It's genuinely mind boggling to me that people can be arguing that Van Gaal did a decent job, or that we shouldn't have sacked him. How can they forget just how bad the football was? I mean, it was only a few years ago. Good god.the bold part is silly - I didnt say they were horrible
Martial and Rashford were our brightest players but generally no players in that system excelled - if you think they did well we can just agree to disagree
we had about a month of genuinely great football in Van Gaals time at the club when we beat Spurs, City and Liverpool at Anfield.
aside of that you had a largely ineffective team in spite of his spending- he hasn't a clue how to use Di Maria and there were many games where we fashioned only a shot or two on target
as for Rafael - hes the last right back we had that had a great season albeit in Fergie's final season - hes been very decent by all accounts for Lyon whilst Valencia and Young have been very limited players.
