I've got every faith in Koeman. What I don't have faith in is the strength in our squad.
We have no cover at right back, need at least 2 centre halves even before Stones goes (Jags looks to be finished with all these injuries he keeps picking up), left back is fine with Baines and then either Oviedo, Garbutt or Galloway as backup.
Centre of midfield is decidedly poor. Gibson and Barry are finished, McCarthy flatters to deceive, and Besic is erratic at best. Barkley can't play here as he is totally naive defensively.
We have 3 excellent right wingers and Mcgeady, but no left winger, and our striking options, quite frankly, scare the shit out of me. Lukaku gets crocked or decides he's too good for us and performs like the last 3 months or so of last season, we are up shit creek without a paddle.
This isn't being negative, just realistic after believing we had our best squad in 25 years before last season. We need to get some quality in ASAP, not squad fillers, players to go straight into the starting 11 to make a difference
On a bright note, we have some very good kids coming thru, Garbutt, Galloway, Davies, Holgate etc. Dowell looks like he needs 12 months in the championship to toughen up a bit til he's ready
