    I just saw a headline "Desailly leaves Chelsea". What? Is this true? Pity, he was great at his prime.

    I also saw that Michael Reizinger is off to Middlesborough from Barca, Kluivert is interested in the Magpies (boo) and Chelski bought some Portugeuse defender for some ridiculous amount, yet he only played like 10 mins in Euro 2004. Good show Abramovich :|

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    I want a new thread, mods are there to be bothered!

    Desailly leaving Chelsea is sad, but he isn't in his prime anymore and Jose has bought a new Center back in Gabriel Heinze.

    How old is Rooney? I read in the paper he proposed to his girlfriend. At a petrol station :rolleyes:

    I wonder how Santini will pan out at Spurs.

    To be honest, I expect Spurs to do well this season. If they can get Postiga and Defoe to make a good striking partnersp.

    Middlesbrough have signed Reiziger and I think their getting Viduka as well.

    So Middlesbrough have Zenden and Reizinger. Not a bad combination to have. Yea, I heard Leeds also offloaded some other guy for a large sum of money. They mustnt offload too many players, otherwise they are going to struggle to make it back up.

    Chelski got Arjen Robben. I like that guy.

    Yeah he's good, i'm just hoping that he wont play on the left. Then well have Duff sitting on the bench all season. Although seeing that he's got rid of Gronkjaer to Birmingham ( :( ) i'd say Robben will be probably used on both sides depending on who else is available.

    Hesky went to Birmingham didnt he? Ha. Magpies are doomed to another mediocre season. As long as they have that idiot Bellamy and Dyer, that is all they will get.

    Yeah, to be honest i'd have to agree. ALtough if they sign Kluivert it could be good for them, or it could go horrbily wrong, horribly horribly wrong.

    Kanu and Wiltord gone :(

    And no Hasselbaink at Chelsea!

    There seem to be a lot of Dutch players in the league now.

    Yup Hasslewank was never one of my favourite players. He scored some good goals though, he has a powerful right foot.

    What are your predictions for this season?

    I think 1, 2 & 3 will be exactly the same.

    4th will once again be a tussle between Liverpool and Newcastle.

    Yeah, Hasselbaink was pretty good.

    My predictions are.

    Chelsea > Everyone else.

    Actually i'm hoping that some of the smaller teams trounce Newcastle and Liverpool for 4th and 5th spot.
