The wait is almost over with the new Premier League season less than two weeks away. The transfer market seems to be quiter than usual for certain clubs, mine included. I saw a bit of the game against Peterborough today, overal not the best of games but it was never going to be so close to the season. Pretty much like Ole's testimonial on Saturday which wasn't the best of games. The atmosphere there was fantastic though. We haven't made any big signings yet but I think we'll be seeing some younger players playing a part in the smaller games, particularly coming off the bench if we're winning near the end. It appears that teams are allowed 7 players on the subs bench this year instead of 5 and I think that's a good move to allow younger players to get a shot. As it stands with 5 the players picked tend to be the best players not starting incase there's an injury of something. With 7 sibs you can still put a tried and tested player for each position on the bench (keeper, defender, midfileder and attacker) but you can put 2 or 3 younger players on the bench too. We've got a couple of young Brazillian lads playing for us now. We signed them a while back but they've just joined the team now. When I read the headlines "Brazillian twins arrive in Manchester" the thoughts going through my head were vivid, then I read that they we're footballers and that put a dampener on things. One of them, Rafael player the full 90 mins today and for a 17 year old he was brilliant, I think he'll get a few appearences in the league this year. then there's Rodrigo Possebon who looks good and Fraizer Campbell who I saw playing in person for the first time on Saturday who's very fast. Scored a good goal against Espanol too, but he's no where near the finished article yet. Of all our youngsters I'd say Rodrigo looks the most capable for his age, it's a pity he plays center mid, the one position we're alreadys more than covered in. Still with Anderson away at the Olympics and Park and Ronaldo recovering from injury and Hargreaves not having played yet in the pre-season I can see him getting a chance. So anyone looking forward to the new season, dumb question.
