I think its necessary to buy every year to show your intent and to freshen
things up. Fergie also has to make sure all the players are kept on their toes
regarding fighting for a first team place.

We have Manucho to come in and players like Campbell and/or Wellbeck could
get their chance. Though I still think we have to buy a quality striker (hunt, Berb
or Eto'o perhaps)

The daSilva twins will be integrated into the squad slowly but
surely, but they will make their marks further down the line.

We have the likes of Simmo, Pique and Evans (if he comes back) to start making
some apps. here and there. Nev and Silvestre will also be back in business.

So defensively I feel we are covered although the prospect of adding a player
of Lahm's ability could be too hard to turn down.

Midfield- Central midfield we are sorted. Wingers-Up till recently I would have
said we were ok.....but hear me out.

Giggs is a legend but I think we ALL know his time is coming to an end over the
next season or 2.
Nani has yet to convince me despite his huge number of assists and occasional
wondergoal. He is a bit of a headless chicken and his final pass/shot often leaves
a lot to be desired.
Park will graft all day for you but shouldnt he be doing a lot more offensively?

Those 3 would be squad members for me next season. That leaves Ronaldo
who certainly does his bit (40 goals ffs) .
Im wondering if the likes of Anderson could fill in on the left and Hargo on the
right. Fergie might try and play them there.
but a winger like Ribery would be the ultimate. I would have loved to see him
at United before going to Munich.

In goals we are flush so in conclusion the only player we REALLY need is a
world class striker. We can be hugely competitive again with the squad we have.
Sure 'If it aint broke dont fix it'.:)

I think that Fraizer C., Wayne R., Carlos T. and my favourite Louis S. are potent enough.
I like Saha as well but if he's never going to play.....what can you do with him?
I just think we need to add more quality up front. Say Rooney or Tevez get
injured then things get tricky.
You forgot to mention Manucho who I feel could go on to do well at United.

Agree with most of it, except the wingers part. This is only Nani's first season after all, we can't expect miracles of him. We've seen flashes of what he is capable of doing.
Nani will come good next season, i'm sure of it.
I hope your right. Tbh Im still well annoyed with Nani.
But we are manchester United, we should have a world class player in
EVERY position. Nani has the potential to become great but he is a fair bit
off if Im being honest. Giggs is winding down and Park will never be a world
beater. Thats my only concern....Ronaldo is our only top top winger.
When Chelsea won the league they had 4 quality wingers, SWP, Duff, Robben
and Cole.
I just think if we lose Ronaldo to injury or whatever we lose a lot of the
penetration on the flank/s.
I dont particularly think we need a winger but its an area we could look at.

I said before that we only need a striker. If anyone else comes it will be a

covered most of it jazz , but nobody can read fergies mind he will probably surprise us all in the summer
he usually does surprise us yes....
The transfer merry go round does infuriate me at times.
I guess we have more important things to worry about in the meantime, like
Wigan on sunday and the CL final........
Worry about that now and then spent the summer speculating about
a million players.:rolleyes:
