Potato Player Preview

With the new season around the corner, potato pundit previews some of the new additions

Arsenal - Tomas Rosicky

Rosicky has taken Pires' number 7 shirt, can he provide the creative passing and goals the frenchman so stylishly provided?

Potato Predicts: Wenger's signings usually take a while to settle in, but the Czech playmaker certainly fits into Arsenal's playing style

Aston Villa - Martin O'Neill

While not a player, the new manager is arguably the club's best move in a long while and Villa fans will hope he breathes life into a squad decimated by mediocrity

Potato Predicts: He will bring in much needed optimism but he needs new signings, and quick.

Blackburn Rovers - Benni McCarthy

So often the target of many Premiership clubs, EPL fans will finally get to see what the fuss was all about.

Potato Predicts: Having lost Bellamy to Liverpool, Blackburn are banking on him to provide the pace the Welshman offered - a risky gamble by Mark Hughes

Chelsea - Andriy Shevchenko

Potato Predicts: Too old? Too expensive? Premiership beware, the man is lethal

Liverpool - Gabriel Paletta

Definitely not the most big name capture, the young Argentine is brought in to provide cover at the back.

Potato Predicts: He reads the game well and is confident with the ball at his feet. Definetely a change of pace to the rugged Carragher and Hyppia

Man City - Bernado Corradi

The Italian striker hasn't settled in at Valencia, can he do it at Manchester?

PP: He does have the physique for the English game, but one wonders whether he can settle here. Possible flop alert

Man Utd - Marcos Senna (possibly)

Senna is of the Makelele mould, can he provide the engine to the United midfield?

PP: Senna is a top quality player and United will benefit more from him than Carrick

Spurs - Didier Zokora

While the more expensive Berbatov has been grabbing the headlines, it is the arrival of the Ivory Coast midfielder that is crucial to Tottenham.

PP: Zokora is possibly the best new arrival in the Premiership and if his performances in the World Cup is anything to go by, Spurs have a major star.
