Here we go again, I can understand people getting excited for the forthcoming season; however, speculating about europe and how much the Newcastle supporters are worried about how good we will be next season and how poor they will be.
Meanwhile Newcastle are going about there business very quietly, yet seem to have signed some decent types and have a couple of long term injuries returning, personally I think we should just enjoy what we have without claiming bragging rights until we achieve something, after all apart from a couple of Man Utd players who are approaching the twilight of their careers and may be injury prone and a young striker who hasnt proven himself at this level but has plenty of potential our signings are at best at the moment mediocre.
Now call me pesemistic, however, I have watched Sunderland for a long time now and have seen players come and go, I agree that what we are seeing at the moment is a massive step change in the way that we have done business in the past, but it is also a massive change in the squad structure, which could go one of two ways lets hope my glass is half full by the end of the season and that our new signings click from day one.
Finally lets stop worrying about what our friends up the road are worrying about or doing in the transfer market, I have said before we are now a club that is bigger than a couple of Derby wins and i will take losing both Derby games for a place in europe.
Heres to a cracking season and hope all of the hype is worthwhile, thank you Niall Quinn and Ellis Short for your input, lets hope Steve Bruce has the ability to pick a team that is tactically right for every game an dnot just his best 11
