German Sky reporting about United was one hell of a battering. Mou an asshole, our football boring, first leg performance a disgrace, Pogba expensive, bad atmosphere at OT, average team expect De Gea. Half an hour show and not a single positive word.
Another midfielder is coming in surely imo. Needed a CM and a DM anyway. He takes the squad place of Carrick as DM and we hopefully add a more creative CM of the caliber of Verratti, Kroos, Niguez etc.
another solid display, makes me think we don't need to sign a Carrick replacement. Keeps improving and is learning quick. One day and if the managers instructions allow it, I think he is capable of passing the ball forward more often as well.
good first half display, not so good 2nd half. Very good result :-)
Must say the usually criticised defensive and passive approach from Mou paid off this time. Still I don't like us having just 25% possession. The number and way we score own goals really needs to a adressed!
A season defining must win game ahead with confidence high. Badly needed after that horrible first 70 mins at Selhurst Park.
Surely CM has to be adressed next. Not sure about Seri tough.
I think we need a Carrick replacement for DM and a box-to-box midfielder. Hopefully McTominay can develop in on of those. Therefore I'd only sign one, DM or CM. But that player should be absolutely top-drawer!
Saul NIGUEZ would be such but unfortunately he is an A. Madrid player through and through. VERRATTI would be another one but as much unavailable as Saul. FABINHO still an option for me too. I'd love to look at english player or at least british but only Dier comes to mind and he's not at the level we require.
Mou is after out of club Lassana Diarra to bolster midfield according to MEN?! Hope not! Didn't Mou only recently mention he wants to make McTominay his "Rashford" (compared to LVG), to make him world-class. Now, then he better starts playing him!
Snachez and Mkhitaryan pretty much the same age, Sanchez better quality. A shame with Miki as he is a wonderful footballer but he needs a coach who fully trusts him and gives him confidence. He doesn't seem to have any confidence by himself and then he is at the wrong club here. We shouldn't pay too much on top of a player swap if any, as Miki has the longer contract despite Sanchez being the higher profile player. That should setlle the difference in valuation.
Despite being it the correct decision to let Miki go (as long as Mou is here) I fear under Wenger me might be a top player but I easily prefer Sanchez.
Regarding wages I shouldn't care as any money spent on a player is better than going into their pockets. I still hope we are not that dump to make him the 4th best paid player, that would not be appropriate!
agree we had an overall good window. I think our squad still lacks an out and out winger of the highest caliber but I am happy for the season to come.
For the future there are always some task to not let the squad ageing:
After this season we will know if Shaw can make it or if should sign someone there. Valencia is 32, so we should start to look for a replacement
Fosu-Mensah looks good whenever he played so far. Think he will return a better player and claim a CB spot once back. with Tuanzebe alredy here we can rather sell than buy a CB in the future.
Wit Carrick in his last year and Fellaini the one to be replaced sooner rather than later there is definately a need for a CM in the next summer. I'd go for Dendoncker. Otherwise we are fine in that department for the next 1-2 seasons at least.
As mentioned a winger or two is a must in the future unless we convert to 3-5-2 in the long term. Griezmann with Ibra departing makes so much sense as he is a class apart most in Europe and can play all 3 front positions as well as no. 10. So him and Lemar, who is a very good dribbler & crosser, are my personal favorite players to be signed
