I`m sure I don`t just echo our fans when I say that I cannot believe we`ve lost that game last night and the tie overall.
I just cannot fathom it at all. Most of the first leg we were the better team and then, for large swathes of yesterday, we had the edge too so how can we be out of the competition?
It baffles me that we let this go because that Juventus side is not as strong as it was, and they knew that they were up against it, but we let them off the hook.
What now, then? Well, we by no means need to rip things up and start again – we`ve still got a brilliant young side full of potential but, with that said, we need more experience.
You look at our team and despite the seasoned internationals and top players that featured last night, there wasn`t many that had ventured far in the competition.
Then you look at Juve and they had massively experienced professionals at this level who knew exactly how to get through, despite not playing too well.
We`ll say it`s a learning curve, of course, but we`ve been here before and it worries me we`re not actually picking up any pointers.
Poch can change that in the summer though by going for a handful of top players at European level that have seen it all before.
Think Rafa Van Der Vaart when we signed him and what a leader he was, players like him could be a massive difference now because our team is much better.
The gaffer will always prefer going after young players but, for me, it`s time to tweak his transfer approach.
Agree with me? Should Poch go after more experience or keep looking at young players? Let me know!
