Man United have made an excellent start to the season. Most seasons they start a bit slowly and then come good as the season progresses. This season however, they’ve come out with all guns blazing. However, with a greater reliance on youngsters this year, there is the intriguing possibility that they may wilt as the season progresses.
In contrast Arsenal have had a shocker and the international break can only help them. The long drawn out transfers of Fabregas and Nasri have clearly sapped morale, and caused many to take their eye off the ball. It would have been much better to have shipped them out at the beginning of the close season to enable them to close the door on the affair and get focussed on the new season.
