It's been a hugely underwhelming start. Barring Newcastle, every game has been almost painful to watch, and exactly like the worst of last season. There are basic things that aren't being done right, and in my opinion, Yaya isn't a central midfielder, but I'm not a football manager..! I was a Mancini outer, purely due to the fact I didn't believe he got nearly enough out of the squad- just because I was a Mancini outer, though, doesn't mean I have to go to ridiculous lengths to decent everything Pellegrini does. We have looked poor. BUT, it is only 4 games in and that is far too early to judge. We can't rely on Kompany at the moment, with his recent injury record there is no certainty he won't pick up another injury soon. If we are still like this after 10-15 games then it may be time to worry. What originally looked like an ideal opportunity to win the league after early strengthening, and the departure of Ferguson, now looks like one of the hardest years to make the top 4 (for any team) with the buys of Spurs and the potential of Arsenal, given Girouds early scoring form and Ramseys. At a push you could even say Lpool are there or thereabouts, though I am sure they will soon drop off. I still believe with Pellegrini's history of top man management and relative success in the champions league, that it will come good, BUT this has far from been the start I expected.
