Hi ed002- I was wondering if you could look into your crystal ball on my behalf - I'm curious about how the higher ups at the club are feeling about the mourinho era so far - personally I wouldn't imagine them thrilled with the football we have seen this season and I'd rather he shut up and stopped complaining every day- it's so negative it's got to affect the players surely?

{Ed002's Note - Beyond what I previously explained about two people being concerned about a blue tinge I would think they would be relieved at being back in the champions league and still be miffed about the fans that disrupted the very good plans that were in place.}

Agree0 Disagree0

ED, sorry if it is a daft question, but why did the club change their plans. There was no drop in attendances or formal protests.

Surely if it was in the best interest of the club, the board should have progressed with plan A.

I am sure as with most things in life there is more to it/ things are not that simple. Any insight would be appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Because of the toxic fans.}

It wasn’t the fans fault lvg spent 250mn to achieve 4th and 5th spot. It wasn’t fans fault that hererra kept getting benched while the fat captain continued to show how far he had declined with backing of my kaptain schall alwaysh play. It wasn’t fans fault that the football was so mind numbing most people fell asleep to it or was it fans fault that most players the dutch moron bought are on their way out because most turned out to be failures.

{Ed002's Note - The fans were and remain rubbish.}

If a company has a bad product then customers are going to complain - especially if the plan isn't articulated to them.

If their plan was that good they will have 'planned' for the fans becoming toxic with the service being provided and not had to react to it. Clearly they hadn't planned for it being that bad, which obviously means their plan wasn't good enough to begin with - it showed incompetence right from the start so they have no credibility. The toxic fans were speaking the truth and the club realised they needed to act.

It's all well and good saying you want to arrive at X destination in X amount of days. But if you start off going backwards then it's hard to feel confidence in achieving those objectives. They hardly have a great track record either, hiring Moyes to begin with and showing themselves being inadequate multiple times with poor signings and other poor decisions (with hindsight of course) .

Maybe had they enacted their master plan straight after SAF left it would have meant the toxics had a bit more patience, but they don't deserve the benefit of the doubt after the debacle of recent years and the wastage of money, time and talent. It's all well and good having plans, but executing them is a whole other kettle of fish. It's a bad plan if it can't be amended - even the best planners get it wrong, the head honchos at Utd have been found wanting for a few years now in certain key areas!

{Ed002's Note - They don't care about the white trash. And quite rightly so.}

It's was a long term plan. After the Moyes fiasco the bird wanted LVG to complete a 3 year plan with a 4 year as a possibility.
If memory serves me right, Woodward who wanted Falcao and ADM. LVG didn't really have a choice there.
That aside LVG disastrous 352/ 532 formation hindered the team. When he went 433 we played some very good football.
His 2nd season was ok. We win the FA cup. As ED002 said the club decided against buying in the January transfer window, the portuguese players at Barcelona now.

Im not sure you can honestly say our board is incompetent. Sure with hindsight there's been decisions they wouldn't make now but that's true of every board that's ever been. Moyes not a good appointment but if saf recommmended him what board would ignore him? Lvg was the best manager that was available and no matter what people say he did at least steady thd ship.

Allegri would've been a sound long term manager.

06 Jun 2017 09:30:06
True wallace. Could of been a shrewd move. Could replace jose in a couple of years as he is only 50ish i think.

06 Jun 2017 12:20:00
Allegri would be our manager coming into this season, but for the toxics as stated by Ed002.

06 Jun 2017 14:53:31
Thanks for the reply Ed. Is the possibility allegri gone for good now? Also I remember you saying the glazers were planning on selling their share either the end of this season just gone or the next one. Is that a part of the plan that has now changed also?

{Ed002's Note - Yes he has gone for good as far as MU are concerned. The value of the club has not topped out yet but the exchange rate is a major hurdle in any sale.}

06 Jun 2017 20:11:10
Regardless. LVG was clulaess, the football was pointless and his transfers were diabolical.

07 Jun 2017 11:15:20
Do you guys feel that the football played now is not boring? People slating LVG for his play style, but its not any more exiting to watch them play now imo.

Thanks again ed002 much appreciated indeed. Shame we have such a fickle fan base.
