I'm surprised you didn't make this thread yet G-Dragon :bye:

I wonder if Burnley will be able to deal with our long balls.

I predict an incredibly dull game, devoid of creativity and flair. Hope I'm wrong, but United are the worst team in the league to watch at the moment other than Aston Villa.

1-0 United.

United mid field is very poor compared to most top teams. And Falcao has been a real let down.

Still 1-0 United.

We've been shite in this match so far. Struggling to get control and really should be losing.

Sounds like we're more than holding our own. I'm still a long way from expecting anything from the game, but at least we're giving a good account of ourselves.

Rooney is now playing as an out and out holding midfielder.

Pls help.

Smalling on fire tonight!

Why we dont play short corners more often I've no idea, ten times more dangerous. With Herrera on now for second half I expect us to take a bit more control and hopefully can link up more and seal the game.

I only caught the first half and we were terrible. We should be dominating games like that at home. I have to say Falcao was awful. He doesn't look anywhere near the player he once was. Runs around like a headless chicken and can't control anything. Thankfully he's only on loan.

Herrera needs to start the next game and Rooney needs to be moved up front.

Agree with all of that. Also Van Gaal needs to get over his obsession with having a right footed/left footed centre back pairing. It is insane that he picked the utterly useless Jonny Evans over Smalling who on the whole has done quite well this season, for the above mentioned reason.

Its so perplexing how LVG keeps going on about needing pace and quicker passing and yet doesnt play the only player in the squad that can do it consistently in Herrera. We have Rooney struggling to influence things in midfield and a forward partnership which offers nothing. Herrera, Mata and Rooney were showing good understanding in our good run a while back. I'd like to see us try out:

Carrick-Blind
Herrera-Mata-Di Maria
Rooney

OR

Blind
Herrera-Di Maria
Mata
Rooney Falcao

I think Falcao would thrive alot more with Rooney alongside him and a chance to make more runs. Mata, Herrera starting and Rooney up front are musts for me.
