I'd love to see United play a 3232. Think we've got the players for it too.

I think we'll see your 4231 when the big games come. The solidity of a Matic-Herrera partnership must be tempting for Mourinho. He tried it early last season against Liverpool and Chelsea with Fellaini instead of Matic.

Martial and rashford are pretty bad on the right anyway. Mata is crap.
We need a good right winger.

I dont think Mata's crap. I dont think we use him correctly. Hes pretty ineffectual against most fresh midfields. I think he'd have much better impact fizzing around in the last 20 minutes with his vision and craft when the oppo's are blowing out their arses. Hes not a starter for me.
Better than starting Fellaini

I think it's clear now that we were right why we didn't go all out gung-ho attack last season- Jose clearly didn't trust our defense/ DMF...Carrick was finished (squad member) and he needed to work with our CB's and LB...
Now he's got Matic there's more of a strong base to attack from and can unleash the attackers more...
Still a few positions needed to strengthen but Jose showing he knows how to build a winning team

Matic has made us more solid but I still think our biggest weakness is the defence. We need to get it sorted before we play a good team because in the last 2 games we've done some proper daft fucking things which better teams will punish us for. We're a tall team but we don't half gift a lot of headers to the opposition. And Pogba still can't defend corners.

But this easy run of games will give em a chance to get to know each others game and get some confidence before we play Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea.

Prejudice again. Fellaini has been more effective for us than Mata.
Perhaps Mata isn't being used right etc but Fellaini has been the more valuable player for us in the last 3 seasons.

Even you gotta admit we should be moving on from starting Fellaini- it's not Man Utd

So why doesn't saint Jose, Snoop? He consistently plays Fellaini up front. Why?

You've bottled answering the question for a year because it proves you wrong Bman right

I've made it clear plenty of times that the one problem I had with jose was playing Fellaini...
I can see why he played him but I didn't agree...

But now he's got a DMF he wanted Fellaini won't be a starter. Will fill in a few times etc but not being a first team starter works for me

Sids got a point though. Easy games put to bed convincingly. Something Van Dross' £300 million couldnt manage. So Sids right (yes! Even Sid) nails something for once.
15 draws against dross - aye easy games put to bed, just as you predicted
