Early signs of it, yes, definitely.

Our younger players could flourish.

Sancho very bright. Martial again looking decent. Backbone exposed by the high line first half with Shaw, Lindelof and Maguire all caught out for their call.

But with the ball we're trying the right things, and without the ball there's one intensity and more coordinated press.

Plenty of room for improvement and we're limited by McFred in midfield as well as the lack of pace at the back. Zidane looks like he has something.

Positive early signs I'd say.

And what I would say is, the body language looks better and you can see a more obvious gravitas about Hag, and a respect from the players. I like what they're saying too - a sense of 'this is hard work, but it's what we've wanted and been lacking'.

We still need 2 or 3 quality players bring in this summer though.
Sounding good. Thanks for the run down. I'm gonna try and catch one of the games cos what people are saying is quite exciting.
