Watching Everton's movement right now vs Southampton you can see that they are a few very signings ahead of us. And that over the course of ther season will apply to a number of sides who over a number of years have been buying just overall better players. I think as superb as our start has been it's inevitable we will fall back into mid table. We need to find a way to overcome defeats quickly, turn losing positions into points, maintain winning positions are at minimum not lose all 3. Things that we triggled to do last season. That would be progress. And then next summer build with 2 or 3 more Barkley level players, maybe even one Jack level to just improve the first XI and strengthen/deepen the options off the bench. So for me after 5 games I can see us finishing worst 11th, at best 7th, so I'll go for 9th this season.

Even a squad stacked like Everton struggles when they get injuries, the young kid at RB has been mullered this half with Coleman out.

I think Leeds will slip back as they usually do in the second half of the season. But going forward they also will become stronger and deeper and buy players for the entire campaign that allow them to keep their energy level high and maintain that style. And they need to keep Bielsa obviously who I can see ending up at Barcelona. I reckon they will finish just behind us.

No doubt. That why I think the much deeper squads will prevail. What is also very different this season is just how compressed and taxing cup competitions will be especially for those in Europe. Even the big squads will be tested so it might allow for a more even league campaign or as we have seen a number of very unlikely results every week.
