It’s Over: Reflecting on Van Gaal’s departure

May 25, 2016

“It’s over.” Those were Louis van Gaal’s own brusque words to a Sky reporter on the steps of the Corinthia Hotel the day after United won their record-equalling FA Cup. At that moment, I actually felt a pang of sadness for this once great and respected manager. Don’t get me wrong, his two-year tenure at United has. Read More »

OPINION: Youth will be Louis van Gaal’s ultimate legacy at United

May 23, 2016

The die is cast. Despite securing silverware at the death, Van Gaal’s tenure at Old Trafford has come and gone. Many fans will say they are glad to see the back of him.

May 7, 2016

It was exactly twenty years ago; Sergeant Fergie changed the team’s shirts at half time. OK, it was 13 April, but what’s a few weeks between friends? Some of you probably weren’t born in April 1996, but what Sir Alex did was big news at the time, so here’s a reminder. First, a bit of. Read More »

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s Under-21 Player of the Year Award Tells a Bigger Story

May 5, 2016

I suspect the votes that brought Cameron Borthwick-Jackson the Denzil Haroun Under-21 Player of the Year award earlier this week were a result largely of his appearances not for the Under-21s, but for the first team. Personally, on the strength of his performances for the Under-21s, I voted for James Weir, simply because I believe. Read More »
