I would play Lewis for this game so we can get some sort of pace at the back at least. We are going to lose anyway so we may as well give Bruce someone to pin the blame on because he sure as shit wouldn’t call out Richie or Shelvey


But then the world wouldn’t see the clash of the titans that is Ronaldo v Ritchie…?

Nevermind Ronaldo. Hope we get to see Hendrick and Krafht. Now there’s a pair of footballers to watch.

:lol: The level if disparity in talent you only tend to see during Socceraid.

Honestly don't think there's ever been a game I've looked forward to less than this. Absolutely nothing in this for us, it's as obvious a loss as you'll get all season (decade, even), with the added bonus of the rapist coming on to score a few goals to everyones delight.

“I entered her from behind. It was rude. We didn’t change position. 5/7 minutes. She said that she didn’t want to, but she made herself available … But she kept saying ‘No.’ ‘Don’t do it.’ ‘I’m not like the others.’ I apologised afterwards”.

 

Can't wait to see this global icon return.

If this was Burnley or any team with some balls they’d be relishing this.

 

Us on the other hand, well we know how this goes.

 

They’ll be fucking pathetic spineless cunts all afternoon, scared to make a tackle and just happy to smile and shake hands at the end.

 

A disgrace to this proud city and club.

Quite excited for this match but for all the wrong reasons. Hope. It's 6-0 with Cronaldo getting at least 3. Let's make it a day to remember.

I just can't get my head around wanting Man U and especially Ronaldo to do well here. It's what our pathetic excuse of a manager wants for a start, so that alone should make you want us to do something. And as for Ronaldo, sod that tax dodging rapist scum, can't be fucked with the media celebrating his comeback against us for the next 10 years.

Under Pardew, this is the kind of game we would sometimes fluke a 0-1. 

 

Today will be like Ronaldo's testimonial. 4-0, not even a shot on target.

Might work. Would probably go 4-2-3-1 though, think that suits our player pool best, both with who's available atm and the squad as a whole. Even just 5-4-1 would make us more solid defensively, it's what we played in 19-20 when we were still fairly solid defensively; our wing backs don't get outnumbered and there's an out ball. Assuming players are in their right positions of course. :lol:


the problem with the 5-4-1 is that it will be even worse than the 5-3-2 because our focal point striker will be completely unable to hold the ball. It’ll be isolated madness. 
 

If it’s 4-2-3-1 then I’m good with that too. Hayden and Longstaff in the 2. Willock as the 10. Maxi and Almiron wide. Joelinton up top. It’s not great but it’s better. I guess with that 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-2 diamond you’d have the same players out there and be able to adjust.

Yeah we can't go 5-4-1 especially if that 1 is Joelinton, he's proven when on his own that nothing happens. Completely isolated as Kanji mentioned. Explains the insistence on having 2 even if the other pairing is Saint who isn't a natural forward but rather a winger. Confuses me why Bruce wants a 5-3-2 when we have wingers and non-natural wingbacks? Just play to our strengths!

Anyway I’m expecting a complete lay down job by our players today. 

Totally agree, I think we'll have a flat back five from the get go and look to frustrate them, there won't be any counter attacking game plan other than give it to ASM, all Man U need to do is clatter him early doors and our minimal attacking threat is nullified.

Discussing possible formations and tactics and their advantages is a complete waste of time. We all know that however we set up in the first few minutes we'll quickly drop back and it'll be backs to the wall for 90 mins with the odd break, shot from distance and maybe a corner and that's about it. It'll be zero ambition, men behind the ball, 3rd round of the Cup, timewasting exercise. Expecting a very comfortable home win but an early goal and it could easily get very messy very quickly, wouldn't rule out 6, 7 or 8 if they're in the mood.
