The VIPStakes sports representative that blogged from Brazil during the World Cup is back with a series of Sports Blogs in which he will write about the upcoming Premier League. Here's a short introduction about this season's teams, some predictions and betting advice!
Manchester United FC
Many people thought Man United success would stop for a little while whenever Alex Ferguson decided to leave the club. But that it would go as bad as it didn’t wasn’t something even the worst haters of the club would’ve guessed. It ended with a 7th place, which was the by far worst league position for the club since the start of the Premier League. That their rivals Man City and Liverpool were the top two didn’t make things any better.
Out goes David Moyes, in comes Louis van Gaal. The decision was made early when the results were not going the way the board and supporters of the club wanted. A couple of experienced players such as Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra have left and Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera have been brought in for large sums of money. United are looking for a quick return to the top again and we will probably see a few more players coming in before the window closes.
About 33 million pounds The Red Devils had to pay Southampton for the signature of Luke Shaw. That fee meant he became the most expensive teenager ever ahead of Wayne Rooney and Javier Saviola (!). After two impressive Premier League seasons with Southampton and a call-up to England’s World Cup squad the expectations are high on Shaw when he enters Old Trafford for his debut.
This season is all about revenge for Man United. On and off the pitch. If you are among the biggest football clubs in the world everything but a place in the top is a disappointment. New coach Louis van Gaal showed his tactical knowledge in the World Cup but his spell at Barcelona was not the most successful. Many questions will be answered during this season for Man United.
