Despite me being a big fan of Simpson, since I've seen him a couple of times, already I voted for Welbeck, and because I didn't know who to vote for! :p

I'm not that bothered about Ben Amos. I do hope he does well, and makes it here, but I'm more concerned with Ben Foster tbh.

I was going to vote for Frazier Campbell. I think coming on as a sub in the derby when we're losing and coming on as a sub in the Coventry game is unfair to judge him on, and I'm looking forward to seeing him. He had a very good season with Hull last year, and if he was to go back to Hull, I would hope it would only be on loan. But hopefully he gets some chances next year.

I don't know much about Brandao, so it would be interesting to see him.

I've heard great things about Possebon and Welbeck, but never seen them play.

I don't know if Possebon will get much football next year, simply because we are packed in central-midfield. I think he might go out on loan at some point. I've also heard great things about Welbeck, and by the sound of things hes going to be a top class player.

I would also love to see Johnny Evans get more football then Pique did.

But in all honesty, I've got to ask the same question as Keano. Is there any point in buying a striker? Yes, I can see why people think so, but is it worth it? We've got Rooney, Tevez, Manucho, Campbell, Welbeck, and if Saha stays fit, thats 5 strikers to choose from. If we get another striker, I can see at least one being shipped out, whether that be on loan or permanently.

I think we would be better off just not buying a striker, and letting either all, or a couple of Rooney, Tevez, Manucho, Campbell, and Welbeck fighting it out for the striking positions.

The Reds carved out a club best ever Premiership defensive record last season as they stormed to the title. And with Gary Neville, John O'Shea and Mikael Silvestre pushing last season's regulars Wes Brown, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, getting a foothold in the rearguard is no mean feat.
Are you sure that bits not meant to be in with Johnny Evans instead of Manucho?

Manchester United winger set for Blues move

Lee Martin is expected to join Birmingham City Football Club this week.

The winger has failed to establish himself in the Manchester United first team setup, although he has impressed during their preparations for the coming season.

Despite this Sir Alex Ferguson is willing to let the 21-year-old, who impressed at Sheffield United last season, leave Old Trafford to gain regular first team football.

The Blades would like to take Martin back on a permanent basis this summer, but it is believed that Alex McLeish will win the race and take him to Birmingham City for £1.5million.
I can't say I'm too surprised tbh.

He looks an average player (in our position) and hasn't really impressed me that much when he's played. He did score a good goal against the Orlando Pirates, but apart from that hasn't done enough for me.

Also, hes well down the pecking order, just like Eagles was.

Villa To Beat Rovers For United's Simpson?

Manchester United full-back Danny Simpson could be moving out of Old Trafford on loan - but while Blackburn Rovers or Manchester City looked favourite to sign him, Aston Villa could yet hijack that deal and take Simpson to the West Midlands.

According to The Sunday Mirror, Blackburn manager Paul Ince is poised to offer Simpson, who is also wanted by Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, a one-year loan deal.

However, Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill, who is anxiously looking to bolster his defensive options, could out-flank his rivals and have Simpson at Villa Park for the new season.

The 21-year-old full-back has been assured by United manager Sir Alex Ferguson that he will be sent on loan to another Premier League club, having spent part of last season in the Championship with Ipswich Town.

Meanwhile, Blackburn boss Ince is also said to be lining up a bid for French midfielder Julien Sable - although Italian side Chievo Verona will compete hard with Rovers for Sable's signature.

Ince, though, is understood to have invited the 27-year-old Lens star to Ewood Park, and he should be flying in today for talks and a some training with Blackburn - who could take him on loan or buy him for around £1.5million.
Hopefully its just on loan for a season.

But with Neville's fitness doubts, we should be keeping him here as cover.
