I'm hearing that we're closing in on Blind.
Has anyone actually seen him play outside of the world cup? I haven't and I'd like to know more about the kind of player he is. I heard he's strong, athletic and versatile but how good of a signing would he hypothetically be if we got him?
"It's obviously disappointing that we've only got one point on the board but it's like the manager has said - you've got to believe in his philosophy which all the players are doing.

"It's not going to take a day or a week or a month, it might take longer but we're working hard in training and we're trying to play the manager wants us to.

"It's about getting the results now and we've got another opportunity to do that on Saturday. The way we've trained this week I'm confident everything will click into place and we can get the three points and kick on from there"- ashley young

i know what the team is trying to do ashley young. what are YOU doing to help? (besides being a parrot and trying to suck the LVG d to stay in the team)
I was reading it with so much hope till is saw '-ashley young'. LOL

having a man crush on cr7 right now
His pressers are top notch. Quite different to the Moyes era, more like SAF (although perhaps more candid than SAF).

http://www1.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/teams/manchester-united/9445886/gale-expects-lvg-to-be-busy

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28990722

It's funny though how different media report the same press conference. I saw the whole thing on mutv earlier this afternoon, and the context was very confident. But some media report how LVG aims for top 4 almost as a negative 0 like it is the best the club can achieve. Others report his comments more truly, that he believes the title is still the aim this season and about his goals to win the champions league.
+1
I don't care how the media takes it, to be honest.

I, as a fan, could watch his press conferences all day long. haha He's so in control of the situation and is very clear about his plan and vision.

It's strange to even think about that but Moyes happened. So, yeah.
+3
So savage thinks lvg won't change the system until he tries it with the players he wants. Only then will he switch to 4-3-3 and presumably make a tough decision to leave out mata rvp or Rooney.

http://m.bbc.com/sport/football/28972366
He's right about a lot of things in that article...

"I've heard it described it as a modern-day full-back but that is not the case because if your team is playing 4-3-3 the left-sided midfielder will come out and help and, in a 4-4-2, the winger will support you.
As a wing-back in a 3-4-1-2 like United use, however, you do not really have any support."

"That is where United have been found out in the first couple of games this season when they have asked wingers like Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard to play as wing-backs.
What United do not have at present is a strong central trio in defence - they do not have a leader in there with the authority to organise them and the players around them."

That being said, do you think we will see the same formation tomorrow?
yeah i posted it because i think it makes sense and agreed with his analysis. defense is unorganized, midfield is sloppy, so wing backs are defending more than attacking and because they are wingers they suck at it and it puts us at even more of a disadvantage defending and means no chances created as the 3 uptop don't have the pace to get in behind and stretch teams
which is why most of us dislike the 3-5-2 formation..i mean come on,we are MU not Netherlands,big class difference in defense.
even with the addition of rojo,im still not too confident on our defense unless shaw,rafa,jones are free from injuries and we don't run into defensive mid probs either.
i would rather promote a youth defender than play young,jesse and valencia in defense.
Cmon, lets not do this we are not Everton thing again. Yes LVG used that formation for the Dutch but its not a Dutch formation. Actually, 433 is traditionally a dutch formation. It will take time to get it right because it is different from what they are used to but you should be winning games against Swansea(H) and MK Dons (A). That is not the result of the formation.
Reports are saying we aren't interested in Carvalho...lol what now?
Uh... can we get scholes back again?
Says who?
+2
A lot of Sky Sports/BBC journalists, Daniel Taylor. a journalists for the Guardian, ESPN, talkSPORT radio, the list goes on if you don't believe me.
http://talksport.com/football/insider-trading-man-united-are-not-either-vidal-or-carvalho-140829110836

http://www.espn.co.uk/football/sport/story/338421.html

Maybe it's a smokescreen? Who knows, but we might get only one player if that's the case.
I haven't seen one article about dropping interest in Carvalho, almost always the opposite.

Link?
@MUFC Agreed mate.

