It looks like Mata does not fit the current United system either. I feel bad for him.
he will start the next 3 games. he has to show that he should be played over Rooney in that position. i personally think he is superior in that position
+2
personally i think wayne is better than mata even at cam in the league vs tough oppoisiton.

sure mata will have better ball control and maybe more creativity, but wayne will probably score more goals, test the keeper from distance, get about the same assists, and will do defensive work and will not get shoved off the ball every 20 seconds. i like mata: he's crafty, creative, scores goals, but i find it annoying how cheaply he gives the ball away sometimes and he cant win it back. he's got the ability to out-perform wayne there as a playmaker but he's got to raise the other aspects of his game imo. he knows the league well, shouldn't be to hard for him to boss the position, i just hope he turns up because going forward to create he should be putting rooney to shame given his ability on the ball and his vision but the other parts of his game concern me.
The thing is if you play 4-1-2-1-2 with 2 lazy strikers (rvp and falcao) then you definitely need the cam to be hard working player to compensate. I think Mata would suit 4-2-3-1 behind the striker.
Yeah, as said above, I don't think it's because he doesn't fit in the system- honestly, one of the reasons the system is there is to accommodate our attacking talent and compliment it with a #10, albeit one who has to contribute more defensively.

The problem is that we have RvP and Falcao as forwards, who are both contributing. Rooney is captain, and honestly our best player from last season. These things in mind, in addition to what SIF mentioned, it's up to Mata to displace Rooney, despite how good Mata is in that position.
I love the "park the bus" tactic on FIFA 15. Works good when you are playing against pacy teams (Real Madrid).

There should be another tactic though, called "bore the opposition to death with side/back passes" named after Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich are beasts when they need to be, anything else is an off day for leisurely passes.

Well what are they supposed to do when u park a bus of 11 people behind the ball.
+2
@KingLucas Flip the bus

What is your favorite Premier League stadium(s) and why? (cannot be from the club you support)
-----------------
Mine is between the Etihad and Emirates. Emirates because of their sheer size and how lovely it looks from TV, and Etihad b/c of their transparent big nets (looks nice when a goal is scored), also i get to see Tunnel CAM :D

I also like Stadium of Light b/c their nets are very loose and when someone scores the whole net bounces up, for me it looks really cool on TV (kind of mimics the Bridge's nets).
+2
White Hart Lane. I like the square shape and full enclosure. Liberty Stadium and Anfield too, for pretty much the same reasons.
+3
I have been to stadium tours of Barca , Emirates, Bridge and old trafford during my visit to UK and Europe couple of years back....Like you mentioned Emirates looks beautiful from both inside and outside. Also has a lot of modern facilities compared to others.

In PL it is Emirates hands down...but old trafford not too far.
Anfeild, the atmosphere is incredible
+14
Old Trafford for obvious reasons, so many great memories there.
Anfield on CL games is also breathtaking.

My favourite rival stadium has (had) to be Highbury though. It was small but intimidating and was home to my favourite rivalry in PL history by far. Just thinking about United-Arsenal rivalry back then, the Viera-Keane rivalry, the Fergie vs Wenger rivalry, the Ruud pen miss, Henry being a demi-God, etc. gives me chills. Good times.

-James park for sure newcaslte UTD-
-Millienum staduim cardiff in wales ,
-fulham utd stadia
-the new bristol rovers stadia
-westham utd
-hullcity stadia



and as architect i will pick wembley staidum by Great british architect norman foster
I love the shape and design of the Emirates..it feels so modern..so ahead of it's time..Etihad is a close second
The Britannia
+2
I do quite like the KC Stadium (bit biased because i studied in Hull and support them when they're not playing Arsenal).

The design is modern and there is a great atmosphere for both football and rugby.
Obviously we all know which is the best but I'll throw an interesting one out there, I think the Hawthorns is a really cool stadium. It feels like a cauldron, everyone is so close to the pitch and even if you're in high seats, I'd imagine you've got a great view.

