Louis van Gaal's speech at the Manchester United end-of-season event has sparked plenty of conversation and reaction.

The United boss took the stage and delivered a passionate, rambling address to his audience.

Bleacher Report Manchester United correspondent Paul Ansorge has analysed it, but here, meanwhile, is a flavour of the reaction to his words from social media as well as a few memes that have surfaced.

We begin with Countdown presenter and Manchester United fan Rachel Riley:

What an incredible character Louis van Gaal is! Certainly made an impression with his speech tonight & made time for all the fans. Top guy

It wasn't just United fans who were drinking up the speech, though. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher had this to say:

I can't sleep thinking about this LVG speech if anyone has the full speech send me it! I love that man!!

— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) May 19, 2015

And Gary Neville was just as amused:

I don't know if anyone is still up. But LVG is cracking me up here. Great entertainment!

— Gary Neville (@GNev2) May 19, 2015

As silly as the speech was at moments, BBC commentator Guy Mowbray dubbed it inspiring:

Re LVG's speech - it's been billed as entertaining and funny, but I'd put it in the 'inspiring' bracket. Rousing stuff.

— Guy Mowbray (@Guymowbray) May 20, 2015

Some said they'd seen it all before when Van Gaal was at Bayern Munich:

Why the surprise at LvG's end of season speech?!? Had no one seen this before? #homework http://t.co/Oz9kv5r4fO

Still, it left us wondering how the rest of Van Gaal's evening played out:
