They seem like a strong team who can mix scrappy wins with smashing teams now and again, it'll make for some great top table clashes at least!

Yes they seem to be able to grind games out with an abundance of spirit and ability.

Hope I’m wrong of course 🙏

what's the crack with Girona? 

only lost once to Madrid, 2nd I'm the league, back top if they win at Barca tomorrow 

Built a decent team with the Man City links and some good loans.  
 

It’s a small village town in Catalonia. They’ve done incredibly well.  Old they keep going? Can’t see why not. They’ll be no challenge for Real from Atleti or Barca this season

If villa hold out here, it will be 15 home league games on the bounce 

That's some going. Fairplay 

I was wrong about Emery, I had judged him on his poor spell at Arsenal rather than elsewhere, but he's doing an unbelievable.  15 home wins on the spin including City and Arsenal is incredible.

In one way its hard to see them sustaining a title challenge, in another way the others all look vulnerable, Arsenal over-rated IMO because they concede too easily and have an average keeper and defence.  Liverpool look uninspired and riding their luck with late winners, flat performances and some luck, City unusually weak compared to previous years, at least till De Bruyne returns and Haaland gets back on form. 

It makes it interesting, but the standard at the top looks to be a notch down from previous seasons.

Winning 15 on the bounce then saying standards look to be notch down seems a bit disingenuous to me.

Good to see different teams in the mix. They currently deserve their place at the top table. For how long who knows.

Emery has won so much in his career it seems mad he was ever written off.

Population of Girona, 100,000. At bit more than a small village town.??

Well small town with a whiff of drama added by myself😂

That said the guy who calculated defeats expectations on town sizes still wouldn’t be happy.
