I have to say i am quite torn on the January window.
Its obvious we need new players.
But i think we should not spend until the summer when we have a proper football manager in charge of the team.

The entire season has been like this Ken.
1 step forward 2 steps backward or 2 steps forward and 1 step backward.

We seem to be over playing some of the players as well. Two quality signings will definitely help in the top 4 push.
Our rivals are also dropping points almost every week.
It's a shame we can't take advantage of it.

The hashtags ken 😂. I’m of that view too. I think if he isn’t backed then it suggests the board will look in a different direction.

Our manager can't get the best from what he has TRD.
Maguire looks worse than he did at Leicester
Awb looks worse them when he was at palace.
I wouldn't give ole another player to destroy.

That's the million dollar question Ken. Admit our mistake and get a competent manager in or double down and back the manager who is clearly out of his depth. I'd hazard a guess and say we'll do something in between. We'll get maybe one in in January and Ole will be sacked at the end of the season.

Forward planning was never our strong suit.

I feel Maguire is having trouble having to cover for the lack of positional sense in Luke Shaw.

Yesterday Matic although decent at times, didn't really close the space often against the Arsenal attackers.

Furthermore, The bench is too weak. Having to bring on Mata and Andreas shows how weak the depth of the squad is.

We are missing the energy of McTominay very badly.

So rather than back your your manager and want the best this season for the club you'd be happier for us not to sign anyone when we desperately need cms and have for 12 mths and potentially lose more ground and have a season where we definitely finish outside the top 4 so Ole gets sacked. Instead of saying yeah there are problems, there have been for a long time, they are not all of oles making, there is progress in some areas, notablely use of youth and I think the development of rashford, martial, greenwood, James, Williams etc, maybe with 2 or 3 high class signings we could really push to cement top 4 or higher. Are people forgetting Chelsea and spuds dropped points this week.
People saying yesterday how arteta is doing to arsenal in weeks what ole has never done. Lol people forget his first 17 games, how many wins were there, psg miracle etc. Did people forget we had a new manager bounce too. Sure sack Ole, we might get another bounce, and then we can sell another 18 players and buy another 12 and all the while the years go by.

Of that team that started last night, I suspect only rashford for sure, awb if he improves his attacking and Maguire possibly but by no means certainly will be part of our team that eventually begins the resurgence and sees us compete at the top again, without big changes we are so far behind the top teams .
We have a 200 million defense is that really the best defense you could assemble for that money, a midfield that I don't think scares anyone and has woeful creativity, still very little down right side of attack, I like james and glad we got him but to cover both wings as back up for me . Jury still out on martial for me uptop as I think other areas a bigger problem
I do think a better coach would see us with more points but we shouldn't kid ourselves that team last night would challenge city or liverpool whoever was in charge .
Lots of areas need addressing but fred matic and lingard as a starting midfield is a no brainer to me where to start .

Ross i just don't want the club to spend money on player the new manager might not want.
It compounds the problem.
Of course i want the best for the season which is why I'm torn.

02 Jan 2020 13:53:42
I get that Ken but what I would say is Ole has spent well, perhaps the best of all recent managers, its widely known that we have had terrible recruitment so one would hope that it would be the right players for the club rather than just the right players for Ole so that if results do continue to disappoint and regretfully in my opinion sack Ole, the players should still lhe of the calibre needed for a new manager.
What I don't want is for a new manager to come in and for example say he wants to build the team around pogba again. I'm sorry but I way more passionalty want pogba out of my club.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how money is spent - OGS is no more than a small cog in that process as I have explained before.}

You mean in that Ole is not the one responsible for the 3 transfers we have brought in so far Ed? . I get what you're saying in that Ole is only a small part of the process, ie, scouting, recruitment, contracts etc
But I'm sorry I don't get what you mean by that's not how money is spent however if I've picked up correctly and then make the point that if Ole is only a small part in the process then there should be no fear in the club buying players while he is our manager with the excuse they could not suit another manager.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that is not how it works.}
