Van Gaal unhappy with Roy Hodgsons comments on Shaw...

"Roy Hodgson cannot judge at this moment," said Van Gaal.

"I have never seen him here at a United training session."

"I think Roy is referring to the World Cup. It is possible, I don't know. That is what I want to ask. But now Shaw is doing a great job."

"In the United States I said to Luke, 'you came here and you were not fit'. I changed his programme and he did everything that he had to do to be fit."

"Now he is an example in the dressing room. He is training fantastically."

Yeah... Butt the f**k out Woy you clueless idiot.

The diatribe against this kid since he signed for us has been nothing short of disgusting, he is only a teenager, people should leave the lad alone, people wonder why young English players struggle? the only person with any ground to be commenting on Shaw is his gaffer.

Granted Van Gaal had his concerns but Shaw responded brilliantly and was fantastic against Madrid and Liverpool and tbh I think we've really missed him these last two weeks.

Cant wait until his hamstring is better and we can get him back in the side.
just a question, why aren't we after alex song? a strong quality DM, not used by barca who'll definitely sell him for cheap price

in 2012 he made 14 assists, as a DM that's really good just like fabregas
There is a reason Barca are getting shot of him and its not because he is brilliant.

West Ham are apparently getting him on loan which says it all really.
Reputed Dutch journalist Mike Verweij of the Telegraaf says Daley Blind is off to Manchester United for a fee of €18 million (excluding bonuses). This is the same guy who broke the news of Louis van Gaal becoming the next Manchester United manager.
Officially a pro+ member! So excited Woohoo!
You are no officially a TopBloke ! :D

Phank youuu

Is Blind a good buy for us? Better him than no one imo
+1
Better than Cleverly,Anderson,Fellaini BUT not better than Fletcher,Carrick,Herrera!!!

Have you seen Fletcher this season?

He's definitely better than Fletcher, agree that he is no better than Carrick and Herrera though but is a massive upgrade on Cleverley, Fellaini and Anderson.

Not sure what the negativity is about... Will be a fantastic addition to the squad and is very versatile.
not better than fletcher?

are you out of your mind?

fletcher is as s**t as cleverley and anderson... we are just keeping him out of respect i think...
and no, perhaps he's also better than carrick... he's getting very rusty and slow, although his passing is still better than blind
Thoughts every one!
do u guys think Nemanja Vidić decision to leave us and play for Milan was a good decision? i mean after the start we have season don't u guys think he would have been a difference maker?
+1
maybe they thought they could get someone better. the fact that we are 2 days away from the window closing and haven't replaced his skillset tells me we are run by idiots. none of our defenders are even 60% of vidic. yes he has missed a lot of games and isn't the same vidic pre-injury but even a blind person could see the difference in our team when he plays vs when he doesn't play.

rojo's good but he's no vidic, we need a world class CB and so far it looks like that's not going to happen.
+1
Stupid decision from the club and Moyes.
You guys are thinking about it from a United point of view and not a Vidic point of view.

It stands to reason that Vida knew full well that he still belongs at the very top level and in Europe. But he also knew the club were gonna try to start grooming his replacements.
Despite that, Vidic could've held his spot down for another season or 2 or 3...
But by that time, he'd be playing less games to accommodate for United's youth policy.
Meanwhile, throughout those 2 or 3 seasons of diminished playing time, his value goes down in the eyes of other clubs, and they're not willing to pay him a high salary or make him a starting player anymore because they see him as an aging squad player.
BUT if he leaves while he's still very much in demand, he can get at least a couple full seasons at any top club in Europe AND play in the champions league again before he retires...

From a United point of view, it's a bummer.
From a Vidic point of view, it was possibly healthier for his career to leave
Now if United were still winning things and not in such a transition period, then it might be a completely different story
+1
I think he had a falling out with Moyes or something. Really couldn't we him leave if Fergie was still here tbh.

With vidic I genuinely think we would definitely finish in the top 4. Without him our defense looks shaky as hell. He's twice the player any of our cb is.

