Re: Agreement reached for Lindelof

Sat Jun 17, 2017 2:07 pm

I don't know much about this lad but will trust Jose's decision and there is a lack of good CBs at the moment.
So Lindelof plus Bailley first choice. Rojo back up but I would also keep Smalling as 4th choice, Jones does not fill me with any confidence.

What we need is first and foremost a ball winning CM, we cannot rely much on Carrick at his age and need someone alongside Herrera and Pogba who can win balls, Pogba looked so much better with kante playing for France.

Then we need a winger, a striker and possible LB really depending on whether Jose can see any future for Shaw.

Do we need to replace Depay? We've plenty of players who can play on the wings.

Disagree - well, we have plenty of players who can play there, but not very well. The only one of our players who looks comfortable​ as a wide forward is Martial.

Rashford has a couple of good games on the wing here and there, but he seems a lot more comfortable as a centre forward. Micki likes to come inside, so does Mata - neither of them play like natural wingers or wide forwards; still not sure what Lingard is, what he's definitely not is a first choice winger for a top level side.

Well, Depay was crap there. So are we replacing him, or any of the players we currently have?

Would it be possible for you to name these "plenty of players" who can play on the wing
I assume that two arms and two legs qualify for a winger in your book

I personally would suggest that wingers of the current ability that say Beckham,Ronaldo,Giggs possessed might well be required to mount an attack on any serious trophy
Jose spent the last 3 months of last season complaining how thin his squad was
However if you think this squad has both plenty of players and plenty of wingers who am i or Jose to suggest otherwisw

Just out of curiosity can you confirm that there are actually two wings
One on the left and one on the right
You might name Martial as a left winger even though he isn't but you will struggle to name even a hint of a right winger unless you are thinking of moving Valencia back up or sticking Wazza out on the wing
The Chinese would still buy his shirts on the wing btw

So Baily and Lindelof will be regulars and with smalling leaving for tots, jones is what we'll be left with as a backup? Why don't we go for 1 already established defender to have a boost at the back? Like one mature player who can dictate the game.

Yeah rojo came through strong in the middle of the season. I'd expect we probably need another centre half if Jones and smalling are to go
