"And it makes me happy that he played and it will make me even happier if he can score.”- Juan Mata on Radamel Falcao


Yes Mata,make it happen,assist bomb him :P
+1
Am I wrong to say LVG has found they way to use Mata?
Its great to have Mata and Herrera, both are so cheerful, they always say nice things about others and cheer the fans and players up. Falcao must be frustrated about himself, he need supports from his mates like this to gain confidence.

The current system suits him quite well, but we're still yet to see the best of him, can't wait to see his best.
Now that reminds me that time against Hull where Mata could have scored but laid it on a plate for Falcao.

His finish was too tame it was cleared off the line, unlucky tigre.
@karthik

what was the context of the statement? why did he say that?

i think everyone in the team is rooting for falcao to score, that's the reason mata passed the ball to him against hull...

right now i just hope he will regain 100% fitness and ready to play full 90 mins because basically he already has the support from everyone...
idk maybe Mata was asked about Falcao's return back to the team
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/dec/17/radamel-falcao-uncertain-manchester-united-future
How can he make that big of a difference with 15 mins every game? dont get me wrong Ive followed falcao and his finishing is off for sure but his striker's instinct is there and no one in the world (IMO) understands the box and how to move around it better than him. but if you saw him in atletico he needed time to roughen up the defense abit and know where the defender likes to go and when the defender will tackle or push. I think you guys have a top striker and hope he finds his footing but I belive as soon as he starts scoring he wont stop...and LVG has some tough decisions to make.
Lovren (2013-14/ 2014-15)

priceless

He was one of the best defenders in the league last season.I can't quiet believe how bad he has turned out to be this season.

Well,I hope this form of his continues and Liverpool crumbles even more after all the slack they gave us last season.Time for payback LOL
You know what they say "payback's a bitch!" Lol.
Liverpool just beat a championship team in the League Cup, and this comment pops up on their page:

"Lallana is probably one of the most gifted technicians I have ever seen on the ball".

Lol. Just Lol.
+10
It's their year
+2
They will win the treble
+1
To be honest i don't think liverpool fans watch any other club but liverpool, which is why they can make such a daft statement and why they think gerrard is not only greatest english player but also the greatest lol midfielder who ever lived lmao.
Their level of ignorance is one that i truly hate.
+2
Well I think he is right, Lallana is probably one of the most gifted technicians who has played for Liverpool.
+2
lallana deserves ballon d'or
+1
Do you guys remember the boy who couldn't finish 3 1one1 vs de Gea and know Redknapp thinks he can play upfront because he scored 2 against a championship side

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11669/9610725/capital-one-cup-raheem-sterling-is-good-enough-to-play-up-front-says-jamie-redknapp
Well he is still 20 years old, people tend to forget that. So I think with a little bit of hard work he can improve his finishing.

You can always forgive someone for missing chances, but he was full of running and he got into some great areas. Give him time and he will prosper.
Our topscorers this season so far:

Van Persie 7 goals 15 games
Rooney 6 goals 12 games
Mata 5 goals 13 games

Not impressive at all! I would have liked to see one of our strikers in double figures. If these 3 players can go on a scoring run and if Falcao can start bagging in a few we'll keep our winning streak alive.
Good thing you have Falcao on loan i don't see United signing him permanently with that price tag and performance
Yes, Half of the season almost finished and i cant this Falcao is getting a permanent deal
Yes unfortunately I can't see it becoming permanent with his injuries unless if he scores 20+ goals and remains fit till the end of the season
the thing is all these 3 players are improving week by week, especially rvp... if they can keep the momentum, it's only a matter of time until 3 the of them score double digits
Saw down below you guys were talking about R9 and comparing him to CR7 etc..He was better than Cr for sure, 100%. Pure footballer. Lethal when he had the ball at his feet. CR7 tries too hard at times, top athlete but not on R9 level, never. Messi is better footballer than CR as well but i have to say as R9 would have made my line up before messi.
+3
Let's just appreciate the fact that we got to see these greats play in our era, over the likes of Andy Carroll and Mario Balotelli. It still hurts me a bit, that Cristiano Ronaldo left to Real Madrid - he was part of something special here at Man Utd.
+1
Harry Kane is talented. Probably the most talented english striker since Rooney.
3 assist for Eriksen
+1
Waayyy too early to jump to such a conclusion about Kane. The same way that Lallana was the next soon-to-be-greatest English technician. This ALWAYS happens here. Wait until he performs consistently for at least 2 years..then judge whether he is "probably the most talented english striker since Rooney", which is a huge statement!
+5
I hope you know what mistake Lallana made and why he is struggling right now??..But yes its too early to conclude especially considering he is english player.
"Probably" is the keyword.
who is his competition since rooney?

but i agree, he is quality,, but i dont think he will be world class
"Since Rooney" means his competition is made up of the likes of Carroll, an injured Sturridge, Welbeck etc.
Not exactly a big honor.
+3
i don't think Kane is particularly talented or technical. he's just a big, strong lad and has the confidence and concentration to prosper.
Wilson is probably the most talented english striker since Rooney but maybe that is putting too much pressure on the lad.
you guys, so typical....

if kane were playing for man utd, you would be saying otherwise...

it's only a matter of time until someone bring wilson up... oh never mind someone has...

f**k Harry Kane too!
+2
Rumors that Ramires is for sale. Would love him here.
+3
Would be a great addition. But if we're after Strootman, too then someone will have to go. Fletcher may consider retiring, and Anderson needs to go asap. But who else?
Apparently, it is said to be a swap deal + cash for Pogba.
Juve will never do it IMO.

