OK lets try this one again. Who is going to make a big impact on the Premiership this season or maybe ever abroad for that matter?  Who will be this seasons Lennon, Carrick, Cesc? Also who is coming through at your club who we all should keep an eye out for over the next few years?

OK firstly I think Huddlestone and Mark Noble will have big part to play this season. Maybe Noble will not emerge until January but he has massive potental which I for one can't wait to see. Huddlestone is why Tottenham are happy to lose Carrick.  He can play in Defence of Midfield although I think he is more suited to the latter. He is in my opinon the captain of our next generation of English players, sure Rooney is the Gem, the spark but Huddlestone is the steadying arm. Hopefully United will pay over the odds and land Carrick giving Huddlestone his much deserved chance.
Micah Richards is another one that I will be keeping an eye on. Looked raw last season but has bags of potental.
I also think Bent and Ashton will be an interesting watch. Can they both prove they aren't a Kevin Phillips and do it again year after year. Only time will tell.

Onto the Blades an who is going to impress well its going to be a difficult season for us so impressing will be twice as hard.
Micheal Tonge is lauded by at lot of the fans and did interest Liverpool a few seasons ago although I think he is overated.
Jagielka will impress and would be one of the players picked off us if we didn't stay up. However he is hardly an unknown quantity with most of the Premiership having tracked him at one time or another.
If I had to name two who will make an impact and show their class it would be Danny Webber and Chris Armstrong. Webber is very much a confidence player (then again which forwards aren't) who was relased from Man Utd as a trainee. I expect him to be involved in most of the goals we score this season.  Armstrong is a left sided player at either full back or left wing. He has battled back from actually offered an insurance payout to retire from his knee problems which saw him out for nearly 2 years.

Assuming that Utd don't sign anyone to replace Ruud, Rossi I think will have an impact...have only seen glimpses of him but a mate of mine who is a Utd fan says he is class

Leroy Lita from Reading as well has the attributes for a good Prem striker

Lescott now at Everton I think will form a very good partnership at the back with Yobo and he'll be ithcing to prove himself after ebing injured when Wolves came up a couple of seasons ago

Rossi has been built up for years - with good reason; he's been fantastic in reserves and at youth level and as has already been said it's time he took the step at senior level - be it at Utd or out on loan, he has nothing to gain from playing at the same level.

Hopefully he'll realise the potential he has shown - if he does a pairing of Rossi & Rooney has a long future.

Liverpool's 17 year old striker Craig Lindfield is touted for big things. He was top scorer for the youth team last year when we won the youth FA Cup. He also scored the only game at the weekend against Crewe. Chilean winger Mark Gonzalez should also be one to watch. Rafa chased him for two years before we finally got a work permit for him and he was apparently a revelation in Spain last season.

I'll be watching to see if 16 year old Armand Traore of Arsenal gets a start. I've only seen him play 45 minutes in the Bergkamp testimonial but he looked really promising at left back and there is talk of high hopes for the kid. He looks like Clichy mark II or a Cole mark III. With Cole on the way out and Clichy apparantly injured it leaves only an out of position Flamini to fill the role.

Having said that, he may well be one for the long term and wenger has no plans to play him.

Really looking forward to seeing if John Obi Mikel and Kalou live up to the hype as well as Diarra who has looked impressive.

Outside of the 1st team Anthony Grant looks a bit special as well as Danny Hollands but the best hope would probably be Jimmy Smith an attacking midfielder who is technically outstanding

Tomas Rosicky.

I think now that he's in a team of players who share his quality he'll thrive on it.
I love to watch him on the ball, he's so quick running with ball at feet and he has a hell of a strike on him.

I'm hoping Rossi will make more appearances for United this season.

I'm also hoping for big things from Rossi's old partner Sylvan Ebanks-Blake who has joined Argyle, it would be nice if we had a forward who could bag more than 10 in a season!

Also wondering if some young unkown called Walcott steps up for Arsenal.

