Manchester United's season won't be a successful one

Published 9 Comments

With Manchester United fans raring to go as the new Premier League season is just around the corner, I will explain why the Red Devils are being too optimistic.

There's no doubt that Louis van Gaal is a brilliant manager, but the challenge that he faces may be much greater than he first thought.

Manchester United's poor season was largely blamed on the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes. But was it really his fault?

Moyes inherited a squad that has mediocrity running through it, the achievement in winning the League in 2013 is mainly down to Sir Alex's mind games.

However, Van Gaal is still stuck with this squad that can only be deemed as very average with the exception of: Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata, Robin van Persie and the rise of Adnan Januzaj.

More signings needed

Before the new season begins the new No.1 at Manchester United must locate the three positions he has to spend big so that he can restore the club's dominance in England.

Firstly in defence they have a major problem, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling are the main centre-backs at the club and when the opposition faces them they will see two positions that are weak and take advantage of that.

Midfield is another position that the Red Devils have to strengthen in, there is no real players that take control of the middle of the park there as Michael Carrick will miss the opening of the season with an injury.

Attack is the only real area that they look threatening in, but Rooney and Van Persie will have to be firing on all cylinders to drag Manchester United back to the top.
