On the manager position, l feel people are forgetting Ole is there and doing great but it's a great club team with him, Carrick, McKenna and Phelan are United through and through. My worry if we do go for Poch is he brings in a new team and that can upset everything. I feel it was the main reason Moyes struggled, instead of working with them and slowly working his way to build his team, he cleared house and lost a lot United experience. Would Poch be prepared to work with Carrick McKenna etc? For me a huge decision will be not only the manager but the back room team he keeps or brings in, for me he must keep these lads at least until he is fully embedded in the club.

Very good point and totally agree with all of it.

Good post and another reason why the DoF appointment is more important than manager/ head coach.

During the special ones reign at the club poch name was mentioned by many as potentially our next manager .
Many pointed out that yes he had done an excellent job at Southampton and spurs but what had he won in terms of major trophies .

Ole has come in done great but the same people who didn't or don't want poch for lack of trophies regardless of playing style etc suddenly want ole after 8 wins .

I hope ole does amazing and gets the job but i suspect that poch will be our next manager.

My worry is how much is down to Mike Phelan, he has said he is only here until the end of the season, if he doesn't stay also, then I wouldn't be sure about giving it Ole permanently.

Do any of the Eds have any updates on where we are with the recruitment for DOF?

If Ole gets the job and asks Phelan to stay he isn’t going to refuse is he?

Its too early to judge ole and to award gim the job imo.
I hope he gets it if he doesn't poch is a very good candidate.
He has not managed to get over the winners line just yet. That is a concern as he has come close quite often .
But that in itself is a good achievement. Spurs have been competitive for a few seasons under him. On a tight budget.
If ole gets us into the top 4 then he will have overturned a huge deficit and played every team in the league at least once and done better than any or most of them.

Is this the same Phelan that when he was Fergie's last assistant he was widely derided for just being the guy who put the cones out at training and mocked for his shorts? Or am I remembering it wrong?

You are right Mort. Just like Carrick was hammered on here whilst playing.
