How Louis Van Gaal Can Get The Fans Back Onside

Manchester United have a squad capable of winning the Premier League. That was evident at the start of the season and, for any doubters, the fact that £258 million more had been spent on improving the squad which finished fourth the season before, should have confirmed it. So what has happened? Injuries? Every team has …

The Mourinho To Man U Rumours Are A Little Much And Highly Disrespectful to LVG

Even though Louis Van Gaal has been managing his Manchester United side through a fairly decent run of results in the past few weeks- he has 5 wins, 2 ties and 1 loss in January and February. He did however have to endure a morale-killing home-loss to Southampton in the League and before that in …

Not All Of Van Gaal’s Reign Has Been Negative

I have been asked to write an article about any positive influence had on Manchester United since the appointment of Louis van Gaal as manager.

United Attack Comes To Life Vs Newcastle But Defense Starts To Fail

Well last night at St James Park vs Steve McClaren’s resurgent Newcastle, Man United did what they have not done so far this season – they scored in the first half. Not only did they score in the first stanza but they managed to score twice through Wayne Rooney’s early penalty and then the captain …

King Louis’ Stay of Execution

It would seem as though Louis van Gaal will not be leaving Manchester United in the near future. He will continue to dine on Chinese delicacies at Wings and hold press conferences at Carrington.

Could United’s Next 4 Games Prove Pivotal For LVG

Manchester United are on a terrible run of only 3 wins in 13 games and they are in danger of going winless for 6 games in a row for the first time since 1999 (when they went on to win the treble by the way) – but I don’t think that is an option this …

Should Van Gaal Try To Buy A Goal Scorer?

Manchester United have managed to maintain their spot in the Premier League top 4 for much of the season having really only dropped out of the Champions League qualification places this past weekend after they lost to Norwich and Spurs beat Southampton. In fact Spurs are only in 4th on goal difference but it is …

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez Left United Reluctantly

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez would have walked all the way from Mexico, (with a bit of swimming thrown in as well), to England if he had been told that was what he needed to do to play for Manchester United. It was his dream, his one wish in life and, when it came true, he was …

United have improved? Really?

Louis van Gaal has stated that facts prove the team this year is better than the team last year. I won’t go down the road of disputing facts, there can only be one winner there. Whether or not they prove that the team is better than last year is debatable, circumstances have certainly been different. …
