    Another game we will fail to show up for. LvG is great at motivation isn't he?

    1-0 Palace.

    We'll put De Gea up at striker and RvP & Rooney at CB. Falcao and Jones in midfield to lump balls into De Gea.

    They'll score on a double deflection from an 80th minute set piece.

    This won't be boring that's for sure. They have nothing to play for and I can't see Pardew parking the bus. Mind you that could mean they smash us like Everton.

    1-1 or a 1-0 United win. Palace aren't great at home and won't park the bus unlike our previous three opponents.

    How did Rooney play today? 10/10, I take it.

    Horrible game to come into.

    Palace are a terrific counter attacking team with plenty of confidence, especially with Pardew at the help.

    Worst possible game for us bar the rest of the top four. If we don't get our act together I can see us being torn to shreds.

    Surely we can't lose 4 in a row. But we are playing against a rejuvenated Crystal Palace. A "shall" it will be.

    I can write the script now.

    They'll defend in numbers then hit us on the break with the pace they have in the wide attacking areas.

    It'll probably work too on current evidence.

    Van Gaal needs to shake it up a bit. Great when this style works for us but now it's not, it's his job to come up with an alternative. And fast. Keep the opposition guessing.

    Don't know what to predict now. Carrick's missed so bad. He's the real soul of this team (at 34).
    1-2 to us, I hope

    They've scored 0 goals from a counter attack this season, compared to Everton with 5 (2nd best, 1st being City). According to Whoscored that is.

    Zaha is nailed on to score in this one, isn't he?

    (fecking Ronaldo scored another goal)

    Don't know how it'll go. We need to get a goal early. We'll get more and more anxious if that doesn't happen. It's over if Palace scores first.

    Can't see a win at all, draw maybe if Carrick is back but defeat otherwise. Had this one as a defeat prior to today and definitely not changing my mind after that w@nk.

    Hopefully Carrick, Jones and Rojo back 4-4-1-1

    ------------De Gea
    ---Jones Smalling Rojo Blind
    Valencia Carrick Herrera Young
    -------------Rooney
    -----------van Persie

    Dreading this. They'll sit back and hit us on the break with their pace as they know we have no plan B. Another loss.

    We play before Liverpool play next, if we win we can put a lot of pressure on them, however they will be playing a Chelsea that's most likely won the league, so it will be easier. Although It's still in our hands, if Arsenal win against Hull they guarantee top 4 (not like they haven't already) and have a cup final to think about, so hopefully we can capitalise at Old Trafford if we draw or lose to Crystal Palace. If Arsenal lose/draw Hull hopefully move closer to safety, leaving us with an easier fixture on the last day of the season. We are a different team with Carrick and I believe LVG needs an alternative formation when he's not in the team.

    We're dire away from home. We're playing a good counter attacking side. Not confident.

    They have nothing to play for so you'd hope we'd take advantage of that.

    Hopefully 3 losses in a row is a kick up the arse and we start taking our chances... Hopefully Carrick is back too. Shaw goes in if fit, doubt it though. Di Maria doesn't deserve shit after today so even though Young and Mata were meh, they keep their spot. Fellaini has been shite the last few as well so he goes out, RvP in up top and Rooney playing as a 10.

    De Gea
    Valencia Smalling Jones Blind
    Carrick
    Herrera Rooney
    Mata Van Persie Young​

    Thank lord, Liverpool f*cking suck.

    Lets play anti-philosophy. Just boot the ball at Crystal Palace and let them hold possession.

    In the likelihood of a Palace loss tomorrow, they too will be coming into the game on the back of 3 straight losses, and strangely their from before this was about as good as ours.

    This is it just give them the ball, and let them come forward, we may then actually get some gaps.

    Having said that I just can't see Pardew playing anything like West Brom did today, their best hope is to do what Everton did and just be the better team. Zaha will be well up for this game.

    If we were winning game after game then I'd agree. The state we are in right now. Big old MUFC are a trophy to these teams. They'll give it a go.

    Pardew is always a tosser against us as well.

    Between now and the end of the season, start Di Maria on the right wing to see what he's about.

    Get him and Young to hug the touchline. This way, they can link up better with the full backs, have more space run infield and cut in onto their stronger foot or make darting runs in between the opposition full back and centre back.

    I'd like to see:

    De Gea
    Valencia - Smalling - Jones - Shaw
    Carrick
    Di Maria - Herrera - Rooney - Young
    Van Persie
