MANCHESTER, England -- Reeling from arguably the most humiliating loss in the clubs illustrious history, the prospect of Manchester United being European champions by 2017 seems far-fetched. Anders Lee Jersey . Yet that is the target new manager Louis van Gaal has set the team as part of an ambitious three-year plan. "I hope we are in the top four this season -- it suits a club like Man United," Van Gaal said Friday, "and then maybe the next step is to be (English) champions and then the next step is to be the winners of the Champions League." Those comments could invite ridicule considering how United performed last season under David Moyes and started this season under Van Gaal. After earning just one point from Premier League matches against Swansea and Sunderland, United lost 4-0 to third-tier MK Dons in the second round of the League Cup on Tuesday. Suddenly, the World Cup in Brazil -- where Van Gaal led the Netherlands to the semifinals last month -- seems a dim and distant memory. But Van Gaal is used to making bad starts at club level. Van Gaals Barcelona was 10th after 14 games of the 1998-99 season but still won the league. In 2009, Bayern Munich was seventh after 13 matches under the Dutchman but ended the season as champions. "When I started with the Dutch national team (in 2012), no one believed we could qualify (for the World Cup)," Van Gaal added. "After that, they said we wouldnt have any chance to get through the group stage, and after that (they said) well lose against every opponent." Given Uniteds start to the season and the squad depth of Premier League rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, finishing in the top four would be some achievement. A first win of the campaign would do wonders for confidence and United is hoping that comes Saturday at Burnley, where Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria is in contention to make his debut after sealing his move from Real Madrid for 59.7 million pounds ($99 million). "I think he is ready to play," said Van Gaal, who is without 10 players because of injury. It wont be Van Gaals first trip to Turf Moor. In 1992, he was there as coach of Ajax for a friendly that the Dutch club -- then UEFA Cup champion -- won 1-0 in front of a crowd of 10,746. "Yes, I was there!" Van Gaal said after a moments pause. "We won. I took over there in 1991, we won the UEFA Cup in the first season, in the second year we won the (Dutch) cup, and after the league. "It was a step in the process." Jordan Eberle Jersey .Corey Brewer had 19 points eight rebounds, five assists and five steals for the Timberwolves, who snapped a six-game losing streak and won for just the third time since Ricky Rubio went out with an injured ankle on Nov. Denis Potvin Jersey ... as usual. Even with the salary cap being set lower than many general managers expected and hoped for at $69 million and whats considered a shallow pool of top-end players available, this unrestricted-free-agent period figures to follow the familiar script of teams bidding up prices to keep up with each other. http://www.authenticnyislanderspro.com/Bryan-trottier-islanders-jersey/ . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell.The St. Louis Blues return to top spot in the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and, last weeks No. 1, Anaheim Ducks. Part of the reason for the Blues consistently strong play this season has been the emergence of second-year offensive performers Vladimir Tarasenko, who has 17 points in the past 17 games, and Jaden Schwartz, who is fifth on the team with 37 points. The Montreal Canadiens are among the teams moving up through a crowded middle portion of the rankings, going 2-1-1 last week and moving from 17 to 13. One regulation loss in the past six games helps the Dallas Stars go from 19 to 15 and the Philadelphia Flyers are up from 24 to 20. A 9-1-1 record over the past 11 games has brought the Toronto Maple Leafs to their second-highest ranking since mid-November, going from 22 to 17. Getting goaltender Cam Warrd back from injury doesnt immediately help the Carolina Hurricanes, who drop from 11 to 16, and the slumping Vancouver Canucks slide from 14 to 19. Nick Leddy Jersey. Injuries are keeping the Detroit Red Wings down. WIth one regulation win in the past 10, the Wings have sunk from 18 to 25. As I noted last week, there is a relatively tight squeeze in the 18-25 range. Among the rest of the Canadian clubs, the surging Winnipeg Jets are up from 15 to 12, despite losing Evander Kane to injury, while the Ottawa Senators are down two spots to 22. Winners of five straight, the Calgary Flames gained a couple of spot, to 27, overtaking the Edmonton Oilers, who had won three of four.
