I think it’s safe to say that it’s probably time to reshuffle, but that will depend on how much dollar we can use on new faces, and how much we make selling those we need to move on, I can easily name 3 or 4 who need shipping out, the front three originals in Mo Mane & Bobby are probably coming to the end of their tenure, but not just yet,
I think we’re ok at the back, maybe a RWB to keep Trent honest, not sure Neco will return, and Joe is only temporary so maybe someone like Lamptey to come in, Midfield is the weakest part for me, with Jimmy, Hendo, and Thiago already over 30, so fresher legs is a must, Bellingham would be ideal but will BvB sell now Goldilocks is joining the fraudsters, still not convinced Curtis can take another step up and become the player we all want to see, it’s far too early for us to decide on Harvey, he’s been managed properly and will be released when Jürgen feels he’s ready,
Up top needs boosting too, young lad Carvahal from Fulham is full of promise so he has a free season for me to acclimatise/bed in, I don’t think we need to ship out any of Mo, Mane or Bobby just yet, but we might need to look at a different way of attacking, so maybe a Kane type striker will give us that, but Kane will cost mega millions being England’s golden boy, so maybe look at Raul Jimenez at Wolves, before his head injury he was banging them in and this season he was getting back to somewhere near his best, he’s what 22 and with our coaching and Jürgen’s nous he could be worth a shout,
This is all pie in the sky hypothetics but food for thought all the same, there isn’t a lot wrong within our squad, just needs freshening up, I don’t think the likes of Ox, Taki, Jimmy, will feature much at all and there is a massive Question mark on Naby lad too, jeez, Naby, so frustrating, there is a player in there, we’ve all seen him, but there’s also his donkey side too, and we really can’t afford hangers on, so perhaps ship him out while he’s worth decent dollar,
With Divock already with Milan that’s 5 players that need replacing, also heard whispering’s of Mane and Bayern M but that’s probably click bait, like Mo he won’t get anything better than he has right now, so why move ?
Nobody seen Diaz come in in January so I’m sure Jürgen has certain targets he would like to work with that none of us are privy too, one thing is for sure though, with him signing a new deal we can be sure the rebuilding continues, and we can all get excited by that alone, it’s already in motion with Diaz, Konate, Harvey, Carvahal already here, and of course perhaps two/ three academy prospects too.
Guess we’ll all have to wait and see what happens in the next 3 Months !!
