So the question for next season is whether we go young and exciting or old and frustrating for our season in the Championship. There has already been fan chatter saying that we need to have Cooper (great squad man but not a starter), Ayling (Mr mediocrity on his best day), Dallas (injury ended him) Bamford (makes barndoor Billy Paytner look polific) and Forshaw (great on the ball but zero positional awareness causing midfield holes) as our main stays as they a "good fellows" and have done it before. Forgotten are their terrible performances prior to Biesla recreating them into real footballers. Do we base our team on them or do we base it on Cresswell (comfortable at Championship level), Hjelda (comfortable at Championship level), Gyabi ( ready to step up), Perkins (ready to step up), Gray (Mancity and Liverpool interest), and Joseph (rumours that lower table Spanish clubs think he could start now for them).
For me it is the younger team with a few older heads to help them and not the good old boys. It needs a new direction with a young manager to grow with the boys.
