Pepe going to Arsenal.
Bruno going to Utd.
Clubs strengthening around us, and we seem to sit tight, happy with our lot. We're European champions after all.
And like a lot of the fan base I started to feel a little anxiety. We've been here before. We need cover for X, Y and Z. We need a big signing to push our lads on, etc etc.
But when you look at it harder, I start to feel more calm.
Minus City, every other rival needed strengthening, badly. Arsenal where a shambles last year, and are still going into the season with Mustafi and Koscielny on strike.
Utd still have Jones, Smalling, De Gea on the decline, and an over rated striker (Rashford) and a useless one (Lukaku)
Chelsea have lost their most influential player of the past 5 years minimum, with no re reinforcements
Spurs have strengthened, but not in areas where they actually need (Kane then who?)
We have lost no one. We are a year together stronger. We have players back after a year out. Players who want to prove. Young players exciting enough to be compared to God himself.
I'm optimistic, and now after thinking hard, not worried.
I'm ready for battle.
