Hi Eds. Any idea if michael carrick is to be given a new contract?

{Ed004's Note - I think we will know more in the next month but hopefully}

I'd let him go. His passing is very good but he's lightweight and has a tendency to get caught out. Nearly 35. We need younger players who aren't injury prone.

Thanks ed for your reply

Carrick is a good player. He picks up really good defensive positions which goes unnoticed. And with mourinho wanting to get the ball forward quicker than van gaal we may see carrick playing well next year. If given a new contract.

{Ed004's Note - I think Mourinho will get far more from Schneidlerin so Carrick would be good cover for him with Mensah taking over in the long run. However, I'd like to see Mensah play as a right back next season}

Yes I think you are right. Though I thought he might use carrick in a similar way as he did with Alonso at real madrid. Or he will probably use bastian for that.

I would take Aubameyeng before Ibrahimovic or Benzema.
I have never personally seen the love in with Benzema. Ibrahimovic is pure class but we need to build a team to challenge over the next 4/ 5 seasons minimum.

New CB, preferably 2
Right winger
New striker

Hope Rashford and Fosu-Mensah become first team regulars.

(It's probably just me) (always is! ) . but, who was there when the class of 92 came through and everyone was being shown the door? Exactly, no one!

Ok, yeah there were a few knowledgable heads about, but everyone else was being shown the door to clear the way for these young guys?

Was that wrong? Well we didn't too bad out of it did we!

"Sentiment" used quite a lot that word, well where was "sentiment" back then?

What has Giggs done since he stopped being a player? He's not the next manager, sure he can analyse each game, but then, so can each of us on the site, some better than others and also more accurate than others?

The club has to stop all this sentiment stuff to move on and go forward!

These so called kids are actually MEN and should stop having their butts wiped by the club!

Carrick, Rooney etc tremendous players IN THEIR DAY, move on for gods sake!

Promote or buy younger players who have that hunger back in their bellies because they want to play for Manchester United and become professional footballers?

Ronnie, I was there in '95 when the youngsters were blooded and it isn't how you portray it. Ince left having agitated for a move, Kanchelskis threw a wobbly for reasons that have never been fully explained and Hughes was released as we had signed Andy Cole. The full backs were aging which gave opportunities to the Nevilles so it was a combination of things that allowed a few of them to make their claim in the same season. Not everyone was being shown the door.

Its all great to give 5 or 6 promising young players a good run when ya have the core of the team like Schmeichal, Irwin, Mc Clair, Keane Cantona and Cole. We just don't have that quality of players at the moment in my opinion to be able t give all the youngsters a big run of games! I think we need a few world class players especially cd and CM , a striker! IMO this time is slightly different from class 92, the integration process should be a bit more gradual.
