City will be favourites, of course they are, their still deemed the best ever team ever ever to have played in the prem , ever, Pep has strengthened bringing that world class CB Aki in, cough cough, they’ve lost their main playmaker Silva, Aguero when fit another yard slower, and the usual suspects will probably underperform again,
I think Chavs may prove to be a bigger threat, if fat Frank can get his egotistical maniacs to sing the same tune, but that could work in our favour too, taking points off rivals, out of all of the supposed top 4 only we have a well oiled machine with little to no disruption, most have new players to bed in/ get used to prem level football,
I see no reason why we can’t continue with our consistency, take each and every game on its merits, the old and trusted ‘One game at a time’ mantra, injuries aside, I cannot see how anything can interrupt our progress, I don’t think we will run away with it like last season but I do believe we will retain and have a more than decent chance of the CL too,
Everyone keeps on about how we haven’t strengthened, all those so called experts on media shows, talkshite, sky, BT, but all that tells me is they don’t fully understand how Jürgen operates, he works with & sees his squad each and everyday, he knows their capabilities and their potential, if he feels he doesn’t need to bring new faces in he won’t, he believes he has what is required already, I know it’s early days yet but I’m liking what Jones, Keita & Minamino have brought to the table so far, the three amigos up front will find their rhythm and be back to their irresistible best before long, our midfield has got stronger, added depth imo, and our defence is looking healthy too, add Tsimikas, Brewster, perhaps Grujic too we have ample cover for those who will need a rest.
All in all I think we will take some stopping, and if anyone does they’ll deserve all they get imo, despite the media’s love affair with Manchester, City in particular they still portray the ‘We hate Liverpool’ vibes, I don’t think that will ever change, even when they heap praise on us, I don’t feel it’s meant, not really, but the funny thing is I think we thrive on it, we love it , having a siege mentality, the ‘Us & them thing it works in our favour at times.
