Van Gaal admits he's struggling to cope with Man United's boring tag

Van Gaal admits he's struggling to cope with Man United's boring tag The Dutchman watched his side throw away three points at Newcastle before revealing the accusation that is side is dull is beginning to take a strain on him and his players

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admits he and his players are struggling to cope with constantly being accused of being boring.

United were anything but dull on Tuesday night as they contrived to throw away a two-goal lead at Newcastle, before conceding a last minute equaliser in a pulsating 3-3 draw.

It was, however, a result out of keeping with United's recent goalscoring form. Van Gaal's side has failed to score in the first half of a game at Old Trafford since September 30 and a section of home supporters resorted to ironic cheering when their team finally managed to register a shot on target against League One Sheffield United in the FA Cup last Saturday.

And the Dutchman admitted the negativity surrounding his side is difficult to live with and again refuted the suggestion that his team are negative and overly defensive.

He said: "I don't agree with the analysis of many people. We are always attacking. We are always attacking also away. But I have to live with it.

"I have to cope with it. My players have to cope with it. That's very difficult. But now we've given two points away."
