Its a bit early but I thought fuck it, its Friday.

Didnt get much out of LVGs prezzies as he was too busy denying getting irritated by journos who were asking him about getting irritated, oh, and he loves Giggs, he just doesn't show it. And Evans is innocent obviously.

So, with Carrick likely back, what do we want to see? I'm going for :-

TV. Smalling. Rojo. Shaw

Blind. Carrick

Young. Herrera. Jacuzzi

Rooney

Subs ADM Falcao Fro etc etc

Never happen but that team looks decent, plenty of protection as well as a bit of guile.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Di Maria in for Januzaj, Mata in for Carrick, and I'm good with that.

Arsenal will attack us, unlike the other teams who sit back attempting to open space in the final third for our players.
This means more space for our attack - Di Maria can exploit this. He's got good pace too to attack on the counter so he ought to play.

Arsenal don't like physical players.
Fellaini must play.

Is Shaw fit, because Rojo has been playing at left back.

A bit risky but I think I would go
DDG
AV McNair Rojo Young/Shaw
Blind Herrera
Di Maria Rooney Jacuzzi/Young
Falcao

I'm not entirely sure who's fit at the back, but we should definitely go with a line-up like this:

..........................DDG
Valencia..Smalling....Rojo...Shaw
................Carrick......Herrera
Di Maria..........Fellaini........Young
........................Rooney

Arsenal at Old Trafford is just the sort of game to get a player like Di Maria firing again: they'll faff and usher him goalwards. Personally I'd rather have Blind in midfield instead of Fellaini, or Mata even, but I'm sure LVG with go with the afro, and he'll add a bit of rough to the smooth, which is usually enough to make Arsenal shit themselves these days. Carrick, Young, Roo pick themselves.

3-1 to Louis' Lepers.

I think it's quite clear by now that Mata's time is up at this club.
I don't know if you rate him but Van Gaal doesn't seem to have a place for him in the team; even off the bench.
He's just there to make up the numbers on the bench.

To be fair, Young has to play. One of the better and more consistent performers under Van Gaal.

Interesting thought about Carrick, but I really think we should be looking to bring McNair through. He's only going to learn more by actually getting games under his belt.

I would not leave Blind out of the mix, personally.
