Kippling said that triumph and disaster are the very same thing but he obviously never lost a Cup Semi to Mercedes B. Having said that I think I know what he meant. I am very proud of the way we handled a defeat which was frustrating and bitterly disappointing. One thing we have always done is taken it on the chin whichever way it ends up after 90 minutes. Its one of the many reasons I am so proud to be the Coach of the Whites.
Missed chances were the story of the day and in many ways the story of the season. I guess we can’t be too disappointed not to win anything considering we only won 5 games in the league for the season.
Having said that I thoroughly enjoyed the year because the spirit at our club is fantastic. Several people have stood up this year to be club leaders and for that I am thankful. More on that at Bill’s.
Thanks to all the spectators who came out to watch us. Esp to Bec and Julie who have been there almost every week this year. It was lovely to see little Amelie at her first game.
Big thanks to Armin for all the support he has given me this year. It really felt like we worked as a team and shared the considerable load.
Now onto exciting matters.
