United hopes rest on FA Cup replay

After what has been at best a disappointing season at Old Trafford, the upcoming FA Cup replay against West Ham United perhaps provides the final opportunity for Manchester United to achieve some form of success this year.

With Louis Van Gaal also looking to the famous competition as the last chance saloon in terms of his personal job security, a trip to East London would certainly not have been the preferred destination for such a fledgling team.

Chris Smalling reckons that the club are in desperate need of a comfortable win

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling reckons that the club are in desperate need of a comfortable win to improve their confidence.

He also wishes that such a win should come in the upcoming Europa League match against Danish champions Midtjylland. The first leg of the last 32 tie between the two teams will take place away from Old Trafford. Since the crucial second leg is at home, United are overwhelming favourites to reach the last 16. United are likely to put more focus on winning the competition since it would mean another trophy and a straight path to the Champions League group stages irrespective of the league position that United find themselves at the end of the campaign.

Fans right to Boo Team

Louis van Gaal admitted that Manchester United supporters were right to criticise the team after they fell to a 2-1 loss against Danish champions Midtjylland in the Europa League.

This competition is now seen as a major helping step for United in their efforts to remain as a Champions League club.

Is LVG on borrowed time?

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has weathered a very difficult storm at Old Trafford this season as he has managed to survive at the club despite some poor form which sees the club outside the top four in the league table.

Although Van Gaal has been given the opportunity to turn the fortunes of his side around for now, if United do fail to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the campaign, the board may not see his future being at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman took over the reins in May 2014. In his first season with United, his opening brief was to get the club back into the Champions League following a one-year absence, which he achieved.

Carrick set to be offered a new contract

Even at the age of 34, Michael Carrick still manages to get consistent playing time in Manchester United. The veteran player has recently finished recovering from an injury which kept him out of the pitch for a substantially long period of time.

Michael Carrick is the oldest active player in Manchester United and his contract in Old Trafford will expire in the summer at the end of the season. This means that in a few months’ time Carrick will turn into a free agent but reports and rumors are linking the experienced midfielder to Newcastle United as well as taking up a managerial position in Old Trafford.

LVG knows that fans expect more

Since the day that Louis van Gaal was elected as the new coach of Manchester United, the Premier League club has managed to stay in the higher section of the English League but they haven’t been able to make that final push that is needed to win the league.

During the 2014-15 Premier League season, Manchester United landed the 4th spot and the Red Devils are currently positioned in the 5th spot which isn’t a terrible spot but it isn’t a fantastic one either.

Manchester United cult heroes: Park Ji-Sung

Inspired by Betway's recent article on FA Cup cult heroes, it appeared a perfect time to take a stroll down memory lane and pick out our own plucky Manchester United underdog that managed to etch themselves into a rich Old Trafford tapestry of talents.

Park Ji Sung

With that brief in mind, there was one name in particular which sprang out, though it is more commonly a quiet whisper synonymous with Manchester United's modern-day success: Park Ji-Sung.

The footballer who spawned a thousand unfortunate terrace chants about dogs as a South Korean delicacy; Park is justly classed as an all-time great and icon of East Asian football but, back at former club Man Utd, he is still remembered fondly as a cult hero in those hallowed Old Trafford halls – which is not to do one of their most loyal servants an injustice.

Replacements for LVG lining up

Manchester United have been dropping further and further down the Premier League standings. Having started off the season as one of the main contenders of winning the league (especially as they were positioned in the top spots after a few weeks), after a series of draws and defeats, it seems like claiming the domestic title might be too far-fetched and possible replacements for Louis van Gaal are already being taken into consideration.

Will Manchester United do business this month?

Who’d be a Manchester United fan right now eh? United are currently struggling to inspire confidence this season but did find the net three times on Tuesday night against Newcastle. Unfortunately for Louis van Gaal’s side, they also let three goals in as they were held to a draw at St. James’ Park against a spirited Magpies outfit.

Ferguson and Rooney

If nothing else, the result showed fans that perhaps Wayne Rooney isn’t the problem and United simply need more balance throughout the side. We discuss our thoughts on United’s current standings and whether they need to invest heavily in January or wait until the summer transfer window.
