As I saw the first 70 or so minutes of play tonight, I was startled about the lack of cover for Wayne Rooney! Remember, Rooney is yet to be “consistent”. They won last year because everybody performed well, I doubt that’ll happen again. I don’t think Ronaldo is going to repeat last year’s performance.
They need a creative mid-fielder too – wish they had Ballack! Scholes is out of sorts and he isn’t looking sharp (I think he is on his way to retirement and isn’t going to perform any better this year).
I don’t believe United will be in the running for the crown this year.
