Fergie has said that he wanted to transform the attack to be more focussed on speed and movement. That was something that neither Berba and Owen provided. Hernandez is quick and a born predator, Welbeck is deceptively quick and Kagawa will certainly play to their strengths. Rooney is a given up front. I suspect that we will transform the way we play to acommodate Kagawa and Rooney in a 4-3-1-2 or 4-3-2-1 formation.
Assuming that there are no major unexpected departures, we would also have the personnel to switch to a 4-4-2 rather easily.
We will be challenging for honours next season, no doubt. The only we can be royally (to borrow a popular current theme) effed is we have the same level of injury as we did last season - a physio's annus horribilis.
