Colin - we know your views which is fine. What I want to know is how would you fix it? Hers a few questions so I know where your coming from.
1) which managers are acceptable to you?
2) 2 centre halves - who?
3) muscle man in the middle - who?
4) striker - is AC the only option?
5) ACM - who?
6) who would you sell and how would you plug the gaps by their departures?
If you answer those I will have a better handle of where your coming from.
