United set to switch tactics

Set to tinker with tactics
Set to tinker with tactics next season

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he may change his tactics next season. The 4-4-3 has served him well over the past few seasons and have proved supremely successful in the winning of numerous trophies.

This system has won three Premier League titles in a row and also a Champions League. It also got us to the Champions League final last season. With Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit comes a new start. I believe the 4-4-3 was adapted to suit the style of the Portuguese winger and now with him moving on it could bring a new approach.

So a move to 4-4-2 next season could be possible. The idea of  ‘a more rigid 4-4-2’ as Sir Alex puts it could mean an exciting change to the way we play next season. I really hope Wayne Rooney finally gets a good run as a centre forward next season, instead of the wing role he filled so admirably in the past few seasons.

Rooney has doubled up as a winger, but this could be the season that the England international finally nails down the position of centre forward. Rooney and new boy Michael Owen can again forged a productive partnership, just like they did for England. Throw in the ‘Mercurial’ Dimitar Berbatov and the potential of young Italian Federico Macheda and we have a really exciting strikeforce for next season.
