I was thinking about our squad a couple of days ago. Assuming (hopefully incorrectly) that we make no signings how do we look,
Coleman Keane jags Baines
(Kenny) (Mori holgate)
(baningime, Schneiderlin, rooney)
Lookman sigurdson walcott
(Klaasen, bolasie, Vlasic, mirralas)
(Niasse, dcl, sandro)
I think with more confidence Keane and klaasen could prove useful. Holgate May improve enough to make jags a decent back up. And we have no back up for Baines. Defensive mid is ok the 3 behind the striker is a good mix of pace and craft and tosun has impressed.
That side, with guidance, motivation and fitness would keep us were we are, maybe push 6th if Arsenal’s decline continues.
I think we need to prioritise the backline in the summer. A quality left back to replace/back up Baines is a must and at least 1/2 center backs. Beyond that I’d say a striker to replace/back up tosun would be helpful.
