Lol, been hearing rumors that van Gaal wants Roy Keane as one of his assistants if and when he takes over. If there's any truth in this, then the players will literally sh*t bricks upon his appointment.
Van Gaal is a hardarse as it is, with Keano in there as well it will be like a military training camp lol.

Van Gaal takes no prisoners apparently, benched Rivaldo when he was managing Barca, I don't see him being scared to slap anyone down.

Might be just what some of the violets in the dressing room need.
I would be surprised if Keane is involved in the same setup where Fergie is. But if van gaal is adamant,he would get his man no doubt
Would be a good lesson for the likes of RVP and Rooney.
Rumours going around that Moyes was making Ferdinand watch videos of Jagielka. It doesn't matter if Rio is past his sell by date that's direspect because Jagielka will never be as good as Rio in his prime and he'll never win the amount of trophies Rio has in his career
Rio is a top defender, its his physicality letting him down. His game reading ability is top class, he can predict opposition's play, he leads the defense keeping the team focussed at all time, keep the line straight. Not to mention that the Rio and Vidic partnership is the strongest in our history, and they kept the longest clean sheet in our history.

So there's no doubt he was world class, but that's the past, he should retire by the end of the season. Or maybe Van Gaal can give him a knock and tell him that he's too weak to be a United defender.
I don't see whats the fuss about that. Jagielka was a top defender, perhaps not as good as Rio but you can always learn something new from another individual. Even Cristiano Ronaldo can learn something new and useful by watching a player like Januzaj for example.
Hey Fellow Reds ! Thanks to all those that have already answered to my MUFC survey these past days ! I appreciate it very much !

I still need more answers so those who haven’t answered yet please do it ! It only takes 3 minutes !

Greatest team on earth ! Greatest community of fans ! Thank you
I hope we do go forward with clearing out some of the players that we had planned to. Likes of Anderson, Rio and especially Young and maybe even Nani. I fear the new manager under the pretense of wanting to reevaluate the squad might not sell these players so here is to hoping that he takes advice from Giggs regarding who should leave and let them move on without any reprieve because as fans we know they are done here.
hear hear. everyone here might have a different list ( I assume young is on most people's list, nani's not on mine) but we definitely need a banger of a transfer window.

If it does end up being van gaal, he won't officially start until mid-july possibly, but I don't see any reason why he can't give woodward a list upon signing a contract.
You forgot to add Cleverley to that list.
I agree mate, I don't think the new man will take it easy on anyone though, I think most of the footballing world knows who we need to get rid of, I think the club themselves have put the wheels in motion for a few of them already who just plain have to go.

I imagine this transfer window will be a case of "take no prisoners".

@Cjay

Apparently Everton are preparing an 8 million bid for Cleverley, Martinez likes him, might be just what Cleverley needs as he isn't up to it here.
@mufc1990

It would be funny if Martinez turns Cleverley into a consistent performer and a game changer.
Van Gaal with Rene as his sidekick,

Dream combo!
+1
Add Giggs there
Happy for giggs and scholes to be involved. Not Phil Neville.
"I know there's a lot of people speculating that they need somebody with big experience out there that has managed a club at the very top level but we are talking about a continuity, something like what Sir Alex Ferguson did.
"There is never going to be someone like Sir Alex Ferguson but what we're given here is a young manager who is looking to break in. He's not got the managerial skills but we thought that David Moyes had those skills of going into Manchester United with the experience that he had for 11 years being at Everton and the wonderful job that he'd done but he hasn't been able to turn things over at Manchester United.
"I think for togetherness and getting the results and playing a certain way, a brand of football that is more eye-catching, the Man United way, I feel that Ryan Giggs is the right person." - Dwight Yorke
Manchester United set to beat Chelsea in £30m deal for Luke Shaw

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/apr/23/manchester-united-beat-chelsea-luke-shaw-transfer-david-moyes
I cant see any transfer's going through until the new man is appointed or we at least get a nod on transfers from the new man, he doesn't have to be in the job for the transfers to take place.

