Louis Van Gaal - Is His Time Up?

Louis Van Gaal's Manchester United side currently sit fifth in the Premier League on forty one points, that is forty one points with a squad of players that include Wayne Rooney, Anthony Marial, Ander Herrera, David De Gea, Juan Mata and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Whether you like it or not that is a poor haul of points for a team of that calibre. They currently find themselves six points behind their noisy neighbours Manchester City in fourth and a full twelve …

Recent injuries to Manchester United’s captain and their star keeper have undoubtedly come as a big blow to Louis Van Gaal and his team.

Managers: The transformation from Europe to England

Some of the world's best managers have tried their hand in the Premier League in recent years and have been swallowed up by its pressures. The Premier League is renowned for its unpredictability and high expectations and for some managers, it's proved too much. The British media are ruthless, the fans are demanding and the league is dramatic - all of which contribute to the rise and fall of the world's managers. Pep Guardiola is the latest 'genius' to put …
Manchester United: Apportioning the Blame

Manchester United: Apportioning the Blame

The blame game can be a self-defeating process. Manchester United fans and quite possibly many individuals employed by the club are currently within the midst of the blame game. Louis van Gaal is the man to blame it seems. Louis van Gaal it appears is responsible for the regression of Manchester United.
