Re: Do you want to give LVG this summer or have we seen enou

I think Ancelotti would be the best overall choice. I think that talk of him not giving young players a chance is a bit unfair, especially when you consider he was at Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid, all of which are governed with a view to immediate short term success to the obvious detriment of youth...

Re: mourinho aint much cop then

Mourinho, undoubtedly one of the most overrated managers of all time. I am quite enjoying his downfall at Chelsea, although not as much as the Chelsea players will enjoy it when he gets sacked. In the past I did consider him to be a strong candidate for the United job, but his preferred style of pla...

Re: Vs Liverpool

Let's hope Ancelotti or Giggs are getting their plans organised for next season. Blimey even Ed Woodward would be able to see we're playing shit

Re: Vs Liverpool

What the hell... Seriously one of the worst halves of football I've seen, including junior level. Both teams just so slow and boring. Van Gaal has some serious explaining to do. At the very least we need to replace Fellaini with Martial at half time

Re: Vs Everton

It may not happen soon, but pushing RVP aside, then building the attack around Falcao and Januzaj would hugely improve the team

Re: vs Leicester

I like the fact that Blackett has kept his place, the youngsters will be given a place in the team if they are good enough for the club in their position, something the likes of Cleverley was not. Januzaj, for example, will be breaking into the team and Van Gaal won't be afraid to drop the big names...

Re: vs Leicester

I'll be happy to be proved wrong but I don't think all 3 of Rooney, RVP and Falcao can be effective in the same team. I would drop Van Persie to bring in Falcao, then have one of Mata or Januzaj in there. We need a better balance with enough creative players to make chances for Falcao - all we need ...

Re: vs QPR

Di Maria has been excellent, and this might have repercussions in Madrid... Real fans are NOT happy they sold him, and there has been grumblings Perez should resign... wait till word gets back that he was good today... Perez has really outdone himself by allowing two thirds of a European Cup winnin...

Re: vs QPR

Surely LVG can't go back to 3-5-2 after this... 4-3-3 / 4-4-2 is far better suited to the Premier League, where in the vast majority of our matches we have to try to break down a defensively minded team. Crucially the players seem more comfortable in this system and seem to know what they're suppose...

Re: vs QPR

He's only played 40 mins but already you can see Blind's position play and intelligence is ten times that of Fletcher Blind has gone under the radar a bit but as a European player, you can see his tactical understanding being better than the British players. He's not a quick player, but like Xabi A...
