    LVG sacked as #MUFC manager. £5m pay off. Destined to be remembered as the fall guy. Accompanied by a video of his famous, hilarious fall in front of a fourth official.

    A simple look at the comments from people on the BBC articles shows that there's a lot of fickle people out there. Every comment that basically comes down to "United are scum cos they are, I don't need evidence cos they gonna fail with Maureen neway" is met with a hundred people upvoting it, tossing one another off with glee.

    No. As discussed before, it's considered managing the business. They'd only have to announce it on the NYSE if it was a director.

    If these reports are confirmed, I want to thank LVG for his service to club, the FA cup (which could be a good new beginning for us) and wish him a good retirement.

    I really don't believe Sky Sports anymore, so I'm glad BBC reporters are at the forefront of this. Only recently Sky Sports were reporting that Van Gaal will be here for another season or something like that (can't find the tweet, someone tell me I'm not making it up?), only to then 'break' Mourinho to United with 'Sky Sources' a few hours after the BBC.

    I'm also glad Giggs is deciding to go off and do his own thing, hopefully. Can't really see him and Mou working together that well, but I fecking hope Mourinho sticks with these youngsters Giggs and LVG brought through, particularly TFM and Rashford.

    I was certain for months that Van Gaal would be sacked at the end of the season but it's still a big relief to see it's actually happened.

    Considering what a dogshit season it was, it's not been a bad week has it?

    Looks like this is done. Ideal, shame the statement is expected at 1 pm. I start work at that time and won't be able to to pay as much attention to it as I could now.

    Louis Van Gaal was last seen:
    Viewing thread LVG Out Thread | Several Journos: LvG & staff sacked, a few seconds ago

    He's probably about to say thanks.

    This sums up my feelings really well. I've liked him from the minute he came to us. We've had some good moments (unlike the 10 months of abject mediocrity under Moyes) but it's time for him to go.

    Thanks for what you did do Louis, the record books will show your last game was out first post-Fergie trophy. Cheers and enjoy Portugal.

    We cant know the details of what's gone on but I cant see a scenario that reflects that well on him.

    Either he had influence, in which case he is incriminated in our failure.
    Or he didnt have any influence, in which case he's wasted two years of his life gaining very little experience (which you get from taking decisions, making mistakes, earning successes etc, not from being a bystander).

    Obviously the reality will be somewhere in between but wherever he is on the scale I dont see how he should get any credit from Van Gaal's tenure. I suspect he's closer to the impotent end of the spectrum, personally, and I think if he is serious he really needs to strike out on his own.

    That's what you get when you act nice with the manager hoping he won't insist on those 5m. We should have fired him in December

    Would have been more than 5m, and its possible Jose wouldn't have been able to take the job (gardening leave)

    You're supposed to ignore all that and the other media outlets who have said it's on then off, then he has 3 games to save himself, then another 3 and another 3 or that they somehow missed every 'fallout' incident detailed in yesterday's articles at the time they were happening. Their sources in and around the club are (and have always been) impeccable.

    Well we can't just copy paste the Moyes statement as LvG deserves thanks for a few more things than just for "hard work".
