I've been thinking, which Latin American player had a great career here because looking at now Falcao and Di Maria did not work well, Rafael used to great but... and in my memories Forlan, Veron, Kleberson, Anderson all didn't work out for us. The only one I can recall is Heinze even though he was only with us for 3 years.
Yeah South American players never really lit the world on fire at United
tevez was a good player while here, if we are talking performances.
MUST watch. Tony this season...

What are your opinion on this?

http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/van-gaal-consider-breaking-up-8777888

I'd prefer lone striker upfront with double pivot players right now.

I agree, as an idea:

If we get everyone back, Rooney as sole striker, pack the midfield with attacking players, two of Herrera/Di Maria/Mata in a center three with either Carrick/Blind to anchor.

Since we don't have effective dynamic goal-scoring wingers. Valencia on the right to give us width (even though he's been an ineffective winger), Young/Januzaj on the left depending on if we're at home or away.
4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3. One can't hark on about it enough. It feels fairly evident moreover that either would bring an instant increase in balance and fluidity. It's only that LVG would have to make the hard decision, and leave 3/4 strikers out of the starting 11, unless wazza plays in the hole.

LVG is historically a 4-3-3 manager. It is his system. But I think he has been trying to accomodate too many players (i.e., 4 strikers), at the cost of obvious fluidity and balance if he were to add an extra in midfield. What is it - 100m in the frontline? To leave out 3 and play only 1 up top, is a big yet what appears increasingly necessary decision.
I don't know why all the pundits and oppossing fans are trying to write us off in our tough upcoming fixtures lol.

Didn't we already beat arsenal, liverpool and everton so easily? only lost to city when we had 10 men for 80mins. Drew against chelsea and spurs.

I've said it a couple of times and I will say this again this season we played better against the bigger sides because they attack and leave space when we counter. Against the smaller sides who park the bus we struggle and run out of ideas.

Are arsenal, spurs and liverpool going to park the bus like the midtable and bottom teams we faced? I don't think so. Its in those type of games di Maria and Valencia will have so much space to run into.
+2
lol so easily? We survived arsenal and liverpool thanks to de gea, we were heavily dominated... ok we also escaped everton thanks to a couple of very fine last minute saves from de gea... de gea saved us all basically...

Against chelsea we narrowly escaped at the last minute, i can argue that ivanovic red was a bit too harsh and had he been on the pitch, the whole set piece would have taken a diferent story...

just admit that we have been playing a not so satisfying football this season... the tactic, confidence, and line ups have to change....
+17
"so easily? We survived arsenal and liverpool thanks to de gea, we were heavily dominated"

Bullshit.

Liverpool did not dominate at Old Trafford and deserved exactly what they got from that game, a 3 nil spanking.

Granted Arsenal dominated at the Emirates, I wont argue against that but as Cjay rightly said we countered well and exploited the space a side like Arsenal leaves, we should almost certainly have scored a third ay the Emirates too.
+5
Ok maybe I exaggerated by saying easy but its not all doom and gloom at the moment.

@Tod I never said we're playing brilliant football I said we played better against those sides thats all
De Gea saved us but he's doing his job exceptionally while the rest are not performing consistently.

@MUFC1990

no offense, but your comment is always so predictable, always without question turn down pessimism and criticism, refuse to accept that our club was just not performing and refuse to criticize our club regardless how we perform on the pitch (unless when the matter is obvious such as first half performance against burnley)... you are bordering between confidence and arrogance/ignorance...

ok we were not heavily dominated by pool, but their attack was much more fluid, they had a lot more clear cut chances, and if they were able to capitalize and if de gea wasn’t with us that day, the score could have been very different, no one would deny that... we won not because we were the superior team, we won because they were sucks at finishing and we had a good goalie...
+14
Agree with TOD on this
+5
@ToD

Where did I turn down criticism of our performances?

We've played like s**t since Christmas, I've said it several times, loads of possession, no cutting edge, check my comments, I turned down the idea that we got dominated by Liverpool, we did not get dominated by Liverpool, that's just daft negativity.

