When Sir Alex brought Owen to United, surely every United fan must have thought that the boss was not done yet...he went on to sign a little known French kid, Gabriel Obertan, and you can bet that nobody expected Fergie to stop there. The press went ahead to link all sorts of players to United and even today the likes of Douglas Costa are still being rumoured to come to OT, but after presenting the trio of new signings at the club today, Sir Alex has confirmed that United will not be signing anyone else. We still have over a month left in the transfer window but United fans must start picturing a campaign with the current crop of players.
My opinion: Manchester United will be significantly weaker next season especially if they retain the same system but we cannot say that our rivals will be much stronger. There is a big chance that the many of the players will be liberated by the departure of Ronaldo and that we might benefit from having a predator in the box for the first time since the days of RVN. Michael Owen has a lot to prove and that could work heavily in our favour. We might just be as prolific as we were last season so there is no point in writing off United just yet. Trust Fergie to maintain the pride of United!
The boss also spoke about the transfer fees that sky rocketed this summer. I must admit, when in a hundred years Historians and are studying about the current economic recession, it will not go unnoticed that football was not affected. There was considerable pressure on Ferguson to bring in a big-name player after the departure of Ronaldo but I was against it if it was for the sake of spending the 80m we got from Madrid. The gaffer has said that we'll not waste the money and I'm fully behind him--wait till the prices are reasonable and then get more bargains. We've hardly touched that money and I hope that some can even finance our debt.
Lastly but not least, Tevez is a Bitter! He looks bitter alright!
