lol, fulltimedevils did one year anniversary prank at Liverpool city centre. I want one for my colleague >:D
3 wins out of the last 6 games wasn't an unreasonable ask. 3 wins out of 4, however, now that starts to feel like things could get hairy.

Yes, I know we only really need 2 wins and 2 draws. That makes it even worse in some ways because we need 4 proper results (as opposed to 3 if we are to win them all).
Liverpool helped us out by not beating WBA.

Oddly enough, we play pretty much the same opponents that they do- we have to play Palace, Hull, and WBA (who they just played), and they have to play Hull, Palace, and Chelsea (who we just played).

The result against Everton really has put us in squeaky bum time, and the game against Arsenal will make it even squeakier... but I'm thinking we should be okay. We really helped ourselves out by beating Spurs, City, and Liverpool- effectively 6 pointers, all of them.

Liverpool will have a lot to play for, but I don't think Chelsea will want to lose to them, even after they've won the title. And Stoke is always a tough fixture, no matter who it is. The crowded fixture list may hurt them, this isn't the free-scoring Liverpool of last season, they're struggling to find goals.
the only game we need to think about is west brom. one game at a time lads. that and lets hope carrick is back asap. 6s and 7s with blind as cdm, he just doesn't have the awareness and positioning of carrick.

early goal cost us since eveerton just sat back and hit us on the break. first goal was shambolic defending from a set piece. second goal was poor marking and failure to recognize a tactic everton used on previous corner. for me fellaini has to either stay on the line or mark an area and attack the ball. his half assed play there cost us that goal. why valencia is marking that cb instead of someome tall, i'll never know.

third goal defense went to sleep. comical really.
Joeymac - I cant assure you about Chelsea winning the league yet, But the one thing i can assure you right now is - Chelsea won't lose to Liverpool.

and what are you willing to wager to support that statement bazinga? ^^
^^ that depends... will gerrard be playing
depay said he has never talked to man utd

http://www.espnfc.com/story/2421044/memphis-depay-i-havent-spoken-to-manchester-united

we are linked with so many good players, i won't believe in anything even if it comes from sky sports until the players officially hold the jersey
Club has to grant him permission to talk to any club. Typically this means the two clubs have to agree terms first. Anything else would be a breach of contract. Not surprising to hear this cover-your-ass speak.

Bale is a great player but surely we are not going to land him for a price he is worth.
http://worldsoccertalk.com/2015/04/27/louis-van-gaal-rules-out-chicharito-return-to-manchester-united/

oh dear god... is LVG planning to pay 40m for Falcao?
Chicha isnt returning, Falcao isnt staying. We are likely to look for a new striker

Seriously, even though Falcao had been pure s**t this season, part of me still have faith in him. Probably because of his past.
Vermaelen declared fit for the first time since joining barca 8 months ago.

Lol and we almost got that.
Bullet dodged but he's still better than all our current defenders when fit
+2
Idt he is any better than Smalling on current form, or Rojo when fit
Drde159. Verms is a brilliant defender when fit.

You can't compare him with Smalling as Smalling isn't the same aggressive type player as Verms. You need balance. One aggressive and one not.

CB is about pairing more than anything else.
+1
Can't compare him with Smalling but you can with Jones. Aggressive and Injury.

In our case, Smalling would be Rio type while Jones and Rojo is Vidic type.
Idk vermaelen is an agressive type. but if so he will never be the same after his injury. Just like vidic.
^Exactly. I also think as a defender gets older he has more knowledge of the game which means he can be the marshal in the back. He'll be the slower one while the other being the attack minded.

Smalling for me me seems he'll be the next big defender. I think he already has the attributes with the only thing now is him knowing how to dictate play well from the back. Along with great aerial ability he also has beautiful strides going forward through the middle which I believe is a big big reason why Arsene wanted him in the first place.

Barring injuries Smalling will be world class I think in a couple years time.

