As we come to the end of a season that seemed to promise so much yet has ended only as a moderate success (for all of Arsene Wenger's Gallic indifference, The Carling Cup is a trophy to be picked up), we, as Manchester United fans, have seen a collapse of the erstwhile virtually unstoppable team.
That this season would be an overachievement with the current squad had already been painfully highlighted by Barcelona in the Champions League final in Rome last year. And yet no one had predicted the collapse of United in such a spectacular fashion in just a matter of a week, that too at a point in the season when United are traditionally the strongest.
Naturally, for all the manager's team selections and tactics, if the personnel are not good enough, then no plan would survive contact with the enemy.
This is exactly what has happened with United, with several below-par performances from key players ruining games for the team.
Hence, based on this season's showing and the signs that were evident even last year, I've compiled a list of players who should move on in order for United to become a better team.
