Look at how many wingers/forwards we have and tell me THAT isn't madness. Add to that the rumors that we're looking at Moura and it really is unbelievable. Nani, AY, Valencia, Kagawa, Rooney, Welbeck, Chicharito, and Berba & Macheda still around. Even Cleverley and Anderfon are more attacking MFs so how SAF will choose his front 4 or 5 is beyond me.
I'm more concerned we're going to suffer a defensive crisis, not just at the back but in central MF where we lack options against the quicker teams. And we don't gave a Park who can run his ass off for 90 mins either. We better hope Vidic stays fit and SAF makes a couple more signings. I'm not starting to panic just get but I can't remember the start to a season where I had so much concern.
What the hell you complaining about?
Moura is going to be a great player, and you're worried that he might displace Young, Anderson, Chico, Berbs, Macheda??? players that either might/should be sold, aren't living up to their potential, or simply aren't that good in the first place.
Fuck that... if he's an improvement on some of the mediocre dreck we've been accumulating over the past few years... then sign him up.
And what's the point in worrying about a defensive crisis before the season's even started? When fit, I'll stack our defense up against any in the league.
I agree that a tough tackling box to box midfielder, with an eye for a pass would be a good signing... but the best ones are rare, and expensive... more than what we'll spend, so that's not an issue... let's just get some proper talent in for a change and see if we can at least play some exciting football.
