Super excited me, just got a feeling we could run away with it this year, Pep G putting all his eggs on Haaland scoring the brunt of their goals, leaving them utterly exposed, not back early enough for pre season gives the impression of arrogance and I honestly believe they will suffer, we on the other hand have actually strengthened despite Mane off to Deutchland, Nunez is a fookin beast, Bobby back to his brilliant best, Mo minus the weight off his shoulders looks proper up for it Diaz after his 4 month settling in period is haha settled, within 4 hours and absolutely chomping at the bit,
Wee Harvey a fresh perspective from midfield as well the new lad Carvalho who looks very good indeed, we’re hitting the ground running whereas City are probably two weeks behind in terms of preparation, the six P’s, ……
PROPER PREPARATION PREVENTS PISS POOR PERFORMANCE !!
We seen in that charity bollocks who is better prepared, I think City had 20 mins max control of the whole game, I know it didn’t matter so much but psychologically it may have, I just think we looked sharper, more alert, and well Ready, City were bad, but we made them look bad and way off where you would think Champions should be on the cusp of defending their title !!
Seems crazy to say it, but I think we’ve already got a edge over them, Pep G knows we are a match for his side, but I’m going one better and saying he is actually fearful of us, he alluded to it last year in his ‘pain in the arse’ comment regarding our rivalry, Jürgen would never say anything of the sort and would remain totally respectful of his rival, it may have been tongue in cheek but the correlation is there ?
It will be close again but for me we have the upper hand, we are a better outfit, are run better, have a better squad of players, are more experienced and perhaps more importantly are a well oiled machine ticking over nicely with no gremlins to speak of, and……are Hungrier, we will want it more !!
IMAGINE BEING US !!!
