Looking at today's team and I can honestly say he should of left Shaw at lb he's deserved his place.

I think we are at a vital time to back Mourinho and get the world class signings that are very plausible to compete with citeh and the rest of Europe. My hopes for the start of next season.

Team vs big teams:
De Gea
Bailey Lindelof
Valencia Sandro
Dybala Sanchez/ Martial
Martial/ Lukaku

Team vs lesser teams:
De Gea
Bailey Lindelof
TFM Shaw/ Sandro
Savic/ Matic
Sanchez Dybala Martial

Rest of squad: Pereira, Rojo, Jones, Young, Tuanzebe, Herrara, McTominay, Pereira, Gomes, Lingard, Rashford.

Does anyone know why we ditched the 3-5-2 formation after the arsenal game? We had been getting a fair few decent results with it such as arsenal and watford away and spurs at home.

For me it seems like an ideal formation for us because it gives pogba space and defensive cover to drive forward and we get a certain amount of width in our team with the wingbacks. Also it gives lukaku a partner, him and martial have linked up well when paired together and then someone like lingard (maybe ozil next season) can play off them in those little pockets of space.

Lastly we have enough centre halves to play the formation with bailly, tuanzebe, lindelof, jones, blind, smalling and rojo all available in parts during the season.

If we can get a proper left wing back to rotate with shaw and maybe a left footed centre half such as umtiti, laporte or vertonghen to rotate with rojo, it could be formation that suits us very well for the second half of the season going into next.

Personally I prefer to have an extra attacker on the pitch. I think we played that formation when other teams played it against us. Watford was maybe a trial run for Arsenal?

12 Jan 2018 12:48:07
So. If and of course its a big if, we get Sanchez, where does he play?

I feel we must be going two up top to fit all the players in. Fegie always said you need 4 top strikers when you play that way. So Lukaku, Sanchez, Rahford and Martial would be the 4. I think it coukd be a 4-3-1-2. So maybe Lingard and Mata (Ozil maybe! ) And a three of Matic, Pogba and one more signing in the summer. Herrera, Mctominnay, Perrera as cover.

With the players we have we can easily adjust to play wider if need be. Also the full backs are massive in the formation. Valencia is always up and down but needs solid cover but we have a returning TFM with a EPL season at right back and if the Alex Sandro interest is real, then him and maybe Shaw will rotate.

Im happy with center backs when all fit and we have the best keeper in the world with us. City are ahead at the moment but I remember winning the league a few years ago by 18 points. It didn't take long for teams to challenege us again. Keep the faith and let's target a solid top 4 finish and a proper blast in europe and fa cup. Jose does love a cup run.

Go on then, since it is silly season:


Maybe they just want to play together AND win titles 😁.

Imagine this team at the start of next season.

De Gea
Valencia Bailly Jones rose/ shaw
Milinkovic-Savic Matic pogba
Bale Lukaku Sanchez

I know it’s fantasy but if we got everyone we wanted or are linked to that would be quite frightening! Thought?

Agree0 Disagree0

Big red. I would rather have different full backs than those you have mentioned. Great and as you say a dream midfield although I'd rather kroos or verati
I really like bale but like with rose very often injured. Sanchez would be great for sure but highly doubtful sadly.

11 Jan 2018 22:28:40
No Jesse no party.

12 Jan 2018 00:42:25
Agreed ken maybe throw in 2 better full backs but I was trying to do it without changing too much in the team. Just a few quality tweaks with players we have been linked to. Imo if that team was fit and firing we would walk the league.

GDS2 change the rules and allow 12 men as Jesse deserves it atm haha.

I'd like to take some opinions on how you think we would line up next season, and the players needed to make it work.

Imo the best way for us to line up would be a 4-2-2-2, with 2 strikers, 2 attacking midfielders with the freedom to move freely between the middle and the wings, and a double pivot midfield that would allow our full backs ( or wingbacks ) to stay up the pitch when attacking.

Imo giving Pogba a position in the attacking midfield 2 coming towards the left would get the best out of him, with Ozil next to him coming in from the right would get the best out of him. But for that to work we would need 2 high quality attack minded full backs, and for that we need cover/ eventual replacement for Valencia, and competition for Shaw. We would also need a deep midfielder next to Matic.

As for who to get, Ozil as previously mentioned. He never really found his best form at Arsenal, and if Jose can get the best out of him ( his real Madrid form ), with Pogba next to him, we might have a very creative team all in all.

For someone to sit next to Matic, I think Kovacic from Real Madrid is a very good option to have, or if SMS from Lazio is seen by the scouts to be a good fit, I'm all for it. Jorginho from Napoli would not be a bad shout.

I personally hope we don't get Rose in, seems to be injured more often than not, and Shaw seems to be regaining his form. If that was to be the case, a young left back to cover for Shaw needs to be brought in, and if Mourinho still doesn't trust him, than maybe Sandro if we can do something to block his Chelsea move.

Pereira and Mata would cover for Pogba and Ozil, Herrera for Matic and his partner, and most importantly this would allow us to play Martial next to Lukaku as a striker and see his development maximized, whilst also making the best out of their partnership.

Agree0 Disagree1

I can see us going 4 - 3 - 3 to get the best out of Pogba and create more for Lukaku.

01 Jan 2018 16:59:34
Martial up front, 3 in midfield. This is what I wanted to see.

Hey guys, was just having a think about how we should plan our squad building over the next two transfer windows and thought I'd share my views to see what everyone thinks.

First of all, i'd let go of Darmian, Fellaini, Blind, Carrick, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic and Mata. I'd also send Tuanzebe (preferably to a PL side) out on loan as we he could do with some game time.

In terms of signings, we all know we need a LB and I think we should sign Rose, in January if possible. All the other signings would most likely be over the summer but I think we should try and sign Milinkovic-Savic as we rely too heavily on Pogba; Özil and Mahrez to improve the quality of our attack and provide better service to Lukaku. Finally, with Zlatan gone, i'd like Moussa Dembele (Celtic) as a back up for Lukaku who can also push for his spot.

This would mean that next season, for each position our options would be:
GK - De Gea/ Romero/ Pereira
RB - Valencia/ Fosu-Mensah/ Young
CB - Bailly/ Jones/ Smalling/ Rojo/ Lindelöf
LB - Rose/ Shaw/ Young
DM/ CM - Pogba/ SMS/ Matic/ Herrera/ Pereira/ McTominay
AM - Özil/ Lingard/ Pereira
RW - Mahrez/ Özil/ Rashford/ Lingard
LW - Martial/ Rashford/ Pereira/ Lingard
CF - Lukaku/ Dembele/ Rashford/ Martial

I think this squad would give Mourinho better tactical options and allow us to make a genuine title challenge as well as progress into the latter stages of the UCL. The signings are all fairly realistic and the financial outlay shouldn't be a problem for the club.

Thanks to anyone who took their time to read this and i'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts :)

Interesting team, either Blind and Herrera in midfield with Pogba at No.10 or Blind as the LCB with Pogba and Herrera in midfield and Mata at No.10. Very flexible.
