Think we can all agree CB is where we most badly need to invest. For me I’d love to see us go for Varane or Koulibaly
RB - would Azpillecueta be tempted to leave Chelsea if they spend a second year in Europa League? Prem proven, leader at the back. If not him then Meunier makes sense
CM - Rabiot on a free is a no brainer for me! He could sit with Herrera leaving Pogba roam free. Younger, quicker and more exciting than Matic, allows him to be a squad player used to come off the bench to close a game out. Would allow McTom to go on loan and play regularly. I reckon we’d get a top player back if he got a years experience
RW - time to consider Bale again? (But actually get him this time) Martial on the left and Rashford up top is exciting but both are young and can be inconsistent. We need someone who can guarantee goals from the right and Bale does that (when fit) . Chong is an exciting prospect and signing Bale would give Chong opportunity to play 15+ games next season. If he doesn’t fancy leaving sunny Madrid I’d take a chance on Pepe, Dybala, Dembele or Bernadeshchi
Bulk up the squad with Alfie Mawson (replace Rojo) and Mitrovic from Fulham once they get relegated
Promote Tuanzebe, Gomes and Chong fully and bring Garner and Greenwood into the fold slowly
Ins: Outs:
Azpillecueta. Valencia and Darmian
Varane. Jones
Mawson. Rojo
Tuanzebe. Bailey (on loan)
Rabiot. McTom (on loan)
Gomes. Perreira
Bale. Sanchez
Chong. Mata
Mitrovic. Lukaku.

Have there been any further developments Ed apart from interest in Douglas Costa and Koulibaly?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time.}

2.) 28 Feb 2019 22:51:09
I would struggle to do that sort of window on fifa let alone real life.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 22:51:22
What a horrible list this is, azpilicueta? Rabiot? Bale? Why would you want Bale for? He will be injured most of the time hanging out with Jones than playing.

4.) 01 Mar 2019 01:24:42
Agree reman. I don’t understand the high praise for Azpilicueta. He seems to be stuck between two positions. He’s not good enough going forward to be a rb and not good enough to play in a 2 as cb. He’s perfect for 3 at the back to offer him protection. But yeh that list is not a great list of players. Add koulibaly, ndombele, Sancho and wan bissaka and that’s a great window. Not sure how successful we would be in attaining them all.

5.) 01 Mar 2019 04:53:37
Bale would command a huge fee as well as wage.
But, we do need an elite forward who performs week in week out.
We have far too many young players in our squad who can be inconsistent.
Maybe get rid of Sanchez and get in Robert Lewandowski?

In Central Midfield I would prefer Saul Niguez over Rabiot.
At 24, he would be a solid investment for the long term.

Koulibaly or Skriniar for CB.

6.) 01 Mar 2019 06:49:06
Avoid Bale at all costs the last thing we need is another 30something on obscene wages. Much prefer to see Lozano come in for a wide position.

7.) 01 Mar 2019 07:51:50
Kev, I’d like a pint of what you’re drinking mate 🙄

Bale may have been an option a few years ago but not any more. Mitrovic? Azpilicueta? Ole has shown how well this team can play, we have some youngsters coming through so we need to but probably 3 top level players to supplement that. Why would we send McT out on loan, the kid is doing really well and should now be a regular squad player. You want to seen him put on loan but promote Gomes and Chong who have no first team experience at all?

It’s all about opinions I guess.

8.) 01 Mar 2019 09:40:43
I'd quite happily take Rabbiot on a free this summer. He could play in the Matic or the Herrera role allowing some rotation. Also allows money to be spent on other players.

Koulibaly or Romanogli for CB. No to Bale, Azpi and Mitrovice.

TrueRed - I like Saul but he'd cost a lot.

9.) 01 Mar 2019 10:17:31
Saul is quality and worth the investment.
The Spanish contingent in our team could help him to settle quickly.
We need players like him to close in on City and Liverpool.

Rabiot comes with baggage so wouldn't prefer him. Another player I like is Julian Weigl of Dortmund.

10.) 01 Mar 2019 11:43:31
How many times have we flirted with Bale and he's not wanted to come to us? Feels like desperation with him. He doesn't fancy us, but we still have his name written in the bottom of our pencil case.

I'd rather we played youth than brought in an older mercenary who doesn't really want to come.

Hi all, Happy Christmas and thanks to the Eds for the great work all year!

