Capital One Cup: MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd – Red Devils Battered By League One Dons

Louis Van Gaal may have fielded an inexperienced Manchester United side at Stadium:MK on Tuesday night, however few would have expected the Premier League champions of 12/13 to receive a right battering from the League One hosts.

United’s backline, with Jonny Evans the only experienced player in there, were shambolic throughout, with Will Grigg netting a brace before sub Benik Afobe, on loan from Arsenal, banged in two more.

While the Dons were vibrant and sharp, the young United side looked at sea throughout and while a cup defeat isn’t the end of the world for the Red Devils, the manner of the defeat will worry both Van Gaal and the United board.

One wonders what David Moyes is thinking right now. And Angel Di Maria for that matter!

How much time will they give LVG? If they are not top four by the first half of the season I think he'll be on his way out...

I think United is planninh a huge trolling attempt at everybody. They purposely lost big to MK Dons and after this they are gonna rock the league like never before.

Everytime they beat a team, the fans will say, "you guys lost to the team that was humiliated by MK Dons. So you guys are worst than the Dons LOL!"

That would be funny but kinda like a desperate grasping of straws too at this point.

But it was indeed true that 9 out 11 players here were those lacking 1st team actions in EPL so there's THAT and all the big signings are yet to play together too and that means there's still something left to be seen from this year's United. If those aren't working too, LVG might have to pack his bag early too like Moyes. As a fan of both United and LVG, I sincerely hope THAT will never happen.

I hope Di Maria can play centre half.

Despite the circlejerk, you and half of reddit with the same comment makes no sense. I get it's 'funny' but I'm pretty sure keane, vermijl, janko, James, young and valencia aren't going to replace Shaw, rojo, Jones and Rafael anytime soon, and we've not even seen them play together.

"Despite the circlejerk, you and half of reddit with the same comment makes no sense." - yes it does.

listenkids3079d ago

It makes sense because you've seen a full strength back 5? Oh thats right, you haven't. So it makes no sense. Think.
