still think your defence is weak. rojo/jones/smalling isn't going to stop anyone and your best fullbacks are very attacking.

just score more goals, i guess

Pretty impressed with who Hull have managed to get this window tbh; Ben Arfa on loan, Diame, Gaston Ramirez and Abel Hernandez (who I admittedly don't know much about).

But my favourite transfer of the window is Frimpong to FC Uta.

i wonder what lvg will do now. hes got an incredible squad. hes added shaw and rojo to the left side and blind can play at the back but fairly sure hat is not why he got him.

wouldn't worry too much about left full or right full. shaw, smalling, jones, rojo, blind, valencia,, even young can do a job there. but who is in the middle?

blackett, evans, rojo, jones, smalling, blind - any two or three at the cb positions. not one outstanding player there at the moment. maybe lvg has other ideas......

delighted for wellbeck going to arsenal. wish him all the best. he'll do well there.

My ideal starting XI now would be:

de Gea
Rafael, Rojo, Jones, Shaw
Herrera, Blind, Di Maria
Rooney, Falcao, Mata

Think they'd give anyone a game right now, and with Carrick, Januzaj, RVP, Valencia and Young available off the bench, it's suddenly not a bad squad.

still think the midfield is missing an enforcer unless lvg thinks blind is going to develop in that direction.


going to be really interesting to watch after last season and that start to this one.

Herrera will be the enforcer from what I've seen of him at Bilbao.

Could be, he's still young, been touted at Spain's next big CM, seems to have decent tempo, can play passes and not afraid to get stuck in. Doesn't score many though but we shouldn't need him for goals now.

Squad is looking stronger for sure. They are bound to improve but I think they have totally lost that veneer of invincibility gained over years of dominance under Fergie. No-one is intimidated any more and many teams have a go at them now where before they'd shut up shop and hope for a draw.

True, but clubs will be wary after seeing what we've done in the window, and all it takes is a few solid results in our favour and teams will think twice again about playing us.

well, when you've been through the good times and the bad times it tends to bring people closer together