You guys need to build around him and not Jones who's more injury prone. If he's paired with the right personnel (more experienced) I think your defense will be solid as far as CB pairing.
you guys are getting Gündoğan who has missed more games than vermaelen due to injury over last 3 years
+1
@Bazinga

Well that's just not true.

Gundogan has made 74 appearances since the beginning of the 2012-2013 season (three years ago give or take a few games) compared to Vermaelen who has managed 60 during that period, not sure what the ratio of starts to sub appearances is but that's irrelevant as we're talking appearances here, granted Vermaelen may have had better availability last season but got less starts/sub appearances than he would have liked at Arsenal but that's harder to calculate as its hard to tell when Vermaelen is genuinely "available".

Its an unfair comparison anyway as Gundogan had that mystery back issue which kept him out for pretty much the entire 2013-2014, an issue he is recovering from given that he has featured 26 times this season (all comps), granted its not a rapid recovery but progress is there.

Vermaelen on the other hand (unlike Gundogan) is well known for serial injury problems that have plagued his career, Barcelona must have bought him half fit as he has not managed a single appearance for them and there in lies the difference, we look to be buying Gundogan after he has shown progress where as Barca knew exactly what they were getting and still bought Vermaelen.

It was a stupid transfer.
+3
^ agreed that Vermaelen had no of injuries , but you're forgetting he was treated by arsenal medical staff , their track record isn't ver good .

Cesc used to have minor injuries every now and then with arsenal but when he moved back to Barcelona his frequency of injuries reduced by quite a bit ,

Barca have one of the best medical team & it was surprising that our we relied on treatment done by arsenal team while completing Vermaelen signing .
+1
Cesc had an ongoing hamstring muscle tear that was aggravated by the necessity of him to play for us. It wasn't a minor injury, just one that required plenty of time off. Near the end he also fractured his shin bone. Again, hardly minor.
MUFC1990 - This is where i checked the stats for injury history...as per the stats Gundagon has missed more games than Verm.

http://www.transfermarkt.com/ilkay-gundogan/verletzungen/spieler/53622

Malik - Chelsea have the best medical staff...And its not a biased opinion :)
Not able to digest the fact we lost.All the good work done in last couple of months wiped off in two games.
A points difference of 4 pts(if liv win midweek) is nothing.Liverpool won't be far behind.I just hope we make it.3rd or 4th doesn't matter anymore.We just need to make it! Have the confidence,just hope the players don't let us down.
Wait till they play their game in hands shall we?
Maybe thats me getting nervous haha
we started season poorly and now we're finishing it poorly atleast we consistent
no Carrick, no party
+1
Toni Kroos would have been perfect to replace Carrick
kroos in not the same type of player as carrick. blind is more carrick like than kroos. same as carrick I can only think of pirlo and alonso.
+1
Kroos positions himself better and reads the game well, Blind is currently lacking in both those aspects and has a habit of pushing too far up unnecessarily.
I wouldn't take Alonso, he is making too many sloppy mistakes at Bayern from what I've seen.
Im not saying we should get either of them lol
Interesting player name:
Barcelona B forward
Jean Marie Dongou Tsafack

Unfortunately his kit name is Dongou instead of Tsafack.
"what Tsafack" cries his foes as he slams screamers into the back of the net
we are the joint 2nd youngest team in the premier league

http://imgur.com/lxB6dIh
But also the same age as Chelsea, I wonder which youngster reduced Chelsea's avg. age, their defense is a group of players in or near 30's Terry 34, Ivanovic 31, Cahill 29, Luis 29 and then they also have other oldies Drogba 37, Cech 32. Those in their early 20's rarely plays. In fact Zouma is the only early 20's player who played in the PL. So that avg. age is not a true reflection of their team. They have an experienced squad unlike us, especially their defense.

