You will be hard pressed to find a worse Full back performance than his todays.

Still getting accustommed to the league, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt. But woah was he poor.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt Evra's and Vidic's first 6 months were awful. He's also not a natural CB.

Rafa-Smalling-Rojo-Shaw will be the back line next week

hopefully this will get shaw into the team for good...so we can have that full back we saw last year put Januzaj in his pocket

What i hope he snaps out of, is his lacksadaiscal(sp?) demeanor. He was just jogging back at times ffs. Looked lost out there. Atleast make an effort to track runs or close down players.

Our whole left side was exploited due to that.

he is probably more suited to CB

Shaw will offer more going forward as well

Yeah, I saw that too. Maybe, he was tired or the pace of the game was too much? I think van Gaal should have told Di Maria or Blind to double up with him on that side, like Herrera does with Rafa. I hope he does better at CB, can't be much worse than today.

From a Sporting fan

Has been pretty unconvincing. It reminds me of some perfomances as LB for Sporting. Let´s face it, one thing is to play a tournament as LB, another is to play a whole campaign in that position. I reiterate that i think it´s a waste of potencial to play him as LB. It can be a stop-gap solution but nothing more than that. The CB position is where he takes full advantage of his caractheristics.

Not surprising that two years ago after he played a couple of games as LB our managers always put him as CB. I warned that the first real test would be an away fixture.

This is reassuring, I guess. Sounds like he's a much better CB than LB. When Shaw is injured next time, it might be better to put Blind at LB and Carrick in midfield, since it sounds like this is what we should expect from Rojo at LB. Unfortunately, we couldn't use Carrick this time, but next time hopefully we can.

He posted on his Instagram that the injury is nothing serious, so a good chance he will be available for the Arsenal match after the international break.

I've been impressed with and am becoming a big fan of his. I like his passing, ucually picks out a player with a low driven ball, has a good tackle in him (although it can be arratic at times) and has strength to boot.

Hasnt helped that he has a different cb partner every week.

I feel he will improve once he's involved in a settled back four and his English improves.

Thought it was only me that has been impressed, he's been far from perfect, but there is something there. He's had Carrick, Jones, Smalling and McNair all partner him, so it's been a really tough start for him. I'm glad it's not as serious as it seemed, I don't have confidence in Blackett (right now) he's been appalling for the reserves.

We should sell Evans and Smalling, keep Jones but not as a starter, buy 1 or maybe even two new CBs. That way his injury proneness won't effect us, he's only 22 that's why I didn't group him with Evans and Smalling. If he improves he will have to fight for his spot, otherwise they'll be a time where he'll have to go as well.

I agree with pretty much all that you said apart from the selling Smalling part and keeping Jones.

Although yesterday I said I never wanted to see Smalling in a United shirt again, that was mostly due to my rage at him, I still feel he is our best defender. He's just dumb af and cant pass a ball to save his life. But he'll be good to have as a squad option.

I've given up on Jones and Evans. Evans is a liability, has looked awful without a leader next to him babysitting him and is injury prone to boot.

Jones' body is broken. Too rash and I feel that he will never change his style and overcome his chronic injury problems.

Rojo and a top rcb is the way to go, imo.

Glad to know you're a fan of Rojo's too.

really ?? scratch
What happened with him. I was becoming a fan of that boy in fact. And was kinda excited to watch him again next week. Proabably Blind will play in the defense then and carrick as DM .

Rojo's dad says he's out for 2-3 games, no surgery, should be back for Stoke.

@Lumiere Yeah, he's been poor, he got absolutely wrecked for one of the goals. I'm not saying he's can't become better, but he's definitely having a bad patch of form.

Maybe, I'm still too angry with Smalling, but you're right his performances vs Chelsea and Bayern are better than anything our CBs have done over the past year. I have a feeling Jones and Rojo also don't compliment each other well, too similar. I still like Jones, he had a good start to the season, but if he keeps getting injured then there's no point really.

jones is too senseless. He has ability. But I can see him getting injured frequently in th future as well. The thing might be he takes training sessions/practice matches too seriously and commits to tackles without thinking twice. His attitude is like that and I dont think unless someone really mentor him personally LvG or someone else take care of the psychological side of his game seriously, I dont see him changing.

So between the 2 I too right now will vote for smalling by the Less dumber of the dumb rule. I too like Jones but I am going with smalling. And if we are lucky and get 2 good cbs I will sell them both and also evans. Complete clear out Cool

btw I recently learned Laporte is an United fan Proud Hugely rated. He might be one of our signings I guess.

Laporte is left footed though, also play LB.
i.e. not a candidate for van Gaal to replace Smalling/Jones/Evans at RCB.

If I was you, I'd try to see the upside of the *bleep* and injuries of your CBs - those kids McNair and Blackett will maybe continue to get their chances and maybe even establish themselves as starters. Why not? If they're good enough?
Nothing beats seeing players from your own youth find a place in the team and perform imo.

Yea I know. we need in actuality 2 signings. So 1 LCB and 1 RCB
laporte - lcb
an experienced player with leadership qualities - rcb need not necessarily be world class,
And as far as evans, smalling jones, if i get a chance I will Sell all 3. or may be we can keep 1 of them for cover. Smalling probably.

And its interesting you mentioned this. I am also someone with a similar view. I have huge hopes as far as those 2 kids are concerned as well. So make them the 2nd/ 3rd choice CBs.
and blackett can of course play LB as well.
mcnair-the 2nd choice back up for the expeirenced right footed CB we bring. Proud

I would like to see McNair and Blackett play a run of games first and how they play vs big teams before I can say whether they're the immediate answers to our center back problems. There is also the want of having someone with leadership qualities at the back.

He's a great personality. Always plays with a smile on his face, and always looks excited. Genuinely looks like he loves being at the club.

I like players like this.

His partnership with Smalling looks promising too. Thumbs up

Been very pleased with his start at the club. Along with Smalling, our best defender.

LVG needs to get a grip and play those 2 as our CB pairing (when both fit of course), rather than do the idiotic, random thing by starting Evans ahead of a fully fit smalling at the weekend.

Rojo should be definitely playing instead of Jones. He barely had some bad moments last season and I believe he is on the right path to become a top-class defender. He is strong, he is agile, clever and most important he is very dedicated to the club, or at least this is what it looks like.

I am aware that in the near future there is a possibility that some of our players may face difficult situations and Rojo is one of them especially because he is a young defender at a club with high expectations. I won't be surprised if he will make some mistakes, but I can see in Rojo as an admirable person who concentrates to reach success with the club and prefers to stay more in the shadow than in the spotlight of the media, which may be one of his strengths.

Unlike Di Maria, the guy was more serious, more consistent last season and his last appearance on social media is awesome:

Marcos Red. Born to play for us. Proud
Always loved this guy. He is the player Jones aspires to be. Bailly-Rojo is the way forward. Surprised Jose hasnt tried that combo yet.
Smalling needs to go this summer and we need a new CB. But the thing is its hard. Its hard to spot central defenders who are reliable, probably the hardest position to find an upgrade (Look at City Laughing ). We have been incredibly lucky with Bailly. But who now, thats the question. Virgil Van Dijk looks decent but is he worth the money being quoted? I dont think so.
