That New Blood!

That New Blood!

With three news players confirmed as already being on the books and with one superstar, seemingly, on his way, Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken about reshaping the squad.

Having accused our rivals, Chelsea, of having an ageing squad sometime back, Sir Alex probably knew that he was facing the same situation.

Age defies nobody (except the boss that is) and with Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Edwin van der Sar all hanging up their boots, it was essential that Sir Alex made his move in the transfer market this summer.

Explaining his policy, Sir Alex commented to the assembled hacks, in America,

"We try to look ahead and we have an influx of young players coming in to replace the older ones, who are starting to die on their feet!"

"We were well aware of the need to replace Ryan Giggs. Fortunately he`s still managed to carry on and still perform the way he does - but Gary Neville, Scholes and Edwin van der Sar have all retired."

"This new blood is just what the club needs."


The only danger we foresee is that with several other fringe players having been moved on we could be accused of being just a little reliant on the new boys clicking straight away, but we`re sure Sir Alex is only too aware of that!

I don't think it's a case of replacing the missing players but adjusting our game to ensure their influence isn't missed. When Ronaldo left for 80 mil we didn't seek a superstar but instead changed our game and focused the team around Rooney and bought Valencia to compliment the system. When Keane left once again we didn't replace but adjusted. Replacements for both Scholes and Giggs are hard to find as very few can emulate their ability and the ones that can tend to cost a bomb so I, like before, I expect us to adjust our game slightly.
