I did a commercial for AON last year for the north American market, I was in the directors box with Bobby Charlton and a few others. We got to talk about the ground and I said that when I used to go their in the middle fifties the ground was virtually flat to which he said that the reason it is like it is today is that Matt had gone over to the states to do a coaching course, and had returned to Manchester full of how the American stadiums were built. Could this have been why all grounds in the UK are like they are today. Anyway the question I am asking is did AON broadcast the commercial in Canada.

A BIT...........I honestly thought they were terrible. No idea, lacked pace and scared of shooting.
It doesn't bode well. Not sure what LVG can do about it, if its his style then I don't like it. Time will tell.

Based on performances we are extremely lucky to be where we are. I hope things get better in that department.

Paul, Pinky

The question is when will we select a regular team, at present I seem to be watching a team where one week we have the likes of Mata playing a brill games and next week he is dropped, Shaw comes on plays well then dropped.
LVG is good at what he does but how long before he decides what the team is? How can a team that was playing well for Alex suddenly require a refit. We have some good players who are a credit to the side, but are not getting to play on a regular basis. Fellini, Evans ( Is Van Persie on the way out).

The team that SAF left when he retired was a last legs squad that over performed due to his brillient managerial skills, he litrally dragged them over the winning post on his own.

Moyes inherited an aging squad (Giggs, Rio, Evra) with a host of underperforming imports (Anderson, Nani, ect) Moyes started the process of change but was not I believe given enough time to complete what he started.

Van Gaal has arrived and apart from position has not greatly moved the squad on statistically, he too is in the process of shaping the team to his vision.

I think given time (and if he qualifies for the Champions league he will get it) he will move out players that dont fit his requirements and bring in new faces that might, he will continue to elevate youngsters from the acadamy (that has allways been his style) and those who perform well will get regular games, restricting the better established players play time (that in itself will create problems)

Will we in the short term return to the glory days of SAF I think the answer is no, but given time will LVG keep us in the top level mix I think the answer is yes.

Cheers Trev

Thank you for a clear and consice? explanation. Having been a supporter since before the Babes played and died I have seen this before. We can ill afford to be in a situation like we are now, LVG will get the team he wants. But why not once he has made a firm choice of the position he wants the player to play keep him in that position, then he can select the next player, then the next etc. Finally arriving at a full team.

I agree with Kel's comments.
Ref was the best man on the pitch. Too many divers, whiners and drama queens. Wasn't too impressed with Welbeck either.
LOL concentrate on the top 4 now...........YEAH RIGHT.

Think about the teams performance last nite

now just image if they we're brick layers can you image the wall they would build with there apparent lack of commitment, skill and idea of what they are doing.

I don't think they had a unified understanding of the way thay want to play, to many blind alley runners, and no character, Young has been pilloried for diving previously, but now other players need to be sorted out by LVG its not the United way.

Good luck to the Gooners I hope they go all the way

As always looking at the funny side(no pun intended). I still say a regular team needed.
