Good morning, long time reader but not posted for a long time. Could I possibly ask any of the eds who have 5 minutes how, in their opinion of course, we fix united. I've read a lot of comments about replacing the squad etc, but this ain't fifa and some of the comments have been unrealistic to say the least. Realistically what's our moves going forward? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - The club has made a series of errors with the manager/coach and I really think they made another with OGS. They need a Director of Football from outside the club (not the plan) and they need to resolve a number of issues with the squad (age, wages, certain players).}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002 - who would you go for if you had the power to choose the director or football? I vaguely remember you saying Marcel Bout? I take it Phelan is the one they are going for?

Also same question about the manager? Who would you have gone for if you had the choice?


{Ed002's Note - I would go for Campos but if they must have an internal appointment then Bout would be the one. Massimiliano Allegri was to become manager and he would still be first pick for me I think.}

Please tell me the plan isn't actually phelan as director of football!?

Bout you’d hope.

Paul Scholes mentioned today as possible DOF. I wouldn’t bet on it, but he probably would.

The order of events is alarming but not surprising.
The running of Utd on the football side is amateurish but not surprising.

Woodward and the Glazers are completely out of their depth in this area and have still not acted properly upon advice that they have received.

Ole should of stayed interim manager until the right DoF was appointed. Then through that appointment we could select the manager. This is all backwards.

Ole is appointed raises the morale and does well. Then he is awarded the job permanently and now his temporary assistant is to become the DoF.

Were either Ole or Phelan in the clubs thoughts for these positions when Jose was sacked? No must be the answer.

I hope that Ole is a success and I like the way he speaks about Utd, the team and the fans.

However this is not how you run a business the size of Utd.

I honestly know that I could do a better job on the football side myself. Get advice as has been sort, act upon it, understand the type of football that Utd are known for to ensure we get the right appointments, work on developing youth through the academy and supplementing this by buying some of the best young talent around Europe.
Have a 5 year plan to build a squad that we are proud of and knock City and Liverpool off their perch.

We have because me a laughing stock and the joke isn’t over yet. Just hope I am so wrong!

Danny that’s brilliant haha.

@ed02 - who keeps making these decisions / mistakes though?

{Ed002's Note - The club does. Sadly the fans simply don't get anything to do with the structure and how it operates - and get abusive because they have made their mind up who it is.}

28 Apr 2019 15:29:25
Isn't the person that gets all the blame over seeing all these decisions ed? And making the final call or is it all out of his hands?

{Ed002's Note - Overseeing? What?}

28 Apr 2019 16:01:13
Who actually sits down and decides that they will
Offer OGS the job and not, as you mention, Allegri?

{Ed002's Note - The fans fouled up the chances of getting Allegri getting the job when there was a verbal agreement in place. The club were kowtowing to the fans to give the entirely wrong person the job. The MU fans are very lucky - they keep getting what they want.}

28 Apr 2019 16:07:36
Sounds like a bit of a circus Ed!

{Ed002's Note - The club should never have taken notice of the "toxics" which led to the club back-tracking on transfers and forcing van Gaal out - which cost them their preferred coach that had already been agreed.}

28 Apr 2019 16:19:29
Fans have every right to vent an opinion, but clearly have no knowledge of how a club should be run on and off the pitch, and the club must be incredibly weak to bow to that pressure knowing they had a good plan in place. So frustrating as can’t see a way out of this now for a while.

{Ed002's Note - If they have an informed opion then sure, but otherwise they should perhaps keep it to themselves.}

Empty vessels make most noise I guess Ed.
