sterling has been a massive player throughout the season and he's only getting better each game... those who say januzaj is better or at least on par are clearly man utd biased...
But no one said it this season, so I don't know what point you're trying to make ?
+3
I think our formation against Leicester yesterday should be our starting XI for the remaining games.

AV25, Jones, Rojo, Shaw as back four. Even though i really rate Rafael but Valencia's work rate is much better and his physical presence is needed.

Blind playing in front of our defense is where he suits best. In that Carrick role. Even though i rate Carrick but he's injured atm and considering his age he won't keep the same level for a long time.

Rooney is useless in that midfield role. Back passes, longs balls and he don't even know how to tackle. Herrera should play there, he has the skills, creativity and work rate to perform in that position.

Januzaj is just lacking some gametime but i think we need his technique on that wing. He can easily take on 2,3 defenders and create something on the wings.

Then, between Rooney, ADM, RVP and Falcao it will be hard. Considering Rooney is our captain he will start but as right winger or playing just behind the striker. I think ADM is better playing behind the striker.

RVP and Falcao are getting their form back and this is a real threat for our opponents but we somehow one will have to be on the bench.

This is what im thinking at the end:

DG

AV25--JONES--ROJO--SHAW

HERRERA--BLIND

ROONEY--ADM--JANUZAJ

RVP/FALCAO
We were very balanced most of the game. But we need minor changes at our defense line to cope with other teams nature up against fast or tall strikers. The midfield and striker combination should stay the same

Tribute to DDG by Aditya. Thought I should share this.
“We want to help Fletcher. That is my only concern. I am very happy he is coming back. Manchester United just want to help him play more.” - LvG
two things we lack that would win us the title.

ince and keane
I think we've still got Di maria and Rooney's position mixed up..It would be more efficient for Rooney to play behind the front 2 and fancy some goal scoring chances from there rather than sitting deep as a CM...Also Di Maria is much better if played at CM, as he will get more room to run from there rather than at AM where he's got nowhere to run.Often he is too quick for other players to join him and no one to pass to when he runs past the defenders leaving him with no options other than take a chance himself, and we all know about his finishing..

So won't it be wiser if ADM would play as a CM and create more chances from there and Rooney a better finisher play up??

P.S. Blind was superb once again, even better performance than against QPR.😃
rooney on the basis of today should be sat on the bench. he is shite in midfield, even against the league's bottom team. utterly terrible - a liability.

he needs to get out of midfield forever. and yes, adm should be there on the left of a midfield 3.
Agree with the point that Di Maria needs to be deployed as a CM. We need him on the ball as much as possible but i dont mind seeing Rooney in midfield. Di Maria is at his best when he is playing in a 3 man midfield.

di maria loses the ball a lot, i think that's why he cant be behind rooney in a midfield 3

ok rooney makes a lot of wayward passes, but it's probably less strain on a defense to pass the ball 50 yards and miss as opposed to dribble and get dispossessed.
+1
He also doesnt track back like Rooney. Since Januzaj was playing who isnt great at defending either, Rooney was needed in defense. Plus LVG likes to have DM7 up front for counter attack
real trouble imo is too many strikers, no creators or ball-winners.

our first two goals were from turnovers - just like the newcastle game in december. turnovers against a side sloppy in possession not from genuine creativity in our side.

with more midfield players who can win the ball we can create more chances in transition before they can park the bus. too many strikers = not enough chances
I don't get why we don't start one striker upfront. We should try playing Falcao on his own for once and see how he does.

We play two strikers who always have their back to goals when they receive the ball. We should be looking to play them through balls or whip in dangerous crosses which is impossible to defend. I wouldn't mind having Beckham teaching our wingers how to curl in a dangerous cross.
I was actually surprised to see RVP getting subsituted at around the hour mark, thought Falcao is the one to be subsituted. But,just like Herrera can't get a sniff of first team football,similarly, RVP too will always start as the main striker as long as LVG is in charge.

So, can't even imagine seeing Falcao playing on his own upfront.
lvg thinks he is playing fifa so he puts his fastest player in the front
rooney is rubbish in midfield..1 out of 10 games i'd say he'd perform well as cm..but other than that his passes go nowhere,unnecessary long balls..he pretty much just sits back and boots the ball up front or back..we already have blind for that role and he is by far way more effective at passing.
as for di maria,he seems frustrated not receiving the ball when making a run every time..
+1
herrera shits on rooney in midfield. but then so do a lot of midfielders. not many strikers make better midfielders than rooney does - but most midfielders do and so do a fair few centrebacks. cleverley is better in midfield than rooney.

if you can't drop rooney for a more effective midfielder, drop a f*****g striker and stick the hair-plugged prat up front already
@Kayteo @Stan182 and I saw a different picture somehow. It feel like we were watching 2 different United games.

