So using the current van gaal 3-5-2 formation this is what i came up with, and I'm almost 100% sure this is going to be the team. AND IN THIS SYSTEM I USED NO WING BACKS. if u want to use WING BACKS for a more defensive team; swap Mata for Shaw, di maria center (where rooney is) and put valencia as right wing back .

............................DDG..........................
.........Smalling......Evans.........Rojo.........
...................Blind........Herrera...............
.Di Maria.......................................Mata.
.........................Rooney.........................
...............RVP...................Falcao............

What do u guys think ???
Why's everyone sad about welbeck? pretty sure 1-2 seasons ago i saw alot of people on here dying to get rid of welbeck
Because he's about to make Arsenal better!!!! His link up play is class. Probably in the same class as any striker we had. Rooney is killer instinct, rvp is technique, Welbeck was nimble, tricky, and fleet of foot or whatever they say.
Those of you who said Fergie would never have sold Welbeck because he rated him...well you're probably right. But we've sold Hughes, Ince, Kanchelskis, Beckham, Van Nistelrooy and it was never the end of the world

Problem for the gunners is, he don't score. Maybe Welbeck is officially woken up from his slumber after being shipped out, in which case I ain't looking forward to matches at the Emirates
No one wants to see a loyal player leave, especially one thats been at ur club from the age of 8, and has experienced as a fan and player all the glory u have been through... there's certain players that play for the badge, not for the name on their back... Welbz is dat guy
Beckham on why he is sad to see Danny leave...

i'd rather him goto Arsenal than any other rival club tbh..
he's not going to rot on the bench plus wenger will know how to use him more than lvg
He almost cried at one point!!
I think he must've remembered how sad he was when he was sold.
Beckham is such a true Red, he never recovered, quite easy to tell

Manchester United to carry on big spending in January transfer window

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/sep/02/manchester-united-big-spending-january-transfer-window-kevin-strootman

Could you imagine following up this window with Strootman and another quality CB? The club mean business. It's almost like LVG and the board have said: 'alright, no more f**cking around!'

Never mind a league title, which is obviously priority, I really think LVG is serious when he says he wants to leave with a champions league winners medal. Seriously exciting times. I don't remember being so excited about a rebuild since the period between 05-07.

One step at a time.

.
Agreed mate.
I think we're about to build our strongest team since that magical 2008 season.
Ever since Ronaldo left, we've gone downhill. Lost Tevez, Hargreaves to injury, Fletcher to illness, Vidic/Rio became injury prone, Giggs, Scholes, VDS, Gary, O'shea, Park, Brown, etc. all retired/moved on, Evra became error prone, etc.

We didn't properly replace our losses since with proper World Class talent like we should've (I mean Valencia to replace Cristiano Ronaldo? Really?), and it's clear that LVG and the board intend to do so now. The strike force we have now is imo much deadlier than our 2006-09 one.
If and when we strenghten our midfield and defense we could become the best team in Europe again.

Baby steps!
LvG plays football manager like crazy, it's been documented that his career mode is like 16 seasons into the future. he must know the players with crap short term futures if they are on his bench or in squad and decided to clear house.

he will get strootman and everyone and their mama seems to think he is really keen on hummels. lets see if that one happens in the summer. would be over the moon if we could land gundogan or reus but im not gonna be greedy. :P
Interesting:

English speaking players: Rooney, Carrick, Jones, Fletch, Shaw, Evans, smalling, young, powell, Lingard, Janko, Amos, James, Blackett, Wilson, W Keane.

Spanish speaking: De Gea, Mata, Di maria, Falcao, Herrera, Valencia.

Dutch: Rvp, Blind.

Belgium: Januzaj, Fellaini, Janko

bear in mind a lot of the those non english speaking players are quite fluent in english.

Communication should be good hopefully with lvg speaking dutch, spanish and english.
+1
How many languages does LVG speak? Have you seen his speech after Bayern won the league? He speaks relatively fluent German too.

Dutch, English, Spanish, Deutscsh.
forgot rojo in the spanish contingent too
yeah i f*****g love his speech after bayern won the lg hehe, to my knowlege yeah the 4 for mentioned, not bad at all!
English speakers: Rooney.

err that's debatable :P
dey do doh dont dey doh, yeah e did doh didiny doh Haha
+1
Most Dutch can speak German anyway lol
Hummels and reus next summer shud sort that out ;-) and one more dutchie in strootman to keep him company.
Who is Timothy Fosu Mensah?
We just signed him from Ajax. Another defender at least.
A 16 year old defender. He will probably be playing in our academy.

