so who is this Felipe Anderson and why is he worth €40m? Im not saying the rumour is true, just wondering if anybody have insight on him. Is he actually that good? The last Brazilian Anderson didnt turn out so well. We cant afford to pay for chips and burgers anymore.
He has pace, can play wide on both sides and as cam, scores goals and can score from outside the box..also very decent dribbler. He is only 22 as well so lots of upside.

But you really can't be too sure with serie a pace abuser wingers. Caudrado massively flopped and salah is killing it there despite not doing much here. He wouldn't be worth 40 million euro to us though and imo it is just paper talk.
I'm sure Mou had his reasons, but were Salah and Cuadrado ever really given a chance to succeed at the Bridge though?

I mean Salah joined and made a handful of features,then got completely frozen out by Mou, while Cuadrado was signed in Jan and didn't even get game time until the final month of last season.

F. Anderson's talent is there for all to see. 40M may very well be a gamble, but someone like LVG can polish him and make him consistent and a through would beater.
Just as a reminder of how nuts Fergie was, this was our lineup the last time we faced Wolfsburg (who were the German Champions at the time).
We were without half our team due to injuries, and we won this away game 3-1. With Owen scoring a hat-trick.

Lol evra the only defender in the side... And we all know how much he likes to defend Lol.
lol that is a hell of a team

SAF was the difference, and scholes
+1
Sometimes I look at some of our lineups under Fergie and I really wonder how the hell we were winning so much.
I still remember the game vs Arsenal as well where our midfield was made up of Rafael - O'Shea - Gibson - Fabio and we won.
Or how we beat Schalke in the semis with Gibson, Anderson x 2 and Valencia scoring. The man really was a genius and knew how to get the best of our players.

It makes me wonder where we'd be right now if instead of penny pinching in his last years, we gave Fergie the same kind of financial freedom we're currently giving LvG. We missed out on quite a few players cause we weren't willing to pay the extra few millions. Oh well.
+3
Ah Fergie you mad bastard.

It's not like it worked out ALL the time. I remember a game against Blackburn around Christmas when we were a bit too naive, lost the game, then lost to City on GD.

But still, it worked out more often than not lol.
NANI was the difference. Fergie showing zero respect to Wolfsburg lol
+2
@Badge Fergie was a genius, that simple.

+1
that is one of the main reasons why he is considered by majority best manager of all times.

FLETCHER as CB. Still won
+1
Haha StandardCritic. Not considered by majority as greatest. He IS the greatest mgr by far. I don't see why anyone else would even come close.

I think the big difference in SAF's teams that I saw and the current LvG team is that SAF's team commanded fear, no matter what the team looked like. The gameplay was more direct. Wingers could score as well as cross (eg. Nani). The team would attack and lay siege like they were possessed by SAF.

Of course, early days for LvG but personally I feel United need someone who values flair and speed more. Just my opinion. LvG is not the guy to reinstate United to its true glory, maybe he is just the guy who undoes the Moyes mayhem and lays the foundation for a more dynamic mgr.
things to consider for the Swansea game ..

- Gomis and Ayew are very good in the air + their fullbacks are attack-minded and full of crosses + Montero's crosses are lethal + Blind isn't that commanding in the air = we have to reduce Swansea's aerial supply and crosses as possible ..high pressing the fullbacks ,tracking back with them as tight as possible if they broke through by Memphis and Mata ,Rooney should be exploiting the space behind the attacking fullback to make him think twice before venturing forward ,our fullback defending on the opposite side of the cross should be as close as possible to his CB especially Shaw since Ayew is good in the air and in exploiting that space between the FB and the CB

- handle Montero ..he's agile ,quick ,confident can cut inside or go to the byline no problems but he's no Messi ..you defend against him in numbers ..don't ever leave Darmian one on one against him ..that's why Herrera should start ..him and Mata should track back with Montero blocking the cut inside option for him with Darmian focusing only on blocking the byline option ..

