Manquillo's decent going forward when he's on the right like. Yedlin still gives us a lot more with his pace mind

Manquillo just needs a run of matches at right back.

You miiiight be able to make a case that Manquillo is better defensively. I don’t think that’s true either, but it’s a sounder case than suggesting he’s better going forward than Yedlin.

Manquillo has actually been ok the last few times he’s played RB, definitely think that’s been overlooked a little bit.  He’s a poor player though, and Yedlin is only marginally better IMO.

Evel Knievel the mad b****** he was, wouldn't have even tried to jump the marginally better chasm between them like.

Out of contract Summer 2019: -
Mohamed Diame and Callum Roberts.

Out of contract Summer 2020: -
Joselu, Javier Manquillo, Federico Fernandez, Ki Sungyueng, Rob Elliot, Karl Darlow, Freddie Woodman and Jamie Sterry.

Goalkeepers: -
Martin Dubravka is the number 1. After him there is Karl Darlow with 1 year left on his contract. Rafa has said Rob Elliot is available for transfer. Freddie Woodman has 1 year on his contract but probably won't want to stay any longer.
I would think NUFC will be after a second choice goalkeeper in the Summer.

Centre Backs: -
Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, Fabian Schär, Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernandez and Florian Lejeune.
For once NUFC are well stocked with quality Centre Backs. I'd imagine Clark would be most likely to leave due to lack of game time.

Left Back/Right Back/Wing Back: -
Matt Ritchie, Javier Manquillo, DeAndre Yedlin, Paul Dummett, Jamie Sterry and Achraf Lazaar.
Achraf Lazaar and Jamie Sterry will be sold if possible and a LB/LWB is required. Upgrade on RB/RWB if possible.

Centre Midfield: -
Ki Sungyueng, Jonjo Shelvey, Mohamed Diame, Sean Longstaff, Isaac Hayden, Jack Colback and Henri Saivet.
Diame wanted a 2 year contract but wasn't offered one so will almost certainly leave as a free agent. Jack Colback and Henri Saivet are available for transfer. Hayden wants to leave for family reasons to a club further South. Shelvey didn't get much game time due to the form of others.

Wingers: -
Miguel Almiron, Matt Ritchie, Christian Atsu, Jacob Murphy, Kenedy and Rolando Aarons.
Aarons will be available for transfer. Jacob Murphy has been on the bench a lot while on loan with West Brom. Kenedy is on loan from Chelsea.

Strikers/Forwards: -
Salomon Rondon, Ayoze Perez, Yoshinori Muto, Dwight Gayle, Joselu.
Salomon Rondon is on loan from West Brom. Joselu will be available for transfer. Gayle wants to play in the Premiership. Rafa didn't want to loan him out but it was the only way to get West Brom to loan NUFC Rondon. Perez has mentioned wanting to play in Spain.

Rondon/Main Striker, LB/LWB, Centre Midfield, 2nd choice goalkeeper then possible upgrades elsewhere seem to be the priority areas (after securing Rafa as manager).
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

If you're buying a new RWB I'd rather buy a first-team one than a sub for Yedlin.

I kind of want to keep Gayle if possible. I don't see us buying two strikers and I can't deal with Joselu as second choice. Plus if we have Rondon as first choice I'd want a different type of striker as an alternative.

Come home Dwight.

Same, definitely.

Reckon Woodman is ready to be reserve keeper?

He is off surely. He should have been reserve keeper this year or at least on loan. We have stitched him up a bit imo.

It is a huge turn over this summer one way or another.

Personally keeping the likes of Diame, Ritchie, gayle and Shelvey seems smart as squad players. The issue there is that none want to be that.

If Rafa is gone there is a whole pit of players that Charnley and Ashley could and likely will cash in on. Lascelles, Perez, Schar, Shelvey (ironically more likely to stay if Rafa goes), Dubravka could all be sold imo.

If Rafa stays we are still looking at exits for Kennedy, Diame, Joselu, Ritchie, Shelvey and Hayden. We will also be looking to shift most of our loanees, Lazaar, Colback, Aarons, saivet, sterry. Wouldn't rule out Muto or Atsu leaving.

The only place we don't need improving is Central defence and possibly Goalkeeper (although we have been linked with a back up forever so don't be surprised to see at least two of blob, woodman and darlow leaving).

We need two new starting fullbacks for either side
at least two new central midfielders if not 3
one more winger if not two
two strikers (one if Rondon stays)

It's a hell of an overhaul ahead for whomever is in charge.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.
