Manchester United Blog: 3 Reasons Why Sticking With LVG Makes Sense

3 Reasons Why United Must Not Fire LVG

Manchester United have been through a roller- coaster ride already this season, much like Louis van Gaal’s whole stint at Old Trafford. From the lows of succumbing to defeats to both Bournemouth and Norwich, to the high of completing a double over Liverpool, it’s difficult to make something out of how United have been this season. It’s been a season which overflows with defensive resilience but has got buckets of attacking incapabilities too, piling up the negative aura around Louis van Gaal’s presence at the club.


And as United lie at the 5th place in the league, 2 points behind 4th placed Spurs, there is still a lingering hope that a top four finish is very much possible, if not the title challenge. But, much has been made of Louis van Gaal’s approach to getting things right at United, and he has been at the end of loads of stick. And in a season riddled with inconsistencies and performances which have oozed unattractiveness, it is bound to happen.

Amidst all the speculation that currently surrounds Louis van Gaal, here are some reasons why the board must stick with the Iron Tulip.

  1. Flashes of attractive football

The playing style that has been compared to robotics and has said to have bounded players to chains has been a constant source of concern for the fans and the need for goals. And although, United have been boring for a majority of the season, there have been glimpses of football that is reminiscent of what the fans want- fast paced, counter attacking football. Against Newcastle, United scored thrice and adhered a counter-attacking style that often caught the Magpies off guard. Even against Chelsea, United played a highly impressive first half, in which they could’ve scored twice or thrice, provided they could’ve put away the chances they got.

Van Gaal is slowly slackening the rigidity the playing style carried to a high-tempo counter-attacking system, which suits the modern day more.
