The Premier League comes to an end this weekend, much to the joy of most Manchester United fans.
What a season we had! An emotional roller coaster but we can now breathe a sigh of relief that the nightmare is over.
David Moyes came in with plenty of promise. Hand picked by the great Alex Ferguson, he was expected to carry on the legacy. Unfortunately, it did not work out.
We may not be in Europe next season and we are trophy-less. And we broke numerous unflattering records.
So, what can we expect from our beloved Red Devils next season? Hopefully under a world-class manager, we will move in the right direction.
Louis van Gaal seems to be the right man for the job and he is keen on the challenge. His no-nonsense management style combined with the ability of playing sexy football would certainly win over the broken hearts at Old Trafford.
There also needs to be a major overhaul in the squad. Nine players including those set to retire should leave United in the summer.
With Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Anderson all leaving at the end of the season, the new manager also needs to let go of Alex Buttner, Nani, Ashley Young and Tom Cleverley.
Without European football, it would be hard for United to attract big name players but this is still a massive club with a global fan base.
Some of the players I would like to see at United next season would be Domenico Criscito (Zenit St Petersburg) or Luke Shaw (Southampton) for the leftback position, Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) and Andrea Barzagli (Juventus) for the central defender position and Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur) in midfield.
Of course getting any of these players would be a huge plus but it would require a hefty investment. A small price to pay for a club that is in serious need of help.
I also hope to see the class of ‘92 taking coaching roles at the club but that’s up to the new manager to decide.
No matter what happens, true United fans will stand by their club and continue giving their undying support to the players.
Nevash would like to thank StarSport readers for listening to his rant every month.