Talksport is almost as bad, if not worse than the average tabloid: metro, daily fail, mirror, etc.

And ESPN isn't a reliable source. They are generally as bad as the rest of the lot (above). When was the last time ESPN broke a story about a club transfer that actually happened?.. lol.

All of the reliable sources, such as Ogden, are saying the club is actually quite serious about Carvalho.
I've not seen anything either Stret.

Talk sport is an awful source and so is ESPN.
+1
How is ESPN a terrible source lol?

Wasn't Mark Ogden the same guy that said Thiago to Utd was a done deal? Lol, we shouldn't be discrediting any sources as nothing is concrete at the moment. I think this story is true as we have 3 days left and we've haven't tested the resolve of Sporting's will to keep the player by placing a bid. We might go for other options like de Jong, or maybe even Blind soon.

http://www1.skysports.com/transfer/news/12691/9446343/transfer-news-juventus-confirm-arturo-vidal-will-stay-despite-man-utd-link

Done and dusted. Next target!
@tk86

lol we need money and he needs to move for the sake of himself as well...

lvg said more are expected to come / leave... 2 days left.... gotta act fast
Then dont give them Chicharito. Next!
@ToD
There are many teams who are interested including Valencia and Benfica. Im sick of other teams giving us hard time to sign players
So I think Shinji to Dortmund seems like a done deal. His wiki page bio lists him as a Dortmund player.

Wish him the best of luck and I hope he makes us regret not playing him.

Edit: Never mind, someone seems to have changed his team back to United.
If we never bought Mata, kagawa would be a starter in this system
+3
Mata > Kagawa.
+3
lol Sneijder and Thiago were once a United player in Wiki, people just like to mess around

Our style just doesn't suit him. Only if we play counter football, he might be our best player. Thinking about clubs that suits him, Barca, Arsenal might fit his style.
Dortmund Kagawa > Mata!!
+7
^Every single day!
What if, everything was plan by LVG ?

First game defeat to Swansea 1-2 LVG said:

"I know the positions we need. The players just didn't reach the level."

Result: Bought a left back. He made Woodward realize that United won't cope without a new defender.

Second game draw vs Sunderland 1-1 LVG said:

"Our passing let us down, we need more creative passing."

Result: He made Januzaj (a natural winger) play in as CM ahead of Kagawa. A few hours later United sign Di Maria.

Third game defeat vs MK Dons LVG said:

"I have seen them trying to their utmost best. You can't expect more of the players."

Result: United trying to offload some players. Cleverley, Kagawa, Zaha, Welbeck, Chicharito.

This guy is a mastermind. I really think everything was plan well before. He also knew that Woodward wouldn't make any move until he found it necessary. He is like, ok you want me to build a new team, bring in my philosophy, my tactics (3-5-2 or 4-3-3) then bring in the players i require and sell those that i don't need.

IMO he don't need 3 months to get things done. We are already in it. Just watch his reactions during those 3 games we played. He didn't seem to panic or scream at the players. Kept calm, writing some kind of stuffs (maybe drawing some funny art) and at times speaking with Giggs. He knows where he is going.

Believe me this guy is far from being an idiot.

Like i said: He is the lion at the head of an army of sheep. :)
+2
2-3 more players to come in before deadline?
by that logic we will lose 5 nil against burnley
He's no idiot, but no professional coach throws games.

I really don't think that if Shaw, Herrera, Evans, Carrick, etc were fit, we'd be playing Young and Cleverley and Keane.

That said, I do agree that within the losses, he know's what he is doing.
+1
what? what? what did I just read?
+3
then why did he decide to win all pre season friendlies and score tons of goals. I would have been better to perform terribly in pre season, buy necessary players and start of the season with a bang
+2
No man... Just don't. I know it hurts to see United this way, but don't go there. I don't like the conspiracy theory. Let's just face the truth... We were s**t, let's get on with it. We'll have a better idea where we are after some of the players are back from injury.
