interested to hear peoples thoughts on the Madrid game.
what team would u play?
what would u settle for?
how do u stop Ronaldo?
Madrid have been woeful this season & are there for the taking.
so id like to see utd be fairly attacking.
they have defended very poorly this season & u can get a lot of success with your attack.
I think u should go for the win as they are in bad form.
but what would u settle for. id say even a loss by 1 goal would be a decent result. id expect u to easily over turn that at OT.
how to stop Ronaldo? do u isolate him? get someone like jones to man mark him?
double up on him? or just play your normal game?
I guess the positions to decide our CB. pick 2 from vidic,rio & evans.
which 2 out of wellbeck & rooney or do u pick both.
I guess both wide positions are up for grabs.
along with who partners carrick.
I`m not saying that utd shouldn`t try and win the first leg just that a narrow defeat wouldn`t be the end of the world and that probably the worst result - apart from a heavy defeat - would be a scoreless draw.
Fergie will most likely go with the same tactics as he did yesterday with Jones or Carrick stopping the ball getting to Ronaldo, another option is to get tight on the players who supply him, I just hope Rio is not picked, too slow now.
I imagine team will be
Rafael, Vidic, Smalling or Evans, Evra.
Valencia or Wellbeck, Carrick, Jones or Anderson, Nani.
We need to go for the win, as a draw leaves it a bit bum squeeky time in next leg, we have to push them back and hope our defence can cope, which should be the case if they are having to defend hard.
