In 2011/2012, the Barclays Premier League had everything drama, shock and what not. In fact the finish to the season was unlike any other because it ended in the most dramatic fashion. In the end the winner of it of all was Manchester City, who won the title for the first time since 1968.
The 2012/13 season has arrived. During the offseason, Manchester United have been very active in the transfer market and are already the early favorites to win the league as always.
Manchester United a team with great history, one of the most storied clubs and side who makes everything interesting from start to finish. Last year United despite finishing runners-up had a very up down and season. In the beginning of season they were on fire playing well. However there was one slight problem, they were not doing enough to keep themselves ahead of Manchester City and cracked at the end of the season.
During the off-season United have picked up exactly what they were missing a striker who could as dominant as Wayne Rooney. His name is Robin van Persie and his signing shows that United mean business right from the word go and that Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t want to leave anything until the end of the transfer-window.
Shinji Kagawa has also signed this summer moving to the club from Borussia Dortmund and the Japanese creative-minded player looks a player born to play in the Premier League, although it may take him time to get used to the pace and intensity of the league, like all newcomers to the League tend to do so.
The other good thing that United have is the old guards, the mentors in Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. They can lead the path and show the true legacy of the club to the youngsters. Mind you, this is not their only job, they can still produce the goods and will this season.
In conclusion if you ask me. Manchester United look set for another championship season. In fact if you ask me they look ready to go to Wembley and may even have a chance of the rare treble. Everything looks in place for the club to become the first team to reach 20 titles in the elite English league.
