Now that Louis van Gaal looks set to escalate the 3-time European champions back to where they belong – after beating the likes of Spurs, Liverpool and Man City on the trot – let’s see how competing, or not competing among Europe’s elites affects us.
Food for thought.
LOVE. LOVE FOR JUAN. PURE, UNADULTERATED LOVE.
After the debacle we suffered under David Moyes last season, Louis van Gaal looked like the saviour we needed. But the manager who once stood impervious in self-belief in the gust of media’s criticism, now looks inane to some.
Does the Dutchman still have the nerves to set things right or is he starting to lose the grip?
Here’s how you respond to the “LvG is a better manager, you say? But then Moyes won more games!” bullshit.
These are the 3 reasons why Louis van Gaal is a massive upgrade over David Moyes.
“Wayne Rooney? The captain? But… didn’t he ask to leave the club twice? Odd.”
Here’s the flip-side of the argument: http://goo.gl/v9ZKBM
Wayne Rooney has been at the receiving end of a lot of criticism after lashing out at his defenders after United gave away the lead at Leicester last week. But is it too early to call for his head? I speak in captain’s favour.
The chief reason behind David Moyes’ sacking might well be his selection of the first team coaches. With Louis van Gaal coming in, Manchester United will see some world class coaches back at United.
Will it escalate us back to where we belong? Time will tell.
After two and a half decades of unprecedented dominance, Manchester United find themselves at the receiving end of the brutality they were once known for inflicting. Having been paralyzed by pitiful players, atrocious administration and a mediocre management, they stand broken, bereft of European football after 19 years.
Realizing the extent of problems they face, the club decided to bring in a sizeable appointment that lives up to the challenge. Louis van Gaal was recently announced as the next Manchester United manager. 27 days after David Moyes’ sacking, the flamboyant Dutchman was elected unanimously to take charge of the ‘world’s biggest club’.
Having managed clubs like FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he presented the 20-time English champions with a CV they couldn’t resist. But is the CV all that Louis van Gaal brings to the table? Nope, there’s more to him.
Van Gaal’s appointment does not only bring the much clichéd ‘top level experience’. His appointment gives United a personality that can help them witness an overhaul in terms of squad and style of play that they have been missing for so long.
What makes him a fitting piece in United’s jigsaw is his affinity towards young players. The Dutchman has been renowned across the world for the players he has developed in his managerial tenures. To name a few; Patrick Kluivert, Dennis Bergkamp, Edwin van der Sar, David Alaba, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller leaped onto the world stage under his management. Continue reading
Louis van Gaal has finally been announced as the Manchester United manager. Now with him taking charge post-WC, let’s see what the daunting Dutchman, who has had an illustrious past with Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, brings to United fans’ platter.
With the Premier League season coming to an end, Man United’s pursuit to find the new manager will soon begin. And with Ryan Giggs among the few candidates, I’ve decided to testify the strong case he holds.
Giggs will have a big advantage as he knows the club inside-out and also has great relationship with all players. If he gets mentored in the right way, things might just work out for him and Manchester United. It’ll be interesting to see how it all pans out in a week’s time. Till then, enjoy the video!
Yes, it happened. The club announced today that David Moyes has been bereaved of his services following a treacherous season that saw Man United breaking a dozen of records, for the bad. Here’s what I think he got wrong!
