the bookies seem pretty confident we will lose, the odds are more level now than they were 1-2 weeks ago but people seem to think we will lose.. i really don't think that's the case. sanchez is the dangerman and will likely score imo, but i think we are good for a goal as well and it will end 1-1.

szscesny had that wonder save to deny rvp last season otherwise i think we would have won that game. i think their attack has improved but their defense is significantly worse off (same to be said about us) so i think the same scoreline will pan out this weekend.
I hope your prediction is true 1-1 or 2-2 will be good result for all.
Arsenal typically don't lose against other big teams at home (the past few seasons) but they also don't win many of the games either. Very good chance of a draw.

(But if any team were to sneak a win, i would say it's Utd with the quality of players in attack)
We're gonna rip that cute little ass to pieces on some Bill Cosby s**t. I hope Mata and Herrera and Di Maria are all starting. 3-1 United :D
dont lose against other big teams at home? since 08, they have only managed to beat us once and only avoided defeat 2 times at home. the emirates have been our second home for sometime now.

So Khedira's contract is coming to an end soon and his future is still uncertain. If you guys could pick between Strootman or Khedira, which one would you go for?
i think having him and fellaini is redundant. we'd have to pick one or the other. khedira is a fantastic B2B when fit and in form, any team would find him useful.
If things were to stay the way they currently are, he'd leave on a free, no?

I'm going to be honest here, I just don't want Khedira to join Arsenal lol. I think with a player like him they will instantly get much, much better.
He would be better than anything we have at the moment.
no i agree, khedira is a very good player, better than fellaini. i'm just saying if we get him, we have to ask ourselves if having fellaini makes sense. we already have herrera riding the bench at the moment, 3 B2B midfielders may be overkill now that rooney is being used as a CM.

but maybe thats a problem for the manager, and we should just go for him anyways. his injury record would tell you there would be plenty chances for rotation. and if he is coming without a TF then it could be low risk on our part and a wise move.
Not sure if it is accurate to say that Herrera has been riding the bench, as though he's fit but not been used.. He's simply not been fit. Should be close to match fit now though. He could even be one of the players 'rushed back' that LVG alluded to yesterday, becausw we're too short to give him another full week training with the team before selection.

That said, I don't see Felli as a starting CM. He's a squad player, useful against more physical opposition. His role is limited, but specific or particular enough that he wouldn't necessarily become redundant. I'd personally take Strootman over Khedira, who is likely to go to Bayern anyway. Don't see why we couldn't accomodate another B2B. I like Blind as a holding midfielder, we could then play a number of variations in front of him.
no i don't think it's a question of fitness, he's clearly been dropped to the bench. he isn't injured and has been in training for well over a month now, since the last international break. he started vs CP and hasnt played since.
+2
he has been injured. he fractured a rib in the west ham game. was supposed to be out for a month but we played him the next week against. he had to wear protective gear to start that game. he was subbed at halftime. and has since been on the bench for the last 3 games because he is still recovering.

No one in their right mind would start fellaini over Herrera or even consider not signing Khedira because we have Fellaini. 2 1/2 good performances and we dont need Khedira?
+2
this^

Herrera has clearly been carrying an injury. He's been training, but at what level? You can still train in certain ways with a fractured rib.. But LVG has said over and over that to get into the squad you have to be fit, at a certain level of stamina, etc. Herrera started against WB and was pulled at the half, because the corset he was wearing wasn't enough to stop the discomfort.

I expect we'll possibly see him this weekend, if not the next. But fractured ribs can take quite a few weeks to completely heal.

**
Edit
Ander Herrera @AnderHerrera

On our way to London // de camino a Londres ⚽️ http://instagram.com/p/vqpi0uPA4J/
i already know about the fractured rib.

after the West brom game LVG said herrera was not injured, he was taken off because he wanted someone with a different quality. he said he'd already told fellaini he was going to be subbed on midway through the first half but made hi

he's been on the bench since and has not missed any training session and hasn't been listed as injured since CP.

It's not fitness, he's just been dropped. you don't fully train and you certainly don't make the bench for a month while carrying an injury, that doesnt make any sense. you risk aggrevating the injury if he's still injured.

if you've ever sustained a cracked rib or collar bone you know you can barely breathe without intense pain let alone run or play a contact sport. our medical staff isnt stupid, he wouldnt be involved if he was still suffering from the rib injury.

New video for CR7. Pretty much has everything. I'd have liked to have heading clearances he makes in the corners in there too.

It is amazing! Thanks for sharing :)
Hope its not six months for Blind. Btw Herrera should get a chance on Saturday.
why does it have to befall on one of our most important, consistent and neat players....
"First he needs to rest for 10 days, then we will have a better idea," said United boss Louis van Gaal.
United had initially tweeted that the Dutch midfielder, 24, would be sidelined for six months.
"I can't say it will be six to eight weeks," added Van Gaal. "I can't even say it will be 10 to 12 weeks. But it is definitely not six months."

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/30128792
Basically thats one signing gone and unable to help us the rest of the season get into the top 4. Herrera is a must start now. No excuses.

Falcao:

"There are a lot of stories circulating that are pure speculation"

"It detracts from the credibility of the media that there is so much speculation and so many falsehoods."

"I feel well and I hope to come back to the pitch soon"

"It is disappointing that I can't play, but I have to be calm and recover because that is important to help the team when I return to the games."

