no surprise here, but 3 of the 5 starters know each other very well, so they are 3/5 there with starters. Bench, different story, pretty much start from scratch, so yep, no surprise they are a work in progress at least until end of November.
A bench (with some talented players) starting from scratch is still better than the catastrophe that was last year's bench.
Still, one of the excuses made by Triano/BC regarding Triano's less than stellar coaching debut last year was that he didn't have a full training camp to work with. Well, he's got one this year and now there's more excuses; chemistry, injuries etc etc.
I agree with Yosemite Dan: only once the excuses stop, will this team start to be successful... IOW, the first month may be a write off because of the free-ride given to the coaches and players.
