So two points so far out of six, not the great start that we all imagined. You could argue that we should have won both games because we tried to win both games. But Reading and Portsmouth both did their job – not lose.
Last season we won our first five games and then lost at home to Arsenal. It was a great start, especially after Chelski’s won their first 12 games the season before. ‘It is important to get off to a good start’ where the gaffers words, and although there can’t be any fingers pointed at the effort put in by some of the players – it is clear that we haven’t got off to another great start.
So come Sunday we have derby day with an edge. Sven Goran Ericksson in charge of his first Manchester derby and at the moment the press are labeling him untouchable. I for one believe that we will win at Eastlands and win well. Ericksson has done well so far with his results but I believe that we have the quality, drive and attitude to over come an inferior side. We may not have done so in our past two games but Citeh will try and play more football and that is the reason that we will win.