Last time Falcao twitted "One fool speculates. A few others lacking objectivity respond and millions believe lies. It is disastrous what a few fools can do." He was annoyed at the media when they took picture of him icing his leg and reported he still have knee problems.

LVG purposely mentioned its as a "new injury" to differentiate its from his knee.

I kinda like Falcao's character and his love for football. Hope he gets rid of the injuries and start producing result for us :D

I love to hate United and I know you guys love to hate liverpool, but that hate comes from love for the beautiful game. Hope you guys have more luck and avoid further injuries and have a good season.

i dont love to hate liverpool, i dont even hate them, i just have a pity on them
In my opinion, this is the best post by a Liverpool fan in the history of Footytube.

Thank you my friend. Right back at you!
I hope Sturridge gets better soon as well. He's been beyond unlucky this season!

I don't know if anyone would agree with me on this, but I think selling Welbeck was a terrible decision IMO. The lad is a great player, with a good right foot, and his strength has improved a lot. But still I think it was a mistake to sell him.
I Still don't think it a mistake selling him. He never show he capable of scoring, he great for his workrate when you need protection in the wings, but he show he's too impatient and want to start as a forward where we all know there are more better players (RVP, Rooney and even Wilson are all better goals scorer than him) in that position than him which is why he chose to leave and United respect his decision and let him
I would have preferred to see him stay but i dont think he was happy being 3rd or 4th choice at Utd. He wanted a move away. I think we granted his wish and let him leave. He will definitely improve now that he is playing regularly but I dont think he will be a striker that can win you the league.
I keep telling pple, just bcos he is good for arsenal does not mean he would have been good for us, we saw this lad play for manutd many times and he was average at best and we have better strikers so i dont get all the freakin out from some manutd fans about manutd regretting selling an average player.... i dont get it

Even if he does score against manutd does not mean a thing, Vardy a championship player scored against us, Mk dons' players scored against us so scoring a goal against us does not mean NOTHING but you know the media will blow it out of proportion, and the pple saying selling welbeck to get falcao is a mistake are having a laugh.

falcao is one of the deadliest strikers of the ball in the world and yet we compare him to an average overhyped English player that never did anything for us but run around.... just because he's injured..... smh

Funny how nobody ever talked about welbeck when he was still playing here but he's now everyone's golden boy. Anything but manutd, even our tea lady is s**t but once she leaves, she becomes the best tea lady ever.
Our Starting Striker HAS to be a Great Goalscorer. Welbeck isn't a Great Goalscorer and he wasn't happy with being a back up so he left.

With Welbeck leaving though, it gave Wilson a spot in the first team who has the potential to become a Great Goalscorer IMO.
I dont think we gave him enough chance in his favorite position. Agree with Yaldho in here definitely he will be 3/4 choice striker in Arsenal he is the first choice so to him this is a big step forward.
What would he provide that the players we have now, even with injuries can't provide ? Our striker options are RVP, Rooney and Wilson. On the wings we have Januzaj and di Maria. What can he do that the others can't do? Besides being a depth player he wouldn't mean much. As much as I loved Welbeck and was gutted by his move. I feel no regrets. We just have to move on. We shouldn't of loaned Nani if anything, even though inconsistent he still could of provided us with something.
"Van Gaal says Angel Di Maria and @D_DeGea are fit for #mufc's game at Arsenal."

I was never really worried about ADM but Big Dave being back would be a massive boost! Please oh please let this be true!
New injury for Falcao. 2 weeks out
Well thats great! surely now we won't want to make this a permanent deal. We don't need another expensive injury prone signing.
Falcao isn't injured again. According to LVG, players have to train one to two weeks with squad to regain stamina/fitness before selection. One of the tabloids started the rumour. Falcao has since rubbished the story..he had a calf injury which was reported a few weeks ago, but is on his way back into the squad (starts full training on Sunday)probably for next weekend.
+3
Ty Stret.

People need to learn the difference between a player being injured and not up to match fitness, its important for Van Gaal that his players are at the right level before being put back in the team.

Naturally he is taking his time with Falcao.
Falcao should be on the bench then, he started training when international break started. Same with Rafa but I know players who didn't get called up typically get some time off.
As I said, he starts full training with the team on Sunday. LVG requires at least a week of training with the team prior to squad selection, which makes sense. Doubt he'll be involved against Arsenal. A good chance for next weekend.
Falcao is half fit at the moment and I really don't see him on the bench either against Arsenal. Like Stret said, he's only starting full team training on Sunday, so most likely he will play next weekend instead.

I really like Falcao. He's a great player who's went through a lot to be where he is today, and has been really unlucky with his injuries. But as much as I love the guy, it's so tough staying patient while he misses game after game. He's missed some really important games already... I was praying he'd be fit for Chelsea. He wasn't. I thought surely he'd be fit for City, nope. Arsenal for sure then? Surely he'll be at least on the bench? Nopeeee.

Come on El Tigre, please for the love of God, stop getting injured. I really miss Chicha and Welbeck.
Forget the Falcao fee. Let's use it to pay someone to lift the injury curse. That might be more useful.

Whens this guy Falcao coming back, seriously? Van Gaal didn't address all the injuries. theres mixed news on el tigre, first he is fit then the Colombian doc says no blah blah..
