Chris Millar: St Johnstone midfielder wants to strike the right balance against

The SPL side will be looking to improve on last season's 3-1 aggregate defeat by Turkish outfit Eskisehirspor when they travel to Norway for the first leg of the second qualifying round.

Millar said: "When we went to Turkey we gave them too much respect and we sat in too much.

"Obviously you have got to respect they are a very good side and they'll be looking to score.

"But there will be chances to catch them on the counter-attack.

"I think we have got to strike the balance between not being over-cautious but not being over-cavalier and leaving ourselves exposed."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
