1. Get rid of the deadwood
With David Moyes issuing a warning to certain players in recent weeks about their string of poor performances, some players seem to have taken the warning seriously and have improved their game. They include the likes of Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young.
But these players are just not good enough for a team of the size of Manchester United. Tom Cleverley once hailed as the successor to Paul Scholes, seems nowhere near the standard of the retired Englishman.
Ashley Young started off his Man United career brilliantly but injuries affected his performances and he no longer looks like a good-enough winger for a top-four team.
The other two players who need to be shipped out are Anderson and Nani.
The Portuguese might have signed a new contract with the club but he is simply too inconsistent. He could benefit from a move away from the more physical Premier League over to the continent—the problem is finding a club willing to accept his wage demands.
Anderson who has been plagued with injury problems had his role at United diminished towards the end of Ferguson’s reign and his contribution has become further reduced since the arrival of David Moyes as he has failed to convince the Scot of his abilities.
