Pienaar as got to be a must, just makes us tick. Drenthe for free, im humming and arring over that one?. Can be a real threat when on his game, full of pace, tricks and unpredictable, but then can be so frustrating when he easily loses the ball or miss places a pass or if he goes down easily or is even fouled he doesn't get back up straight away. And plus the wages come into it!.
Up front i wouldn't be sure what to do either?. I like Stracq as he's full of effort and does link play well and can get a goal or 2 but i think he's not quite good enough to be a number one striker so maybe another loan deal for him.
Rodallega could be a good shout on a free to bring in and keep Jelavic on his toes.
I'd like to see us give Coleman a chance at RB if he's ready as Neville is too old and Hibbert's distribution is shocking, at defending you cant fault him but in this day and age you need to be good both ways and he's only good defensively and is a weak link going forward. If Coleman isn't up to it defensively then we need to look out for someone, maybe there's someone out there on a free we could sign?.
In the centre of midfield were fine i think. Gibbo and Felli are going from strength to strength and there's Rodwell, Francisco Junior and Wallace in there as back up or to break through. Cahill is starting to show signs of his old self but his going to be a year older, possibly a yard slower and we all know his limitations technically so maybe that's the position we have to look at, off the striker, but we have Barkley who could play there IMO but it's wether Moyesy sees him there or wether he really does come on next season?.
LB were ok till Baines gets injured. Garbutt and Bidwell are out on loan right now but wether there showing enough potential to make it premier league wise i don't know?. Pranjic of Bayern Munich, who we supposedly tried to sign in January, can play LB, aswell as LW & CM, is going to be on a free this summer, maybe we could bring him in?.
At CB i think were fine aswell. For me, Jags and Heitinga should be are preferred central pairing with Distin as back up on the bench after he's signed his years extension and the likes of Duffy and Dier waiting in the wings in reserve and ready to break through.
As with every summer, it all depends on finance and if we can sell the likes of Yobo, Mucha, Joao Silva and get McFadden off the books then maybe we can offer deals to the likes of Drenthe, Rodallega, Pranjic and sign Pienaar permanently?!.
Me personally i'd sell Rodwell if there was any takers but i doubt there is and he wouldn't be valued highly by clubs due to his form and injuries this season but if we could even get something from 8 to 14 million for him then i'd take it if we could use some of that to sign the ones ive mentioned above and maybe one or 2 more squad fillers?!.
