It feels to me like we’re one game short of a decent pre season.
Having the transfer window shortened by two weeks isn’t useful especially when we have a new manager. This in turn makes it even more important to get recruitment right as if we realise that we’re still weak in a position due to an incoming player not being as good as we thought then we can’t correct it.
I’m glad Cocu has taken his time over recruitment. The answers for how he wants the team to play could be within the squad. Only he will know that for certain.
