Anyone else think we should play these 4 together more often. They've torn Spurs to shreds in the second half with all 4 linking up and creating chances.

What do you think? I'd especially like us to give it a go against Arsenals very dodgy defense in the CL.

I don't.

We've always played with two wingers, playing with three
strikers and one winger would leave us two places, considering
we play with a goalie and a back four. That would mean we
would be playing with only one CM.

Rooney can play at Winger as well as anyone. He would destroy Arsenal from the Left wing.

I'd also like to see it used more, but definitely not against Arsenal. Not with their counter-attacking threat. I'd much rather see Park and Anderson start and give us some support battling at the back.

You see him flow onto the left wing as he does roam a lot but he's
still a striker.
He's played and started on the left/right wing before and played VERY well. People seem to think that because he's traditionally considered a striker that he must stay there. he's versatile enough to play on the wing and IMO it helps the team even more when he's there.

For example:

Ronaldo-Berba-Tevez-Rooney > Ronaldo-Berba-Rooney-Park/Nani/Other

JMO, but Rooney on the Left helps the team.

maybe start with berba rooney and ronaldo, with tevez coming on as an impact sub, like today.

i would love to see rooney on the left more though, he always seems to perform better, whenever he's there.

this thread is a failed attempt to include tevez into a group of talented players, and give him more credit than he deserves for today's result.

Playing Rooney on the left wing would be putting his talent to waste. If you want to incorporate Tevez into the lineup, just go with Rooney Tevez up front.

I think it could work.

But I just don't see it happening aginst Arsenal next week.
All 4 couldn't possibly start and we would need 1 of them on the bench as an impact sub - maybe Tevez.

As for Rooney's talent being wasted on the left side..!
I think Rooney shows his talent wherever he plays and on the left side today he was Fantastic.
He was deservedly chosen MOTM and he is just so gifted it's unreal.

Rooney is our most important player.:)

Rooney as a striker > Rooney as a winger

But from a team point of view,

Ronaldo-Berba-Tevez-Rooney > Ronaldo-Berba-Rooney-Park/Nani/Other

This is because Rooney as a left winger is better than any other left wingers we have currently.

I also think this thread is a knee jerk reaction.

Fergie could have put Mike Phelan on the pitch, if we'd have
won the match you would see Phelan next to Berbatov, Ronaldo
and Rooney's names.

I cant see it happening, the fact is although I think rooney could do a good job on the left wing we would still be wasting his talents as he is a far better striker.

WE can do it often, as can you spot the different when Rooney on the left rather than Nani.......Yesterday, I thought SAF might get fed up with Nani relax style...

Why not ?

god Im so sick of these tevez belittlers, for ****s sake I guarantee you that we would be a better team with tevez in the lineup instead of a park, a nani, or whoever you want to put at left wing, you people act like the man is ******* league one material. The fact is yes, thirty million is too much for him, but he is still a top player.
