This article is written on the basis of a sweeping assumption that at the end of this season we finish in a top four position and hence are in next season's CL
My thoughts are that we are now at a significant stage in team development. We have a strong manager bringing consistency that has been sadly missing over the last decade, and longer. We have the framework of a seriously good title challenging team with the added bonus of younger players of tremendous potential.
I have always worried that DL has adopted a philosphy of buying promising players, flirt with top six in the league and the cups whilst keeping the club in the black financially. This has worked. But, now this summer, more than at any other time there has to be the major, significant and dare I say it record breaking investment in player acquisitions.
We all know where we need to add to the team. Rooney is again getting lots of media coverage linking him with a move away from United. Is this the sort of acquisition that will demonstrate the seriousness with which we are now moving ahead? Will it show that no longer are we a club that sells our best players to the likes of City and United?
When Fergie makes the call to ask about Bale the reply is 'No chance, but while you're on the line I want to speak with you about Rooney'. I accept entirely that there are the issues over terms in all transfers but I am putting out there the general view that now is the time, for once, to maybe let the heart rule the head and add the touch of gloss to reach the tipping point where we become a dominating hunter and not the hunted.
