Where do we go from here?

First and foremost we must stick with the manager, at least for the next three transfer windows to allow someone the chance to build a team. At the moment we have so many players liked by so many different managers it's impossible to form anything coherent.

The squad needs ripping apart. Ed002 mentioned five new players in the summer, I think that's a good start and a step in the right direction. A centre back, right back, defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder and right winger are clearly needed. That's phase one.

Phase two would be a rotation option at left back and a striker. Maybe even a keeper if Dave moves on.

Who would I like to see leave in the summer? Ideally, everyone. Realistically - Young, Valencia Smalling, Darmian, Jones, Rojo, Sanchez, Mata, Pogba and Lukaku. Yes, Pogba. His mind is elsewhere, his attitude embodies the team and he thinks he's far better than he actually is. I don't buy this 'he's better with better players around him' nonsense. He's sloppy, arrogant and slows the positionally undisciplined.

Ten out in the summer. Five in.

My preferences would be Wan-Bissaka, Koulibaly, Rodri, Bruno Fernandes and Sancho. However, realistically I think we will see Meunier/ Trippier, Milenkovic, Rice, Bruno Fernandes and Douglas Costa. I also think we desperately need a number 9. Icardi would be a car crash, I'd love Lewandowski or Cavani if the transfer fee was reasonable. If not Jovic, Andre Silva or Piatek.

Phase two clear out would see Matic, Fred (unless he improves second season) and Martial (attitude) .

Maybe Ed002 could comment on developments with Bruno Fernandes. Please could you let us know if he is indeed City bound? His numbers this season are phenomenal.

Would love to know your thoughts guys and if you heard anything about a new number 9?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City remain very keen on BF Fresh.}

It would be nothing short of a disaster if we allowed them to sign both Fernandes and Felix, one of whom I imagine replaces David Silva.

We are so find behind and that would compound the problem. Don’t see many other attacking midfield options who we could reasonable take.

Queue a ridiculous bid for Isco or Kroos no doubt.

{Ed025's Note - i think its time to concentrate on utd rather than what the noisy neighbors are doing fresh mate..

Also presuming the serious Madrid interest in Pogba is being reported correctly? I can’t see him being here for many more weeks - not that I care particularly.

Where do we go from here?

I say we follow city and liverpools recruitment policy where you get one good player with ability and then a second, third fourth etc.

Our recruitment has been poor and we are feeling the effect of short term recruitment over long term planning.

{Ed025's Note - very much so DSG, there just does not seem to be a definitive plan in recruitment or playing style mate..

05 May 2019 23:05:15
Agreed 25, very difficult to watch though. A well run world class club versus a mismanaged rubbish show.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that mate..

Thats exactly my point . The last two tim3s we tried taking players under their noses (Fred, Sanchez) look what happened to us.

We need to hoover our house first before worrying about their green lawn.

Singh not only those 2 look at what happened with jorginho, I would really steer clear of signing any city targets. Pep clearly knows his voodoo.

06 May 2019 10:05:35
We need to go back to basics. Young premier league proven preferably British players augmented with giving the academy a chance and topped off with a couple of top class signings from abroad.

Very true CSM but they might just get one right at the end!
