I'm worried that our flying start was an aberration and that we're now regressing back to the style of football we saw last season. The main reason for optimism is that we've still got players lie Pogba, Ibra, and Rojo to return from injury -- the latter looked like he could be a starting CB last season, and the other two are obviously magic winners most days. I don't think you could rule out signing someone like Ozil on the cheap in January either. City might run away with the PL by then, but we could have strong second half of the season and a good run in the champos.
My main fear is that we only looked gangbusters because we had an aggressive fitness program in the summer. We're a physical team already -- big lads who are strong but also quick -- but we also look fitter in the first few weeks of the season. We racked up goals in the last ten minutes. But now that everyone else is back in peak fitness and we're carrying a few injuries and looking a bit leggy, the lack of sophistication and ambition in our attacking play is really glaring.
