for me this was our biggest mistake this campaign.
We bought Jones (nothing to do with Jones) but we bought a defender we didn't really need in favour of a central midfielder (who we really did need). The fact that Jones has hardly played at CB all season tells me that we didn't really need him there and we'd have been better of with a central midfielder who can keep the ball!
SAF knew more than I did. We both knew that Hargreaves was leaving, Scholes was retiring, Anderson had never played more than 20 games in a season due to fitness, that Giggs was ageing, and that Park's powers were on the wane following his knee surgery a few years ago.
But in addition SAF knew that Fletcher had Bowel Cancer and I didn't! No excuse - should have signed a central midfield player!