Call it arrogance, I couldn't care less tbh, you're a s**t excuse for a supporter, telling me my comments are predictable, that's a bit rich, i can predict the kind of nonsense you come out of with on a daily basis, just a never ending stream of negativity, people like you on this forum cant even bear to compliment the club when we do something right.

No need to worry anyway, I'm leaving the forum, your lot have took over this sorry excuse for a fan page, I'm getting into too many petty disputes and its bad for the website and its not how I like to do things.

Sorry if I've pissed anyone off these last few weeks, it wasn't my intention, perhaps I'm a bit more entrenched into the club than others on here, I just don't believe in endless toxic negativity, I hope we finish the season strongly.
+9
Agree with mufc. This forum is just way too negative. Probably whe worst forum in footytube. Its just depressing to come here nowadays. This forum was doing much better when Moyes was in charge.
+1
lol we did not get dominated by liverpool. granted, they broke well and created a fair few chances on the break, but to say they dominated makes no sense. their defending was shite and we took advantage of that especially given the deer in headlights they had in goal.

and mufc is correct, our last good performance was boxing day vs newcastle, we have been avg at best since then. in the begining of the season we played very well in spurts, were scoring all the time in the first half, but struggled in the second half. now it seems we are struggling for most if not all of the match unless a sub comes on in the last half hour of a game we are chasing.

tbf it is tough to be optimistic when week in week out we are under-performing but the negativity in this forum has been on max since fergie left. there has been unrest for years but now that the boss is retired and we are not in pristine position in the league it seems people take that as free license to be telling our best stars to leave, or saying we don't deserve hasbeens like nani, predicting we get smashed and almost taking glee in just being right if we play poorly or lose.

+1
@MUFC Was a matter of time really. I'm surprised you, SIF and a mere few others even lasted this long!

Looking back most of the old users who made this forum what it is are now long gone.

Sad rly, but it is what it is...
Hang in there folks. You have ridden it out long enough. This year and CL football will be the turning point for the side. If it has to be via not so beautiful football in the short run, so be it. United have enough firepower to get out of this slump soon.

Tempers, negativity and squabbles are part and parcel of the game. Your lot has proven that you can support the club no matter what.

@MUFC - even though TOD is negative he has stuck around as a true supporter unlike many others. Both of you want the same end result but the expression levels are different. You should both accept that.
+1
@tomikato
Thanks tomi

@MUFC1990
Oh gosh I was wrong to say we were dominated by Liverpool (was just being lazy to type it separately from arsenal), stop picking on it.... My other points were valid.... I'm never negative on my club especially without any reasons...

"I can predict the kind of nonsense you come out xxx"

Ok predict one then, did you predict I would say your comment was predictable?

"People like you can't even bear to compliment the club when we do something right"

We rarely did something right... But when we did I would be the first to compliment... You would think a guy like me won't stand a defeat... But you know what, my proudest moment on this club this season was actually when we lost 1-0 against city... In fact I was more pleased with this game than when we beat arsenal and Liverpool...in that game we played like a true champion.

"I'm getting into too many petty disputes"
why? Some self reflection is needed here... You know how ppl say that only troublesome people get into troubles? Also I believe your dispute was mainly with someone who was trying to criticize our club... I rarely got into disputes but even if I did it's not just with the optimists but also with the pessimists...

"Sorry if I've pissed anyone off xxx"
No problem, you've been pardoned

"I hope we finish this season strongly"
We all do mate

You can't leave MUFC1990
MUFC1990-You don't remember vs Liverpool - Sterling could've had at least 2 goals before you guys even got 1 on the counter? You guys were lucky he was so shyte that day. Going 2-0 would've changed the dynamics of the game that day.

