Louis van Gaal Talks About Team He Will Field At Hull

We don’t expect Louis van Gaal to be any different tomorrow at Hull than he is for any other game – he’s a professional and a top coach – and they always want to win every game, and he has already said he wants to field his strongest side tomorrow at the KC Stadium.

Louis van Gaal – a real professional

The Red Devils will finish 4th top of the Premier League whatever happens tomorrow, but the Dutch manager wants to maintain the integrity of the league, much like QPR manager Chris Ramsey wanted to do last week, after they knew they would be relegated.

And they certainly did that by beating a poor Newcastle side 2-1.

This is what Louis van Gaal has said about tomorrow’s game:

“Scoring goals and winning is always our aim, that’s no different,” “I have told my players that despite the fact that their manager is a United ‘child’ that we have to win.”

“Why? Because also for the Premier League and Newcastle United. We have won six points from Newcastle United and we have to win also from Hull City six points, if it’s possible.”

 “Our away record is not so good. It’s very difficult to win away, but we shall try to do our utmost.”  “I believe still that David de Gea will stay and I want to play him against Hull City because I have to put my strongest team,.

“David trained for the first time on Friday, but I cannot say if he is able to play. We will have to wait.”

The worry for Newcastle is that Manchester United away from home have not been the dominant force they have been at Old Trafford this season.

In their 18 road games this season they have won 6 drawn 7 and lost 5 – whereas in their homes games they have won 14 drawn two and lost three.

So we have to hope that they don’t suffer their sixth loss on the road tomorrow, because that will almost definitely mean Newcastle will be relegated.

If we can win we can save ourselves, but not many fans think that will happen, including us.

    This should be when all Toon supporters unite behind our team. Let’s roar the lads on and leave all the animosity for later. All I ask is the players work hard by pressing the ball and go for the win to avoid any question of relegation. Ha Way The Lads!

    I really hope Carver goes for it tomorrow because the position we’re in a draw or a defeat are just the same only a win can make us safe. So play Cisse, De Jong, Aarons from the beginning and see how long you can get from them. West Ham are on a poor run and wouldn’t have the fight to come back from, say, 2 – 0 down. There is no point putting them on the bench to come on and try and salvage the game – surely this is obvious even to Carver???

    If the Illustrious Owner couldn’t be bothered to provide the help – for HIS Football Club – what makes you think your God will do so instead??

    Toonbrother i agree with ya Colo should have been let go before he got the captaincy. Useless then and useless now.

    Martoon remember we have Carver as our manager. The only thing obvious to him is that he is the greatest man manager in the Prem better yet the world. Haha Dillusions of grandeur he has in spades

    Here’s hoping though we do get a win though

    Haway the lads

    John Carver in fact said “I have to believe I’m the best coach in the league.”

    Which is fair enough really, under the circumstances. Of course, the players obviously don’t, but then again, they couldn’t find the motivation from somewhere, their pride in the shirt, in themselves, their profession, to pick up the one win in the last ten games that would have secured our survival before now, either. So John, probably really needed to be.

    Strange atmosphere on here tonight bearing in mind it’s the last game of the season tomorrow!! Doesn’t feel too expectant.

    Agree we have to take the initiative. A 2-0 lead for us filtering through to Hull at half time would break them.
