I am... confused. Yes. I am confused by our last couple of days in the transfer window. We got rid of Chicharito for what I think is a lot less than he is worth, brought in a relatively unproven youngster for a lot of money. This after selling Van Persie earlier in the window. So we now have three recognised strikers. Hmmmmmmm.

Yeah, I don't pretend to understand Van Gaal's transfer strategy. I'm not convinced he has one. Last year I didn't either - while I thought you needed a better back four and more steel and creativity in the middle, you bought loads of forwards, and had an unbalanced squad experimenting with odd formations trying to fit Rooney, RVP, Mata, Di Maria and Falcao in the same line-up, and now you've sold three of them, let Janazaj go out on loan and are in need of forwards, and still haven't really addressed the centre-back issue (for me). Plus the fact that you've still got a good keeper is more luck than judgement. Just my take on it.

Smelling has been good so far but we don't have a good partner for him. He's been trying to cover for the weakness of others and it has left us exposed at times.

Smalling and Jones are squad players, I reckon. I could be wrong but I thought Rojo could play as a centre-back and a left-back, and was probably signed with this in mind (he can play at left-back and take some of the pressure off Shaw). I like the look of your new right-back though, Rafael was a weak link.

Poor game interrupted by some good goals. United were OK. Liverpool were awful.
