I honestly don't rate Walcott much; crap technique and low IQ player. I would actually rather Sinclair.

    Sorry, I was being facetious. The way I read your post was that because you rated Johnson higher than Walcott, Johnson was a massive ****.

    Champions League draw about to take place. Remember Manure getting an incredibly easy group last season?

    Well, they've given them an even easier group this time....

    Didn't they get knocked out of their easy group last season? Makes sense really.

    Yeah, feel's like a re-run from last season really.

    Easier draw for United than last time but won't be relishing a trip to Galatasaray. Citeh got a right smeller of a group. I noticed when I saw the pots that it was possible to have all of the champions from the top four leagues in the same group- well they got the Dutch champs instead of the Italians but it's not far off.

    Would've thought that Berbatov is an abolute bargain for Fulham at 4-5 mill as he should guarantee at least 10 goals per year and has a style that should allow him to play for a few more years yet

    Fergie has apparently just said that Berbatov could sign for Spurs.

    Dreamt last night that Berbatov signed for Arsenal and bagged a brace against Liverpool in Sunday's game. Very much doubt that will happen.

    Also dreamt that the pre-match handshake turned into a brawl, but then RVP showed up and everyone turned on him.

    Anyway...I see Van Der Vaart is off. Not particularly surprised. Won't be missed. Have never rated the guy as anything more than a Cinderella player.

    I also see De Jong has been sold to Milan. I think I would have kept him if I was Mancini, and tried to flog Barry instead. Not surprised one of City's midfielders has been moved on though, would have been a struggle to fit them all in.
