Following today's result I've come to the conclusion that a big defensive overhaul is required in the summer. We have spent poorly on defensive options since the retirement of SAF and it's painfully obvious we aren't going to win trophies with the current defensive setup. I know we have a good defensive record in terms of goals conceded but it doesn't tell the story on the pitch. The whole defensive line isn't up to standard. Our back 4 consists of players who were here during SAF's time and I can't figure out how we've spent so much money to end up with these players still playing in our defence. We'll probably be here next year making the same thread after the same result. It's time to be ruthless and make a proper clearout of deadwood in the summer. It's stupid to expect different results when you persist with the same mediocrity year in year out. First and foremost we have so many CB's in our team but only one should be part of the team we are trying to build and that's Bailly. A commanding ball playing CB in the summer is crucial. Someone like Alderweireld would be perfect. He is stalling on a new contract and if possible he'd be my first choice there. Smalling and Jones should both leave and I'd send Lindelof on loan because there's no point in him sitting on the bench when he needs gametime. Rojo can stay as cover for CB and LB. Coming to the fullbacks I have to be ruthless and say we need a new RB and LB. We play failed wingers in fullback positions and the real fullbacks can't get a game. Remember when Darmian and Shaw looked like the real deal at the start of the 15/16 season? It's been a total disaster. Do what Man City did and spend big on the fullback areas. We should be looking something like this: De Gea New RB Bailly Aldeweireld New LB Darmian and Blind should both be sold and rightly so after their shockers at Bristol along with Young. TFM and Tuanzebe should get more chances in the first team next season. Valencia and Shaw can stay as cover. I know it's a big overhaul but we need to do it to avoid being left behind. Man City have been ruthless in upgrading on their deadwood and we need to do the same. Yesterday they fielded an entire back 4 and keeper all signed by Guardiola and we have the same players that Fergie left. It's so obvious where we need to improve so let's do it.
