Given all the talk of the squad and formations and tactics. I was wondering what people would consider the best formation, tactics and first 11 and also what would need to change and where?

For me, I would like to see a 3-5-2 formation. The few times José has used this, we have looked better going forward, if not slightly more vulnerable at the back.

---------------De Gea---------------

Personally, I would only be looking for two players. A replacement for Smailling (someone like Varane would be ideal) and a replacement/ second option for Herrera.

I would keep Shaw and Fosu-Mensah as understudies to Valencia and Young, I believe all four would benefit from the wing back position as to total full back.

I would want back-up for Matic (holding midfielder sitting in front of the back line), it feels that's been an issue this year when he's been tired.

I would want a strong midfielder to ideally replace Herrera in that first 11. And use Herrera, McTominay and Lingard (standard midfielder linking up defense and attack) as back-up options.

As for cover for Pogba (offensive playmaker), I'd just use Perreira, seems suited to that left slightly more offensive role.

Martial and Rashford could then be used both as forwards in rotation with Sanchez (sitting in behind the main striker roaming right to left) and Lukaku. I really liked SAF's approach to having two strong parternships in the days of Cole/ Yorke and Sheringham/ Solskjaer. If those four could strike up two similar partnerships, that would be great.

I would move on Smalling, Jones, Blind, Fellaini and Mata (I love the guy, but don't think he fits in with the current squad) .

I would also look into bringing in another CB for cover, unless Tuanzebe could be that option.

Therefore, I don't think there is too much wrong with the current squad, two high profile signings (one defender and one midfielder) could be enough, and maybe one or two options for cover.

Swap Seri for Fabinho in CDM and I think you've a whooper team sir. That is if there's any actual harmony in camp and Mourinho stays. Something doesn't seem right at all at the moment.

Teams please ed

Bit of fun, what is the most defensive team Mourinho could possibly put out, hopefully that way I will be pleasantly surprised by the real line up. Here's mine:


Darmian Bailly Smalling Rojo Young

Tony V McTom Matic Herrera

Sgnt Lukaku

If we have 0-0 to hold onto in the last 85 mins of the game then Sgnt Lukaku will be asked to play as an auxiliary CB.

Big game today against a tough opposition. They managed to beat Chelsea almost beat City only for a late penalty miss and lost out to spurs in the last minute. We're lucky in a sense that they're missing key players. (Fosu Mensah will be a huge miss imo) I'm hoping for a positive result and think Lingard deserves to start. To be honest I can't see Jose dropping Sanchez and I think we'll go with 3 in midfield so Martial may pay the price. The up side to that is Lingard will be more comfortable on the right. I'm going for a 0-1 United and Lukaku goal. It'd be the prefect result before some tough fixtures.

Martial out with a minor Injury, I would like to see lingard come in but have a feeling it could be rash.

Had a quick read of the round up below from tris.

Re the PL all stars game - North VS South?

Obviously us as united fans would pit for the North but who would your 11 be?

De Bruyne

Ederson, Otamendi, Valencia, Pogba, Martial, Firmino, Lingard

Would probably be mine


{Ed001's Note - Shaw? He can't get a game for United, how can he be first choice in an All Star team? What about someone like Baines or even Ward of Burnley? I know they have both had injury problems this year, but they were first choice and their teams look much better when they play.

Thanks for reading the round up by the way.}
