Bluenose traitor writes us off

Steve McManaman believes that Liverpool's £40million worth of new signings will not bring a first Premier League title since 1990.


Manager Rafael Benitez has signed Fernando Torres, Ryan Babel, Yossi Benayoun and Andriy Voronin over the summer, but McManaman, who made over 300 appearances for Liverpool during a nine-year spell at Anfield, feels that Chelsea will win The Premier League this season.


McManaman, who was speaking at the launch of the Setanta Sports channel, feels that the new signings will take too long to gel as a team: "For Liverpool fans the Premiership title is the holy grail.


"Fernando Torres has arrived for a lot of money and the fans will be expecting him to do well straight away," McManaman continued.


"The Liverpool fans will expect them to win the Premiership this season. But I still think it will be very difficult to dislodge Manchester United and Chelsea this season. The fact they had a 20 point gap over Liverpool last season showed it was a big gap.


"It is not as easy as splashing out a lot of money on new players and then expecting them to win the title. Manchester United and Chelsea have also spent a lot of money.


"You hope that Liverpool can win it in the future but at the moment United and Chelsea seem to have a hold on it."
