The last couple of days have been a nice cooling off period and the acceptance that yet another season is about to close with no trophies. I haven’t really been paying any attention to the media because I know exactly whats being said. Its the Wenger-out crew in full force and, as I made clear in Monday’s post, I refuse to be anywhere near those imbeciles.
I’ve been looking at the squad in great detail this week (after analysing the current squad here) and have come to some sort of decision as to what the ideal squad will be for the next campaign. I’ve tried to make my list reasonable, there is no strike force of RVP and Messi.
I’m not going to claim to have any ‘inside knowledge’, nor think that this will definitely be the squad in August. This is simply what I’d like to see, what is possible and what could win the league in 12 months time.
I’ve gone for a Mourinho-esque ‘two in every position’ from when he first joined Chelsea. There isn’t much I like about him, but I’ll admit this is something he got spot on. Having two quality players on every space on the team-sheet is the factor that won them the league, and we are very close to having the same. However, because of our diabolical injury record we need three in each position: at least two being of Champions League standard.
Tomorrow, I’ll go through exactly why I think its time for certain players to move on and detail my reasoning for this squad. If you have any comments, suggestions for new signings or agree/disagree with any of my choices leave a comment below or tweet me on @JattGooner. I’ll then respond to those in the blog.
Before I go, here’s a little something to get you up for the Man Utd game.
