Poor end to the season
But after watching a hour v west ham not surprised after a hour switched off

a 1st season to learn more about yourselves and the opposition , a young team so maybe expected too much of themselves onwards and upwards!

Probably lost steam a bit as 1st place is the only one that really matters in this division.

Hopefully will have a better season next year (3rd is still good!)

3rd is what they deserved after losing home and away to Oxford and at home to Southampton. The women and Joe can't complain about a 3rd place finish - they got what they deserved.

If the men's team got promoted and then finished 3rd there wouldn't be too many complaints. On the whole a good season, including an excellent cup run, which may well have had a detrimental effect on the league run-in.

All the team should hold there heads up high. Had a great run in the cup beat some really good teams to get to the match with West Ham. Maybe too many games to win the league. But 3rd place is an achievement as well so we'll done and onwards to next season with more experienced team.

We all wish the men had finished where the woman did so well done in your first season there they will be set up for next season. As a comparison you can hold your head up high within ITFC as you didn't spend money like the men but had a more competitive season overall

Not far off, but need to strengthen with a few more signings to keep the upward momentum going.

Very disappointing end to season, as simple as that.Hopefully the long term injuries get fit and with one or two addition we can challenge again next season.

Mark added 10:57 - May 2
Yes, a disappointing end to the season but overall a it was an excellent campaign. The first at this level. The first with professional players in the team. A very young side. Chasing the title much of the season. A great FA Cup run ending in a Quarter Final. ITFC Women can be proud.

Third place first season after promotion is very good. Champs next season.

To those criticising, really.......
Given where they have come from the last few seasons, the team have made amazing progress. With the Cup run, really put themselves on the map. Yes they seemed to run out of steam at the end of the season but performed superbly.Think if most had been given 3rd at start of the season they would have said would be decent season. They are such a young team so still work in progress, onwards and upwards.
