Come on, hands up all those who last season thought that this was a banana skin? Right, hands up all those who think, we have a chance to win it this season? Yep me too. I just keep thinking to myself is it true do we really have a team that plays attractive entertaining football, pleasing on the eye and is bound to get better the more they play. only 8 more games before they really get used to each other.
