Quality on the bench?..Not such a bad Idea...
So the silly season is upon us once again, that glorious time of the year when we get linked with anyone and everyone...if its not 'Mbappe to Liverpool 'cos his mums a fan', its 'Messi has been spotted at the airport' or something stupid.
However, back to the serious business at hand, are we going to see extra funds available to strengthen our bench this coming season?
When you look at city and the options they have got on the bench, they have like for like replacements in virtually all positions, and could probably win the premier league with just their B team alone, and whilst its clear for all to see that having very deep pockets obviously gives them this unfair advantage, I believe if we want to compete with them again, then we have to have decent players in core positions to bring on from the bench.
This fact is obvious if you look at some of the players we are letting go this summer. The likes of Firminio, Milner and the ox - these are big players!
So when we bring in a few guaranteed starters, are we gonna be looking at strengthening the bench as well??..