St James's Park. The glass ceiling always draws my attention. The atmosphere is also great when the fans are right behind the team.
Special mention to Old Trafford, i love how the whole stadium is raised, small hills around the border of the pitch, ur pretty much free falling if you run out of bounds lol
Old Trafford...I love how over the past few years we have went there we come away with a win and I love to see the fans faces...priceless.
+3
etihad, i like how the seats look
+19
^lol
+3
Game, set, match
+4
Selhurst Park. The stadium itself has a certain rickety charm to it. Then you factor in the ridiculous amount of excitement the fans provide and it is just over the top.
Rekt
+3
lol..Yup some mighty fine blue seats, it's a shame the seats can't cheer, lord knows they would do a better job than the "City fans" smh
Old Trafford, Villa Park, Britannia
I also like how Villa park has been a 3 point park for us in years
friends

want ask you , if you had a dream every day you put your headfon and walk , every night , every weekend and play fifa , to score goal , celebration with fans

to be football player ,!! you can do it when you 24 or 25 years old ?

i mean you plan to go club and enter the tests and wait , its kind a risk ?????


im architect , earn well ,
but i had chance to go germany , wismar [master studies ] which is near hamburg , hamburg had very poor result , they might need players to refresh .......thinking to swtich my career , but my age...?? !!!!

thanks friends anyway
Are you trying to say you are 24/25 who is an Architect and want to switch career to be a footballer? In that case DON'T DO IT! it's already too late.
+9
I am 33 years old and I am a mgmt consultant. I have an equal chance of switching careers as you Booba. You would had known the answer to your question when you were 16 or 19 latest imho. Concentrate on your architecture.
Tp put it in perspective, how many decent footballers do we know that started their careers at age 25? It's not impossible, but very far-fetched. If you're already doing something you're good at, why not keep going?
+1
concentrate on being an archie. its too late for a footballing career sadly
+1
isnt he joking?
+2
thanks reddevil , i guess you are true

however i was play in club for 4 years before university
joeymac , my friend , you are right , i just found my self in sport career could achieve more fast and more sucessful , which make me morey happy , its about more , , the current situation isnt too bad really
It's too late for a pro football career, you can definitely still play for an amateur club and who knows, if you're really good you might be able to play semi-pro for a while.
thanks mate , thank you guys , my distnation really to join hamburg fc , as i will stay in hamburg , but i feel i will not start from zero , if i could switch career

i just feel i could be one of greatest , something inside pushing me to do this , anyway
I gave up at 19, because of a bad injury I suffered. I gave up not because I thought it was too late to go back and still be skillful enough but because I knew I was no longer going to be fit enough. The kind of shape you were in at that age, compared to now would be much different I imagine. Stick with architecture, that's a brilliant career.
+3
great comment i guess i relaize it mate , thank you
Even if you were good enough for league football somewhere. It would probably take you multiple years just to get there. If you happened to be good enough for a top league it would probably take you 5+ to get there and then you would be basically done. Going the long way like that isn't easy.
Getting used to seeing Man United hovering around 7th place.
+24
You should also start getting used to seeing Costa at #1 of the top scorers list too.
Still not getting used to seeing you with 75% ball possesion all the time.
+2
And i don't think i'll ever get used to Adebayor's current hairstyle
+7
oh bless your heart, you must have been waiting all summer to share that with us. until now, we haven't been in 7th since May, but here your comment arrives just on cue. thanks for caring mate :)
+2
Still not used to a team like Leicester asserting it's dominance
+1
Jagielka! What a beauty, my goal of the day.
+3
Granted Goal of the Week, maybe goal of the season ?
i wouldn't say its goal of the season but goal of the month for sure
+4
Pelle had a world class goal as well.
+1
Di Maria's goal against Leicester has got to be the Goal of the month
+5
Pellrs goal was better.
The goal from the qpr guy was amazing too
+1
A CB scores that kind of goal in the 91st minute and robs us 2 points in a derby match. #Unfreakingbelievable
+7
^ @KingLucas - watch the City/Bayern game. Equally painful
+2
Are Southampton for real? Haven't been able to watch any games. Can't tell if this is a fortunate spurt or the real deal...
I'd say overperforming but I expect them to finish higher than 8th this season.
biggest team unity in the league goes a long way
+1
Damn, Costa is a complete machine. Mourinho says he isn't even training? Not sure I want to see Costa fully fit cause he's already banging in goals for fun.
