Watching MU Archive from MUTV yesterday, it was showing semi-final FA Cup matchup against Chelsea in 1996. There's a few things that were similar to our current situation. Pallister and Bruce were out injured, so Gary had to play CB and Phil and Lee Sharpe had to play fullback. The team was unbalanced, even so, the team were diving into challenges, double team all the time, Schmeichel was saving the team countless times. What was unbelievably identical was Cantona clearing the ball off the line just like Young did against Stoke, no idea why he was there.

I think LVG definitely brought the fighting spirit was had back this season. Hope we get a comeback victory as soon as possible, we only managed to get 3 points from games we conceded first. And wish we have a modern Cantona :D

Btw, this is the game:

We should abandon the back 5 system..not even one of the top clubs in the world are using it and that's because its unsuccessful. Also a lot of players don't train to be a L/RWB in their career and as a result they are s**t at it..like Young for eg.
Juve use it, bayern also use it but the problem with ours is our center backs are a bunch of girls, they panic with every little attempt the opposition takes to close them down....

Especially johnny evans who has been showing his true colour as a Garbage defender because Rio and Vidic are not around to hide his weakness anymore

I posted it earlier, lvg says we are using this system because Rafa and shaw are out. We only have 2 natural fullbacks. Technically we are playing 3-4-1-2. Young and Valencia are supposed to be wide midfielders but play more like wingbacks because we are not dominating teams. Villa let us hold the ball so young was able to play the position correctly and go up the pitch.

If our defenders stop giving our opponents goal scoring opportunities like evans does every single time the formation won't be much of a problem.

Our player still don't know how to use this formation though, our attacks are flat because we hardly penetrate our opponents 18 yard box.
We just pass the ball from side to side, backwards until it reaches de Gea
no creativity at all

they hardly try to make a forward opponent piercing pass.

For ex,Last match Rooney could have passed it forward to player who was free in front of him,instead he chose to square it off to Valencia.
Rooney only sees Valencia I guess LOL

And our defenders,dear me,won't even need to say it.

Our players panic too much when opponent press.
Also Only time we play better is that with Herrera in the team,he makes us click!

don't think of it like a 5-3-2. that's how Hull play. think of it like a 3-4-3 - the idea is to use the wingbacks to create triangles in wide areas, working towards the goal quickly. with three strikers on the field we may not create much, but we'll score those chances.

sure we have a lack of creativity, that's not new, we've lacked a bit of spark for many years now. we have always relied on wing play to advance the ball and create chances.

there are two reasons for this imo - one is too many strikers on the field at once - rooney isn't really a 'creative' player. he's not a quick passer, throughball master or a dribbler, but his first-touch finishing is as good as it gets. he's an old-fashioned second striker, maybe not ultra-modern but he puts up consistent numbers of goals and assists despite not looking comfortable in midfield or against a tight press. he will not help us control games but he will finish chances - just look at the liverpool game.

the second and most obvious cause is a weakness in the central midfield positions. we don't have aggressive ball-winners or snappy technicians that would allow us more control in games (so the wingers get forward more). often when carrick plays in midfield it means the whole team moves up the field ten yards and the wingers fifteen or twenty. doesn't take a genius to see how much effect a weak midfield has on your general play. LVG does mention how we need to keep better care of the ball - this isn't just for form's sake. it means our whole team spends less time worried about defending and instead can work on creating chances.

we have rarely, just for a few short periods, genuinely looked the business this season. there's certainly more to come; but the first priority is to gain control of midfield.
You do know Rooney created 2 chances for RVP and 1 of them left RVP open to goal?
Correction:one of them left RVP open to "cross",which he tried to with his right leg,but went straight to Guzan and ended up looking like a cross. LOL
Still, its not the usual Rooney with so little key passes. Others were pretty much walking outside the box side passing.

Anyway, we should revert to back 4 as soon as possible
We should sign Gerrard next Season and win him a premier league title before he retires.
+2
we could bring jamie carraghar out of retirement as well, to give gerrard company..
Owen did it. he was as much liverpool as gerrard.
nahh f**k gerrard
Or he could go on loan to Chelsea this window
And then ask him to f**k off like dumping a waste into a bin:)Oh wait...he is in the scouse waste now.

Seasons Greetings and be safe.
