Eid Mubarak to everyone!
So hypothetically , if your team could buy just 2 more players , who'd they be ?

(PS : please don't say messi and ronaldo , at least choose the players actually linked to the club and some reasons as well )
ronaldo and sir alex ferguson
+1
Thank you for your valuable opinion. -_-
If we manage to sign Di Maria and a quality CB to replace Vidic I think our team would be favorites to win the league.
Was t Fergie a striker? Pfft we have too many strikers as it is!
Defender-Benatia

Midfielder-Pogba ;)
+1
@ROonaldoO Favourites? LMAO that should be Chelsea!

We need to go a long way to become favourites.

Rafael returned to Manchester to get treatment on his groin injury.

Is it too late for Varela or Janko to fly out and join the squad on tour? M. Keane has also deputised as RB before.

blackett vs roma

the 3 cb system is great for young cbs imo, gives them more protection.

blackett is a good passer and has good technique, but still not sure about his defending as he hasnt really been tested yet.
Rooney is much better when hes not in the #10 role imo. I really like that hes played on the right, it will allow him to cut inside and get some shots from outside the box or put in a deadly cross to RvP.

same goes for RvP, he would be the RF and will be able to cut in and shoot/cross with his left. ive always said they were our two best crossers and even better they will be crossing to one another to finish it off.|

them cutting inside will give plenty of space to players like Shaw, james, Valencia and Rafa to overlap as well
on the left**
uhhh so i cant edit my comments and when i sign out i cant see my comments, like the post was never made. why is that?
Will Janujaz get a place in our first team this season? Where's he gonna play in this new formation?
If we play with the same system, probably not. He can play the CAM role behind the striker. He could even play as a striker. Once we start playing 433, he will be a starter.
4-3-3,yes.. but if we play this 3-5-2 formation, then he will have very limited playing opportunities, i am afraid.
that pass at 3:15 though to free mata, great vision.

Tee up with Cleverly, and even Herrera like player suffers. Cleverly is useless off the ball..I've never seen him win the ball back when we lose possession.Defensively so inept.
Cleverley time is up at United
in other half of the icc table, milan getting raped by city 4-0 in the 30th minute
+2
Milan have gone right down the shitpan since they sold Ibra and Silva.

City playing a great game though.
+2
Slightly random but did anyone watch inter's win against real Madrid?

I heard Vidic was solid as a rock against in that game.
I was at the game and yes he was very solid but of course he was mostly playing against Castilla.
Hey guys, random question - where does Herrera play for you guys and do you think he's going to be a regular starter? Thanks :D
Regular starter? Absolutely!!

He plays basically at Cm position but drifts to CAM at times.
+1
CM is his best role, he said it himself, very box to box.

He is confortable at CAM as well but tends to drop deep and really get stuck in even when playing there.
I figured so lol. So he's going to in there with Mata and kagawa is gonna be pushed to the bench again?
Kagawa will be rotating with Mata

I hope Kagawa can get back his Dortmund form
+4
Thanks fellas
I don't think he is strong enough to play CM in epl
+4
he's played 2 45 minute periods as a CM and 45 minutes as CAM. with mata we dont need him at cam. i must say kagawa at cm worries me, he's not good enough there physically to shield defense and compete.

and we still dont know about where adnan will play...
adnan will play as a forward or CAM depending on the game and available team-mates.
@Kop4Ever
It's football not a wrestling match. He is 6' tall and weighs about 75 Kgs. Technically very good and seems like a pretty good tackler.
You don't need brute strength to succeed as a CM in the EPL.
+8
@kop4ever just like fellaini who's a strong player but he still can't play as a CM.

Why does everybody go about the physicallity of the premier league as if that's something players need to play well in a certain position?

Look at best players in the league most of them are of short stature. Football is more about being technically good aswell not just being physically built.
as long as he doesn't slip at the vital moment, herrera will be alright.

