There is no right or wrong way to support your football club. It's a deeply personal journey for us all. Yet every club has certain characteristics to which those that love them can all relate. Manchester United is no different.

If every United fan was asked to pick a defining image, a single moment in time, one that summed up what the club meant to them, the images would fill volumes.

Louis van Gaal converted Valencia's position to right-back and it wasn't a totally smooth process, with his concentration and positioning letting him down at times.
