Yeah I agree with all that. Neither of our keepers fully convinces me, but they could come good. a holding midfielder seems most important since we don’t really have one, except Matic, but Ole insists on playing two people in that position most of the time.JoelfuckingGlazer wrote: ↑2 years ago I still think we have some big gaps.
Big question marks over the keeper spot, which is scandalous given how much we’re shelling out. I can see the sense in going after Trippier, and we should be able to get him for 15-20m.
Then, we’re missing a top drawer CDM and in a years time we’ll need a top striker. Assuming Varane comes in, we’re still looking at needing to spend 200m on top of that over the next 12 months.
I do think we have some quality youth though. Hannibal, Elanga, Pellestri, Shoretire, Diallo. They all have a shot.
We’ll also need another CB soon, because Ole only seems to rate Maguire, Varane, and Lindelof. An injury to Maguire or Varane and we’re on thin ice again.
I feel like Ole might be shortchanging Tuanzebe and Dalot, but he’s the manager, so that’s how it is.
The club has gotten Ole a whole new team now. This keeps happening because the club keeps appointing managers with totally different styles to the previous manager, so they want to change all the players. Hopefully this rebuild is something that lasts finally. I think the squad looks better than it has for a decade, except midfield.
