Beating Manchester City, in the Manchester derby, on Sunday, was a very pleasurable experience.
Even more so when you consider the win gave Manchester United a Premier League double over the reigning champions for the first time in what seems like an age.
But, on the back of such an achievement, it is essential that we don’t rest on our laurels.
The gap, between us and Liverpool at the summit of the Premier League, is evidence enough that there is still a lot of hard work to be done if Manchester United are, once again, set to be challengers for the Premier League title.
It is a point that Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was quick to make in the aftermath of the victory with the gaffer remarking, as reported by ESPN:
“We feel we are improving all the time.
“We know we lack one-two-three players to be considered a title contender and some experience and we know that.”
It is, I believe, fair comment and it should also be remembered that those above us in the table will also be looking towards the summer to improve their sides.
But Ole’s comments give me the perfect opportunity to ask a very pertinent question:
How Many Summer Signings Do United Need To Be Genuine Title Contenders?
Two or Three!
Five or More!
It’ll be interesting to see how this poll turns out.
