Another tournament, another disappointment. The usual rhetoric of “learning lessons”, “looking in the mirror” and “analyzing where it went wrong” was immediately spouted by a group of players who once again failed to deliver on the big stage. The biggest problem, though, is that we don’t ever seem to learn lessons. Here’s our take on England’s footballing woe.
Having barely finished glugging the champagne after our famous League 2 play-off victory at Wembley two and a half weeks ago, we now know our opponents in the first round of the Carling Cup. The draw was made this morning and the Daggers face a tricky tie away to League 1 rivals (still sounds unbelievable!), MK Dons.
The PFA named its League 2 team of the year way back in April. Needless to say we disagree entirely with several of their selections; some of the choices never really shone against us and other less-renowned players had possibly their best games against ourselves. Here are the best we’ve seen in opposing line-ups over the course of the season.
Way back in August, we gave our predictions and expectations for all of League 2′s twenty-four clubs. Instead of attempting to brush our awful predictions under the carpet, it is time to look back and see how we did, with our first part covering Accrington to Darlington. Part two to follow later this week.
