The real work is to come. We stabilized and returned Europa League comfort zone, but can we kick on from there? We've not done anything yet.We are a long, long way from the teams who finished in the top 3 today. You have to expect the likes of Man United will be spending big money again too.Can we attract and retain (the few we have of that level) players who will allow us to compete for a CL spot?It's a big ask recruitment wise. Potentially a radically different team awaits us at the start of next season depending on how the Lukaku/Barkley situations resolves themselves. New Goalkeeper, potentially 2 new CBs, new LB for Coleman's injury, need option for Baines too. That's just the defence.Schneiderlin, Gueye and Davies in the midfield but beyond that who knows. Bolasie to return at some point. Mirallas has to be replaced, probably our most ineffective area of the pitch attacking wise. We definitely need more goals from midfield, Koeman is not wrong there but we're missing a couple of players if that is what he wants.Then while I hope Lukaku stays, we either need 1 forward who can contribute meaningfully or two.Well stated. I share the exact same sentiment. A major rebuild is needed. It is also a good time to let Moshiri use this new supposed financial muscle we now possess. This off season should really show a statement of intent in the rebuilding process.
Koeman said he will be speaking to the board tomorrow and will make a statement about the Barkley and Lukaku situations
Good.Then he should go on a quick holiday and this time come back in time to start planning the next season.
83 days til the season starts, weekends without footy are shite
Get shut of Kone, McCarthy, Niasse, Cleverly, one of the goalies, and the Irishman on loan at Preston, forget his name, Jags or Williams, Barry. Some with a big thank you, others sorry we ever laid eyes on you but all by bye, we are moving on. Probably missed someone out.
I am excited, as I believe Koeman and Walsh will have their targets well lined up already, and a clearout of the dross and mentally weak is long overdue
I think this is key. For the past few years we've been weak as piss from top down. Takes a while for this to be eradicated.
