That's where he's been playing, more of a CAM role, this year. But that's been behind one striker.
I guess United could go with a diamond 4-4-2, but that would mean going out and getting a true defensive midfielder. Kagawa and Cleverley would back him up, I guess...but the squad rotates a bunch, as everyone knows.
But the best formation IMO this year has been the 4-2-3-1 with Rooney in the center behind RVP. That gives the likes of Kagawa and even Welbeck chance on the wing without having to be the outside option in a 4-4-2. Adding Falcao, who is not a buy for the future by any stretch, would really complicate matters.
I really thought the moves this offseason would be selling Nani and buying a stronger midfielder. After getting buckets of goals with RvP and Rooney in their respective roles, why change that? You have a few more years before you have to start thinking about replacements.
As much as I like Falcao, I don't think this is a smart move. And I was a huge supporter of the RvP buy this season.
