'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ferdinand Mulls It Over!

Saturday is now history!

It`s now time to focus ahead although as you`d expect, that defeat at Wembley will have some ramifications.

If we are to move forward then some changes will need to be made, changes that Sir Alex Ferguson will mull over in the weeks to come.

Rio Ferdinand has his own thoughts though and speaking after the defeat to Barcelona he considered the good points and bad points of the season, remarking about Barcelona and our season,

"They`ve set the standard and you have to get to that standard."

"They`re a fantastic football team with great individuals, but they`re also great collectively."

"They all know their jobs and do that well. As a team you have to aim to get to that."

"We`ll brush ourselves down and come back fighting next season."

"We can`t be too hard on ourselves looking back over the season. We`ve had a brilliant season in the Premier League."

"We`ve won the title, got to another Champions League Final and an FA Cup semi-final."

"It won`t be as bad as it feels right now, but we will be hurting for a while."

"It`s just really disappointing. We genuinely had the belief that we were good enough to get a result, but it didn`t materialise."


Where those aforementioned changes will come though remains to be seen.

Central Midfielders who can play football please. The only CM's who should be demanding a 1st team place are Anderson and Fletcher, they know how to play it forward, backward, across the ground as well as in the air. Use Carrick and Gibson as back-up. We're beginning to get use to life without Scholes due to his injury so it wouldn't be the best idea to completely reintroduce him into the squad, use him as back-up also. Lets see how Cleverley gets on when he comes back, i'm sure he will provide and attacking mentality to the midfield. Barcelona have highlighted once again our need for two more midfielders. Firstly, an attacking mid. We're in desperate need for some who can link the midfield to the attack. Someone who can run at the opponents defense and cause havoc thus creating space for others to work in and then pick them out. They should provide the side with a few goals also, preferably with a decent shot on him from outside the box. Douglas Costa really does tick all these boxes for me, he's also a great threat from freekicks as well as being quite young and not demanding a ridiculous transfer fee. The only question mark being over whether he will adapt to the Premier League. The other midfielders are Sneijder and Modric, Sneijder ticks all boxes and more. Modric however struggles to find the net and will most probably demand more than both Costa and Sneijder. Secondly, we needs a strong holding mid who provides great defensive cover and provides a link between the defense and the midfield. They must be able to pass forward both across the floor and in the air, maybe not to a Xavi or Scholes standard but a decent enough standard where we're not relying on the keeper or full backs to begin the attacks. Personally, i'm stumped :P De Rossi is more than capable but at the same time I wouldn't mind Adam. As an addition I would still love another Left footed left sided player, it really does provide another option down the left hand side. We've got wing play and cutting inside going down the right but only really cutting in from the left down the left.

Yeah centre midfielders are a must, Carrick and Gibson are squad players at best, I do not rate Anderson but some do. Giggs, Scholes and Hargreaves are gone, going or are too old.We are fine in defence and attack although if Berba goes I would like another striker as well as keeping Wellbeck here. Proper good players, no prospects, full internationals who are ready and able to not just play prem league football but champions league football are a must, Sneijder wants to come so go and get him, do not ***** around, the money had better be there if nothing is done the fans will not be happy the fans have been tolerant enough they have kept the faith in the squad but they/we expect a busy summer with new arrivals in and deadwood out. De Rossi and Sneijder would show not just us, the fans, but the football community at large that we *****ing mean business. What has been achieved by Fergie and the squad this season has been great, a hell of a lot better then I predicted this season would of been and as such others teams will be investing heavily on their squads to outdo us, we do not need an overhaul but we do need key talented midfielders ready to come and go come August. So come on an att mid and a def mid have to be top of our shopping list and no shopping in the bargain section either, Italy seems to have some designer midfielders in De Rossi and Sneijder so hop on a plane and get shopping.
