These were the best Louis van Gaal “law of Murphy” jokes in response to the Man United manager’s latest excuse, mustered after the 2-1 Europa League defeat to FC Midtjylland.
It’s an excuse that rang hollow for the majority of United fans as their consistently misfiring side slumped to an embarrassing result in Denmark.
Murphy’s law is defined as:
“An adage or epigram that is typically stated as: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”
This explanation however is unlikely to pacify an increasingly restless Old Trafford faithful.
On the bright side, there was no shortage of LVG law of Murphy jokes:

Murphy's Law? Are the Mancs talking about the one where Danny Murphy scores the winner at Old Trafford every year? #Confused

Van Gaal blaming Murphy's law for the loss. What next? Pythagoras' Theorem? Or is it still Paul Scholes' fault?

Louis rambling about Murphy's law like a mad old man. It'll be Shrödinger's cat next, a United team that is both dead & alive.

When Louis Van Gaal said #MUFC are "making The Europa League a priority," I didn't realise he meant qualifying for it.
