    Thought Shaktar were a good team. The match showed that CL is definitely a step up. Pity about Mendy. He has added an important extra dimension. I fear he may be out for months.
    KDB has been excellent so far. I like the look of Bernardo and what a difference a proper goalie makes.
    Sterling has been good too. Chelsea will be our first real test

    Second string against West Brom?
    Bravo
    Kompany, Mangala, Tosin
    Rest? Not sure
    He might play Delph, Foden, Gundogan, Sane, Sterling
    One half each Aguero, Jesus

    Any thoughts

    Excellent first half.
    Lets hope for an equal performance at Watford.

    It was very much a training match with little intensity. My only and real concern is that without Aguero/Silva/KDB we never look like scoring. Pep knows this hence Sanchez

    We dont need three at the back. Should go 442 and bring on Sane or Sterling.
    So midfield 4 Silva KDB Ferna and Sane

    Not looked like scoring. Weve had nearly 8o% of possession. 2 mins to HT . Just nothing really to shout about.

    I wonder if Arsenal want to lose £50m. Who knows.
    What I would say is tney might if tbey add more and buy a top player who is younger.
    This could well go to the final day.

    Amz. And thats why Wenger and Arsenal would rather lose £50m than let him go. In the same way Aguero is just not for sale.

    For me its the Premier League and at least last 8 of CL. It will be tough as there are 6 teams perfectly capable of winning the league.
    From the clubs perspective I think winning the league will be tne barometer. Last year we finished 3rd and we were not that good. Imagine if we had had a proper keeper. So thats my expectation!

    Expectations. Too high or realistic?

    No
    We need CB cover, fullback cover , striker and holding midfield.
    Clearly not possible.
    We also need some decent sales to offset the purchases

    Good performance. Ederson looks like a proper keeper. Could easily have been 4 or 5.
    Need to be more clinical.
    Walker injury. Hope its not serious. Danilo looks a decent buy. I notice we are being”watched” re FFP. What about watching Utd with their ever increasing debt and £36m profit -compare us no debt and £20m profit. The hand of Gill again I think.

    Apparently he has an injury and may miss the start of the season?
    Anybody know any more?

    All in favour of a big strong defender. Agreed £60m doesnt seem so mad if you compare with Walker/Mendy. But I think he wants to go to Liverpool and I’m not sure Pep fancies him that much either?

    Finally we now have three fullbacks signed. Plus a new keeper.
    We have another very good midfielder – Bernardo Silva.
    Team?
    Ederson Bravo
    Walker, Kompany, Otemendi(Stones) Mendi,Tosin,Roberts
    Silva(Sterling) KDB, Fernandinho(Gundogan) Yaya, Silva, Sane
    Aguero, Jesus

    Possibly a little light up front? (Injuries/suspensions etc)

    Dr ian as last season proved you need good back up we need 4 CBs in the squad. I would therefore keep Tosin but play him. Bring him on as sub for VK if things are going well in a game. Play him in the cup matches etc.

    Perhaps though there may be another signing?
