Last season Park Ji-Sung was battling for the title with England's most successful club. This season he'll be battling again but at the other end of the table.
For many, Park's move to QPR was a shock. Many thought he still had something to give at United as Ferguson trusted him so much in the "big" games. However the wings at United hold far better talent and the central midfield positions have been bolstered by Kagawa and Powell.
It's seen as a real coup that Mark Hughes has captured the South Korean. Especially as he was previously linked with the Old Lady of Italian football: Juventus. Along with Park, QPR have invested in players with previous Premier League experience. Andy Johnson, Rob Green and Ryan Nelsen are the most experienced of the new guys.
When a team is fighting for its life at the bottom of the table, it needs all of its players to play like a team and put in a shift. Now last season Joey Barton was acting like a ten year old that thinks he's better than his club. Thus he's been given a lengthy ban for kicking out at Sergio Aguero.
Moussa Dembele impressed a lot of people for Fulham last season. He gave them attacking flair which Fulham have missed for years. The tricky Belgian has close control and a shooting ability in his locker. Jol will be keen to keep Dembele but with interest coming from Spain, he'll find it very hard to.
Although at this stage they are just rumours, Dembele would be a perfect fit for La Liga. If these reports have some substance, Mourinho may have to sell to find room for the Belgian. As we know Moussa Dembele can play as a lone striker and on the wing. But he is best suited in the hole, supporting the striker. So to get the best out of Dembele, Mourinho would have to sell someone such as Kaka.
It seems absurd that one would sell Kaka, the Brazilian maestro, for Fulham's Moussa Dembele. However Kaka's life at Madrid has been an unhappy one. Not forgetting the constant link between the Brazilian and AC Milan. However Madrid are lacking wingers at this moment of time. Dembele may not be suited as well on the wing but he cuts inside wonderfully, weaving in and out of defenders.
We are in the era of the little playmaker. It's now one of the most important positions in football. Every team is looking to buy the perfect player to sit in the hole. This phenomenon seems to have sprouted from Barcelona. Like most things in football do these days.
The owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich is said to be an admirer of the way Barcelona play. So it's natural for the Russian to purchase players who are the same build and have the same style as Barcelona's best. It's no secret that Abramovich makes the signings at Chelsea but this spending spree has given Roberto Di Matteo an influx of playmakers. He'll certainly find it difficult, giving all of the playmakers enough playing time. However as Chelsea will play more games than they've ever played before this season, a good squad will be needed.
Never has one been so proud to be British. The 30th Olympiad brought prosperity and pleasure to a downbeat nation. It was a much needed boost for the people of Britain and it really made its citizens proud to be from the British Isles.
What an Olympics Britain hosted. A tiny nation off the coast of Europe hosted the biggest party, the World has ever seen. Danny Boyle did himself justice as he choreographed two amazing ceremonies. It really put Britain back on the map and showed off it's amazing culture.
The opening ceremony brought together the history of Britain along with fantastic musical geniuses, literature greats and show stopping television personalities. It was a highlight packed show but for me the best highlight was certainly Mr Bean performing "Chariots of Fire". It was truly laugh out laugh comedy combined with the fantastic performing skills of Rowan Atkinson. When I saw her majesty the Queen and Daniel Craig jump out of a helicopter to the James Bond theme tune, I knew Britain had done it. That music gave me goose bumps as I realised Britain is responsible for such amazing exports.
Sir Alex Ferguson has very fixed transfer targets every year. He rarely buys a player because one of his scouts has a hunch. Apart from Bebe of cause. Lucas Moura and Robin van Persie are both immensely talented forwards but United can surely only purchase one of them.
But which one would be better suited for Manchester United and which one is better of moving elsewhere?
Robin van Persie was the Barclays Premier League top scorer last season. He was the sole reason why Arsenal could maintain and finish in the top four. He has everything you'd expect in a striker and Arsenal will certainly miss him if he leaves the Emirates.
Although Manchester United are in the race to sign the Dutchman, they face competition from Manchester City and Juventus. RvP has made it known that he wants to join a club with history. Which rules out Manchester City as their history has come in the last year. Juventus and United are two of the biggest clubs in the World and their history is unparalleled in their respected countries.
