    Forgetting the trolls on this thread. I was glad to see that we kept a clean sheet which we haven't been able to do throughout pre-season. Good solid performance at the back!

    And Sky Sports have just posted this:

    Speaking at the post-match press conference after Manchester United beat Wigan in the Community Shield, David Moyes confirmed the club are 'closer' to bringing in a new signing. We'll bring you more shortly.

    Lets go through a combined XI for all 3 shall we?

    GK: Lloris
    RB: Walker
    CB: Koscielny
    CB: Vert
    LB: Evra
    RM: Walcott
    CM: Wilshere
    CM: Carrick
    LM: Bale
    ST: Van Persie
    ST: Podolski

    United have very few World Class Individuals left in their team. Most of the team is past it and no one wants to join a sinking ship (Thiago, Fabregas).
    :lol:

    GK: De Gea
    RB: Rafael
    CB: Vidic
    CB: Ferdinand
    LB: Evra
    RM: Walcott
    CM: Carrick
    CM: Siggurdson
    LM: Bale
    CF: Rooney
    CF: Van Persie

    and tbh I would say that Zaha will probably be better in that position than Walcott in time and we can sign someone better than Siggurdson as well. so really only Bale from Spurs/Arsenal would definitely make it into United's team imo.

    Boy, that first Van Persie goal was crucial. Good to see he's already in the goals this season. Him, Carrick and Vidic all had good games, we'll be okay.

    Hearing Rafael is out for 4-5 weeks - looking forward to Fabio stepping up!

    I rate him, though I don't really rate any of your or Arsenal's CM's more than what we have now so really just picked one for the sake of it.

    Shame about Rafael. Not only did that ruin his game, but Jones's too. Poor match really. Come next week, we really need to step it up. Fortunate that RvP possesses the quality to win games alone, that first goal was ridiculous, such precision.

    RB: Walker
    If you're going for "knowledgeable about football" trolling, then it's useful to actually have some knowledge about football. Walker was incredibly poor last season, losing goals single-handedly at times.

    This has got to be a troll! United's defence is past it completely Kosc and Jan are so much better than Vidic etc. De Gea not quite yet and Walcott is going to be better than Zaha will ever be.

    Not going to lie slightly forgot Rafa. But Sagna cost Arsenal goals almost individually as well last season, so to put Walker in front of him was somewhat touch and go I admit.

    Do you guys think Welbeck will beat his tally of 1 goal next season?
    It's gonna be tough. But maybe if he works hard enough he can do it

    A decent performance by Manchester United today. Not one of their best but at the end of the day a wins a win. Read some of the comments from the seemly non United fans I'd just say don't underestimate your opponents thinking a change in manager will favour your team or even weaken theres. Cause I think Manchester United not being favourites will only take the pressure off them and spur them on to work harder and prove everyone wrong.

    On Moyes, I'm pleased for him more than anyone since his been getting a lot of stick in the past month or so. If he gets a decent midfielder in they'll be up there challenging for the title but whether he'll win it is another matter. Nevertheless its a good start and I wish him all the best for the start of the season.

    I hope Januzaj gets the no. 7 shirtt. Just like when Ronaldo was given the shirt, he's showing bags of potential. He could really live up to be a United legend.

    Why has nobody picked up on this? Valencia releases the no.7 shirt, Moyes says your close to a new signing. All points to CR7 coming back :rolleyes:

    Its more likely to be Fellaini who was apparently left out of Everton's game today

    I wouldn't give him the number seven shirt. Sure he's had a promising pre-season but not enough to warrant the number seven jersey, important not to get too carried away.

    On Ronaldo - my brother joked it could be that but not for me. Valencia relinquished the jersey and it seems more than likely that the new signing (Fellaini) will get it or they might leave it till next summer.

    I still think Rooney is staying as well.

    Was it just me or did Valencia play better without wearing the number 7 shirt today? Maybe Zaha starting in the first team put some pressure on him to put in a decent performance.

    he did okay when he came on I thought, hopefully the shirt number change has him back to his best, he was excellent for us in 2009/2010 and 2011/2012.

    They can't give it to Fellaini - he plays CM/CDM FFS. Number 7 is for wingers/strikers.

    I don't get why he's under the radar.
