Dropping back?

Dropping back?

Few would have Michael Carrick down as a central defender, although this is something that Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to do this season if needed.

Carrick has been needed as a makeshift central defender during pre-season and with United short of central defenders Sir Alex has hinted that the midfielder could be deployed in such a role this season.

His qualities are better suited to a central midfield role but he also has the defensive capabilities to fill in if and when needed, although you wouldn't want this as a regular thing would you? Not only as this isn't his preferred position but also as it wouldn't see the best of his abilities utilised by United.

Could this be a cunning ploy by Sir Alex to stop his constant back passing

He can't tackle for ***** and can only intercept and he's far from a dominant force in the air, no way can he play as a CB not even a makeshift one, players breeze past him far too easily. We tried him there before when we had injury problems in the past and it cost us the league. Fergie does make some strange tactical choices sometimes. If Fergie feels we need a CB then sign one, don't use makeshift alternatives as they never really work out.

Also, what is our policy in the market nowadays? We're looking to sign players in positions where we're already strong and have an abundance of talent e.g. RVP when we already have Rooney, Hernandez and Welbeck & Moura/Hazard when we already have Nani, Valencia and Young for out wide whilst Kagawa is also capable out wide. Shouldn't we be looking to strengthen where we're either weak, have injury problems or need to add depth namely the fullback and central midfield positions. Why so vocal about our transfer targets also? We've never been so vocal and obvious in the past and due to it we're losing our transfer targets.