He is from Ajax so he must be talented since they have a great youth set up over there.

If we can keep the real football aside for a moment, I am so excited for FIFA 15 now! United's attack has to be stellar in the game. Yes the midfield and defense will be suspect but buying in those positions in the game is easier and cheaper than buying attackers lol. I might even buy Welbeck back after the first season when Falcao is on his way back to Monaco.
Given all the excitement this last week I think we've all forgotten about Fellaini... We was talking about central midfield options a page back and he didn't even get mentioned, I actually forgot about him lol.

What do you think will happen with Fellaini? Do you think he will get shipped out in January once his ankle is better or will he get a chance? Does he have a future here?

Seems a bit unlikely to me.
LVG may use him when we have injuries and til he can get someone better.
But Felly will have to get used to being defensive and not trying to score
LVG probably forgot he existed too
Asked what he thinks about the Falcao deal, Rooney says Falcao is one of the best players in the world.

It has just hit me that Wayne, rvp, di maria, and Falcao are actually very high on the list of the world's best players. I mean all of them must have been called Top 10 players before by highly respected footballers and pundits. This alone is a major joy. And I haven't even mentioned mata, Januzaj, Rojo, blind, de gea, Rafael, Herrera, Carrick, Shaw, Wilson.
For the final time today, I'll say it... new team is a beast.
The left side of your team may be impressive. But the right side... Much less so.
+1
despite all those players, i bet we will still just shuttle the ball to valencia for a cross............Lol
+1
Jeroen is right,our right side is very weak..attacking wise Di Maria can accomodate for right wing weaknesses,
not sure who can take RB though since rafa is injured..and no,not valencia..
We wouldn't want to lose our traditions or compromise our values now would we SiF
Persistent pessimism is fair... for the moment

Let's be honest, with the players I just mentioned, valencia shouldn't even be getting games til he overcomes his fear of crosses #Dracula bahahah

I think times are officially good again guys, even if it doesn't instantly click, I couldn't care less
Change is good
and some people wondered why we considered cuadrado. valencia it is then. and we all know on a good day, rare tho, he can be quite effective.unless LVG sees youth that can step up or not too far away.
it was a joke, i don't think we will be playing with young and relying on valencia once everyone is fit
"Antonio Valencia is a great player in many ways, but he's rightly nicknamed Dracula in some quarters because he appears to have an appalling phobia of crosses." - Paul Parker

=)))))))))))

With strong fire power, will we see a 4-2-3-1/4-2-1-3/4-2-4 variation formation again? We had Ronaldo, Tevez and Rooney with Anderson/Giggs/Park as AM/wide AM and Carrick and Scholes as deep role. It was successful and we won the double that season. If necessary like the CL final, we sacrificed the AM for flat 3 CM, more defense and rely on the top 3 for offense.

----------De gea------------
Rafael---Jones---Rojo---Shaw
-----Herrera-----Blind------
----------Di Maria----------
Falcao-------RVP-------Rooney

^ actually it look a bit like Real (Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale)

The strikers take turn to penetrate through defenses, confusing defenders, they don't know who to mark, making us unpredictable. It will be deadly but it does require strong chemistry among the three top and all of them must be willing and able to strike down the flank if necessary.
Not a bad idea but the biggest difference is that Ronaldo and Bale are naturally suited to play as wide forwards given their powerful running style and their history as out and out wingers.

Although I actually think Rooney could do that role quite well despite the lack of pace as he tends to roam anyway no matter where he is playing, would be more of a free role, he would play on the inside mainly.

Falcao on the other hand isn't suited to play as a wide forward, he is a born 9, he needs to be the main striker, I want to see him on the shoulder of defenders, running in behind and generally pulling the opposition defence all over the place like he does best.

One of the main reasons I'm excited for Falcao is that he isn't static like Rooney and RVP, he is not a 9 and a half, he wont be dropping deep looking for the ball but will do all the damage we really lack off the ball.

I'd take RVP out of that team, put Falcao in his place and play Januzaj on the right side. I know I've said it a few times but Januzaj needs to be in the starting 11, we need the dynamic he provides.

I really cant see all 3 of our big name strikers starting together, it doesn't seem functional unless Rooney goes into midfield...
