Massive hypothetical here but if we decide to move on from eth (50/ 50 chance) and Chelsea decide to part ways with poch (looking more and more likely) would he be someone we should consider. He has been in the frame before but has his last few experiences damaged his image?

Like Wesley Sneijder, that ship has sailed.

I don’t think Wesley Sneijder has enough experience to be our manager Grim.

Could probably still be an upgrade in midfield though Wazza. We could do with a left footed right winger this summer, Nico Gaitan anyone?

Pochettino is a very good manager, and in principle I wouldn't be against it if he was the man the new ownership turned to.

Personally however, I think perception is such an important factor when hiring a manager at Manchester United. It almost doesn't matter whether they are a great manager or a good one. It is their trajectory that will play the biggest role. A great manager who seems on a downward turn won't be given the same kind of support or patience from the fan base as a younger up and coming manager on a upward trajectory will be given.

It's the same with players. Fans are prepared to give someone still learning and growing a little more time than someone with a long and impressive CV. Someone who fans expect instant results from.

Højlund for example was given far more time than someone like Falcao despite the obvious experience and proven track record of Falcao.

Julian Nagelsmann for example is still a fantastic young coach who can and will win major trophies in his career.

But coming off the back of a underwhelming run with Bayern a d potentially a poor year with the German national team would he be given the same sort of patience as a Xabi Alonso would get? Absolutely not.

Given that even SJR has stated that this is a minimum of a three year rebuilding phase we will need a manager who will be given more patience from the fans. Fans expecting title challenges or even massive improvement after 12-18 months will be in for a shock.

That along with a more structured club with less power for the manager are the reasons why I think the club would be more likely to go for a younger manager than a more experienced one.

It's not just about hiring the best in class, but also the best fit for the project.

I was slightly poch fan tbh and wanted him ahead of eth.
I'm not sure he would have done better than eth now.
It's a no from me at this point. But hopefully he signs rashford for stupid money before chelsea fire him.

Poch would be a no for me. I think the players would look at him and his time at Chelsea and his relatively unsuccessful time at PSG (European success) and not have him. Which for me is the problem with some of these players.
