If you take out Pogba and Lindelof yes.Thought I’d start a positive thread amongst the negativity brought upon by this transfer window. So, if by some chance Woodward pulls through and gets us all our supposed main targets before Tuesday ends, this leaves us with the team:
AWB Lindelof Maguire Telles
Sancho/Dembele Bruno Rashford
Subs: Deano, Bailly, Shaw, McT, VdB, Greenwood, Cavani
Reserves: Romero, Rojo, Tuanzebe, Williams, TFM, Fred, Mata, Lingard, James, Ighalo.
Instantly, you notice a top first XI and more importantly in this congested, tiring season, good squad depth, including some decent players who can’t even make the 18 on a day when everyone is fit. I wouldn’t say it rivals Liverpool’s squad just yet (although, the depth does), but if these guys hit good form like many did at the back end of last season, we can beat anybody on any day.
So, stick to the thread please. No transfer talk here. Can this squad challenge for the title?
Plus you will need to see Martial perform to levels he has never performed before.
I do not think United can win the league with Martial as the point man. On the wings may be.
Swap Pogba with a defensive Midfielder, sign a top centre half to play in place of Lindelof and replace Martial with Haaland. That's a title winning team.
For all his skills and all that, Paul Pogba is a liability in that part of midfield. The most overated player I can remember of in recent years. Pogba the current player is different to the Pogba that his fan boys think he is or want him to be.
