    Great pics! Robson is a fucking legend. Giggs for me is of course a football legend but his personal behaviour off the pitch leaves a lot to be desired…

    as a side note, how fucking full of himself is this twat Sherwood?? fuck me all he does is prattle on about himself. If only moyes had half the confidence and self belief he might not have made such a mess.

    Louis van Gaal will go to Manchester United. The coach of the Dutch team did last night reached an agreement with the English club. Van Gaal (62) negotiated the last few days in the Portuguese Algarve, where he has a nice villa with Ed Woodward, one of the Glazer brothers and a lawyer on a multi-million contract.
    The man that the absolute number one on the list of candidates for the succession of the dismissed manager David Moyes was, shall immediately after the elimination of the Dutch team at the World Cup in Brazil occurred in the service of the current champion of England.
    Van Gaal wait a tough job, because he has to build. Completely new team Before that, he gets 100 million in transfer funds at his disposal. The initial recommendations for strengthening he has already done. The Glazer family, owners of Manchester United, have great faith in Van Gaal, who won at all the clubs where he worked prizes.

    Van Gaal impressed
    The Glazers had two weeks ago the first by Telesport revealed secret meeting with Van Gaal. In that conversation was Ed Woodward, the general manager of Manchester United. The top United was impressed by the football vision that Van Gaal on display spread. Then had to be diverted because the Dutchman would only talk if the club had arranged. Its act with David Moyes over a contract soon
    This week flew Van Gaal at his villa in the Algarve. With a private jet delegation of Manchester United came a few days later. The leadership of Tottenham Hotspur was then already in mind that it would be in the battle for the signature of the Dutch top trainer. Chance Van Gaal also had a concrete offer from the Spurs to go after the World Cup. Started in London

    Two fraudsters are in town they have scammed £600 million quid out of Manchester United by robbing the fans and forcing them to watch games they could not afford they made an old Scot work 80 hours a week to pay off their debt if you see the fraudsters near Old Trafford tell them its your club you have paid in for years. They are parasites and theres only one way to treat a parasite!
    Fuck off Glazers, you’re not welcome.

    Reports emerging that Kluivert will be van Gaals assistant.

    The Chosen van :lol:

    Ian Ladyman ‏@Ian_Ladyman_DM 18m
    #mufc say reports in holland that van gaal has signed a deal to become new manager are not true.

    Ian Ladyman ‏@Ian_Ladyman_DM 14m
    Worth noting that the Dutch paper in question has very close links to Van Gaal. The details of his proposed staff are therefore interesting.

  10. Fletch™ says:

    Ok, so don’t mind saying I am a tad confused.

    deal done or no?!

    I don’t see how LVG can become our manager when he is contracted to the Dutch FA, surely if we spoke to him now we would need their permission.

    I very much doubt these stories. If the Club signs someone there will no doubt be an official statement and that’s the one I’ll be waiting for, this is in the news like the Sneider signing.

    As for LVG as I said, he has been out of Club football for about 4 years and his latter stints were not as successful as his earlier ones such as at Ajax where he won the CL and some league titles, he left Barca just above the relegation zone in his final stint there and was sacked half way through the year, he was sacked from Bayern as well after bad results after a good season, my concern with him is that unlike eg a Maureen or Ancelotti, he can take Clubs to greater extremes to the top or near the bottom and I am not sure which he will do with United as he is not always the fastest starter so those thinking he will come in an we will compete straight away need to note the volatility in results of his last few teams. Undoubted talent but he has been out of the Club game a long while and his consistency of results as a manager is one question mark over him that a Maureen Pep or Ancelotti does not have.

    Not a bad choice if he is one but for me definitely not a long term manager for United and people need to be more realistic about what he can achieve. This is not Germany or Spain where the top teams are much stronger than everyone else, he will face far more challenges in the EPL and consistency of results will be extremely important. For me he is a 50-50, it is not clear how he will do or how it will go at United and for the first time in the EPL. He could do really well, he could crash and burn, he is that type of manager.

    Its just a question of him signing on the dotted line mate, everything has been agreed but nothings been signed as yet that is my understanding.

    Giggs and Robbo – 2 proper legends
