    Jordan Henderson?

    Is he good enough? (I haven't seen enough of him so you'll have to help me out here). I do think we need to buy the best of British when we can, though I don't see any appart from Rodwell who are good enough. I think Defour is quite likely to come, as is Stekelenberg. Promote Cleverley and then buy a striker, or a left footed attacking midfielder (Costa/Ganso?).

    • Some fresh blood in central midfield and a left footed attacking player is where I would like to see strengthened. I don't think we need to replace Rooney with another striker. I'd rather see Hernandez and Macheda given plenty of game time

      • I agree. Midfeild is the are we most need strengthening in. We need new blood in CM, a left-sided AM, as well as a midfleid schemer, or simply, playmaker. I'd rather see Chicharito and Macheda given regular game time than a new striker coming in.

        What do you guys think about the defence and goalkeeping? I do know we also need a new keeper to replace VDS when he retires.

      • Utd aren`t short of strikers with potential that`s for sure and whether they decide to invest in another striker or elsewhere on the pitch may well depend on how well Herrnandez and Macheda do between now and January. There was talk even before the Rooney story broke of utd signing Defour in January and he appears to be a player they have been interested in for sometime. There is also the strong possibility that utd will recall Cleverley and he can play anywhere in midfield including wide left.

      • Agreed Steve, I think the attacking midfielder will either come from S. America (Ganso/ Costa) or Eastern Europe. There are no obvious candidates. That said, Adem Ljajic is look extremely good at Fiorentina!

    • Rodwell for Rooney would be nice, albeit fantasy!

      Looking forward to Cleverley returning in Jan, and hope you're right about Ganso.

      I've not seen enough of Defour, but from what I have seen, he looks no better than Carrick, and he needs to go.

      • Banega (who for 45 minutes 2 weeks ago made Barcelona look foolish) would be my choice for deep midfield ahead of Defour, but given that the latter is a European, he's more likely to come. Those 2 are similar players, but Defour certainly has more about him than Carrick, who's only intermittently good at long passing when he has time and space. Carrick needs to be shipped out along with Gibson, and unfortunately, Hargreaves. Build a midfield around Fletcher, Anderson, Cleverley, and some new guns.
