Do you think we'll go back to the diamond?

We have the fuckin players to play a proper 4 2 3 1 now but I fear we'll play some shite philosophy formation and score two and concede about 5 if any of their strikers are fit.

Id go

Rafael Jones Evans Rojo/Blackett

Carrick Blind

Herrera Mata ADM

Falcao


And next week swap Mata for Rooney in the Derby
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Didn't get too involved in slagging off Liverpool last night as i knew this was coming. God please let it be better in reality, than it is in my head.

Can't see anything but a hammering...

a quality performance but a loss is acceptable

a shit performance and a hammering is not.

as long as the energy level is high, the discipline is strong (i.e., they stick to there gameplan), then all good.

the biggest area of improvement isn't defence, it's keeping the fucking round leather thing. this applies to everyone in the park

new players or not, a professional footballer should know how to keep the ball and pass it in the general direction of a person in your side - under pressure or not. Sure, good tackles and tactical pressure leads to dispossession but the amount of times we simply lose the ball because our players act as if they are blind, is a concern.

just keep the cunting ball. that shld be the number one philosophy.

well up for this. can't see us being raped though.

Think they are sweating on all three strikers,

Thats why Id play Blind and Carrick as a 2, we've enough quality ahead of them in the 3 and upfront, he'll play RVP and Falcao though, it's a cert

In the predictions league I do at work, I put this game down as a 1-1 draw, but even I feel like I was being hopelessly optimistic! On current form, this could well be a humiliation.

Midfield is going to be Chelski strongest position, Hazard, Fabregas, all those other floaty benders they have. Keep it tight and control the ball. Don't over commit forward cos they love a bit of counter attack. If Carrick is fit, Carrick instead of Fellaini, Fellaini instead of Mata which are words I didn't think I'd ever write but Mata really doesn't look like he wants to keep a place in the team right now

The hammering they give will depend on the fitness of their forwards.

Really need Di Maria and Falcao to have their best games. Jones in defence.....FFS.

Can't throw Carrick into his first competitive game for months and expect him to be any good, especially against Chelsea. Ditto for Evans and Costa/Drogba would bully Blackett. di Maria might is injured and Herrera probably has to wear the corset again.

van Gaal was experimenting with the 4141 vs. West Brom so that's probably what he's going to do. Not going to work with Mata in one of the CM spots and Januzaj was poor so we'll see Valencia and Fellaini and more hoofball.
