With plans possibly afoot to kill off FA Cup replays and play games midweek in order to increase English chances in Europe and in international tournaments, we should enjoy the cup in its current form. Although looking ahead, I'm not seeing too many possible shocks.
From the outside looking in, the next 12 months are going to be a fascinating, revealing insight into the mindsets of the decision-makers at Old Trafford. But short of building a time machine in order to go back and nudge Pep Guardiola to the other side of Manchester, there's no solution that'll keep everyone happy.
Sometimes players who spent their careers at the top aren't necessarily cut out for a life at the top in management. At present Giggs' future foray into management could easily go either way - we just don't know. But what is certain is that it's a mistake to automatically assume that he'll be a success.
United are the best story in the country for people who like their stories to come with a side order of not having a clue whether what they're reading is actually true. It's football news on the edge. Well, on the edge of losing all credibility, at least.
No Champions League football equals a disastrous hit on revenue, which means less money to spend on players, which means increasing likelihood of another dull season to follow, and the decline picks up momentum. It's a cycle that needs breaking and pronto. Just ask Leeds or Nottingham Forrest. No club is immune from tumbling down the ladder.
Louis van Gaal has endured more than his fair share of criticism since taking over at Manchester United in the summer of 2014. He's been accused of all sorts of things and oversaw a terrible run of results at the end of 2014. But above all else, what he's achieved is steady progress. It may not seem obvious, but it is there.
Jose Mourinho is the name on everyone's lips at this moment in time after his recent sacking at Chelsea. After United were beaten by Norwich, a few excitable individuals managed to convince themselves that Mourinho would be in charge at Old Trafford by the time Chelsea visit on 28 December.
Further back, you'd find the symbol of Louis van Gaal's passive approach to games: Daley Blind. I really like his intelligence and passing range, and he really has adapted to his weaknesses and made the most of his potential. However, he lacks energy, intensity and pace to his game, being as slow and ponderous as anyone. Have you even ever seen him have a go at anybody?
Just in case you've missed the fall out that's come alongside Manchester United's gradual, slow, boring grind to mediocrity, it's worth a reminder that former striker Javier Hernandez is scoring for fun in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen.

The campaign against my club, Manchester United has shown that football clubs don't like bad press, and I hope this series of blogs will help make the clubs take note and make changes to support all their fans. If you have an experience to share, get in touch, and let's help make change together.
Manchester United are lacking a goalscoring hero at the moment, and while it was hoped back in September that Anthony Martial could have been that man, it's wrong to expect it to happen so quickly. Perhaps United should delve back into the transfer market in January after all. Romelu Lukaku, anyone?

For years, United fans had been used to their team performing remarkable acts of escapology and asserting their authority once they assumed a commanding position. However, against Nigel Pearson's Leicester City, the tables had been turned...

United face a hectic schedule in the lead-up to Christmas, playing seven games in the next four weeks and there's no better place for Memphis to recapture the hearts of United's supporters than under the floodlights next Wednesday night against his old team in the Champions League. He could be the hero that night, but it's up to him to ensure that happens.
