Just thought i would make a post on here regarding these predictions which are published in today's newspaper "The Sun"

No10: Martin Skrtel


The Liverpool defender did not enjoy the best of beginnings after earning his first start in the shaky FA Cup win over non-league minnows Havant & Waterlooville. But Skrtel, who arrived from Zenit St Petersburg for £7million in January, has since impressed in Daniel Agger's absence.

No9: Wilson Palacios


When Steve Bruce made his surprise exit from Birmingham, he brought Palacios with him to Wigan. The £1m Honduras midfielder has been a revelation at the JJB Stadium despite rarely featuring during his loan spell at St Andrews. Manchester United could now make a summer raid after he helped drag the Latics to safety.

No8: Martin Petrov


The £4.7m Bulgarian winger was one of Sven Goran Eriksson's less high-profile arrivals during his pick of eclectic buys. But the former Atletico Madrid star proved an instant hit with his mesmerising runs and killer deliveries from the left. Petrov has also chipped in with five goals.

No7: Sulley Muntari


Harry Redknapp is enjoying spending big at Portsmouth but even at £7m, Muntari has proved to be a bargain. The Ghana powerhouse has eased into life in the Premier League with a series of eye-catching displays, including a number of superb strikes. But Redknapp could struggle to keep him at Fratton Park with Liverpool and Arsenal interested.

No6: Jermain Defoe


Tottenham fans shook their heads in disbelief when hitman Defoe was flogged for £7.5m, while £17m signing Darren Bent was misfiring. Defoe has already shown what they are missing by rattling in eight goals in his first 10 Pompey matches. One of the big four clubs will come sniffing if his form continues

No5: Carlos Tevez


Although Cristiano Ronaldo has been the star of Manchester United's season, Carlos Tevez has made a bright start to life at Old Trafford. The Argentina striker has grabbed 19 goals so far and has formed a devastating partnership with Wayne Rooney. And this is a player who struggled to get a game at West Ham just over a year ago.

No4: Yakubu


Eyebrows were raised when Everton paid a club-record £11.25m for Yakubu. The Nigerian hitman earned a reputation for blowing hot and cold at Middlesbrough but he has crashed home 19 goals since his switch to Goodison Park. The powerful forward possesses the quality needed to propel the Toffees to the next level.

No3: Anderson


When Manchester United paid over £30m for Anderson and Nani, the greater excitement was over the latter. But it has been Anderson who has excelled in his debut season, while Nani spent much of the season looking and learning. It seems Alex Ferguson has found his long-term replacement for Paul Scholes.

No2: Roque Santa Cruz


The Blackburn striker is certainly the bargain of the season, if not the top signing. At just £3.5m — a snip in today's market — the Paraguay ace has produced 23 goals for Rovers. Mark Hughes pulled off a coup when he tempted the striker from Bayern Munich but will have to battle to hold on to him.

No1: Fernando Torres


You have to be top notch to prove value for money at £26m but Torres is just that. Doubts were raised when the hitman arrived from Atletico Madrid but the Spaniard has blown them apart with 32 goals in his debut season. Liverpool may have under-achieved again but there is hope for the future with Torres

Torres scored more goals than all his team mates added together ...

Then these Bindipper fans accuse us of being a one man team ...


Take away Torres' goals for the Dippers ...

And this season they would have scored 26 ...
So true
