Keane was amazing but I'd have Viera and Scholes above him.

Roy Keane is the GOAT Premierleague centre midfielder. Just a pity he played for the wrong club

Played for the right country though

Roy Keane

And Keane should be in that team over Viera. He was magnificent at everything someone in his position should be to justify a world class label.
Only in the modern day, right now actually, is 3 dimensional midfielders required for big teams. Combinations like Scholes and Keane were often throughout European football in the early turn of this century and throughout the late 90s. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Scholes not being able to pull off proper challenges and tackles, provided there is the perfect cover. Nowadays, there is.

Its esstential in todays game, yeah. You are attacking in packs, defending in packs. Retaining in packs. You need players to support and cover, because its much more of a tactical warfare. It probably explains why Manchester United are losing the edge. Fergie's an old fox. He has tried to adapt to the modern game but is still missing the big oversight. And its one most people have picked up on.

Its a good change for football though. Need all 11 players to be compatible. Could probably put it down to Guardiola & Barcelona's methodology and tactics.

Liverpool finish the first phase of the new Under21 Premierleague as the only unbeaten team. 30pts out of 36. Rampant.
Unfortunately it looks like it will probably be Dani Pacheco's last game for the club, it's always been a mystery how he's never been given a real chance, given the amount of shite that have been getting games for us these past few years

I haven't posted in here for a bit but thought I'd quickly post my thoughts on United's recent performances. We're in December now, officially 1/3 through the new season and yet a lot of the team look like they're in pre-season mode. This slow, lethargic, lazy, sloppy, zombie football is getting so frustrating to watch now. The fact we're top still is a miracle but I can see these past run of performances eventually costing us (like it did against Spurs, Norwich, Everton).

You'd think by now we'd pick things up but no, we're still playing poorly. The defence is in shambles at the moment and the midfield is so average. Why it hasn't been improved when every United fan knows we need a new central midfielder I'll never know. Giggs is done, Scholes has been poor this season, Carrick has been abysmal and Fletcher isn't at his best yet. Anderson, who has been our best midfield player got his usual injury and Cleverley is a doubt to play when he's been pretty decent so far. It just doesn't bode well for the City game and I do think we'll lose the game based on the way we've been performing. If we didn't have so many injuries, I would think we'd have a decent chance of getting something but not now with the amount of injuries we've endured. Our fitness/medical staff need to be shot.

Anyway, onto the style of football we're playing at the moment... what the hell is it exactly? Zombie football and it needs to be chucked out the window, burned, just do anything to stop us from playing it! Ferguson is wondering why we're conceding easy and silly goals first and it's because of the negative way we're playing. We don't add pressure onto the opposing team, we're giving away possession easily because we're moving the ball literally at 0.0000001mph. Players that don't deserve to be anywhere near the starting XI are given starts and our wingers can't beat a man to save their lives. Also, hoofing the ball constantly and delivering dreadful crosses into the box hasn't helped our cause. We were playing some brilliant fast-flowing football at the beginning of last season with such a young squad but now we've gone back in reverse and we're doing the complete opposite this season.

It makes me wonder why we actually got rid of Berbatov. Ferguson said we wouldn't be playing his sort of style but this sort of style would easily appease Berbatov. It's a complete and utter joke and it needs sorting quickly, especially with the big game coming at the weekend. I was also furious to see on Wednesday against Cluj that despite it being a game that didn't have any importance, the players that needed to put in a good performance in order to get picked for the City game just didn't seem like they gave a fuck. Only Jones, Buttner, Powell and Welbeck looked decent. The rest just didn't look like they cared and to lose your 3 year unbeaten run at Old Trafford in Europe to fucking Cluj is a joke. I don't even feel that confident when we do play at Old Trafford now and that is because of the way we play there now. We look much more comfortable when we're playing away.

I guess I'm just venting at the moment but I don't see how we can get anything BASED on the way we've been playing this season. I'd be ecstatic with a point but I can see us getting dominated, especially in the midfield area. The thought of a possible Carrick/Giggs/Scholes midfield 3 starting is not giving me much hope. Fingers crossed Ferguson actually names the RIGHT starting XI unlike last season where the team he picked cost us the game from the very start.

What team would United posters like to see for Sunday?

CRISIS MODE: ENGAGED!

Seems like the keane over scholes/vieira debate is pretty split and as expected really all 3 are top class players.


Foreshadowed i agree with pretty much your whole post. We don't seem to have a style this year apart from keeping possesion in a bad way by passing it so slowly, and i have no idea on the team since vidic, nani, valencia, ando, cleverley and kagawa are all injured/doubtful pretty much 3 of our best flair players (anderson, nani and kagawa are missing)

I want/expect carrick/rooney/fletcher(scholes) in midfield and rvp up top as for the rest fuck knows. Honestly if jones is fit enough i'd play him RB and rafael right wing//left wing depending on valencia.

I'd love to see Rafael pushed further up the pitch, he's shown how good he is when he attacks and he's a very underrated crosser of the ball. Plus, he always seems to get in these really good positions when further up the pitch. He did play right wing 2 season ago in the FA Cup against Arsenal and he did very well in that position. I'd rather Rafael play further up the pitch than Welbeck on the wing or even Young, as he's so out of form. However, Young would have to start by default.

I also wouldn't mind deploying Jones in the midfield position along side Carrick. I know this is a risky move but both have worked well together in the past and Jones would provide a lot of energy, strength and pace in the midfield (as a box-to-box player). I know Jones isn't the creative type but I'd rather have him in midfield at this point that old man Giggs, out of form and static Scholes and not 100% at his best Fletcher. I actually wouldn't mind a team like this:

De Gea
Smalling Ferdinand Evans Evra
Carrick Jones
Rooney
Rafael Young
Van Persie


Something along those lines or have Jones at right back with Fletcher replacing him in midfield. Anything is better than Carrick/Giggs/Scholes.
