And so it begins at Villa Park tomorrow!
The first two fixtures have offered cause for optimism, and banging your head on the coffee table, in equal measure.
Welcome aboard to James Chester who should form part of the best central pair in the league defensively.
Still much to be done on transfers as we see it. We need a core in the first team not tainted by failures of seasons past. We really hope the last few weeks of the transfer window are productive.
If nothing else, please just win a game tomorrow!
