Overall it was mission accomplished in terms of getting back into the Bundesliga, however the success is bittersweet due to missing out on the title on the final day due to the lackluster performance in Dresden. We can't dwell on that now though as we need to focus on ensuring next season will fare better than our last year in the top flight.
Loyalty had been shown to Ujah to lead the line as he was ever-present in the 2.Bundesliga, however is 11 goals a tally worthy of him being our talisman? Abdullahi isn't really the solution and Ingvartsen is heavily injury prone, however we could have passed it on to a youngster such as Ugur Tas despite believing he'd be better suited out wide. Player of the season goes to Arcones despite him missing the last two months of the season, with Andrich picking up second place. I had expected more goals and assists from Kade but he fell short of expectations. Mees and Gogia both did a reasonable job as our first choice inside forwards, but we now have youngsters knocking on the door.
I think I will start the season off with the old guard in the hope we do well enough to be comfortable in mid-table to start bringing the youngsters into the starting 11. However, that could be very wishful thinking.
