    Teams that were on target to get 80 plus points, and maybe win 3 trophies don’t need overhauls, especially when their best defender is fit again. Fine tuning is all that’s needed.

    Some big gaps in the side once Sane and Silva leave added to the issues we have had at CB and LB ths season. I'd say we need 4 starting 11 calibre players this summer who can come in firing. Not players who need 1or 2 seasons to develop and settle in, players who come in and make an impact immediately. The kind of summer when we brought in Laporte, Bernardo, Ederson etc or Toure, Silva and Edin. Feels a little bit like this will be a crossroads summer for us in terms of setting us up for the next 4/5 years.

    Bravo - leaving needs replacing
    Zinchenko - doesnt have a position hes taking a spot up
    Mendy - I'd keep, but is he reliable?
    Nico - will be leaving either this year or next
    Stones - id keep but will pep.
    Walker - coming to end of career maybe 2 more seasons.
    Cancelo - does he want to be hear?
    Gundogan- 2 years left in him
    Sane - doesnt want to be here
    D.silva - contracts up
    Ferna - 1 more season
    Kun - 1 maybe 2 more seasons.
    Mahrez - probably 2 seasons.

    How do you fine tune this list of players? I admire your noble views on spending money but this team is coming to end. We will have 8/9 1st team players from this squad in 2 years time. Like I said I hope stones and mendy find some consistency but that's still 10/11 players to replace.

    Braaf, doyle, garcia and braaf look decent. It would be an amazing achievemment but unlikely all of them will make it to the required level.

    Where do you find the replacements in your ideal world? Free transfers?

    agree with this. If Liverpool get Koulibaly they would have two of the best CBs in the world playing next to each other. Disaster scenario for us and the league. We’d stand no chance.

    If we want to win the league we need to sign a top CB. That’s the priority.

    Bravo already replaced Steffen
    Zinchenko will probably go
    Angelino will probably go
    Mendy will stay bring in a new left back
    O
    tamendi will go bring in a new centre back
    Stones will stay
    Garcia and Fernandinho Laporte gives us 5 centre backs
    Walker and Cancelo gives us right back for 2 years worry about that then not this summer we’ve already got Couto
    Silva and Gundogan going replaced by Foden and new midfielder probably Aouar
    Sane don’t think will be replaced by a winger if anything a young froward that can play central when Aguero goes
    Aguero as above.
    Mahrez cross that bridge when we come to it

    So this summer think we’ll sign left back, centre back and midfielder for the first team maybe a young forward too. That’s about it, not what I’d call an overhaul.

    we need to bolster if certain heroes are leaving us. for us to win it we are stacked against all odds, media proves this. We know how hard it was two years back, that s where we need to be.
