Pre-season talk, who are doing what, what is going on, an all PL update

DATE: 02.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Transfer rumours, confirmed moves, players coming and going, games played, training sessions made, all of the PL teams prepare for that first day of the season, we are close to the starting line

City started the pre-season in the best way possible. A draw against West Bromwich and later a competetive game v. Liverpool, despite losing the final of the PL Asian trophy tournament.

There are no excuses for losing football games, but so far the games on english soil has not been in City's favour and only the game v. Luton has ended in a win. Very few goals are scored, since Harry Maguire and Riyad Mahrez are the only goalscorers so far.

Jamie Vardy came close against Wolves, but couldn't convert, and a few other chances ended in nothing. Nothing to see of a pattern and a lot of talk about players coming and going, the Iheanacho signing dragging out, but hopefully soon confirmed.

Other clubs in the PL are also preparing and the results from their games are very mixed. Liverpool looks strong in pre-season and won all their games but one. They could not get more than a draw out of the game v. Wigan, a third level club.

Crystal Palace and Huddersfield are two teams with a mixed pre-season so far. Manchester City looks strong but had to see themselves defeated by neighbour Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho is a man that likes to win and so far in pre-season he has done excactly that, winning. They have won everything but one game against Barcelona, so things looks in route at Old Trafford.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez must be satisfied with his pre-season catch as well. But had to see his team lose against Mainz. Tottenham is also mixed with two wins and two defeats.

Stoke are struggling, looking at heir pre-season results, losing games against German BL2 team St Pauli and Crewe Alexandria. Swansea and West Bromwich also have mixed feelings. Baggies defeats to Slough and Bristol Rovers must be difficult, also just a draw against Port Vale is not scaring anyone.

So looking at the results of other Premier League clubs we see that it's a lot of mixed emotions and difficult to judge, and as said before, the form and type of training done in front of games could be a reason for results. The line-up picked can be, but hopefully City will be more competetive when the season starts.

All the rumours flying around are all gossip, and where it comes from few knows. Shakespeare are preparing a squad for the first game and with the number he has to pick from, we would like to see new additions getting games and doing well.

City are looking for new players, and we believe that one or two can be added to the squad. Iheanacho looks like coming, medical is done and he looks ok. This should be a good signing and the fourth of the summer, talking first team players.

Rumours are that Drinkwater is keen on the idea to join Chelsea, that Mahrez is eager to get a move to one of the six top clubs in England, and as we speak James could be joining West Bromwich. Gray could be joining Bournemouth.

Shakespeare knows that all players are under contract, but as we all know in football everything can be bought if the price is right. The price tag can also be changed depending on a number of criteria's.

From the outside we really don't know who are happy or who are unhappy, but we can read from watching and reading how things are at the moment. Hopefully "heavy legs" is a reason for recent pre-season results and even the fact that the line-ups's playing looks random.

You can if you like watch all highligts from pre-season games at "city-extra". All goals from the Burton game is there.
