The 2019 / 2020 season is just a matter of weeks away, the squad, for the coming season has yet to be finalised with the supporters watching on keenly to see just who will leave Old Trafford and who the Manchester United hierarchy, guided by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, will bring in.

On a personal basis, I had hoped that all the ins and outs would have been concluded by now, but nothing is that simple in the complicated world of the transfer market.

But, ahead of the new season, it’s fair to say that we all have our aspirations as to what the club can achieve in the coming season.

Last season ended disappointingly with Manchester United after it looked as if a top-four place could be attained, ending the season poorly and finishing in a dismal sixth place.

It is essential that the club arrest that slump and in an interview with The BBC, it is good to hear Ole Gunnar Solksjaer remark:

“We have to aim for further up than fourth. I would rather be an optimist and be wrong than a pessimist and be right. I am not used to us being fifth or sixth but that is where we are at. That is the size of the challenge. I love that challenge.”

Bold and interesting words from a boss who knows exactly what is required.

But, based on how we finished the 2018 / 2019 season and our current transfer activity, can we hope to finish higher than fourth and possibly challenge the grip that Manchester City and Liverpool have on the Premier League?

Your thoughts on the above question would be greatly appreciated in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • Unless we strengthen in Midfield with a DM and a top box to box general as well as a leader CB we won’t get into top 4. City, Liverpool, and Spurs are still far ahead of us while other teams have improved. Chelsea and Arsenal will also be fighting for that 4th spot as well as Everton, Leicester, and others. So unless we get the right players for midfield, the heartbeat of every good side, I think we will struggle again.
