Manchester United’s season was summed up in a nutshell tonight. Louis van Gaal’s men fell short when it mattered most, and lost 3-2 to West Ham as they said one last goodbye to the Boleyn Ground before moving to their new home.
From minute one, United weren’t good enough, and it felt as though they lacked the belief, energy and drive to push for that final Champions League place.
Somehow Louis van Gaal’s men managed to get themselves in front courtesy of some magic from Anthony Martial, but unfortunately they couldn’t hold on. It felt as though West Ham just wanted it more, and they more than deserved the victory on the night.
That leaves United’s Champions League dream in tatters going into the final round of fixtures this weekend, and its going to take nothing short of a miracle from here on out.
As you’d imagine, United’s fans weren’t best pleased with the result…

Get the feeling LVG doesn't get too upset after losses. Players may care less. Smiling, hugging Bilic in such a match?? While Losing? #mufc

Win, lose or draw the football has been dire all season. Sick of excuses….finish outside the top 4 and van Gaal has to go.#mufc

A Robbo or a Keane would've thrown the damn phone & player out the window & told them to focus on the match! #mufc

A United team managed by Fergie would have won a season like this by the end of March. #MUFC

I certainly wouldn't be banking on it, but it still wouldn't surprise me if City bottled it again on Sunday & we ended up in the CL. #MUFC
