Lest we forget: We are in trouble

The sacking of Jose and eventual appointment of Ole Gunner has brought back a spark of hope at Manchester United. It is now mathematically possible that we can secure a 3rd place finish.
The joy, the passion and the smiles are back at Old Trafford. The players are playing well, the fans are happy and the coaching staff is performing.

However, this shouldn't divert us from the major issue. In August, there was general concern about lack of activity from the board. I am afraid, this will jeopardise our season's ambitions.

From the performance under Jose and even under Ole Gunner, it is very obvious we need a center back. A person like Rojo is almost permanently injured. Bailly, Jones and Smalling are in and out of injury. Lindelof looks our most reliable option but being over worked can cause him fatigue. I would appreciate that Woodward brings in a good center back, even on loan.

Well, the argument may be that we need a Director of Football first before any purchases are made. I fully agree with this and I would imagine Woodward could employ a great director of football soonest.

There are a couple of games coming up next and I wouldn't want us to regret not buying a player in this transfer window.

Now that's just one side of the trouble. The other side of the coin is the increasing failure to agree to deals with out current players.

We have a couple of players whose contracts expire at the end of the season although some have an option to extend. Right now, it would be very heart breaking if we lose a player simply because they failed to agree personal terms. I would like Ed Woodward to fasten the talks with De Gea, Anthony Martial, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata at least. These are players who have proven to be an integral part to our success this season. We cannot afford to lose them.

Therefore in conclusion, if signings are not made and our good players don't extend their contracts, this will clearly indicate that the board isn't fully interested in backing the manager and are showing massive disrespect to the club and its fans.
