Hey Reds fans, this is my first post. Im a long time United supporter from Wollongong in Australia and I cop alot of flack from my mates down here as they are mostly Chelski, Liver-poo and ***'n'balls supporters... so hopefully we'll run away with the lot this season so I can really give them some stick about it... for a whole year!
My best XI
Van Der Sar
Rafael Vida Rio Evra
Subs: Berba, Scholes, Nani, Anderson, Fletch, Neville, Evans
Van der Sar, Nev, Rio, Vida, Evra, Park, Scholesey, Carrick, Ron, Wazza, Tevez
GK-Edwin Van Der Sar
Subs- Foster, Neville, O'Shea, Tevez,Nani, Scholes
Brown Vidic Evans O'Shea
Ronaldo Fletcher Carrick Park
Rafael Vidic Ferdinand Evra
Nani Scoles Ronaldo

GK - Ben Foster
Defence - Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra.
Midfield - Park, Hargreaves, Anderson, Ronaldo.
Forwards - Rooney/Tevez, Berbatov.
Subs - Giggs, Scoles, Brown, VDS, Tevez/Rooney, Carrick, Tosic.
Ben Foster is a great keeper and will do very well when VDS finally hangs up
Rafael may be a bit young but he has the pace and ability to equal Evra on
the right side. I feel this is where we lack some depth, and Rafael can fill
that void. Neville is great, has tons of experience but lacks pace and skill in
this fast paced league we are now in. He still has a place, but not on the wing
like he used to be. He will be like Giggs and Scoles great subs when experience
Ferdinand and Vidic in the centre is an unbeatable duo. The best in the
world. And with Evra to complete the four we have a solid defence with
attacking power when needed.
The midfield is a difficult one, as we have so many excellent players to
fill the gaps. But for my main four, Park and Ronaldo on the wings, these two
are great for their pace and skill. They are interchangeable and can switch
when they have to. And with the full backs to support them they can dominate
In the centre a fit Owen Hargreaves, one of the best all round midfielders
in the world. And Anderson, who if he can play to his full potential can be a
great player, he is strong, determined, powerful and has skill (being Brazilian
helps). With these tow power houses holding the centre the midfield is ours.
Berbatov has yet to find his form, but when he does he will be such a
threat in the box. He is a natural 18-yard predator.
Rooney or Tevez? That is the real question, similar styles, both
passionate, both determined, both strong, who can separate them? We all saw last season that can work together, even with similar styles of play.
The Subs - (Oh...wish we could have the baby-faced assassin again). But the bench is filled with experience and youth. Giggs, Scholes and VDS when experience is needed to calm the troops and show them how the old school do it.
Brown, to beef up the defence when needed, a good all round defender who can play centre and full back positions (Hurry up and heal!!!).
Carrick to help the midfield out. (Carrick and Hargreaves in the centre for England...watch out Stevie and Frankie).
Rooney or Tevez depending which one is left out (leave that to the manager to decide).
And Tosic, if we can beef him up to handle the english league, whoa! With his pace and skill I'm sure he could mix it up when we need fresh ideas on the pitch (look at Macheda). Let him lose!
Remember its called the PREMIER LEAGUE for a reason...because that is exactly what it is, it is the best league in the world...a premium league where the countries football teams wish they were in and not their "La Liga" or "Serie A".
This team when playing to their FULL potential....UNBEATABLE!!! Watch out world...here we come again!!!
brown ferdinand vidic evra
fletcher scholes giggs
rooney berbatov ronaldo
Wes Brown Rio Vidic Evra
Ronaldo Carrick Anderson Giggs
Subs: EvDS, Tevez, Rafael, Fabio, Scholes, J. Evans., Park.
Injury permitting if not Rafael replaces Wes.
Neville Ferdinand Vida Evra
Ronny Carrick Scholesy Giggsy
Subs: Foster; Rafael, Evans; Fletcher, Anderson, Nani; Tevez
I think this is the team which shoul plays in CL Final...
I certained that United could reach The Roma Final....
VDS, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Scholes, Ronaldo, Tevez, Berbatov, Rooney
Subs: Foster, Rafael, Evans, Giggs, Anderson, Fletcher, Macheda,
I would have a 3-4-3 formation with Rooney dropping back at times to help the midfield.
GK : Van Der Sar
RB : G. Neville
LB : P. Evra
RCB : N. Vidic
LCB : R. Ferdinand
LM : R. Giggs
RM : C. Ronaldo
CDM : M. Carrick
CAM : P. Scholes
RS : W. Rooney
LS : C. Tevez
my team would consist of youth and experiance because i think you need youth on your side as much as you need experiance
goalkeeper = foster i chose foster because i think now he is a better goalkeeper then vds on most days
right back = rafael i chose rafael because he is more adapt to a right back position these days then othes defend but also run down the wing. also i think he is the best brazilian in the premiership
left back = evra i chose evra because i think he is the worlds best left back and when he does not play it shows in the team
centre defenders = vidic and ferdinand i chose these because they are a rock in our defence and on most days no one can get past them
right midfield = ronaldo i chose ronaldo because he is the worlds best player and the speed of him is just amazing
left midfield = giggs i chose giggs because after all these years he can still play there and play well at the same time
centre midfields = anderson and carrick i chose these because carrick can put balls in to anywhere on the pitch and from some distance. anderson on the other hand has pace and skill not scarred to dive into a tackle.
strikers = rooney and tevez i chose these two because play more or less the same way so they both understand what the other one wants like where does he want the ball
subs = van der sar brown nani berbatov macheda hargreaves and evans
i chose these subs because there is a mixture of each position plus there is a supersub in macheda
GK Van der Sar
Subs : Foster, Rafael, Fletcher, Park, Berbatov, Scholes, Evans
