Kevin Keen: Expects the club to make a couple of new signings

Former France international Nicolas Anelka remains manager Steve Clarke's only major summer signing so far.

And with the club having lost a number of key players during the off-season, Keen admits sporting and technical director Richard Garlick and chairman Jeremy Peace must aim to bring in some fresh faces.

"We're possibly a little bit thin on the ground," Keen told the club's official website.

"We've had a few players go out and the club are working extremely hard in the background to try to bring in a couple of new bodies of real quality that are going to excite the fans, similar to when Nico (Anelka) came in, when everyone went, 'wow, how's he signed for West Brom?'.

"We're hopeful that things will come off but we'll see over the next few weeks.

"We certainly need a couple of players and Richard (Garlick) and the chairman are working very hard to try and bring in new recruits."

W

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
