Morning. A question for any of the Ed's or anyone who may have any knowledge or idea. After Mourinho's comments, during and after his time with us alluding to the running of the club and more recently, Gary Neville's honest and rather damning verdict of the clubs hierarchy, is there any indication that the club IS looking to make the drastic changes required to get the club moving forward again? I don't mean appointing Rio or whoever in as DoF or whatever role just for the sake of having that position at the club or relying on a Saudi Prince to buy us or whatever the papers wish to report.

I suppose I want to know are people involved with the running of the club aware of what needs to change or are they happy to keep bumbling along as a business rather than a Football Club?

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to improve. The underlying problems were caused by the tixic fans and the club kowtowing to them. This has been explained in the apst.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Are the club aware that they made a mistake in kowtowing to the fans? And if so, will they be sure not to do so again?

{Ed002's Note - Yes the club are aware.}

13 May 2019 14:42:51
Must have burned a lot of bridges and lost a lot of credibility in the market when we pulled out of the Allegri deal Ed?

{Ed002's Note - A major mistake.}

13 May 2019 15:56:55
Of course they list credibility. They made a commitment and backed out it because they didn't have the courage of their convictions. Personally I think Allegri would've been another mistake, I don't think he was the right fit. But we'll never know. Certainly couldn't have been any worse.

My question is though, if they're aware they made a mistake in bending to fan opinion what are they doing to avoid a repetition? The fans backed the players over the manager twice. And as we've seen the last few weeks there's a proportion on here already heading that way again. So will there be an effort to move on the bad eggs in the dressing room?

{Ed002's Note - There will be players coming and going this summer.}

Honest question: is the factor of the toxic fanbase based on behavior at Old Trafford, or online? I hear about mostly positive support from the fans at Old Trafford. But the nature of social media lends itself to fans venting their frustrations online. It's an outlet for angry fans, whether or not it is healthy, helpful, or constructive in any way. It also may be a very unrealistic gauge.

{Ed002's Note - It has been done to death.}

13 May 2019 17:07:36
It'll be the online fanbase.

13 May 2019 17:13:31
And most of them fans couldn't name the the last 11 that started a game for united, some of the stuff I see is laughable, they are clueless.

13 May 2019 17:14:35
The Glazers had thick skin during the green and gold campaign. But fans unhappy at the results over a rough period with LvG made them pull out of two transfers and bin a plan that would see the club through to 2022. Utter nonsense from the club. They moved the goalposts for whatever reason and used the excuse of "toxic" fans.

13 May 2019 18:40:16
Mumbles, I think ed has referred to them as toxic fans.

13 May 2019 19:35:15
I agree with mumbles what clowns are in charge if they changed there plans because of the fans.

We panicked when pep went city. Woodward crumbled and gave into the pressure of trying to be the biggest team in Manchester.

And now ex players like fletcher and Rio are being thought about for the dof role.

Utter embarrassment.

We will all be having the same conversations at xmas. Ole will prob be put of a job because he won't be given time or backed to make changes and we will ne back to square 1.

They had an agreement with Allegri in place and then didn't have the backbone to see it through after a difficult period with LvG. They needed a reason to call off the deal in place with Allegri so they put out the "sorry mate, we can't wait around 18 months for you because the toxic fans are are outside with pitchforks".

They used the fans as a poor excuse to put out of a deal with him.

Its possibly the fans that have held season tickets for the last 30 yeqrs or so who are probably close with the a number of high end mployees in Manchester United.

I think these are the type of fans that have voiced their opinion but i could well be wrong.
