Another day another reason to fall deeper into the pit of utter despair as Louis Van Gaal sails the good ship Manchester United full speed ahead into the nearest ice berg.
Just once it would be great as United fans to wake up go about our day and go to bed without seeing something that makes our great club a cause for hilarity among our rivals. If it’s not drab football and disappointing results or bizarre loan moves it’s ridiculous transfer stories or more often than usual it’s the manager with water round his knees telling everyone the Titanic is set for the right course.
The latest reason not to be cheerful if you’re a United fan is the manager’s claims that even he’s been bored by the football this season- the difference is he’s the one who’s responsible for it.
In the press conference ahead of the Newcastle game Van Gaal made his shocking comments. The Guardian notes:
“There are matches that I have enjoyed very much. Against Chelsea I enjoyed it but the result was 0-0 and we could have lost. There are also matches where I’m very bored or angry because we are not disorganising our opponent’s defence but that is football. It’s not every match that every club is playing fantastically, football that attracts the people.”
Reds on Twitter have reacted with incredulity to the managers comments and it’s time he stopped acting like an innocent bystander and started making the fans happy – for once.
