I expect us to get beat quite easily, but we need to be realistic after then we will have played 7 games probably lost 5, 5 of the 7 will have been against teams that finished in the top 6 last season, and we will have 6 points. Most fans at the start of the season where saying if we had 6-7 points after that run of games they would be happy.
A lot of people are putting forward that argument, but, unfortunately, it’s only half the story. It’s not just the results, but it’s how the team are playing and there are plenty of alarm bells ringing at the moment. My biggest concern remains how watertight the defence isn’t. This was a problem the second half of last season, remained one in pre-season and doesn’t seem to have improved much since. Even more worrying is that the defence hasn’t changed since last year (though the midfield has!).
