    IF he says injury free he'll be a good signing. i think he is what we needed though, last year we had two players in rooney and carlos who were pretty much the same and on top of that we had two luxuries in ronaldo and berbatov. a much more balenced side this year i think. still would like to see one more attacking midfielder signed though.

    Anyway the point is this- no matter how big a club and its fans think they are, in the world of football as in most things in life there is always someone bigger, richer and .or more powerfull then you

    who would have thought that man u with all their money (and the 700billion debt!!) and 'power' would unvail a 30y injure pron stricker as their big summer singing!!

    Who did Sir Alex replace David Beckham (7) with?

    Wasn't it an 18 year old one trick pony?

    In Sir Alex we trust.

    I'm always somewhat wistfull when people talk of Micheal Owen (98 world cup), Liverpool had his best years and he was wasted at Newcastle. If he can put the gambling and Horse racing aside and knuckle down he should get Man Yoo some important goals.

    He played 31 games in each of the last 2 seasons for a crap team, which never got very far in the competitions they were in.

    He's not that clapped out.

    Hopefully England can benefit from Rooney and Owen playing up front regularly. (If only Gerrard had actually gone to Chelsea and learned to play with Lampard we would have had a great midfield for the last few years).

    Intresting point that because I've often wondered myself how that might of panned out?..It would of been under Jose's stuwardship and considering the time frame of player manager and only one season would the partnership gelled sufficiently before messers Grant and Scolari had hoved into view?..or would they of hoved into view at all if that had been the case?

    I think it would have been 2 seasons: Liverpool won the champions league in 2005 which kept Gerrard at Liverpool and Mourinho managed Chelsea for all of 05/06 & 06/07. I doubt Jose could have instantly made it work, but they would have sorted it out after a while; i think it would have been vaguely similar to when Ballack came in.

    And undoubtedly this stopped England winning the 2006 World Cup and 2008 European Cup.

    2005: Liverpool come back from 3 down to win the Champions league - a bad day for English football.
