According to Louis Van Gaal, yesterday’s match against Queen’s Park Ranger’s was the beginning of a new era for Manchester United. It can certainly be said that the 4-0 win saw a return to form that even the most optimistic of United fans could not have dreamt of after such a sorry start to the season. The new signings most definitely hit the ground running with Di Maria and Herrera each scoring goals along with Rooney and Mata. Blind and Rojo also had starts and Falcao made his debut in the 67th minute. Suddenly all the media speculation has shifted from whether Van Gaal can muster a Champions League place for United to whether he can mastermind a win. That might be asking for nothing short of a miracle, but based on last night’s performance, the Red Devils are not out of the running just yet.
