Let's look at what Van Gaal has done in his short time with United.
He's taken away the entire striking core that was dangerous and replaced them with an unproven 19 year old that didn't exactly burn up Ligue 1. Chicha and Van Persie are more than serviceable, and damn sure more proven.
In the midfield, he's unable to find even a low grade version of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, and while it's a tall order, they're Manchester United. Players are supposed to want to come to Old Trafford. Barcelona signed cats who are willing to sit out for half the season, you mean to tell me yall aren't on that level?
You've got a ton of guys that are talking between each other and saying that they don't want to work for United. LvG's rep stinks out here, fam. He'll gut your team, sure. But great managers will take existing pieces and make the team better, and United had some pretty damn good pieces just three seasons ago. Hell, he managed to upset the best player in the squad in De Gea, and now he's gone.
Just be realistic fam. You don't have to lie to kick it. Manchester United are in a tailwind, and it starts from the top. Ownership is cashing in on the brand, management is helpless, and the manager just might be senile.
