There is no doubt that if the likes of Tiote and Cabaye bounce back to their best then the team overall can also do the same. However, we have to acknowledge that without major incoming signings we’ll be in for another struggle if loss of form and/or injury strike again.
Plus to every impressive performance comes a horror show. Last season wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Some of us like to forget when our club gets absolutely hammered or puts in a shameful performance never to be spoken of ever again.
