It may have been points dropped on Tuesday but I 5ink 4th is there for the taking. Chelsea are all over the place, Sarri is clearly not happy with this players and Arsenal are very inconsistent. We’re 2 points behind both of them and if we can keep a solid run going then I think we will move past them.

Arsenal play City on Sunday, a win for us at Leicester will mean we likely pass them and also retire our momentum. Sarri and Emery started so well but are now looking for answers. We started badly but with s new Manager look refreshed. Also interesting to see Spurs are only 2 points behind City.

Onwards and upwards, hopefully!

Spurs are struggling with injuries and little investment but only 2 points of city, great effort that.

What a turn around at united tho, 4th place is definitely there for the taking .

Leicester took points off of City last month and Lpool this month. I really hope we can beat them convincingly at the King Power! Will be a good boost for the tough month!

If we beaten Burnley we would have won the title.

Your maths is awful.

So heres the question, Ole or Poch?

We have a manager until the end of the season. If he gets us into the top 4 then he deserves to keep the job imo.
Poch is a good candidate doing a good job.
There will be other candidates too i'm sure.
Love the way ole has lifted the club and it seems like a much happier environment for the players.
Poch is on the edge of the title race this season. Injuries coming at a bad time for them and could really derail their season and they could just as easily slip out of the top 4 unless they get players back soon.

Difficult decision as we know.
Poch is doing a good job as always. Spurs are at or about where you would expect for there consistent level of performance over the last few years and that’s a credit to Poch. As Ken says pity they have some key injuries right now or they could be pushing Liverpool all the way. They may still. Still has not produced a winner though.

Ole is doing a fantastic job right now. He has United buzzing again. Looking more like the 2nd place team from last year than the 6th placed team we are now. But there are some very big challenges coming up that will tell us more about how much he has learned in the last few years and IF he has the makings of a good manger for us over the next few years.

I don’t like the thought of Zidane - just not right for us I don’t think.
As for the remaining candidates they would be as much a lottery as Moyes, Van Gaal and Mourinho were, in my opinion. Could work, likely would not for many reasons.

At the moment I lean toward Ole he seems to be the right person, in the right place at the right time. He knows the club, the expectations, has the backing of many in the club and has the squad performing. There is still risk with Ole but there is risk with anyone. I would like to see him paired with an experienced DOF who understands United. I think that is impossible unless United were able to prise Van der Saar from Ajax. But I doubt that will happen. Possibly a job Gary Neville might aspire too? As I think he is more of a DOF type than a Manager.

Time will tell. Sorry that was longer than I expected. Ole. For me right now.

It’s interesting to see reports that internally John Murtagh and Tony Whelan are being considered by EW for the DOF role. I don’t know anything about these guys, time to do some research.

01 Feb 2019 08:55:14
Do the Ed’s know very much about these two guts?

{Ed001's Note - it is odd, they are both youth development guys. Neither have any kind of experience or knowledge of the role of DoF. Whelan has written some interesting histories of United and youth development as well as some papers on youth development, but nothing suggests either have a clue about being a DoF.}

Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

Isn’t Whelan in his 60’s? Must be nearing retirement surely?
Doesn’t sound like a long term solution to a very real need.
