Following defeat against Stoke, Manchester United slipped to a fourth defeat in a row for the first time since 1961, thereby increasing the pressure on Louis Van Gaal..
That event now looks probable following yet another insipid performance, and Van Gaal was disappointed by United's failure to perform in the first half at the Britannia Stadium.
Van Gaal: "My thoughts are we don't dare to play football in the first half."

The Dutchman seemed oddly resigned throughout the interview, and was somewhat sanguine when Sky's Patrick Davidson was brave enough to question his future at the club, saying that "We have lost the fourth game, so we have to wait and see".
Van Gaal's downfall may be caused by his team's passivity and lack of agression, but he gave a masterclass in passive agression by end of the interview, by staring deep into the soul of the Sky interviewer, affronted by the reporter's cheek to question his future:

Days after asking the media for an apology for questioning his future, Van Gaal's contempt for the British media grows.
