After a first season in charge, whereby the best (or should that be minimum) we can hope for is a Champions League place, Ed Woodward left Louis van Gaal under no illusions as to what`s expected next season.

Issuing a statement that referred to the release of United`s third quarter results to 31 March 2015, indicating he expects the club to be chasing honours on all fronts next season.

But, with regard to this season Woodward remarked,

‘We are pleased with the team’s performance in Louis van Gaal’s first season as manager and are well positioned to achieve a top four finish in the Premier League and to return to European football next year.’

As for things of a revenue nature, it transpires that commercial revenues were up 11.7% for the quarter at £47.8 million whilst overall revenue, courtesy of not being in the Champions League, was down 17.7%.

Money, money and more money, surely if we do well on the pitch money matters take care of themselves.
