Here's something positive (in a way) .

The next boss will hopefully be a young manager with bright ideas and an insatiable hunger to succeed. He is going to get things wrong of course. So the worse Jose is doing now the more rope we the fans will give a new manager doing the right things (Jose has benefited from this as he followed LVG and our expectations were crushed by him) .

Many of our fans have wanted to be ultra loyal and patient. I am not a patient man, but I think this core aspect of many of our fans should be encouraged for the right manager. Unfortunately both LVG and Jose were given far too much rope despite clearly showing a reluctance to evolve, they simply hunkered down because most previously successful people resort to what they know best under pressure rather than trying to adapt. In short they abused the situation rather than appreciated it.

A new manager will be rewarded if they show the right signs much more so than if they followed SAF. We as a fan base are now used to dross, so it bodes well for the next guy being given more rope and that is great if the next guy has the unique abilities necessary to manage our club.

1 - Attacking Intent
2 - Willingness to learn and evolve
3 - Passion for the club/ job/ area
4 - Works with players, rather than competing with players for praise/ glory
5 - Has a plan and buys players for that plan - both LVG and Jose have signed contradictory players for their system - whether Woody is to blame or not I don't know. But like Pep/ Klopp/ Sarri - I'd like to see us sign players for a desired end goal rather than haphazardly.
6 - Most importantly the next manager must know he is privileged to be Man Utd manager. He must value that enormous responsibility and constantly want to justify the choice made to hire him. Not what we see week in week out for the past 5 years from our ungrateful managers, who care more about themselves than their players, club and fans.

So I'm happy right now despite being subjected to this mess for the past 5+ years. The next guy has to be the right guy and that guy will be given time and resources. If we hire another old hat, who succeeded in the past by playing football not suitable to our beliefs then we are in for more of the same. BUT if the powers that be haven't learnt by now what we need then there is no way they would have risen to their positions of power. So hope is high guys, it's almost over and the next guy will have a huge advantage.

Bang on Beast, just want to see good football being played at United, been six years since we last seen it. Going to OT reminds of testimonial matches nowadays.

I can't believe that i am agreeing with all you've said Beast, we do seem to be stuck in the same place going over the same things. Excuses have been made time and time again we have tried to remain positive backing Jose but its apparent that its not working. I still maintain that its not just a case of firing the manager, a lot has to change DOF needed a change in ethos the club feels tainted by failures, some time out of the spotlight to work on the basics and get the whole club moving in the right direction.

Fantastic post beast and I agree with all of it. We all just want to crack open a cold beer and be entertained by Manchester United for 90 mins on the weekend. Surely that cannot be too much to ask for.

Bear in mind who's picking the next manager. Its as likely to be an old crock as much as a young manager.

Can't think of one Mort but i'm sure we'll find one lol.

That's the best post I've ever seen from you Beast. I've been very much Jose in, but at the moment I just don't see us improving under him. There are a plethora of reasons for this that have been done to death on here but every party needs to take some responsibility. I feel that the time to act is NOW even if our first choice is not available. Give the position to someone on an interim basis - that could be young and internal or someone that is willing to step in until the end of the season to build their reputation again like Benitez did at Chelsea.

Like I said I have been very much Jose in, but the proof is in the pudding and ours is currently rancid, insipid and bland.