I think Pellegrini gave the go ahead on Fernandhino before he was "officially" appointed. Given the fact Van Gaal is the favourite and he has the world cup to focus on he wont be available for a period of the summer, if he wants the job he will have to indicate to us that he is taking it so we can get to work on his targets.
+1
Luke Shaw is quality but he isn't worth 30 million
+3
thats the price for young english talent i guess these days. jetro willems could be bought for less i believe. juan bernat imo much better version of buttner can play both lb and lw which would be great for overlapping with lm. but if shaw is our 30 million target. i guess we're going to be using the budget real quick on a few key players or potential growth players.

i cant wait to see giggs managerial game for united. guess some of us got to see this quicker than we anticipated. if can gaal came in with giggs as his understudy when gaal moves on or retires, giggs should have a grip on the ropes? wishful thinking but not an impossiblity.
Ricardo Rodriguez as well Mokster.

Shaw is a rip off and if its true about the wage offer the club wants to get a grip.
^ good suggestion. when compared to what we would have to pay southampton and nice point in wages, really think shaw is our guy? or just another smokescreen for someone else. i want to say the latter but theres a lot of noise coming from semi, to somewhat credible sources to actually hold some weight.
For the next ten years he could be our lb. I think this is a great deal since he's already one of the best lb's in the league at the moment, plus probably will get even better.
To be honest, the best candidate for the Man U gaffer, in my own opinion, is Roberto D'Mateo. In his short spell at chelsea, he won the FA cup and the holy grail, CL. He has better coaching record than most of the top coaches in the EPL (Wenger (no CL), Pellegrini, Rodgers, Martinez, Moyes etc) Mou is the ONLY coach in the EPL with a better record. Although RDM is better than Mou in managing Juan Matta's incredible potentials.

Someone please send this message to SAF and the Glazzier family!
There are no words.
+2
ahh comedy
Why not suggest AVB while we're at it? Pretty sure he would be up to it!
@ Holarstic

So that's why Chelsea let RDM go in the first place?

No thanks
no no no pick rafa benitez. genius this one.
@ManlloveUtd, Chelsea let him go because he was appointed interim coach but his record in the short spell enticed Emperor Roman to considered him for the job.

Because he was fired doesn't mean he is not a great coach; after all, coaches are hired and fired.
@ReDDevil98, glad is funny to u lol. Pleasure to make your day!
hodgson might be free after the world cup. should go for him
^^Please tell me you're being sarcastic? Please...
I've got mixed feelings about Van Gall tbh. I know he's got the credentials for the job and he guarantees success somehow, but he's sometimes like a dictator and immune to advise. I've read a lot of the German press, when he was the manager of Bayern Munich and there was a lot of criticsm going on. This article sums it up perfectly:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/raphael_honigstein/04/14/vangaal.bayern/

But still, I wouldn't mind him as a short term solution, because he would guarantee at least a top 4 finish. I just feel like his personality doesn't fit to the club.
We've got angry players in the past, and they worked greatly for us. But not sure about an angry manager, we're way too inexperienced with managers :P.
Moyes is incredibly proud after managing Man Utd. His full statement:

To have been appointed as manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest football clubs in the world, was and remains something of which I will always be incredibly proud.

Taking charge after such a long period of continuous stability and success at the club was inevitably going to be a significant challenge, but it was one which I relished and never had a second thought about taking on.

The scale of the manager’s job at United is immense, but I have never stepped away from hard work and the same applies to my coaching staff. I thank them for their dedication and loyalty throughout the season.

We were fully focused and committed to the process of the fundamental building that is required for the senior squad. This had to be achieved whilst delivering results in the Barclays Premier League and the Champions League. However, during this period of transition, performances and results have not been what Manchester United and its fans are used to or expect, and I both understand and share their frustration.

In my short time at the club I have learnt what special places Old Trafford and Carrington are. I would like to thank the United staff for making me feel so welcome and part of the United family from my first day. And of course thank you to those fans who supported me throughout the season. I wish you and your club all the best for the future.

I have always believed that a manager never stops learning during his career and I know I will take invaluable experience from my time as United’s manager. I remain proud to have led the team to the quarter finals of this year’s Champions League and I remain grateful to Sir Alex Ferguson for believing in my ability and giving me the chance to manage Manchester United.”

I am not thankful to the players ??
