Dortmund loss again.
You know there is gonna be an auction in the summer when they can't make CL.
LVG has to make it his mission to go for Hummels and Reus. Reus' 25 mil clause will kick in so it will eventually become a game of what the big clubs can offer and I think only here he can be a starter in his favourite position and the club can match any other top teams salary offer, and for Hummels well you know.
Just saying..Ashley Young does not deserve the type of criticism you guys give him sometimes...I'm not saying because of his assist today, but he seems to come-up with crucial assists and goals every now and then.
Dude, he's terrible! The only thing I can say to defend his decent games as of late is that he's got Mata, Falcoa, RvP, Rooney, and Di Maria around him...he probably feels like a better player being included among them. His bad completely outweighs his good about 95 to 5%
+5
Ashley as Wing back, yes, I believe most of us are satisfied. But if its Ashley as Winger, then its a big no.
+1
We will trade you Young for Hazard if you want.
+4
Lol...Ok maybe because I just watch the highlights I don't get to see the bad part.
He's been solid this season and accordingly the criticism has almost completely gone away.

However the previous 2 seasons he was absolutely awful and deserved every criticism (not abuse) that he got. He never beat his man, couldn't deliver a cross to save his life. On top of that he made some pretty disgraceful dives that put our club to shame.

Even though he's improved now I've always thought he was one of the most cowardly footballers I've ever seen and I wouldn't be sad for 1 second if he left our club.
+1
he's inconsistent, and doesnt have the quality of a real top player. but he can do a job when called on, and today he did well on the left.
+2
Last couple of games he has done quite well. But the others are right. He is too inconsistent and his performance drops when you move him up to the wings.
+1

Probably not a fair comparison, but this was what I was expecting the least Evans could do against Benteke. Play smart, don't go physical with him since you will lose, when he heads the ball, give him a small nudge so he would miss head the ball, when midfield gives him the ball, get to the ball before him or force him to his uncomfortable positions. Evans just went straight head to head with Beneteke today and he lost every time.

I remember we all thought what Evans faced today was what will happen to McNair against Lukaku.
+1
Watching the highlight, Evans tried to put a body on Benteke and missed completely lol. If he had just read the ball better then it would have been a easy clearance.
Evans will be gone this summer.
+2
Evans has gone right down the shitpan.

In the 11-12 season he looked like Rios heir, he's regressed so badly and for me he is the one out of all of our CB's whose OT future is under the most threat given he is the senior man in that department yet has performed the shittiest.

@AndiUnited

I agree mate, its not looking good for him, cant believe how bad his passing has become, used to be his biggest strength.
26 years of age and still performing like in his early 20's... he have to make way for McNair

I did see him as the next Rio too, he used to play smart and was good with his technical ability and decision making.
I really like Evans, but I agree with all of you, it's just not good enough from the most experienced CB at the club.
+2
^^
he only seemed good because he played next to evra,rio or vidic
+1
He never seemed good
Tony if you're reading this, I think it's time to admit maybe we weren't wrong about Evans after all :P
‏@OffsideLiam

"LvG has confirmed that Ander Herrera is in fact injured and not ill."

I'm not even suprised.
I may have panicked a bit too soon.

https://www.facebook.com/anderherrera/photos/a.1463527350587264.1073741829.1448777165395616/1512279985712000/?type=1&theater

"Well done mates! One more point to keep us in the top positions. I can't be with the team today due to a little injury, but I will be ready again soon. Cheers to everyone!"
Ugh. Injury prone players will be the death of me. Bring in another CM that is like Anderson but not like Anderson. Need a CM that can run with the ball further up the pitch. Like Hazard, Modric etc
He said he has a small muscle problem.
Hopefully he will be able to play against Newcastle.
Herrera only had 4 injuries in 4 seasons and 2 occurred within half a season with us... he isn't injury prone until he joined us lol

Jones only injured once in 49 games for Blackburn, but he's averaging one injury per 13.75 games for us. He's another who's not injury prone until he joined us.

Owen Hargreaves was another one who turned injury prone after joining us.

Conclusion is, not matter who we sign, the player will very likely become injury prone.
wonder is it our training workload or the physios?
You have to expect injuries though. No one can play every game in 1 season without getting injured.

IMO the best case scenario would be if a player is only out injured for 30-45 days in a season.

Once a player misses around 60 days then you can put him in the injury prone list.
Does anyone think Wilson is not ready yet? In most games I barely even notice he's on the pitch. He's gotten quite a few chances and hasn't taken them, while Januzaj stays on the bench.

