Who mentioned Les Patterson? In his second season at Spurs the Spanish 'looker' is knocking at the door. Now let me see .. our 3rd season post Fergie?

Leicester's move towards scrappy 1-0 wins gives me a little doubt about them, while Spurs still look capable of smashing teams. You may be right, though. Ranieri deserves a lot of credit for seemingly making them more defensively sound, which they've needed since scoring against deep defences became more difficult with fewer counter attacking possibilities.

It has also been previously stated that is will be his last season before retirement, not sure how concrete that is but you would have to be concerned at the possible effect that has on the squad
i'm not sure him having just 1 year left isn't actually a positive... it means that if they're brave the club could give him the chance to develop the youth set-up further and see where it takes us long term. this manager is clearly giving them a path to the first team and their motivation must be huge to work hard and make sure they get their chance. it also makes coming to united a tremendous pull for young talented kids everywhere... united haven't won anything for 3 yrs, so is another year really going to matter in the grand scheme of things if this works?

i'm also unimpressed with some of his transfer activity, but by the same token he's made some very good signings as well - martial, blind, schneiderlin and darmian all have long term potential at united, for example. we could do with 2 or 3 in and out i reckon, not much more than that. muller, a hummels type and a combative midfielder with legs...

It's definitely the best thing for these young players for Van Gaal to stay, and hopefully add and bring through more. And in the long term it's probably better for the club. But we deal in a sport that is largely about the short term, and fan consensus will reflect that.

Top four and an FA Cup would probably help adjust that, mind

Might sound a touch disingenuous, but getting Spurs in with a shout is not quite the big deal as everyone is saying. IMO. The league this year is genuinely shit. The French league is better. The quality is a shambles, from the pitch to the boardroom of almost every club. Money over teams has prevailed, Utd as much as anywhere. Spurs have bucked that trend & maybe it's all Poch. But Levy has a new stadium to finance... Maybe Poch is as lucky as Van Gaal? Perfect storm type scenario tbh. Same for Leicester. Not to discredit either (well... Not too much) but you have to acknowledge just how **** English football is at the moment.

Maybe if he wins it, strengthens & he can come in after Jose when he inevitably goes full spastic in two seasons after getting us back at the pointy end.
