Football News: I'm Happier now with Manchester United than under Moyes or LVG

Manchester United may not well be playing well, in fact I will be surprised if we finish in the top 6 of the Premier League (PL), but for once I'm not as unhappy as I was under David Moyes or Louis Van Gaal (LVG).

We've had our fair share of bad luck - against Astana and Rochdale we created a lot of chances with a lot of wasteful finishing, LVGs team wouldn't have done that though.

On the positive side, we have Fellaini off the books, who was never a United player.
Herrera never played more than 20 games, and was asking stupid money, he's off.
Sanchez is thrown out, Lukaku never fit us or Chelsea. He had his best days in an Everton shirt. Darmian is out, and finally some manager had the balls to put Smalling out.

Goalkeepers:
David De Gea is signed to a bumper deal, we may be overpaying for him, but I feel it's still better than signing someone like Jan Oblak for obscene amounts and don't know how he will settle in. Romero is an exceptional no. 2 and Henderson is an exceptional understudy. Our Goalkeeper places look really strong.

 


Defence:
I don't think I've seen a better defensive Right Back (RB) in the PL than Aaron Wan-Bissaka (AWB). Not many get the better of him, and he tackles superbly well and is to me better than Kyle Walker or Kieran Trippier. (Dalot is an offensive RB).

Tuanzebe, Maguire and Lindelof are quite decent first choices and Jones and Rojo are decent backups. Shaw is a crock, yet average when he plays, Brandon Williams had a blinder yesterday, didn't look like he was on a debut. Rojo played well when he had to cover. Ashley Young as a stop gap is not ideal but okay.

 


Midfield:
I think it's is a mess, we might play much better if we shift to 3 man midfield with McTominay holding, Pogba on the left and Mata on the right of midfield.
Pogba and Mata seem to be the only players that can unlock defences.

Nemanja Matic should only start if no one else is available, he looks done after 60 minutes in a game and people pass him by.

Fred is extremely inconsistent, has the pace to go and up down, very good at shooting, yet misplaces passes under zero pressure. Hopefully it's a confidence thing, should be ahead of Matic all the time.

Garner is an unknown to me, but I've heard he's quite good and has been scoring a lot of goals for the reserves.

A midfield of Pogba, Mata and McTominay is the key for me to unlock teams. Fred can cover all 3 of those positions, and I would put Periera and Garner ahead of Matic to fill these places.

 


Attack:
Greenwood: Has like 4-5 chances every 90 minutes he starts, easily a £40 million player in the market - A Wonder Kid for me. I would start him as much as I could, looks a cracking talent.

Rashford: Hot and cold, scores 5 goals in 5 games, none for the next 10.

Martial: Can be massive centrally, and has shown he can lead the line, but has fitness issues.

Lingard: It's been almost a year since he scored a goal. I think, this cat never runs out of lives. Misses 2-3 key chances every game. Not United quality.

Chong: From what I've seen, he will be sold soon, can't beat a man, when he moves the ball forward it's either intercepted or goes out of play, not the greatest touch. I will be very surprised if he makes it.

Gomes: I think he's way better than the game time he gets. He has exceptional ball control, looks very raw, yet if you see his preseason against Tottenham Hotspur, he beats 3-4 guys alone to score that. I don't think he misplaced any passes in the Astana game, moves the ball around quickly, gets into spaces, I would bet on him to eventually grow a first teamer this year.
I think he's better in terms of quality ahead of Lingard, Pereira and Chong.

Dan James: Wow, inspired signing and excellent scouting.

And the squad has an abundance of players that play on the Left Wing - Dan James, Rashford, Martial, Andreas Periera, Chong and yet only 2 in Dalot and Greenwood who look comfortable on the right. We need a Right Wing player and a striker like Mandzukic badly.

The first team XI is definitely good enough to finish top 4 of the Premier League, but not sure fo that if any of the first XI get injured.

Team good enough to make top 4:
De Gea,
AWB - Maguire - Lindelof - Shaw,
Mata - McTominay - Pogba,
Greenwood - Martial - James.
