Like some of the other posters pointed out, the vibe of negativity is back on with a few losses and it's quite depressing.

OGS couldn't have done any better than what he did to be given the job. It's one thing not liking or wanting a manager, but the "yes man" taunts from some is over the top. For what OGS has done in such a short time, he definitely doesn't deserve that.

One can understand the passion, frustration of some, but OGS has been in the job for only 4 months and he's just settling down. Just wait for the transfer window, let him get the players he wants and next season we can judge him.

For now, he has got to work with what he got with top 4 in sight and tough CL games coming up. Let's back him wholeheartedly and see where it takes us.

Good post mate. Problem we have seen the last few appointments is that if people don’t support the appointment then they never give that manager a chance. Let’s get behind the team and manager and see what happens. We have a huge summer of investment needed as well as a major overhaul. Until we have done that it’s very unfair to be attacking ole. Just because he wasn’t your choice of manager does not mean you have to revel in the ‘I told you so’ mentality when we lose. It’s unhealthy and makes this site not particularly enjoyable. We are all united fans and all we want to see us return to our former glory. Ole has a huge job in his hands that won’t take one season to fix. He needs time and signs of clear progression in playing style and results. He has my backing.

Good post, Park. It's no secret I can't stand José and didn't want him here, but I wanted him to succeed, because if he succeeded, Utd were succeeding. Can't understand the other mentality at all.

So true Park3lung. The one thing with Ole is that he knows more about the club than any of the previous appointments and that's a good starting point.

It probably would take 2 transfer windows to get the quality signings to cover each position. In the upcoming window we need atleast 4 signings to strengthen the key positions.

Provided we get our targets, next season would be a settling-in period for new players (unless they settle in quickly) and also for OGS to implement a style of play. And then carry on from there.

Fine LetsPlay, reaction is OTT. But please do explain the following quoted comment from Ed002 and then tell me about your comment as to how will he get the players he wants.

"{Ed002's Note - OGS will not have any more than a minor role to play in the transfer market. }"

if he isn't a yes man, then what will he do when he isn't backed with players he wants rather than a dedicated hospital wing fr gareth bale. Please do tell me.

{Ed002's Note - The comment is clear. Many coaches only have a minor role in deciding which players to chase - and many have no involvement at all when it comes to picking players.}

ole all ready has his hands tied behind his back because of some players that are on big contracts and are not going to leave for less money. that then stops him getting the type of players to get us back to the top and with him having little input on transfer makes his job even harder.

You are living off this comment from Ed002 when he isn't saying anything that isn't normal in most clubs across the land. Clubs have scouts etc that deal with spotting players and then Woodward and his cronies will sort out the deals, I am sure Solskjaer has given an idea of how he wants to play and what type of players we should sign and then he will work with what he is given.

The important point is that Ole understands Utd, the fans and the way that the team should play.
If the club already have transfer targets which are relatively long standing and Ole is aware and in agreement then that would be normal.
If he didn’t agree with a certain target for whatever reason then we would presume that he would say so and if agreed by all concerned then the club would not pursue the player in question.
When LVG joined he was told about the proposed signings of Shaw and Herrera which were longer term targets which he was happy to sanction. These players haven’t been bad signings.
So this is probably normal when you have a proper scouting system.
Ideally all of this would be channelled and agreed through a DoF which is perhaps where the uncertainty and fault of this kind of scenario currently sits.

The days of the Ferguson style manager having total control over every aspect of the club are gone. Ole will say to Ed the Great which players he doesn't need and which players he does. Its then on the Magnificent Woody to do the deals. If people aren't interested in buying our cast offs because they're either garbage or asking too much money or if he can't get clubs to sell players we want then what can we do. The issue I'll have is if he ignores the manager and spends the summer batting his eyes at that crock Bale.
