I agree and thats why im worried about our transfer policy this season as we seem to be selling all of our first team players
Who all have we sold? Anyone that goes will go because the new DOF and manager don't see them in their plans and I'm perfectly comfortable with that.
I also dont know what other teams sells their leading goalscorer 2 seasons on a trot and doesnt have a replacement in before!
We were never going to keep Lukaku and even as a fan of Rooney and was happy he came back I think it's pretty clear that he didn't have much left in him at this level and was going to be surplus to requirement so getting his £150k a week wages off the books is good business. You've also no idea whether we have anyone lined up but even if we don't, losing Rooney won't have a huge impact on things.
We've a new management team in who will want to assess the squad and no doubt have their own players in mind but will also be mindful that we shouldn't go through another messy summer like last year. There's also a world cup going on which usually slows a summer window down a bit and not many other clubs are making big moves at the moment. People need to stop stressing, we're going through another summer of change, only this time the signs are we're going to do it in a professional, methodical manner rather than just panic and throw money around. We need to clear out players before we can then "strengthen our squad" again people are just going have to accept that and be patient.
