Interesting Report in the independent that jose mourinho has shelved plans to bring in any first team full back choices (dont think dalot will play that much) . Instead mourinho is favouring the idea of focusing on getting a back up striker.

Can anyone see any logic in this plan?

If you took a poll of fans regarding which area of the pitch to strengthen, i'm sure 95% would have said full back. Also with rashford and martial at the club do we really need cover for lukaku?

Think it’s just paper talk. Ed said we are looking for a left back. I expect us to sign one. Much more pressing areas that striker. But I agree 95% of fans would definitely prefer the signing of a full back. We cannot have another year of young at left back. I would be happy to see shaw given a chance but we know Jose doesn’t rate him.

Maybe he's looking to try and play 2 up top next season.

Reports Shaw has been offered a new contract . See what happens.

09 Jun 2018 19:32:43
Jred good news if he has. We have a talented player there. Time for him to step up and show his worth. Time also for Jose to nurture him into a world class player. Let’s see what happens.

Shaw signing a new contract would be a form of self flagellation.

09 Jun 2018 20:02:08
Jred, are you referring to the club triggering the one year option they had on shaws contract or him being offered a new long term contract?

Because the former could just have been done to protect his transfer value whereas the latter is a real show of faith by the club and mourinho.

09 Jun 2018 20:03:51
Time for him to cop on more like.

09 Jun 2018 20:18:59
If you were Shaw would you sign it?

09 Jun 2018 20:45:22
Shaw shouldn't be offered one. Basic requirement of a professional athlete is fitness. Guy can't pass a kebab shop.

09 Jun 2018 20:49:11
I would love it if we sign a striker. Lukaku doesn't cut it for me om his own and if he gets injured i domt think we can rely on the kids.

09 Jun 2018 21:03:06
The kids are men.

09 Jun 2018 21:26:26
Not a hope in hell Jred. Shaw needs to move on for his own career. I don’t see any way he will get back to his best under Jose. Two years with him, and he’s not even guaranteed second choice. I’d say Shaw is hoping and praying that Poch comes in for him.

09 Jun 2018 21:29:34
Jose wanted lukaku we spent 90 mil on a striker the manager wanted .

09 Jun 2018 21:42:37
If he gets injur3d then what?

09 Jun 2018 21:51:53
Singh nonsense, give Lukaku proper service and he will score for fun. He scored 27 goals whilst feeding off scraps. Not sure what more you want. We need more goals from the players around him. Martial had a decent output but wasn’t played as regularly as we would have hoped. Jesse had a great spurtbut again no enough. And we had next to nothing from the right. The front 3 of Liverpool all scored plenty of goals, sharing the load. We need more from the likes of pogba as well. Lukaku is not the problem here. The problem is tactics to an extent and consistency of the wide players. Hopefully the additions should help this next season.

09 Jun 2018 21:59:26
Shaw now, eventually, has to be moved on i'm affraid.

09 Jun 2018 22:29:10
No matter what you guys say. Still don't think Lukaku has it in him to win the champs league and if he gets injured in the prem league we can't rely om the incosistent plahers like Martial and Rashford.

09 Jun 2018 23:42:50
Maybe the board are telling Jose they have invested in Shaw so make it work. There is a player in there without a doubt, but how much longer will he get?

10 Jun 2018 00:04:21
Please, Shaw is not going to step up, nor is he going to be a top player. How many chances is he going to have? Its pathetic and irritating that people still think he's going to be a top player. He's not as he's not prepared to put the work in. Sell him and watch as his career goes down the pan. I have zero patience with him.

If Dalot is as good as JM seems to think he is judging by his recent comments then I think JM might surprise a few by giving him more than a handful of starts -if the lad gets a chance and takes it then who knows?

Obviously its a new country/ league etc and a step up but I wouldn't rule it out. I do hope though all this talk of "he can play at either full back position" comes to nothing as in my opinion you are a right back or a left back, round pegs. round holes etc etc.
