A Boring Summer For United Fans

A Boring Summer For United Fans

It seems that Manchester United fans will have to contemplate the fact that this summer we are NOT involved in virtually every transfer rumour that pops up.

Of course, it does not necessarily mean that the summer will be boring. We'll play some pretty meaningless friendlies in the Far East (if they are not cancelled, of course), we can play Football Manager and other stupid games. And there's an awful lot of things to do during a summer which are not related to football but are very advisable to do: hanging around with nice girls, eating icecream, go to the beach, waste our time in the office and so forth.

But no need to deny that football-wise this summer will be less interesting than the previous ones. We can talk at length about how Nani, Anderson and Hargreaves will fit into the squad and if we need a new striker or not but it will eventually peter out.

No takeovers at the horizon, no prospect of a vast influx of players and considerably less silly transfer rumours than we'd been accustomed to. With the Reds finishing their major transfer dealings as soon as May, this summer won't be a very hectic one.

Is it a problem? No, not for me. I despise the contemporary transfer season for its silly rumours and virulent stupidity but still I must collect all the gossip concerning us and contemplate the signings of a dozen players. This summer, however, I'll be able to live my life as a normal human being - as Hornby had said.

Of course, wrapping up the deals so early has its use football-wise - the new boys have time to gel with the squad and all that - but this use is dwarfed by the impact it has on my life. No increasing desperation and impatience, no reading foolish comments on various blogs about at least 30 players whom we should sign - my summer will be a blissful relaxation, apart from work, and I'll be able to live it without stress.

One might point out that fretting all summer about the possible signings of my favourite team is pathetic and I'm ready to agree: but it is also the effect of the modern transfer window and very few can stay out of its reach. I, unfortunately, am not one of them and therefore I must be grateful for United for making my life a good deal easier.

But of course, there's the question of a new striker...

Yes but the news are much slower than usual and an even bigger rate than usual of these rumours have no credibility at all. In the last few days I've been almost certain that I would find nothing really interesting about United on the web and I've been proved right...

Although i'm delighted at how we went out and got 2 of europes best young talents the summer just wont be the same without some journalistic clown from some stupid rag linking us with everyone player with 2 feet, although it must be said that citys takeover by a crook could bring a few laughs.
