Ole did his job at the start by bringing joy back to the players and the fans. In the last 4 games however reality has hit in. Trying to play progressive pressing football with Smalling playing out from the back and a squad that's used to playing a low intensity low block has hit in. The most important issue when Mourinho was sacked hasn't been resolved and we will keep coming back to this damning reality if it is not sorted.

The recruitment of a Director of Football. When Ole was made caretaker I was happy enough with that but I was ecstatic to see that a Director of Football would be installed. To take the running of the football team off Ed Woodward could finally see our team challenging for real honours again. It hasn't happened.

If it doesn't happen soon we will keep coming back to this place of wanting more and receiving Jones, Smalling and Young. We could get lucky and win the Champions League or scrap into the top 4 but until the appointment happens we won't be anywhere near Man City or Liverpool.

Another thing to keep in mind is our players have not been conditioned to play high press attacking football. We saw it when Ole joined, we could keep the tempo up for about an hour and then recoil. And since we kept doing it with games coming thick and fast, even the 60 minutes became a problem, the exhaustion started to tell on the layers especially since some key injuries hit us.
With a proper preseason and smart buys, Ole's Utd. will start to reflect his actual team and not an inherited team which he is patching to the best of his abilities.
I do believe a DoF will be appointed and I hope that move will benefit us immensely.

For sure that is the ideal. That a Director of Football comes in and sorts the squad to the way Ole wants to play. However there is just over a month left in the season and still no sign of a Director of Football. Most deals are getting done now and not in the summer. If a Director of Football doesn't come in ASAP and at least try to shape the squad the way Ole wants we are going to be left with a Superstar Ed fancies to improve the commercial end and Smalling trying to control and pass the ball. History will repeat itself if it doesn't change.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about the Director of Football already.}

Y'all getting too hung up on a director of football. Expecting someone to come in and wave a magic wand. Ain't happening. Never expected to happen this season. We couldn't get it done in 3 years so no chance in 6 months.

Well then let's keep our hopes low and expect much of the same from the last 6 years.
