LVG won’t panic buy in January

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:01 am

Louis van GaalLouis Van Gaal is not planning any January signings, unless one of his main targets becomes available, according to reports that will come to a surprise to many, who expected the Dutchman to splash money again this winter.

Having spent over £150m in the summer, Van Gaal was expected to use the January transfer window to shore up United’s shaky defence, but the Guardian today suggests that the Dutchman is unlikely to spend money in two months, choosing instead to focus on next summer.

United in cut price bid for centre-back

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 8:46 am

Ron-Vlaar-523646Louis Van Gaal is determined to sign Ron Vlaar in January as he attempts to solve the defensive crisis that has crippled Manchester United since the start of the season.

With Jonny Evans having only just returned to training, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo out injured and Chris Smalling suspended after his brainless sending off in the derby, United only have two centre-backs available, but Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair are too raw to be relied upon for a whole season.

Neville: “RVP needs help”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 8:32 am

1415045586016_wps_2_Manchester_City_s_Pablo_ZGary Neville has defended Robin Van Persie’s performances, saying that the Dutchman’s poor start to the campaign was down to a lack of help from his teammates, who must do more to help him.

Van Persie has scored three times in nine Premier League games and has come under criticism for looking uninterested and for not being as sharp in front of goal as he was during the World Cup in Brazil and Neville admitted the former Arsenal captain was beginning to be under pressure.

Smalling and improvements, 5 things we’ve learnt from the derby

Tag: Match Reports,Opinion Piece @ 11:10 am

Chris SmallingMondays are nobody’s idea of fun, mondays after losing the derby even less so.

The fact that United have developed a losing habit against City – yesterday’s was United’s sixth defeat in the last seven meetings against City – doesn’t make the result easier to accept either and looking for positives could seem a petulant exercise, though United do have a case for some optimism.

“United have been inferior to City for years”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:07 am

Manchester-United-v-Manchester-City-Premier-LeagueThere is no rest for the wicked. There is even less rest for the cardiovascular systems of those who support Manchester United, it seems. Having negotiated a deserved draw against Chelsea on Sunday, irking many an ABUs in the process after United fans took the liberty of celebrating a last minute equaliser, Louis Van Gaal’s troops make the short journey across town to face the defending champions.

The prospect of United traveling to the Etihad as underdogs would have seemed sheer lunacy until a few seasons ago but it’s now widely accepted, given City have won two of the last three titles and put eight goals past United in the last three meetings, winning every single one of them.

Time for the real United to step up

Man-Utd-v-EvertonWhen Manchester United hosted Chelsea last season, on a balmy Monday night in August, David Moyes’ men arrived into the fixture on the back of an impressive 4-1 win away at Swansea and while the turgid stalemate that followed against the Blues was hardly exciting, it definitely did not provide any indications about the shamble that would unfold in the following months.

That United could find themselves happy with the same result on Sunday, speaks volume of how tough United have found things under Louis Van Gaal and of how well Chelsea have done so far this season.

Fergie: “Moyes’ wasn’t my fault”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 8:44 am

Alex Ferguson and David MoyesSir Alex Ferguson has dismissed suggestions that he is partly responsible for Manchester United’s decline, claiming it is absurd to think he left behind an ageing team and an “antiquated” club and insisting that he wasn’t the only person responsible for the appointment of David Moyes.

Ferguson described as “nonsense” the suggestion that Moyes had inherited a team in decline, saying the problem for his successor  was that he had found it “a massive jump” to move to Old Trafford and “hadn’t realised just how big United is as a club.”