+15
for starters, nobody asked Kop4Ever to come in and troll our players, but whatever.

second - modric, wilshere and cabaye are good examples of recent players who weren't big but were excellent defensively. the idea that you need to be huge is just a myth, end of.
@Kop4Ever

Total nonsense, Herrera will have no issues at all playing at CM, its his position.

Look at the size of Scholes ffs, watch Herrera resist a powerful shoulder barge from Robbie Keane in the L.A Galaxy game, in fact it was Keane who ended up coming off worse in the clash, he has great tenacity on the ball, he does not get bullied anyway.
+3
Good balance, smart movement, and a good center of gravity can make up for a lot of brute strength. Iniesta and Xavi are brilliant examples of this, and they've bossed around "stronger" midfields in Europe for years.

The lads on the Liverpool forum are just still really obsessed with us, which is ironic considering they think us so much beneath them.
+8
Sun reporting...(so probably not 100% reliable)

but reported that LVG has assessed the United squad and requests another 100m from the board to build a decent squad(bringing in 5 players)


crazy money..crazy crazy money..

So am I correct in saying that 20m-30m is the new price of your new average modern day footballer?..but for world class players its now 50+million?
It's crazy to think that only 5 years ago, 25m was a decent price for a world class player.

Now like you said, they're going for 50m at the very least.

I hate to bring his transfer up again, but the David Luiz transfer really goes to show how crazy the market has become.
honestly what the hell are you talking about? you just bought sanchez for 30-35 million, is he average? there are lots of factors that determine price, such as position, years on contract, whether the club wants to sell, release clause fee, etc.

besides, 100 million is just a number, no one at the sun knows anything about what type of fund united have available to spend this summer nor how many targets van gaal will want.
+2
Tbh Barça were idiots and sold Sanchez for a fraction of what he could actually have gone for in this market sif.

No need to get that angry mate, ratboi said nothing wrong. Just trying to make conversation.
+1
@badge, if "the hell" makes you think i was angry then just ignore it, i didnt think that post was laced with anger, and that wasnt my intent. i like to think i've seen this guy enough where i get a good sense when he's trying to troll. but if i jumped the gun, my bad.

i don't know if he edited or whatever, but the intention the first time i read it was that LVG needs 5 players, only has 100 million, and the cost of avg players is 20-30 million (potentially a slight on herrera and shaw as well), so we'll be buying 5 average players. then add a question mark to make it seem like a question.

firstly, the sun have no idea how much money utd have. we sign sponsorships so regularly it's hard to keep track. woody has said we dont have a fixed budget, there's money and we are willing to spend. besides, you don't pay all of the transfer fee upfront unless it's activating a release clause. most fees are paid in 2-3+ installments.

secondly, if 5 are coming in, probably more players are going out. those sales will generate money, on top of the saved wages from a few players leaving or giggsy retiring.

finally, lvg has an eye for talent, the list of talented players he has bought or coached or promoted is very long. it's been mentioned that we don't have a fixed budget, so the challenge is getting the right players in, not really figuring how to pay for them. the last thing we should worry about is the quality of the players coming in, seeing how meticulous and thorough lvg is, he will get exactly what he wants in the window, he doesn't seem like one to settle for second rate. if some players are unavailable, so be it, but tying a rubbish player to a 4-6 year deal wont happen just for the sake of having new faces.
+1
No worries at all mate, I overreacted as well. He may have edited his comment too, I don't know.

You're 100% right. The Sun is one of the worst sources out there. Despite not qualifying for the CL, we're doing remarkably well financially and LVG has more than enough support from the board to strengthen this side properly.
And besides maybe one CM/CB, I really don't see him splashing a lot of money on other players. Like you said, he has an eye for talent and has some excellent scouting networks and I think he might bring in a few young, promising players.


Either way, we're doing really well and once we strengthen those few spots where we desperately need depth, I think we'll be back up there in no time.
