This year SAF has played regularly: De Gea (21), Rafael (21), Welbeck (21), Jones (19) and Smalling (21).
Cleverly (21) and Anderson (23) both got injured, but would had a lot of games this season.
SAF is as brave now as ever if you ask me. He is clearly building a new team. And we should appreciate that we have a very good mix of young talent, players in their mid 20's, and the experienced players in their 30's.
The balance of this team is a sign of the genius of SAF.
And I'm pretty sure he will bring in 2-3 new players this summer, and hopefully Pogba stays.
As always the other young ones will go on loan first.
