Expectations (2)

Considering our season-ending form (21 goals in the final 7 matches), we should expect a lot of balls in the back of the net this season if Álvarez can get the boys to keep up the good work in front of net.  I’m hoping for a LOT of goals based on that form, the preseason matches, and the 3 very hungry strikers who all have their own individual points to prove.  Fabiano could play himself into a lucrative contract next year if he nets 20+ goals; Kanouté was disappointed with himself, feeling like he never quite found his form last season with injuries and the ACN; and we all know that Negredo has more than RM’s buy-back clause (or a new deal with Sevilla) to aim at – he’s got a lot of pride on the line.  Throw in some hungry young guys like Rodri and Alfaro and we’ve got ourselves quite an arsenal.  Take your pick!
