So, we are only three weeks or so away from the start of another Premiership season in which we all hope No. 19 will be delivered. Assuming it happens, who/what do you think will make the difference between our beloved cup specialists of recent seasons and relentless championship winners in 06-07? In which areas are we really going to see the team take a step up to overhaul Chelsea, and most importantly for this thread, who is your prediction for our player of the season? Is it going to be the year that Stevie G's awe-inspiring displays take us to the title? or is it going to be the year that a consistent striker rescues points when we're behind away, and turns tight draws into wins? Perhaps it's going to be a new import or promoted youth team player who starts slowly and then becomes indespensible as we go on a second half of the season unbeaten run?


For my two pence worth, I'm getting more excited by Bellamy's acquisition, and Fowler's pre-season fitness, I'm particularly interested to see how Benitez permutates Gonzales, Kewell, Riise and Aurelio down the left, and whether our right-sided signing will balance our midfield enough to let Gerrard go back to the middle permanently. I'm wondering whether on the basis of two pre-season games, Palleta is ready to shift either of our first choice centre-backs, or if there might be too many new faces in our defence allow it to to gel into a mean defensive unit quickly enough. However, I'm really looking forward to seeing Sissoko's second season. He was immense last time round, but I think he'll really be even more special this season. iven how much football they've played in the last year, i'm expecting dips from World Cup players, but Sissoko will be chomping at the bit to show his worth alongside those guys that went to germany, and his industrious play will be a key driving force in the months ahead whether we play with three in central midfield or not.
