LVG introduces his backroom staff.

Frans Hoek Goalkeeping coach : " I've been working with Frans Hoek for more than 20 years. He is my goalkeeping coach and, for me, the goalkeeping coach has to have the same philosophy. He worked with me at Ajax Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now in Manchester. I think it's good that he's my coach for the goalkeepers here."

Albert Stuivenberg Assistant coach : " I have worked with Albert now for only one year and that is peculiar for me. Normally with my coaches I always have a longstanding relationship with them, but he has so much talent this boy. I picked him up in the [Netherlands] Federation, he was my coach for the Under-21s and worked as my scout in the World Cup. He did a remarkable job and that's why I want to reward him to be my assistant here as a coach. He has made a fantastic impression on me but also on the players, that's much more important I think. But I have only known him for one year."

Marcel Bout Assistant coach/Opposition scout : " Marcel will scout the future opponent. I have worked with him since 2006 when I was at AZ Alkmaar. It's only a small team – maybe you have heard of them? – but with that minor club I was also the champion of the Netherlands."

Jos van Dijk Training physiologist : " He writes my [training] programmes, he has also been working with me since AZ. We have a very good relationship and it is very important to write the programmes that the trainer has to do. It always has to be progressive because it's important that your players are not injured because of the preparation. Until now, we are doing great but we've only had a few days working with the players."

Max Reckers Performance analyst : " Finally, I can't forget my computer guru – it's unbelievable because he's not only my computer guru, he's like my son. But he's not called van Gaal, his name is Max Reckers and he is a Performance Analyst. He collects all the data that we need. We have a lot of data because at Manchester United there was already a philosophy that you have to measure everything and it's called the sport science department. It's unbelievable what kind of data they have and I'm very pleased that kind of support is already arranged in Manchester. They have supported us very well, not only in sport science but also the medical department and the kit men. It's unbelievable what organisation you have to make for such a big group at such a big club."

Looks very talented.
Looks like a talented kid. He is part of our Milk Cup Squad so he will most likely sign for us.
Looks like a talent. Lots of potential. Is that his dad or something that posted the videos? lol
Van Nistelrooy took over as Holland assistant coach today alongside new boss, Guus Hiddink.
Guys..am planning to get a new United jersey...give me some sites where I can get one(US sites preferably)..and also suggest me which one to pick from home or away..?
Thanxx..:)
Pick the one you like man!

you can get in all these sites(India)

United direct
Myntra
I would get an Adidas one next year, or go retro.
It's August now and we only have 2 weeks left before the new season starts. I hope we can get one or two signings this week so they'll train with the team at least for a week before the league starts

Realistic targets: Miranda/Verm (hopefully Miranda!) and Carvalho (will be expensive)
if only Vidic didn't leave us. We would be set at the back and would only be desperate for a CM
+1
Apart from the obvious need of a CB and DM, I think you guys would benefit from signing a solid winger, preferably on the right.
Wasn't Vidic very injury prone last season?
I think LvG would have sought out a defender regardless of Vidic's transfer.

I still think a winger would be great for you guys, especially since Nani and Valencia don't cut it anymore.
why do you think Young cuts it though?
We dont need any wingers this season because we will be playing with wing backs. So if we do make any moves, it will be to strengthen our CB and CM department.
+1
lol Young .. I forgot that guy existed
+2
^Young? Who's Young? I know an Ashley Old, but he's certainly not Young :P
+1
LMAO lastgraspwinner, that was one of those jokes that is so painfully bad that it ends up making you laugh out loud
+3
@lastgraspwinner

you should try stand up comedian job, i think you have the talent
+3
We do need wingers,we won't be playing only 352
352 will be our main system this season. LVG has stated that numerous time. He will change it if the need arises. Teams will change formation depending on different needs but their will be one central formation. For us this season it will be 352. LVG has told Zaha that he will have to adapt to a striker role this season if he wants game time. If needed Januzaj, Mata, Rooney can all play out wide. So i wont be expecting any more wingers but i could be wrong.

We will also be playing 4-3-3,we are not playing this in the preseason because the boys need practice in the new formation that has been introduced to them.

LVG changes the formation during matches when its not working and when you do that you need wingers for 4-3-3

He did that against many teams,that is the main reason why LVG's Holland would start kicking after the halftime.
I've lost faith. I'll have to change my dp very soon :(

New Lazio signing Stefan de Vrij insists signing for Manchester United was never an option this summer.

"Several clubs contacted me, I don't think it's fair to say the names. I can say that Manchester United were not one of them".

