I still think, specifically, its a bullying number 6 that United lack. I mean, Carrick distributes really well, but I'm not sure if he makes players think twice when they come at him like Keane did, or will always stick a leg in like Xabi Alonso does.

My benchmark is would they get into the Barcelona or Bayern side s(that has to be our yardstick if we are serious about being the best). Thinking about United, there aren't many who would. RVP maybe, Rooney on form probably, Vidic if he wasn't always injured and maybe De Gea if he carries on - but no-one else. And that's why we are still shit in Europe. Because our players aren't good enough.

Would Wellbeck, Anderson, Jones (who I really like) or Nani even be close to Bayern's bench? Of course not.
Hopefully Fletcher will be back to full fitness by the time the season rolls in. I remember him working really well with Carrick all them many two years ago.

That being said, I still like what Welbeck brings to the table. Whilst he isn't an outright goal scorer, he can fit into a system that does already have three outright scorers in Rooney, RvP, and Hernandez. He's willing to run at defenders, and does get past them really well. As mean as this comparison may be, he's like a better Emile Heskey - in that he doesn't trip over himself/the ball often at all.

Anderson shown great signs of improvement last season. He was shit-hot at the beginning. If he still can't find consistency, though, that'll be the problem.

I'm hoping to chalk off Valencia's last season as a terrible and misfortune accident. I thought he was easily United's best outfield player the season prior.

And I don't worry about Jones at all, tbh.

Apparently Daniel Levy has already sold Bale to Real, but is keeping it quiet until he signs 2-3 more players!

Apparently Levy is going to sign the man from the moon to play up front (and he is made from cream cheese).
