Anyone else not enjoying this because we didn’t make more signings?

    Football is ok and we’re beating a top four rival 3-0.... but I wish we had a few new players.

    Are we going to be seeing these sort of threads every time there is a win/loss?

    This topic will be revisited when we lose to relegation fodder.

    We've been lucky and Chelsea have played really well. The points are ok but I'd rather take away the positives they'll take away from this game instead.

    Well our defensive signings definitely helped us here. Imagine if we played Young today.

    Ha ha. We're gonna lose to villa away 1 nil. We always seem to lose to a team at the bottom, you can set your watch by it.

    Not sure how anyone is watching this and thinking that that midfield looks good enough, but each to their own.

    Especially given the most notable difference between this game and the millions of games we lost last season is two excellent performances from new signings...

    Not anti Scotish, just posted a lot against Moyes.
    If we had signed a midfielder we would have top 4 guaranteed. Score doesnt reflect the game but thats football.

    I enjoy it even more. It is obvious that OGS needs to build a team, with players that want to be here and not mercenaries. Once that is done, signing big names will be easy. SAF always chose characters over talent.

    I'm enjoying the win, nice to start the season like this for some confidence. AWB and Maguire having a excellent game. The result so far doesn't reflect the game though, we're great on counters but we were last season as well. Going to be interesting to see us chasing a goal against a team that's defending, that will tell me how good we really are. I've learned not to get my expectations up.

    A 4-0 win over Chelsea. Six youth players playing. Every debut looks amazing.

    Not perfect though.

    Yeah but in fairness Chelsea are properly terrible. We may well see a wolves/leicester enter the top six.

    Perfection would have been Rashford with a hat trick. I'm nitpicking I know, like I said, this has been very enjoyable.

    I've enjoyed it regardless of MY unhappiness with few signings. I mean. How often do we hammer a bogey side by 4 zip?

    You can tell that they are fighting for the shirt. Some might not be the most technically gifted and sometimes we give the ball away, but they never stopped chasing and pressing.

    If this is what we see the whole season, I'm fine with whatever happens. We finally seem to have a team with players that fight for the shirt and each other.

    These threads are great. Love the reverse Jinx.

    We should start more of them.

    Someone needs to open a thread about how we didn't score 5 because we are so shit in attack.
