    I think the number of new players coming in has been something of a red herring. Sure — but it’s not as if they aren’t training together every day. Still, they act like strangers on the pitch at match time. Given that the new bunch are better than Livermore, Parker, Huds, Assou-Ekkoto and on down the list, AVB has only an embarrassment of riches to work with: can’t exactly feel sorry for him.

    David Moyes is somewhat lucky
    a) His team seems to have dusted itself off and now play with pace and power. That’s how Man U plays nothing fancy.
    b) The have winner-DNA
    c) They Are called Man U and They will surely challenge to retain their (Fergie’s) title.

    -Spurs do not have winner-DNA
    -want to purchase the title which costs a whole lot more than 100M (ASK MAN CITY)
    -Want to play smooth free flowing eye catching football.. (Even barca have been overrun by direct play, pace and power–(Barca 0-7 Bayern)
    -When you want to buy the title, It Takes at least 5-7 years of solid Multimillion purchases to win the title.
    – AVB is a good manager and he can turn it around probably starting with a good draw against Man U.
