Tierney, Brown, Ntcham, McGregor, Sinclair, Rogic, Edouard, Demebele & most likely Griffiths and Forrest all start for us. Jack was part of a midfield that was dominated by Brown & Ntcham last season and everyone on this forum has seen Coulibaly play no more than 5 times. Their players have years of performances that we’ve yet to see from our players (because they’ve played about 6 games together this season).
There looks to be a marked improvement from the last couple of dross seasons but there’s barely even been enough games to make any judgment on the players never mind say we suddenly have the best starting XI in the country, the transfer window hasn’t even closed yet!
Hopefully it’s a topic we can revisit in say December and make a strong argument for us having the best squad, but until the first OF at the very least, I don’t see how we can make any such claim. Gerrard has had a great start, proving me and a couple others wrong thus far, and has rightly given a lot of people hope for this season and beyond.
However as you say mate, hindsight can be a cunt, so I think it’s best for everyone to keep the expectations at least publicly subdued because although we’ve started well, we could just as easily find ourselves reflecting on another poor season in May.
