This United squad isn't half as bad as some make it out to be, like you say.
We have a great set of young players in the squad that will continue to improve in the coming years, and still have a decent balance of experience to mix in with them.
All that is lacking is that bit of star quality in the middle of the park that needs to be addressed this summer.
Fergies spent the last 2 seasons reshaping the squad, and I expect that to continue in the summer. I'm sure we'll see a handful of fringe/elder players moved on like the last two summers. Kuszczak, Berbatov, Owen, Park, De Laet, and a few youngsters not looking like making the grade could go. I see 2-3 young (but with a bit of experience) players coming in, hopefully 1 or 2 of which will strengthen central midfield.
This team isn't our best, but its far from our worst (despite the obvious disappointment in cup competitions this season) and it doesn't need much to become one of Fergies finest imo. The fact we managed to win title 19 last season and barring a disastrous collapse, retaining the title again this season, with all the injuries we've had is a great achievement while going through a bit of a rebuilding process.
Make 2-3 good signings in the summer and we'll be in good shape for next season.
If we can purchase some better luck for injuries, that wouldn't go amiss either! ;-)
