Toon Midfield - All Change?

Although Nicky Butt looks set to return to Newcastle next season, the United midfield could be thread bare if Turkish international Emre gets his wish and returns to Italy, Lee Bowyer returns to London, Kieron Dyer gets the thumbs down from his surgeon and Amdy Faye moves back to Portsmouth.

Are United in a position to off-load Amdy Faye? He hasn't settled at the club and has failed to win over the Toon support. But would he be the answer to a few problems?

Faye was signed by former manager Graeme Souness as a holding midfielder in a 2m switch from the South-Coast, and some say Pompey want the 28-year-old to return to Fratton Park.

On the plus side: Charles N'Zogbia has signed a new contract and South Africa-born Matty Pattison is tipped for the top. James Milner has had a successful season on loan at Aston Villa, so things may not be as bad as we first thought.

emre can go if he wants , great player but hasnt got the commitment or fight in him , but bowyer must stay to link him with parker in midfield would be great, both can provide power, pace, defense and attacking ,millner must be brought back as well , to provide competion for nobby , get rid of boumsong bring in cover for left back position , another solid center back doesnt have to be a big name just some one as a opposed to boumsong that can defend and two strikers , kuyt and defoe would be great but cant see it realy ,

I'll be happy if Emre stays but not bothered if he goes. he's ok but I'm sure we could replace him.