I'll certainly give United credit though. For as terrible as you have played in some games, you find a way to get points out of it. I've read some comments from you guys about only being able to come back when SAF was the manager, well maybe you haven't been coming back in games, but you've snatched points in the last 5 minutes numerous times.
i didnt read the part about you quitting the site, you cant give in mate, we barely have any real mancs on here, besides this has to be the biggest or second biggest club page on this site, cant let it fall to the negativity.
MUFC1990

Don't go lol. You're one of the posts I always make sure to read.
Calm down mate, there are two sides in everything although opinions went out of control lately, dont take it personally. We will miss your voice.
So many old time Members have gone... miss the good old days. IMO, it's okay to have differing opinions. It's just different perspectives.

Part of being it a forum is to be able to voice out our different thoughts and opinions. the difference is that we tend to get a little personal and calling each other out for that. I think we could use some restrain on that.

Some might think we have cause for optimism vs negativity (some think the negativity is just being realistic)...

my point is that we don't always have to insist we are right and we could be more gracious in our choice of words.

MUFC1990: i don't know what to say if you quit cos of this..
on current form it looks like we are in for another grinder on monday vs arsenal. we have home advantage, and kept the ball well vs newcastle, but we are still not creating and putting away good chances.

i think it will largely depend on arsenal's gameplan. if they play like they did vs city (disciplined defending), we may be in for a long and frustrating night. if they play like they did vs spurs (@whl, they played like zombies)), then the game might be over in the first half.

i wonder if carrick is fit enough to start the game? probably not. will be interesting to see who starts and who doesn't. adm, adnan, fellaini, shaw, mata, jones, wilson, falcao? .. question marks on all these players. whoscored has us losing by a goal, which is depressing, because they have been pretty accurately predicting our results for a very long time now.
+1
not really, whoscored had us drawing the newcastle match
well obviously they cant account for daft things like a linesman missing a penalty call.

there are too many things in flux at the moment (individual player form and injuries), i hope lvg pulls of something special because we really need to win convincingly and send a message
I always thought lvg is a good tactician, but seeing how things went so far, I am a bit doubtful. Hope he prove me wrong and kill those big teams.

Hope Di Maria will start from bench then get subbed on for counter attack football. Starting him doesnt look like a good idea. And for some reason, I still believe Falcao have something to offer, he havent been involved in big games where physicality is less important. I would like to see how he performs against more technical teams.
Finally I had to resort to using my voodoo dolls on Evans (and RVP) so that LVG stops picking them automatically. But I'm not proud. Well, the end justifies the means.

Seriously though, our most crappy defender and most out of form striker (or is it Falcao?) are now unavailable, literally by act of god, for a considerable time. Who said Lucky Van Gaal?

With Evans banned + Shaw and Carrick not match fit, I think LVG might reverse to 352 for the next game(s) and play on the counter. It worked the last time so...

Herrera ADM

I feel like there is no way Van Gaal starts without Fellaini.

Not to troll u guys...But how confident are u ppl considering the recent forms of both the teams ?
No disrespect but we gonna beat the s**t out of Arsenal on Monday ;-)
+12
Hey that was uncalled for mate, looks like he was only asking for a decent opinion.
+9
we will probably play worse type of football again, but we wont give up and probably go for win on the last minutes as United always does.

I just dont see us loosing at OT, home games aren't too bad this season.
I am going to love watching this game. Should be a fabulous one for a neutral.
We will have one shot on goal and we will win 2-0 :))
+19
^ hahaha....Gibbsy ain't messing up again man !
+1
@Barracuda, I didn't mean to offend him, it's how every fan should feel before a game. I'm always confident because I believe in our team. And we got a great history against Arsenal ;-)
+4
I don't see why we should be scared, yes we have tougher fixtures but if you look at it this way.

We've been much better against the top 6 sides in the league than the midtable and bottom half of the table.

I'm confident we'll play well against arsenal and liverpool because both teams don't sit back and park the bus. When we come up against teams who attack I see players who are in bad form like di Maria having a good game because he'll have much more space to run in to. Against the smaller teams who sit back we struggle to break them down.

So unless wenger adopts a cautious approach like he did against city away I don't see why we can't win against arsenal AGAIN....no offense we even beat you lot when we're absolutely s**t like last season with moyes.
