    Re: Manchester United Team 2011/2012 Season

    I think its unrealistic to thimk we'll sign Higuian as Real probably won't want to sell him and who said he'd want to come to England? He probably doesn't speak the language and is Argentine, no offence but Fergie has past experience of buying Argentine players and its never ended well, Veron was a failure in England because of the pace of the game, Heinze wanted to join Liverpool and we all know what happened to Tevez. I think Sneijder would be a gret signing but we'd need another midfield option alongside Fletcher for the big games. Also he speaks English and would fit in well if Scholes retires. Depends if he wants to win trophies or earn mega money on the other side of the city. I think fergie's got a keeper lined up but i also think the keeper will need some big match experience, I would try to get Buffon if he's interested in leaving Juventus. I wouldn't be surprised to see United sign a English or British keeper or someone who has experience in the Premier League. Someone safe, rather than someone spectacular. Its well known that he rates Pepe Reina but I'm not sure if we coild get him from Liverpool, given the history. I would expect Diouf, Owen and maybe Berbatov to leave in the summer, Macheda and Wellbeck will come back to the club as will Cleverly. My team would look more like Reina/Buffon Rafael Evra Vidic Ferdinand Valencia Fletcher Sneijder Nani Rooney Hernandez. obviously we have still got great players at the club the likes of Park, Giggs, O'Shea, Carrick, Anderson that are great pro's and would challenge to get in this team. We also have the like of Fabio, Smalling, Evans, Linegarrd, Gibson, Cleverly, Macheda, Welbeck etc who are young and have potential to break into the side rather than buying overpriced players that we can't afford anymore.
    I Hope we get the biggest number 19 banner in history !

    REALISTICALLY, i think SAF will only buy 2 players who will walk into the starting 11- De Gea and a centre midfielder like Sahin or De Rossi. The team, i imagine, will look like this:

                                 De Gea

    Rafael             Ferdinand     Vidic           Evra

                   De Rossi/Sahin    Anderson

    Valencia                 Rooney                   Nani

                                Chicharito

     

     Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Fabio, Carrick, Fletcher, Cleverley, Berbatov

    THIS IS RUBBISH NONSENSE, UNITED ONLY NEEDS A GOALKEEPER AT THE MOMENT

    UF99:

     ------------------------Buffon----------------------

    Rafael----Ferdinand-------Vidic--------Evra

    ----------Carrick/Defour----Fletcher-----------

    Valencia-------------------------------------Nani

    ---------------Rooney----Berbatov--------------

    Assuming van der Sar retires. If not, no need to splash on a keeper, or rather, not such a high profile one.

     

     

    much realistic to me as our first team except the keeper position...

     

    still worrying about absences of Scholes and Giggs...

                                       De Gea

                Rafael    Smalling      Vidic          Evra

                Nani       Rodwell       Fletcher     Bale

                               Rooney        Chicarito

    Bale -  £35m (Well worth if he can change his playing style like Giggs by burning pace when he is young and hug the touchline and cross in latter stages of his career)

    Rodwell - Carrick +  £5m (Absolutely worth it)

    De Gea - £20m (Well worth the fee if he can keep his fitness like VDS)

     In my dreamland (because everything we say here is just pure wishes and nothing more), I would retire the 4 legends.                                                       I will also sell Berbatov (I hate his attitude more than his lack of goal scoring), Gibson (Not good enough), Hargreaves (sadly but would let him go)

    I will add - Neuer, Schweinstagger, F.Contreao, J. Rodwell. (Maybe bring back Shawcross if possible), if Rooney leaves, then bring in L.Suarez.

    I think Macheda, Diouf and Welbeck should be good back ups.

                                                   Neuer

    Rafael                       Rio                  Vida                            Evra

                                               Fletch

      Valencia                         Scheinstagger                          Nani

                              Rooney/Suarez             Hernandez

    Lindegaard for 8m? LOLzzzzzzz, Yes the market is inflated but Lindegaard for 8m? NO WAY! He can't even hold down a first team place in the danish team. Neuer has refused signing a new contract and is free by summer of 2012, so we stand a chance of getting him at a knock down price say 5-6mills. And u know what, Lindegaard is not even fit to lace his boots.

    JaseyC:

    This is what i think should be the starting lineup for our 2011/2012 Season. It has the players i want to buy (in bold) and how much they cost.

                Higuain             Rooney

                           Sneijder

    Nani                                        Valencia

                           Fletcher

    Evra        Ferdinand      Vidic        Rafael 

             Lloris or Akinfeev or De Gea

     

    Higuain - £40m

    Sneijder - £30m

    Lloris/Akinfeev/De Gea - All £10m (I only want one of these 3 keepers - you can decide which one)

     

    Higuain????  Really?  For 40M????

    Uncas:

    Someone please reassure me that the player in this picture:

    http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11667_6484242,00.html

    Is the same player is the guy in this pic....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Defour

    It's irrelvent to my post because although I do rate him, I wouldn't buy him...

    Im sure there will be more of an issue with the 25 player squad limitations next season too, but Ive not worked it out yet so don't know for sure...

    But to stick a team up:

                         De Gea

    Rafael   Ferdinand   Vidic   Evra

                         Fletcher

          Anderson             Hamsik

    Nani                                   Obertan

                         Rooney

    With Hernandez/Berbatov coming in for Anderson for some of the "easier" games, and to be honest Valencia would probably get the nod over Obertan, I just happen to like my wingers to play like forwards in a 4-3-3, plus I prefer Nani on the right.

    cant get in the link for some reason, anyway, defour suits our style much better than hamsik.

    as for players who will have to be listed, next year is not a problem at all. leaving vds and kuz who will be replaced by two goalies, we have: nev, scholes, giggs, owen and hargo who will prob leave/retire, plus a place we already have. so 6 places, and only smalling, cleverley and obertan will have to be registered. in two years we have a different story though.
