You do have to wonder about Woody. ‘A thorough process’ we were told, a good run and suddenly Ole is appointed. Since then it has looked less than rosy and yes, I know we have a lot of player business to do both in and out.

Yet look at Spurs tonight, Poch may never have won a trophy but he continues to impress. Was he considered? Was anyone considered? What thorough process was undertaken? I love Ole and I was caught up in the rush to appoint him but actually cool heads were needed and we didn’t get that, we got the easy decision, one of our own, who made an immediate impression, what could possibly go wrong?

I hope Ole can rise to the challenge, right place and right time and so on but there was no thorough process. The biggest club in the world did not undertake any sort of process, amazing that we continue to knee jerk from Manager to Manager. No other business would accept a CEO making it up as he goes along. Stunning.

{Ed0333's Note - why you gave an interim manager the job before his contract was up I will never know? Oh I knew why because all his ex United playmates in the media clamored for him to get the job so they could waltz round Old Trafford once more like they owned the place. It’s crazy how a club of you’re stature made this appointment. You missed out on Allegri because of dissenting voices and for sure missed out on Poch if he was ever viable. Point is OGS is not the answer and you’ll be looking for a new savior soon.

At the time it seemed like the right thing to do, to kinda put to bed all the uncertainty and start adequately planning for the next season. But now it kinda seems foolhardy and near-sighted. Its a fickle business, football.

17 Apr 2019 22:23:10
There were lots on here who didn't want poch when spurs had a tough time. Personally I feel we've made a big mistake in not trying to get him.

17 Apr 2019 22:26:01
How do you know allergi would have been a hit?

Ole deserved the job it's the his fault the players are rubbish and can't last a full 90 minutes of working hard and playing for the shirt.

Fergie would struggle to get these lot winning we have average players why people think any different amazes me.

17 Apr 2019 22:29:53
Im sure poch was considered but the board probably thought the fans would be up in arms if ole didn't get the job after psg especially.

Most people on here derided pochs lack of silverware, it would be very ironic if he then went on to win the champions league.

{Ed0333's Note - and how many titles has Ole and his bus won?

17 Apr 2019 22:34:21
deserved the job on that basis so did moyes then. he will be back in molde end of next season whilst we look for another manger.

{Ed0333's Note - how can he deserve the Job a few months into an interim contract? Surely the decision should have been made at the end of the season?

17 Apr 2019 22:35:16
Ed, i think you mistook my point as some sort of slight against poch and his lack of achievements, was actually trying to make the opposite point.

{Ed0333's Note - No mate I was actually trying to endorse you’re point but I’ve been laughing so hard since City lost tonite I can’t edit and articulate to my usual high standards lol. I echo you’re point about people damning Poch about being trophyless yet you appoint a player whose in exactly the same boat with even less experience. This is Man United we’re talking about. I really can’t believe Fergie let this happen.

There is no doubt ole is high risk considering his experience if somehow we can scrape into the top 4 i think he stands a good chance if he is allowed to dismantle the squad and get his new ones in early to allow for a good pre season.
If we can do as ed002 has set out on the rumour page then he can start to build a proper team and drag us back from the depths of mediocrity.
If he can work some magic or find a way to get top 4 coupled with a clearout the future looks a lot brighter imo.
If we miss out on top 4 i effect pogba and ddg to push for moves which might mean a completely different approach to the summer window.
Im backing sanchez to come good in the next 5 games. It might earn him a move away😂.

{Ed0333's Note - I’F my wife was more understanding and reasonable towards the amount of football and American wrestling I watch I’d buy her a diamond necklace.

Regardless what any of us think ole is the manager and he deserves the summer to work with the players and to change the team to his way then he can be judged.

We will end up 6th come the end of the season and back to Thursdays and sundays.

17 Apr 2019 22:51:46
said the same ed should have wated till summer to see were we wear at this rate woody will be spending more on managers than players.

{Ed0333's Note - that’s quite funny mate. Not beyond the realms of possibility tho.

17 Apr 2019 22:56:41
Hi ed0333 well done to your boys tonight and to poch and spurs.
Ed from the outset i said if we won a cup or got top 4 regardless of anything else ole would have earned the job.
He was appointed too early and the players slipped back into the comfort zone.
I think its a very high risk appointment we can only hope that he can learn quickly and starry the season well next season.

{Ed0333's Note - thanks for the congrats Ken much appreciated. I think Ole and his coach is as high risk as you can get and if I’m being honest I don’t see it being successful. He needs a stellar No 2 because I think Ole’s tactics are not gonna win you silverware regardless of how many superstars you sign. Saying that hope you get that Portuguese fella Fernandes really wanna see him in the Premiership.

17 Apr 2019 23:14:53
What a game it was today. I am rooting for tottenham vs liverpool final but i reckon Messi might be a bit too much but i really hope its an Liverpool vs Tottenham final.

I like both the teams managers and can't stand City or Barcelona winning it.

17 Apr 2019 23:08:54
Agree with you ed.

{Ed0333's Note - why Thankyou kind Sir or Madam.

17 Apr 2019 23:55:32

That looks like one of my posts

Sentimentality and that will also cause real heartache should Ole have to be dismissed. A poor start next season and he could well be under pressure by Christmas.

17 Apr 2019 23:35:33
Ed to be honest i'm not looking to sign superstars at all mate.
I would like to see one or 2 experienced top players for sure but also young talented hungry players with a desire to succeed and improve.
The squad attitude and application is rotten to the core out needs ripping apart.
Totally agree with you I surrounding himself with the right staff. i'd put a fitness coach and technical coach just as high on the list.

{Ed0333's Note - and a Style coach because he’s no pep is he that Ole! You will sign some expensive players mate no doubt.
