The failed former Cardiff manager or Ole Gunnar Solsjaer as I like to call him did indeed oversee Cardiffs relegation from the Premier league however just for clarity, Solsjaer joined Cardiff on 2 Jan 2014, and managed Cardiff for 18 Premier league games, winning 3, drawing 3 and losing 12. Cardiff were 1 point and 1 place above the relation zone when Ole came in so yes he did bring them down but it's not like Cardiff were fighting for top 6 at the time, they were always getting relegated for me as a betting man.
So please when anyone mentions the failed Cardiff Manager please try to remember that he joined midway through the season, he joined a terrible team that were already on their way to relegation, fair enough though, Ole indeed could not stop them being relegated.
Lampard couldn't get Derby, playing in the championship, not the premier league to the playoffs, does that mean he's not capable of bringing Chelsea into the top 4 because he failed in a similar situation at derby.

{Ed047's Note - well lets all hail the successful Cardiff manager then

Wake up tomorrow with another senseless argument.
Its what he is doing here that counts. He has been our worst manager since the late 70s.

Some people on here will argue that black is really white because it gives them some kind of misguided idea that it makes them some kind of superior 'fan' if they don't criticise.
It doesn't. It just means that other people may have a different opinion.

Or that others don't have their heads in the sand.

Well said Betty.

I can’t work out if you’re praising or slating Solsjaer here Ross?
Very strange post that mate.

03 Jan 2020 09:35:31
So Ross let me get this striaght just to be sure what you are saying in ole's defence.
He took over a team mid way through the season that were not in the bottom 3.
But he got them relegated but it wasn't his fault?
Im not sure I'll give you a call if i ever need a defence lawyer😂😂.

This "failed cardiff manager" title annoys me.

I had a bet with one of the fellow poster that Red Man will call out Ole as failed cardiff manager atleast 10 times.

1 down, 9 to go lol.

03 Jan 2020 09:51:12
What happened the following season in the championship Ross after he spend unprecedented amounts then for cardiff a championship club?
Tell us how he nearly got them back up? No you can't because he had them heading towards division 1 begore they had the good sense to fire him.

03 Jan 2020 10:02:34
I agree TRD.
I don't think its right to continually refer to anybody like that. Just my opinion of course.

03 Jan 2020 10:41:20
My point is simply that I think its thoroughly disrespectful to Ole Gunnar Solsjaer when fans of his club are referring to him as the failed Cardiff Manager. The reason I gave stats was to provide context and balance for when he is referred to as the manager who relegated Cardiff City just in case some people might have not been aware that he wouldn't have been in charge of Cardiff for a full 38 game season and may have formed an opinion based on that.
I don't think I'm any superior kind of fan because I support Ole, as I said to park yesterday we all are passionate as fans because we love the club, none of us are better or worse just i'm sick of all this change of managers stuff, we've done it a lot recently and it hasn't worked much. Do I think Ole is the second coming of Fergie, at the moment I don't and never have but who knows, stranger things have happened.
What I do believe is since Fergie left our club has never been the same, even when we won with Mourinho it wasn't the same, you knew it was going to come crashing down again soon.
We are not where we want to be at the minute, I'll be the first to admit but I believe that there are things I'm seeing like the development of youth, like the weeding out of overpaid stars who don't care about the club, like the targeting of lads who want to play for United and players with potential to bring us back.
Ole gets praised for being a tactical mastermind for beating most of the big 6 sides so far this season but then slated as inept tactically against smaller sides, he surely can't be both can he, that's why I would surmise that it's the player quality rather than the tactics.

03 Jan 2020 11:19:28
He wants to build a team around the biggest overpaid egomaniac in the squad ross. And the club are holding him to a contract against his will. He doesn't want to be here and had asked to leave.
That's some weeding out.
He is doing a very poor job overall. Notwithstanding the couple of areas where he had overseen some good change.
He is miles out of his depth.
Ive said it before it was like giving your local green grocer the ceo job of tesco plc.
He just doesn't have the credentials for the job. It was a risk it hasn't paid off. So no point making ut worse cut the head off the snake and move on.

03 Jan 2020 11:26:07
Ole’s reign at Cardiff is only discussed because he DID fail there. Without being offensive, this is Cardiff we are talking about. Not a major club in Europe. Of course his credentials will be scrutinised when he’s manager of the biggest club in the world and failing.

03 Jan 2020 11:30:12
Maybe we should refer to him as the successful interim manager?

Or the failing Man Utd Manager?

03 Jan 2020 11:38:47
😂😂😂 that made me spit out my tea utd road.
Post of the year so far.

03 Jan 2020 13:42:18
Again just my opinion, which I'm not expecting ye to agree with. Thanks for the feedback. What I would say is that some of the people replying are the same people posting stuff going mad about how an 18 year old Brandon Williams isn't starting every game, can people really not see he is 18 years old and clearly needs more time to recover.
On the pogba thing, I'd surmise that Ole is just saying the right things maybe just like fergie did with Ronnie, I dunno, I may be right, you may be right in thinking Ole is trying to build a team around him but I'd be a bit more cynical of that.

03 Jan 2020 14:11:13
Ross we all have opinions mate that's why most of us are here.
I do understand its not all oles fault i think everybody does.
Williams can't start every game. Nobody can. He is developing.
I'm not concerned by his team selection at all because it doesn't matter who he picks or who is available as its hit n miss either way.
