The most significant aspect of Manchester United's 3-0 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur Monday was just how routine and ordinary it all felt.In the five years since Alex Ferguson retired, United have gradually become, on the field at least, what many thought they would never be – just another club.The word legacy is over-used and sometimes misused in sport, but it is quite literally what was left by Ferguson when he stood down after 27 years, 13 league titles and two Champions League triumphs.So out went first-team coach and assistant manager Mike Phelan and his 14 years experience working alongside Ferguson, respected goalkeeping coach Eric Steele and Rene Meulensteen, the Dutch coach who Ferguson first brought to Manchester in 2001 .Former academy director and coach of United's Under-18 team Paul McGuinness also left the club in 2015 .During his time working with McClair, United saw 86 academy players go on to make a first-team debut and 23 become full internationals. Van Gaal's staff have come and gone and Mourinho has brought in more new faces while the only nod towards the club's past was the appointment of Michael Carrick as part of the first-team coaching staff.
