It's all very well to allocate a certain amount of goals we expect each player to score, but in reality we just don't know. We can't rely on the likes of Valenica (someone whose goal record was very low for a winger at Wigan) to chip in with lots of goals. 10 would be a massive ask.
Rooney, Berbatov and Owen are the only players we can realistically expect at least 10 from.
I understand what you're saying but I still don't think its unrealistic to expect Valencia to chip in with more than 4 goals. He's playing in a considerably better team who I'm sure will create a lot more chances than Wigan did while he was there.
Anderson is a mystery for me. I watched the open training day on MUTV before the Community Shield and he technique was fantastic in the shooting drills. Controlled and powerful, something, for whatever reason we don't see during games from Anderson. Fingers crossed we will this season!
I think we can realistcally expect more than 10 goals from the likes of Rooney, Berbatov and Owen baring any major injuries.
You a 'glass is half empty' kinda guy, right?