Big things from Rossi this season but i am also expect David Jones to have an impact on united weak midfield. Pique should do well on loan somewhere

Also watch the divison top goalscorers as
Michael Chopra (Cardiff City) looks the part already having already got 4 goals in friendlies already. He also a team player unlike Cameron Jerome was and is already bring the best out of his strike partner Steve Thompson. Cheers for him geordies  

Ebanks Blake is also going to be a great signing for Plymouth

Kevin Doyle and Shane Long at Reading could be two to impress, in fact many of the Reading youngsters like Lita could be surprise names.

After that I expect our boy Micah to continue to make strides and I hear the Hammers have a young boy there coming through also, Teddy something or other......

I'm looking forward to seeing Zokora and Berbatov in action for Spurs.
Apparently the bookies have Berbatov as odds on to break into the 20 goal bracket this season - no Spurs player has done that since Klinsmann 10 years ago!

We have a new right-back in Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who was reportedly the best full-back in the French league last season.  Will be interesting to see how he gets on.

He might be warming the bench for united next season which is a shame because he looks like he could be a decent England Keeper if he got a full season of the prem under his belt.

Robbo has put pay to that with his pisstaking of asking for Rossi on loan in the Kusczak deal

Haven't seen anything of Berbatov in action - who will be most likely to partner him? Defoe or Keane? It's be harsh to drop Keane, he had a good season last year, much better than Defoe.

If Curtis Davies does indeed make the move to Arsenal thats been touted all summer, I think he could be knocking on the England door by the end of the season.

Also, Kevin Doyle at Reading, Ashley Young at Watford, Rossi at Man Utd (again) and Tyrone Mears at West Ham

Berbatov will do well. Kevin Doyle was excellent last season, too, I can say - as a fan of a first division side.

Having watched him all last season I agree, but he needs to sort his distribution out to really excel.

Marlon King of Watford could have an impact I reckon as he bagged 21 league goals last season and in my opinion is there star player.

I also believe Francis Jeffers may prove his critics wrong (everyone) and bag a few goals.

I know everyone drones on about him but I really think Cesc Fabregas is the one to watch this season. He had a fantastic start to his Arsenal career but can he really step into Vieria's shoes and make himself a fan favourite. At just 19 he stands to make himself one of the most valued midfielders in Europe, he just needs to get a bit more dangerous in front of goal and I think Arsenal will find themselves proud employees of the most talented young midfielder in the premiership, if not Europe.

Aaron Lennon is one to watch as well after his form for Spurs and England whilst Guiseppe Rossi is seen as Man United's next big thing, only problem is will Fergie choose to replace RVN or bring him in as a third choice striker behind Saha and Rooney. I reckon the latter as that's why West Brom are holding out over a deal for Kusayck as it wouldn't surprise me if it's Rossi they want on loan.

From a Charlton point of view, obvious is Darren Bent, if he can find his flow again and reach 15-20 goals then surely he can stake a claim as an England striker and it will boost his value ahead of summer 2007. Two great seasons in the prem and we should be looking at latter double figures if he does leave the Valley. But the one to watch for me in SE London is young Simon Walton. Visit Leeds blogs and you'll see they're more annoyed over his exit than top scorer Rob Hulse. At just 18, he's been compared to the likes of Roy Keane and is a real breath of fresh air in our midfield. I expect him too get a few red cards but if he gets us fired up then I don't mind. Keep an eye on Si!

So far in pre-season it's been all 3 playing together.
Defoe has partnered Berbatov, but Keane has sat just behind them.

It's worked in the sense that Defoe & Berbatov have both scored a hatful, however I don't think it will be that system when the season starts.

That formation has been played without any of the England lads or Zokora, so I expect it to switch to 4-4-2.

Berbatov is in my fantasy team, do you think I need to have a quick word in Martin Jol's shell to make sure he starts the season first choice?

And as a Gooner, allow me to plug Fabrice Muamba who has joined Brum on a season long loan today, a fantastic prospect I think

Also, I fancy Julio Arca to show how good he really is now he has left Sunderland.

Purely from an Arsenal perspective I'll be keeping an eye on Justin Hoyte this season. He had a decent season out on loan at Sunderland last year and I think he might make his breakthrough this season although he will find it hard being behind Lauren and Eboue in the pecking order for right back. He can play on the left and with the imminent departure of Cashley and Clichy injured he could get his chance at left back although not his favoured position.

