I’m always quite optimistic at the prospect of a new season, a fresh start and all that. Unfortunately I’ve been disappointed more years than not. My expectations aren’t that high generally but even then we often still fall short of what I would expect.
This season I am confident due to Pearson, at last I think we have a Manager on par or better than other Championship clubs. I am not confident we have enough goal scorers throughout. Diedhiou hasn’t been replaced, we will miss his goals and his defensive work. He certainly had his faults, but he did make a contribution.
We seem to have shored up the midfield and defence if all can stay injury free. Weimann returning along with Martin is good news but I still think we are a player or two down. Hopefully this will be solved before the window shuts and we will have a better measure of confidence then.
