In an ideal world, what would you guys think of a midfield three of Fosu-Mensah, Saul and Savic? Out with immobile Matic and Fellaini and the inconsistent Pogba.

Agree3 Disagree1

Fosu-Mensah hasn’t proved himself yet.

Pogba annoys out of me but in a mobile three he looks a different player.

Savic is a luxury we can’t afford. The defence from right back to both centre backs needs reworking, the right attacking position does also and I’d swap out Lukaku too.

I'd give him the chance to prove himself at United mate, in his favoured/ preffered position rather than out on loan at struggling clubs being played at RB.

Ed002 has said multplie times that Pogba belongs in Spain or Italy, he's played in a midfield 3, a two, alongside Herrera/ Carrick in his 1st season, Matic Herrera last season, Fellaini at times, how much more help does he need? He needs to go.

Savic is affordable, if we get rid of Pogba, he'll be much more effective for Utd than Pogba, more rounded as a player, going forward he may not be as talented as Pogba but he is still excellent. Can also do a job defensively, something PP lacks massively. Get in another manager and i'm sure we'll still be seeing the same Pogba.

Saul all day long, shame he could be playing for us now had things worked out differently.

Fosu-Mensah should be given a run, however I suspect it will be at RB if it happens. Midfield at a top club is a tricky place to learn your trade, very unforgiving.

Milinkovic-Savic looked a beast last season, yet this year he looks a little off the pace, burned out? opposition got his number? change in system? or just a purple patch last season? I think he needs to work through his form and get himself back to his best before anyone makes a move for him. Still young, still developing. He needs to learn how to rediscover his form if he is going to be a top top player. It's best we wait to see if he can learn that lesson before breaking the bank and heaping the pressure of expectation on him.

I quite like the look of several players closer to home. Andreas Pareira should be given a run, Herrera and Fred are all talented players who have qualities we lack in our current set up.

Beyond our own squad looking around the EPL is a good bet, they know the league are settled in England and are often better at adjusting and performing than many of the fancy names we don't see play every week.

Wilfried Ndidi always impresses me, Maybe not the best going forward, but an exceptionally hard worker, tackles well, reads the game well breaks up the oppositions attacks and keeps things simple. Could be an excellent foil alongside someone more creative.

Ruben Neves looks like he could become a great player, often is Wolves best player. Controls games, excellent passing, good shot on him and great understanding of the game.

{Ed004's Note - Any further signings we make should be with a set style of play in mind. Ideally we start going for mobile and techinically brilliant signings instead of having to rely on Matic, Fellaini etc. Because of that I would rule out the likes of Milinkovic and Neves. Additionally, Fosu Mensah most likely won't make it at utd in the long run imo}

Pogba needs to tske fingers out of his backside and move back to spain or Italy.

Matic is not as good as what he was. Our cbs are either crocked or not good enough yet.

We have one world class player in De Gea and the rest are either too young or not good enough to be in the team.

W3 definitely have an good team to be in the top 4 but not a team that can you titles.

Try and swap pogba for varratti, the type of player we've been missing a long time. Is Sarri a fan of Kante? doesn't seem like he wants to use him in his preferred position, instead playing Jorghino there. that's my xmas list anyway, don't think santa will deliver!

Has anyone actually been watching TFM while he's been on loan? Don't know why people think he should be a starter for us.

02 Dec 2018 14:05:03
You think so Ed004? I hope TFM makes it at Utd, think he can be brilliant for us.

{Ed004's Note - He certainly wont make it in midfield. He could be a good option at right back if he irons out a few flaws. Hes very rash, inconsistent and positionally poor. However, they are all things that can be worked on. Hes very quick, good on the ball, solid in the air and hard worker. Ideally we would have him and Dalot competing for our right back spot next season}
