#37629 Godman : 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.

Did you get Alba ?
You can buy Romario and Nika Kravesiki, both are right backs but very young, just retrain him for Left back and central defence and you will be covered in full back positions for around a decade.

BUt I seriously think you should try and get in a decent Defensive midfielder, looks very weak area.
I think you must get either Kwadwo Asamoah, casemiro or Mvilla to be almost perfect !!
Hi romiljain, at the moment Alba is considering the offer. With regards to the DMC position I know that I am short but I have Pogba (who has come on leaps and bounds this year), Fletcher and also Jones. Plus ANderson could also do a job in that role if necessary.
Ya, Pogba is coming good, but Fletcher is getting older and you obviously will need Jones at the CB position...and personally I think you should sell Anderson ... he is just above average player not that great.. so going forward, it will be a trouble...

Hence, I think its better to buy now, as these players will be getting expensive by the minute... If you can get a decent price for anderson, replace him with Glyfi S from Hoffeinham.... great from set pieces and will have atleast 1 assist per game !


On another note, I think you should cut off the dead weight from the reserves and U18 side and stock with promising players...

Would also like to know how is Welbeck progessing and what's your plan going forward ? I mean you already have many strikers.. and since Welbeck is 21+, do you plan to keep him or sell him at profit now ?
Hi romiljain at the moment I am happy with how Anderson is performing. Fletcher still has at least 6 season left in him and Jones can play in any 4 positions (DC, RB, MC or DMC) with great affect.

Jones is now my first choice centre back with Vidić but if I need to I can and have played Jones In midfield. I have Smalling and Evans who slot into the defence so I believe I am covered for the time being. If I need to invest I will first look at my academy/reserve players and if they are not up to scratch I will go into the market.

I have looked at Gylfi Sigurðsson and he his very good but he plays in the AMC role and I all ready have Hazard and Götze so I am not looking to fill in that position at the moment.

One of the bonus with Anderson is that he is versatile (he has played different roles in my team such as Ball Winning Midfielder, Deep Lying Playmaker, Advanced Playmaker and Box-2-Box) plus he never moans when I rotate my midfield. He also gets assists with his corner/free kick taking abilities.

I will be doing exactly that with my reserves and academy at the end of the season. As I have a few players who will never play in the first team.

Welbeck is going well. At the moment he is my 3rd choice striker (in order they are Hernández, Rooney, Welbeck, Macheda, Fierro and Keane). He has not started many games this season as I have been playing one up front and Hernández has been on fire. I will keep hold of him next year thats for sure plus he can play out wide which is good.
League Cup – Semi Final 2nd Leg – Liverpool A

4-5-1
Line Up - David de Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Sean McGinty, Mats Moller Daehli, Paul Pogba, Oliver Norwood, Adnan Januzaj, Alvaro Vadillo, Danny Welbeck
Subs Used – Carlos Fierro, Will Keane, Mateo Kovacic

After the first game I could afford to rest a lot of players and it showed as I lost the game 1-0 but won 1-5 overall. So I am into the Final against Everton who beat Man City 2-1 over two legs.
Transfer News – Completed the signing of Jordi Alba for 15 million pounds. He will take over the number 3 shirt.
Loving the story mate, keep it up!
I've just started a new season with United myself, had a very succesful pre-season and managed to buy Gotze and Mbaye Niang. Looking forward to the seaon ahead now :)
Jordi Alba - very good transfer! good job, keep it up

Thanks, I was surprised Velencia accepted such a low offer for a top player.
