Good morning. We've had nearly a month without any competitive
football, but fear not, the new season is
football, but fear not, the new in your seat belts for
football, but fear not, the new Day Kickabout. -- fasten your
football, but fear not, the new League clubs have been getting up to
during pre-season. There has been singing, dad sing, but -- dancing
and plenty of laughs. We have the latest transfers and we look back at
the best moments from the World Cup. I get so excited at this time of the
year. I get so excited at this time of the
all these new faces. Alexis Sanchez in Arsenal, Luke Shaw at Manchester
United. Brand-new kit as well. Tottenham. There is a team whose
hopes are sky-high this season. The manager will be hoping Andros
Townsend can get back to full fitness. Then there is Liverpool.
Townsend can get back to full They have a potential star in the
form of Adam Lallana, who was one of the best players last season. Can he
be important getting them to the top spot? Can you talk about any kit
without talking about the kit of the champions? Manchester City. They
might have not bought many players but do you need to when you've got
this chap? First up is my clip of the week, and for this we are moving
away from the Premier League to the second division of Spain. Feast your
eyes on those T-shirts. It is all about the Tuxedo. That is
without doubt the smartest kit I've ever seen and they only planned to
air it for a pre-season game but it is so popular they are keeping it
for the season. You will have noticed the World Cup corner is
still here. I've decided to keep it for one last week because, actually,
the last of the World Cup specials was the day before the big final
between Germany and Argentina. You -- here's a reminder of how the
tournament came to a close. What a waste. Lien on messy -- Leo
messy. The flag is up. It will not count.
Fired across, he has got it, all he could do was lifted wide. Another
chance goes. He has scored for Germany. As he
just won the biggest prize you can get?
You just have to say fair play to that brilliant young German team.
What a fitting end to such a thrilling tournament. It had
everything. Great goals, close matches, amazing fans. The next
World Cup is just around the corner. There are 100 -- there are 1397 days
to go. That is quite a long time actually. Let's hope this season is
just as exciting for three of the biggest names, with huge transfers.
Coming in at number three, remember this goal? It is brilliant. What a
goal. Look at this. Unbelievable. Paris Saint-Germain certainly liked
it. They have paid ?50 million to sign him.
At number two is this little maestro from Colombia. Moment of magic.
One touch, what an absolutely fantastic strike that is. He was
without doubt the star of the tournament and the Spanish giants
Real Madrid won the race for his signature, paying his old club ?63
million. At number one on the list, he's a player who has showed us both
the sublime and inexcusable. It is Luis Suarez.
You cannot give him that sort of chance.
Two players have gone down in the penalty area. He has done it again.
Luis Suarez rightly apologised for that but it has not stopped
Barcelona paying ?75 million for him. He is the most expensive
worldwide signing of the summer. Feast your eyes on this. The good
old British pound. With that ?75 million, Barcelona could have given
one of these to every single person in the whole of the United Kingdom
and still had some spare change. Or they could have treated their squad
plus every single Premier League scored to a trip into space. --
squad. Unbelievable. Premier League clubs have also been splashing the
cash. Also, I welcome to our three newcomers, Leicester, QPR and
Burnley. Here is the transfer activity.
The highs and lows, the thrills and spills, the joy and the fear.
Another year, another season in the Premier League and it is all just a
bit like the funfair. The transfer window is a bit of a
merry-go-round. Some players are hopping off. Still the football
world keeps turning. Manchester United. David Moyes has left, Louis
Van Gaal is manager. The experience of Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra
have ridden out of town. Chelsea have got the big names.
Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have all arrived. The big
question is, who has got the biggest prize?
For some teams this summer has been sweet as a nut. For others it has
gone a bit sour. Southampton have not been shy selling. Even the boss
has disappeared. It has left the fans feeling a little empty-handed.
Southampton are not the only team fearing that dreaded drop. West Ham,
Hull City, Aston Villa all went close to the bottom. But they
survived. Can they overcome the rough seas ahead and have they got
what it takes to stay afloat? For the teams coming up, it could be a
bumpy road. QPR, Leicester and Burnley will be happy to avoid a
battering. In this league, trouble has a habit of catching up with you.
For Liverpool and Everton fans, last season was quite a ride. But it's a
funny thing, momentum. It takes that effort to build up but once you got
it, it's all too easy to lose control. Then there's Manchester
City, the defending champions. They've been quiet all summer.
Perhaps Manuel Pellegrini thinks he's got the recipe for success. Is
his squad tasty enough? In the end it comes down to muscle. Who has the
power and strength and determination to fight to the top of the table and
stay there? Let the fun begin. The international matches have
finished and the new signings have arrived. There are a number of ways
in which clubs prepare for the campaign. There is the dreaded
pre-season fitness campaign. There is the dreaded
the mascot. Tottenham flew to America on their pre-season tour and
got gate-crashed by this lot. America on their pre-season tour and
Football is an easy game without the ball. Aston Villa have been enjoying
the sights of Texas. Liverpool have been in Boston, where Brendan
Rodgers faced a very difficult press Conference. Can you say welcome to
Boston in a Boston accent? Welcome to Boston. Manchester City have been
learning how to be local cakes, plus the ultimate Birds Eye view above
the skyscrapers. QPR have signed Rio Ferdinand to help strengthen
defence. Even he could not escape the initiation required to be part
of the squad and on the training pitch they got creative with camera
is. Back to Liverpool. Daniel Sturridge has been practising his
singing. And when a club in New Jersey at Mama Do The Hump: To show
-- when they asked a Liverpool defender to show his moves, he
obliged. That is just about it. Now I wish Arsenal good luck tomorrow in
the Community Shield. Will Alex Sanchez deliver? Good luck if you
support teams in the Football League who have their first matches this
weekend. For the Premier League there is just seven days left.
