Speaking after the embarrassing defeat to Liverpool on Thursday, United boss, Louis van Gaal, claimed that his three year plan is still working as his team are still fighting on three fronts: top four, Europa League and FA Cup.
We are in three different competitions, and at this stage of the season a lot of other teams and managers cannot say that. We still have the chance to win something.
When asked about United’s inconsistency this season, he had this to say:
I have to always keep changing the team. I have been unable to play the same lineup in many matches because of injuries or tired players. When you are in three competitions and you don’t have too many players it is difficult.

As a United fan, and I’m sure the same goes for most of you, listening to Louis van Gaal’s excuses just makes me want to push my fingers into my eyes.
So, your three year plan is still working is it, Louis? If your three year plan was to have us struggling for top four, getting eliminated from a winnable Champions League group stage and possibly guiding us toward another Champions League-less season, then yes. Your plan is working.
And don’t blame injuries and tiredness of players as an excuse for our poor season. You’ve had millions of pounds and several transfer windows to prevent that from happening. And didn’t you recently say that NOT buying players was intentional so that you could give youth a chance?
You’re making it up as you go, Louis. You’re making up excuses to suit the situation. Well, you’re just making a fool of yourself.
