The table suggests Louis van Gaal is making progress at Manchester United but winning matches has never been good enough on its own at the Theater of Dreams.Experienced Dutchman Van Gaal has been reduced to waving around pieces of paper at news conferences to explain his team's style of play after West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce said United were playing long-ball tactics against his side.After the fortunate 1-1 draw against West Ham which provoked the "long-ball" accusations, United beat struggling Burnley 3-1 Wednesday but for large parts of the match were outplayed.With arguably none of the current team, Rooney aside, likely to appear in many fans' best elevens from the last 30 years, Van Gaal will need a huge transfer kitty to restore United's reputation as English football's great entertainers.
