This goes against my genuine feelings and I feel nothing much actually matters while Woodward remains. But for the sake of trying to find a glimmer of optimism amongst the appalling football and years of decline, what if we consider this. The overhaul and cultural change needed at United is astronomical. The closest example of a failure to manage it is Liverpool who are coming up on 3 decades without a title. They had glimmers of returns to good football under benitez and Rodgers and even had fair success under houllier but never felt like anything other than a team in transition until klopp came. We look so much like Liverpool did for so long it's painful. We can't afford 30 years of it. What if the size of the task is so big that it simply warrants another season or 2 of this rubbish. We all talk about needing a drastic overhaul but what if that's what's happening? And maybe we're not appreciating the task. If we ignore oles clear lack of coaching the team to a good level, his transfers have been good, but its the ones he didn't make that are costing him. We left the squad too thin to cope with injuries to the core of the team (bissaka pogba Shaw martial). But we've removed Lukaku, sanchez, Fellaini, darmian, herrera, Smalling, Valencia. All players we could use in this crisis but not players we needed longer term.would anybody still want these players here for the sake of a few more points these months? They had to go. Or at least most did. Not replacing them was the problem If we did the same on January and next summer and lost Young Fred Matic Pereira Mata And brought in, the likes of (though not neccesarily) maddison, longstaff, sancho, or a top striker, even accounting for losing pogba, surely we might be closer to success than it feels? 12 months from now a squad of (insert your own additions) De Gea, Henderson, romero Wan Bissaka, maguire, tuanzebe, lindelof, Shaw, Dalot, Left back McTominay, Midfielder, Midfielder, Midfielder, Gomes, James, Lingard Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, Striker If we give solskjaer the benefit of the doubt that he can identify the right players (as his signings have been good) does anybody have any optimism at all, that despite the disaster that is this season, that we might actually be on a path to a decent squad?