ADM is clearly declining, and he played in his normal CM position, so what excuse we give him? I dont know, I read a lot here yesterday, but the only one valid point that comes up is: "he played on too many position so give him some time" Well that can be said about every player and he is still average in our squad for now vs team that is on 20th position at home game, but whatever makes you sleep better.

On Rooney case I would say: there was clearly 1 long ball missed pass yesterday from 8-12 he made? I wish I could see his stats to prove my point, but basically, there was 1 cut long ball he made himself, and there were about 2-3 long balls that were just cut off but by opposing player, but not necessarily were going off target, which is not his fault.

So in general his long passing Was on target, as well as frankly he was not the one to give the pass always back this game as well as he was dealing fine under pressure, he did lose in rare cases ball, but then he immediately recovered it. And he was involved AGAIN with his corner assist on 3rd goal.
Because of his vision BTW crosses were very effective that game so yeah, figures Rooney is horrible "1 out of 10 games i'd say" in CM.

So lets make Rooney a villain I agree with no backup on why exactly he is the one.
I have been busy with school and work Its good to see smile on you guys man utd doing well the last few games. glory man Utd

BREAKING: Sam Allardyce says negotiations to sign Darren Fletcher have broken down. More on #SSNHQ
Oh well.

His contract expires this summer, we were willing to wave a transfer fee to push through the move so its pretty clear he wont be staying on past the summer.

Would of been smarter for him to make the move early and get settled in for next season.
What now for Fletch?

My opinion he should just hang up his boots
im sure fletcher ando is gone by the end of season.hope pereira is staying,i never seen him play for 90min but just dont want another pogba story.most importantly is DDG,he should tie up his contract soon.hopefully zaha nani is given another chance under lvg to challange the right wing spot,i know valencia work rate is much better but to play every match at top level as first eleven and not able to cross or beat defender is blshitt..
piece of s**t... shitty players are so hard to offload, cleverley and now fletcher... good players are so hard to buy... man utd's luck
what herera need to do get into lvg starting eleven?so much bulshitt.im sure when young is back he will take shaw or blind place as lwb or lb.we really need a new rw,its so obvious our right side is not threating enough unless rafael play as rb.januzaj hv improve his game compare to previous match#GGMU
+3
Agree with most of that.

We need to see more of Herrera, not sure Young will walk straight back in as LB but if we go back to 3-5-2 (I hope not) he will almost certainly go back in at LWB.

Our right side is s**t, Januzaj needs to find his groove, probably needs a run of starts to get himself going again, the talent is there.

Not sure if Rafael has a future here mate, I really rate Rafa but he is so damn injury prone and I've got doubts over whether LVG even rates him.
Honestly, I was thinking the same thing. Herrera has been one of our only consistently good players this season (alongside DDG and Blind imo). He should have started instead of Adnan today, but I think LvG thought this would be a good opportunity to give Adnan the 90 mins, at home vs Leicester.
I hope he starts the next game. If LVG insists on playing Rooney as CM, I'd LOVE to see him play as AM in front of ADM/Rooney and right behind our two strikers.
hopefully he starts vs cambridge utd.
im sure young will walk straight to the team as lwb or lb.for me herera hv prove enough,he deserve to be a starting eleven even if fella n carrick available.januzaj hv improve,he also play well against cambridge i guess.i mean he got his confidence back to take the defender.what annoy me most is right side.valencia seem not learn anything.so if we can get a rw who can cross and beat defender we will be much better bcos rooney like to spread and cross to the right side.blind really did well,i like he take place the role of carrick.he prove that with forward pass that lead rvp goal.
this is a pathetic state of affairs, rather than play herrera, who is one of the most productive midfielders in the PL, LVG sticks rooney there, who is pants in midfield.

rooney is a big problem for this side - too good to drop (apparently) but not a better striker than RVP or falcao, and he's a s**t midfielder compared to herrera.

rather than have a balanced side that works he sticks rooney is a position where he's terrible... picking rooney just because he's rooney and not because he's effective.
@MUFC LVG praised Rafael for his attitude when he got injured and tried to stay on. So I guess that means he rates him to some extent. But you're right, he's so prone to injuries you'd think his future here is not guaranteed.

Btw people need to calm down about Herrera. We have a big squad, and like LVG said himself, he can only choose 11 players for each game. I'm sure herrera will get his run of games just like Falcao is. We did well with Blind and Rooney in the middle so I for one am not complaining.
Lampard to score winner as sub? Thatd be hilarious
