First published in Sport

New Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal admitted that he merely approved the deal to bring Luke Shaw to Old Trafford.

The Dutchman has held his first press conference as Old Trafford boss and revealed things were already in the pipeline for Shaw and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.

"My method is always the same," he said.

"I will look at the players present now, I know how they play but I want to see in the first three or four weeks what they can do, then maybe buy other players.

"Shaw and Herrera were already on the (club's) list, I gave my approval because I like them."

And I wish that you'd just keep your gob shut. We, they have attracted a major personalityIin Ronald and through this have made two potentially fantadic signings with more on the way hopefefully. They have stood firm against offers for Lovren and Fonte, so in my eyes they have only done whats best for the club.

All, don't bother responding to this. Montecristo is a habitual neggie and probably a Poopey fan to boot.

If you hate how the club is being run, feel free to go support another club. I'm sure your charming optimism will be warmly welcomed elsewhere.
