Outlook (on 22 August 2013): Rarely noted for pizzazz, the Dynamo manager went about the auction in the calm, mediated fashion that saw him win the Emmanuel Olisadebe 2012 Euros, although he’s never been able to transfer that success to the domestic game. Coming 14th in his debut season, and finishing 6th in May, the Dynamo boss will be hoping this side can finally bring league glory.
Before slipping away from last weekend’s auction, the manager assembled an adequate side and left £14.5m in the pot to become the third most affluent for October’s transfer window, a useful asset when it comes to replacing Darren still-can’t-get-a-game-despite-changing-clubs-because-surely-Berbatov-will-start Bent.
I’m a professional tweeter now Rio Ferdinand aside, the rest of the side are likely to pick up appearance points throughout the campaign without setting the world on fire. Will it be enough?
