Default Speaking of United possibly needing a creative attacking midfielder in the near future.

Seems Van Der Vaart may not be happy in Madrid and may want out in the summer. Could he be the answer to our prayers?

two excellent players but we'd need some money on top of that deal as well

we would have to sacrifice some width or a striker to fit them in

Never going to happen. VDV isn't even that good enough for United.

the last thing we need is a midfielder.

especially when we have two strikers who love to play like attacking midfielders anyway.

rooney, berbs and the new midfielder all threading balls through to no one.

To be fair, when playing with Berbatov, Rooney was pushing further forward before his injury. Also I think poossibly a midfielder breaking late into the box might add summat to us as a team. A midfielder playing perhaps as giggs has recently been might also be a good thing and Ryan cannot go on forever. Just some thoughts off the top of my head.

if anything we need a striker to play at the top of our forward three. ands thats at a push because really it would mean ronaldo moving into the midfield three.

so basically we have deep lying midfielders who hold the team together (carrick, anderson, fletcher and hargreaves) -2 from 4-

then four players in a free role (ronaldo, rooney, berbs, tevez)


usually we play 3 of them and put another player in midfield (park, giggs, etc)

the last thing we need is a attacking midfielders because our three starting forwards(ronnie,rooney, berbs) all play as forwards/attacking midfielders anyway.
its honestly the last thing we need.
take modric/deco for instance. it would be a disaster.

he's a classy player, but he's already talked balls about having no desire to play for us & w*****g himself silly about Madrid.

He's also less a player likely to burst past the attackers or arrive late which, imo, is what we'd need. More a playmaker behind the strikers / ahead of the midfield & sitting.

Anyone know anything about Andreas Holzl ? Other than reading the odd report about him I've not seen him live.

Ubiquitous YouTube link below... quite an array of finishes - headers, left & right peg hits & a sublime back heel.
