Louis van Gaal is certainly hanging on by a tether in the Manchester United hot-seat at this moment in time, and yesterday he met the media ahead of another potentially tricky game away at Newcastle. The Iron Tulip has admitted his United concerns, saying the speed of our attacks isn’t quick enough.
“I am concerned with attacking, the ball speed of the passes. Attack is more intuition than defending, it’s more difficult.” Van Gaal said.
Its clear for all to see that the problem has been in the final third of the pitch. The players don’t seem to want to move for each other, and they don’t look like they want to get forward in typical swashbuckling style.
At the end of the day it always comes back to the manager and it feels as though Louis van Gaal is restricting his players from attacking to build out from the back.
