The secret behind Louis van Gaal’s football ‘philosophy’ was finally unmasked after 10 months in charge of Manchester United and it’s apparently centered on wine, as revealed in his side’s 2-1 win against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Many have wondered throughout the campaign as to what exactly is in the folder that the Dutchman carries around from game-to-game and thankfully thanks to the power of social media we all got to see that it was a wine brochure from merchants Farr Vintners:

It should be pointed out that the sheet of paper was indeed just the usual team-sheet that is given out at Selhurst Park but given just how important the victory against the Eagles was in their bid to finish in the top-four, it would be no surprise if van Gaal celebrated with a glass of wine after the game.
A penalty from Juan Mata and a late second half header from Marouane Fellaini means United are one win away from sealing a return to the Champions League.
