The morden game doesnt need 5 years to "build a team" anymore. Ancelloti at Real, Guardiola at Bayern, Mourinho back at Chelsea, Diego Simeone with Athletico, Southampton under Koeman, Everton under Martinez etc etc etc
It seems that one season is all the bedding in time that you need and since Van Gaal has got 1) no pressure coz of Moyes failure, 2) Lots of time coz of no Champions League 3) alot of backing in terms of signings and 4) a pretty great set of players who know each other already. Rafael, Rooney, Carrick, and (surprisingly) Valencia, Young and Fellaini have already settled in.
Definitely top 4 this season but i see no limit to what we can do next
Glad to be back too buddy
They are heading in the right direction but they're definitely too far from Europe's elite. I'm optimistic too, but Van Gaal's totally new philosophy is gonna need a bit more time.
Definitely Top 4 in Premiership this season indeed though.
Keep it up my friend!
