i know there's a few.
What's your view on the close-season & thoughts on next season?
Personally, i'm keeping an eye on the odds for a "No Trophies" bet.
I know 1 man doesn't make a team, but when Ronaldo wasn't playing last season, we weren't scoring really. Even though he only put in about 75% effort (or seemingly).
Nobody, probably not even Rooney, puts in as much effort up front as Tevez & he's gone also.
As the so called biggest club in the world, we seem to be Real Madrid's bitch in recent years.
I'll let Owen's performances do the talking before i pass judgement on him as it could go either way really.
Valencia imo isn't a replacement for Ronaldo or Tevez.
We've failed to bring in someone "big", when other clubs are doing just that.
There's those who say "sod Ronaldo, better off without him". I'm not so convinced. I think it's more like false hope.
Anyway, i think we'll possibly make the 1/4s of the Euros, i think we'll be 2nd in the league at best & our best hope of silverware is going to be one of the cups - fa/carling.
Pessimist maybe, but if at the end of the season i've been proved right, then i'll have been a realist.
what's your take?