- Sigurdsen and Shelvey can shoot from outside the box and they will be fancying a go at Romero ..Schweini and Schneiderlin should keep them away from the danger areas and block them as quick as possible ..and i can see LVG playing man marking against them since they're Swansea's main play-makers

- Swansea like to keep the ball and build from the back ..let them do that and break them on the counters ..they are very vulnerable defending against counterattacks ..i saw some of the Sunderland game and every Sunderland's counter was almost a goalscoring opportunity


if i missed something please let me know your input ..and what you like to see in the Swansea game ..
I think this will be our most testing fixture yet. It will be very interesting to see if our impressive defensive display continues, and if we can build from that platform and attack against an in-form and well-drilled Swansea side.
+3
Also better watch out for Eder the Portuguese striker, very strong and quick and also tall player. A big threat going forward and had a great season with Braga last season. But I'm sure Mike will handle whim well ;)
him*
we have played against eder before when we played against bragga i think in CL group stages a few years back under fergie. i think it was the first season with RvP.
+1
yeah SIF we dud and he ripped us a new one. Still remember how he made Carrick look a fool in that fixture, but tbf to Carrick he was played as a CB that game if I recall
+1
ripped us a new one..? their captain did score two goals at OT. eder got the better of carrick once or twice, but that makeshift defense did well enough to contain him. he's decent but hardly a top player.
+1
No one said he was a top player, nor did anyone say he'll cause us problems now. He did cause us a ton of problems and our back line did struggle to contain him 3 years ago, just saying.
+1
we ran all over bragga* after their first two goals. he beat carrick, who is not a CB, once or twice early on then disappeared the rest of the match.

did i say you or anyone else said he's a top player? my point is he's not such a threat, he's not even getting minutes at the moment for swansea.
+2
will be very surprised and pissed if Herrera didn't start the Swansea game
Depends how LVG sees us best setting up. Herrera is most effective in a midfield three, where he can make attacking runs without worrying about what space might be behind him. I can see us setting up with either Basti-Schneid or Carrick as CDMs and Herrera as CAM. Will be interesting.
+1
against Swansea ..

----------------------Romero---------------------

Darmian---------Smalling-------Blind----------Shaw

------------------Schweini------------------------

-----------------------------Schneiderlin---------

------------------Herrera-------------------------

Mata----------------------------------------Memphis

----------------------Rooney-----------------------
I love it. But aint gonna happen.
+3
Poor Herrera, really I hope he starts he deserves his chance
januzaj definitely shouldn't be starting. i have a feeling we will see fellaini up top with rooney behind.
We were a much better side against Brugge once Januzaj was off. He's done nothing to justify his position. Time for Pereirra to be given a chance to impress
Maybe City will reconsider buying De Bruyne to avoid weakening Wolfsburg :)
+2
We really should buy KdB then :P
+2
Actually really hope they will bbuy him.. and THE LORD
We are *&^%ing screwed!

the toughest group is the Man City group ..
Interesting to see how they will cope this year having failing to qualify fr last 16 with their previous groups..maybe they are just unlucky.
WOW WE GOT THE LAYUP GROUP
nice draw for man utd memphis goes back to psv to face his former team.
+1
YUP
+1
But still we cannot underestimate our group. Its gonna be tough since every team is hungry for qualifying round.
the group isn't easy ..
As long as they don't park the bus, it makes our game much easier. We are traditionally good at beating German teams, so Wolf should not be a problem. CSKA we only fear the away game, should be fine back at OT. PSV have some good young players but lack experience.

Not saying it will be a stroll, but they are not really tough opponents comparing to other possible teams out there.
far from easy but no heavyweights, which is positive for us.
they're going to get rolled on
"we are traditionally good at beating german teams"

most irrelevant reason ever to be confident of anything. lol.

why? it's pretty common to use past experience as a predictor of future events.

Man.United(ENG)
CSKA Moskva(RUS)
Wolfsburg(GER)
Memphis coming back to his old club, really looking forward to the PSV vs United games and see how he will react when he comes back to the Phillips Stadion