Juve will never do it IMO.
Ramires + about 20+ Million for Pogba. i would take it.
+1
Am i the only one who thinks R9 was better than CR7?
+3
How and what basis did you compare them to come to the point R9 is better?

You can't compare two players from different generations tbh,add to that they don't have similar playing style and R9 was out and out striker,Ronaldo isn't!

I think its pointless to compare two great players just because they have same name LOL

Personally,I like both and I'm not going to compare.
+5
is R9 better than messi?
+2
nope. its sad that he was plagued with injuries
+4
I use to think R9 was the best ever player before his injuries. Ronaldo was also in a time where different football was played, and other legends existed. But Messi and Ronaldo seem to be making us forget about past legends with their goalscoring habits. They're just excelling too far and too fast. But Zidane and Scholes will always be ahead of everyone in my books (though they play in different positions than the other three haha, but still).
I think you guys are remembering the fat injured R9 at Madrid and even that ronaldo was great. before his injuries he was unplayable. skills like ronaldinho, passing like ozil and dribbling like messi with top quality finishing. he would humiliate defenders and keepers on a regular basis. up until 1999 when he started getting injured he was averaging about a goal a game. You have to remember that the ronaldo that we saw at madrid was after he missed almost 3 seasons of football with injuries and was nothing like the ronaldo at PSV, Barca or even Inter.
+2
@SIF: Messi is something else. You cant compare him with anyone.
I think SIF was saying that because CR7 is better than Messi, and asking that original question you'd have to ask yourself is he better than messi? If he is not then there is your answer, not better than CR7. If he is, well then we have a real comparison to make.

Not my opinion but just the way I interpreted it.
One thing I respect about CR7 is his intense work ethic. I have never seen any player work as hard as he does to become a better player.

I'll be honest, I have not seen as much of R9 as I should, so I can't make a comparison with him to CR7 or Messi. That's just my spiel on CR7.
+2
So surprised a Barca fan would say that. Sure you can compare him with other players. And people do every day - to Ronaldo.
+2
Ronaldo was something special too. there is a reason they call him "the phenomenon". with the exception of Cristiano and Messi there is no one playing currently who can be mentioned in the same sentence as him. In 2002 madrid spent 46 million euros on a player who had only managed 24 games in 3 seasons.
+3
I still think R9 is better than CR7 because I have manage to grew up and manage to watch most of his games before he got injured. Although it hard to compare who is better, but R9 overall ability is imo ahead of CR7 and most of his goals are open play not pen
+2
Cristiano might be the better athlete but Ronaldo was a better footballer.
+2
Ronaldo would of been all time great if he didn't have his problem
But CR7 is right now is a machine, there is no one close to him now
+3
I partly agree with Somere. I think it's fair to look beyond records and look at how they stood relative to players of their time. As far as pure excitement to watch I will always pick R9 at his peak over CR7. Some the things R9 pulled out are yet to be imitated. National team or club he was just beyond real before his injuries. Even with just 1 season in spain (before his injuries) he set a goal scoring record that hasn't been beaten until Messi in 2010. That alone I think says a lot about how great he was for his time. That said though as an athlete and all around player it has to be CR7 hands down.
+3
You're not the only one Somere. I believe Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima was arguably better than both Messi and Ronaldo, when in his prime. Meaning PSV, Barca and Inter.

Sadly R9 spent more time on the sidelines than he did on a pitch. The way he played the game though it's no surprise really. He had defenders going at his legs for 90 minutes straight every single game, constantly humiliating everyone. He had it all.

I grew up watching the phenomenon and I have yet to see someone do what he did years ago. He practically changed the way the game was played back then bringing futsal to the pitch. I used to call him "the one man team" literally. He could do it on his own!
+2
i think this question would be better asked on the madrid page. considering they had both of them play for them. But as Somere said he literally had it all as a striker from the technical to the physical aspects.
He had his best season at barca imo. He is imo the best striker of all time. He tore through center backs it was unreal. However it is impossible to compare players from different eras. Stats alone he is not as good as messi/cristiano
If we are comparing the two player we have to also look at stats. CR7 imo has the better attributes in heading, shooting, speed, weak foot, work ethic, physicality, skills, finishing, passing (assists), goals per game/goals per season.
CR7's ridiculous amount of goals every season alone should put him past R9. Both players in their prime, I would take CR7 into my team any day.

it says we have the second youngest squad in the league. 25.44 is our average age. City are the oldest at 28.8, which means they have to replace some key players in the next couple of years, whereas as we have room to grow. chelsea are at 27.08, arsenal at 26.00, and southampton at 25.57 making them third youngest in the league which is impressive. out of all the top, best clubs in EU, we have the youngest squad.
+7
falcao recently did an interview, says he feels close to 100% match fit. if he doesn't play in the reserves this week, he's likely to start vs villa.

i remember watching a program on a club i think was called accrington stanley a while back. tiny club on the coast or something, would have been cool for utd to go there but we landed yoevile. i hope we get a solid mix of reserves and first teammers so we can see what some of the reserves like periera and rothwell can do.
