If the run up to the competitive season is any sign of things to come, I would be a very happy fan. Manchester United have won every single one of our preseason fixtures.
A 7-0 victory over LA Galaxy got the ball rolling and that was followed by impressive victories over Roma, Inter, Real Madrid and Liverpool. Then, last night, Marouane Fellaini grabbed a last minute goal to give our preseason the perfect ending with a 2-1 win over Valencia.
So far, so good for Louis Van Gaal…
Many people will be saying that it’s only preseason, but the truth is that our new coach has given us the perfect preparation for the upcoming season which will be pivotal for Manchester United Football Club.
Last season was an ugly transition to life after Sir Alex Ferguson and Van Gaal is now hopefully going to make the transition far smoother and easier for us fans to cope with. If we can continue our run of form into this weekend’s opener for the new Premier League season, it would be the ideal start to our attempt to retain the title that we lost to our City rivals last season.
