A subject on the punters’ minds in the Football Transfer Tavern of late has been just who England’s elite clubs will be parting ways with this summer and today we are concentrating on Manchester United.
The Red Devils didn’t really part with anyone of note when the free agents list was released a week or so ago with United fringe players Ben Amos and Tom Thorpe representing two of four players being let go.
However, a quick glance at United’s full playing squad on Wikipedia will quickly tell you that they boast one of the largest playing squads in the Premier League with Louis van Gaal having used more players than any other manager in the first half of 2014/15.
At the beginning of the season, van Gaal was assessing his squad as a whole and there were surprise inclusions of the likes of Jesse Lingard, Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett right back in the infancy of 2014/15.
With the Red Devils having gone on to achieve qualification back into the Champions League, you feel van Gaal will now have a better idea of who deserves to remain and who isn’t so indispensable going forward.
We’d be lying if we claimed our Red Devils supporting punters by the bar didn’t like playing manager every so often so we are putting it to them today and asking them just who they don’t want to see performing at Old Trafford next term.
