United - Gathering Information

An unlikely alliance, formed when Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson crossed swords in the Premier League, could prove beneficial to Manchester United as we contemplate that Champions League Final date with Barcelona.

In a friendship formed amongst the combative world of the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson, following our win last night, openly admitted that he will be talking to Jose Mourinho with a view to picking his brains on the threat Barcelona may present.

Now whilst we`d love to be able to listen in on the conversation, Sir Alex was also quick to point out that Jose will not be his only port of call when it comes to information gathering with Sir Alex commenting, last night,

"I speak to him (Jose) quite a lot. His experiences with Real Madrid could be useful. You always take any information angled in that way and Jose is very helpful."

"But Real are a different team from us and we will also depend on our own knowledge of Barcelona."

"It`s not as if we haven`t seen them before. We`ve watched them many, many times this season."

"I don`t think we should be going to Wembley lacking on confidence."

"We can`t be frightened out of our skins. We`ve got to find a solution to playing against them."


We`re confident that Sir Alex can not only come up with a plan to stop Barcelona but also one that will see us take the trophy!

Not bad to tell u the truth,he has a plan and its very effective,it may be boring but if it gets us the trophy I don't think anyone will be complaining.We could also use the same plan as we used against them at the Camp Nou,it was more or less the same.I would say use Hernandez as a lone striker and play Rooney as a CM as he has the engine,passing skills,a good footballing brain and even discipline to disrupt their play I just hope he does not lose his head!!!

A managerial dream team there, just imagine, Mourinho and Fergie, it could only take a dodgy refereeing decision to prevent their plan coming to fruitition. Rooney has the all the attribute of a great CM but I feel he should be playing just behind Hernandez, solely to be a distraction for the Barca players whilst Hernandez makes his runs unnoticed and, if he can cope with the pressure, a playmaker. I think the real area of complication is the Central Midfield and whether Park and all his industry should get the nod over Nani or whether he should play in the centre? In the centre of the park do we go for ditribution, industry or a mixture? I would like to see us adopt the 4-4-1-1 we've been using this season rather than play Barca's 4-3-3 system like we tried in 2009.

4-4-1-1 with, as famousno7 says, hernandez up front rooney behind. hopefully we will have the industry and workmanship of fletcher in the centre, one of nani and valencia on the flanks,(I'd like both but its barca so..). Barca are too used to teams sitting back and letting them have the ball their defence is not the best so I can see Hernandez' pace and movement pulling puyol and pique apart and creating space for rooney to run into. If our midfielders put in an almighty shift and our full backs do not get lost further up field I think we could do Barca on the night.
