This time last year was a strange time.
With Sir Alex Ferguson having retired and vacated the managerial chair, David Moyes had stepped into the hot-seat and was preparing to lead us into the new season.
Sadly, his tenure wasn`t a success and Manchester united had the worst season any defending Premier League champions had ever had.
The departure of Moyes opened the door for Ryan Giggs to have his first taste of managerial experience, however, despite the clamour to give the job to Giggs on a permanent basis, the element of sentimentality was rightly ignored and the board went for the far more experienced option of appointing Louis van Gaal, with Giggs securing the role as the Dutchman`s assistant.
Now, once again with a new season beckoning we`re eager to see how it`ll pan out, although we doubt it can match the awfulness of last season, something that`s not possible I`d hope.
One player waiting to show that this season will be different is Darren Fletcher with the fit-again Scottish midfielder remarking to the media ahead of the 2014 / 2015 season,
"We`ve got some new signings and a real buzz about the place again. I think everyone`s looking forward with great anticipation."
"It`s another season and an exciting one with a new manager coming in."
"We really want to push on from the disappointments of last season."
"I know all the players are thoroughly excited to get out there and get the team back where they belong."
Let`s hope that is something that happens although the fact we`ve not yet seriously strengthened our squad, apart form the acquisitions of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera does still trouble me!
