RE: [Premier League] Cardiff vs, Manchester Utd (22/12/18)
I don't expect OGS to make too many changes that are revolutionary but I expect to see either 433 or 4231 and a resurrection of 4-4-2.
I think Ole will try and go with a balanced side but of course blend in players that need a clean slate with players that are "regulars".
But it's way to early to make guesses. I'd rather OGS was his own man rather than a Fergie or Pep wannabe.

The most important things are:
- Desire, positivity, confidence and being ruthless.
- Intensity, starting quick, peppering Cardiff with shots.
- Pressing, sprinting, keeping the width and putting in a real shift.

I'd love to see:

DDG
Dalot Bailly Lindelof Shaw
Fred Herrera
Mata Pogba Martial
Rashford

Subs: Romero, Young,Rojo, Matic,Perreira, Fellaini, Lingard.

Haven't looked so forward to a United game in years. I wish it was at Old Trafford, but it is what it is.

I read somewhere that Ole favors 4-2-3-1, although we can't play a 2-man midfield with our options. Anyway, I think he will play it safe now and go with:
DDG - Young, Bailly, Smalling, Shaw - Matic, Pogba - Mata, Lingard, Martial - Rashford

Excited for our match, going to try to sneak a watch during our early family Christmas dinner with the in-laws. I feel dirty that I'm rooting for City to pull a goal or 2 back vs Palace to keep up with Pool...

So Ole did go with a 3 man midfield. Pleasantly surprised at that, although I would have gone with Andreas or Fred instead of Herrera. The front 3 is what it should be right now. Time for Jesse to step up and be the player he was last season.

I don't want to get too ahead of myself, but Chelsea dropping points is very good for us. Gives us a tiny hope of making up the difference.

Unfortunately, City also dropped points and that put the scum 4 points clear.

Hoping for a positive, energetic outing. Press, pass, move quickly, put on a good effort and we'll win.

Beauty of a free kick from 30 yards, 1-0 3 mins in.

Watching nbc sports feed until I have to go to airplane mode. Missed the goal but hopefully a harbinger or a new attacking ethos for United!

Great goal by Rashford!

I can forgive Ole for playing Jones and Matic but he'll quickly learn there not capable at this level.

Who knows, maybe Jones has a revival under Ole. And Matic should be better if he's not playing 90 minutes twice a week. Rotate and give the players confidence and we'll see better play out of everyone.
