So far so good…now is the time to kick on

First, let me say that I do not always agree with Roberto, and I am sure I am not the only one who would appreciate a few home truths in a press conference every once in a while.  I also think that there have been a number of causes for concern over the first 5 games of the season. Anybody who read my last piece will know my thoughts on the Watford game. In my opinion, it was also criminal of Martinez to have left Kevin Mirallas and Gerard Deulofeu warming up on the sidelines while the team on the pitch struggled to get a foothold in the game while 1-0 down against Man City, only to bring Deulofeu on in the 85th minute when the game was all but over, and the defensive performance against Barnsley was somewhat alarming, albeit it was against the back drop of the seemingly never ending John Stones saga. As far as I am concerned, the biggest worry is the fact that we have left ourselves short in the pivotal number 10 role, despite identifying it as a key area that we needed to strengthen at the end of last season. It remains to be seen whether or not Roberto will go back into the market come January, though I suspect a lot will depend on league position etc.
