Like us last season we scored goals but couldn’t stop conceding them. We were defensively so naive and that started with tactics. It’s why the manager took so much stick. Now you would think Bielsa should be able to figure that out and the club would finance it, but given how they’ve started they have a lot of work to do. His teams physically burn out and if they keep conceding they will become mentally exhausted by defeats. And teams will scout their best players out of games as the season goes on. I don’t think they’ll go down but I reckon they will have a tough second half.

agree - Bielsa's tactics and approach is great when winning - a few defeats and those players will hit the wall. It's hard to keep working hard when you don't get results.

Winning our first two games would be huge as the fixtures are pretty tough in October.

Fulham were a mess defensively again yesterday so that should be a winnable game although our record at the Cottage is poor in recent times and many of them played in the play off final so mentally won't be afraid of us.

Coming out tomorrow, attacking and defending really well against a well drilled team would be a statement of intent. I have a feeling we'll win 3-1.

Wolves are obviously good but that was a very bad defeat for Sheff Utd last week. We can beat this lot. And we should be very up for it.

Should be looking to finish above Newcastle.

Despite all their signings they've still started Fernandez, Manquillo, Issac Hayden and Andy Carroll today. None of them would get in our first 11. Looks like Saint Maximn will be out for a few weeks aswell injured so their main creative source out.

I am worried again this season to be honest.

We have spent money but most other teams have as well. I think we could do with a top class defensive midfielder. Add this and I think we will be fine.

We’ll finish above all of them. We’ll even finish above teams who aren’t even in our division, like AC Milan and Barcelona.

The current bottom 4 could remain the bottom 4 all season.

Please update!!
The best club in italy by far is Juventus.
Reference  AC Milan doesn't work as they are merely a Europa league qualifying team mixing it with Shamrock Rovers!

Sorry. I shall ensure my ludicrous fatuous comments are more factually accurate in future! :-)

I thought accuracy was key in a role like yours... ;-)
