Another stupid decision by Ed Woodward. Why couldn't he just wait till the end of the season. May be has now gotten his "Yes Man".

Not happy with the decision but Ole will have my respect as he holds the position of the Manchester United Manager. Hope he turns us around and gets the team playing as we want and gets the results that we want.

Great and only decision that could be made, the press conferences were becoming a joke with Ole constantly having to fend off questions about the permanent job, I’d imagine that’s why it’s been announced now. Also we will be looking at transfers for the summer, a club in limbo isn’t massively attractive to anyone so now the stability should hopefully help us get the players we need.

Ole says what the majority of us think, he got rid of Fellaini as many wanted, played Rashford through the middle, dropped Valencia, played pogba further forward, got the team attacking and scoring more, there’s no reason to think he doesn’t know the positions and players we would all want to sign, and hopefully he improves the squad in the summer. Exciting time to be a fan that’s for sure, enjoy the ride.

Sorry disagree. He has done it so the transfers can be sorted out. Apart from Guardiola there are no stand out managers.

28 Mar 2019 10:07:47
Ole ticks a lot of boxes for me. He knows the club and knows what the fans expect from the players.

My only concern is how much he'll be backed in the summer, hopefully we bring in more hungry young talent which he can help develop.

28 Mar 2019 10:10:57
Ole Ole Ole!
Has our support, now he can make decisions with the future in mind.

28 Mar 2019 10:41:57
On the fench with this, great job so far, but there have been a few cracks, hope he grows and becomes a truly great manager for Man Utd. Time will tell, he has surpassed all expectations, I hope he can keep doing it. This first transfer market is massive, with both incoming and possibly more important, out goings.

28 Mar 2019 12:05:52
united addict has he not already done what you have posted

the football and results have both been what we want.

anyone who says he doesn't deserve the job is as clueless as woodward.

what more did people want for ole to get the job.

28 Mar 2019 12:34:25
Bolger you and me have been watching different games then. United have hardly been exciting in 2019. We have been playing in second gear most of the times even with Rashford playing where you want, Pogba playing further forward and without Fellaini.

28 Mar 2019 12:53:08
UA, that's a typical reply of a plastic fan.
Ole has hardly had few months to impose his philosophy.
Everybody knows that the club is in a mess. (Lack of structure, poor transfers, etc, . )
Still he has managed to lift the place and had a start which no manager in the history has made.

Everything will not happen at once. Atleast he is playing the right players in right position for starters. He is conducting himself as a proper Man United manager.
And mainly he has brought back the "Never Give Up" attitude.

28 Mar 2019 13:32:12
How is this being plastic TrueRedDevil? Care to explain that snide comment please. We surely didn't give up against Wolves. Never mind the result though. I just questioned the decision and the timing of that decision when we have just suffered back to back defeats. Ole might have done enough for a lot of you but he has hardly done enough for me to be given the job midway through his "temporary" role as caretaker manager. I agree that he has lifted the place but after the reign of the last manager, anyone would have had that effect on the squad.

Under Ole, how many games has Martial turned up? how many has Pogba been up for? Brought on Lingard when he was limping in the warm up thereby risking the player. Some rookie mistakes have been made every now and then. Agreed that has had the rub of the green in some games, like Spurs, PSG etc and he has played a few good ones like Chelsea in the cup but there have been quite a few deadly boring games and that isn’t exciting. Under the “toxic one” as some used to call him, most said that the squad was talented, and the only problem was the manager and he wasn’t allowing them to play with freedom. Now that he is gone, you are questioning the players that Ole can't do wonders with them. So what is it, was the manager wrong then or the players?

My arguments on this page won't make any difference to the decision makers and Ole has been made the manager and he will have my respect, whether I like it or not. I just hope that this decision has been made using the brain but I am afraid it has been made using the heart. I also hope that he has the desired effect but I am also afraid, this will end up like Roberto De Matteo’s temporary charge at Chelsea.

I think United Addict is Paul Ince!

28 Mar 2019 14:46:50
Haha Ports.

UA, you think anyone could have come in and beat Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal at their home?
That PSG comeback was nuts. Never had I lived such a night since the Fergie era.

On another note, there is no other top class managerial option available right now.

28 Mar 2019 14:54:33
so addict.

the fact is since ole has been manager we have scored more goals, conceded less. had more attacks, more shots, more sprints most points least losses etc etc - i could go on and on and on and bore you with the rest.

your not telling me you have watched every game and not seen a difference in mentality?

we have lost 1 game in the prem, sit 3 points off 3rd.

pogba 8 goals and how many assists in 12 games under ole?

martial was in form until he got injured.

lingard was passed ready by the medical department not the manager and the player said he wanted to play.

and if it turns out like de matteo then he will add another European trophy to our name.

you clearly have not been watching the games if you think we have not improved.

28 Mar 2019 14:54:45
United Addict. I really hope it does end like Di Matteo’s reign lifting the champions league.

28 Mar 2019 14:56:46
It's both. Jose was stale and toxic and some of the players just aren't good enough. And we have an idiot running things. Jose has gone. Ole will hopefully move on those players who's best before date has expired. Indeed this has started with Fellaini gone and no new deal for Valencia. Although some, for now, remain like the last few packets of super noodles unwanted and unloved. If we can get this director in and ship a few more out, clear some wages, sign up the new deals on players and bring in some exciting additions we should go in only one direction. I have concerns but I also have hope.

28 Mar 2019 15:41:51
Good reply Mort.

28 Mar 2019 16:34:38
Thanks TRD.

I could not be happier 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁.

GDS2, yep he did what most of us would have done, does not make us great managers. If he can persuade our top talent to stay and commit to a future and sell his vision to some new buts and finishes top 4 it will be a dream start.

28 Mar 2019 17:35:38
UA, you seem to be a Jose Fan. Just like Jose (of the recent times) always finding faults, always looking at the negative aspects instead of appreciating the positives, you always come out here giving a negative vibe.

Everyone knows the squad needs massive improvements with quality signings and time to get us playing that free flowing attacking football that you and all of us would love to see. There are also other issues with our infrastructure, player development, our wage structure among others and all of these need time to sort out.

The fact is Ole deserved the chance with what he has achieved in terms of the results and the uplift of the mood at OT within the fans, the players and everyone at the club. If you can't feel the buzz and excitement that Ole and his staff have brought back to the club after a very long time, and only want to see negatives then there's nothing one can say.

28 Mar 2019 19:28:17
United addict.
This squad was 2nd last season playing poor football.
He took over the same squad pretty much in 7th playing even worse football.
He turned the mood in the camp around straight away. Has had some outrageous luck in some games that's true but he got results.
The football is not amazing but its much improved. We are scoring goals and creating chances.
We don't have the players to play amazing football.
Our midfield is very very very weak. Only 1 of our starting 3 could command a place in the better teams. And behind that if any of them are injured are fred and mctom.
So i understand you are frustrated by the lack of amazing players but all of pep fergie and clough togrther couldn't make our midfield great.
Martial is massively inconsistent still and our defence is very suspect.
Jose getting 2nd was a huge over achievement with this squad ole winning 14 out of 19 is also over achievement. The squad is very weak in vital areas and the 1st 11 is short 3 or 4 so until that's addressed then you won't get the amazing football you crave.

29 Mar 2019 05:22:16
Excellently put forth Ken.
You have addressed almost all the shortcomings of the club.
But, some fans just ignore these facts and want miracle to happen in few weeks.
We need to be practical here.

The club needs an overhaul. We have tried 2 top managers.
Now we have given it to one of our own.
Let's hope for the best.