In our case, we only have Carrick 33, Valdes 33, Lindegaard 31, RVP 31, Valencia 29, Falcao 29, Young 29. The rest are around the median. And we have youth like Wilson 19, Shaw 19, McNair 20, Januzaj 20, Blackett 21 who actually plays for us in the league.
Maybe if you count all those players that are out on loan from Chelsea you could justify the average age.
I stand corrected. Courtois, Oscar, Hazard, Loftus-Cheek, Brown, etc. There are a lot of players there in the squad that are very young.

This is where I got my information for anyone who cares:
http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/fc-chelsea/startseite/verein/631
Apart from the 3 defenders, the oldest player in Chelsea starting XI is Fabregas at (soon to be) 28. We've had a young team for a while now (after 2010 when we had the oldest team in PL), regardless of the few young players in the squad who don't play.
so that's it, lvg gave a big hint that falcao's career at man utd is over

"I like Falcao as a human being, just as I like Danny Welbeck and Chicharito - they are always professional,"

"But when you are not in the team for season after season, there comes a time when you need a challenge. That’s why I have said goodbye to Welbeck and Chicharito. And now I have to talk with Falcao.”


https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/premier-league-louis-van-gaal-falcao-chance-taken-080503624--sow.html
So thats also a hint that Chicha won't come back?
@shiwa

yup

“What do you think? I gave him a chance and then I said the same thing as I did to Danny Welbeck. When you are a substitute it’s no good. And I won’t change over that. So if you score a goal you are suddenly different? I don’t think so.”
well isn't that the reason why he suddenly started playing mata over adm? because he was a difference and scored winning goals for us..that is something chicha could possibly do for us..he's small,but not afraid of any defender and will be in the box whenever the opportunity comes.
Chicha is a great impact sub and a great poacher. I would hold on to him if i was Van Gaal
^ Agree, if we managed to fix our delivery system, Chicha can score many many goals. However, if we stay with this current midfield, there's very little chance for Chicha to score. I'm sure we're going to fix it with our new signings this summer, so we should welcome him back.
what's wrong with the current mf? Our best in years. And next year it's not gonna change drastically. Gundogan will add depth but that's it.
Our current midfield falls apart when Carrick is injured or not playing. That isn't good. Also he is aging and I'd rather we do proper succession planning this as opposed to either playing a RB in that position or bringing a 39 year Carrick back out of retirement or worse play Rooney there instead.

I know that this is a horrible argument but for years now, as soon as I start a United career mode in FIFA, I end up dumping more than half the midfield we have and replace with other players. Winds up being the only area I do any business in the transfer window for the first 2 windows. I will admit that what we have this season is far more functional than any in the last 4 seasons (maybe more?). Carrick, Blind, Herrera and Fellaini are a good group and can be used very well. ADM, Mata and Rooney can play as attacking midfielders if needed. But the deep-lying passer role is certainly a weakness if Carrick isn't around and with LVG wanting to play possession based football we could use more technical players who can pass well. Fellaini doesn't excel there and Blind can be slow on the ball sometimes. I love Herrera. I think he should play all the time. Would be nice to get some cover for Carrick and another good decisive passer of the ball in the midfield.
+1
Schneiderlin could've been that guy for us but soton don't want to sell him.
But the question here is about the eventual supply to Chicha. Chicha thrives on pacy crosses and through balls. ADM provides the former and Carrick/Herrera provides the latter aplenty this season. Chicha would do well with our current mf. Back-ups are needed of course but it's a different topic entirely.
^ I didn't mean our midfield is poor, but Chicha need wingers and CAM to feed in pacey crosses and through balls like you said. But we aren't getting much of those this season compared to the few seasons Chicha have been scoring week in week out. Maybe our midfield's chemistry isn't quite there yet, but I didn't think our midfield is a poor one. But, Gundogan and Depay will increase the supplies Chicha will receive.
Please spread the word about Nepal, we are in need of help as things will only get worse.
Here are few useful links about how:
