STATS: Man United Boss Shockingly Biased with Falcao

Louis Van GaalRadamel Falcao is arguably one of the best strikers in the world but finds himself in a complex situation at Old Trafford.
Louis van Gaal did lure him from Monaco in summer but has not preferred him over his compatriot van Persie and captain Wayne Rooney.
To make matters worst, even Wilson had started games ahead of the Colombian international.
In the last league game against Southampton, Radamel Falcao was not even included in the squad. United lost the game and when asked whether Van Gaal regretted his decision to not have Falcao, the Dutch manager simply said NO.
As far as stats are concerned, it will be fair to say that Falcao has not been given a fair chance and in the limited chances he has had, he did impress enough to keep his place.
Leaving his injury concerns aside, when fit, Falcao has only started 7 league games and has only competed 90 minutes in two of them. Other than that, the lack of time mostly in his total 12 league appearances.

  • 23 minutes against QPR
  • 12 minutes against Stoke and Liverpool
  • 18 minutes against Baggies
  • 20 minutes versus Hull

Who is to blame if Falcao does not click. Still, in the limited time that he has got, Falcao has netted 3 goals and also provided 3 assists as well.
The Colombian was the one to score their last league goal and level it up against Stoke and was lively. However, Van Gaal took him off in the second half and then excluded him from Southampton game.
As per the provided BBC link explaining his exclusion van Gaal claimed that you have to look at the needs of selection at the time. Surely in Falcao’s case, Van gaal is not making much sense and is shockingly biased.

    Even before when Falcao had been training for nearly three weeks the manager said he is not up to his rythm and
    refused to play him but he played Jones with two days training for 88 minutes after being out for two months
    Same on Sunday, he took DiMaria and Shaw off because they were just coming back to full fitness yet he plays
    Blind the full match on his long term injury.
    This manager keeps contradicting himself in every turn. Can you believe him.
    I find the system United play is keep ball it does not matter about scoring as long as you pass the ball back to the centre halves.
    United have no sense of adventure and players are frightened to take anyone on for fear of losing the ball.
    It is about time the players showed some balls.

    the formation van gaal prefers is not working for united and it will cost the team dispite having quality players. Falcao has served man u in almost every games he played.
