Louis van Gaal: Man Utd manager's first game is at home to Swansea

Current Netherlands coach van Gaal has replaced David Moyes as United boss and has been handed the same opening fixture as his predecessor.

Moyes’ first league game in charge of United produced a 4-1 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on the opening day of last season and van Gaal will hope for a repeat on August 16.

United then face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light before meeting the three clubs promoted from the Championship – Burnley, Queens Park Rangers and Leicester City.

The first Manchester derby of the season comes at the Etihad Stadium on November 1, a week after United have hosted Chelsea, and there is also a trip to Arsenal in November.

Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford is scheduled for December 13, while United are at home to Newcastle on Boxing Day, travel to Tottenham Hotspur two days later before facing Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on New Year’s Day.

March and April are packed with big games for United, including trips to Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton, along with the return derby against Manchester City on April 11.

United’s final home game of the season is against Arsenal on May 16 before a trip to Hull City closes the term in a repeat of their final day encounter from the 2008/09 campaign.

Opening three games:

August 16 - Swansea (h)
August 23 - Sunderland (a)
August 30 - Burnley (a)

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.

d love to see a United v Liverpool FA cup final. It would certainly fit the narrative. Obv I'd want the ending to be one of an O.G. and tears as he collects his runner-up medal.

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
