The Van Gaal photo that sums Manchester United's season up

Angry Louis van Gaal

United lost 2-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday evening, making it just three wins for the Old Trafford outfit from 12 games in all competitions.

If you want an image that sums Manchester United's season up, look no further than the above.

Indeed, a common theme in all of United's games so far this term has been the likes of Ryan Giggs and his fellow coaches shouting orders to his players... but manager Louis van Gaal sitting calmly on the touchline.

That's not to say there's anything wrong with being particularly inactive in the dugout. But it summarises the Dutchman's approach: he'll do things his way whether people like it or not. And, seemingly, he'll do it whether it works or not...

The pressure is on Van Gaal right now following Manchester United's elimination from the Champions League. The Old Trafford outfit's response - losing 2-1 at Bournemouth - was not exactly what their fans would have had in mind.

United do possess a lengthy injury list right now, while the Cherries won every 50-50 and simply didn't let Van Gaal's side breathe.

But will the supporters of past Premier League and Champions League winners accept those as valid reasons for what is turning out to be a miserable season so far for Manchester United - even though the team sit just three points off the top of the table?
