Official Manchester United Thread: Mou’s 3rd Season

Post by Kaladin on Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:01 pm

Depay, Darmian and now Schweinsteiger. They're on the lookout for another CB, are keen to latch on to DDG, looking for another forward to replace RVP and trying to get another midfielder (Shniderlin)

-----------DDG/Valdes
Darmian/Rafael-----New CB?/Smalling-----Rojo/Jones------Shaw/Blind
--------------Schweini/Fellaini----Schneiderlin/Carrick/Blind----Herrera/ADM
------Mata/Valencia/New RW?--------------------------Rooney/New ST?---------------------Depay/ADM/Young

Possible CL finalists? hmm

Not sure there's great strikers even available this year, apart from Chokeguain who's sort of an upgrade.

Honestly, United will be serious title contenders if they land Bastian, and a CB like Ramos/Hummels. Rooney is still top 5 PL strikers easily. they do need backup though.

They don't have a team any worse than City.

Battle for 3rd/4th might be great between the manchester clubs

Please don't jinx it Sad

But...

We still need a CB (Otamendi, please) another MF (Schneiderlin, please) Lloris ( If DDG leaves) and a striker ( A squad player like Berahino or Charlie Austin to play 2nd fiddle to Rooney)

Then we'll look somewhat decent.

I don't rate Schweinsteiger that highly tbh. Even if we get this team I have my doubts. Honestly I hope we get top 4. Anything else is a bonus.

There are question marks all over the team.

GK: Will DDG stay? If not will Valdes be #1 and if so what level will he reach? Even in his prime I would have said the Premier League ain't for him but 1 1/2 years out of football? For a small keeper who relies on his reflexes a lot that might be fatal.

RB: Serie ZzZZzz players have a knack for flopping in a different league. Whether a good but certainly not great 25 year old Torino rightback will actually deliver for a big team is anyone's guess.

CB: Otamendi in general has to prove that he's more than a 1 season wonder. On top of that whether he will be a good fit in van Gaal's system is up in the air. He won't come cheap in any case, Valencia will demand the full € 50M buyout clause the same way they did when they sold 30 year old Mathieu.

Midfield: Schweinsteiger is barely fit. He has started 37 out of 68 possible league games in the past 2 seasons which is about 50 %. Keep in mind that the workload in Bundesliga is also a lot lower than in the EPL. Only 18 teams, only 1 Cup which is always 1-legged and a 4 week winter break. Also Bayern usually stroll through games in the league (Müller: "training is harder than playing vs. Bundesfodder teams"). In England he'll have a much higher physical workload which might see him struggle even more with injuries.

Angel di Farcia: Will he continue to flop?

Schneiderlin: The step from Southampton to Yanited is huge. He might come good, he might flop.

Forwards: Wouldn't be the first wonderboy from the Dutch league to flop.

And obviously van Gaal himself remains a big question mark. Surprisingly Yanited's 2nd half of the season was actually worse than their first half of the season with that terrible start against Swansea, Leicester, Burnley, Sunderland, MK Dons etc.

36 points, 33:19 goal difference in the 1st half of the season.
34 points, 29:18 goal difference in the 2nd half of the season.

There hasn't been major progress throughout the season apart from 1 dominant display against Liverpool.

Tl;dr: All the signings could come good and improve their team. Or maybe they wouldn't.

Full of negativity.

And then your TL;DR, you make it seem as though it was impartial.

Here Here

Morgan-Piggy looks like a very simple but very effective midfield combination. So long as piggy stays fit but even then, they have Carrick, Herrera, who can occupy those role, and the potential to even play a tridente with Di Maria in his best role.

Schneiderlin is very very good, and him alone will improve man yoo incredibly

Don't know how Schweinsteiger is supposed to be a great signing.Its a very ok short term fix which could or could not work out.
I could only imagine the laughs here had an Italian team signed him.
Ramos I can understand as United need an experienced leader at the back but Schweini signing is a gamble for me at this point.

Arsenal and Chelsea are both miles ahead. Only players worth any damn are Di Maria (the erratic cross merchant) and De Gea.

Arsenal and Chelsea are "miles ahead" of United.

Someone is bitter.

With the team we're assembling and should assemble by the end of the transfer window, not a chance, but keep convincing yourself that. Hah!
