Yes Pep, we could only afford DiMaria and Falcao
yeah we defintely couldnt afford their best players like kroos who went for an astounding 24 million. not sure what his angle is but no one's going to believe their asking price for players is higher than 60 million we paid for di maria.

Quite desperate from guardiola there lmao then again the media do take things out of context. Still think he's annoying.
guardiola is one of the most annoying and disgusting coaches there is.... very very pretentious... the absolute opposite of the kinds of ronaldo, mourinho and zlatan who speak their minds freely and dont wear any mask... he cares about his image and reputation more than anything else, always carefully craft his words (but not on this occasion), try so hard to appear smart, doesnt want to coach difficult clubs, go for easy club (bayern), etc.... only knows about tiki taka and nothing else... he got lucky inheriting an exceptional generation of players in barcelona that eased his job so much....

and regarding the article,

falcao >>>>>> muller
di maria >>>>>>>> robben
herrera in 3 years >>>>>>>> schweinsteiger in 3 years


pep was drunk, he knew he was drunk
+2
I agree that Pep is annoying and speaks sh*t most of the times...But lets be honest

Muller >> Falcao and Robben >> Di Maria...atleast at this point in time.

Even LVG would agree especially about Robben...Yes he dives at time, but probably him and Ribery are at another level right now.

Muller - No comments on this guy...you all know how good he is for country and club
He said "They don't have money" and the next line he says "I saw they spent a lot of money". To me that's a translation issue, or journalists cherry-picking quotes to make a story. He probably meant something like "they didn't want to spend money on our players".

@Theatre Guardiola "inherited an exceptional generation" and that's why he succeeded -- that's a joke of an argument. He sold half his inheritance. But more importantly, if Barca did not play the exact system he did, we would not have been nearly as successful (Busquets, innovative pressing, innovative off-the-ball movement). There were tactical innovations all over the park. But more than anything else he knew how to get the best out of these players. If you don't believe me, watch Luis Enrique at work this year. When three new youth players become pedigree world-class by the end of the year BECAUSE Luis Enrique knew how to use them, are you going to again say that he was lucky to have a good batch?
@Bazinga I think Muller and Falcao just can't be compared, they are such different players. Muller and Rooney could I guess, and in that comparison I would choose Muller.

But Robben > Di Maria? Esp for United? No way dude... since last year, Di Maria as a mid is just something else.
+1
Yes for the others, but right now, I wouldn't say Di Maria is better than Robben. Robben is at his peak and is an absolute beast. Did you watch the World Cup? Was the best player there for sure.

That being said, Di Maria is obviously exceptional and close to as good, and given their age, Di Maria will become better in the near future whereas Robben has likely peaked and will probably start his slow decline. Both are great. I wouldn't necessarily say one is better than the other but if one had to be picked, right now, Robben is a little more deadly.

@tanmay

i dont understand your argument at all...
know how to use/ utilize them?

would you say if xavi, iniesta, etc. were poor passers, pep would have changed his tactic and abandoned tiki taka?

nahh.... regardless the players he coaches, he'll always use that same tiki taka technique, he carried that to bayern and got crashed by real madrid... jupp or klopp are a much better coach than him...

put it simply, ask him to coach fast attacking football teams like dortmund or netherlands, i bet he wont go anywhere....

You make this really easy. I can flip your argument - would Mourinho be able to play tiki taka or make his team good in possession? We know from experience that this is difficult for him - both Chelsea and Madrid had a lot of trouble when teams decided to sit back. And at Chelsea, Mourinho seems to have solved this by buying the players who suited him (Costa is apparent, but even Cesc was bought for his directness from Arsenal days). His response to his problems is always more directness (Costa).

But none of this means Mourinho isn't a great manager. Similarly Guardiola specializes and I admit we have yet to see if he is versatile. But he's the best at what he does, and that's why he is considered one of the best.

And by the way, if you gave him Dortmund or Netherlands, the teams will do very well. Gotze's performance for example, hasn't fallen under Guardiola, and neither has Robben's. The only difference is they will just be adapted to his system. And every manager does that. It's happening at your club right now.

Anderson is quite a funny character..
+2
still love the guy
he is.... players love him so much, he brightens up the dressing room... that's why although he's s**t on the pitch no one really wants him to leave....

i think we can keep him... he can be the mascot of united.... (every great club perhaps has one or two flop, we are lucky to get a funny flop)
+1
Speaking of mascots, anyone catch the Nissin noodles guy waving his arms in the background. Hilarious. One of Woodward's many acquisitions: http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Features/2014/Sep/video-nissin-organise-for-players-to-meet-Samurai-freestyler.aspx

Louis van Gaal's players were spotted at Neighborhood restaurant last nighthttp://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/manchester-united-stars-hit-town-4273843#

**beware of Anderson. .rofl

Haha, Anderson looks like a club bouncer, did he gain weight again ?
i think so...his dress is awful tho..
judging from rooney's shirt, i can confidently say that this was after the dinner with the latin gangs (rojo, herrera, mata, etc.)

glad that we have so many team bonding activities i believe rooney was one of the organizers...
I can confidently say that this has become a forum of stay-at-home (g)moms and would-like-to-be wags :D jeeeezzzzz

anders lindegaards wife... sheeeesh
as promised, periera vs sunderland u21

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9lCPP584M4&list=UUJRB_jLtQ5vfc2KCcKLG_iA

some great service from both fullbacks, and periera scored a nice goal.

and bonus:

GG this is why bringing Ronaldo back is a bad idea. Youth with immense potential like Pereira would never get enough game time to step up to the next gear.
That touch by Herrera .. brilliant. Another one from that match by him was lovely too - I think it was a flick on to Blind on the volley.

