Going to the Bournemouth game and I fully expect us to get battered, but hopefully win it with a moment of magic from someone.

Its Koeman's team, and it will take us several years before we are in a position to win the league.
I can see the transition argument to a certain extent, but I figured part of the reason to get the new signings in early was so they could gel during the preseason and the Europa League qualifiers. We look very lost out there, pretty much all over the pitch to be honest.

Winning the league? I would at the moment be more than happy with a 7th spot in the league for this season. After that, well, we'll see but Koeman might very well bugger off before too long based on his track record.
Are we missing Barkley as much as Big Luke?

Simply put - No!

I think Barks has been overly maligned over his performances. So many times he drew opponents into him, laid it off and created space for others. Occasionally he'd make the wrong choice, but I'm seeing wrong choices being made all over the pitch right now. We can't blame a lack of Lukaku every time, because we're not even getting the ball forward. No one seems capable or willing to carry the ball effectively. What's happening in midfield is mystifying. No space being created, no support for either FB. Schnide seems no faster than Barry, and Kane's second goal was woeful defending. I can't figure out where Koeman is taking this team, and what tactics we're going to see.

with our current midfield dynamo supposedly being Klaasen (who looks very very average) I think we are missing Barks... or even more so Barry / Macca
