Anyone seen or heard from The Beast lately? He has been absent from these pages for quite a few weeks now, months rather. Funny that this time coincides with the downturn in our form under the current regime. Is Beast Scholes or Giggs?

Didnt post anything after the humiliation over the weekend because it would have attracted more sarcastic comments from the "Ole at the wheel" brigade calling me out on the i told u so viewpoint. Hoping the lads turn up in midweek else we are looking at a disastrous scoreline.

Hi mate - still about just not commenting as much at the minute.

I posted a few months ago during our good run that Ole should not be given the job (yet) . The players started well against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth - then played pretty much the same as under Jose and LVG since. We got lucky against Spurs and very lucky against PSG. This was ignored and the media with short-sighted fans jumped on the 'SIGN HIM UP' bandwagon.

I'm not anti-Ole, I just thing he needs to earn the job and we should have waited until the summer. Players are getting worse by the week, they are rotten, turn up once a month at best. Is Ole the best man to rebuild and kick out the weeds?

Unfortunately, yet again, the club had a plan and failed to deliver it, bowing to their media overlords and social media sycophants.

We are hard to watch and have had so much luck this season yet still don't look like making CL at this rate. Maybe for the best, so we can attract some players that want to fight and aren't only signing because they get to play in the CL.

Hopefully we sort it out during this long summer.

Fair assessment Beast, not a lot to disagree with there. Not Ole’s fault, but a symptom of how poorly run the club is. Appointment of Phelan as DOF would be the final nail in the coffin.

Nice to have you back buddy. Keep posting regularly. I am being a bit selfish in asking for your posts because i echo your views on the performances and Ole.

Thanks Ed. I am one of those guilty in indulging in trivial stats like the fastest list ;) I all honesty I don't know why either. Guilty pleasure I suppose.

{Ed001's Note - so long as someone is interested, it is worth reporting.}

Surprised Rebic is top of that list. I suppose he has a slightly awkward sort of run that masks how quick he is moving.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 14:48:07
Who would you have expected to be top Shappy? I too was surprised Device was top of the list. I thought Bellarabi was the quickest guy but he isn't even in the top 10.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 15:27:36
If Pogba played there he would be top, i regularly see him sprinting full pelt to stop an attack.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:04:01
The 4th spot is still wide open.
Arsenal, United and Chelsea are all hugely consistent.
Looks like no one wants that spot. All 3 are capable of losing to anyone.

The match against Chelsea is huge. I believe winning 3 out of the next 4 will sneak us into the 4th spot.

Agree3 3Disagree

23 Apr 2019 08:12:27
Worst case we might win the city game which would hand liverpool the title and still end up not qualifying for the champions league. We are a joke of a club right now. Hopefully there is some ambition shown in the summer.

Agree3 3Disagree

23 Apr 2019 09:52:24
Worst case is us winning our local derby? No wonder people think we are a joke with fans like that.

Agree7 1Disagree

23 Apr 2019 10:06:08
I don’t want top 4! Get rid of show boaters and rebuild properly without the pressure of losing in europe. We are mikes behind the elite of Europe so pointless entering the comp.

Play the kids in the Europa, and concentrate on getting back to where we should be in the league.

Agree2 3Disagree

23 Apr 2019 10:49:48
Yes gds. Best case is we win the derby, city still ends up winning the league and we qualify for the champions league.

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Apr 2019 11:17:15

Not being in the CL next season will mean another 2/ 3 years of 'rebuilding', as long as you are happy with that and not complaining when we have similar results to Sunday all next season then fair enough.

Agree1 1Disagree

23 Apr 2019 12:08:10
Seems like it's battle of the dummies on Sunday :) playing Chelsea is the easiest way to regain form after a tough run right now.

I'm not looking forward to it lol.

23 Apr 2019 12:43:24
We need to beat City anf that should be our motive rach game. I don't care wjo wins the title but we shouldn't lose to City just because Liverpool qill have a chance of winning.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Apr 2019 01:29:08
Interesting situation.
Now that Chelsea drew, a win against City could potentially put us back in top 4 (pending Arsenal game) .
Liverpool fans will be hoping we beat City. City will go all out to beat us. Now we will see why are our players - boys or man.
Do we want Liverpool or City to be PL champion? It's all in our hands. What a predicament.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - you should play to win every match even if it means helping you’re bitterest rivals win the title 666 🤣

23 Apr 2019 04:48:07
I think I would want us to try and win but I also remember when faced with a similar situation a few years ago slippy G slipped made a back pass to Drogba to ensure their win. Returning that favor would be nice.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:08:51
As a pool fan, the thought of united “having a say” is all completely irrelevant. City will embarrass united and that’s the bottom line. We are more hopeful of their game against Burnley and Leicester. The only favour you could do Liverpool fans is finishing out of the top 4 and continue the spiral down 😊.

Agree4 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:09:46
Shouldn't be a question that even enters our heads. We play to win, end of discussion. Liverpool and City are fighting for the title because they deserve to be. We are 20 odd points behind because we deserve to be. The league us in their hands, not ours so what will be will be.

Agree6 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:30:04
After what we witnessed at weekend I don’t know why anyone is bothered about Liverpool or City. We have our own mess to sort out and dreaming that we have any say in the title race is just desperation to stay relevant. We should be trying to win every game for ourselves, what will be will be.

