Manchester United is a club synonymous with football fans worldwide. The name is something recognised by all lovers of the game and is very much related to the giants of world sport.
So when the team collapsed on the pitch last season, as it became embroiled in farce, the eyes of the world couldn’t quite believe what it was seeing. There was a sense of jubilation amongst the, once green eyed monsters, in Britain, who took great satisfaction in the club’s turmoil.
I think you might find this interesting if, like me, you’re interested in the history and the future of Manchester United’s Academy system.
Tony Park, AKA @MrMujac, is a lifelong United supporter with a knowledge far richer than most, especially about United’s youth system. Regularly found following the youth teams home and away, Tony’s views are certainly to be respected.
In this short video, Tony talks about the impact Louis van Gaal may have on United in general, why particular youth players went on tour and what van Gaal’s introduction means to players hoping to make the step from youth football to the Premier League.
After a disappointing season under David Moyes leaves United missing out on Champion’s League football this coming season and a truly awful viewing experience for even the most hardcore Red Devil fan, the board did what they should have done a year earlier and conducted an extensive search for a suitable manager to ensure they didn’t repeat the errors made replacing the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.
After appointing Louis Van Gaal as the new manager, he went on to lead the Dutch national team to an unexpected third place finish in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Jose Mourinho believes the signing of Luke Shaw would have killed his current club, Chelsea, had they have pursued his signature.
Mourinho was interested in the ex-Southampton left-back but the 19-year-old chose to move to Manchester United ahead of Chelsea this summer in a £28m deal.
In an attempt to silence youngsters within his own squad, Mourinho insists that, had he agreed to Shaw’s wage demands, the dressing room at Stamford Bridge would have been in uproar.
So, the new era as begun. Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United crushed the L.A.Galaxy 7-0 in a testimony to Oranje style and an affirmation that Woodward and the Glazer’s may have finally got the right man, twelve months too late….
That 12 months resulted in an enforced hiatus for United, an enforced break for myself due to work and health reasons. But, we’re both back!!!
I thought I’d re-introduce myself with a chat to America based podcaster, @NipunChopra7, about all things United. Here’s how it went…..

New Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal, has failed in his efforts to persuade his number one target to follow him to Old Trafford this summer.
Robben, who we previously reported to be van Gaal’s priority transfer on 21st June, revealed on Dutch television after the 3-0 win over Brazil in Brasilia that Van Gaal had approached him about joining United.
Reports in the Metro this morning suggest Manchester United have launched a £7million offer for Benfica star, Enzo Perez.
Perez was one of the stars of the show in last nights semi-final between LvG’s Netherlands and Perez’s Argentina.
The Red Devils are hoping to finalize the deal before the World Cup ends this weekend, in which Perez is set to be starting in the final for Argentina.