Hell I even wish we kept Rio in all honesty. He isnt the player he once was but as his 2013 season - where he was one of the best cb in the league - showed, he still has a lot to offer. Our defense lacks so much experience it's petrifying
@Badge I agreed with ya on Vidic but not Rio. His wage was massive. As much as I am thankful for what he's done for us he was just an expensive squad player.

This is all in theory but I reckon Vidic declared that he was leaving us half way through last season because he was disagreeing with Moyes's management. Letting Vidic and Evra go at the rebuilding stage was a terrible decision that the club's made.
Been saying it for ages, really stupid to let go of Vidic with no replacement lined up.

Yeah, sure he wanted to leave, fine, but we can't be this blind in seeing we need somebody to make a like for like replacement. Utter incompetence of the board.
LVG tried to convince Evra to stay.
Evra's choice

They each left to make way for the impending transition.
They chose to accept change and move on
Sorry guys, it surely is bad that they're gone!
Guys Should i captin Mata or rooney for football fantasy plzz help!!
Neither. Captain should be Danny Ings.
+1
Edit: damn I posted something here that was meant for the above comment about Vida
I'm hearing that we're closing in on Blind.
Has anyone actually seen him play outside of the world cup? I haven't and I'd like to know more about the kind of player he is. I heard he's strong, athletic and versatile but how good of a signing would he hypothetically be if we got him?
weak* unathletic*
+3
Lmao yikes my bad haha got it all wrong

So songkykong he won't be a starter most likely? It's good that we increase the level of the squad players though. Our B team shouldn't be getting their asses handed to them by mk dons
+2
Given our current injury state and form of our current defenders, he'll probs waltz right into the first team ahaha but aye, I doubt he'll be starting regularly once Rojo, Shaw become available and fit but will definitely be a quality option along that left-side and even the midfield.
Compared to the ilk of the PL defenders, he's comparatively not that strong or athletic but he's got a fantastic footballing brain (evident by the fact that he can play in so many different positions and still perform well). He won't be a first on the team sheet but he'll be our next O'Shea, which I believe we've been lacking since his departure.

Blind is really just a quality utility player all around. Wouldn't mind him in the squad. Provides that extra level of versatility.

to his defence, judging by his performance in the eredivise last season, where he plays 60% of his games as DM and the rest as LB, he is better at the former and is much more like carrick in the sense that he is also def minded and can see and play through and long passes, but not very physical.
in ajax formation he is the one who drops back to give an extra man when defending. his best performance would have been the 2-1 win against barca where he marked iniesta and fabregas (as a false 9) very effectively.
he will be more than a squad player for us until we sign a better CM no doubt
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXBDlG2tuYw

MAGISTERIAL
He's a fantastic no.6 , was pivotal in Ajax winning the title last season. Sitting just in front of the back two and dictate the tempo. (Busquets role)

He's a very good passer and has the potential to become a world class midfielder, but as it stands I wanted someone with more "punching weight" if you will...in our midfield, considering how long we've neglected our frailties in that position.

But if you look closely LvG is basically signing talented young players who can only get better and that under his guidance undoubtedly will. We might have good players now who can all become world class in a few years time.

Edit: This video will kinda give you an idea of how he operates in the no.6 role: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXBDlG2tuYw

Only seen Ajax play once this season so far, I saw his performance vs Alkmaar about 2 weeks ago and he seems to be getting even better in that role with a majestic performance.
"It's obviously disappointing that we've only got one point on the board but it's like the manager has said - you've got to believe in his philosophy which all the players are doing.

"It's not going to take a day or a week or a month, it might take longer but we're working hard in training and we're trying to play the manager wants us to.

"It's about getting the results now and we've got another opportunity to do that on Saturday. The way we've trained this week I'm confident everything will click into place and we can get the three points and kick on from there"- ashley young

i know what the team is trying to do ashley young. what are YOU doing to help? (besides being a parrot and trying to suck the LVG d to stay in the team)
I was reading it with so much hope till I saw '-ashley young'. LOL
