End of Season Roundup

I know that this post comes abit too late and when i intended to do, Man Utd signaled their intention of defending the Premiership title with 3 signings, Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson. No one in the world will expect that fast except Fergie and the directors. What next? A striker?

Rumors have been coming thick and fast with the strikers all over the world linked to Man Utd. Here is a list:
- Javier Saviola (Barcelona, contract end this season)
- Nicolas Anelka (Bolton)
- Klaas Jan Huntelaar (Ajax)
- Afonso Alves (Heerenveen)
- Fernando Torres (Atletico Madrid)

But now no money to spend liao.. How? Sell lah!! Louis Saha, Alan Smith, Gabriel Heinze, Kieran Richardson, Darren Fletcher are all reported to be put on market.

With Giggs and Scholes retiring from international duties, they can focus fully on domestic and European glory once more, i hope. Next season look promising with these 2 stalwarts guide the new young signings and also able to play in more domestic and European matches. I dont want to bet on Giggs for making the most appearances in a club next season.

Next season, look out for Sunderland. Not the one that have the lowest point in the league table 2 seasons ago, neither is the one that have the fewest wins in the top league. In fact, is the other way round.. Since the year start, Sunderland have not lost at home.. The manager is none other than Roy Keane. He is also not afraid of making changes.. He practically changed the line-up for every matches. All his midfielders, young or experienced have scored a goal. Even Dwight Yorke is a midfielder now. He is now interested in Diego Forlorn Forlan, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt. Even Man Utd reserves team, he also interested..

I think Sunderland will do a Reading next season, if not better.. Dark horse indeed!! So dont say i never warn you all..

Next season, there will be some slight changes to the preview.. Jay will explain when the season kicks off.. Till then, good luck for the summer games!!

I see Fergie sticking with Rossi until next year. Saha is out injured so United cant sell him. Smith is gone. Smith wants to start and I am afraid that we just cant give him that. Out of all those players that are linked with United I think that Anelka would do the best job.

Saha should be back for the season but I think he will get injured again.

Anelka is a has-been with ill-disciplinary problem. Something that cannot be tolerated as far as Fergie is concerned.

We are looking to Eidur Gudjojnsen and Fabio Quagliarella instead.
