Earlier on in the week Paul Scholes was damning in his criticism of Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United side, but tonight the ginger prince was much more complimentary. However he was then asked whether United can win the league, and it was a resounding no from the former United midfielder.
“Is it a team that can go on to win the league? I don’t think so. Top four? That’s a definite possibility.” Paul Scholes said.
At the end of the day, he’s right. Personally at this point in time I think it’ll be a struggle to make it into the top four given the way we’re playing. The title is certainly out of reach however, and the best chance for silverware this term certainly has to be the FA Cup.
One positive to take out of last nights result was the way Manchester United played, particularly on the counter attack. If Louis van Gaal can find the right balance between attack and defence, we could well be heading in the right direction.