I'm confident he has the quality required to it make it at United and I love that we're giving youth chances but perhaps it's a bit too soon to involve him as much with the first team.
Especially when we have to bench Falcao or RVP to bring him on.
he has raw pace to burn but against villa earlier fighting for the ball with close proximity in contact i believe RVP would do better. Perhaps wilson needs a few more games.
Thoughts on Falcao? I thought he looked good today, each time he got the ball he held on to it and played a positive pass. His headed goal was great as well, and he kept getting into good positions throughout the game.
Falcaos movement is immense, amongst the best I've seen.

Not enough creativity for him though, I think SiF said it a page or so back that the supply just wasn't therefor the frontmen.

Needs more Herrera lol.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUYEj_HJm28

He did what he need to do against Stoke though, the first time he started. Unlike Januzaj, forward position need supplies when our midfield have been poor, plus Januzaj's position faces two defenders max while Wilson's position have to deal with 4 to 6 defenders surrounding him. Hard to compare the chances and game time they're getting.

Falcao is master class though he still need a bit more game time to reach his top form again. Like MUFC said, our midfield supply have been terrible, RVP and Falcao did not have enough chances to show what they've got.
In hindsight that was a solid point away from home, wasn't a great performance, shame we couldn't capitalise on the man advantage but winning 7 on the bounce in this division is very difficult, bound to be a slip up sooner or later.

Cant believe BOTH Fellaini and Herrera have come down with illness this week... We've got no luck at all on the injury front, we really could have done with one of them today as I thought Fletcher was dire.

Made up for El Tigre, he was desperate for that goal after a lot of bad luck with injuries, I hope this is a start for him now and we can keep him fit.

If there's a silver lining to the result it might calm down some of the hysterics both in the media and in our fanbase who were thinking we were about to launch a title challenge lol, perspective people, 3rd is the target and I'm confident we will achieve it.
+3
With Rafa and Rojo back, can we expect a 4-4-2 or at least a back 4 instead of a back 5? I really miss the full backs joining the attack and giving an outlet for our wide play, at the moment it's only the wing backs who are in wide positions and they don't have the skill/confidence to regularly beat their markers, it results in poor crosses or back passes. Young put in a decent shift today, but we need more chances to be created from our wide play. Look at city, Zabalata is just brilliant at finding gaps between the opposition defence to burst forward, and more often than not it proves to be the difference.
+2
3rd place would be a successful season if added onto a decent FA Cup run. That's one area where we've disappointed in recent years, it's way past due that we get to that final. We've got the depth and class in attack to do it, so I'm adding that to our list of very achievable goals.

I was wondering where Herrera was. He is a huge difference maker for me. He compliments well with Carrick when they play together. He's really the one that transitions our defense into attack.

In my opinion, we should always be going into Villa Park aiming for a win. But as you say, winning 7 in a row is a tough ask. And to have won so many consecutively without actually playing all that great, I'll take it.

Edit- Oh, and I'm a little pissed off that Benteke, who hasn't scored in ages, comes in and scores a wonder goal against us.
Zabaleta was great with the overlaps and diagonal runs today, we were missing Rafael badly I can't wait for him to be back in the starting lineup. Shaw too!
I'd say with Rafael, Shaw, Rojo, Herrera and Blind back, we'd be good enough to challenge for the title. We are missing so much from them, especially Rafael and Shaw, they would create many chances on the wings.
+2
We really missed Felli today as well.
+1
fellaini was really missed. herrera as well. We needed at least one of them to have a grip on the game.
+1
Aston Villa is one of those games we need Fellaini...
+1
Rooney, when asked about the title: "We know what our aims are."

I think the thoughts of the team are very much on securing a champions league spot.

We're an interesting team at the moment. We have so much good attacking talent, but not enough strength in the core of the pitch to let that attack go insane. I'm just never convinced with us playing 3 at the back, but we keep getting points in it lol. But until we get a solid midfielder and defender, we can't talk about the title.
As United fans we've been accustom to challenging titles in the premier league era that some fans think we have a God given right to win it all the time.

If I say we're aiming for top 3 atleast is because I'm being realistic, I would love to see us challenging for the title but our defence and midfield still needs sorting out
+1
we are still just 7 points gap with the top 2. things could quickly change in 3 games. if we win, they draw or lose. we were much further in previous months.

But I agree with joey that we need at least one more top class midfielder and defender for a title winning team. Right now. so far so good for LVG.
@zhenwei I like your optimism but we have to focus on out target 1st.

Carrick was speaking about our title chances and now we drop points.
yea. i guess one game a time mate :)
That last curler left foot shot by wilson at the edge of the right side outside the box is a favourite angle I always shoot from with finesse on fifa HAHA. For a moment I almost jumped out of my seat lol.
Benteke scored it
i missed the first half... Gosh i just saw the replays. Finesse shot.
Benteke 's goal was almost Aguero like! Jonny boy ball watching.
+1
Jonny broke his ankles in that play :/
