Rooney slows down the attack
+2
not as much as mata does
Yeah i'm really baffled as to why Mata does what he does. He's got the ability to make a defense-splitting pass yet he often either chooses a backpass, side pass or loses the ball.
I don't understand why
just a thought: what IF DDGs continue under performing before end of this transfer window, and he wont be a match decider in the next 1 or 2 games like he usually is (in case if our defense is not playing well again). For obvious reasons after 3 games bad performance Would you:

1. continue trusting him number 1 role, and deal with the fact that he is off to Spain anyway while he is not performing to his highest standards, but even then he is still better vs what we have in terms of GK options

2. want to cash in on him while we can, because his mind is already in Spain and he is already infected by a virus which has no cure yet

3. give him a chance to taste reserve team or make him burn on the bench until end of the season and touch Felli's hair while he is at it... and lets face it: who wouldnt?

4. personally roast him with ranch sauce, add some garlic, and make De Gea kebab. Yes that wont guarantee you a title, but at least it will provide you necessary protein intake before end of the day.
Think positively ^_^
Or hire Jones to do his Job.
I can't see any truth in Otamendi rumours. If LVG wants a left-footed LCB - even to the point of playing Blind there in the absence of Rojo - Otamendi makes no sense, unless he can also play on the left?
Anyone else excited about Periera? Definite first team material.
+3
That cross to Mata was gold..
+2
pereira looks the pick of the lot, brilliant feet
I think that #44 shirt gives our youngsters super powers. First Adnan now him.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOW the negativity on this forum after one defeat in friendlies is hilarious.
We're not gonna win every match next season you know?

PS. I'm not talking about constructive criticisms. I'm talking about comments like: "We haven't addressed any of our issues from last season" "If we don't sign a couple more players we're screwed" "LVG has gone mad" etc. lmao
+2
Totally agreed with you. It's ridiculous. We're not bullet proof, we're not going to win every single game, we win, we lose, we screw up, manager didn't get it right etc. these things do happen.

Like today i found out we lost to PSG and I'm was just like "aww oh well, can't win them all" *jump on the forum*= ermmm O.O lol
Is this really a surprise ? Happened plenty of times last season when a result didn't go our way. Some fans in this forums have pretty bad mood swings. as according to them LvG goes from tactical maestro to a senile old man in 90 minutes.
+2
Why you classifying all the fans as one? I've been criticising van Gaal even when we won the previous games. I can't stand his obsession of playing players out of position.
+6
No one's mad at us losing friendlies.It was a warm up for the boys before the real thing. The only worrying thing is players being played out of position which might continue even in the league.

So stating that is negative??
+8
I agree with Cjay that the playing of players out of position is seriously getting ridiculous, this obsession to detail is maddening, Blind may be left footed but he clearly will not be a suitable CB in the PL, not a chance.

But ERFANERi is right, the reaction was totally overblown, PSG scored well against the run of play and from what was largely a hoof, hardly outplayed and its only pre-season.

We swept everyone aside during last summers pre-season and started the season terribly, its just friendlies, chill out people.
+2
I think he is just tinkering; I see no reason to drop Smalling for Blind when Smalling and Jones had a decent partnership together.

Rojo is better suited for Left CD position than Blind since he has played there for Argentina. We should stick with Shaw / Rojo as the LB's and keep the Smalling and Jones as our CB's with Blind an outside CB if necessary...

Darmian has been absolutely solid at right black; I can't see Valencia getting in anytime soon!
+1
I have no issue with the result, but I was seriously disappointed seeing Blind start over smalling. Hopefully it's just for friendlies.
i will always critisize rooney, he's shite.
I don't even like coming on here after losses because most of the reactions are ridiculous.

When we play well and lose, people freak the f**k out and try to come up with excuses and put blame on certain players/coach. I'm not sure if all the people complaining have ever played before...but sometimes you lose! It's crazy, I know, but believe me it happens...
Smalling is the third captain, he has height and speed, absolutely no reason not to play him. He should be starter for the first game. No so worried so far.

Rooney needs to get his sharpness and fitness back.
lol!!!! apparently.. Bayern is interested in Pedro now..fml
thats not surprising since Pep managed him
+1
With Robben & ribery usually out injured for most of the season , Pedro will get lots of minutes at Bayern , if the interest is true then expect him to leave for pep
Sometimes i don't understand this stubbornness from LVG..We are not in situation where we can experiment on players..we need a regular line up with players playing in their primary positions..I don't understand the idea behind playing Depay in the No 9 role...giving him that number jersey doesn't make him one ffs...it was the same last time with 3-5-2 formation...it took very long for him to realize that it wont work..Now he is doing it again with depay...I really hope this changes soon..

oh ffs apparently he wants to start the spurs match with blind at lcb, as per manutd.com
and they said, relax, it's just a friendly, preseason, time to experiment.

so that's it. Our surprise striker is Memphis and Blind our surprise defender.
+1
If that the case hope we get battered 10-0
+4
He want's his LCB to be left footed.
Really ? Its very classless to wish loss upon your own team.
+5
I'd be more worried if he starts Jones. Blind has done well.
+4
This is what I was saying the other day, SIF.

I understand he wants a left-footed LCB, but surely Jones-Smalling would be better pairing than playing Blind out of position. Some very questionable decisions in terms of organisation.
I didn't think Blind did badly as a LCB. Also, with Rojo not being match-fit, I don't see the issue of Blind's selection. I would start questioning his decision if Rojo was fit and benched. I think Jones and Smalling have to battle it out for the RCB position
+1
lol you guys are hilarious because he also said he wants to play 433. preseason is for experimentation. managers mess around with players all the time. holy s**t you guys act like spoiled little brats
Blind has been better than Jones this per season though?
I'm not judging LVG and his decision to mess up players' positions during preseason because if you don't experiment you'd never find out new things. LVG was the man that reinvented Fellie who turned it around in a new position so I trust him completely.
Hopefully, we will see a better performance against Spurs
Fellie? ARE YOU COMPARING LVG TO SAF?
+2
Fellaini played in that position for years at Everton and Belgium too though. But he did see players' potential in other positions before: Schweinsteiger, for example, was a winger before LVG turned him into a controlling CM/DM
+1
Not to mention playing Robben as a ST and Kuyt as a WB.
+2
he also reinvented rooney in DM
or Di Maria in striker
or carrick in CB in 3-5-2 formation
or shaw in LWB
or Van Persie in AM

so yeah,lets just blindly trust every decision he made
+3
^ BS man, why are you so negative? He didn't continue when it didn't work out, did he?
I'm not blindly trusting every decision that he makes. I'm saying that we shouldn't judge him on experimenting player positions especially during pre-season. With so many injuries to our midfield and defense last season, he still managed to get us top 4 so let just be patient and see how the new season goes
lmaoo some people.
@karthik "^ BS man, why are you so negative? He didn't continue when it didn't work out, did he?"

he played the 3-5-2 formation for more than 15 games.rooney played centrally about 10 games or more.di maria played as striker more than 5 games.he only stopped all these cause the fans,pundits and media started questioning and bitching about his method.and they were right,we started playing better when LVG stoppe all these.

plus,he started playing herrera and mata also after the fans started bitching.turns out herrera was our best cm(with carrick) last season
so,how many failure does it takes until LVG realise its a failure??
lol i think you guys are taking this a bit too seriously. there's no need to panic but there are legitimate concerns in the squad if we want to challenge for the title. TW is not over yet so just relax. there's no way we sell ADM, Nani, RvP, and rid of falcao and only bring in depay and hernandez. i think we'll get some reinforcements.
