Ferguson Points Out Top Buys

Ferguson Points Out Top Buys

Sir Alex Ferguson has pointed to Everton's transfer purchase of England striker Andy Johnson as the bargain of the summer.

AJ moved for £8.6million from Crystal Palace and Sir Al told Inside United magazine: 'Andy Johnson will definitely help Everton. He's quick and always on the move and he'll get them a few penalties this season. I reckon he'll score upwards of 15 for Everton this season and will prove to be a really good signing.'

He also says that Spurs new boy Berbatov could be one to watch as well as mystifyingly pointing out Emile Heskey (also known as Amule).

'Berbatov may prove to be a good signing for Tottenham. We watched him quite a bit at Bayer Leverkusen and he's a really good player. And I think Wigan will get a bit of joy out of Emile Heskey this season. I don't think he has ever quite realised his potential at Liverpool or Birmingham, but it may be different at a smaller club like Wigan, if he could recover the form he showed at Leicester where he was the main player.'

Have to wonder, with AJ being such a bargain, why Man Utd didn't move for him as it was obvious Ruud was on his way out?

Amule Heskey LOL. He scored 4 goals last season, what a great buy for Wigan.
