Please win tomorrow!

DDG made an amazing save against Rafael's strike during training. I think Falcao and ADM lack of confidence is because they can't even get one past DDG in training. DDG isn't helping our strikers lol, our strikers should practice shooting against Lindegaard instead.
+3
Here we go:

DG

Valencia---Smalling---McNair---Shaw

Fellaini

Herrera---Mata

ADM---Rooney---Young
+2
GOOD, big day for Young McNair. I think the back 4 will definitely be something like that, and CM will be Fellaini and Herrera side-to-side. The problem is the mix at the offensive end.

Option 1. The magic Juan
Mata
ADM Rooney Young

Option 2. Chance for Angel
ADM
Mata Rooney Young

Option 3. Chance for Youth
Pereira/Januzaj
Mata Rooney Young

Option 4. Chance for Falcao
Rooney
Mata Falcao Young

LVG - "Others can take profit of the moment" Benchmen, you hear? Time to show you're not worth sitting on the bench.
bad.

fellaini's tactical role is to relieve the pressure when teams press our defense and cdm. playing him close to the defense negates his tactical advantage.

besides, he's probably the worst passer in the front 6. your cdm needs to be able to pass the ball in this system.

rooney will play cdm most likely, for better or worse.

in all likelihood falcao will start as striker and adm will be on the bench
Im really worried about playing Shaw. Last time he came back from injury early, he walked off in 1st half
Lvg said he have been training for a long time. So it should be different from last time, if he still gets injured... there must be something wrong with him
if he has to be taken off injured again we should just cut our losses with him in the summer.
I'd like to see Herrera give it a go at Carrick's spot. He's good at reading plays and isn't afraid of getting stuck in a tackle. Plus he's constantly moving giving an outlet to the back four and can make great turns to connect the midfield and defense. Plus he's got the ability to pick out a pass too.
^ We'd need Herrera's attacking flair further up the pitch helping out either wing plays. It should be Fellaini or Rooney, man we need a Carrick replacement in the summer, and backup fullbacks if LVG doesn't trust Rafael along with Shaw being injured all the time.
i hope NONE of our players come off injured before half time,its such a waste of time and substitutes when that happens. I'd rather have rojo or jones playing in cb then mccnair in lb
if you wanted to know why they are all injured, here you go.

Blind's injury is mainly due to kompany
Kompany has completely lost his bearings recently. If you've seen the recent Belgium game you will know.
things dont look well but hey, the team is on such a high spirit. I believe we still can beat them if players follow LVG instructions.
Yeah it's clear to see Kompany has lost his bearings but that doesn't justify him wanting to hack down Blind with a crunching tackle when he didn't even need to make the tackle. Disgusting behavior
+1
But his juggling skills are impeccable! :P
His "i'm an alien" impersonation is impeccable too
+2
lmao
Kompany's career going downhill ever slowly.
If one of Jones or Rojo wasn't injured, I'd almost expect us to go with 3 at the back- take advantage of Jose's probable defensive-minded tactics, play to contain Hazard, and play for the draw.

As it were, we don't have enough defenders to play 3 at the back lol. Is RvP fit? If so, maybe we'll see Rooney drop into midfield with Fellaini and Herrera?

This will be extremely interesting to see how both teams line up tomorrow. I'd be content with a point at this stage.
If Rooney drops to midfield, Falcao might get a start finally. Or Mata can play more centrally with Di Maria playing in the flanks.

Btw Di Maria is only 3 assists short of David Beckham's record of most assists in a season. Some bad season huh.
I will not take any risks with players coming back from injury e.g. Shaw and RVP. Here is my lineup:

_____________De Gea___________
Valencia__Smalling__McNair__Young
____________Fellaini__________
Mata_____Herrera___Di Maria____Januzaj
_____________Rooney_____________

This was hard as I'd hate to move Young and Fellaini out of their best positions when they're so in form. But they're more than capable of filling in these roles, Young was a great LB in pre season, and Fellaini is a tank. Di Maria will have to put on his workhorse boots like he did at Madrid. All this to ensure that Rooney stays up front lol. Worth? Or do we get our money's worth and take a gamble on Falcao up front? Carrick is a big miss though, don't know if we can play the same without him
Hearing about Carrick, Rojo, Blind and Jones injured...all i can picture is Jones barging into them in training, in full swing, with one of his game faces on and injuring himself and the other guys in the process.
Maybe there was some incident that happened at night which is why they want to put in the lights at Carrington... Like Jones barging into them going all out.
Jones is like a suicide bomber, even though it was Smalling who dressed as one.
+5
maybe fellani in carrick's position since his original position was that of a defensive midfielder anyway. ADM behind rooney? Shaw at LB and mcnair at cb? This is really bad news. hoping for some kind of miracle between now and the game

Maybe valencia can be moved into the mid with herrera with rafeal back at rb.

