I agree that we should be looking for a DM that fits our system rather than looking for the next Carrick or whatever. That's what @Adnan and @BenitoSTARR are arguing about. @BenitoSTARR thinks Koopmeiners fits the current system Ole is playing while @Adnan thinks Zakaria fits the system Ole played at Molde. Some say Ndidi fits because we play with two playmakers in Bruno and Pogba similar to Maddison and TeilemansI don't know who would be the best player for our midfield. I would like us to have a powerful scouting network and a real game plan and club development to get back to the top as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the two do not seem to be the case.
It exasperates me that we are looking for the new Scholes, Keane, Carrick, Matic, Alonso, Pirlo etc. Instead of looking for clones of these players, you have to find players who will perform well with a clear game plan. The feeling that I have is that we put individuals on the ground hoping that it works without any real game plan.
Players must be complementary and make it work.
We had so many players who were not world class but were important to the team (JS Park, Carrick, Butt, Fletcher, Brown, O'Shea, Valencia (Fergie era) etc.
Example ... Makelele at Galacticos Real. As soon as he left, the balance fell.
So we need a good manager who could help us move in this direction.
So in my opinion the most important thing is not which players will come (reputation) but how they will register in the game project and make it perform.
