Manchester United V Tottenham Hotspur, Sep 29

Giggs-38, scholes -37, carrick-30.... The 1st half midfield is slow and probably the oldest in the premier league. Sure, Scholes is a pass master but someone has to do the running and tracking back for him. The sight of opposition cutting through the midfield like cheese is so tormenting to watch. Time for cleverly and anderson to step up. Thought Kagawa played well on the left midfield and cutting in to attack

Completely agree with Anderson and Cleverly. While they aren't as good singularly as Carrick and Scholes they work well as a team and offer a lot of energy and movement which is what United thrive on. I also think Kagawa is struggling a bit with the physical side of the game much like Silva did when he first arrived so I think it would be best he starts in low key games until he gets used to it or plays on the left in a 4-2-3-1 much like he does for Japan. I thought he played a lot better in the second half but I noticed that he kept drifting into the middle which forced all our play to the right and when it did come to the left Evans (Uniteds LCB) was supporting Evra instead of Kagawa.

The only other option United have is to invest in a CDM or someone who is willing to go box to box and considering the club hasn't made a move for one in 3 seasons I can't see it happening

I don't think manchester red win any ofthe trophies this year/.... No offence.... They have no creativity in midfield.... If you look at other teams, you can see every team has midfield generals except man utd.... Mousa demble for tott, silva and nasri for man city, gerrard for liv'pl, hazard for chelsea, carzorola for arsnal etc....
It is not their defence has their problem.... Utd midfield is like zero.... Should brought atleast one world class midfielder....

This is one of the biggest fallacies in football. For a start Dembele, Carzorla and Hazard all play behind the striker and can't be described as midfielders and if you want to call them that United have Kagawa, Rooney and Van Persie who all play in the hole very well. Nasri and Silva play as wing forwards and interchange with Tevez so again they aren't what you'd call midfielders. The only player you described as a midfielder is Gerrard and that isn't the type of player United need. What they do need is someone willing to actually sit back and cover.

Lets face it Carrick isn't a holding midfielder he's a slightly above average deep lying playmaker who lacks pace where as Scholes is also a playmaker who can't tackle but makes up for it by being one of the best passers in football even though he's 37. What I've been saying for years is that United don't have a problem creating chances the problem always was because in the last 3 seasons they've had a legend in VDS replaced and massive amounts of injuries at the back along with their only real CDM sick away from football. Anyone who plays football knows you have to be confident in your backline and feel comfortable in knowing that your defence can clear your problems up and if you don't you can never feel free enough to go forward and express yourself in an attacking sense and that's what has been stiffling Uniteds attack the fact that they have no solid backline with a Fletcher, Hargreaves or Keane covering

I didn't go through technical version.... What I thought is their back line is weak as you said.... But they are not creating chances from central areas, they are mostly using wingers to create goal scoring opportunity.... But seriously they lack flair in central.... A midfielder like demble, modric or lets say kaka is the answer for their woes....
For me carrik is as good as barry.... And kagawa is the best buy for them....

I am united fan but there are some realities as we see yesterday, firstly united should replace its defenders especially evans shouldnt be in lineup. Also scholes and giggs are finishing their careers, they should implement some additions like chelsea who added mata and hazard. I wanted much hazard would come to manu. I can guess he will create differencies when it is a hard situation.
At the end bale was unbelieavable. He won't be in tottenham next year I suppose. Tottenham defended very well and manu was unlucky

This is why ferdinand and carrick should NOT be selected for england.
Ferdinand has lost it and carrick is so poor against any decent midfield its staggering how he is rated at all

Just another proof that roy hodgson made some right decisions, if he did some more, maybe we could have beaten even italy and germany some months ago (against spain no real chance to be honest)

Hahah its funny how carrick looks good along side a midfielder who was doing all the work. It was scholes who ran the show which is why dembele had to mark him for the last 30mins. Carrcik was along for the ride

Sid3091 nice comment mate, shows that united supporters are still muppets

The fact of the Matter is, ferdinand IS uselesss ! All three Goals concided was due to him (and Nani as well with the first Goal)
I havent seen a Worse Defender in a Long time lol.... And please Man UTD supporters don't give me s**t, 'cause I'm a Man UTD supporter as well, But I give Credit were Credit is due, and also give Critism were it is due.

I would have sub'd Ferdinand off after half an hour, that s**t he was. Rather have Hernandez play Central Back then him.

Just saying Goo TSV !

After Kagawa's goal, I expected more goals to rain down for either side but it just stopped there, Tottenham just wanted to defend the scoreline. If it was Southampton we could have won the battle but Tottenham have much better defending, experience and stamina which lasted until the end. AVB did a really good job

I still can't quite believe that after the Kagawa goal we lasted 40 more minutes...