Im hoping Arturo Lupoli can have an impact on the first team squad this year, he's only 18 and has been prolific in the last few seasons for the reserve team. Last season scoring 19 goals, 17 in his first 15 appearences. He's had a few outings in the Carling Cup but hasn't really had his chance in the first team as of yet. I do fear he may never get his chance though having to contend with Van Persie, Adebayor, Walcott, Reyes and Aliadiere for the chance to partner Henry.

To be honest I could spend forever talking about young starlets at Arsenal because we have quite an abundance of them at the present time. Cesc, Walcott, Van Persie, Reyes, Gilbert, Bendtner, Larsson, Clichy, Djourou, Senderos, Eboue to name just a few. These are all first team and fringe players.

Then we've got the youth team who also have some promising players such as: Ryan Smith, Vita Mannone, Ryan Garry, Gavin Hoyte and Vincent Van Der Berg.

The future is bright at Arsenal, I just hope we can allow as many of them to fullfill their potential at Arsenal instead of buying in.

Lupoli and Hoyte are my 'must watch' players for this season and I think that Van Persie will come into his own this season as long as he stays free from injury, and don't forget young Mr Walcott

Interesting to see how many young British players the Arsenal have got coming through

Speaking from the sunny side or North London, Spurs have got a real quality young player called Jamie O'Hara. He's 19 I and was out on loan at Chesterfield last year and did weally well, well enough to get offered a 3 year deal. Kept hearing things about him since he was a 16 year old (apparantly he was the reason Dalmat got sent back to Inter a couple of years ago, Dalmat had started on him in training or something).
Saw him play the other day, (although it was only against Cambridge City!) and he looked on a par with Lennon, Zokora and Lee Young-Pyo who were also playing. He's a attacking central midfielder who can run all day, he topped the 'beep' tests this summer in training, with a left foot to boot!
Another 'unknown' who looked good was a centre back called Charlie Lee. He captained the side and was very vocal which is always good to have in young defenders. I wouldn't go so far as saying he plays like him, but he had a bit of Cannavaro about him, pretty small pretty seemed very astute and did everything right.

Other than them, I will be interested to see if either Phil Ifil or Terry Dixon get any playing time this year for the first team. I fully expect Huddlestone to do the buisness...

We've got a bunch of them ready to move up from the Academy this season, as has already been pointed out by the previous poster.
O'Hara, Barnard, McKenna & Lee.... are all tipped to make appearances in the 1st team this season - even if it's just cup competitions.
Not forgetting Dawkins who bagged a hat-trick against Bishops Stortford, despite being a 2nd half substitute!

In fact Barnard played the last few games last season while Mido was injured and looked half-decent as a backup.

We've only bought players for positions where we need a top-notch player to step straight in this season.

There are a couple of young Scottish lads who came through at Rangers last season. The most impressive by far was the right winger Chris Burke, who went on to make his Scotland debut (scoring twice) in the 5-1 friendly win against Bulgaria in the Kirin Cup in Japan.

However, his breakthrough came last season. This season a lot is hoped from from young left back Stevie Smith who looked very impressive when he came onto the scene last season. This season is his chance to learn a lot from Le Guen and to cement the place as his own.

There has also been a lot of talk about left sided attacker Charlie Adam. He was loaned out to St Mirren last season and done well, though he started on the left side of attack for Rangers against Motherwell and had an outstanding game. He set up both goals in a 2-1 win, cracked the bar himself, and went on to win man of the match.

It's good to see some talented young Scottish players making their way through at Rangers.

We've got a bunch of them ready to move up from the Academy this season, as has already been pointed out by the previous poster.
O'Hara, Barnard, McKenna & Lee.... are all tipped to make appearances in the 1st team this season - even if it's just cup competitions.
Not forgetting Dawkins who bagged a hat-trick against Bishops Stortford, despite being a 2nd half substitute!

In fact Barnard played the last few games last season while Mido was injured and looked half-decent as a backup.

We've only bought players for positions where we need a top-notch player to step straight in this season.


Justin Hoyte possible first 11 starter.
 
Matthew Connolly played last year in the Carling Cup semi final run.

Gilbert has been sent on loan to Cardiff for a season for experience but he is another one to watch.

Ryan Gerry.
