Hello, I am a 19 year old student who is currently studying psychology.
I am a football fanatic. I am a life long manchester united fan who has lived in manchester for 10 years.I buy a season ticket whenever I believe an interesting season is coming up (for example this season).
I was born in sweden but I find the swedish league so boring.No good atmosphere,no passion and plenty of 0-0 games. All of my friends are manchester city fans(chose the wrong side haha).I joined bleacher report because of the great writers for example the likes of Sam Tighe,Terry Carroll and Max Towle. I love the premier league for 2 reasons:
1.The passion of the fans for example i was at the real madrid game(we lost due to controversial terms) and it was some unreal!!! They sang their hearts out! My friend lost his voice because he screamed so loud and sang for 90 minutes.PASSION!!!
2.If you look at Bundesliga,la liga and serie A you see that every single one of them is either one sided or two sided if you disagree(In la liga there is Real Madrid and Barcelona,in Bundesliga there is Dortmund and Bayern Munchen, in Serie A there is Juventus). but the premier league is different anything can happen for example last week cardiff dominated manchester city. A newcomer beat the crap out of them(by newcomer I mean that cardiff is a newcomer in the premier league so no offense city fans). There is also 5 teams who can challenge for the title Manchester United,Chelsea,City,Arsenal,Tottenham. ENTERTAINMENT!!!
I know a lot of you are tired of seeing this but GGMU!!!!
Yeah I feel the same way. Evans has easily been our best CB this season. He's first team now surely?
Hopefully we can make it 4 clean sheets in a row this Saturday! West Ham look confident atm though.
Agreed. All those players you've mentioned have stepped their game up. Valencia was never deadwood in my opinion.
When a lot of people were criticising Valencia in the past few months I thought he'd pull through because he has all the attributes to be a great R winger. And he's slowly proving that. Moyes deserves credit for utilising that well. For example, the Villa game he destroyed Luna. Moyes knew that Luna isn't the best fullback and that's the reason why we won so effectively. There were all these calls about Valencia being one dimensional and yet he moved central and drifted in that game if you remember?
Also, having a quick RB in Rafael behind him offers his more options. At Spurs, Valencia was stopped because Sandro and Dembele teamed up on him. Smalling was RB and he couldn't keep up with Valencia. Now Rafael gives him options if this happens. This is why 50% of our attacks came down the right side at Villa.
Interestingly, Moyes has always favoured one side of the pitch. At Everton, he liked to use Pienaar and Baines on the left a lot more, and now he's doing that with Rafael and Valencia. It's working well at the moment, and hopefully he'll win more of the fans over.
What do you think about Valencia? Am I being too kind?
Yeah I saw that bebe miss haha, amazing stuff.
Maybe, but I see Jones being our captain in a few years. What'd you think?
Him and De Gea can be captain/vice captain.
LOL where is Bebe now?
I like your line-up apart from a few things, mainly Buttner. I want Fabio to play instead.
Oh and Fellaini is cup tied, and injured, so definitely won't play.
Hopefully Kagawa figured out how much a person can eat haha.
Completely agreed, we need approach every game with full aggression.
Yeah good point about Smalling, I'd like to see Rafael more. He's one of my favourites and he epitomizes everything about our club, works his socks off day in day out.
Yeah I think you're right. It was most likely Bale. Wow, that would've changed a lot. But, surely Levy wouldn't have sold to an English club, even for 120m?
That's a heck of a lot of money! That would've been a lot of pressure for one man.
Yeah Rooney at CM should be part time.
Good response, yeah fair enough, I was just shocked that they won 5-0. We'll probably be 2 points behind them at the half way stage, with them coming to OT so we can hopefully overtake them.
Same here. I think Arsenal will be out. But I think Barca will beat City in a very high scoring match.
I can't see Chelsea losing, but hopefully!
Looking forward to wednesday's game? Who do you think will play?
I thought it was a fun game to watch, finally we something more comfortable for United fans! Been a while, eh?
Valencia + Rafael combo really destroyed them. But it's not a long term solution and we need more options going forward. Atm, it's just Rooney to Valencia and then a cross from there. It worked against Villa because they were extremely unorganised and Luna is a joke of a LB, but we need more options you know?
Glad to see Welbeck scoring, we'll see if he ups his game for the next month, we need him more than ever.
Rooney at CM is great for now because we actually controlled the game, something we haven't done in a long time since Carrick got injured funnily enough.
What about you? Thoughts?
I'm concerned about Liverpool though. They look really good atm, and it'll be hard to overcome them.
I'm glad we got a Olympiakos in the UCL btw, what a great draw! Who do you see qualifying to the last 8?
Yep, quite a big problem. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. I guess our only hope is to offer them nice big wages, or hope the allure of playing for Manchester United is enough.
At a point Fabio was better than Rafael just injuries and Evra killed his career for us. SAF does not rest Evra. Evra does not get injured. Tough to break into that. Infact up until now, I have never seen Evra injured. Worrying.
I just think its the best we are going to get in this situation.
Nani, I hope playing with Kagawa will up his game, I think Kagawa is the man to draw that player we love out of Nani.
Buttner/Fabio. Is better than seeing Young/Welbeck/Kagawa out on that left wing. Though against Shaktar Young was one of the better players. His comments about diving irked me, right now the idea of him pulling on our beloved strip makes me sick.
That is not a guarantee, Unless Klopp loves challenges. Right now we looked destined for a spell in midtable, lets just hope it doesn't last as long as Liverpools.
I would pick a similiar team. Evra's injured I believe.
Nani-----Kagawa---Januzaj/Buttner(Used to be a left winger, and I think him and Fabio would be able to cover each others weaknesses.)
I think this would be a much more dynamic team pace and movement, with creativity. The top 4 players press their defense when we dont have the ball. Jones and Anderson to carry and distribute the ball two those 4. Fullbacks to provide our with, with any of the top floor floating wide if needed.
Sorry for the late reply, slipping at the moment.
I didn't realize he got that lot for so cheap, I knew Kagawa was a one off at 300k. He's a master at getting a player cheap and selling them for Maximum profit. Not only that but being able to replace them like for like or even better. He is a footballing genius, and I think whatever club gets him would be very lucky.
As for the rest, can't argue. Whats your hopes for tomorrow, team selection and such?
Sorry about David Teo, he's trying to start an uprising against me or something. I don't really know what he plans to achieve to be honest. Anyway, sorry this guy is spamming you about me.
oops. sorry ignore the last 2 posts. Wrong person!
Sorry for the essay.
