Manchester United’s players and manager Louis van Gaal “look bored” and are “going through the motions”, says the club’s former midfielder Paul Scholes.

Van Gaal’s side laboured to a
1-0 FA Cup third-round win over Sheffield United – failing to score a first-half goal for the 10th home match in a row.

“There just seems to be an acceptance of bad performances,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“Every time you come to Old Trafford you see negative football.”

Manchester United are fifth in the Premier League but have managed just 12 goals in 10 home matches.

By the time Wayne Rooney scored an injury-time winner from the penalty spot against the Blades, thousands of fans had already left the stadium in what appeared to be a show of disapproval. Their team did not register a shot on target until the 69th minute, and even that was greeted with ironic applause.

“The players looked bored themselves,” Scholes said. “There’s no spirit, there’s nobody having a go at each other, there’s no smiling, there’s no entertainment.

“I think even Van Gaal on the bench looks bored, but he’ll come out and say he’s happy.

“People need digging out sometimes. You need to make something happen.”

While Van Gaal’s side avoided a replay thanks to Rooney’s late penalty, Scholes said the performance was unacceptable.

“They didn’t create a chance and had to win a game against a League One side with a penalty in the 94th minute,” he added.

“In my eyes it’s not good enough.”

Van Gaal defended United’s performance. “It’s always difficult to play against such an opponent with 10 or 11 players behind the ball,” he said.

“It’s more easy to defend than attack and at the end we got the penalty but it was a deserved penalty.

“We won this match and that’s the most important thing. I said in advance to the boys, ‘the only thing that counts is we are in the second [fourth] round’, and we did it.”

Manchester United 1-0 Sheffield United

Wayne Rooney scored a last-minute penalty as a poor Manchester United edged League One Sheffield United to reach the FA Cup fourth round.

The hosts, 47 places above their opponents in the football pyramid, had only two shots on target throughout.

Substitute Memphis Depay curled just wide in the second half, but it looked like the visitors would earn a replay.

However, after Memphis was fouled inside the area, Rooney stepped up to score and send the hosts through.

Reaction to Saturday’s FA Cup third-round games


Van Gaal’s ‘Mark Robins moment’?

Just two weeks ago Louis van Gaal’s future as Manchester United manager appeared to be in huge doubt.

The Red Devils had failed to win in seven games but, after surviving a 2-0 defeat at Stoke on Boxing Day, Van Gaal has overseen an improvement in both results and, in patches, performances.

Manchester United

Manchester United managed just two shots in the first half, both off target. Their last 10 home games have been goalless at half-time

After a combined 31 shots on goal in their last two games against Chelsea and Swansea, Manchester United seemed a livelier prospect, despite their plentiful possession still having no end product.

And, at Old Trafford on Saturday, Memphis fizzed an effort just wide in the second half, only for the home fans to burst into ironic cheers, rather than roar encouragement.

A drab draw against a League One side would likely have seen Van Gaal come under criticism once again, but Rooney’s strike could give him some breathing space.

Back in 1990, Mark Robins scored a goal in the FA Cup for Manchester United that is said to have saved Sir Alex Ferguson from the sack.

Van Gaal may have just had his ‘Robins moment’.


‘I’d get rid of Van Gaal’


FA Cup: Man Utd’s Wayne Rooney scores injury-time penalty

Sheffield United looked to have secured a lucrative replay at Bramall Lane but, as the game entered the 90th minute, Memphis broke into the area and fell as he was challenged by midfielder Dean Hammond.

His acrobatic reaction suggested the hosts may have got lucky when referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot, but replays showed there was limited contact.

“I thought it was a penalty but it was an absolute shocking performance from Manchester United,” BBC Radio 5 live pundit Robbie Savage said.

“For me, Van Gaal, I’d get rid of him.”


Blades caution proves costly

Two years ago Sheffield United reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and had forged a reputation as seasoned giant killers.

In recent years, they have beaten Aston Villa, West Ham and Southampton in cup competitions and, given the sense of unrest at Old Trafford, they will have fancied their chances of claiming a higher division scalp.

They had the game’s first shot on target, which came in the 67th minute after Chris Basham fired straight at David De Gea, but retreated into their own half as they looked to keep Manchester United out and take the tie back to South Yorkshire.

That perhaps proved their undoing as the hosts pressed in the closing stages, leading to the moment when Memphis was brought down inside the box.

A little more conviction, and the result could have been different.

What they said

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal:
“You have to see also how the opponent is playing. Everybody shall give applause to Sheffield United. They were very organised but it is much more difficult to attack than to defend.

“Again a clean sheet is also the benefit of our organisation. I’m very disappointed that we are not creating too many chances, that we have to improve.”

Sheffield United boss Nigel Adkins on BT Sport: “The players have worked extremely hard against superior opposition.

“The grit, desire and character gave the supporters something to cheer about. The supporters have got right behind the players and there is a togetherness at the football club.”


The stats you need to know

  • Wayne Rooney has scored nine goals in his last 10 FA Cup games for Manchester United.
  • Manchester United have lost once in 37 FA Cup ties against lower-ranked sides – v Leeds United in 2010.
  • Manchester United have progressed from 29 of their last 31 third round ties in the FA Cup.

Villa deserve fans' anger - Garde

Aston Villa manager Remi Garde admits he and his players deserved to feel the fury of travelling fans after they failed to beat League Two Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup third round.

The Premier League’s bottom club were
held 1-1 by the side 54 places below them on the league ladder.

It was a result that provoked anger and frustration among the travelling fans.

“I can understand the fans. They travel a long way and we have to accept this criticism,” said Garde.

“We are not winning this kind of game and this is what we deserve.”

Villa fans turned on Garde when he replaced Carles Gil with Jordan Veretout after 71 minutes, with supporters chanting: “You don’t know what you’re doing.”

Goalscorer Micah Richards was even involved in heated exchanges with fans during the game and at the final whistle.

Frenchman Garde took over at the Birmingham club in November after the sacking of Tim Sherwood, but is without a win in 10 games since taking charge.

Micah Richards

Micah Richards gave Villa the lead at Adams Park in the 22nd minute

He said: “When you are not winning the manager is always making bad decisions. You can always say it is a good or bad decision. I know what I’m doing but sometimes it isn’t working.”

Garde insisted he does not feel under huge pressure and still believes he can turn around a season which sees Villa stranded at the bottom of the Premier League with only eight points from 20 games.

He says he will not walk away, adding: “I’m not especially under pressure, but I’m not winning games. The day I feel that I am not able to do something positive for this huge football club, you will know it.”

Garde also backed Richards for getting involved in exchanges with Villa fans at the end, saying: “As professionals we have to face responsibility, not only Micah and me but all the players. It was brave of him, doing that.

“Aston Villa is in a difficult situation and I think everybody has to keep calm, face responsibility and look in the mirror to see if we can do more to get out of this difficult situation.”

Garde revealed that Jack Grealish did not come into consideration for selection because he has been suffering from tonsilitis.







The Villa fans were more generous to the Wanderers players, who they applauded from the field.

“It’s great and just fantastic for the Villa fans to clap us off, because they are in a bit of disarray at the moment,” said Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth.

“So for them to have the respect to do that for my boys, I’d just say thank you.

“We’ll see what happens up at Villa Park, we’ll be giving our all again.

“I know the finances to the penny, so I know what this means for us and how much this will go to paying our debt off.

“But I know what it’s going to mean to some of my players too, boys who weren’t told they were good enough at times, free transfers and this group of never-say-die Wycombe Wanderers players.”
