With Falcao out again I hope Van Persie finds his scoring boots at the emptyhad. He hasn't been great this season, hardly influenced games and has wasted plenty of chances.
Our last win against city was when he scored that injury time winner.
I'm glad Rooney is back, I thought Mata would prove a point when he was suspended but he hasn't.
Mata I think is as good as gone by next year. It's not that he's a bad player it's just that the systems he plays in may not suit him. He did pretty well at Chelsea for the years he's been there but he wouldn't have fit into a Mou side the way he sets up. Tough break.
I thought Mata did well till we started playing 3 strikers. When we played Rooney, Mata, and Di Maria together, it was good to watch. They all need each other to bring the best out in the diamond formation
For city game, Herrera or Fellaini? I would pick Fellaini so he can mark Toure
Fellaini with the form he is in
Felli
need that physicality in the middle to combat Toure/Fernando/Dinho.
haha wtf Deffyduck? Fernandinho is two people now?
fernando and fernandinho are two separate people, that's what he means.
+4
Herrera MUST play. He is a great tackler and contributes a lot to our offense as well. If we must play Fellaini then we should play Di Maria as a CAM.

----Rooney------RVP
----------Di Maria
---Herrera------Fellaini
------------Blind
Shaw-Rojo-Smalling-Rafael
-------------De Gea
+2
I like that formation but i dont think LVG will play DM7 as CAM. Also Mata played well vs Chelsea.
based on the press conf you can be certain fellaini will play, rooney will start.
+1
Mata wont start
Both Fellaini and herrera should start, ToruYunga's formation is the way to go
We will play 4141.
Fellaini
SIF. Too many Ferns for Ldinho :).
Bummer that Falcao is out.. here is my lineup...

4-1-4-1...

.........De Gea..........
Rafa..Smalling..Rojo....Shaw..
..........Blind...............
Valencia..Rooney..Felly...Maria..
.......... RVP................

Subs to come in: Carrick, Herrera, Mata/Januzaj

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has been ruled out of the clash with neighbours Manchester City on Sunday, but Wayne Rooney is fit for the derby showdown at the Etihad.

https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/premier-league-falcao-sidelined-manchester-derby-151121967--sow.html
Oh dammit Falcao :(

At this rate I don't know if buying him at the end of the season would be a good idea to be honest. He really hasn't done much at all so far and we're 9 games in
wtf, when will Falcao get back in form by this rate?
he's been injured for 7 days mate relax lol. the knock came last friday, or so we are told. doesn't seem that serious. with rooney back i cant imagine lVG is in a rush to get falcao back in the side anyways.

wayne was apparently never injured. just gossip made up by the press. player limping does not necessarily mean player injured. if he had some sort of leg injury he surely would have had a protective boot, a cast, some crutches or maybe even a wheelchair. you dont just let someone walk on an injured leg injury without support, otherwise the injury will get worse or take longer to heal.
+2
I know SIF, but since we got Falcao, we have been safe and haven't taken any risk with him. He didn't start vs QPR or WBA, and he hasn't even played a single 90 min game since we got him.
And despite this, he still he managed to injure himself right in time to miss our two of the biggest games of our season.

I love him, but with the amount of money we're paying him, I don't think it's unfair to ask for a player who we can use. We signed him two months ago, and I still feel like we have to be super careful with him.
I'm just saying, IF things stay this way (which most likely won't be the case) I don't know if buying him would be a good idea.
Wasn't that the whole point of the loan anyway? So we could test him out first before we got him permanently
was responding to shiwa, maybe i misread, but i thought he was complaining about falcao's fitness instead of form.

no i agree, the deal makes no sense, but then again if it doesnt stop us from pursuing other targets and lvg wants him, then it cant hurt to have him around. truth is rvp and rooney getting on in age, maybe having falcao is not a bad thing and i cant think of any striker out there better and available.
Please beat City guys!
ok
Ah alright, because you asked nicely
we will but please lose to QPR in return :D

If you can't beat em, Draw them:)

man utd has agreed falcao permanent move for 56 mln euros??

http://www.goal.com/en/news/11/transfer-zone/2014/10/30/5622361/man-united-agree-permanent-56-million-falcao-deal?ICID=HP_BN_2
...w."goal".com...
+1
i think its a bad idea to accept this deal at this point. should wait till the end of the loan deal to see his overall performance. So far he has yet to prove himself.
If true 305k a week is enormous. That is 5k more than Rooney. I wonder if Falcao will get the same abuse Wayne got for holding the club ransom... Radamel better come good.
i'm sure it sounds harsh but i'm not sure he would be worth the fee even he scores 25 goals this season given his age. i think we will eventually go 4-3-3 so i'm hoping we use that money to buy the winger CMs and CBs for that system.

the only reason i entertain the thought of buying falcao is rvp is even older and he will need replacing soon. not many strikers in their class at the moment, and i dont think any are available.
SkySports and BBC confirm that David Silva will be out for 3-4 weeks and will miss the United game.
Big blow for City. Silva is in my opinion their most important attacking player. They just don't look the same without him..
+1
but nasri is back, which is a boost
Aguero is their most important attacking player. Then Silva. Still form goes out the window in big derby games. We cannot take it easy for one second.
my preferred line up vs city:

DDG
rafael-smalling-rojo-shaw
herrera-fellaini-blind
rooney-di maria
rvp/falcao
Inverted full backs, inverted wide central midfielders, inverted attacking mids, inverted strikers. I like it.
+4
@footballdoc

lol didnt notice that until you told me... fixed already, thx

but yea that was probably the most optimal line up against city
Apparently Rooney trained fully on Wed and is fit to start for the derby (Dailyfail). Still no update on Falcao though
+2
i use FPL as my most updated and trustworthy source of injury updates since it's official app from BPL

rooney and falcao as of now are still 75% chance of playing...
i was one of those people harsh on mata earlier in the season saying he shouldn't get in ahead of rooney. but he did well vs chelsea, i think it was his best all around performance as a cam this season. it wasnt a dazzling performance but at least he was involved in a lot of the play in the finall third. in our own half he won some freekicks with skill, but he also created a few decent shooting chances and didnt give the ball away a lot or go missing like he sometimes does in big games. his shooting has been woeful though besides tap ins. seems like every chance he gets at the edge of the box or inside the box goes high and wide. i realize a lot of those shots are on his weaker right foot but he's got to start making better contact if he wants to take a shot.

that said i think rooney should and will slot right back into the starting XI. have to say rvp looked better (despite wasting chances, he was livelier, getting into good positions, holding the ball up well and bringing the midfielders up the pitch) and you have to wonder if it is because he didn't have to share the front line with another striker..? hope not! i hope he's just finally turning a corner and will play with the class and confidence he normally plays with.
Have some read on de gea..

Thanks for the share,Great read!
To me De Gea is the best keeper in the world...even this young. Courtois is probably #2 (at least for now) for me simply because he's not fully tested at Chelsea since they have a great defensive setup with maximum protection. Courtois though I think have a higher ceiling.

I've seen some De Gea saves not even having 3 goalkeepers in one goal at the same time could stop those.
Neuer is the best in the world imo. The guy is an absolute monster.

Big Dave and Courtois aren't far behind at all though
+5
I agree with Badge, apart from important saves, Neuer have to run up field and clear countless long balls, Bayern's defense line is often too high exposing their team in danger. Bayern and Germany national team can attack all they want because of him, that's how important he is.
Spot-on Badge..Neuer is by far the best and no. 1 without a doubt.
@Godspeedysick

Courtois not tested? I'm sure Messi and Ronaldo and all those other La Liga world class players tested him plenty.
