I am more excited than at any time in the previous 20 years about the league. I am hopelessly pessimistic so for me to open a thread means something.
We have a perfect start and for me the real stand out win was of course Spurs away.
West Ham (H)
The only result we improved on from last year in terms of points was Spurs, its the next 6 that will tell us a lot.
I for one still think we are by no means in top gear attacking, it is just the defending and game management that has improved. I dont think we would have 18 points if we have not adjusted those 2 key aspects of our game.
For the next 6 I would take:
Chelsea (A) 1 point would be a decent result, 3 would lead to hysteria I think it will be - 2-2
Man City (H) a win here following Chelsea and I actually think the pressure on us would be a negative..... - 3-1
Huddersfield (A) got to be a win - 3-0
Cardiff (H) 3-0
Arsenal (A) - tough game, but again a draw is not the end of the world - 1-1
Fulham (H) - Tight but again home win - 2-0
so after 12 games we would have 32 points, be unbeaten and still be to top of the league...
Either way major injury aside we should enjoy what Jürgen has put together - a League trophy would be the perfect end to his first chapter of managing LFC
