Is Carrick/Blind enough? Is the Rooney experiment over?
Carrick is a class act but he's been injury prone and is only getting older. Blind is versatile and solid but isn't top drawer when it comes to playmaking and passing vision. Herrera has the energy to play box-to-box but lacks the defensive qualities and playmaking qualities for that role. Rooney has the defensive strength and passing skill but doesn't seem to have the vision for attack from deep midfield.
Do we need a new signing and if so, who is it? Or can one of those players (Herrera or Blind) be developed into that role while Carrick plays out a few seasons?
