The established wisdom: You cant win anything with kids. You cant attract top players if you are not in the Champions League. The class of 92 rewrote that first one. The power of being a RED is rewriting the other. Why?
MUST is the independent Manchester United supporters trust. We are dedicated to securing meaningful permanent ownership of MUFC for supporters.
Adnan Januzaj has featured as a youngster whose place at OT has seemed less than secure. He has said he's still trying to make an impression on Louis van Gaal. Well on Monday he took another big step forward and got noticed! He scored a hat-trick in the Under-21s' 4-0 win over Sunderland. And LvG was there watching at Old Trafford on Monday.. So we shall see if he has raised his game when he is finally unleashed on the PL from the kick off. And he will have to impress soon as LvG has shown that no one is safe if they do not deliver. He knows this and his effort and energy are focussed on this. Its his decision making that maturity will improve, its that end product, one that arguably Danny Welbeck is still struggling with, that will turn the boy to the man that he promises to be. Its the same change that Ronaldo delivered to SAF as he became the elite superstar we remember with awe.
This is a post I placed on Reds in Business in summer 2014. I feel its worth reposting as it sets out why we are where we are with LvG. Its a good place to be.
..... and she didn't disappoint.
Friends of terminally ill Manchester United fan James McCarthy have been raising funds to allow him to achieve some of his wishes on his "bucket list". They've raised an amazing £20,440
After completing his own ice bucket challenge for James on the Old Trafford forecourt, MUST CEO Duncan Drasdo, nominated Barney of Red News, MUST Vice Chair Ian Stirling, TV star and MUFC fan Rachel Riley and MUFC CEO Ed Woodward

Rachel Riley and Ian Stirling complete their challenge.
Just waiting for Ed Woodward to do it now - maybe LVG should deliver the ice bucket.
