    GOAL Man Utd 1-0 Aston Villa (32 mins). Marcus Rashford turns in Antonio Valencia's cut-back with a smart finish.

    7 goals in 12 games.


    Why we spend on players that can't score when we have them in our youth academy!

    IMO we need MC to slip up and we win all our remaining games. We get ourselves into UCL next season. How we do it, not bother. One thing for sure, LVG needs to go no matter what happens. He is most responsible for where we are now. Sad to depend on others to slip. We are MU.

    Hopes of MC sliping will be rather slim ... so think we might just need to settle for no.5

    Getting into the FA cup final is important for us. But LVG considers a "success" for Man Utd if we win it is just too limp an excuse for his failure to bring us to UCL next year, if Arsenal or Man City dont slip up and we win all our remaining games. His task by MU board is to win the EPL title and bring us to UCL and if we fail to do so is IMO a total failure by LVG. FA cup is but a consolation and MU don't settle for it. Reminder of how much money we spent in the past year, its preposterous that LVG can still say a "success", trying to save his face and embarrassment. Dont get me wrong, winning FA cup is good but a small prize compare to his targets. Too many a times, opportunities were lost earlier by LVG wrong tactics, points were lost which we should not have.

    Dramatic semi finals

    An own goal, penalty save, injury time winner ...

    EVERTON 1 UNITED 2
    Scorers: Fellaini 34, Martial 90+3; Smalling o.g. 75



    and so will be heading for a week break before facing league leader!

    United has the darnest ability to lift our hopes up high and then send it crashing back down to earth quickly.

    GOAL Man Utd 1-0 Leicester (8 mins). Anthony Martial is at the far post to fire in a low shot from Valencia's cross

    MANCHESTER (AFP) - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal bizarrely compared Leicester defender Robert Huth's hair-pull on Marouane Fellaini with "sex masochism" and also tugged a television reporter by the hair in an eccentric attempt to defend his player.

    Van Gaal was quizzed on the incident which saw United midfielder Fellaini escape without punishment after elbowing Huth in the neck and opted to explain why the Belgian had reacted that way by getting physical with the reporter.

    Claiming Fellaini's hair had been grabbed by Huth in a deliberate piece of provocation, van Gaal reached out to do the same to his Sky Sports interviewer.

    "It was a very difficult match for the referee - when you see what Huth is doing with Fellaini, is that not a penalty?," van Gaal said.

    "When I grab your hair...Your hair is much shorter.

    "Every human being who is grabbed with their hair would react."

    Then in a separate interview with the BBC, van Gaal conjured up another odd expression to lambast Huth.

    "It is not in the books that somebody has to grab with the hair and pull from behind. Only in sex masochism, then it is allowed," he said.

    United will now wait to see if Fellaini is retrospectively punished by the Football Association for his offence.


    Football: Van Gaal bizarrely blasts Huth's hair-pull on Fellaini as 'sex masochism'

    Seldom see the boss hit back! Hahaha...

    I am sick and tired of LVG excuses. He contradicts himself by saying he is very arrogant and is one of the best managers in the world. Look at where we are, with 3 games to go, we depend on Man City to slip up in order to qualify for UCL playoff spot. His insistence on putting his philosophies upon the Man Utd style and squad have back fired so many times this season. IMO, 2 years are enough for LVG reign, hope to see another manager next season.

    Even if we win FA Cup and Man City slipped, we are fortunate to get into UCL playoff qualification spot next season, another year of his philosophies will IMO carry us nowhere.

    Cost of sacking (which i think is peanuts compare with the amount he spent)

    Louis van Gaal will bank a 1.1million bonus if he guides Manchester United into next year's Champions League.
    But it will cost the Red Devils a further 5million if they are to sack him this summer to make way for Jose Mourinho.
    Details of the Dutchman's bumper pay packet have been revealed by The Times - and claim he could pocket over 8million this season.
    Van Gaal earns a reported 3.3million as his basic annual salary, but then earns a series of bonuses to boost his hefty wage.

    There is a further 1.6million in image rights on top of a 2million loyalty payment - along with a million for a top four finish........

    .... The final bonus which Van Gaal can earn this season is a 400,000 reward if United defeat Crystal Palace and win the FA Cup later this month.

    ... in order to get rid of Van Gaal, United would have to pay 66 per cent of his existing salary as severance pay, meaning he would be due 5million.
