I guess i had to write something to get this going…and the first thing that comes to my mind is the transfers market…gone are the days of Zidane’s huge transfer deals…the biggest is that of Robinho’s to Real Madrid from Santos.
Chelski is shaping up to do a Real in the English premier league by throwing money at anyone who is interested and get them to the club…they got Kezman last year…offloaded him…Drogba’s gonna go soon…they are looking for a new striker…owen doesn’t wanna come there as of yet. Shaun Wright is and will be giving company to Robben…could be the best wingers on either side in the league.
I’m still gonna root for ManUtd and Ronaldo & Park to shine this season. What they lacked was a hard working mid fielder (with age catching up with Keano and Scholes) and Park could be the answer and I’ll stick my head further and say Smithie is a good option…he reminds me a lil’ of Keano with his never say die attitude, sharp and furious tackles (love him when he tackles the defenders…lol) and sprints up and down the field. I prefer Van the man in the goalpost than Howard anyday…hope he comes good!
Liverpool’s shaping up quite a good team with Gerrard staying and Reina, Zenden, Crouch adding to the rosters…but I’m still wary about their defense….not too much bench strength there. But its my bro’s fave team and I’ve rooted for them all the way in the CL last season. So lets hope they put up a good show.
Arsenal may have missed a trick by offloading Viera this season. While Fabregas was improving he needed one more season with Viera to come even close to be a rock like him. The team looks a bit disgruntled from the reports I have been reading. Ashley Cole’s episode would have left a bitter taste in the mouth…Pires has been refused an improved contract this season…Henry looks like the only guy who can pull this team through with Ljungberg looking like a lighter shade of pale with every passing season. If Arsene can get the ‘Beast’ he might beable to solve his midfield problem.
Newcastle’s been like a selling club recently but Scott Parker should bring a good shape to the midfield with Dyer signing an extension to his contract and Jenas improving every season. Their problem is the attack with Shearer not enough to finish in the top 5 at the end of the season.
Everton i admire because of what David Moyes has done with the side (even after Rooney left) and I hope it wasn’t a flash in the pan. CL would be tough with Gravesen moving to Real but Moyes is shopping too. Simon Davies and Kroldrup have been added and Arteta’s move is permanent now after his last season loan from Real Sociedad.
Dunno about the other teams…hope they are more than also rans…would be watching Robbo’s West Brom and Big Sam’s Bolton closely.
