    For me Giggs has to shoulder some of the blame , he could see where it was going wrong and just seemed to sit back and let it happen (we dont know what happens behind closed doors), his position is no untenable.

    As glad as I am that he's gone, I hope he isn't actually 'seething' with the way it has been handled. There was a video clip of him at the press conference looking rather dishevelled and forlorn with the FA Cup titled 'van Gaal 'proud' of his FA Cup win'. Something about it made me feel really rather sorry for him...

    Regardless of whether he didn't meet our expectations, I like him and I wish we'd been given time to get our house in order before the news was released. Why did it have to taint the FA Cup win? The first thing my mum spoke to me on the phone was about the van Gaal/Mourinho situation... Regardless of what people say, it HAS slightly spoilt it, and it gives a good indication of what it'll be like under Mourinho and Mendes.

    Feels weird to me, and I've been a part of the "sack him now" since December. I remember the relief and elation when it was Moyes, because I just really didn't like him one iota. Nothing about what he did was good.

    The football has stunk something rotten under Louis, but I still quite like him as a personality and the way he has handled the media. There's a lot of negatives, but unlike Moyes, there were significant positives. Still feel sort of glad he went out with a cup, and happy now for the change to happen.

    I'll miss him a little, in a weird, inexplicable way.

    I very highly doubt he's getting a £5m pay off with 1 yr on his contract and having missed out on CL football.

    The club has sacked the manager and the team he appointed. When LVG was brought in, the speculation was that he wanted his own assistant but Giggs was kept to appease those who thought that we needed a "club man" as part of the setup. So the board probably don't associate him with LVG, and as they see LVG as an authoritarian manager they probably don't view Giggs as having enough influence to be able to have been part of our problems (regardless of whether or not that's true).

    I'd be happy for Giggs to be offered the chance to continue on as a coach. He has a lot to offer in that regard (except perhaps the personal life). At the very least if he's leaving I'm happy it was on a high with the FA Cup win, and hope that he takes a sensible approach to his managerial career by taking on a team in the lower leagues and working up.

    Probably nobody cares ... Giggs was a part of Moyes, Louis' regimes. If that was the best he could offer, we'll be better without him.

    The FA cup went a lot to redeeming himself in a lot of people's eyes. But nowhere good enough and no one would have been able to suffer through another year of VG ball. Glad Maureen in, let's piss everyone off and not give a feck again.

    seems to me like a snake in the grass, plotting Van Gaal's downfall whilst prepping the hotseat for himself, not everything can be solved by f*cking someone over though.

    Apologies. It's BBC sports journalist confirming that Van Gaal has been fired. Tweet reads as:

    Thanks again and seriously no need for apologies. The firewall at work prevents the twitter content to be shown. Stupid work. I am pressing F5 furiously on the home page waiting for an official announcement and a new thread! :D

    Not in my eyes. I love the FA cup win, it means more to us than some people seem to get. He's also at least built a starting point and let's be honest, at least he fought the press.

    However, there can't be any United fans who weren't bored to tears under him and some of the comments lately have been plain ridiculous. I'm glad he's gone personally, and I don't consider his reign a success overall at all.

    I'm looking forward to enjoying football again, that's the main thing for me.

    Personally not sure how can you say this - because like you say - we don't know what happens behind closed doors.
