After David Moyes then anything would have been considered an improvement! No, we were a mess. Like when Van Gaal first came to the club and said that the whole squad was unbalanced and he was dead right. We've still got about 5 players whose ideal role is to play as a number 10. I think Van Gaal has done a great job personally as he's trying to impose a whole new style on United whilst also fighting numerous fires behind the scenes. The Spanish players were rebelling against him at one stage but the re-signing of De Gea seems to have appeased them for now. I know some United fans think our new style is boring but if they just give it time they'll see that we'll actually be a much better side for keeping the ball and not just aimlessly banging it forward. The problem is that

Alexis Sanchez always has an eye for a goal, and a knack of arriving in the right place at the right time. Santi Cazorla usually plays well against us, and Theo Walcott's pace will be tough to defend against. Having said that, both teams will probably put out reserves and none of the above will feature. If we are mentally in the right place I don’t fear any of your players. Giroud occasionally scores against us, Ozil has the potential to do something other than disappearing, but honestly the days of fearing Henry, Pires, Ljunberg and co have long gone. You aren’t a scary team anymore which can be seen in how defensively you tried to set up against us last year, and how you played vs Chelsea when you had 11 men on Saturday

Signing four high quality players for almost £50m was not what Newcastle fans were expecting this summer. A few more additions would be nice but I'm very happy personally. Gini Wijnaldum in particular is a fantastic player and Newcastle did brilliantly to get him.

We can, but who we’re going to finish above is the more difficult question. I’ve been really surprised by how well Manchester City have started; to be honest I was looking at them as someone we could perhaps topple but they look pretty unstoppable at the moment and are rightly favourites to win the league now. You guys always make it, and I think you’ll be there or thereabouts in the title race. You fancy Manchester United to improve, particularly if they can bring in a couple of marquee players, and Chelsea are bound to get better, too. If I had to choose one, I’d say United are the ones to target. We just need to come out of this tough early run of fixtures still in the mix and then who knows what could happen.

Very happy as it shows both the ambition of the club and owners but also that we don’t just want to be a bottom half team happy to be in this league. It says a lot for Pardew too. Cabaye was fairly quiet against Norwich but showed the expected touches of class and the speed of thought to do things that the other players will take time to get used to. He took his goal extremely well with time to look up and beat the keeper, the quality of the through ball from the under rated James McArthur should also be mentioned. The  Frenchman adds to the positive, attacking intent of the team and I think we’ll score far more goals this season as a result. I believe we could see many games with lots of goals, both for and against

Above all else, he’s just taken the reigns off the squad. Villa were dull, negative, and just looking to hold possession (though doing nothing with it) under Paul Lambert, and he’s completely flipped that around, which was exactly what the club needed; there’s not a lack of attacking talent here. He also brought Jack Grealish properly into the first team, which has been huge.

Our main threat of course is Saido Berahino. Whilst his goal tally is impressive there is much more to his game than just scoring. He can hold the ball up well and his link-up play is also good. It's easy to see why the country's top clubs are 'sniffing' around him. Callum Mcmanaman, if he features, is also capable of causing problems for most teams. We haven't seen a great deal of him since his move from Wigan but in the glimpses we have seen of him he looks to possess pace, skill and trickery, a nightmare for opposition defenders.
