Having watched the new signings make such an impact on Sunday, the urge to scream for Mike Ashley to open his wallet and start buying big rears its Primal Scream-eque head. Having viewed the quality of the new signings, they get the 'thumbs up`. However, never sated, you begin to look for more…
Delighted as I was there was one slight niggle all day - left back. Taggart never requires a second offering to take a stab at a weakness, very much ruthless in his way of going about things, and time after time the Mancs targeted N`Zogbia as our supposed weak link. This wasn`t exactly ably aided by the lad`s continuous attempts to dribble mazily out of defence, normally leading to a touch too much and the ball ended back up in Scholes` possession.
Colo ended up having to cover across on numerous occasions with Chuck caught stranded up field, with Jonas filling in ably as a stand in. Campbell in particular seemed to isolate that area as one where he could have a run into.
The question remains to be answered why KK didn`t play Enrique. My personal preference would be to see Enrique deployed away from home and N`Zogbia be kept either for inside left / left wing or an almost wing back position in home games. Whilst he does have a good dribble from time-to-time, his wastefulness with the ball away from home could have been punished by a Ronaldo / Wright-Phillips running at him down the right flank.
It begs the question that if Kev is willing to play a left winger at left back how much confidence does he have in the Spaniard? Not a lot by the looks of it. This again hints that the LB role remains the most likely to be filled, along with one or two strikers should Smith / Ameobi go.