Periera looks class, though. I was delighted to see him on the bench on Sunday. Such a shame we didn't get our act together for the League Cup match against MK Dons. It would have been great to see some of the young lads have a go - something I was looking forward to this year.

We might rotate a bit in the FA Cup, but I really want to see us put together a run this year. It's our chance to have a real go, considering we've only also got the league to focus on.
Agreed, next generation talent is more important. Excited that we have a good talent in cm position. He's only 18 too, already ahead of some of the 19 year olds, he's got real potential this boy.
Our defenders were the main culprits in our mk dons thrashing, on and off the ball, very poor, doubt that'll happen again in the near future.

Also, am I only one surprised pearson not given a chance in the first team?
Pereira is AM Andi not CM
Even in this game he has already started to play deeper.
so SIF, Corrigan on youtube are you?
we were playing diamond with thorpe at the bottom and pereira at the top. so he were deffo not CM. he might drop back to cover in midfield / receive the ball but that is just his role in that formation imo.
i can see ur point of LVG transforming him to a CM but I think he is much better at AM like in this game or last year reserves
We're too stocked in AM, and he can play CM imo. He can be where Herrera played against QPR.
and make the same mistake we did with Ando?
LVG will use Periera when necessary. Atm, he's going to be featuring in FA Cup games and the odd league game. If the AM position is available he can slot in, if not I don't think he'll complain about being a box to box. You never know, he may come good, he's only 18.
don't expect him to feature in the FA cup tho. it's our only real shot of silverware this season and we have a star studded first squad to rotate so I can see LVG going with his best XI for every game in the FA cup this year.
Lol no im not corrigan, i just promised i would post it here as soon as it became available online

Falcao celebrates Mata's goal, bouncing along the touchline
great analysis of our new system:
http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Features/2014/Sep/Tactics-talk-Danny-Higginbotham-analyses-United-full-backs-Rafael-and-Rojo.aspx
i can maybe forgive someone calling him ro-joe but roko? come on man. was this guy calling javier hernandez kavier Hernandez? seriously, it's pronounced like ROHO and it isnt very difficult.

anyways yea good point, rafa was our only width down the right and he did very well. valencia came on and looked clueless unfortunately.
hehe not worse than hamez
Van Haal or Hose Mourinho is not that hard either, but after years, its still the same.
+1
or De Gear
Damn it would have been such a nice assist by Rocko if RVP let the ball go Herrera would have had the easiest finish to make. That's something that will take a few games, that confidence to shout at your team mates when you're positive that you're in a better position. Or maybe he did and RVP just didn't listen? :0 lol
the great James Milner:

"I told Joe Hart that Yaya's wearing an Arsenal shirt. He said Really? But he plays for us? I said Haha the jokes on you, it was Yaya Sanogo."

Surely some competitive friendlies against good teams not committed to CL or EL would have been better no? Valencia, Milan, Lazio etc
"According to The Times, FA chairman Greg Dyke intends to introduce stringent regulations that could cut the number of players from outside the EU by 50%.
They include altering the present rules that stipulate players must have appeared in at least 75% of a nation’s competitive fixtures over two years if they are ranked inside Fifa’s top 75 to the top 50, with the required number of games dropping to 30% for countries ranked inside the top 30.
Several signings in the summer transfer window are unlikely to have been granted work permits had the rules been in place for this season."

Looks like it could be really stringent until I read this: "Players who cost more than £10m would automatically be granted a work permit."

What a joke! So basically prevent smaller clubs widening their scouting network, unearth gems and get bigger. While the big teams can continue to poach and throw money at the rest, now officially their feeder clubs. Summum hypocrisy!!
The F.A are just absolutely clueless.

The country needs real footballing men in leadership not a bunch of corporate know nothing suits who have never set foot on a football pitch in any vicinity.

Chelsea almost tempted Rooney away for £30 million before he was persuaded to sign a £300,000-a-week five-year United contract, but the player was understood to be furious at comments Ferguson made about him. However, having committed his future to United and being entrusted with the captaincy by current manager Louis van Gaal, Rooney marked his 10 years at Old Trafford by mending fences with Ferguson.

“He was vitally important,” said Rooney in an interview broadcast last night by MUTV. “I’m grateful to him for having the faith to bring me in from Everton. I think he’s an incredible person and manager, the way you see his desire for the game. He certainly helped me a lot and helped us all.”

Rooney, who moved from Everton for £25 million as an 18-year-old, added: “At the time, I came into the squad as a young lad and there were a few other young lads. He brought all that together and made us world club champions.

“I’m very grateful for everything he’s done. It was a great feeling. Sir Alex is the best manager there’s been and for him to recognise my talent and want me to join this club was a great honour for me. He drove me over [to Old Trafford], just the two of us in his car. I remember being nervous but he was great and made me feel comfortable.”

Rooney added that he wanted to see out his contract with United.

“I hope so,” he said. “I think the plan is, I’ve just signed new long-term deal at the club and hopefully in five years’ time we’ll be sat down for a 15-year one [TV interview]. I don’t see any reason why not.”

Classic PR from his agent there
+1
but surely no one can deny how much rooney has grown from an emotional young lad to a highly composed captain figure

Ah, the good old "Rooney on 300k" again, been awhile since we heard that.
no one brought up the wages as an issue until you. and he is not even on 300k. falcao is best paid now at 250 or smth so rooney is even lower than that.

the agent felt the need for rooney to come out and make peace with fergie so that the fans can get in behind him. now that he is captain he needs the fan support more than ever. a standing rift between him and SAF would be obviously bad for his image.

I would support him even without this PR stunt because it was a LVG decision to put him as captain but I would never forget how he hold the club ransom TWICE.
