We all know United have a great attack, although it may not have seemed it on Sunday! However, we need to spend big at the back in January. There is no use in being linked with another winger or striker. The issue is in defence!’
When you buy your defender from a lower league club, like we did with Smalling, there will only be one outcome! Silly mistakes and wrong attitudes are a key problem within United.
Let’s look at Leicester for example. United had the game won with a wonderful goal by Di Maria but became complacent and did not see the game through. This would never happen under Fergie!
I am fully aware that Fergie is in the past but we must keep the attacking mentality and the defensive dominance we had with him. It is sad to see my club decline so much and the real shame is that we have done worse under Van Gaal than we have with Moyes this season.
So who do United bring in to help the defensive problems? The fans favourite is Hummels from Dortmund and with the locality factor that Klopp uses at Dortmund, I am sure he would sweat blood for the team! Vidal is another that could help the back four from midfield but I believe Blind is doing a great job at the moment.
Just like all United fans, this is just my opinion. Please leave a comment below with any players you want to see at United (realistically).
