    The best thing we can do is identify when a player is becoming too comfortable and not be sentimental when it comes to either buying competition for them or replacing them altogether. It's hard to say who will fall into that category but there is usually at least a couple.

    as much as I hate united as much as the next guy, Fergies biggest strength in his early days was offloading players who looked to be at the top of their game for them to flop elsewhere. Hughes, Robson, Inch, Irwin and many more. It was when he started to hold on to players such as Giggs, Scholes etc that the decline started to set in.

    Yaya is retiring at the end of the season, I expect Serg to be sold for big money and us get a fair priced replacement. The following season it will probably be Ferd and Silva. It will hurt, we will feel he is making a mistake but Pep is building a dynasty here

    A player who can play across the front three, and a player who can rotate with Fernandinho. Hoping for Leon Bailey and Fred this summer.

    I think the coming seasons we'll see more academy players Integrated into the squad, players who hopefully will be good enough to step up into the squad and stay there.

    Surely this is right. Never sit on your laurels.
    To improve the squad, we need a striker of the Lewandofski (sp?) type and a DM to cover for and succeed Ferna.
    After that we will need........and so it goes on.

    Most important thing is getting another top-class DM. We will also need to buy a new striker soon with Sergio possibly leaving either this summer or next. Outside of that, there are other areas we could buy but they would be as back up players.
