Maverick Van Gaal chooses odd time to stick

LONDON (Reuters) – Louis van Gaal is a fierce critic of English football’s congested holiday fixture schedule so it came as a big surprise when he named an unchanged Manchester United team to play Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

Less than 48 hours after beating Newcastle United 3-1, Van Gaal sent out the same 11 players at Spurs, the first time the Old Trafford team have been unchanged in 85 league matches going back to November, 2012.

Van Gaal rekindles spirit as United dare to dream again

LONDON (Reuters) – Four wins a row have lifted Manchester United into the Premier League’s top four and Louis van Gaal’s managerial reign is beginning to bear fruit after a difficult start.

Although home victories over Crystal Palace, Hull City and Stoke City would not normally set pulses racing at Old Trafford, the gutsy win at Arsenal showed signs of the fierce team spirit that underpinned Alex Ferguson’s glittering reign at the club.
