"There seems to be a lot of people who have written us off because of Sundays result but I don't see it that way. When I look around our dressing room and see the quality we have and the managers unbelievable attention to detail I have no doubts this team will be successful."

LMFAO
I was considering selling Ronaldo to get Messi for DreamFooty but decided against it. CR then goes on to score 4 today.

Whew.

I sold him and bought Muller and Suarez yesterday :(
yeah ronnie is my star striker (and bale star mid). lots of points from last two games. i think ronaldo gets 62 points for that performance. that's 10% of my points (so far) just from one game! not bad.

now if messi gets a 5-goal game tomorrow, we will look silly lol.
Yeah same, the Bale-Ronaldo star mid/striker combo has been really fruitful so far!

I really suck though, all this time I thought I had Bonucci as my star Def but I forgot to save my team after doing so and it didn't end up counting, so I missed out on 3 consecutive clean sheets and wins from this (42 points).
Facepalm.
First year doing this and its not going so well! Haha! My best pick up was Icardi though especially after last week!
@Bazinga. why would you sell Ronaldo mate? :(
The only reason to sell him is if you're replacing him with Messi. His and Messi's numbers destroy every other player's numbers.
whats happened to everton? they couldn't win a game in pre-season and have only won once this season and are losing to swansea now in the cup 3-0. they can defend anymore it seems.

pressure's building on martinez.. moyes must have some voodoo doll for martinez and van gaal :P
Still early days but with the addition of European football this might end up being a tough season for them.

Only a true Manchester United warrior puts his head on the line like that against the dippers!

He's a legend, its saddening how we took players like him for granted in the last 3-4 years of Fergies reign, players like him were often the source of a lot of criticism such was the expectation back then... How we could use him now eh...
Possibly the most underrated player and certainly the unsung hero of our massive success between 2006-2011. Love the man, legend in my eyes, all for a measely £4m.
Happiest day of Wengers career when 3 lung park left us lol.
+1
the boy makes most our current players look so lazy
Our defenders could really use one of his lungs right now..
Not sure if it's had a mention after our last result but Herrera now has 2 in 3 games (plus his debut was cut short due to injury).

We knew he could pose an attacking threat but he looks dangerous in and around the opposition box. Considering he only got 11 goals in 128 games for Bilbao that is an impressive return so far.

Hopefully more to come from him. We have missed a driving force from midfield for such a long time and he appears to be a gem. He says all the right things off the pitch too.
+1
He's been great going forward! Don't see too many backpasses from him, he always seems to want to get the ball forward as much as possible.

I liked his recent interview where he talks about how much he respects Scholesy and how he wants to become like him one day.
lol with guys like rvp mata falcao rooney and di maria around you, you're going to get some space to attack teams. he was unmarked in and around the box for both goals and he's going to be a big threat if teams leave him free to attack. he's an intelligent player and i think he will often find these spaces to attack and has the quality to make use of the space.
^^ SIF That's a plus of having a squad like ours, it's either they leave him space and mark the world class attackers on our team, or they leave one of our strikers un marked and mark Herrera. Either way is fine with me! They wont man mark the entire team haha
He sure does. Last season Ander worked on his late runs and arrival into the box and he's added that to his game. I think so far this season we're seeing him improve even more in that aspect.

Having quality players up front who are going to drag markers with them like they do, will only make it easier for him, so that's a plus.
Rafael's team-mate tales

In our exclusive interview on team-mates, United right-back Rafael talks about playing poker with Darren Fletcher and socialising as a squad...

Who is your best friend at the club?
I have some big friends here. I would always say Antonio [Valencia] is the closest one but Anderson and Fletch are big friends of mine too. I have a lot of friends in the squad.

Do you have a room-mate at the hotels?
No, we do not share rooms together but when we're sitting in the lounge at the hotels, we often have conversations. It's always nice to do that with your team-mates.

Do you discuss tactics and other footballing matters away from the club?
When we are away, we do some other stuff, but of course we often talk about football. Sometimes, I go to Fletch's house and we play poker and talk about football all night! But of course we do talk about other things as well.

Do you watch any other Premier League games together?
Yes, we do that when we are away. When we're at home, we often play video games but we stop to watch some matches together.

Do you socialise with the other players?
Yes, we had dinner together in Manchester last week. It is always nice when everyone is together. It allows us to talk properly as a team.

Was it Wayne Rooney's idea to get everybody together as a squad?
Yes, I think it was Wayne’s idea. He spoke to everyone about it. Now, he’s the captain here, he's doing everything like that.
+3
great interview!

these questions actually sound stupid if you ask to your friends, seeing how basic some of the questions are.... but when asked to footballers it feels different....
Honestly, Rooney is looking more and more like a good captain. His initiatives with both the United and the England squad have been very positive imo.
His performances aren't like of a captain though. Also I've always preferred a captain who is not an attacker. I like knowing that the captain has the view of the action even when the team is going forward and not just defending, so for that reason I like if the GK, or a defender or a CDM is the captain. That way they can see if something needs tinkered on the field or if some player needs to be told to do something slightly different.
I have a feeling you guys would love seeing what an Old Fashioned Fergie Hairdyer would look like. I kinda miss Fergie :(

I don't know if this has come up until now but speaking purely defensively, Rafael is a liability for us. (I acknowledge that going forward he is awesome)

Here is why:

1) lacks height hence no good at defending free kicks and corners which is a must for any defender
2) Is too rash in his defending concedes many fouls
3) He has played more than 150 united games hence he is experienced and that should show but it doesn't
4) He is far too eager to join the attack (which is not bad but his first duty should be to defend and pick his moments)

Having said that, I would take him over valencia any day.

