Can't believe us or Arsenal didn't move for Ancellotti and let him go to Everton.

I find it amazing that these multi million pound businesses fill their key positions with unproven beginners such as Arteta and Solksjaer at these critical times rather than taking on a vastly experienced winner.

I know that could have been said of Jose but he was just a grumpy so and so who didn't want to be at Utd so that arrangement didn't stand a chance from day one.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well we didn’t go for Ancelotti because we have a manager.

Not a very good one though Caolan. Given his awful record, the club would have been well within its rights to sack him and make the massive upgrade to Ancellotti.

Like I said, Man Utd is a business not an old boys club. This is just another example of amateurism.

I bet Everton can't believe their luck.

{Ed025's Note - we cant MM..

Ancelotti is no longer a top tier manager. His last two jobs (Bayern and Napoli) have shown that to be the case. I would have loved him after Fergie but I would not take him now. There are reports of his training sessions lacking intensity and he’s too soft on his players. He has a wonderful CV m, especially in the CL, but has always struggled in the league. 1 serie A title in 9 years with that amazing Milan side in the mid to late 2000s suggests that. I think it’s a massive coup for Everton but I have a little doubt over his suitability for the role. I hope it works out though because he’s always been someone I’ve admired, I just don’t think his stock is as high as it once was. Much better and more progressive managers out there should we look for a new one.

Has he ever built a team or just inherited them?

{Ed025's Note - a bit of both actually steve, he does need money and has always bought quality but he does improve sides, and he will need to have all that and a bit more if he is to turn us into a top 6 team mate..

20 Dec 2019 11:02:02
Ending in tears Ed025, Ancelotti is just not good enough anymore, couple that with the fact that your team/ squad is poor and it's a recipe for disaster.

{Ed025's Note - thanks for that scholesy, he is good enough though and his record is second to none, i think we are lucky to have him and he has the experience and tactical know-how to make us a force once again mate, let me ask you a question... would you rather have ancelotti or OGS as uniteds manager?..

20 Dec 2019 15:09:10
I’d take OGS for now and wait for someone better.

20 Dec 2019 16:21:45
No choice Eric 😁.

20 Dec 2019 16:28:34
Neither Ed025 because they're both not good enough, would stick with OGS IF i had to pick one simply because he seems to be targeting the right players in the transfer market, young, full of potential, want to play for the club etc.

{Ed025's Note - time will tell i suppose mate..

His last two jobs have been underwhelming to say the least, poor at Bayern and even worse at Napoli, who sit 7th in the league.

20 Dec 2019 19:05:59
As opposed to the last two jobs that OGS had 😂😂😂

I jest - I like OGS in charge and his strategy although I’d like to see a DoF and some new coaches/ assistant manager injected into the club. We’re a bit one dimensional.

I accept that his last two appointments didn't go as well as his previous achievements but I do think he would have been a good fit for MU.

Mourinho's last two appointments didn't work out well but there is every chance he might find his groove again at Spurs.

The idea that Solksjaer is a better option than Ancellotti is laughable.

Ed002, what's your view on how Ancellotti might have worked out at Utd and do you predict he will do well at Everton?

21 Dec 2019 12:29:47
Jose's last two appointments didn't work out MancMan? He won the league at Chelsea.

22 Dec 2019 10:58:14
I guess it depends on what we mean by didn't work out. Ancellotti won the league with Bayern but you reckon that was underwealming.

Let's just say that in both cases the wheels came off.
