All in all you have to be pretty frickin happy with our summer and pre-season.
- We have brought in some excellent signings with 2 (Keita & Alisson) and possibly 3 (Fabinho) going right into our starting 11. I would have liked to see one more (and we still may) come in but even still, it has been an impressive transfer window.
- Our pre-season itself has been excellent, we are about to play our 8th game (I think that is more than all of our rivals) so the players have had the best possible preparation with very few injuries. Plus we had very few players away on late WC duty (only Henderson & Firmino were late-late back) so that's a big advantage over some of our rivals.
- Performances in pre-season have been very good with just the one loss (which was fairly unlucky) and moral boosting wins over both Manchester sides. Plus the new signings have all looked the part and got off to encouraging starts. And Danny Studge has even got himself fit and scored 5 goals in the process!!!!
I can't fookin wait for Sunday to get here! Got meself a day booked in the pub and I think this is the most excited I have been gong into a new season since 2006!!!
