Heres the squad at the end of the season
Lets do a review
Valdes <3. Kept us in many a game with saves, and conceded only 37 in 55 games. 34 now and with another few years left. Stojanovic went on loan at Bolton where he became their number 1, conceding 19 in 13 overall. He’s only 22 so theres still a chance he can make it, but he’s definitely a good reserve.
Hangeland finished joint top scorer. Haha. Ridiulous. But he and Boyata also formed a great central defence partnership, look at those averages of 7.41 and 7.35. Both played over 40 matches, which just shows how well they played for us this year. Davies did well in his 1st season, tho I’d hope he can get a few more assists in the future. Mertesacker did well on loan, but there no chance of me considering signing him. I can see him and Derik, who hasnt impressed, on the way out and a big name 1st choice coming in. Coleman isnt as great as I hoped and if I was to find a better option I’d take it.
Tomkins, Rat and O’Brien will all have their contracts end at the end of the season, and I’d let any of them sign for another year if they accept a reduced contract.
Bradley is a beast, but Schneiderlin as his partner isnt progressing as well and could be a potential out. Xavi did amazing with 9 assists from 11 games, mainly because of his excellent corners. Before he came in Nedelev was doing well from them, and hes proved an excellent signing on the right wing, but tailed off a little when he got stick on the left. I like Chadli but he’s not a future championship winning player. He’ll do for another few seasons. Rafinha and Pugilese did well for their first year, and should come on in the future. Seman too is showing some positive signs but needs to score some.
Hernandez was awful. Juanmi is showing some positives but maybe isnt cut out for this. I think this could have been Andys last season, he really dropped off this year for a player on 70k a week.
Targets for next season have to be a striker (maybe 2) and a central defender. Maybe another left winger, and a right back.
FUCK THIS LETS GET OUR PRESEASON ON
