Top ClaretandHugh blogger Pete Ellis has been casting his ironic eye over the weekend events at Old Trafford and clearly can’t handle some of the stuff coming out of the Manchester United camp but finds it impossible to suppress a grin.
As we all know, Sir Alex Ferguson loved a good bottle of red and it would appear that LVG loves a good whine himself. The hissy fit from England’s most successful club is as laughable as it is ridiculous.
Following Man United snatching a draw at home on Sunday, the club has done little but bemoan their bad luck to anyone that will listen. Even those PPI callers have hung up on LVG, such has been the man’s whinging!
My favourite quote post game, came from sloth himself: “Payet dived! (and before taking a breath, LVG continued…) Yes there WAS a little CONTACT, but you can fall another way….”
Just let that sink in. If you don’t grin a little, you’re a better man than me! Apparently Payet should fall a different way? Perhaps a reverse pike somersault, with a twist? Maybe star jumps would suffice? Or perhaps as LVG himself did he did on the touchline when making exactly the same complaint against Alexis Sanchez in the recent game against Arsenal.
In any case, would someone at the Carrington training ground should perhaps introduce Mr Van Gaal to Ashley Young? (If they can get him off the 10 metre board)!
Chris Smalling and LVG have squealed louder than that pig at David Cameron’s university initiation!
The replay will now be a tad more spicy, and did that United team look like one that was up for a scrap on a school night in the east end?
Did they frighten anyone?
Darren Randolph looked like he was on a sun lounger for most of the match, and seemed to move when Schweinsteiger gave him a nudge. Germans and sun loungers eh?
Regardless of the disappointment of not finishing the job, I think the replay is there for the taking. Focus West Ham, and you will get your chance at immortality!
