Man United’s meagre points tally ‘not good enough’ for Van Gaal

first_img Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal 1 Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admits his side’s meagre Premier League points tally is “not good enough”, after the Red Devils were forced to fight back to rescue a draw at West Brom.The Dutchman is still without an away win as United boss, but was fortunate to come away from the Hawthorns with a share of the spoils as countryman Daley Blind’s 87th minute strike secured a 2-2 tie against the spirited Baggies.The result leave the Red Devils in sixth place with 12 points from their opening eight games, just one point more than axed boss David Moyes managed after the same period last season.Van Gaal claims his side haven’t had their rub of the green with their results so far this season, but admits their position in the table is disappointing.“It’s not too good I believe because I think when we see the games normally we are the better team,” he said.“When you have 12 points out of eight in my opinion it is eight points too few.”Van Gaal believes his team’s performance during the West Brom tie was their best of the season to date, and blamed a series of “individual errors” for the loss of points.“I’m very disappointed because we played our best match of the season and the result is not good enough,” the Red Devils boss said.“I think we could have won but that doesn’t count in our world so that’s why I’m disappointed, but I also have to be happy because we created a lot of chances and only two shots from West Bromwich Albion turned into goals.“We gave it away because of our individual errors and that’s a pity…“I’ve seen on the training ground now that we are better, the players understand the formation more and I’ve seen it today which is why it’s such a pity we didn’t get the result we deserved.”last_img read more
