I expected transition last season but Im all 4 chalking this season up 2 transition. Get the young players in w/ some quality PL time not just Carling & go 4 whats needed in January window. I was glad when Rio came back but we really need 2 find his replacement. I think Smalling was a great buy & we need 2 field him more along in the season. TommyK has talked about possibly leaving, supposedly tired of waiting 4 VDS 2 retire but I don't see him as our #1 GK. But, if we can't get a quality GK in transfer then we'll have to make TommyK happy 4 now. Go cold turkey fielding Giggsy, Scholes & VDS in XI. It'll hurt but its time 2 move forward w/ new generation. We can't keep expecting talented youngsters 2 warm the bench. Its no longer realistic. I beleive this is the main reason behind Benzema & Ozil snubs.g@mb!t said:considering we have 4 players approaching retirement and of them 3 are still vital to the team, i think we are very much in transition
also with Rio so injury prone, the defense does need a solid GK behind them. hope we don't have a repeat of the Schmiechel retirement!!
With Neuer's contract running out and Neuer stating that he doesn't think he'll sign another, I think we could get him cheaper, a lot cheaper. Schalke will be keen to make some money before they completely lost out and he goes for free.deviledspam said:VDS was indeed great 4 us & he has an excellent connection & relationship w/ our backline. That part will be hard 2 replace. We need some1 young but quality w/ height & agility. Manuel Neuer has spoken of possibly joining MUFC if offered. He's been on our radar 4 awhile but recently read we're making a move for him but I don't know about spending 20mil though.
