Bailly out for 4-5 months due to the knee injury.
Getting a quality CB was already a priority before his injury, now it is an absolute must. Cannot go into the season with Lindelof playing alongside either Smalling, Jones or Rojo. Get the Maguire deal done!!

Good wins over Madrid and Bayern at the Audi Cup in Munich. Tanganga continuing to impress this pre season at CB. With Foyth now likely to play at RB the kid could be our 4th choice CB

5-3 over Red Bull Salzburg.

Brace and a assist for Pulisic.

Conceding twice again a worry, but we are scoring plenty which is nice. Still a bit of work to do.

Audi Cup another one to add to the trophy cabinet!

Forget your PLs and CLs, we only win the big trophies. Peace Cup, Barclay's Asia Trophy, Intertoto Cup, International Champions Cup, and now the Audi Cup to add to the collection.

Bayern must have been stunned there’s a club in NL that doesn’t fold like a cheap suit

In fairness, if Jose can claim the Community Shield as a trophy, we can claim this. Actually had to play 2 games...lol

At least I'm not Bobby Madley
Watched the game against Hertha Berlin yesterday on ESPN3, ended up winning 5-3.

Defensively we were a shambles, shows how much we miss Fabianski when he doesn't start.

I think we'll sign Cahill or Aaron Long before the end of the window, Diop and Balbuena are a little underdone, and I wouldn't classify Reid or Ogbonna as PL quality anymore.

Gotta say Haller and Fornals both looked the goods though.

We had our last game against Borussia Monchengladbach. 2-2.

Story of the preseason, couple of mistakes cost goals while we waste far too many chances going forward. Gee their keepers pretty good.

Bring on United
