I feel we have a better squad now, than we have ever had, all we are missing is a couple of strikers..

but it looks worse than what it is, as we have no strikers, yes we need a new lb and a cb, but that is magnified as we can't keep the ball at the other end of the pitch.

our starting 11 is still lopsided, not Unsworths fault tho.
Did you read through this before you sent it?  "A better squad now than we have ever had" Then "we are missing a couple of strikers, a left back, a centre back"  A good laugh that!!

Not even close.

Stones Barkley Lukaku were all 40-50m rated players in the spine of the team a few years ago, all either playing CL or soon to be now.

Plus jags Baines Coleman Barry a year younger.

That team would fucking bum this one everywhere
Unless of course Lukaku had one of his many many off games ,Barkley wasn't playing like he did against Newcastle for 45 mins two years or so ago and Stones got caught out trying to stride forward like we have all seen him do ...then id agree to a certain extent .😛😜we may well get bummed.

Our squad is fucking woeful but I just can't see us going down . It will require some of the younger players living up to their potential sooner rather than later though . The likes of Williams , Jagileka , Baines are just not going to rediscover their form or legs and will just heap the pressure on Kenny and Holgate not to mention the shell shocked Pickford . There is no creativity in the side without Barkley and the pace we have in Lookman and Bolasie is inexperienced or just plain erratic . Coleman is sorely missed . Schniederlin is capable of so much more but is he arsed ?  Whoever takes over has a massive task that's a certainty .

Rom's bad games could still always turn on a dime at any moment...and the opposition had to mark him like he was going to transform into SuperRom regardless.  He always opened the pitch up for everyone else that way.

but look at the number tens we have.. choice of nearly 5!! and atleast 4 wingers!! woohooo not to mention the cm area where we have another 5-6 players..

the squad over all is more solid. even tho we have lost our main goalscorer and our cbs are aging.. wouldnt be as bad if Mori wasnt injured.. lol.

but yeah squad wise/all over the pitch we have depth.. shame we have no depth for the positions that matter.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

& Unsworth kicking ass.

The kids are too inexperienced to be relied on and many of the senior players are past their best.

Its a perfect storm and one that any decent Club management would've seen coming and addressed.

The Rooney question is a right quandry
In a way, his playing 10 is totally negating Sigs, rendering our record signing almost useless
BUT
Wazza has been one of our best players when on the pitch and is our only source of goals so far!
So do u drop the one lad scoring goals, to fit it another who hasnt kicked a ball for us since he joined

siggy should be getting no where near our team as he's offered fuck all aside from a couple of decent free kicks, rooney is more productive.

Defo not
He's been the main source of goals and chances but hey, he drops off into positions he shouldn't

No one seems to question why he does that tho

I mean it might be a problem were everyone else playing well and being stunted by him dropping too deep.

But given how woeful we are, complaining about this is straying towards moaning about Lukakuís first touch again.

Yes, not ideal, but a long way from being the first thing to sort out.

I had way less tolerance for Rooney's roaming during the Koeman free-for-all than I do now. When the ball was sailing over his head repeatedly, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to accommodate him, especially given his physical decline.

With an actual plan in possession, we need Rooney on the pitch. He's our best passer and the player most likely to make something happen from open play. You saw it against Chelsea. When Unsworth took him off, it really loosened our grip on the game and allowed Chelsea to breathe a bit.

I'm not a particular fan of what Rooney does these days, but I think you have to recognize he is one of the few that can create/score so until we bring in better players he's going to have a place in the side to some extent.

I'd much rather it be him up top or at least playing around the final third more when Barkley is back though. Goals are a rare commodity in our squad so players who can score should be put in positions which give them the best chance of doing so.
