Fair enough - I'd agree that Bent could disappoint - the fact that Spuds paid more for him than Barca did for TH defies all logic - even taking his age into account.
I reckon that Torres will score goals for 'Pool, but am not sure if he's played with partners in the mould of Kuyt or Crouch before. I reckon that Mascherano will make Liverpool a much stronger proposition this season - so if their midfield can get the balls into the right place at the right time, Torres will deliver.
Agree with you that Shevchenko will disappoint - by his own high standards. Of course he will score goals, but whether he will link up any better with Drogba is another issue entirely. I'm actually quite interested to see whether Drogba will be able to repeat his heroics of last season. the fact that he's physically very strong, and also acts as though he's been shot whenever a defender tries to dish it out to him makes him a handful - but I reckon that we'ill see the big man being kicked up into the air this coming season..... and getting less sympathy from the officials than he thinks he deserves.
TH is a class act, so if he remains injury free in a less physically demanding league, then he'ill do well at the Camp Nou.
Owen hasn't had a good season in four or five years - there's no reason to assume that he's going to turn it around this season - even with Joey Barton attempting to supply the bullets.
Torres-may struggle at first especially as rafa likes to turn his team, it may be hard to get consistency.
Bent-Same deal hard to get games therefore may flop.
Nani-will take time to adjust
Sheva-just plain past it
Owen-Knee surgery by november
Bianchi-maybe he's a Zola but more likely a Corradi
Eduardo-If he is a poacher of top quality there will be no shortage of chances.
Utaka-Big, strong, physical and technical...I think he could do well for Harry.
Viduka-Class and will bang em in for Newcastle
Tevez- Scary thought Rooney, Tevez, Giggs, and Ronaldo running at ya!
Babel- The kid is flat out good and fast.
