Don't think it's a question of non believers Isaac, more a case of other teams improving their squads and you lot! lying idle.
We haven’t stayed idle though mate. We’ve signed a new CB in our weakest area last season. We’ve also added Elliott to the first team. People could argue he’s a youngster and yet to prove himself, which is true but the same was said of Greenwood when he was first starting and now look at him, he’s carried the Mancs in the first 3 games this season and that’s with the 70mill addition of Sancho playing too…your best player so far is the academy graduate and one of the worst performing is Sancho (obviously it’s early days for Sancho but his first 3 games haven’t been what people expected).
For our lack of business outside of that, City only signed Grealish…lost their first game.
United signed Sancho for the start of the season and then added Varane and you got battered off the park for the majority of the Wolves game and really should’ve lost that game. Also drew with Saints after falling behind.
In comparison with the 2 Manc teams, we have made the better start and looked the better team.
Arsenal have proven that you can spend however much money you want but it’s not always about signing players. Sancho has been underwhelming so far, Grealish hasn’t really added anything to City that they didn’t already have, Lukaku in the biggest game of their season so far against us was nowhere to be seen.
It’s a long season and it’s more important keeping your players available and fit than it is going out and signing X amount of players. Do I think we should’ve added another forward? Yes. Do I think it will cost us winning the league? Ask me nearer the end of the season.
I’m not saying we are going to win the league because anything can happen. But just remember we finished 3rd last season, literally a few points behind you, beat yous lot and we were top going into the new year. All with a massively injury hit side all season so I wouldn’t be writing us off just yet when we have so many players available now that weren’t last time out, players that were part of the team that saw us win the league at an absolute canter.
