This fan video from yesterday’s game at Old Trafford shows Manchester United fans booing their team off the pitch after the final. The fan who recorded the video in the famous Stretford end says “I am not booing but you can get the feeling here at old trafford now, i am not booing, but the fact that people are booing after every single game shows the sentiment we are in, we are just not impressed with what we are seeing, SCORE, SNORE, DRAW, it is football but not as we know it! SHOCKING!”
It appears Manchester United fans are fed up with Louis Van Gaal’s lack of entertaining football in the same way West Ham fans turned on Sam Allardyce their patience ran off.
Like Big Sam, LVG says he doesn’t understand the fan’s frustration. Asked about the mounting criticism of his conservative tactics, United boss van Gaal said: “I don’t understand that they are shouting ‘attack, attack’ because we are the attacking team and not West Ham.That is not only today but in every game it’s like that because we are always more dominating than our opponents. When they don’t like the style of play for Manchester United everybody knows it didn’t fit. All the teams of mine are playing like that.When I have been in Barcelona or Bayern Munchen or AZ (Alkmaar), we have played like that.But I think when I meet the fans on the streets or wherever, they are very happy with Manchester united and with me, but you have to score.And when you don’t score, then it lets points go. Because of that now we are three points behind Leicester City because we don’t score one goal today and that is the difference.”
Is it the beginning of the end for LVG?
