    Yes, because we usually beat Mourinho then win at Southampton and Stoke.

We are too easy to play against when we do not have the ball while not having enough presence further up the pitch to do enough damage often enough, particularly against the better teams.
    Disagree. While we've looked shaky in defense at times i can't remember us being caught on the counter in this formation since it was implemented, which was happening all too often with the other one.

    I am curious to see how it will work against Chelsea.

    Perhaps we will catch each other out. they have had more time using it though.

    penalties it is then.

    Southampton and Stoke had nothing to play for and ManU made wholesale changes.

    City, Middlesboro and Spurs were the games to really take stock of this new formation.

    Middlesboro was the first time we used it and we won. We beat City. Spurs would have beaten us if we had had 12 men, the formation wasn't going to change that.

    Doomed from day one.
    Regardless of which games, we always seem to find a way to avoid getting 80 points.

    And even then, the last time we did it, we only finished in third, I think
