Ashley Young is the latest player to be left bemused by Louis van Gaal's decisions, and understandably so. It's not that Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Guillermo Varela haven't done well enough in their games for United, just that you would expect experience to be given a chance at important times, such as the match against Wolfsburg. You can read about his confusion in the Guardian.
Manchester City's academy system is said to be extensive, excellent and well funded, and several United players send their kids there, showing just how highly it is thought of. United's, on the other hand, has suffered and fallen behind the highest standards. You can read in the Daily Mail how United are planning to change that.
Manchester Evening News has another transfer story with a familiar feel. Robert Lewandowski is the latest extremely expensive target that they are chasing. Bayern Munich aren't fools, so enough money would do the job eventually, but it's galling to think United simply won't pay for younger talent who could become great, would be ultimately cheaper, and more enjoyable to watch develop.
And on ESPNFC, there are rumours that the United board has started to note the unrest with Van Gaal. United fans should hope that they also take note of Edward Woodward's continued failure when it comes to actual football.
