6. Have you made enough signings for the new season? Are they the right signings?

No - after promising to keep hold of their star players and add to them this summer, City have in fact sold two excellent defenders and are yet to replace them so the squad is weaker than last season at the time of writing.

Very low given the player sales described above.

Aron Gunnarsson, an Icelandic midfielder who is getting better with every game and goalkeeper Kieren Westwood, voted the best in the Championship last season.

A season of struggle lies ahead. City look short of players and short of goals.
