What a complete and utter nonsense........ For all you Mancs in the south and those few of you north of Watford your forgetting the new Premiership Champions.... Arsenal.....
Wenger learns from his mistakes and won't blow a Christmas lead as we did last year...... A much stronger squad with the younger players more mature.
There is no doubting that we are yo ...[text shortened]... e equation.... You dont need to spend 30 million on a sulk to have strength in depth!!!!!!!!!
Ok dicky, I've not seen United live for nearly 2 years but thats because I've been in America for the last 20 months,
I'm visiting England for 2 weeks in October and will see as many United games (live) as I can when back, which will add to the 350+ I have already seen (live) so please don't include me in the plastic manc count.
Btw, a fan who has seen his team live once has just as valued an opinion as a fan who goes to every game live. I don't buy into the you have to see your team live to have a valid opinion, not these days. In todays world following your team be it on TV or live gives you just the same right to have an opinion.
Yes Wenger is an all time great manager but IMO he puts too much faith in the youngsters and does not buy enough experience.
Maybe this is his choice or maybe he has no choice I don't know.
Can United with the league without Rooney YES.
Can Chelsea win the league without Drogba YES.
Can Arsenal win the league without Adebayor NO.
Can United win the league without Hargreaves and Scholes, YES.
Can Chlesea win the league without Ballack and Essien, YES.
Can Arsenal wn the league without Fabregas, NO.
Vela would be a good buy for any side.
United only bought one player in the summer, he cost 30m+.
His record over the last 2 seasons is top class.
Without him we have won the league 2 years running and have not lost any major players.
So I don't think we "needed to" spend this money on him, we did so to make us a stronger team.
Arsenal have fantastic potenital but thats all it is potenital, take Bentley for example.
Also last season you fell apart when you lost Eduardo, for me you have too many key players that have to stay fit the entire season.
This is Wengers only weakness and I'm not sure why he allows this to happen.
Again its just my opinion, lets see how the season unfolds.
As for the league this season at this early stage very difficult to predict but my biased opinion would be:-
(1) Manchester United
(4) Probably Liverpool but City or Villa could take 4th this season.
