No way we break into the top 8 next year.
Break down areas of immediate need. Sort out what money is available. Identify potential targets.
Figure out that this will have to be a year by year increment now. We have left it far too long without upgrading older, injury ravaged players. So no we need to many players in too many key positions to get all of this done in one fell swoop.
If we want to move up gradually. I think Adrian can keep up around 10-13th. He was in goal at our last year at the Boleyn wasn't he ? Improve the lot in front of him. Sort the DM position out. Sort out whether depending on who we bring in, what system we want to play. We went from 4 to 3 to 5 to 3 all over the shop. Again this depends upon the manager hired in. I think though if we can improve the defenders and DM AND sort out a system early, we can get by with Adrian.
We need TWO goalkeepers if he goes.
starting/back up RB priority
RM/LW secondary priority
F secondary priority
LB third priority - if new CB then it moves down
squad fillers third priority
backup keeper secondary/third priority
None of these targets can be prioritised until a new manager comes in/Moyes reappointed.
Ridiculous. I assume that Moyes will have identified areas where he needs to fix things. Another bloke might see things so much differently.
Where's the head banger emoticon.
