Are we done?

Fri Aug 12, 2016 8:38 am

I hope that we're not. Need another CB IMO. And possibly a right back. Not convinced by Valencia, and don't think Jose rates Darmian much.

Jose reportedly told by the board he has to sell next if he wants to buy further.

I like what we have. Which other CB would be a good buy?

If reports that Fosu signed a new contract, then we have a good RB. Valencia has been doing well and if he continues with his assists, then I'm good

Cant see us bringing anyone else in unless we sell - which im sure we will.

I do think we need an experienced CB to sort out the back line - a Godin type would be a great pick up but getting him or others will be tough

I would definitely go for Garay. He's top class, highly experienced and wouldn't cost us a fortune. It's quite astonishing he was available for years yet he's about to get overlooked by a fourth United manager in a row despite having constantly been connected by the media to a potential move to OT. Given his constant displays for club and country it's quite funny (yet a bit dubious) that none of the top clubs ever considered buying him.

Makes sense. Can't fault them for asking for that

Varane is the CB I would love to see, but that ain't happening.

We are done. Bailley and Smalling for CB and Blind for backup. I'll be surprised if we buy anyone.

I would like to see an experienced central defender - Ashley Williams would have been a steal.

It's being reported a lot of places that Jose wants another experienced CB. Smalling and Bailly seem a bit similar in style, so a Vidic type CB to go with them would be ideal. After those two, it's basically a bunch of makeshift CBs as backup. Personnally I can see, and I am really hoping, Jones is shown the door this summer. And I like Smalling a lot, but he really shined playing in LVG very defensive, very organized team, I am not convinced he will shine as much when he doesn't have the same level of protection.

I hope he doesn't. We still have Fosuh Mensa, who has big potential.

Looks to be a good fullback to me.

At some point in his career it would not surprise me if Mensa is played as a defensive midfielder.

I cant quite understand how Jones is at this club. By all accounts, it looks like Jose wanted him as the starting cb going into the tour, and what a stinker of a pre season he had

I disagree. Maureen probably wanted to give him one last chance and he blows it.

Jones appearance stats tell their own story. He's done. I'm not sure if he'd be replaced, aside from within.

Well we certianly don't need another striker. There are rumours of Babosa but I think Rashford has what it takes to cut it this season he is going to be a superstar and he has the right brand of players around him to develope.

I think we should be done given the size of the squad. the quality was always an issue more so than quantity, and we have brought in four top quality players.

certain squad players could still be replaced, but keyword is replaced. do not need to buy until we have gotten rid of some. obviously we could use another quality, experienced defender but we have too many right now. if we do find takers for Jones, Young, etc, only then I think we should look for replacements.

After it became apparent that we had landed the "Fab Four" - my apologies to any of the Beatles still alive - my thinking was that we still needed an experienced central defender to add depth and organization to a youngish back line. I did not think that Blind would be able to fulfill that role and I didn't think that Mourinho would be open to using Blind as a limited defender and the deep play maker. However Mourinho is a true pragmatist and if something is working he doesn't care who's idea it was just as long as it works.

Barring injury's I think we have the squad we need, at least until the winter window and then we can start the speculation all over again.
