Having Giggs as his assistant is liking United fans holding a knife to his back ready and waiting for if things don't go well.

Rooney won't be a fan, but that's arguably beneficial for United rather than a bad thing.

Giggseh as his assistant!

And only a three-year contract? They must think he's only half as good as David Moyes.

Obviously UTD won't do worse than this season (unfortunately) given where they finished.  And as they're coming from such a poor position van gaal basically has a freebie next season, where just being in the running for 4th place will be viewed as progress over this season.  Depends who he signs and how quickly he can get them to integrate.  Even if he signs top players it often takes a third of a season or so (or a full season in the case of Spurs) for new signings to bed into a side.

So from United's perspective, Van Gaal gets them back to top four/title contention, while bringing on Giggs to succeed him, being unlikely to want to linger more than 3 or 4 years at the most. The marriage of an egotistical Dutch control freak with the dynastic ambitions of the Twats of '92, overseen by lingering, brooding presence of Ferguson. Surely nothing can go wrong...

Hope fixture list throws up UTD v Chelsea early and then hope he falls out with Maureen right away.  That'd be good to sit back and watch.

So that's the management team in place.

Now, they just need about 11 players, all of which need to work immediately, and they are laughing.

This is going to be great fun. He's a great coach, and they'll definitely challenge for top 4, but he's a fruitloop. He'll have knocked Rooney out by September, shown Cleverly his testicles by Christmas and headbutted 3 journalists before the season's out.

He's brilliant but the squad needs a lot of work and it may take a season before they are in title contention. Could implode, of course, but I don't know how likely that really is. Regardless, it's hard to see him lasting beyond three years, maybe two years.

He's mad obviously, but also a very, very good manager. He probably wont be there for long (he never seems to last in any job), but they are going to be much better next season.

Giggs as assistant: appoint the guy gagging for the job to mind your back. That'll end well   :P

Van Gaal's great though if he can get along, at least for a while. We'll see.

Giggs said: "I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager. Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach and I know I will learn a lot about coaching from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters. Manchester United has been a huge part of my life and I'm delighted to be able to continue that relationship in such a key role."

Bit disappointed they got him had hope the Giggs hype would build & appoint him. I think the experience of Van Gaal is exactly what they need in the club.  :(

Van Gaal has been appointed the new manager of Man United; with a Dutchman at helm now the red devils can hope to rule over England like the Holland cricket team.
