Fans urge LVG to change the system.

Louis Van Gaal has hit back at United fans who chanted “4-4-2” at the United boss during the team’s 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday.

Supporters were disappointed to see the team struggle with the 3-5-2 set-up the managed used at Loftus Road, a system which has been criticised all season. Once the Reds reverted to a more conventional 4-4-2 the difference was instant with United scoring almost immediately through Marouane Fellaini.

The Sun [pictured] runs the story on tomorrow’s back page how fans urged a change at Loftus Road.

Van Gaal noted:

“I have to look at the players, I have to communicate with the players and observe the players. I can’t observe the fans because Manchester United have 600 million fans all over the world. You can’t take into account 600 million opinions.”

Fans will be hoping the manager ditches the much maligned system for the rest of the season, especially as yesterday saw Arsenal grab a result at the Etihad using a 4-1-4-1 formation which stifled City and caused them problems.

Part of the reason for Van Gaal’s success is confidence in his own ability, let’s just hope that doesn’t become an arrogance where he refuses to listen to reason.

    Man United need a football manager not a BANK MANAGER. Please the Glazer Family should take a second look at it, LVG doesn’t know what he doing at the Club period.
