I agree with the stripping of deadwood and building a new team...but I'm doubtful Ole is the man to do it. Needs a top coach to oversee the rebuild... just need one who plays attacking modern football... Klopp was our biggest mistake.

That’s close to $500m and while that’s not near the money we have spent since Sir Alex left it is still a fair amount of beer money. The interesting thing is that it appears that the board committed to a plan and stuck with it, good things happen when you have a plan, work the plan and are willing to stick with it.
Of course we would have to have a plan to begin with.
