Hey that was uncalled for mate, looks like he was only asking for a decent opinion.
+5
we will probably play worse type of football again, but we wont give up and probably go for win on the last minutes as United always does.

I just dont see us loosing at OT, home games aren't too bad this season.
I am going to love watching this game. Should be a fabulous one for a neutral.
We will have one shot on goal and we will win 2-0 :))

^ hahaha....Gibbsy ain't messing up again man !

@Barracuda, I didn't mean to offend him, it's how every fan should feel before a game. I'm always confident because I believe in our team. And we got a great history against Arsenal ;-)
+3
I don't see why we should be scared, yes we have tougher fixtures but if you look at it this way.

We've been much better against the top 6 sides in the league than the midtable and bottom half of the table.

I'm confident we'll play well against arsenal and liverpool because both teams don't sit back and park the bus. When we come up against teams who attack I see players who are in bad form like di Maria having a good game because he'll have much more space to run in to. Against the smaller teams who sit back we struggle to break them down.

So unless wenger adopts a cautious approach like he did against city away I don't see why we can't win against arsenal AGAIN....no offense we even beat you lot when we're absolutely s**t like last season with moyes.

In his statement he is staying he did not spit! Making things worse this guy... hm
Evans: I did not spit, I never spit
Jury: Then what is that coming out of your mouth in the video?
*Evans looks back at De Gea for help*
^ Lol disgusting
Why is the FA Cup fixture on Monday? Shouldn't it be on Sunday? Weekends are boring without United football (even though our football is pretty boring).
What a crucial victory! All of top 8 teams won their mid-week game. Now to the double home win
Race for the top4 like LVG said,will go down till the last day.
Whats going on with Luke Shaw?
tight hamstring
If you bought his jersey at the beginning of the season you're out of luck. He changed his last name to Room, first name Emergency.
he's just 19, he shouldn't be playing week in week out like he did last season at southampton. he's still going to be developing physically until 21 or so, don't want him to ruin his career from overuse.i'd really like us to get another fullback that is comfortable on both flanks. rojo can do a job but he's needed in cb.
^ Just like El Shaarawy, he played 37/38 league games, all cup games and all European games for AC Milan at age of 19, he end up needing surgery on his foot and rested for almost the whole season. Luke Shaw played 35/38 league games and 3 cup games for Soton, lucky he didn't have to go through the same destiny as El Shaarawy.
I've called Sav a lot of things over the years but after Sholesy's mutterings he'll always be referred to as Knobhead!!!!

Another uninspiring performance from us, LVG needs to subtract a little ball control for directness but anyone who remembers me from my sporadic posts will know I'm the patient type.

Anyhoo, if we continue to get the results over our next fixture period i wont complain, I'm not a purist although i enjoy near perfect performances as much as the rest of MUFC fan's. I've been around since Sir Alex joined and I've seen all sorts of performances/results. But we need to improve exponentially over the next few weeks, at least looking at our fixtures we will not play to many teams that will purely focus on containing us/counter attacking when we get the opportunity to play with freedom and ingenuity, bring on a team will open up and try and go at us, we have the players to punish such game plans, its been proved this season. We categorically are not the team we were in the SAF era, but f**k that, numbers are all that counts in the grand scheme of things, points secured are the be all and end all.

praying for more cohesive and less frantic performances but from a non purist lets do it over the next month and show them the real MUFC!!!

Come to think of it, ADM played his best on counters with his pace and taking on defenders, this article makes a point that the "posession" style just doesnt suit the player who is more accustomed to fast paced runs and quick plays. Thoughts?

http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/newcastle-vs-manchester-united-angel-di-maria-will-take-a-year-to-shine-warns-louis-van-gaal-10083466.html
Well he was pivotal in the Madrid side last season who were probably the best counter attacking team in the world.

He needs to play LCM in a 4-3-3 with proper runners on the channels who he can supply, alternate and general thrive off.

I think our football is too slow in general and not just for ADM.
+4
we've sold/loaned out our pacy strikers in Hernandez and welbeck and Nani.. who epitomized the kind of fast paced style under SAF.

Instead opted for far (better finishing?) strikers and possession. For possession plays, i think LVG didnt need that much pacy players.. kinda makes sense the article.

Problem with that is that we don't have the players with close ball control technical ability like the current bayern/barca side that can squeeze in the narrow gaps in midfield and create space.
He doesn't suit our pointless possession style of play.

Passing the ball around and not penetrating teams thats why its so easy to defend against our style of play. Teams sit back, look to counter and hope we don't score first or get luck
+1
@Zhenwei

I agree with all that mate.

We need more pace in the side, ADM is the only real runner, Rooney has got decent speed when he gets going but that's not what he's about at all, Young and Valencia are a bit lacklustre as wingers.

I think Hernandez was never going to be valued here as his game outside the box is virtually non-existent, LVG does not like poachers, Welbeck I think was stuck between a rock and a hard place, he has good technical skills but his end product is poor and he wanted to be a forward and I don't think LVG was ever going to accept a forward with poor end product even if he did have the athletic and technical quality we needed.

I'd like to Dybala and Depay come in this summer, I think both transfers are reasonably doable and would inject real pace and technical quality into the attack, I would normally say Reus before Depay but with him signing a new contract I expect any transfer dogfight for him to get pretty out of hand and he has picked up a lot of injuries in the last 18 months, last think we need is more crocks.
This article makes perfect sense. Di Maria likes to run at defenders and run in the channels in a counter attacking style of play and when he passes the ball it's mostly direct through balls to our strikers. He just doesn't suit our style of play at the moment. He can't place simple passes to the players next to him.
Di Maria will come good with time. He'll definitely help if we make it back in Europe. His football in CL will be what we need. LVG needs to tell him to be our work horse in the CM, not our wing wizard, at least not in the league.
Everyone cant figure what is lvg thinking!!he is f*****g shet.whatt the point having possesion game if all our attack based on crossing.this is not stoke nor west ham..
+4
No. Lvg's tactics are one thing but if the players are showing no passion, no balls, no heart, then there's only so much he can do..
That being said, he really needs to drop Fellaini
+5
It's not entirely surprising as this set up reminds me a lot of the way the Dutch played during the WC. A lot of possession and nick a goal here and there and look how far they got. I'm not saying I'm happy with it, just not surprised. I think he wanted ADM to take up that Robben role but that hasn't really panned out for either of them.

His philosophy is 100% possession win you games. Seriously, not enough penetration is the problem.
I agree that our direction isn't fully clear yet, maybe he doesn't have the right players for what he wants to do, he needs to be getting more out of our players though because we have great players here.

But this is a bit OTT mate, he is not a "shet" manager.
if his philosophy is 100% possession wins you games,then i'll believe it will work..ONLY if our attack has the penetration..right now we have 0 penetration with our strikers..eventhough rooney has come back as striker,i still see him playing the role of setting players up,which is what our midfielders should be doing for rooney..imo we need a clinical striker next season to partner rooney.
With Rooney going back all the time, its almost a 4-6-0 formation isn't it?

Possession, amount of shots doesn't tell anything does it? I remember there's one extreme case in the past where Arsenal had 30 shots, 10 corners and all it took was 1 shot from opposition to lose the game.
