As the pre-season ends with 3 victories out of 4 against Club America, San Jose Earthquakes, FC Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain, Louis van Gaal finally seems to get a hang of the United squad. A 4-3-3 formation is the likeliest with Memphis Depay occupying the No. 10 position, just behind Rooney. With the addition of new players like Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero, experience and speed are sure to come. We've witnessed glimpses of it during the tour. And with LvG on the hunt for a 'surprise' player, with the speed and ability to turn the odds of any match in the team's favour, success is imminent in the 2015-16 campaign. Though the last match didn't end quite as well as we wanted, the Premier League opener against Spurs is surely the all-important match.
I am really satisfied about the performance. Yeah, we lose, but maybe that is also good because last year we won everything [on tour] and then we lost the first match in the Premier League. Now the sequence is a little bit different. But I am not superstitious.
Our U-21 players are the ones who benefited from the tour as they've had ore first team experience. And adding to this, our injury list is empty as of now. So, we can definitely look forward to starting the season pretty well as compared to last season. If we have a good start, our confidence will be high and the rest of the season should go well.
The new season also marks the end of an era as the kits are gonna be made by Adidas from now on. So, Thank you Nike for all the fabulous kits over the years!
