Man Utd So Blunt Against Newcastle

Here we go, the football fever is back. Finally after a long 3 months wait for the English Premiership to start again for season 2008/2009, it is back.

Unfortunately, Man Utd failed to beat Newcastle in their first match for the season. They look so blunt. They definitely need a week in week out striker to boast their chance to defend the trophy this season. But at the same time, we have to give credit to Shay Given for performing superbly against Man Utd. He had make at least 4 important saves to deny Man Utd a victory. Thumbs up also for Argentinian duo Fabricio Coloccini and Jonas Gutierrez had superb debuts

There are so many injuries to Man Utd camp at the start of this season, but yet, this can't be used as an excuse for not winning a match. That shows, the bench is not strong enough. That shows the squad is not strong enough. They certainly need to strengthen their striking department considering that Man Utd only have Rooney and Tevez as the experienced striker. Frazier Campbell is good but he need to establish himself in premiership first. Saha is so injury-prone. So striker is what Man Utd is lacking at the moment.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool had strengthen their squad. Surprisingly Man Utd is so passive in the transfer market this season.

But then, it is only 1st game into the season. It is not over yet. There are 37 more games to go.
