Man United Fans Comment: Rooney to Warm the Bench

Rooney Manchester UnitedHaving signed Colombian international Radamel Falcao from Monaco on deadline day, Manchester United now have one of the best strike-force in the world.
Despite needing reinforcements in other departments, the Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal was more interested in strengthening attack.
Out went Danny and Chicharito and in came Falcao to join Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
Even if Van Gaal changes the formation, there is nothing to suggest that Rooney Rvp and Falcao will all start.
However, for now we have seen no signs that Louis van Gaal is going to change the 3-4-1-2 system he has been running successfully over the years and clearly believes in it.
With players like Mata and Di Maria more than capable of playing in the whole behind the strikers, one of the three strikers will have to warm the bench once all of them are fit. RvP is injured for now but the dilemma will start once he returns.
There is no doubt that in terms of goal scoring, Radamel Falcao is better than the duo with more killer instinct and fear factor. His record speaks out lout about his quality of banging the ball in the net and must start.
Now Van Gaal has to choose between players whom he made the captain of Netherlands and the captain of Manchester United but the Dutch star is clearly the better striker and hence Wayne Rooney should warm the bench even though he wears the skipper’s armband.
In your Opinion, who should start upfront for Man United?

    The absence of our beloved Rooney shall only bring failure in Manchester united,I calk him an engine and without this engine even though Falcao is around he won’t shine,give our captain every game to start and to finish 90 mins.

    That analysis is too simplistic for me. Firstly, all 3 certainly can start, with Rooney playing the No.10 role as he did for much of last season and before. Secondly, they are very different players. Falcoa is an out and out striker, a box predator, but he contributes little in terms of build-up or outside the box play. Rooney, on the other hand, is a far more dynamic striker who comes deep, goes wide and generally is heavily involved in the play. Considering Rooney has hardly played as a lead striker in the last 2 seasons his goals/game record is admirable when compared to Flacao and RVP. Of the 3 he is by far the best footballer. It will all depend on partnerships and what LVG wants from his set-up etc etc but there will be plenty of room for all 3 strikers to get game time.

    Well, for me , we can’t judge so fast like that , I think we still need falcao, to bench so that he can adapt to our way of play because these is he first seaoson in england , I think we can stil use 442 for now , these best way of playing in england , iam saying these because you can’t compare way of playing in england with any were in the wrld , let advice lvg to use these information its wil be hard for him to use 3 at back in england I knw what iam saying because english league is real making progresive in every season you can’t compare last seaoson with these curent season every team is improve
