"United's new crop of 'kids' dragging club back from depths"
Rare footage of LVG on the touchline for MU: (during arsenal game)

This is bonus, during pre-season I think, does it remind you guys of someone?
https://vine.co/v/MEbrmeELQqK
I like his confidence in preparation and tactics, only going to the touchline to adjust the system if needed. He's also always very composed and grounded, to me, when discussing or reflecting on performances.

Anyone catch his post-match on the weekend? He said something to the effect that a top-class team doesn't struggle to keep possession, like we did in the first-half. At the break, he told the lads to keep composed and play the ball (that we lacked confidence on the ball). Even in the face of Aresenal's press, he said "that we still need to do it [play the ball]". At the end of the first half and in the second half, when we managed to play a bit Arensal's press lessened and we did start to create some chances.

Although overall the side didn't play the ball much, and mostly only played on the counter, I nevertheless like how LVG's response was that it is not good enough (playing on the counter is fine, but we need to start being more confident in playing the ball and building from the back).. these demands excite me.
So reus tore ligaments in his ankle and is out until January. Unlucky
another interesting i noticed against Arsenal was...DDG was trying kick the ball long every time he got the ball...something has changed in that match...either he doesn't trust our defense midfield or he is doing under as per LVGs instructions to use Fellaini..In the previous fixtures he always tried to start the attack from back by passing to CBs..
Arsenal were pressing very high so De Gea didn't really have many outlets and playing 3 in the back makes it difficult to keep possession so he had no other option then to kick the ball to Fellaini.

I wonder now that we will play against Hull City and don't need as much defending that we will get to see the Diamond again or maybe a 4141 with Herrera or Mata instead of Fellaini.
Unfortunately both Herrera and Mata have been dropped and I expect them to be on the bench since Fellie is doing ok and Rooney is fully in form. I just hope RvP gets benched for Wilson or Mata playing as CAM and Rooney up front
We were playing on the counter not holding possession well at all.
+1
Even if your teams playing its worst game of the season you will still beat arsenal because wengers tactics are stale and predictable, a bit like the man himself #wengerout
Our next 5 fixtures are:

Hull
Stoke
Southampton
Liverpool
Aston Villa

3 at home, 2 away...

am expecting 9 points minimum..expect Liverpool to raise their game as always...and will be tough one against southampton..
Liverpool always play like Cup Final against us.

I'm worried about Southampton, they have the most tackles in the league so far. We got Shaw injured in a game with few tackles. We may lose our entire team injured against the Saints.
im expecting 10 points at least:

should win all games at home
draw against aston villa
lost against southampton

that's my worst case scenario

good case is a win against aston villa, hence 12 points

Tackles doesn't mean they are going to injure our players lol. As long as they aren't kicking our players in their ankles then they should be fine.
Jones Falcao Rafa and Evans due back for Southampton, rojo should ve back for Liverpool. Hopefully she will be fit by then too. I think 11-13 points is a reasonable target
"Hopefully she will be fit by then too."
Van De Gea is our player of the season. Even thought we made some great signings he seems to get better season after season.

I think him and Rooney are key players for us. If one of these two gets injured then we can say goodbye to top 4.
lol already? di maria is also key
Things are shaping up for you guys to make a solid run back firmly into the top 4. If United hadn't been plagued by injuries you might be even more of a threat. I think you're well on your way to being a force in England and Europe again. LVG has the players on his side, this is something Moyes never was able to do.
+1
Now they need one world class CB and a Matic to shield the back 4..all other departments seem to be covered.
We need wingers as well. Di Maria has been poor when played out wide, Januzaj has been poor out wide as well, and both Valencia and Young are not good enough.
@Tory..playing 4-3-1-2 will solve that winger problem too..

DDG
Back4
Herrera/Fellaini--Blind--Dimaria
Mata
Falcao--Rooney

This is how we should line-up if everyone is fit..
(4-2-1-2-1), play this when we need strength in mid

ddg
rafael, smalling, rojo, shaw
fellaini, blind
herrera
di maria, mata
rooney


or

4-2-3-1

ddg
rafael, smalling, rojo, shaw
herrera, blind
di maria rooney mata
falcao
we need to stop playing dimaria in the wings...he looks more of threat when we play him through the middle...play him in the hole or play him in the 3-man midfield...
@Subhakar7 I'm talking about the future since LVG talks about having balance so I think the 4141 formation will probably be the formation we will use next season and beyond as it will be very difficult to win the league without any wingers.
@toru..ohh..i thought you were speaking about our current situation..i agree that we need wingers for sure...reus looks like a great choice..but the question remains will he join us..??and his injuries these scare the hell outta me..i think we should sign Depay..young,pacy,skillfull and can learn lot under LVG..
LVG loves 4-3-3 he only plays other formations because he's forced to by injuries or lack of quality players. Mark my words next season we will be playing 4-3-3 mostly and I expect him to buy some defenders and Strootman to make this possible.
+1
Someone should tame Southhampton. They need a universal ass wooping, I don't really like to have to deal with two Chelsea like point collecting teams at a time.
Credit where credit's due. They play good football and have relied on home grown talent. You can't really hate them for doing the right thing or playing the right way. If we play well enough then we can beat them fairly without relying on external factors.

Southhampton, Athletico Madrid and BVB are a breath of fresh air in a game that's becoming ruined by Man $hitty, PSG and to a much lesser extent Chelsea (though I note Chelsea have been much better recently, but they did start this worrying trend so deserve some blame).
Manchester United have agreed a swap deal with Bayern Munich that will see Xherdan Shaqiri and £7million in cash arrive at Old Trafford in place of Ander Herrera (Daily Express).

WTF, no, just no.

Atletico Madrid are set to accept a £20million January bid from Manchester United for Brazilian centre-back Miranda (Daily Star Sunday).

Good player but 20mil for 30 yr old is a bit too much isn't it?
Both sites are horrible to use as a source lol.
something in the back of my mind tells me lvg will try and get vertongen if we cant get hummels in the summer. he's basically vermaelen but younger and less injury prone. i would be surprised to see us go for miranda again tbh.
+1
Lol seriously swapping Herrera for Shaqiri after all the trouble we go through to get him, yeh seem about right especially from the source starting with Daily
considering Miranda is a CB , 20 M for him is quite decent price TBH , at least you guys dodge the Belgium bullet by the name of vermaelen
I can not stop laughing !!! Selhurst Park is becoming Loserfool's most haunted ground .