In relation to Achraf Hagimi of RM, have Man Utd shown any interest? With Valencia picking up his knock and Darmian being heavily linked with a return to Italy surely RB is an area we’re looking into. Are we likely to make a move for anyone, recall TFM or hang on to Darmian and wait until the summer?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Achraf Hagimi is simply some random player - it is a waste of time asking about such things.}

Willian can be top level for 2-4 seasons, ideal for Chong to grow and progress into first team in that time.
Agree that Martial should move on and Rashford should be LW back up. Zlatan style striker for back up to Lukaku, say what you like about him getting the second contract but Ibra could’ve helped us on Saturday.

Ronnie is on a scouting mission looking at Peru under-14s versus a Sri Lankan XI. I expect ED002 will be giving more details of the promising young players on show in the next Sharkopod.

Thanks Ed

Any of the three CBs would be great additions. As for an English signing to keep balance if Jones and Smalling leave (which I hope they do), I’d love to see us give Tuanzebe a real chance.

LB I’d love Rose. I know some people are negative about his injuries and overall performance level but he’d undoubtedly be a huge improvement for us. Hopefully we keep an eye on Tierney and line him up for a move in the next couple of seasons.

DM I’d rather see TFM given a chance in our squad in this position than at RB (that would mean us having to make a signing there though) . I think Matic has done well for us and no harm having him and TFM as our two options next season

Would love Kroos at CM to make the midfield three. Jorginho and Fred both good options too.

Only attacking player on the list that seems exciting is Asensio. Would move heaven, earth and Martial to get him. But given how unlikely it sounds I’d rather stick with the attacking players we have.

Outgoings seem good, possibly Fellaini and Mata to be added to the list? Andreas Perreira another young player who could add to our squad next season too. An interesting and important summer ahead if we’re to close the gap on City and avoid being surpassed by the scousers.

Agree that DDG and Sanchez are our stand out players. Disagree that they’re the only two with quality. Frustrating to see Pogba and Martial used in positions they’re not equipped to play in. Would love to see Sanchez on right and Martial on left. With Valencia’s ability to overlap Sanchez could have plenty of freedom to drift inside which is what Mata has been doing for the last 18 months anyway. Matic is a top DM and should allow Pogba to play with freedom in a midfield 3. Surely one of Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick or McTominay could play the other position in that midfield. Lukaku is able to hold up the ball and if used properly could be fantastic at unleashing Martial, Sanchez and Pogba in attack as well as scoring plenty himself inside the box.

In defence as well as having the best GK in the world, we’ve got two good full backs in Shaw and Valencia. TFM could be a good back up for RB from next season and allow a gradual transition into first team. Bailey is immense and we’ve really missed him. Once fit we need a top quality, consistent partner for him.

Overall I think we’re only a CB and CM short of a great team provided we play a midfield 3 and use the attacking players we have wisely. A second CM to replace Carrick in the squad is also needed and with young guys like Tuanzebe and Perreira I think we have a balanced, young and exciting team. Smalling and Jones are abysmal and it looks like Fellaini and Darmian want out. If those four left along with Carrixk and Zlatan moving on and we bring in a CB and one or two CMs while promoting TFM, Tuanzebe and Perreira I’d be happy. No need to panic, it’s not a huge overhaul, just a bit of quality to allow us play a system that would get the best out of what we have.

I'm sure a two game European ban will have little to no bearing on transfers but could any of the Eds clarify if we are seeking to sell any defenders? Darmian/ Smalling/ Jones/ Blind were all mentioned in the past (I have read the page and listened to the Sharkpod) . Given Bailey and Jones are out of CL and Shaw and Rojo have long term injuries, are any of these players likely to leave or will it likely be January before we see some movement here?

Weigl, Jorginho it Dendoncker would be brilliant replacements for Carrick and would give great cover/ competition to Matic.

I agree a 433 is our best option going forward as it is best for Pogba. Milonkovic-Savic would be phenomenal but wouldn’t refuse a Toni Kross or even Fabregas signing for that position.

Matic, Pogba plus two more along with Herrera and Pereira would be comfortable. Lingard gives us the option of playing a 10 at times if we want and obviously Sanchez can play there too. Letting Mata go would also mean more chances for Gomes as a 10 next season.

So 2 midfielders, a top CB, replace Zlatan with a Fox in the box type and we’re laughing. Add to this TFM for RB, Tuanzebe for CB, Pereira for CM and Gomes for 10 and we’d have a squad with a fantastic mix of youth/ experience, with players able to play different styles and systems. Offload Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Fellaini and Mata along with Carrick and Zlatan. Fantasy Football stuff perhaps 🙈.
