Food for Thought

With a new era upon us, the Louis van Gaal era, was last night an eye-opener as to what Manchester United supporters can expect next season.

Van Gaal, in charge of the Dutch side, saw his charges emphatically thrash the reigning World Cup holders, Spain.

The manner in which Van Gaal`s total football swept aside the team many believe are genuine contenders for the 2014 World Cup, will give us all a lift as we try to forget the horrors of our season under David Moyes.

Leading the charge last night, as the Dutch completely overwhelmed the Spanish was Robin van Persie with our striker scoring what many are championing as the best headed goal in the World Cup Finals.

Aided by the excellent Danny Blind and Arjen Robben, Holland showed that under Louis Van Gaal they have a chance of going far in this competition.

The only downside being that although we had, apparently, expressed an interest in bring Arjen Robben to Old Trafford it seems as if it is a deal that is going nowhere, which is, in my opinion, a crying shame.

It's a result that's got the fan base excited but we must bear in mind that it was only one game. Must be said though if he could do that with that Dutch team against that Spanish side who were massively superior in every position par Van Persie and Robben you've got to wonder what miracles he could pull with some of the dross Fergie left us with.

In other news thus far this tournament Van Persie has shown exactly why he should be the first choice striker whilst Rooney has shown why he shouldn't be anywhere near the frontline. Van Persie and Mata are better in his two best positions whilst out wide he was hapless. Hopefully with Spain's spanking at the hands of the Dutch Mata might actually be entrusted with some game time, what with the dross some of his national team mates served up it would be baffling if he isn't afforded some.