Agree6 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 07:52:19
benny we have won more trophies in last 3 years than you have in the last decade.

Agree2 2Disagree

23 Apr 2019 08:01:26
Of course we play to win Betty, doesn't mean the blow of losing won't be softened by the fact it scuppers Liverpool's title bid. :)

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 08:36:39
Other than being relegated I can not think of anything worse than Liverpool winning the title so i will happily take a loss on Wednesday. Anything under 1st means we lost just because the money men reward you for being rubbish ie finishing below the top spot and getting Europe doesn't mean it should be good enough.

Agree0 3Disagree

23 Apr 2019 09:34:44
Common sense Moyes, you clearly don't remember us beating king Kenny's Blackburn on the last day of the season which gifted you the league but you messed it up and couldn't beat West ham, and we had zero on the line in that game as well, you'd rather not win and give a massive boost to your champions League position because you actually think Stevie deliberately gave a back pass to drogba?

By the way do you not remember him doing the exact same thing against France in the world cup, he probably did that because he knows all man United supporters are England fans and he wanted to throw that game as well to piss yous off, he really was that obsessed with United don't ye know. 🙈.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 09:55:05
So you gifted us one premier league title and we didn't take it yet we are still 13-0 up. I'd take 13-1 if it means we get top 4, not like the other team that can win it isn't a big rival also.

Agree0 2Disagree

23 Apr 2019 10:28:03
What on earth has this got to do with the past / trophies 😂 this isn’t even about rivalries, this is about wanting your team, whether it United or Havant and Waterloovile, beaten. Fans sit their and claim pogba et all are mercenaries that don’t care about the club, yet fickle fans want their team to actually lose. Pot calling the kettle black.
The decent united fans want to win every game, and thank god there are some on here, we have plastics on our page too, so I feel your pain boys.
As I said, it’s all irrelevant, the team could give 150% but will still lose. If you boys want to say “ stops you winning the title “ as if it’s some achievement, we will see what an achievement it is in the summer when no big players will come to Cardiff level manager and a team not playing with the big boys. Not to mention missing out on huge revenue whilst trying to pay of a billion squid of debt. He who laughs last laughs longest.

Truth be told I don’t think your capable of beating city so the helping us out dilemma is irrelevant. That’s just how I see it and expect it to unfold. Your players seem to be on holiday already. I understand your players not caring who wins the league, but they seem to not care for their own club.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 12:34:20
GDS2 is right, it is all irrelevant, how foolish of us to forget that football began in 1992.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 13:22:59
This hoping we lose thing. I really can't understand it. I grew up with Liverpool winning everything, so obviously I hope they don't win it. But not at the expense of us losing a game. Any game.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 14:03:19
Doesn't matter City will need to play poorly to lose, it's up to them.

If both teams play to the best they will win end of.

I don't care for either club but from a long term position for Utd it is better for us that the sovereign wealth fund of Abu Dhabi win the league.

If Liverpool win it will put them back at the top table. If city win it will only serve to increase the volume of complaints about them buying the league and financial doping.

Ed, Who do you think would be the right candidate to not just guide Ole but also help create a strong foundation and get the football right?

I don't know much about the names mentioned as nobody really mentions them. You think you could shed some light on the names we are linked with?


Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No one will be “guiding” the coach.}

22 Apr 2019 22:36:46
Hes the manager of one of the biggest football clubs in the world, he's not 4 years old, even though he is the babyfaced assassin.

No one should need to babysit him.

The technical director will just be there to make sure recruitment matters run more smoothly. We have a lot of scouts and they need to be on the same page with the manager.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 06:34:07
Exactly DSG.
We absolutely have to get transfers correctly from now, manage wage structure, sort contracts.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 09:21:13
Didn't mean guide in the literal sense.

DSG - Of course he's no 4 year old and thank you for reminding me that he is the manager of the biggest football club, I wonder how come I forgot that.

The context of the post was different, it was a reply to what Ed 01 had said about Ole being the wrong choice and other things that were needed.

That's why I'd asked him who does he think would be right man to help him build the structure that is needed.

I doubt my post meant that Ole needs a babysitter.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note -OGS will not be building any "structure".}

22 Apr 2019 22:02:24
If you have the time, is there any foundation in M Phelan coming in as a footballing director?

Thanks for any clarification in advance.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

22 Apr 2019 22:10:23

Kind of happy with that but till leaves the scope for Ed W to bring in some “ virus’ “.

23 Apr 2019 10:49:01
Well you seemed to have gotten it right now benny. he's doing a good job and has all his players fighting tooth and nail for each other.

23 Apr 2019 11:28:47
Only took us 30 years to get over the boot room era mate. I just think everything top to bottom should be cleaned out and started again. Phelan, Woodward, Ole, just stinks of stagnant water.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2019 21:02:29
Is Mike Phelan the new dof?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2019 20:57:43
During our managerial changes, has the backroom staff always changed or have some remained throughout. Specifically i'm thinking about fitness and conditioning staff. I am asking because aside from the players who can't be bothered like Martial, there are others who do care but just seem far less fit than other teams.
