Sounds like (and this is a good thing) that PC has been working them very hard in pre-season. Some of the results have been down to doing a full week of hard training then straight into the game. As we get closer to the season, I'm sure the intensity of the training will ease off a little so they can properly prepare for each match
Yep, the only game so far that they didn't have intense training beforehand was Fulham, where they acquitted themselves reasonably well.
Game against Besiktas this afternoon follows on from a morning training session, so again, would imagine there'll be heavy legs out there. This season, these pre-season games seem to be an extension of training, trying out the new formations/tactics in a match situation.
