I wouldn't disagree with that Risso. Though I hope you're fucking wrong about Sheff Utd.

He hasn't been at the last couple of home matches, from what I could see.  Hopefully he's scouring the world for a decent forward.

He's in a monastery doing penance for his involvement in the signing of Wesley.

I think we'll do ok against them but it's a hard one to call a result for.

I think we'll beat Southampton and Norwich, they're both quite open (like us) and we have the attacking players to take advantage of that. Watford are harder to judge because whilst they're really shit the team on paper doesn't look all that bad, I think we'll beat them though.

I'm up for a couple beforehand but have to shoot off somewhere else after. Plenty of places to have a decent beer.

I think we'll struggle to get anything away at Sheffield United.  They're playing well and have a better manager, and a well organised squad.  After that, we should beat Southampton and Norwich, but don't think Watford will be a walk in the park.  I can see a loss against Sheffield, draw against Southampton, win against Norwich and draw against Watford.
Agreed. Can’t see us getting anything at Sheffield Utd either, but we need to be turning over Norwich, Southampton and Watford.

Pitarch had better be out there working on some truly magical deals.  The man responsible for going into this season with an attack that's not fit for purpose and a defence that's conceding two goals a game on average should be clocking up some airmiles and sweating his arse off trying to put things right.

For all we know, he possibly is. Maybe we have deals lined up, we just don't know. Let's hope so anyway.

If, as you say in the Smith thread, he's not been at the last few games then you'd imagine that's exactly what he's doing.

Not having 20 points by mid season would be really poor and that's looking pretty likely. Even if we rally and beat Norwich I don't think we've got the grit to dig out draws at Watford or Burnley.

Second half of the season we're simply going to have to beat a couple of the better sides at Villa Park. We've used up many of the winnable home games already.

No, the bastard didn't show.

Having said that we didn't actually arrange to meet.

Just what does this bloke actually do?
Isn't research and recruitment his domain. It is 4 & a half months since the last transfer window closed. Time enough for scouting and getting potential deals lined up for the 1st January.

Yet here we are a week in and if today's news is correct then the deeply flawed Drinkwater will be the first recruit. Taking up 1 of 2 loans allowed.
Indeed this proposed deal smacks of desperation.

Where are the 2 strikers that are an urgent priority.

If Drinkwater is the best he can do then he needs sacking with immediately effect!
