I just want to congratulate former Manchester United coach Kieran McKenna for the phenomenal job he has done with Ipswich Town, back to back promotions from League One to the EPL in two years is a fantastic achievement.

A lot was said about the coaches at United, particularly McKenna and Carrick under Ole.

Yet both have shown they are excellent young coaches, particularly McKenna. He comes across really well in his interviews with the press, intelligent with a personality that is easy to like.

He is one to keep an eye on, he probably isn't ready for the United job, and if we are to go for someone inexperienced in top flight management then I think it'd need to be further down the line when all of the new structure is in place at the club to support the manager. Also I'd imagine McKenna would not be willing to leave Ipswich this summer after he's done so much work to get them to the EPL he deserves his chance to show what they can do in the biggest league in the world.

Well done Kieran, welcome back to the EPL and we look forward to welcoming you back to Old Trafford next season with Ipswich, although hopefully it's not a winning return.

Fantastic story and a brilliant club. Happy to see them back in the big time.

He’s done a fantastic job, two promotions on the bounce is an incredible achievement. There’s no reason for him to rush to a bigger club at just 37, he could have another 25 years ahead of him so we need to see how he fares in the Prem which is the biggest challenge of all, and if he does well he should think long and hard about his next move.

Carrick has shown great character this season, from having a really poor start to finishing just outside the playoffs. He can be proud that he managed to turn it around and well done to the club for sticking with him.

Just goes to cement the fact that United are a mess when coaches can go elsewhere and shine.

Maybe Ole wasn’t that bad and was constrained like so many since SAF?

Hope for ETH yet?

Amazing achievement.
He certainly did get a lot of stick at Utd and deservedly so, he always looked lost on the sidelines during games and said very little. Understandable perhaps given that he wasn't the manager and he's proved he did have something about him.
That aside, 'probably' not ready for the Utd job is an understatement. How many managers have looked imperious in the Championship, like Farke and Kompany, only to drop back down immediately. Let's see how he fares over the next few seasons.

McKenna or Carrick would’ve done a better job than Ole.

Agreed wazza.

Back to back promotions is a great achievement.
Tough season ahead next season. I've a soft spot for Ipswich since the 70s and the Bobby Robson era there.
Nice to see them back up.

Agree Shappy. Amazing achievement. Hope we can send some players on loan there next season. Fletcher, Amass, Wheatley, Ogunneye and maybe Forson (if he stays) are primed for a loan to a PL club. If Ipswich do well I wouldn’t be surprised if he is linked to the likes of Brighton, West Ham and etc. hope he is on the radar of INEOS.
He was never going to get a chance at United with the Primadonnas at the club. We need to build a squad of young, hungry players who are willing to change and learn if we are to get the most of a coach’s capabilities.

A future United manager in the working. Once EtH has built it back up from the shambles Fergie started us on this road to.

Glad to see a local lad doing well. Done a great job to finish only a point behind Leicester and ahead of the other relegated clubs.
