Other Transfer News – Big transfers from my rivals in this window, as I have said Arsenal have signed Marek Hamšík for 24.5 million and Gregory van der Wiel for 20 million. Man City have just signed Stevan Jovetić for 13.75 million.
League Cup – Semi Final 1st Leg – Liverpool A

4-5-1
Line Up - Anders Lindegaard, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidić, Patrice Evra, Paul Pogba, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley, Nani, Mario Götze, Javier Hernández
Subs Used – Ryan Giggs, Anderson, Ashley Young

I decided to stick with the same 11 that did the job against Arsenal and it paid off as I destroyed Liverpool 0-5 at Anfield. Hernández put United in the lead after 7 minutes with a tidy finish. Pogba then scored a screamer from the edge of the area on 16 minutes. It was then Götze turn to score from outside the box on 33 minutes. An error in the box allowed Hernández to score and then Hernández completed his hat trick in the 73 minute. The only down side was that Vidić was sent off for a professional foul in the 83 minute.
Transfer News - Barcelona have just offered 19.75 million for Evra. Now if I accept I will only have Fábio in the first team squad who is a LB. I do have a couple of players who can play LB but CB is their main position such as Evans and Sean McGinty. I also have a left back regan but he is only 16.

I have looked around and I can sign Jordi Alba for 19 million as a direct replacement.

I think I know what I will do but does anybody have any thought?
19.75 million for Evra who must be in his 30's now is a no brainer to be honest. If you can bring in Alba for the same price then it's got to be worth a shot. You won't get an offer like that for Evra again.

That was my thinking :)
League Game – Blackburn A

4-5-1
Line Up - Anders Lindegaard, Kyle Walker, Jonny Evans, Phil Jones, Fábio, Paul Pogba, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley, Nani, Mario Götze, Javier Hernández
Subs Used – Chris Smalling, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney

A quiet game with Nani scoring the only goal. Kyle Walker also made his United debut and gave a good performance. A bit of bad news was that Götze got injured.
Injury News – Götze out for 3 weeks.
Transfer News – I have accepted Barcelona offer for Evra. I have also inquired about Jordi Alba and Valencia wanted 19 million. I have bid 15 million and they accepted. Alba wanted around 25000 a week (Evra is in 75000 a week). I will wait and see if he accepts.
League Game – Tottenham H

4-4-2
Line Up - David de Gea, Rafael, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidić, Fábio, Nani, Paul Pogba, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Javier Hernández, Wayne Rooney
Subs Used – Chris Smalling, Ryan Giggs, Carlos Fierro

A frustrating 1-1 draw. Rooney scored for United
Other Transfer News – Man City signed Ezequiel Lavezzi for 12.75 million and John Heitinga for 12 million.
League Game – Fulham H

4-4-2
Line Up - David de Gea, Rafael, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidić, Fábio, Nani, Paul Pogba, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Javier Hernández, Wayne Rooney
Subs Used – Chris Smalling, Danny Welbeck, Carlos Fierro

Went behind after 25 seconds when Boselli scored but then goals from Hernández and Nani and then an own goal gave me a 3-1 win. A bit of bad news was that Vidić got injured.
Injury News - Vidić out for 4 weeks.
Transfer News – Evra completed his move to Barcelona. I wish Evra all the best and he has been a great servant for United over the years. I would have been happy to keep Evra at United but with that kind of money offered I decided to cash in as Evra is 31 and only has maybe 3-4 season left in him at the most.

Injury News – Giggs is out for 2 weeks, Owen 4 Weeks and Carrick 3 weeks.

Great Minds think alike ! :) I think Jan would be much better you get a good price in Jan .. have a look at L cristeig as a back up for Pogba then..


I might do but was thinking of maybe Ryan Tunnicliffe or Oliver Norwood

Norwood is a very good central midfield player, I had him for my Oldham team, very good ball winner.

Well..... ARE YOU SERIOUS ??? You are comparing his performances for an Oldham team with Manutd ? He is just not good enough for a top 4 club... that's a fact.. he also keeps picking up injuries.
