Top 2 this season

Postby trotskie » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:50 pm

I know it's only 6 games in but for me I've seen enough to say it's between us, Leeds, Wolves, Middleborough, Derby and Fulham.

Advantages we have over them.

1/ Neil Warnock​

2/ Zohore yet to hit form. When he does we could blow teams away

3/ Patterson. When he is fully fit he will add another dimension to our game going forward. Will be like a new signing outside the transfer window.

4/ Our first 11 is as good as anybody's in this league. I'd say the best in the league when Zohore is on form.

5/ Our strength in depth. Say for arguments sake our first 11 when all are fit is Ethridge, Patterson, Bamba, Morrison, Bennet, Hoilett, Ralls, Damour, Gunnarson, NML, Zahore.
We then have Camp, Murphy, Manga, Richards, Tomlin, Peltier, Ward, Harris, Pilkington, Feeney, Bryson, Connelly, Healey.

6/ Our team spirit and togetherness.

7/ Rich owner. Tan is not silly if we are near the top in January he will give Neil what he wants.

I'm sure people can add more stuff to the list but the point I am making is other teams should fear us more than us fearing them this season. There are only 5 other teams even close to us.

Opinions? Am I too optimistic

A great start but think its too early to say for me - look at where we were after 10 games last season and where we finished. Someone like Villa, Norwich, Sunderland could go on that sort of run, but I do believe we will be there or thereabouts come May.
