Great job, Van Gaal!

The Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United was supposed to start at 4:00 p.m. London time (11:00 a.m. ET). But it won't, because apparently the Manchester United bus was stuck in traffic, and the match has been delayed until 4:30 p.m./11:30 a.m.

According to reports on NBC Sports Network, Manchester United stayed at a hotel in Trafalgar Square in the center of London, the same hotel that they've stayed in the last five times they've traveled to London to face Tottenham. It's a good drive up the A10 to get to White Hart Lane, and apparently United lost the traffic lottery and were delayed big time heading north.

The bus has apparently now arrived at White Hart Lane and Tottenham fans are super unimpressed.

Will this have an impact on United's chances in the match if they're rushed to get on the field and can't complete their normal pre-match routine? Who knows! If you're a Spurs fan, you can certainly hope so.
