Another week signals another loan round up, compiling news of the United stars plying their trade around Europe. This weekend was all centred around the European glamour tie of Real Madrid vs Barcelona in ‘El Clasico’. However, United’s own little pea Chicharito failed to feature in the tie, won by Madrid 3-1, nor did he play as Los Blancos dished out a convincing 3-0 win away at Anfield midweek. One player who did feature for Real Madrid in some capacity, was young Uruguayan Guillermo Varela. Despite Castilla coach Zinedine Zidane today being banned from Coaching for three months, the reserve side managed a 0-0 against Soucellamos.
After the draw at West Brom last week I suggested that I had no idea what Louis Van Gaal’s ‘philosophy’ of football, or rather the philosophy which he is trying to impose on United, actually is. After the Chelsea game I’m still none the wiser, but following the last gasp equaliser and bedlam that followed it was hard to give a f*ck.
David De Gea -Yet another spectacular performance from the Spaniard. Finally getting the recognition he thoroughly deserves. 8
