Jose clearly blind to United’s big weakness

A lot has been said about United’s start to the Premier League season – all positive of course. Three convincing victories, 10 goals and 0 conceded, it would be hard not to buy into everything that is being written at present. The reality is that despite the clean sheets there are is one real weaknesses in this team – step forward Daley Blind.

I know that United fans will see criticism of Blind is harsh, given that left back is not his natural position, but with Shaw’s injuries never ending we have to accept that this is our chosen option for the large part of the season ahead. I ask the question as to whether we could get through a whole campaign with such an important position being manned by a square peg in a round hole? Unfortunately Blind is no Valencia in getting down the wing to join the attack – something that is clearly evident on our left hand side.

There are transfer options out there, with Danny Rose the most obvious signing. The Tottenham man is set to resume training and his pace and energy would be a fabulous addition and dare I say be the missing link to what appears to be a near complete starting XI. The player has already stated his desire to move back up north and his hope to win trophies and it feels like the perfect fit for the football club.

Other options include the likes of Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon – who looks like the real deal and who could be a mainstay in that starting lineup for the next 10yrs. Personally I don’t think it is a signing that Mourinho would look at, given that he is not for nurturing young players with his desire for instant success – so maybe Rose would be the most attractive solution.

I don’t know what United fans think about Blind, but can we honestly rely on him for the rest of the season? This is the most complete team I have seen in some time; however, can Jose really afford to overlook it? Full backs are fast becoming the most important position in the team (hence why City spent £150m on them) and the Red Devils need to wake up to this.
