Manchester United vs. LA Galaxy: Live thread

The Louis van Gaal era begins with three at the back.

So, the official first teamsheet of the Louis van Gaal era is as follows:

(3-4-1-2): David de Gea; Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans; Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Darren Fletcher, Luke Shaw; Juan Mata; Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck.

Intriguing. It seems like it could suit everybody involved, particularly the defenders, although the record of three-at-the-back systems in England is not particularly great.

Unfortunately, The Busby Babe lives in London, Paris and Manchester, and so it will be 4am when we start. And I'm writing this from Paris, so it's 5am for me. I'm only up writing this because I was up anyway because I have sleep problems but I'm not planning on staying until the end. We apologise. We will try and get someone in to take care of the other games on the American tour. In the meantime, vent your spleen, fill your boots, and whatever in the comments section.
