Tinkering our squad for the future


Recommended Posts

This is probably a bit early, but then again the transfer market just opened.

Currently the season is halfway and we are tied first with City. Although our first XI is arguably better than theirs, our bench options are not. With the FA cup coming up and the CL returning soon how can we effectively rotate without dropping significantly in quality? Im pretty sure Salah will be going out on loan so we will most likely add another winger. Marco Reus would be ideal, but i would be very surprised we can land him in this transfer window.

Aside from Reus wich winger would you like to come in?

Another point i would like to bring up is changing our setup with Cesc as our Nr.10. Pogba would be a dream signing then as our box-to-box midfielder. That way Cesc will have less defensive work to do, an area he doesn't really excell at. I like Fabregas in the pivot, just not a against bigger teams. Our midfield has already been bullied pretty hard against City and Tottenham. I really like Oscar, but i still find him pretty lightweight for the bigger matches (and i doubt he will get much stronger). That way we can still rotate our CAM without dropping severely in quality.

To be completely honest, i think signing Pogba will have a bigger impact on our game than a new right-winger (though we obviously need a new option).

The back four is another problem, but mainly a disciplinairy one for me (Ivanovic bombing forward constantly).

Any suggestions/opinions? Or did i play a bit to much of football manager to be realistic.
