
I dont think its arrogance, to the contrary I think its not having belief in our ability.
