Manchester United Starting XI vs AS Roma: Johnstone; Jones, Evans, Blackett; Valencia, Cleverley (c), Herrera, James, Welbeck; Mata, Rooney
Be a big lift for Clevs getting the captiancy, smart tactics I guess, if he can settle into the system he can do a job for us.

Nice to see Blackett get a chance although I would of preferred M.Keane. I can see Valencia playing that wing back role a lot this season.

Is Van Gaal trolling us making Cleverley captain lol
Well lets hope he proves himself and repays Van Gaal for his decision.
I'd say its a vote of confidence if anything Cjay.

It cant hurt, even if he does end up going in a few weeks or whatever.
He is a good professional and LVG likes people like that. As MUFC said it will boost his confidence. Dont see any downside to it.
Strong rumours that Cleverley will be captain tonight. There are probably 2 reasons behind this.
1)He's playing the full 90 minutes.
2)It will give him a huge confidence boost.
Anyone got the link for the match?
check your wall
what time is kick off?
3 1/2 hours till kick off
in about 3 hours and 20 minutes, i think. game is at 2pm in denver and it's almost 11:am there right now.

big game for blackett and cleverley, they will be the only ones playing 90 minutes according to LVG
9.10pm kick off in the UK. Real Madrid vs Inter on at 11pm.

A comparison of Moyes and LVG's first press conferences.

Rabbit in the headlights comes to mind when looking at Moyes lol.
Anyone else watched this video, cringed at the Moyes sections, and skipped all of them only to listen to LVG?
One of the top comments, which I think is very true.

"Moyes spoke like he was grateful that Manchester United gave him the job.

van Gaal speaks like Manchester United should be grateful that he accepted the job"

"Congratulations on signing the best coach in the world."
After being named as Ajax manager in 1991

"I have achieved more with Ajax in six years than Barcelona has in one hundred years."
Once installed as the new Barcelona coach

"I’ve signed a contract with the Dutch national team until 2006, so I can win the World Cup not once but twice."
Van Gaal in 2000 ... before failing to qualify for the 2002 World Cup
yikes, no wonder barca press hated him.
so thats why he is mou's old daddy. theres also quotes where he refers himself in 3rd person
I lol at some of his interview at Barca it was classic especially if you can understand Dutch
Drills look similar to what Rene was doing.
check out this channel, has some videos of United training in Denver.

nvm hes there,
am i the only one that didnt see Nani in these videos?
rafa wont play, seems to have did his groin in training on friday. this is getting ridiculous, we need another rightback. 7 separate injuries last season and he's already got a knock after 1st pre season game.

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/jul/26/louis-van-gaal-to-speak-with-jose-mourinho-over-luke-shaw

and now they say shaw is earning 100k per week, down from 130k just yesterday lol.
it's disappointing for rafael but valencia is perfect for the wingback spot. fletcher and cleverley could also play that and of course any of our right-footed wingers, like young or even zaha
I said it below his injuries keep recurring every season.
Daily Mail said it was 120k this morning lmao.

No one knows what Shaw is on, wages were not disclosed, I'd bet that its not a triple figure salary though, Mou is just on a wind up lol.

The press are naturally dramatizing the wages though, click bait at its best, gets people on their shitty articles and in their gutter comments sections.

Starting to think we need another RB as well SiF, with the exception of the 12-13 season Rafael has had horrible fitness throughout most of his career here.

Rafael didn't even play 90 minute against L.A Galaxy neither lol.
We DON'T need an RB!

We have Varela and Janko
+3
neither are on tour mate so YES we need another rightback. janko is a RW for our reserves btw.

i dont care who we get but we cant have rafa as our only natural right footed fullback for another season especially in this formation. We don't have enough cb to even stick smalling or Jones there
Yeah Karthik is probably right, I like Varela and if we play a 3-5-2 on a regular basis I guess Valencia will be operating as a wing back too.
+1
LVG said hes taking two players per position i thought?

RWB - Rafael & Valencia

we meed a CB imo,
SIF that doesn't necessarily mean we need to buy an RB! we took Smalling as an RB to tour.

We have Varela,Janko and also Vermjil who are all quality who I think is good enough for us.
+2
When did I say buy? If the reserves are good enough then play them but the fact that they were left out of tour means they probably are not ready. Typically we loan players out before we promote them. Reece and Blackett and Kean have all been loaned out, same with vermjil. I doubt any of them will be promoted but fact remains we need another option in the squad. I hope verela and saidy can get a loan sometime soon and come back stronger
longer hererra comp:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g-6w37x4Ng&list=UUJRB_jLtQ5vfc2KCcKLG_iA

second half he seems to have been playing ahead of cleverley and kagawa in a midfield 3. thats where his best position was at Bilbao, as a #10 behind the striker, but obviously he's very comfortable deeper in central midfield.
He is comfortable at 10 but I disagree that its his best position.

He has excellent defensive contributions and is brilliant at carrying the ball forward with his silky dribbling skills something we really lack in CM.

I can see him really thriving in CM here, really has everything he needs to blossom into a complete midfielder.
Herrera himself said the other day that he can play left, right or as a 10 - and is willing to do whatever for the club - but emphasised that CM is his best position.
he played 25 la liga games as a CAM for bilbao last season:

http://www.whoscored.com/Players/71174

his position for them was behind the striker, there's no debating that. that's definitely where he was his best at bilbao given thats where he played mostly. i didn't say anything about how he would play for us.

his defensive contribution and ability to transition from defense to attack quickly in various ways means he'd be a great b2b CM potentially, but all i am saying is he was playing cam in the second half where he had 2 assists and he played there all of last season for bilbao.

he would obviously be tasked with playing deeper for us, but seeing him play cam he really took it up a notch.
With his intercepting ability, its best to use him as a CM rather than up front. We need CM and I'm sure we bought him to play CM.
im expecting Cleverley to be given the same opportunity Herrera was given last game, one half as the deeper CM, the next as either the more attacking CM or CAM. since he is playing the full 90.
@SiF

Even at CAM he drops deep and really gets involved.

Definitely agree that he will be a great b2b CM for us.

eny news for ? di maria and vidal sining
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4jeREy7Pbc

sums it up for me.
+2
Sun reporting a 45m transfer for Di Maria.

Transfers nowadays are just...crazy.

Even "we" Arsenal are spending big.

And I thought transfer prices 3-4 years ago were crazy.
doesn't appear either are coming i'm afraid.
Looking forward to tonight's game. Going to be a much better test of where we are at. I much prefer friendlies against higher quality opposition. Last year we were playing some right unknowns (and struggling).

Oh yeah, anyone else think the roma badge is a little f****d up? Two kids suckling from a wolf! I know it has historical value but wtf!
+2
Haha I never noticed that!
LOL it's from the old story of how Rome was founded. The two brothers Romulus and Remus were raised by wolves.
