Manchester United Message Board
Was wondering people's opinions on tomorrow's match.
With Jones injured, the question of how we deal with Ronaldo will be interesting. I don't know if there's a player I'd give the job of marking him to alone, but maybe a combination of attacking players who can track back and pressure him would be effective?
For that, off the top of my head, I'd be looking at Rooney, with Young or Welbeck on the left.
I'm personally just as worried by Di Maria. Ozil, if well marked, can be shut down.
On the one hand, I would like us to be brave, and give Kagawa a chance to do to Real what he has done to Bayern over the last two years - cut through them with limited possession. Rooney on the bench. Welbeck on the left in what seems to be a very well suited playmaking position for him - he will help Evra against Di Maria. Valencia on the right to double up on CR7. Rooney and Nani on for Kagawa and Valencia if we need to go for it. Cleverley to come in on the left if Welbeck runs out of puff. Anderson and Carrick in midfield.
On the other, I can't help but feel that the game would be better managed by playing a tight 3 of Carrick, Anderson (to his left) and Cleverley (to his right) in midfield, 'flanked' by Welbeck, Kagawa/Valencia and RVP up top.

interesting to see if u keep it tight or more attacking. I think they are their for the taken so I hope u play attacking. others think that would be a mistake & they will pick u off on the counter attack.
but I still think u would score far more than them if u attack.
good luck tomorrow. hope u keep the british flag flying because celtic & the gooners are definitely going out.
I strongly think u will have far too much for them & win 3-1.
they have been pretty poor this season & have a awful away record.
u should test their keeper more as he is very poor. makes a lot of mistakes.
