So a striker who can score, a quality wide man, an AM, along with a CM who can switch between the CDM and CM roles would be the main gaps in our first team that need filling in my eyes. The likes of Carroll and Henderson can become squad back up if they stay at the club.
2 straight into the first team players (CM/AM, RM)
2 first team back up (CM/DM, ST)
1 first team back up (LB)
Spearing, Downing, Henderson, Shelvey all as backup with Sterling coming up from the reserves.
Carroll and this new striker fighting for the position. Provided Carroll continues his run of form/confidence.
