Another day, Another Manchester United snooze-fest

Manchester United drawing 0-0 away at Norwich. Doesn’t sound too appealing, does it?

The standard is low, the excitement is non-existent and we could well be watching the dying days of Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United reign. Fans must be one the edge of a Moyes-esque protest, at this sort of performance. The stats don’t lie.

Boring truly is the word for it.

It’ll take far more than this to put me off football, but Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United are hardly a ‘ bums off seats’ team these days, are they? No Rashford, no Martial and all we have is the occasional comical cock-up from Memphis Depay.

Sideways pass after sideways pass has made LvG’s United one of the least exciting teams in Europe. 43 Premier League goals this season is a pretty dire effort for a team on the cusp of the top four, even Bournemouth have scored the same number as that!

At least Newcastle are seldom boring, hey!

Defensively United have still been a little shaky. Cameron Jerome missed an early sitter than could’ve actually sparked a decent football match, whilst the Red Devils have looked short of idea in the final third and happy to just knock the ball around in midfield. Van Gaal hasn’t got his players up for this one and they don’t seem to be playing like a side who could push for a Champions League place with a win here….
