Arsenal an accomplished side with a genuinely outstanding coach will not have it so easy this year. Manchester United have recruited intelligently in Carlos Queiroz a defensive organiser restored as Ferguson’s No 2 and also in Gabriel Heinze a fine left-back whose busy performances for Argentina in the Copa America signalled his promise. Cristiano Ronaldo will resume club duties eventually following a prolonged tour of Portugal duty now taking in the Olympics and probably the Eurovision Song Contest. The man who may well prove United’s player of the season is Rio Ferdinand. Just as Eric Cantona charged back from suspension to inspire United to a championship so may Ferdinand with his assured defending and occasional foray into midfield. Ferdinand owes United and Ferguson. Employer and manager stood by their sociable centre-half through all the embarrassing controversy over his missed drugs test.

” There are two bonus remixes (by Bill Laswell and Philippe Verge) of this convincingly poptastic song which also features a sparky accordion part by Clive Bell. Though Wobble’s unfeasibly low bass is prominent throughout this is definitely a pop album with tunes that wouldn’t be out of place at the Eurovision Song Contest. Not the British entry I hasten to add. Tango Crash (Galileo £13. 99) looks at first glance like another album put out in the wake of the Gotan Project’s success such as the patchy Piazzolla Remixed or the Bajafondo Tango Club. But there’s much more to it partly because it is so musical with a highly original approach to rhythm (the percussionist and co-producer is the talented Marcio Doctor).
