Just watched the game, I know it was just a pre-season game and it wasn't the best opposition but that's a great start.

Herrera is pure silk, was at the heart of everything the team did well. Going to be a great player for us, will really reinvent our midfield.

If we can get Vidal next to him with Mata playing just ahead of them then we've got a sick midfield.

Interesting that LVG appears committed to the 3-4-3 going off his post match comments, we've definitely got the players to make it work and it would get the best out of our big attacking trio of Mata, Rooney and RVP, the rumoured interest in Cuardrado would make perfect sense as well, he likes to play as a right wing back so could slot into the right side perfectly with Shaw on the left.

We will need a couple more CB's though and i would like to see a promotion for M.Keane in that department, i think he is class.
Agree,M keane should get more chance.btw how about shaw performance?which player will be lvg first eleven based on today performance??
MUFC do you have a link for the full match?

EDIT Found one.
with valencia and rafa, i would say cuadrado is overkill though for right wing back when we have other areas with greater need as you said (CB, CM)

also it's difficult for me to see how adnan could start in that system.

but it certainly suits our cam and strikers

also is vidal really the best type player to have in this system next to someone like herrera? i would think you need a more defensive than b-2-b or offensive player.
Adnan Fellaini:

(also: awkward Courtois and others)
BTW: nice 7-0 win! Dayum!

Liverpool lost two Preseason games,I see their fans saying "Its just an friendly preseason game and its all about Fitness"

Then,I remembered our fan crying/complaining during last year's Preseason.If i'm not wrong we said the same thing LOL

and then,as you all know,we happened to have our worst ever PL season :P

Well Man City lost two preseason games last season ... we aren't about to tear into a team of reserve youngsters/fringe players just because they couldn't cope with Roma. I mean of course anyone would want the team to win, but we have to remain optimistic and take in the positives.

As we have seen, a good preseason doesn't necessarily ensure a good season, however neither does a bad preseason equate to a bad season. Anyways I hope we have a good contest next season as everybody knows that Van Gaal plays a good brand of attacking football.
Depends really, we started our pre-season 12 months ago with a loss to the Singha all stars and that said it all really...
I think big club's should only worry about pre-season losses when they are happening in the last few pre-season games..not this early

I agree PeterzeGooner, if we played our first team squad in the latter stages of preaseason against decent sides and struggle then I might begin to be skeptical, but at this stage I'm quite satisfied with what I've seen so far. We might have lost some games, but our new signings have shown they are more than competent and dedicated to work hard to obtain a first team spot. Furthermore, Rodgers has shown he knows exactly where we need reinforcement and has acted swiftly to accommodate the team as best he can.
You know if anything we should all be hoping liverpool win these pre-season games rather than losing..you see if they lose they get a chance to identify and fix the problems..if they win and start losing in the epl that's when they are in trouble..preparation time is over..and they will drop many points till they fix the problem
Will the 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 work in the premier league?
I remember mancini trying these formations during the season we won back the title and it didn't work.
I think 3 at the back formations work well in slower league like the Seria A.
depends on the players
The teams that used 532/352 formation in the World Cup had no problem beating Spain,Italy,Brazil,Chile,Uruguay,and Croatia.
What a game. 7 goals... couldn't have even dreamed that. Lost my voice as well. I know it was just a friendly but United start the new era in style! :D Nice to see the likes of Blackett and Reece James doing well. Surprised Will Keane didn't start. Would have liked to see Chicha in action but I guess he wasn't ready.
MOTM = Ander Herrera.

Oh yea, there was a pitch invader at the end of the game it was hilarious, he got tackled by 2 security guards.
When lvg said lack of balance ist that mean we going to offload some no10?
We dont have to if we are talking about Rooney. The guy was forward to start with and I dont see how Cavani > Rooney ? The only thing though I understand, if Rooney would need to be more agro and actually get full ST-CF position, there wont be no more this cool long passes, which I will miss, but just a bit, as Rooney was all about scoring goals, not about going back and making passes and play for midfield where we lacked clearly last season.

Mata - Kagawa on other hand... that is debatable, we need clear starting 11, and guess what we never had that!

MU was not only known as a strategy adept team with strong mentality in Ferguson era, we were Also very well known for having injury pron players as of late seasons... i doubt this would be only reason for Fergie to change players all the time the way strategy suits him, however indeed I see LvG actually formulating something that we would call starting 11, and maybe that would make things clear for us fans and more importantly players as well, as nearly every player lacked playing time pretty much (with exceptions) for the past 4-5 seasons.

i remember someone here laughing when i said Herriera is very similar to fabregas but with better defensive attributes
+2
At this moment of time we can't tell yet once we face much better opposition in the league we'll find out.
he doesnt remind me of fabregas. he looks very box to box, i think fabregas is usually a forward/cam for barca. not really sure how his cm game is at the moment.
Maybe part of the problem with our wingers has been the supply. Scholes used to feed them perfect balls. We haven't had that. Not saying we should keep young but if he carries on like this then lvg will want him.
Just loved the space and time our wingbacks got with this new formation. It's kinda scary. If only we could improve our crossing from last season.
Here it is guys..
