Last years top 5 transfer dealings.
United seem to have paid 18 million for Michael Carwreck. I point out that Arsenal didn’t want him for a third of the price 2 years ago. Still its a start and United have paid that 'United Tax'. If they can get Senna for 5 million then United fans have a reason to care about the season - do they stick with Rossi/Smith/Solskjaer as back up to Rooney/Saha? Should be enough I think. Vidic and Evra should be 'adjusted' by now. I don’t rate Evra but Vidic I think will do fine. If United could get Tevez I think they would be a great team. Also they should consider Luca Toni who I think would do well for them. 20 goal a season Ruud will be hard to replace.
Liverpool have signed 100 players, I cant list them all but 2 of them are headcases, Bellamy and Pennant. I wouldn’t have taken Bellamy - they are linked with Kuyt still as well. For a team that likes 4-5-1 (and Crouch is the one) they are bulking up a bit on strikers. Bellamy wont enjoy being on the bench. I don’t see why they are loading up on wingers (Kewell, Zenden, Gonzalez, Gerrard, Riise, Pennant). Too many players there. Still they have a huge squad now to pick from and I think will have a good season. I have them as second this year
Chelsea - lost a fair few players, going to kick out SWP as well but will still win league comfortably as they will have Ballack, Shevchenko and probably Ashley. Not to mention they picked up Kalou for extra cover up top.
Tottenham - WHERE DOES THEIR MONEY COME FROM? Well, apparently Manchester now but prior to Carrick they were still getting in lots of players. Going to be tough to keep out of the top 4 this year. I hope Zokora is crap.
