    With over £200m expended by our board (Manchester United) to acquire quality players under the managerial tutelage of the one refered to as the "CHOSEN ONE". Do you still think this man in person of van gaal will be allowed to continue with his last remaining contract to man united through the 2016-2017 season.

    Am sure the board wont want to do such a thing because it's so much synonymous to signing off from winning trophies. Imagine as a coach who is currently having his second season in charge and is still confused with his starting eleven. As a United fan it pains me to heart to see United struggling like this. Friends without any shadow of doubt i personally doubt the credibility of this coach. If you dont know let me refresh your memory a little.

    Second half of Van gaal been in charge of United, there was four major players who were so consistent and played to their best. But now they are no where to be found. Okay Di maria where is he now. This player was the one with the best assist last year (I beg you to search for the videos). Talk of skills Di maria was truelly amazing on pitch. Di Maria turned United game around and was a serious threat to any club, he plays like Messi by attracting a minimum of two defenders and thereby expose opponent defence. But where his he now. Remember, Rooney remains in Old traford today because of Daid Moyes.

    Mata, Herrera and Asley Young all formed a tight and strong attack minded players. and man United was able to compete in Champions league because of these four players. But friends where are all these players today. Imagine the departure of Di Maria, oh i can't forget that.

    Will this strugling coach be allowed to continue next season or do you think there is gonna be a change in the management. I await your comments red devils because i cant wait till we fall off from all competitions like Champions league, Eroupa and not been able to enter the top four. Kindly leave your comments.

    Hopefully United and Van Gaal part ways over a glass of red wine (provided by the sponsor of course) at the end of the season.

    That's a polite way of saying "Van Gaal out".

    I want him out. If he goes he'll have a few merits to his tenure, like blooding many academy players, cutting much of the deadwood and his results against the top teams in the league. He's a likeable guy that makes you laugh but unfortunately part of his personality is also really fuckin' annoying.

    His record against the top teams is like Moyes' away record with us, very impressive. Bizarrely, for both, they draw and lose too many easier games. There's no point pulling off the hard but if the fundamentals can't be achieved.

    I thought his departure at the end of the season was a certainty but I'm starting to have doubts no he's in with a chance to make the top 4.

    Yea, at times i wonder the kind of motivation he gives these players in the dressing room. Perhaps some of these players might have been bored with his managerial skills. I hope we all know that football game is more of mental alertness. If players are mentally unbalanced then they will perform below their level.

    It's high time we need to salvage the whole situation and let's make our voice to be held. United we stand and let's unitedly vote this man out. We need to loius him out until he is Van gush out.

    If they make the top 4, he should be allowed to continue. Any suggestions that Mourinho would give the Borthwick-Jacksons and Rashfords of the squad the time of day in the first would be laughable.

    It's been a painful season for LVG, whose only crime is not having Arjen Robben to get him out of jail on a regular basis.

    My expert prediction is that if he goes there will be trouble, but if he stays it will be double.

    Hope this is reassuring.

    LvG hasn't brought the youth through by design though, he's brought them through because he's had no other option. He sanctioned the loans and sales of Man Utds other strikers and didn't adequately improve on or replace them. Rashford has had his chance by pure fluke thanks to incompetent management combined with a few injuries. In these circumstances Mourinho could just as easily have played the youngster if he had wasted a summer shipping out strikers and not bringing enough cover in and then getting done by a few injuries. Rashford has done well to take his chance, others that LvG has resorted to playing haven't. The Dutchman has played a lot of young players this season but as I say that's not by design, he's doing it because of his piss poor handling of the squad and poor recruitment.

    ^ On point. His handling of the youth has been generally poor too tbh, if Will Keane was fit Rashford wouldn't even be around the first team set up. He has Andreas Pereira, probably the most talented of the youth prospects frozen out because he doesn't like forward thinking flair players and his obsession with retaining impotent possession. His handling of Memphis has been a load of balls, it's like Di Maria all over again with him preferring to go with the player that passes backwards and sidewards in Jesse Lingard - who turns 24 this year so not exactly 'young pottential'.

    He cleared dead wood which is great, but a few of those players were key members of the squad and he simply didn't replace them. Starting the season with Rooney as our only recognised striker and a 19 year old coming over from the French league was mismanagement on a criminal level. He even loaned out James Wilson, who supposedly at the time was the youngster to be intergrated into the team. The positives that did arise from his tenure were definetely not by design, but the talent his circumstances uncovered - and brought over ala last minute signing Martial - are very exciting and literally the only thing going for the club at the moment. It's why LVG and United quickly changed the narrative to 'we deliberately kept a small squad so we can blood in the youth', :lol:the fuckers.

    The man has lost it and at 64 doesn't have it in him to adapt. I quite liked his blunt personality for the first year or so but as things started to fall apart his press conferences became seemingly deluded, which is quite frustrating cause he's a clever man so more likely than not he's just trying to feed us bull to get him by. Can't see the back of him soon enough.

    I do think the board are contemplating keeping him on because they really don't seem to be able to agree on Mourinho between them and most other top managers are taken (I'd have loved Simeone but there is no reason for him to leave Atletico for United). The thing that makes me doubt that specific report is that part about him having 100m euros to spend in the summer. That equates to about £80m and I'd expect us to be planning to spend more than that.,

    I can certainly understand anyone connected to Manchester United being unsure of Mourinho's suitability for the role, despite his record. Taking him on really would be a final two fingered salute to any pretence of a long term strategy for success, which was clearly the goal when Moyes took over. I always got the impression Van Gaal was meant to be a stop gap between the disaster known as Moyes and the next manager who the likes of Charlton conceived as being at the helm for a decade or more. Perhaps they're finally realising that's unlikely to happen and are struggling to make a decision as to what to do next. Another season of Van Gaal could make sense and allow them more breathing room, but only if he makes top 4, I can't see how they could allow him to stay if he doesn't.

    Yeah, I think that's right. They pulled the trigger on Moyes once Champions League football was no longer possible. We were disappointing last season but scraped in via the playoffs so Van Gaal remained in place. There was talk about Jose being informed about whether he would take over from Van Gaal or not this summer by May 1st. Only two matches fall after that date and I imagine the Champions League qualification picture should be clear by then. It's a strange way to plan the future of a football club but that's what seems to be happening.

    Perhaps they can bin him off for less compensation if he fails to get them into the CL, and that's why they're waiting.
    Additionally right now there are no standout candidates, so why rush? They've missed out on 2 guys that the fans would have been happy with.

    Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
    According to SSN just now, since the start of the season their share value has dropped by £500m, and since he took over the club, it's dropped by about £1bn.

    So..

    Stay, please.
