Topic: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

Is the manchester united defence a bigger concern than the desperate form of Wayne Rooney?

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

its just around the start of the season dude, things might change in a while and they are already no. 2 on the league table after arsenal lost the last home match against west bromwich

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

okay things might change but they have conceded 9th goal of the season against bolton, now this comes from a team who conceded only 22 and 24 goals in entire 2008 and 2009 premier league, having same defenders, which way are they heading now

Ferdinand is expected to be back for champions league match against valencia, which Ferguson felt was sufficiently important to miss last week's Carling Cup tie against Scunthorpe so this might bring a positive change

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

Rio Ferdinand's absence is clearly not helping man united here, but he was also missing when United went 14 games without conceding a goal during the mid-winter of the 2008-09 campaign

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

The problem for Ferguson is a balance between keeping faith with a player who was so outstanding last season and getting the most from a team for whom Rooney is current third on the list of in-form strikers, behind Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

Ferguson must decide what to do with Wayne Rooney, few can understand the pressures Rooney has to operate under, he needs a complete break to give his body and mind a chance to recover from the physical and emotional trauma he has been through recently.

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

Antonio Valencia's long-term injury and  Ryan Giggs absenece also deny Ferguson the option of using Rooney as a lone striker flanked by two quick wingers, as he did so effectively last term. As an aside, Rooney's form is poor at the moment but surely cannot be described as desperate.

Re: What is more of concern for Manchester united to this point?

the brutal truth is that they have now conceded nine goals in five Premier League games even the basement boys Everton have done better than that, while Sir Alex Ferguson's men are still to record an away win in three attempts.

We need Rio back to fitness again & Evra back on form. If we get that then we should be okay. The key games are going to be against Chelsea lets hope we get some luck go our way this season against Chelsea. They got all the luck in both games which proved crucial in the end last season
