They say a week is a long time in football. It is when it comes to Louis van Gaal’s unique brand of football. One step forward, how many back?

Miserable and predictable, Manchester United’s away form meant it was little surprise that a jammy win over Watford was followed by a disheartening defeat at the Hawthorns. Ed & Paul discuss both games, though they failed to mention that the Hawthorns is the stadium highest above sea level in the country.