Strange that LVG doesn't rate him highly enough for us.He played well at the world cup.
+2
De vrij is good enough in my book. But I am no lvg. Time is running out though. He should atleast promote blackett and keane to the senior squad. and get one more decent centre back preferably an experienced cb with a cool head.
he should know de Vrij better than anyone. we have young talent that are similar to de vrij, we need a player that provides something different imo. for me we need an organizer/leader who is great in the air and is up for a physical battle. smalling evans and even jones are lightweights. jones got brushed off by suarez like he wasnt even there on the play that earned de gea save of the season.

guys like costa would just bully our CBs and we are too vulnerable in the air. even on set pieces our boys seem to always get beaten easily.
But who, SIF? I mean, what CBs that fit the criteria are realistically available?
Miranda
Recent chatter is that Miranda prefers Barca move. True or false, only he knows. But that's what has been widely reported.
He's not overrated but you really need an enforcer CB. He's a bit light weight.
Idk..but there's this dude that plays in Milan(city) that is apparently a utd fan. I think he is from Serbia? He'll murder ya :(
Roma's Benatia ?
@Teja7 Benatia was superb against RM. He would be an amazing signing but I don't see it happening as he is as important to Roma as Hummels is to BVB
why not godin?
I was honestly surprised ManUtd wasn't in for Lovren ... We got him fairly very easily without any competition

He's no different to what we already have I think. We're after someone with a bit of experience
Southampton are interested in signing Javier Hernandez from Manchester United. [ssn]

Betting war? Southampton, Atletico, and Inter shown interest till now.
If Southampton are really interested, I'd take £5-10m + Schneiderlin instead of buying Vidal we can spend the money on getting a CB and a winger then in January get Strootman.

If Atletico wants him, I'd try to get Koke for him+10/15m and the same case as above.
I hope we demand big money, we know Saints have got it from all those player sales, we went big for Shaw so if they want Hernandez they can go big in return.

Id rather sell him abroad but at Southampton he can do a lot of damage to our rivals but could also damage us so its a bit of a mixed bag really.

I think he will end up abroad personally, Saints cant compete with A.Madrid atm.
EDIT: Wrong post
Should go abroad. Would hate to see him score against us in the prem. He would suit la liga too. Either way, I am just happy were aren't wasting his career. Great player, wrong time.

I rate Schneiderlin highly. I am surprised he is the 5th (I think) to leave.I thought he might be one of the first snapped up. He has a right engine on him!

Koke is great but he is more of a attacking midfielder. We need natural central midfielders.
Koke for hernandez+10/15m? LOL he has €60m release clause.

http://www.101greatgoals.com/blog/atletico-madrid-up-kokes-release-clause-to-e60m-in-bid-to-ward-off-man-united-interest-marca/
+2
Definitely no to Premier League teams, he might slaughter us twice a season
+1
I'd hate to lose Chicha. Despite everything, he player Massive roles in us winning the title in 2011 and 2013 (those comebacks!)
Moyes took him from being a fan favorite who scored in every other game to someone who barely got a game in.

I truly really hope we don't lose him.

Who is going to score against Chelsea now?!
SAF revived his career, gave him life as a footballer when he almost quit. And then, Moyes destroyed it. Moyes the Destroyer.
+1
Napoli's president Aurelio De Laurentiis confirms interest in Marouane Fellaini. ‪#‎SSN‬

My question,

What are you waiting for?
May be Napoli wants some money from us. :)
+4
Hair ever grows back? He didn't cut in the first place LOL
Napoli: We're interested in Fellaini.
United: Ok.
Napoli: How about 15 mil?
United: No no no... we will only pay 10 mil max. Plus we keep 50% of the wig sales if the hair ever grows back. Take it or leave it.
Napoli: Deal!
+1
there are rumors that they are offering Martens
Dries Mertens Somere?

We could probably do with another winger but given that were going 3-5-2 I'm not sure where Mertens would fit.

Its probably best for Fellaini to leave, he just feels like a Moyes relic and with no Gollum here he will barely get played, if they offer a solid 15-18 million we should rip there hand off.

We really need to start making some more signings though as Fellaini would have been a decent enough squad player.

I hope Van Gaal doesn't delay any longer and makes a judgment call on the squad, were going into august and we still need about 3 more signings to balance the squad out
@MUFC1990 We won't be playing only 352,Van Gaal wants the players to get as much experience in this new formation possible.We will also be playing 433/442 and We are not playing this formation in the preseason because we are already used to it(Van Gaal said)

So I think we need wingers and also the other day Van Gaal said he needs specialist wingers,I think Mertens falls into the category.

I will welcome him with open hands!
@Karthik, that comment was in reference to this...

https://twitter.com/ESPNFC/status/487261263790362624/photo/1

I never bothered to check up on how true it was... sorry if I fell for an incorrect report from the media. smh... ridiculous times that you have to double check your sources when the news comes from 'respected' media outlets... oh well.
I would take Mertens for Fellaini in a heartbeat.
mertens is a B signing at best, not united quality
Not United quality? How many games have you seen him play?
