A 5th place finish and European football is definitely a success this year, some perspective on where we were when Alexander took over to where we are now is needed. Our form is still a worry going into the new season. The board took the gamble and for now it has paid off. GA will get his chance to completely overhaul the defence and hopefully bring in a suitable replacement for Watt in the Summer.
The cups this season are hard to judge, getting scudded by Airdrie before being comfortable dispatched by a terrible Dundee side was undoubtedly a failure. However, I feel we were unlucky in the Scottish Cup, the red card 60 seconds into the QTR final with Hibs completely killed us and considering how bad Hibs are this season, what the end result might’ve been if it had stayed 11v11 is a big ‘what if.’
Knocking Aberdeen out the Scottish Cup was definitely the highlight for me.
Time to keep the faith and look forward to European Football in the near future.
