    Finally it’s all sorted. Time for woodward to put his money where his mouth is and get working on our summer additions ASAP.

    What a difference a year makes; from nothing but disbelief, disappointment and unhappiness at Moyes appointment to excitement and hope for LVG! Welcome to United sir!

    The first positive piece of news for a looooong time. I hope it works for both LvG and us. Now, lets get started!!

    Per the Guardian, LVG has been given a 150 million pound transfer kitty with which to work.

    Oh thank goodness.
    Finally a manager of note, no more stupid experiments with useless British managers like Moyes. Am sure the two coaches he is coming along with are also top class and we wont see any of them on the bench reading “football tactics for dummies” as we did with steve round n lumsdel or whatever his name was. The transfer targets are realistic and looking very likely unlike someone who spent the whole of last summer chasing the entire barcelona midfield and the entire Everton squad then end up with an overprised hair-do with little impact. Infact our only high last season was the acquisition of Mata and the sucking of Moyes. But this appointment will surely return United to the top where they belong.
