    Been rumoured for ages, untill we got Adebayor of course, i dont see the need for 2 tall strikers, only way we would need a new striker is if Henry left, and i would NOT take Zigic as a replacement for Henry

    Personally I would have had Hiddink or Allardyce with McLaren still as a coach, but it still isn't a bad choice.

    Ha, ha Henry is a player of Barcelona....
    And Zigic if he dont sign for Arsenal he would go to HSV(Hamburger from Bundes liga) who offerd more money for Zigic... And after Mondial Nikolova prise will go up...

    McLaren isn't a bad choice i mean look at what he has achieved at Boro...

    btw, somehow the Middlesbrough team of this season sorta reminds me of Leeds during the 1999/2000 season...

    In my honest opinion I think the two defenders Sir Alex bought in Janurary, Vidic and Evra, are nowhere near the quality of what I've seen United produce before. Vidic has potential and yes I could see him becoming a good defender however I don't see him reaching any of that potential until towards the end of next season. As for Evra I think he will be sold at some point next season or put on loan because in all honesty I think he's one of the worst left backs I've seen in the premiership.

    Arsenal will be much stronger next season I reckon. Henry will stay and we'll most likely sign Torres as he desperatly wants to come to Arsenal and Adebayor needs much more experience before he can play alongside Henry. The Van Persie-Henry partnership also needs to be worked on drasticly.

    I also predict that Crystal Palace will win the play offs and Sheffield United will be relegated from the premiership after their first season in it.

    I'm watching the UEFA cup final now and Middlesbrough have completly pissed it away, it's just gone 3-0 to Sevilla. I'm completly dissapointed with them, no rhythem in their play whatsoever. I just prey that Arsenal do the job right.

    EDIT: 4-0, I sure hope McClaren does a better job at England :lol:

    But boro were playing better at the beginning of the second half...Viduka had a good change.

    I was kinda surprised, I thought they might be able to get back into it at 1-0, then I checked the final score. I didnt see it so I cant say whether it was the teams or mclarens fault, but thats a good way to win over the England fans already worried by the lack of 'ability' of Steve McClaren
