I am amazed by the people in here suggesting (like Swift) that we need a minimal amount of change. No evidence I have seen indicates that this lot can be mounded into a better team next year. A wholesale change is needed but it is unlikely to happen because it would require clubs to take some of the poor performers off us at a price that the owners could accept. So, I would hope that we release most of those at the end of contracts and find clubs to loan others out to. Then bring in some fresh and hungry players. We need (as we have done for a long time) at least one aggressive striker who gets under defenders skins, a ball winning CM (the player that I think we expected JvdB was, but wasn't), and some solid defenders who can work as a unit.
On paper we look to have some good (ish) players but it is pretty clear to me that they struggle to perform as a coordinated unit, ie they are not a team. So, as big a clear out as possible and then build afresh.
