Thankfully, we are in the middle of an excellent World Cup which will dampen a lot of that silly speculation.

Should we be worried by the seemingly tough sked to start the season? Maybe, but it is worth noting that City beat good teams, and bad teams consistently. We beat those teams both home and away.
I see nothing to worry about here. A good start is preferable, but it is not crucial as we saw in the way Man City won the title in 13/14.
