i have to comment a move that shocked me , that SAF made over weekend...

i mean - ok, he put all 4 of them after we'd scored the 4th,and most of us were thinking the match had been won...

but then, after they scored 2 , and rooney being shown the yellow and looking very nervous, i thought he would take him off and put a central midflielder cos it was bloody obvious that only 2 men can't control the midflield , and that they were constantly cruising around our box, he decides to make a midfielder for midfielder change....i was,like WTF ???? and in fact he introduced a slower and less aggressive player ???

strange is all i can say - we could have finished with sheasy-anderson-carrick midfield (or giggs ) - and roo-ron-tev, or tev-ron-berba attack....

your thoughts - btw - if this has already been said,you can merge it with other thread

your spot on ! and whenever rooney gets a yellow card for something crazy he should be substituted immediatly because the majority of the time he will go on to get sent off.

surely rooney has to mature to the point that he can get a yellow and not get sent off?

if im being honest i can't remember them constantly cruising round our box as i thought all 3 of their goals were easily avoidable and mostly out of the blue.(although i was a wee bit drunk)....

they weren't actually cruising as such but they avoided our midfield with simple one-two's

Rooney should control his anger when he gets a card. Sometimes that can cost the whole team when playing important games such as derby matches in the premier league or knock-out matches in the champions league.

I don't think this was really worthy of a whole thread. In every match there are subs that you maybe don't agree with, this should be in the match day thread.
At the end of the day Sir Alex is a 4-4-2 manager so you just have to accept it.

lol - what does this have to do with my question...my question is - "why did he opt for 4-2-4 when it was bloody obvious that only 2 players can't hold the midfield together "

It has been strange to observe that for a long time now. He generally replaces Nani with Tevez which looks strange since then we have 3 strikers and ronaldo on the pitch, which i am sure is not whats needed everytime but that is one time where he can try them out.

I am sure a manager of his experience knows he cannot possibly play all 4 of them together, not without giving goals away (not that i am questioning his understanding of the game would be very silly of me) but more of the necessity of giving tevez some playing time.

Some of his substitution have been questionable but if there is someone who can prove us worng then it is SAF.

Since the 2005/2006 campaign, He has only gotten two bookings in one match, and that was in the Villareal on September 14, while he has gotten 42 yellows (for both club and country) and 1 red (which English fans might remember;) ). I think Wayne knows how to play with a booking.

(Not counting the pre-season match last year which was a complete travesty of a red card.)
