Reds set for 4-4-2

DARREN Fletcher has predicted a more rigid United will be on show this season. With Cristiano Ronaldo now settled in at Real Madrid and Carlos Tevez moving down the road to City, Sir Alex Ferguson has had a bit of adjusting to do this summer. And, according to Fletcher, the outcome is an orthodox 4-4-2 formation that he believes will be good enough to terrorise opposition at home and abroad. "We have always been tight at the back because we have a great defensive record but maybe we have been a little bit too expansive at times," he said. "The ethos of the club is about attacking football. However, you can't be wide open and attacking all the time. "You also have to be disciplined and I think you are going to see a more rigid 4-4-2 formation this season." Is 4-4-2 the way to go for United? Have your say.
