I watched the Germany vs Switzerland friendly, which saw the Germans run out 4-0 winners.

Philipp Lahm played at right back. He looked good in defence and looked even better going forward. This guy is a really a class act. My only concern would be that he might not be able to handle the physical demands of the prem.

Another player who caught my eye was Mario Gomez. Besides scoring 2 goals, he looked lively throughout and caused the Swiss some real problems.

Although this game was against a lowly Swiss side, both players stood out and looked like the hype surrounding them is not exaggerated.

I admit I haven't seen much of Gomez, so if any of you have, do you think he can do a job at United, if we don't get any of the star striker being named on this site?

There is no possibility of Man Utd signing a striker this summer. Sir Alex has confirmed that Fraizer Campbell will be returning to our squad for next season and that he will get the chance to prove he is a United player. We also have Manucho coming who has all the attributes to be a great striker. So we will not be signing a striker. Philip Lahm would be a great signing to play at right back, i am a big fan of his. If we miss out on him I would love for us to sign Rafinha instead who is a fantastic young right back.
Fergie will always say that young players will get a chance to prove themselves, but it doesn't mean they'll get many. I believe he will sell Saha and buy a replacement of proven quality. With Manucho that would make 4 first team strikers and young Campbell + Wellbeck as backups.

Have to disagree - we WILL sign a striker in the summer. I wouldn;t mind Huntelaar or Mario Gomez
