Evening ladies and gents, just wondering how y'all think Jose will line it's up this season?
Last year Jose wanted to move to a 352 but abandoned that claiming he couldn't get the right players (namely perisic) . Since there's only really been rumours of just blind returning to Ajax and no other CBS leaving, and with us being linked to organising leader types joining, do you think Jose will again try 3 at the back?
Personally I think that Ronaldo joining juve makes the Sandro deal more likely so will be a big upgrade down the left and using Shaw as his deputy (assuming he stays) would mean Valencia and young can cover the right side for a season while dalmat is blooded in and adapts. Now I know this is not ideal but I believe young is better on the right anyway and both are reliable enough at least so that Woodward can prioritize other positions this summer.
Also just throwing it out there but what would you guys think of buying Maguire with smalling going the other way cheap? This would be in addition to the experienced CB so is very unlikely but just feel it's a deal that could suit all parties and Maguire kinda reminds me of Bruce n guess I'm just a sucker for nostalgia.

How does us buying Leicester’s best centre half for cheap and giving them Smalling suit all parties? Do you mean it suits United? Why would Leicester agree to that?

I don’t think Young is very good on the right, never seen him have a good game for us there, and who is Dalmat?

Maguire is nowhere near the level required. After this WC fiasco is over (once England play a side better than championship level) then I suspect people will come back down to earth Re the England individual players as well.
Want a WC center back then we should be chasing the Rafa Varane’s of the world.

I think we will we more of the same. Safety first, worry about the opposition first. The interesting thing for me is how Jose reacts if he doesn’t get the players he wants the time. He was clearly disgruntled with some last year, rumours abound that Pogba has been offered to other clubs, he has little faith in Rashford and Martial, Bailly seems to have upset him, Shaw is out of favour, Herrera hardly got a look in last year. That’s a lot of players to have fallen out with or publicly criticised. Without going back to United Addicts England vs United argument, therein lies the main difference.

Bitterest post of Tuesday award goes to you mate, how unfortunate that some people can't just be happy for others and have to do everything down. We are in the World Cup Semi Final, get over it.

Probably with his usual park the bus formation, its time we got back to playing with attacking flair that our fans demand.
