They're stuck in the past and believe this club is better than everybody else. United fans need to realise that things have changed and this club is no better than anybody else. The average manager in the Premier League is in charge for two or so seasons.

I have never ridiculed a team for sacking a manager that is under performing. It would be hilarious for any United fan to comment on other clubs doing this when our club saw success for the vast majority of Sir Alex's reign. Can't comment when your club is not going through the same ****.

The only team I have ever commented on is Real Madrid. They sack a manager after losing to the best team in world football.
I couldnt agree with this more. We had an incredible manager in SAF who held the role for 26 years but times have changed. We laugh at other clubs when they change and sack thier managers but now we're the same. We're like any other top club out there and we're likely to go through managers now as well after a 3-4 year spell if they under achieve. The days of Fergie and Wenger are gone, football has changed and so has our club. If we didnt have Fergie, we'd have been no different than the rest of the clubs.

I cant see how anybody can defend van Gaal. I feel sad about the pressure he has come under but thats the type of pressure you'll feel at any top job in any industry if you arent performing well. Frankly, the only positive thing hes done is bring through youngsters into the first team although thats even arguably down to injuries. He got us into the champions league places last season but thats expected considering he spent like 150m last season. He spent another good 100m or so and this season we've played awful awful football. He cant keep saying its a process, you cannot spend 250m or so pounds and not challenge for the title. It cant take you 18 months to get a club playing the style you want ffs. He has mismanaged the team, comtinued to be so god damn stubborn and simply plays players out of position like he wants to show hes doing some next tactical masterplan.

Seriously if he showed the agression that he has shown in this press conference and made the players translate that on the pitch, then the players should be fired up for the Stoke match and respond. If they dont respond against Stoke, im not talking about losing but if performances from the team is still woeful then its fair to assume that he has lost the players and so therefore his position has become untenable.

LVG: "I wish you a merry Christmas and maybe also a happy new year when I see you."

He said, "maybe". Even he's not confident he'll last until the next year.

Probably looking too much into it though.

I mean you've contributed with the same 'you guys are the worst, you guys are horrible' too. Obviously this is gonna get discussed the most.
That's part of my current gimmick. I'm only trying to be as obnoxious as you guys with these posts, and it seems to be working.

Storming out isn't something you'd do in a perfect press conference. It's childish. Unless the reporters insulted his mother or something, stay put and answer the questions. It doesn't do you any favours if you get in a strop and leave.

Mother****er how would you like it if journos were saying you had been sacked from wherever it is you work? How would your family react? Obviously you don't have the financial cushion LvG does, but it's still his job. He has every right to be pissed.

Correction

David de Gea got us into the Champions League, we would have finished in a Moyes position if it wasn't for him.

Not to mention Liverpool massively declined when Suarez left and Sturridge went on a season long loan to Royal Liverpool University Hospital FC.

I would be really annoyed about those rumours. But still I would try and be the bigger person and not walk out.

Well worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

I don't understand how LVG can possibly continue with this regimented and restricted style of play in the final third? We need movement, it's so obvious.

As soon as that journo said 'What have we done wrong', LvG should have ethered his ass right there and then. Start by shouting 'mother****ing mutt' at him and then go from there.

It worked with Guardiola because he had the players to achieve it as well as their commitment. Meanwhile we have the likes of Rooney and Fellaini trying to do what the likes of Villa and Iniesta did. Never going to work.
