Louis van Gaal continually talks of generating a philosophy at Manchester United. But that philosophy has not transpired on the pitch.

The Red Devils' performances have been a source of much frustration for supporters and many fans are beginning to get disillusioned with the Dutch manager. 

Following their elimination from the Champions League, the heat is turning up on the United manager and failure to win the Premier League could prove costly come the summer.

If the Old Trafford giants continue their current run of goalscoring, there is not much chance they will be top of the table come May.

“I want all of my teams to be remembered for many years. I want people to say many years later: ‘That was Van Gaal’s team and didn’t we enjoy watching his team.

The Red Devils have scored just five goals in their previous six league games and have managed just 20 strikes all season.

The style of play on display has been deemed so boring by sections of United's support that they have resorted to chanting "attack, attack, attack" at the Theatre of Dreams.

Prior to taking over at Manchester United, the former Holland boss released a book called My Vision, where he outlined his beliefs. But his ideas do not resonate with his current United side.

As per the Mirror, he wrote: “I love trophies. But I often realise that I love the way my team plays more than actually winning.

“I will put it even stronger: if my team is playing poorly, deep down I am not happy with a win. I just can’t be happy.

“I want all of my teams to be remembered for many years. I want people to say many years later: ‘That was Van Gaal’s team and didn’t we enjoy watching his team.

“I belong to a category of managers who want to create something. I want to bring great football to the people, I want things to happen in a stadium."

At this moment in time, the only thing Van Gaal will be remembered for is creating one of the most lacklustre Manchester United sides in history.

However, it is not all doom and gloom. If the Red Devils can find a way to bring more fluidity to their play and begin to create more chances, they are in a healthy position to mount a title challenge.

Although, their current injury problems have the potential to completely derail their season.
