Tonight was a wake up call. I hate people losing their jobs, but Ole is a dead man walking. Even if he makes it until the summer, he has to be replaced with someone with experience - Allegri ideally. He is learning English but worryingly, the only job I see potentially being available is City if Pep does a runner.

More importantly, the club needs a structure in place to succeed. The last 7 years have been poor from the top down. Bad appointments, bad signings and a plan that has changed so many times that we must be on plan g now.

Lets not kid ourselves either, some of the players are not good enough at all. On the live chat I got people pointing to 2nd in the league and the Europa and League cup wins. Jose stated 2nd was his best acheivement in football with that squad and we all scoffed. A man who has won trophies everywhere and he said that was his biggest acheivement.

Also, the league cup and Europa are not top competitions really. I hate the fact we won the Europa as we should have never been in such a poor competition.
Yes Ole should do better, but let's not expect miracles with what he has too.

Shaw was woefull, Matic has declined, Lingard has regressed, Martial is not a 9, Mata is done, Bailey injured and Paul Pogba being a problem at the club that needs removing asap.

While the performances are not good enough on a consistent basis, I lay the blame squarely on the board. Imagine if we backed Jose after the 2nd place finish. Let him get rid of Pogba and bring in who he wanted. Not to be told 'Na mate, your one of the greatest managers ever, but we got this amazing scouting network here that hasn't failed and instead of that cm and cb you wanted, you got Fred. Oh and he's about 50 mill off the budget. No wonder he got pissed off.

So now we are in a window and we all know that Ole is not going to get players he wants as he won't be here next season, so that's pointless. Brace yourself for some more 'club signings' and fingers crossed for a manager who can wave a magic wand over a squad assembled by 5 different managers in 7 years. These next 8 months are going to be a hell of a ride for us fans. But hey, at least we are still making a shed load of money.

Good post james.

shocking performance last night but you could see it coming with shaw, matic and lingard starting. williams deserved to stay in the side and so did peirrera even though i'm not his biggest fan he offers more than lingard. our midfield was totally overun last night we take one step forward then backwards again. after that show they should all compensate the fans even if its only ticket money, my lad got home at 3.00am this morning.

Surely just act and get Pochettino in to get the players used to his methods and new coaches. The season is done.

Great post james.

Ole seems to know other teams better than his own the way he was talking about the arsenal players you would think he would have known how to play against them a little, I know we have been a laughing stock for years now but it's starting to look like there is no way back and if it does it's going to take another Ferguson.

I'll always follow United but this will be my last year of a season ticket i'm turning into a arm chair fan, i'm not wasting my hard earned money funding them players anymore no desire no nothing, had enough.

It really really isn't, we are 5 points off top 4 and still in every cup competition, the season is far from done, people are ridiculous at times, we lost another game, suck it up and crack on. Hope the players don't think the same way.

02 Jan 2020 09:52:38
Since the europa got changed to give the winners a route to the champions league its actually become an important competition.

That is the only way we are making it into the competition next season.

But put matic and fred and lingard in any teams midfield you are going to struggle.

It’s fans with your mindset who accept this mediocrity we have stooped too who are half the problem. The club has been run into the ground. Mark my words were 5 years if we make the right appointment after olly from competing for the league, pitiful. Top 4 and the league cup means nothing to me.

Top post James.

Shaw is bang average at best. Goes forward, recieves ball and passes it back to defence or midfiled. He doesn't take on players and thus all the opposition has to do is close him down. He cannot take on defenders and cross. I cannot remember a left back with such a weak shot . It's best to leave Matic and Lingard alone. They aren't worth the time. Europa League next season would be an achievement.

02 Jan 2020 10:35:52
GDS, we are not in every competition though are we? We cannot win the league and with performances like that last night we can go out of the rest of the competitions easily.

Also top 4 is not a competition. We should not be aiming for the top 4 trophy.

02 Jan 2020 10:42:55
The structure of the club itself is a mess.
Sacking a manager won't fix this.

The players seem to trust the manager and there is a harmony in the squad.
I believe the consistency will improve by bringing in a no 10 and a midfielder.

02 Jan 2020 10:47:13
GDS, exactly the reason why we get a proper coach in now. We could actually get top 4, maybe even win a cup.

I highly doubt we do either with Ole.

02 Jan 2020 11:07:15
its not the loss that is pissing people off, its the way we lose.

there is a trend, every single game we lose away from home we lose far to easy, and we don't score, the players are bottlers they don't have the fight or the will to give a crap.

02 Jan 2020 12:44:32
GDS - you actually think OGS can get this lot into Top 4? You’re having a laugh. This is not a reaction to one poor performance. The season is littered with them at least every other week. We are a mid table side and our style of play and results show that. We have Pogba doing what he wants when he wants because the manager and club are too soft, and we have the same tactics every week. No direction, rare quality, and no tactical awareness or desire. Sorry mate - The season is done. I love OGS as much as the next man, but crikey he’s out of his depth.

{Ed047's Note - no I’m certain he will be dead serious🤦‍♂️