My concern is he might be sold or at best become a squad player and he will only have himself to blame for that. This would be sad because he loves united and is passionate but error and injury prone defender.
+1
Rafael is class. He had Bale and Ribéry in his pocket when he faced them. He's pretty solid defensively I think. He has one or two bad moments but most of the time he's good!

Height isn't that much of an issue of fullbacks imo. Some of the best ones are short, like Lahm, Roberto Carlos, Evra, Cole etc.

He's a good player and i don't see him being sold any time soon. He was the best or second best RB in the league in the 2012-13. Last year was an awful year for everyone, I think he'll have a great season this year!
Some of the commentators were saying he was rash on the foul that led to the penalty and I think that's bullshit as he barely even touched the guy.
+7
rafael is an A+ defender when he concentrates and isn't being fouled every few minutes by a winger who clearly has the ref in his payroll.
Rafael is ok, but with point 2 I must agree. We usually always have problems with him in big games, on in games where we must win and stay solid, not to be overconfident like with Leicester.
Class defender, just needs to learn to keep his cool and not make unnecessary fouls. I can recall a few big games he has done this e.g Bayern.
sorry but all of your 4 reasons are rubbish...

1) height is not a must for LB/RB, even for CB... ex: cannavaro

2) all i know is he's growing more and more mature every season... after being pushed down by vardy, he immediately came back up... also he could have reacted stupidly when the ref gave the penalty, but he didnt...

3) individually he is experienced... he was just paired with 3 inexperience/ new defenders... how many times has this combination of 4 defenders played together?

4) nothing wrong with it... he did well defensively... all of our 5 conceded goals were from the left flank/ center....


he could be one of the world's best RB in the near future... he's like Marcelo of RB...
+2
He's not consistent defensively but he has shown when fit he can wreak havoc on the league.

He is short but most fullbacks are chasing speedy wingers and need to be quick and agile. Not many quick agile and tall rbs. Best rbs in the world are not tall so that's not a key point. He should be competing a lot more for headers though. Even if you lose you put the other defender off.

We are much better going forward with him than without him.. He needs a run of games before you start slagging him off. The penalty wasn't his fault but he could have done a better job against ulloah but he was all the way on the left side of defense so you must ask where were the cdm and 2 cbs
@Theatreofdreams sorry I disagree that all 4 points are rubbish because they are not.

Anyways, the point I was trying to make here was that I like him as a player but if he ends up on the bench or being a squad player I won't be surprised because defensively he is not rock solid and he is part of the defensive problem we have.

Leicester players pointed out in their post game interview that they planned to exploit the spaces left behind by our full backs so its something opposition is targeting us with and we can't ignore that.
@james4u

haha did i offend you, my apology... i should have used less offensive words, but i mean all your 4 points can be easily countered, cheers
+1
I remember that Liverpool game where Rafael outjumped Carroll like 3 times!
@Theatreofdreams we are cool bro:) Cheers!!
Just watched the game again. Yes we should have kept the ball and defended better after 3-1 but I'm sorry, Clattenburg really did f**k us. Not only the pen and De Laet not getting a red, but a succession of awful decisions allowed leicester to just foul our players to get the ball and spring an attack, can't fault their effort though. It was utterly pathetic from the referee. I should get over it but I watched the game again and cant help but bring it up.

We were terribly unlucky and were in control until that terrible penalty decision. Imo if that didn't happen, we would have kept the ball and probably kill the game off. Notice right after the 3-3, we had possession again for the next 15mins. The fourth goal however capitulated what went wrong for us, losing the ball cheaply, and not organising ourselves defensively. Blackett and Smalling out of position and letting that dirty c**t Vardy score the fourth, who bdw nudged blackett to get on the end of a long ball, which made blackett get sent off, and the eventual fifth goal (a valuble lesson for Blackett there just to keep his head even if hes been f****d over). We can keep possession but we need to man up and not get overturn too easily. Show the opposition (Leicester and the ref lawl) youre not taking any s**t.

I understand LVG's subs tbh, Di Maria defensively is sometimes a liability but I would have liked to see Shaw play for more control.

Smalling needs to be more decisive on the ball, rojo needs to stop making silly mistakes, de gea really needs to show more competence but all these players are young and still learning so it's ok imo. RVP needs to stop sideway passing and make the quick pass to keep the attack flowing when hes not the one finishing the chance. Mata over Rooney in cam position anyday, it fits much better.

We got robbed but this game is a valuable lesson, teaching us that you need to control the game no matter what the pressure. Stand up and be men. As a team, we didn’t show that and we need to show that against West Ham this week.
+4
Thats the only way the home team came back in the game. We were controlling after we scored the 3rd goal and I don't remember leicester having a clear cut chance until that penalty
+3
Guys. Common. Get over Clattenburg and his antics.
United should not have lost the lead, let alone LOSING 5-3.

This is just sad. I am actually sick of people giving all the stick to the ref. Yes he made terrible calls, but a team like United with so much quality on the pitch should not go down like that.
Fuking disgusting.
+2
I mentioned how we let outselves down as a well as poor refereeing. Im over it, just had to get it off my chest becaude it really was that bad.
