If there has been one thing clear about Louis Van Gaal fledging career at Manchester United, it is the no messing nature of his regime. Compromise? That is not a philosophy or word that the Dutchman even knows the meaning of. Luke Shaw is considered too fat, the training ground to windy, 4-3-3 o...
