With Mr Rooney absent for the recent defeat against City and Mr Tevez running
himself into the ground week after week, add to this the fact that Vidic although
not lacking in effort last Sunday is not really cut out to be a striker, and you
would be right in assuming that right now we are not too well endowed in the
striker department.

Danny Welbeck may/may not get a chance to show us what he is made of in the
Cup tie with Les Arse. Apart from Rooney, Tevez and Welbeck we do have Saha
but how long will he stay on his feet before making a swift exit stage left for the
treatment room again !!

All this worry has forced Fergie to re-apply for a work permit for Manucho. After
shining like a bright star in the recent ACN how we could do with him right now.
That was not possible due to the problems with governmental paperwork etc etc.

I've been praying for us to buy a striker for some time now.

But it might be unnecessary. Maybe Fergie has seen in Welbeck and Manucho two
guys who will solve the problem already.

Surely this is not good news for Louis though …

Welbeck, Manucho, Saha … ?

What will happen over the next 6 months I wonder …

We really need 4 top strikers for the start of next season.
We have Rooney, Tevez and Manucho looks good enough to feature.
That leaves Saha, Wellbeck and a possiblle summer signing (you never know with transfer speculation but Id love either Benzema, Berbatov or even Huntelaar)

Im sure that Wellbeck and Manucho will be introduced slowly to get them used to it, but whether they succeed remains to be seen. I do think we have unearthed a gem in the form of Manucho. Strong, quick, good on the ball, great shot....complete package maybe?

For Saha to stay next season and beyond, we all know what he has to do. Start playing regularly and scoring goals. If he fails to do this then he could be out the door.

We need 4 top strikers who show good form week in week out.
It remains to be seen who 'the 4' will be, but they all have to play well to get a starting spot.

Rooney and Tevez will remain our first two strikers til one of leaves :D

Wellbeck is an amazing quality, but it will still be a few more years before he is pushing for a regular first team slot. Could be out of his depth, but we won't know unless he plays.

Manucho looked a class act in the Africa cup. Think he will be happy sitting on the bench.

Saha can go away.

Buy Huntleaar in the summer!
