Park Ji-sung is might not play for us anymore this year. His recovery might take until January. The South Korean, who should feature in every World 11 Bench Sitters, if there were such a thing, will surely be missed, but a fresh Park in January could be a bonus for a squad aiming at a 66 games season.
Gaby Heinze’s agent has told the Club that the Argentinian tackler wants to move on. I can understand that Gaby wants to play more regularly, but with his growing consistency I actually expected him to become regular again at OT. I admit, I have a weak spot for Gaby.
Heinze could leave us buying out the remainder of his contract, because he has already played 3 seasons for ManU and not yet secured a new deal. This would leave me with a very bitter taste. I hope we can at least get the 5million buy out for him.
But what are 5million for Heinze compared to the rumoured 5.5million Sunderland paid for Richardson? Once more we have to say ‘Thank You, Roy!’ Hopefully Roy Keane will also be interested in Smith and pay more than any other team has offered so far.
Yes, I’ld still prefer Smith to leave and hold on to Rossi. 9 goals in 19 appearances in a very defensively played Serie A, that can only be an asset for us. Especially when the player’s only 20.
And now go sign up for our Fantasy League if you haven’t yet!
