Luckily their next league match is against Everton, so they don't face much of a challenge!

Aloysius Paulus Maria "Louis" van Gaal and Mourinho were corporate appointments.

Moyes and OGS were clearly Ferguson appointments.

All totally shite.

Why? Because the club have no footballing direction.  They exist only to make money.  Ferguson? He WAS the footballing direction, when he went, that went with him.

They need to decide where they are going, put a proper structure in place and hire the players that will fit their plan rather than those who might look good as an emoji

Nice to see this overpaid clusterfuck of a midtable team scrape a lucky win. It keeps them in the hunt and motivated to pull off a miracle against their city superiors.

I know, unfortunately the new manager boost seems to be running out at exactly the wrong time for us and they have a couple of potentially tough games coming up with Everton and Chelsea either side of City, them not making top 4 would be a nice bonus regardless of what happens to us.

It's just people trying hard to be a top red and out bitter each other, all that matters to me is us winning the league, this lot are of no relevance to us but may take points off of City, probably unlikely with the way they're playing but it's a derby and the mancs need the points, same with Spurs next week

The same people who're crying over the decisions today, and the rest they've had through the season, and the one's Spurs have had, and the late winners Spurs have had, will all be celebrating if either of them nick a draw or a win with a dodgy late goal, the two faced c*nts ;D

The same people will also be calling Palace every shithouse name under the sun 5 minutes into the game tomorrow as well no doubt ;D

So you'll be another one bitching if they get one that earns a draw/win against City?

Thought not, who gives a fuck? they're a million miles from us right now so should be nothing more than a cheap laugh and an afterthought

Might just be me being an arl c*nt who remembers when they were proper shite? they're a complete irrelevance again apart from when we play them and the odd time they're playing a team we're competing with

I’ll be disappointed if they don’t smash the penalty record against City. Can’t see them scoring any goals through actual football played.

It is almost miraculous that they are still in a top 4 battle at this stage.

I'm not that arsed how many supporters they have, either in Manchester or around the world, when I first started going the match in 1980 I think they had bigger crowds which wasn't surprising considering the shite the city was going through, fact was they were fucking grim, the papers loved them and they were seen as a glamour club but in terms of what we were doing they were a fucking irrelevance apart from whenever we played them, maybe a bit of a cheap laugh when their result was announced and some taunting, or worse if you saw some of the banners at finals etc

That's all they were and for now they're firmly back in that box, they'll probably win things again in the future as they're too big and have the money but they'll never dominate again, just think loads of our support have grown up during the Ferguson era so like their spoilt support it's all they know and they "hate" them for it, the genuine hate had nothing to do with them being good or cheating/dodgy decisions or any of that shite and was more down to politics & support being made up of angry young men etc

Right now we're a million miles away from them but there's still people crying cos they've had some decisions that will have no bearing whatsoever on what we do, actually today's might have as had they not got them they could be too far adrift when they play City in a game that could affect US and that is all that matters, either way we'll finish well above them so I hope the c*nts are spawny as fuck in the next two league games, after that I couldn't give a fuck as I'll hopefully be too pissed

I don't think van Gaal was a bad appointment. Even though the clueless natives were restless by the end of the second season, there were signs of progress and results weren't that bad. He was integrating the youth players and slowly starting to implement a playing style. We all know that it's a long process to shift from a counter-attacking strategy to one oriented in ball retention especially if the players are not technically adept. Luckily both their board and supporters are impatient and somewhat entitled due to the long periods of success under Ferguson.

It's also clear that van Gaal was stabbed in the back by Woodward, who was busy tapping up Mourinho as soon as he was handed the sack at Chelsea. It's a moot point, but we would have likely seen a much stable Manchester United team today if van Gaal was given a couple of extra seasons to build that structure.

Being totally honest Van Gaal was probably the most sensible appointment they’ve made post-Ferguson. That alone tells you what a fucking mess they’ve been in since then.

Nope. In the City supporting areas they will, but in the Utd supporting areas, I live in one, they are still being brought up as Utd fans. My youngest is 8, his mates are 1 City due to his Dad, 3 liverpool - again Dads and all the others are Utd. The massive majority of shirts are Utd, in fact I see more Liverpool shirts than City shirts.

It's a derby, we all know form goes right out of the window in those games, especially when a miles better team plays a shit team. Barca will put them out of the CL on Tuesday, the league will be their only route into next seasons CL. Those of them whose agents aren't trying to get a move in the summer will want to be playing CL next season.

This is so true. they were really starting to control space and positioning like a top team. If they could have taken the time to develop players to fit the system, they could have got themselves up with the best teams in Europe again. So glad they didn't have any patience. 

Now they need a whole new squad and a tactical masterplan - they're in no-mans land.  ;D

Yeah, under Van Gaal, they knew how to play against big teams, their positioning was really good. They weren't parking the bus, they had a higher line & it was hard to get past their midfield due to the set-up. But they struggled when mid-table and lower mid-table sides by passed their midfield and then sat deep while defending. They were lost for creativity under those teams. But yes, they'd have improved massively over time. The only thing Van Gaal is no longer young now, this still wouldn't have been a long term project.

West Ham goal wrongly disallowed.

Utd given a non-penalty.

Antonio hits the crossbar.

De Gea saves Utd's bacon with a super save from an Antonio header.

Build up to Utd 2nd pen, Martial was offside.

West Ham bossed the game.

Don't let any Utd fan tell you we're lucky after that. Not even the first time it's happened this season either. They really are the masters of spawn.
