    Agreed. It’s all looking very encouraging. I’m quite looking forward to this season.
    We just need to keep our heads if we get off to a poor start.

    I agree Anon3 we have a hard start and if we get nout from first 3 game, it will not be a total surprise, we the fans need to keep with the team not on their backs 🙂 UTV

    Good summary of how we stand. I get the feeling that Okore has come in to be first choice CB. As far as first three matches go, if we get anything from Arsenal and Chelsea it’s a bonus, but I really think we will take Liverpool. Can’t wait for Saturday. UTV.

    good post
    i said b4 and i say again, we are stronger and fitter than last season, new addition’s will give us more cutting edge ~ yes we shouldn’t go overboard and yes first few games are tough but hey thats why we pulled 2gether 2 fight 4 last year. ENJOY

    Good post, although Im not sure I agree that Baker/Vlaar is the best partnership. Okore has barely played a game pre-season. Im pretty sure that Okore will be first choice with Vlaar (or Baker if Vlaar doesnt perform)

    Really optimistic about this year, no reason we shouldnt finish in the top 10 if not higher. Kiyotake looks like he would be a great addition to the team…fingers crossed that happens. That is the one real position that we need to strengthen.

    The only annoying thing is that we could play really well in the first 3 games and only come away with 1 or 2 points. Toughest start I can ever remember!!

    So Rotherham at home in the League Cup. The team we beat to win the first League Cup final. Is it an omen?

    could be an omen rotterdam82, im seeing the similarity between this seasons kit and that of the 80-82 years as a positive omen too.
    the best thing we’ve got going for us is that after last season we’ve got a load of young players who’ve had more prem experience in one season than most their age would get in 2 or 3 seasons, nothing should scare them after last year even starting the season with arsenal and Chelsea away, not to mention Liverpool at home.
