The Louis Van Gaal era is up and running after United dismantled Los Angeles Galaxy 7-0 in their first pre-season friendly of the season earlier this morning to kick off their US tour in perfect fashion. Resounding though the result might be, United will have to face much sterner tests on this tour but Van Gaal's debut was as slick as he could have hoped for.

It's either complete rubbish to just sell copy or there is some substance in it. According to the Express, Chelsea have revived their interest in Wayne Rooney this summer and are preparing a £40m bid!!

Now it's an interesting one for many, many reasons. First the situation with Louis Van Gaal heading to Manchester after the World Cup and his apparent admiration for Robin Van Persie.

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Of all the attempts to knock the enthusiasm out of Louis van Gaal's arrival at Old Trafford, the least cutting jibe of them all has been the one about the Dutchman being some throwback who was only big in the 90s.

Besides being inaccurate—his post-2000 title-winning spells with AZ Alkmaar and Bayern Munich, and the Netherlands' success at the World Cup this summer are all achievements that would enhance the CV of any manager—it seems odd to try and use the decade that birthed the Premier League as the frame of reference through which to criticise the new manager at Old Trafford.

Louis Van Gaal could axe between six and 10 players in his first month at Manchester United, with the Dutchman determined to strip his squad ahead of the upcoming season by offloading players he deems to be surplus to requirements.

Van Gaal introduced himself to the squad yesterday, took charge of his first training session in the afternoon and will officially be unveiled as new Manchester United manager today but, even though he hasn't seen all of his players in action, the 62-year-old has already been active behind the scenes.

A year on from the abdication of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United remain in a limbo. The much planned succession led not to an expected summer of triumph but to a ten-month long winter of turgid football, impotent crosses and Marouane Fellaini. Less than a year aftera sacking at Old Trafford seemed unthinkable, the fans were as desperate for one as an addict seeking a hit.

After a successful World Cup, Van Gaal will officially be unveiled as Manchester United manager this week, before flying out to the US for United's summer tour unlike Robin Van Persie, who will miss the North American tour after having been given three weeks off when the job of rebuilding the squad that collapsed under David Moyes will begin in its earnest.

Manchester United have revealed the new kit for the upcoming 2014-15 season and, sadly, it looks as tacky as we all expected after watching the trailer United released just over a week ago.

An enormous golden "Chevrolet" logo has replaced the "AON" brand that had characterised United's shirts over the last three seasons, while the white collar returns after a two-season long absence and a label inside the collar carries the words "Youth, Courage, Greatness" which isn't every United missed under David Moyes but, according to United's official website, the pillars upon which the club is built.
