The Manchester United Thread XIX Watch
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, speaking to BT Sport: “For me, it [his future] is not an interesting subject because I cannot have any influence on that, I can only work with my players and you can see they are fighting for me. Even after this result the fans were applauding so I cannot say I’m very much concerned. In this football world you never know, but I’m fully confident in the board and my players.
"Will I resign? On the contrary. When the players can give such a performance with a lot of pressure, there is not any reason to resign for me. Maybe the media wants me to but I shall not resign. It's not a question of staying, it's a question of fulfilling my contract."
The next few pages on this thread are going to be quite interesting.

However this performance showed me that the players were playing for the manager and LVG had his usual arrogant style back in the post match interview which suggests he's pretty confidence he's staying. Maybe they might give him the Swansea game as todays performance was decent.
looks like he will be still manager for the swansea game!
At least today he picked the right team....and we did attack and play entertaining football hence the fans applauding him at the end. We were unlucky today but whether we can repeat such performances with van gaal that's what im not really sure about...
Martial had his best game on the wing, continuing to add to Ivanovic's woes but laughable Rooney got motm, you would think he scored a couple and assisted from the pundits analysis.
Woodword will be even more inclined to back LVG on that performance and LVG's post match comments were those of a man who knew he had his boss backing. More assured.

"When the players perform like that, there's no reason for me to resign."
For me he is just delaying the inevitable, if im completely honest im not sure we'll win the FA Cup game v Sheffield United Today was a "good" performance but yet DDG had to save us on 2 occasions and Matic missed a sitter. I still think he should have gone after Norwich, perhaps we'd be 6 points better off
