Ken makes a great point down the page by saying we need to get rid of 8/ 9 players and go with youth the rest of the season, providing the next manager with a clean slate.
If this means the end of Jose before the season is out, well then fair enough. But it's about time this club got back to its core principles and values.
There is a few players coming through with massive potential.
Instead of buying a centre half, why not try and bring Tuanzebe back from loan? Progressing nicely I believe at Villa. Bring him back and play him.

We also have Chong who looks a big big talent, can only hope we see him very soon. A front 3 of Chong, Rashford and Martial would be exciting.

We also have youngsters like Garner, Laird, Gomes, Barlow. Now I'm not saying any of these lads are ready, or anywhere near ready, but Rashford took his chance. Some of these lads have a lot of potential. I think it's clear champions league is going to be tough to qualify for, and we don't have the tools to win it this year either imo.

Don't forget Mason Greenwood. Anyone who's watched him will know this kid is destined for big things.

Now I'm not saying we need to throw them all in at once, but I'd rather watch us start giving these younger lads a chance than watch some of the same players, who at times don't look like they care at all. I mean that regardless of who is, or isn't in charge. We need to start planning for the future now, and what better way to do so than start believing in our acadamey again.

All very well but a run in a losing toxic team can be devastating for a young player. Gomes and Chong in an FA cup game here and there makes sense dependent on oppposition- Greenwood looks like he knows where the net is . a great trait for any forward, usually sticks with them through their career. you either have it or you dont.

I partially agree, however you can't run before you walk.

If we came out and said yeah this seasons a write off so we're going to play younger players then I'd applaud it. We need a massive clear out. There's only about 10-15 players i'd keep out of the current squad an 20% of that is goalkeepers.

The thing is that we don’t really have a load of players coming through with massive potential. Our academy is in drastic need of modernisation and investment, and over the last two decades I’ve seen more than enough ‘world class’ academy players struggle to get anywhere close to the top level.

The reality is that we already have young players with massive potential in the first team, who are failing to perform at their best. A rot has set in throughout the club from the owners to the manager to the players (even to fans like me) . Either something changes, or we will end up permanent also rans.

Maybe we should start with Lukaku in defence? If the ball comes anywhere near him it will bounce 20 yards away.

What 8-9 players? are u guys playing fifa? 😁 what happened after all ken was advocate of mourinho saying how he has improved from Moyes and LVG despite spending over 400M and smashing wages lol.

There will never be another class of 92. The game has changed. It is now completely internationalized. We need a new approach appropriate to the age. After 3 managers in succession, none of whom pursue a more modern approach and a completely shambolic transfer policy coming on top of a failure to replace top players with those of similar quality during the last years of SAF's reign, and a board that knows little to nothing about the game itself, we are now far behind the top teams of England, let alone Europe.

It is hard to see this turning around any time soon.
