What a crucial victory! All of top 8 teams won their mid-week game. Now to the double home win
Whats going on with Luke Shaw?
tight hamstring
If you bought his jersey at the beginning of the season you're out of luck. He changed his last name to Room, first name Emergency.
he's just 19, he shouldn't be playing week in week out like he did last season at southampton. he's still going to be developing physically until 21 or so, don't want him to ruin his career from overuse.i'd really like us to get another fullback that is comfortable on both flanks. rojo can do a job but he's needed in cb.
I've called Sav a lot of things over the years but after Sholesy's mutterings he'll always be referred to as Knobhead!!!!

Another uninspiring performance from us, LVG needs to subtract a little ball control for directness but anyone who remembers me from my sporadic posts will know I'm the patient type.

Anyhoo, if we continue to get the results over our next fixture period i wont complain, I'm not a purist although i enjoy near perfect performances as much as the rest of MUFC fan's. I've been around since Sir Alex joined and I've seen all sorts of performances/results. But we need to improve exponentially over the next few weeks, at least looking at our fixtures we will not play to many teams that will purely focus on containing us/counter attacking when we get the opportunity to play with freedom and ingenuity, bring on a team will open up and try and go at us, we have the players to punish such game plans, its been proved this season. We categorically are not the team we were in the SAF era, but f**k that, numbers are all that counts in the grand scheme of things, points secured are the be all and end all.

praying for more cohesive and less frantic performances but from a non purist lets do it over the next month and show them the real MUFC!!!
Come to think of it, ADM played his best on counters with his pace and taking on defenders, this article makes a point that the "posession" style just doesnt suit the player who is more accustomed to fast paced runs and quick plays. Thoughts?

Well he was pivotal in the Madrid side last season who were probably the best counter attacking team in the world.

He needs to play LCM in a 4-3-3 with proper runners on the channels who he can supply, alternate and general thrive off.

I think our football is too slow in general and not just for ADM.

we've sold/loaned out our pacy strikers in Hernandez and welbeck and Nani.. who epitomized the kind of fast paced style under SAF.

Instead opted for far (better finishing?) strikers and possession. For possession plays, i think LVG didnt need that much pacy players.. kinda makes sense the article.

Problem with that is that we don't have the players with close ball control technical ability like the current bayern/barca side that can squeeze in the narrow gaps in midfield and create space.
He doesn't suit our pointless possession style of play.

Passing the ball around and not penetrating teams thats why its so easy to defend against our style of play. Teams sit back, look to counter and hope we don't score first or get luck

@Zhenwei

I agree with all that mate.

We need more pace in the side, ADM is the only real runner, Rooney has got decent speed when he gets going but that's not what he's about at all, Young and Valencia are a bit lacklustre as wingers.

I think Hernandez was never going to be valued here as his game outside the box is virtually non-existent, LVG does not like poachers, Welbeck I think was stuck between a rock and a hard place, he has good technical skills but his end product is poor and he wanted to be a forward and I don't think LVG was ever going to accept a forward with poor end product even if he did have the athletic and technical quality we needed.

I'd like to Dybala and Depay come in this summer, I think both transfers are reasonably doable and would inject real pace and technical quality into the attack, I would normally say Reus before Depay but with him signing a new contract I expect any transfer dogfight for him to get pretty out of hand and he has picked up a lot of injuries in the last 18 months, last think we need is more crocks.
This article makes perfect sense. Di Maria likes to run at defenders and run in the channels in a counter attacking style of play and when he passes the ball it's mostly direct through balls to our strikers. He just doesn't suit our style of play at the moment. He can't place simple passes to the players next to him.
Everyone cant figure what is lvg thinking!!he is f*****g shet.whatt the point having possesion game if all our attack based on crossing.this is not stoke nor west ham..
+4
No. Lvg's tactics are one thing but if the players are showing no passion, no balls, no heart, then there's only so much he can do..
That being said, he really needs to drop Fellaini
+5
It's not entirely surprising as this set up reminds me a lot of the way the Dutch played during the WC. A lot of possession and nick a goal here and there and look how far they got. I'm not saying I'm happy with it, just not surprised. I think he wanted ADM to take up that Robben role but that hasn't really panned out for either of them.
Everyone cant figure what is lvg thinking!!he is f*****g shet.whatt the point having possesion game if all our attack based on crossing.this is not stoke nor west ham..

His philosophy is 100% possession win you games. Seriously, not enough penetration is the problem.
I agree that our direction isn't fully clear yet, maybe he doesn't have the right players for what he wants to do, he needs to be getting more out of our players though because we have great players here.

But this is a bit OTT mate, he is not a "shet" manager.
if his philosophy is 100% possession wins you games,then i'll believe it will work..ONLY if our attack has the penetration..right now we have 0 penetration with our strikers..eventhough rooney has come back as striker,i still see him playing the role of setting players up,which is what our midfielders should be doing for rooney..imo we need a clinical striker next season to partner rooney.
As much as we deserved, we dominated the game and Krul kept em in it, props to Spanish Dave with some big saves but that's what he's there for, on the balance of the play that game was easily ours.

Look at the scenes after that goal, look at Rooneys determination in the build up, don't anyone try and tell me these lads are not fighting for this club, count us out at your peril, we aint f*****g done yet gentlemen.

The return of heart attack United, welcome back old friend.
+1
Grinding results, true devil spirit, heart attack and Fergie time Lol we miss them so much
+1
Carrick comes on and seconds later we snatch a unlikely winner. I hope this is a good sign. This was our easiest 3 points in the next month or so and we almost fluffed it, we shouldn't be expecting Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City to be this easy or them to be making these kind of mistakes. For one we wont have as much as 70% possession against these teams.
No s**t! Carrick comes on and we win, he's the missing ingredient all these recent games.
looking at arsenal and liverpools form it is going to be very very difficult and our attack is gonna have to pull of something special to get ahead.
Hopefully Carricks return will improve the general performances, our record with him in the side is very good, its a huge plus having him back.

Yeah we cant take anyone lightly not just Arsenal, Liverpool and City, its going to be a proper dogfight but I maintain what I've been saying, we will get top 4, I do think we'll get 3rd and I'm happy to be held to that.

Have to start making our dominance count, like the Sunderland game we had 70% of the ball again and in lots of good areas, need to start killing sides off when were on top, need that ruthless edge back.
lmao we still have not won an away game without carrick, nutters.
@ Stan, you know how we are completely vulnerable on the counter...just like last time we played - I think that's going to be the easiest way to a goal. However, it's at OT right? You'll probably have more possession and we'll probably s**t the bed like we always do against u guys.
all things aside i really liked young's passion after the goal, you could see from his celebration that it meant alot to him
+4
After his horrible season under Moyes, he wanted to prove himself, good for him
+1
possession play... but we are not penetrative enough. instead the usual story is that we are being hit so badly on the counter, with lots of space behind our defence. If not for DDG...

that slip by herrera, and a few other balls lost high up on the pitch by our last defenders.. we really need to sort that out before we meet stronger teams.
