1. Yeah I agree that Ferguson has done well in terms of spending money for value recently. We will get stick and people having digs at us about spending £22 million for a 29 year old striker. There is no resale value of course. I think for once Ferguson went into the market and said “I’m buying for now with Van Persie, not next season or 2 seasons from now, but he is arriving for today and this season”. I don’t see anything wrong with that. If Van Persie helps us win the title this season then its worth the money, end of story.

    I’m not stupid and Van Persie is a player we have signed for the next four seasons, not just one season, but my point is valid. He is being bought with short-term measures and not someone we are thinking over the long-term. He will be 32 at the end of his contract and could easily head somewhere else for free at that stage. However this time we will be happy as long as he has delivered goals and trophies.

    Kagawa can be potentially be a fabulous player for us but we still need to find him a correct position. However he can be the creative and technical player we have needed for a while. The key to this boy is his intelligence and that is where we will benefit big time. Nani and Young are good but are not thinkers. They get the ball and cross and hope. Kagawa is more efficient and picks out good passes and makes good decisions. Its a massive difference having a player capable of making the right choice 8-9 times out of 10. Valencia is a player who is reaching that kind of level as well now.

    Nick Powell is an exciting young talent and somebody who no one is talking about. However that is good because there is no pressure and he can come in a surprise a lot of people this season. Powell was head a shoulders above the players in the League Two when playing for Crewe. He is only 18 years old and scored 16 goals last season, including a terrific goal at Wembley in the Play-Off final. I see him as somebody Scholes will take under his wings and make him his long-term replacement.

    I am still worried about the left back area because we need another one, and also a lack of aggressive tackling midfielder. I know Ferguson doesn’t like defensive midfielder’s but I do feel sometimes we need a player like that. The 4-4 draw against Everton is an example of a game when we needed someone to stop there midfield from playing, but no one could do it.