last time we met them we played with rafael, smalling, rojo and shaw
^ I think that was Fellaini's role against Chelsea earlier this season, he had no problem dealing with Fab and Matic
OH s**t are you f*****g kidding me?! Carrick is bad enough, now we lose our good CBs and have to settle for Evans or inexperienced McNair against Chelsea?? DAMMIT! I wanted to see how our new perfect starting XI fares against the best in the league as well... Question is, do we move Young to LB and play Di Maria in his place, or gamble on Shaw who's been out for ages.
Lucky for us Evans is suspended. We really don't have squad depth this season
+2
Yeah, Johny 'most senior defender' Evans is luckily suspended. I'd rather have McNair playing there, even Wootton lol
wootten is a strange fella.. came from liverpool to united.. then goes to leeds.. not sure what he's playing at.
+2
This is going to destroy the balance and fluidity we had in our team
Well, look on the bright sight Evans not starting :P
+1
I know the focus for a lot of people is CB or even a goalscoring winger but its absolutely imperative that we sign a Carrick replacement this summer.

Carrick is picking up too many injuries, we really need someone else who can operate in his role, hes been on the injury table so much these last two seasons and he's no spring chicken neither.

Ofc I don't want Carrick out the team but its vital that we pick up another option who can bring some of what he brings to the table.
Who can bring what Carrick brings though?
No one, but they can bring something else. Whether its Carvalho, Kondogbia, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, they're all different players and they won't be direct replacement for Carrick.
carvalho -- overrated given his price
kondogbia -- good player with potential
wanyama -- utd fan, good player with potential
schneiderlin -- quality player

our squad balance is really screwed up. maybe we should try and stick with rooney uptop and sell 2 strikers and get a young up and coming striker that would be more experienced than wilson but wouldnt mind being understudy to rooney? he is best used uptop, we can just buy a cm like gundogan to compete with herrera and fellaini, and of course buy a cdm to compete with and fill in for carrick.
Schneirderlin is the closest and possibly cheapest replacement for Carrick. Been saying this for years, can't have a 33 year old player be THE most important player in the squad.
among the list, i like Kondogbia best. Schneidelin is also a good choice since he's already performing in PL
I like Kondogbia too, and I can't forget the day he singlehanded our midfield in a friendly... it was a nightmare playing against him
TBH Kondogbia is been average since leaving sevila , Monaco payed 20M for him , he is young , so I'm sure Monaco will want to recover what they have invested .
Camacho!
Oh hell no!!! Carrick, blind, jones and rojo are injured and wont be able to play against chelsea. All are very vital to our form. And with evan still in suspension we are officially screwed!!! So what do you guys think should be our line up against chelsea?

------------------DDG----------------
Valencia-mcnair-smalling-shaw
----------------herrera---------------
Di maria-mata----afroman-young
-----------------rooney---------------

I think this is our best line up because of the injury!
DG
AV - Smalling - McNair - Shaw
Rooney
Herrera - Afro
Mata - Falcao - Young
I think the team will be too open with Herrera as holding mid.

Normally Blind would slot in there with Carrick out but he's out as well, I reckon we should just kill the game and pack the midfield and play without a dedicated striker, Rooney will probably have to drop in there unfortunately.
Unfit shaw? McNair? That defense is mcfucked.
My thinking too SiF.

We should just park the bus and take a draw. Chelsea are not playing well and Costa is out which is a plus, no way can we go to Stamford Bridge tomorrow and put a functioning side out.
WTF happened to Jones and Blind??? I swear it looks like every month Jones picks out an in form team mate and injures him.... and himself
FFS. This does my weekend now :/
No way we can go into the game expecting a win after these injuries. And without Carrick i'm scared the Chelsea midfield will run circles around ours, and our away form hasn't been the greatest either.
And what happened to Blind? We have terrible luck with injuries, we need to permanently get rid of these crocks. With Champions League games next season, we will probably end up with 12 players fit for an important game.
If LVG manages another victory this time, I'll call him King Louis.

Its time for a gamble, put Pereira on this time and move Fellaini to the back along side Herrera. Traditionally, we get rewarded for making big decisions in big games :D

DDG
Valencia - Smalling - McNair - Shaw
Herrera - Groot
Mata - Pereira - Young
Rooney

Strangely though, usually when we have this many players out, I'm usually pessimistic about it. But this time around, I'm still kinda confident in getting 3 points.
I think we'll do well no matter what team LvG puts out. I feel like a draw is the most realistic option but a win shouldn't be out of reach despite the setback
Have to trust LVG there. According to Gary and Carragher's analysis, we defeated Spurs, Liverpool and City by tactics and discipline, that means as long as the players follow the plan, it doesn't matter who we put on the field.
Against Spurs pool and city we had players who could be disciplined and follow the game plan, with Carrick gone our defence is back to square one. More or less the same defence which shipped 5 against Leicester City.
It's okay. At least u have something to say if u guys lose.
Luckily we still have Smalling, the analysis in MNF shows that he was the one giving out instructions, keeping the defense and offside line aligned. McNair is a smart kid, I'm sure he can manage to do his assigned job. But Carrick is there to fill up the holes, recycling possession and initiate attacks, that's the biggest blow.

Hey Soton, can we borrow Schneiderlin? :D
