Tuned into the bilbao/valladolid in the 60th minute Athletic were down 1-0 and now winning 4-1 in the 85th minute. Gomez with a heroic effort. 2 goals and setup the De marcos goal. I LOVE SPANISH FOOTBALL.
Let's see how Moyes will utilize Mata.
Hopefully Moyes won't stick to the age-old 4-4-2 anymore.
It hasn't really worked since 2009.
Playing Mata behind RvP or Rooney is the place he needs to be played at. Kagawa should back him up there. Nani should play on the right and Januzaj on the left. Rooney could replace any of them.
Or then just implement a completely different strategy to accommodate our current players? Maybe a 4-1-4-1 (4-1-2-2-1) would be a good one? I have wanted to see that for some time already. That way we could have Mata and Rooney feeding RvP with Nani and Januzaj on the wings with Rooney helping down. Carrick/Jones/Fletcher as the helping CDM. Our problem has more been about scoring than conceding.
Young and Valencia should bugger off.
Knowing Moyes though he will probably play Mata at LW with Valencia at RW, Januzaj as a striker with Welbeck, Rooney in Midfield, RvP on the bench and Cleverley in midfield.
But City has enough goods in the front to cover him well with Dzeko, Negredo and Jovetic + likes of Silva who can play a more forward role as well.
I love how some United fans brag about our strikers, but basically I'd have 3 of their top 4 ahead of 2 of our 4 (and Dzeko ahead of Welbeck who is useless), and Aguero on top of everyone. I envy City's power.
