The 2036 – 2037 season for Weymouth FC certainly did not go as expected. In fact, it went about as bad as it possibly could, which was a bit shocking if I’m being honest. If you’ve read the last blog post you already know that we had finished in the top 6, qualified for Champion’s League and strengthened the squad in preparation for the new season. So what happened?
A Horrendous Start
We were looking to have a fantastic start, given it was going to be an incredibly exciting season for our fans and players. I made the decision to keep the tactic we had been using with success the last two seasons and tried to bolster the depth where necessary, so not a lot of changes beyond some signing/transfers.
Our Champions League group wasn’t too bad either! We were placed in a group with Bayern Munich, SL Benfica, and FC Kobenhavn for the group stage, and I felt confident we could ensure 3rd position, maybe 2nd if a few bounces went our way. I was feeling confident and excited for the season to come… I can honestly say I’ve never had a worst start to a season than the one I experienced this season.
