I don't buy into this 'we surprised the league' last season. You've stated yourself that we only have 'plan a'. When we were playing our preseason friendlies, when we were training etc etc we were playing the same style of football; the only thing that may have changed was the personal. So, unless opposing managers/scouts/teams etc etc weren't checking us out, then how exactly did we surprise them? Especially when we played the same style of football as the majority of all the other teams under Bielsa's tutelage.
Somebody mentioned the other day that he thought the start was more down to a greater level of fitness (coupled in with the improved play of course). I think this better explains the 'surprise' start that we had. And I expect this was also be a big factor at the start of this season too.
