what a weird transfer window... im so excited for next game but at the same time so sad to see Kagawa, Chicharito and Welback gone, especially Welbeck. He will always have a place in our hearts (not when he score against us of course lol)
United sign top foreign attackers: THEYVE SOLD THEIR SOUL!

United stick with young English defenders: THEY NEED A NEW DEFENCE!
+3
haha spot on.

Wilson 4th choice striker now tough. Very very happy with that. Now to sign him up to a 15 year deal! :)
All united do in rivals n haters eye was wrong..

United sign maria n falcao:they making panic buy once again..
Ha ha that is a superb one Subhakar. I think I will post this in other Manchester United forums. Dont sue me.
Been getting a bit of stick about our spending from some Liverpool fans I know. Always enjoy the banter though. Both teams have bought some quality but I think when you lay it all out it tells a more insightful story.

Lallana, Lovren, Markovic, Balotelli, Moreno, Origi, Can, Lambert and Manquillo for £133.6m

in comparison to:

Di Maria, Shaw, Herrera, Rojo, Blind, Falcao for £157.7m

Equates to £24.1m more in gross outlay and £76.8m more in net outlay (mainly due to the Suarez fee).

Prior to this window we have an average net spend of about £16m a season since 2005 (when the Glazers took over). We have been due a splurge and it finally happened.

The money the club earns is rightfully being spent on the team. I don't see how people can have such a big problem with that. It has come from our own pockets and not some sugar daddy. Something that should be acknowledged and even appreciated in the modern Billionaires playground game.

your last paragraph is the key point
I'm still laughing at this that badge posted yesterday! Needed a repost just in case anyone missed it.

I cant believe Ronaldo Koeman actually has a verified twitter account, lmao, what a legend.

Imagine Van Gaal, Mourinho and Wenger on twitter? hahahahahaha
I was just looking at the saints tranfer ins and outs , coz of their exodus. And Koeman has done a brilliant job as of now.
Alderweield for Lovren.
Tadic for Lallana
Bertrand for Shaw
Pelle for Lambert.
Shane long for injured Rodriguez.
Fraser forster & Taider in as well.
Kept Shnedierlien.

I think saints are in good hands.So Glad it looks like they won't go down.

Southampton had a good window considering how it started.

@Karthik - "The midfielder joined the Saints for the 2014/15 campaign but, having failed to live up to the high levels of commitment expected of Southampton players, that arrangement has been cut short by the club.”

Must have been dicking about. Can only think he didn't show up to training or show any sort of interest in the club.
Taider loan deal is canceled,don't know why!
Did you see the picture he posted after all those sales? Empty training pitch with a caption first day of training.
If we keep the 3-5-2:
------Jones - Evans - Rojo
--Rafa - Herrera - ADM - Shaw
-----------Rooney
---------Falcao - RVP
Look weak in defense with Evans there, no place for Januzaj, Mata or Blind

Same trio but switch to 4 at the back:
---Rafa - Jones - Rojo - Shaw
-----Herrera - Blind - ADM
-----------Rooney
---------Falcao - RVP
Still no Januzaj and Mata, but look more balance. Question mark over RVP fitness, which suggests rotation with the other 2 + Rooney

Same back 4 but with natural width:
---Rafa - Jones - Rojo - Shaw
--------Herrera - Blind
--Januzaj ----------- ADM
-------- Falcao - Rooney
Rooney can also drop to midfield instead of Blind and fill RVP in up top. With age Rooney will eventually drop to midfield anyway.

Or 4-3-3, same personel as the last one, only slight difference in positioning:
---Rafa - Jones - Rojo - Shaw
----Herrera - Blind - ADM
-- Januzaj - Falcao - Rooney

The big ccl is that Mata will be the real loser with the new personel. With Januzaj close second. And RVP third.

With the addition of Strootman (hopefully in Jan) instead of Blind, the midfield/attack will have more balance.

I think the strategy this year will have to be outscoring your opponents because which ever way you put it that defense is weak.


@SiF and MUFC I agree with you it's a shame but can only hope for LVG to change his mind about the formation, which I think might come only if RVP has his op or if by Dec-Jan we still struggle.
That's said Januzaj used to play up front for the reserves and even some games under Moyes. So it's not all bleak for him even in the current formation as back up for RVP.
My biggest concern in all this is where adnan fits in. He isn't a striker nor cm nor wingback and imo it's even a stretch to call him a CAM at this point in his development. Hate to see him stall in development
+1
I agree SiF.

Its the main reason I have called for a change in formation to better accommodate him, he should be a starter, he carried us at points last season when the club was in a really shitty place.
I feel like our new signings give us possibility to play a lot of formations out there, even 4-4-2 looks very strong to me when everyone is fit:

---------DDG-----------
Rafa--Jones--Rojo---Shaw
-------Blind/Herrera----
AJ/Mata---------------DM
-----Mata/Rooney/AJ-----
-Falcao/RVP--Rooney/RVP-

We obviously can do we a monster CB and natural CDM or CM, but this squad looks solid.
Still care about mata.he was world class,hope lvg also will consider him in his philosphy..

Still a couple of holes in the squad but damn... This has been a good window.

Rojo pissing Chevy off by holding up the back of the top haha

Tom Cleverley may be going on loan.

If this can make some like me to forget about Welbeck:

"Welbeck is another one who has frequently tempted us to believe he can shine consistently at the highest level but never quite done enough to remove all the lingering question marks. Welbeck, on form, can be a formidable opponent, with that long stride, upper-body strength and direct running. Yet his defining moment last season came in the Champions League quarter-final at home to Bayern Munich when he ran through the opposition defence to face Manuel Neuer.

What is not widely known about that night is that United’s scouting staff had noticed a possible flaw in Neuer in these positions, whereby he would often leave the ground as he spread his body, almost Schmeichel-esque.

Welbeck had been instructed that if this moment arrived he should keep the ball low. He did not listen. He tried a chip and got it horribly wrong. Neuer made the save and United, ultimately, went out.

It was three weeks later when it came out Welbeck had asked to leave, frustrated by his inability to win a regular starting place and not sure when it would ever change."

From the Guardian.

Still sad to see him go. But I guess the club lost patience with him.

Blind got Nani shirt. The end for Nani surely.
