WAYNE ROONEY will score
10 fewer goals than last
season. The reason?
Premier League defenders
will have watched his
dismal displays in the World
Cup and suddenly realized he is not
as unstoppable as they thought.
MANCHESTER UNITED will miss a top-four position for the first time
in decades. Putting aside my usual
detestation of all things United, I
actually believe this.
Based on current squads, I think Liverpool,
Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal
are stronger. And United clearly have
serious financial restraints.
What I don't understand is why Sir Alex is so
keen to support publicly the tightfisted
owners who have wrecked his
TITLE WINNERS? Alas, I can't look further than
Chelsea. Again. They have
the biggest and best squad,
and a team who have tasted
a lot of success in recent
ARSENE WENGER will end his trophy drought. I know, I know, I'm
biased. But I have been very impressed
with the boss's close season activity.
How he thwarted Barcelona and
persuaded Fabregas to stay is
beyond me, but to his credit, he has
done it. And this will be a hugely significant
non-transfer for Arsenal.
He's also chucked out some dead wood at the
back - Gallas, Campbell, Silvestre -
and signed a superb defender in Laurent
Koscielny to partner Vermaelen.
Up front, I like the look of Marouane Chamakh, who is tall,
strong, fast, skilful, good in the air, a
lethal finisher, and looks like
Ronaldo's slightly prettier younger
All we need now is a good goalkeeper, and another central
defender as back-up, and I'm feeling
excited again for the first time in a
few years at the Emirates.
LIVERPOOL will have a very good
season under Roy Hodgson.
Judging by what he did with Fulham's fairly
average squad, imagine what he's
going to do with the likes of Gerrard
TOTTENHAM will have another very good season, but will tragically
fall out of the top four on the very last
day of the season after Jermain
Defoe misses a penalty in the 93rd
I will try to restrain my acute distress at this bitter disappointment
for my north London friends.
As we've seen with Tiger Woods in golf, once the aura of invicibility is shattered, it's shattered. My further prediction is that Rooney will be found gurgling in a gutter with Amy Winehouse, singing 'Rehab' at the top of his voice, as a furious Coleen clubs him with a £10,000 diamond-studded Gucci handbag.
Avishek Roy......you mean to tell me that even after Manu lost the title last year you are still so bitter towards them? Dude you have just revealed to us your bitter, sour envy towards United. Guess what?....we just won the Community Shield, our first silverware of the season.
Hahahahahaha... Lets see at the end of the season u Avishek Roy. I doubt u will ever make a comment without knowin stuff ever in ur life again. Let God be with u, but the DEVILS are gonna reign this season..
Looks like Rooney's confidence is shot, new contract or no. Ashivek's prediction about 10 fewer goals scored by him seems likely. Maybe United dont drop out of the top 4 but I can see them finishing third.
Then again we're only ten games into the season, plenty of time for everything to change.
I'm mostly interested in how Manchester United fans would react on Rooney's behavior after all of this... looking at how Arsenal fans are humiliating themselves cheering their captain who would leave the club 5 times till now if Wenger would let him go, I guess United fans would do the same
