12 Manchester United Players need to go


According to Robbie Savage 12 Utd players need to go and they need to spend £200 million to get them back at the top.I have to say Robbie is spot on.....We all know Man Utd never break the bank.....But this attitude has to change.Man City,Chelsea,Arsenal,Liverpool and even Spurs are spending big money.All teams that are above man Utd.

Tom Cleverly, Ashley Young and Smalling are to the obvious choices, but for me I think Welbeck and Nani have to go as well, they are too inconsistent and unreliable. United need to bring in a holding mid, defensive mid, a pair of center backs (don't think Jones is ready for first team football yet) and a left back.

Smalling, Evans, jones, welbeck, young 5 players who played today who aren't good enough jones and Evans are good back up players and welbeck has the odd decent game.. Personally would sell smalling and young.. Nani needs to go as well... Valencia is far too inconsistent as well.. They should put me in charge, id sort #### out

@crackentone lol without Van Persie and Rooney there is absolutly no quality. I think they need to go on a spending rampage and perhaps spend around 200 million.

@crackentone haha because I have views as to the players I would like to see come to United I think I'm a real football manager? It is fantasy, I acknowledged when I wrote that that it won't happen.

I have watched United this season, if you look at other posts I have massively criticised United this season, particularly the tactics employed, and have acknowledged change is needed, I wrote down 7 players that I think will go and won't particularly be missed, and the type of players I would like to see United get, giving examples of the players I like.

Also, most of the people that are criticisingwere praising EXACTLY THE SAME SQUAD last season, just because they are of that opinion, doesn't mean I have to be.

I have mentioned 12 as you said Robbie Savage is spot on with that number in your title, and mention just over half that yourself, you bang on about change being needed yet barely give any opinion, but I guess giving an opinion means that you think you should be in the job instead? So that is why you don't give one? You just get angry and start throwing insults about.

@Doozers20 Have you read your own Posts.....comical i would say.You talk like you manage a top club....Never read so much garbage in my entire life.Your living in fantasy world the way you talk. And have you really watched United play this season.Do you know anything about football. Most of the football media that include TV/radio/newspaper's/internet and the 75000 that attend Old Trafford know this team is ordinary. Most of them agree that the whole squad needs changed/replaced ASAP. You need to stop thinking your a real football manager BECAUSE YOUR NOT. Now could you please stop pestering me about the number 12.........If you have wee problem Phone the Samaritans...Slan go foil.

@Doozers20 I never said 12 ROBBIE SAVAGE SAID 12 PLAYERS....... BY THE WAY I COULD NAME MORE THAN 12......

@crackentone oh right ok, well when you say United need to get rid of 12, then theres only 7 you can mention, that's quite a big difference.

They've gone through massive change, more than necessary in my opinion, of course there is going to be a bedding in period.

@Doozers20 We have got our wires crossed, you said i need to look at my maths....I said that was silly,you were being sarcastic....lol PS 12 players would disrupt the team....Look at the state of them.

@crackentone getting rid of 12 players would completely disrupt the squad, a lot of the players United have would be good back up but not quite up to it as consistent 1st teamers.

As mentioned below I think 7 or 8 over the next 2 windows should be gone, bringing in 4 1st teamers and a couple of youngsters that will take over from the older 1st teamers in a couple of seasons.

You say that it is just someones opinion, but then when I give my opinion that 12 is drastic, it's called silly...

@Doozers20 What does it matter if its 12.10.9 and so on. Its just someone's opinion and it may seem drastic to you but not to others.That a lot of players need to go.

@crackentone How is it silly to suggest that 12 changes is a bit drastic?

@Doozers20 I agree with robbie there needs to be a big clear out whether its 12 or 7.
your just being silly now.

@Hybridism agree with this big time, whilst our team has aged and we havnt addressed it, city brought in Negredo and he is a beast, arsenal have become a really good team.. Chelsea are always gonna be contenders. Even spurs Everton and a few other teams keep poking up points... It's obvious to everyone who need to leave united and its clear we aren't quite as good as the teams at the top..

In my perfect world, United will make 6 signings over the next two windows, the players I would like are... Subotic, Baines, Shaw, Gundogan, Reus and Morrison

I would look at a team like...

De Gea/Lindegaard

Rafael/Valencia, Subotic/Smalling, Evans/Keane, Baines/Buttner

Jones, Carrick, Gundogan/Fletcher, Rooney/Kagawa

Januzaj/Nani, Reus/Zaha, Van Persie/Welbeck

Other players to fill the 25 man squad would be... Fellaini, Cleverley and Hernandez. Leaving space for 1 more player.

Young players that I'd like to see play a part would be... Lingard, Powell, Thorpe, Henriquez.

I'd let Southampton keep Shaw on loan for 2 more seasons, and allow Morrison out on loan too, to a Premier League club to gain experience.

I know these will all not be possible, can't see Dortmund selling United 3 players in one year, this is just a best case for me.

Players to go would be... Vidic, Rio, Evra, Fabio, Anderson, Young, Giggs
