I have followed van Gaal's press conferences. How else can the man in the street gain knowledge from the Dutch man? (Is Dutch man the correct term?) All I can hear is philosophy/ balance. What does this mean? To me it sounds like bull shit. I have supported Manchester United since 1948, what a shame about our blitzed stadium but what a great final against Blackpool! Busby/Murphy, Ferguson/ and his various assistants, wonderous years, there is a god! Then Moyes and now van Gaal. Who is guiding the money men of United now? It is about time so please Glazers appoint a "United" manager so we can watch "United" football again. Piss off all these so called theorists and lovers of Edam & Gouda!
What a performance ! Looks to me that to save face for the prosecution he will receive a jail sentence but to save face for the defence it will be suspended. Puzzles me how he can share his bedroom with his girl friend, keep a firearm in his bedroom, then blast away her life when she visits his en-suite and then says he thought it was an intruder. Twilight Zone to me.
So Nefertiti (Rahim Sterling, have you seen his hair) is too tired to play for his COUNTRY? Poor darling! It's only October and Liverpool have only played eight league matches and a couple of European matches. Has he played all of these matches? Poor darling! When I was young I use to play that many matches during half term. What kind of torture and child neglect are Liverpool putting their young players through? Poor darlings!
Falcao, Blind, di Maria and Rojo added to payroll. What can I say about Puck Elf (Ed Woodward) and the Glazer Gang? Appear to have got their proverbial finger out. How many years of Glazer hurt and negligence?
All we need are work permits (Falcao and Rojo). When are we going to see some debuts? Only di Maria has played so far.
Pity we haven't re-signed Pogba though, what a cock up that was!
So who is lining up against Sunderland tomorrow? Definitely not any signings by Moyes or van Gaal. (Not heard about Mata but there is time yet.) Fellaini - ankle Herrera - ankle Shaw - hamstring Rojo (Shaw's replacement?) - no work permit (who forgot that?) If it's true Hernandez and Welbeck have been told to look for new jobs let's hope van Persie can manage to stay fit! SNAFU!
So the avalanche begins. From a tiny yodel to a thundering mountain call there will be a massive demand for Puck Elf's (Ed Woodward) head! From big mouthing the start to Manchester United's season to the recent trough of silence and inactivity in the transfer market; from disappearing, nay not once but twice, on the tour to the club's main sponsors and share market "to deal with business" (sic). Early, LVG told Puck Elf (Ed Woodward) you cannot build a team on a sand foundation, no excuse for Puck Elf there then. How long will the Glazers support this empty shell of a "yes" man?
Now is the time for Ed Woodward to show his true colours. Stop being a sponsor monitor and become a team builder, Woodward. Make the honourable choice, either choose to fight for the team or fall on your sword!
After falling to relegation tipped Swansea City yesterday, what does that say about Manchester United? I can't see the point in blaming yesterday's team for the defeat, they are what they are - generally not up to standard/form. LVG knows this but he has no money yet or in sight. So he is trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. So it looks like the blame has to be placed with Vice-Chairman, Puck Elf (aka Ed Woodward). Already he has boasted that there are funds available to LVG and that United are willing to break the world transfer if necessary. Oh yeah! All United fans hope Puck Elf (aka Woodward) is grabbing a bit of Sunday overtime in the transfer market. Give LVG a chance you tight wad! United sacked Moyes, no improvement, so it is definitely time to consider Puck Elf's (aka Ed Woodward) position with a view to giving him a P45 and an interview down the Job Centre. Manchester United - well last time this happened O'Farrell was sacked before Christmas and United Relegated to Division Two (Old days). Conclusion - send Puck Elf (aka Ed Woodward) back to Fairyland.
Grumpy's not in it! At my age what do you expect? A pretty jaundice view of news reports which are mainly 'spin' of interested parties.
Love riding my Burgman and touring on the continent. Love the challenge of fishing boat blockades of French ports and the blocking of petrol stations and motorways by French farmers and truckers. They let the government know their feelings!
