fozzboy:Sir Kones I have to agree with you. All I hear about is this kid Strootman...but I am a keen football fan if not an expert and I had never heard of him either. I did hear a Dutch football pundit on radio and he said that he was nowhere near ready for the premiership yet...let alone the missing link!! I am not saying he hasnt got potential but it is quite ridiculous the over hyping of this kid...probably started by his own agents!!
So, not to be a cynic, but is this just media hype or what?
Here's what I think:
Fletcher (whenever he's fully fit)
Giggs (sparingly used in CM)
Kagawa (sparingly used in CM)
Powell (sparingly used in CM)
Petrucci (young player to be integrated into the first team)
Pogba (young player to be integrated into the first team)
New signing (defensive-minded box-to-box midfielder to rotate with Carrick)
This is what I think will happen, though I doubt it.
In my opinion, it is vital that we have two defence minded midfielders, two attack minded midfielders and two or three back ups just encase any injuries were to occur.
My midfielders for next year would be:
Carrick - Defence minded centre midfielder
Strootman - Defence minded centre midfielder
Cleverley - Attack minded centre midfielder
Pogba - Attack minded centre midfielder(If he stays, otherwise keep Anderson)
Scholes - Back Up
Giggs - Back Up
Fletcher - Back Up (if he recovers from ilness)
Due to Anderson's injury problems, athough I think he's a top player, when fit, I think SAF could sell him in Summer.
Would you be happy with these options? What would yours be?
