I'd expect us to replace our loan players with more loan players next season, or keep Deulofeu and 3 others
Barry will likely sign on a permanent deal for free
Martinez has some very sound reasoning behind his loan dealings which I've completely bought into, they are there to bolster the core of players we already have, which this set do. Next season maybe we'll get even better loan players?
We have a strong core of Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Alcaraz, Stones, Distin, McCarthy, Mirallas, McGeady, Pienaar, Gibson, Barkley and Oviedo so when you add potentially Barry and 4 others to that you have a VERY strong 17 for matchdays
Yes we lack depth at times and injuries will hit us like they have recently, but we are not cash-rich like Chelsea or Man Utd - both of whom we've beaten this season, by the way.
I'd much rather we waited until summer and got the players in who would do a job for us next season than waste our money on players who won't improve us in January.
We have lost 3 games all season, and we'll lose more, but for a manager's first season at a club where quite a lot of fans were dreading him taking charge, that's a huge step up from the previous manager who many dreaded leaving.
We gave Moyes 11 years, why is it that some people are spitting feathers after less than 11 months with Martinez in the job?
