Not too good atm, at an all time low on this forum. Yourself?

Interesting timing with your return btw.
Uni/work? Life is good, on cruise control hoping Aguero gets me some points tonight.

Not a surprise wrt this forum, got bored with it myself, lost a lot of good posters.

Why is it interesting timing? Probably not around long, just have a lot of free time this week/

Graduated, got myself a 9-5 so that's all good.

This forum forever keeps me pulling me back in ffs.

As for timing; Mourinho sacked, United struggling and Liverpool just beat the best team in the world.

Good stuff

It lost that pull on me a long time ago, surprised by some of the people I still see posting tbh.

Well what can I say, us sitting in tenth is going to give me a lot of leeway to troll :smug:

I bought him on FIFA 16 career mode


Rather we bought Lucas though. Reckon he'd be a beast in the PL. He can be our Neymar. Only fair since they took Di Maria. Would be tricky to convince him to come in Jan though since we are out of the CL.

Ideally I'd like our front 4 for next season to be

Martial
Goalscoring LW --- Creative #10 ---- Top Dribbler RW

Memphis should be that LW but isn't living up to expectation. I believe we should give him more time though. For the RW would like Lucas. For #10 I'd take Isco (looks city bound though)/Pogba/Fekir (if recovers fine)/Give Pereira a try. Mata doesn't look his old self. We need someone who can unlock defences like Ozil.

I've seen Felipe play for Lazio he's quality much better than Lucas. They both have that brazilian skill but Felipe has got insane finishing ability and great vision.....he reminds me of Neymar similar type of style. He would be a perfect Winger here

Looks like we will be keeping an eye on J.Rodriguez and Felipe......and Stones!

Memphis Rodriguez Felipe

Luck during our first 14 or so games. We have been playing horrible football all season. Our results have now been mirroring our performances.

Our shots per game has been at an all time low. Our conversion of big chances had been at an all time high. Although, our opponents have also had a very high shots per goal ratio.

Wow....i'm so terrified for the game against Swansea. I don't know what to expect if it's 0-0 i may as well stop watching the games because this is getting hella frustrating and its torture seeing the same thing week in week out

Van Gaal has broken sooo many records and they are not good ones :lol:

The good thing about playing Swansea is they're also not in good form. We have played horribly against them over the last three years, but they tend to be in good form when we play them. Swansea are one of the couple teams in the league I actually expect us to beat atm.

Surprisingly, the teams we've drawn and lost to recently have been in better form than you'd expect. You'd still expect Man United to beat them at any other time.

So many records have been broken over the last three years.

I still think the real problems came when LvG tried to play more expansive football due to pressure from the fans. Obviously injuries didn't help, but LvG should have stuck with two proper DMs in the 4-4-1-1 that was getting us results earlier in the season. Morgan should have started in every game he was available, even if he was incapable of doing things Carrick/Basti/Ander can on the ball, or couldn't bring the goal threat of Fellaini. Obviously hindsight is great, cause all four of those midfielders have disappointed in some way over the last 4-6 weeks. But yeah, still can't believe the XI he started with against Wolfsburg - Carrick should have started ahead of Fellaini/Mata.

we're genuinely ****ed! May as well throw away this season we aren't going to win the league and top 4 is looking very bleak indeed :lol:

I had a season ticket for years. Never got my hands on an Liverpool away ticket in all my time of trying.

Finally got one this year.

What a poisoned chalice.

Hopefully your time has finally come, rather than ticket demand actually falling that dramatically

Can you really say the first bit when the multitude of 0-0 draws was what made Van Gaal adapt a more open formation?

I think the problems have been exacerbated with playing this football without the clinical instinct that Van Gaal talked about earlier this season, but there were issues in the first place as it was.
