Ed002 you mentioned before a player who would leave unless tge manager was replaced, now that we know Ten Hag is to stay can you let us know who the player we can expect to leave is?

{Ed002's Note - It is no consequence any longer - he will be leaving with a number of others.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Ed might have mentioned that was Varane?

12 Jun 2024 15:28:05
Great. This group of players have been able to outlast managers for too long. You're either in or you're out.

12 Jun 2024 16:12:28
Hopefully nearly all of them will go.

12 Jun 2024 16:13:37
It was not Varrane. The club decided on that one. I heard all is not well with rash and eth even though he plays him. Watch that space.

Mainoo and Garnacho are very close to ETH and him staying will be good for them and development.

I think ericsen, dvb, hanibal, pellistri, greenwood and sancho need to go for sure. The sad thing about it is we really are not going to miss anything but cameo minutes from Ericksen. The rest are emergency recruits and contributed very little or nothing in some cases last year.

We go into every summer thinking this must be the end of the line for so many players in this squad but come out with most or all still there. let's hope Inoes can manage the outs as that will be a breath of fresh air.

I would take Ten Hag staying every day of the week and twice on a Sunday if it ment getting rid of Rashford. He’s one which gets played no matter what and i’m tired of it.

12 Jun 2024 19:17:44
Won us the cup with that cross field pass to Garnacho! Which may have saved ETH! So sorry you’re so tired of him!

12 Jun 2024 19:56:21
Ahmad, I hope you’re right about Rashford. It’s known that he doesn’t get on with some players, and he’s one who has been consistent in downing tools for several managers.

He also had a personal issue which caused a rift in his family / circle. I’m the first to support the local lads especially from Wythenshawe, but it’s time for him to go.

The problem will be finding a buyer, and that’s why I think he’ll still be here on 1st September.

12 Jun 2024 19:59:16
I take your inside info with a pinch of salt as well ahmad.

Ten Hag wants Benni Mccarthy to get a new contract.

12 Jun 2024 20:17:31
Sorry Patrick but he didn’t and I’m with Gnev2 on this.

12 Jun 2024 21:08:32

Benni is gone. Press writing all kinds of bs when it comes to united. now they are inventing stories to try and save face on some of their Previous reports which is far from the facts on many things.

12 Jun 2024 21:28:08
I find the media coverage of United appalling. Within hours and all the following day after announcing we were sticking with EtH, taking Sky an example, I am presented with articles such us 'Are Man United right to keep ten Hag? ', 'Does ten Hag deserve a new contract? ', The numbers show ten Hag has plenty to do' (err yeah we know) . Not to mention the Lineker/ Shearer debacle within ten minutes of lifting the FA Cup.
What other club or manager is treated like this?
I'm actually looking forward to the new season! Feel like I've been through the wringer this last season. Imagine how Erik feels.

13 Jun 2024 07:09:36
100% Spenno. Journalists in the UK are a disgrace. I’d love to see the whole industry quashed and started again with the very few who actually have some respect and empathy.

Unfortunately ETH is going to have to get them on-side whether he likes it or not, because the pitchforks will be out as soon as we lose a couple.

13 Jun 2024 09:02:21
Get that Shaw Rashford axis going again BR and we’ll see!

13 Jun 2024 09:14:46
It will have been Sancho.

13 Jun 2024 09:17:08
When we read that 'the same players have thrown x managers under the bus' the common denominators across most managers this decade have been Rashy and Shaw. Both pretty outspoken and Shaw in particular has been maligned by at least Mourinho. But I don't personally see EtH being anything but unfair with his players. Sancho got everything and more before being outcast which is all they can ask for surely. Arguably Rashy should have been given a few months to sort out some things. Maybe he was offered but declined.

Spenno, I don't think it's a case of players intentionally throwing a manager under the bus.

I don't think they decide they aren't going to play for the manager or stop trying. Obviously there might be the odd individual who does that, but for the most part I'd expect professional pride to be too much for them to intentionally not try in games. Everyone on this site wanted to be a professional footballer, yet very few actually make it. It tends to be the most competitive ones, that drive is what makes them do the extra training, to push themselves and make the sacrifices needed to make it.

People who are that competitive find it very hard to not try their best.

My view is that the players have unintentionally thrown the manager under the bus by not having the mentality needed. For the most part all of our players have players have played well at times under all our managers. They tend to do well when the goings good. New manager, positivity around the club and less pressure and suddenly they play well.

Then the expectations increase, they've had a good start under the manager and now comes the expectation for them to take the next step. To start competing, and even winning things. Performances come under more scrutiny, dropped points and poor performances get more attention and are hyped up to be a bigger deal. As that pressure increases the players ability to perform decreases.

Especially when the press smell blood and the situation becomes incredibly tense, the pressure is massive.

That's when all form goes out the window and the players buckle. Then the manager is sacked and it's said the players have thrown the manager under the bus, they stopped playing for him or that he "lost" the dressing room.

I'm not sure that quite accurate, I think it's more a case that they can't deal with the pressure, that plays on their minds and they struggle to play to their full ability because of that.

Rangnick looked to hire a sports psychologist to work with the players as he found them to be mentally weak.

It's the pressure they can't stand, not the manager.

Professional pride Shappy? Give me a break. Half the squad was injured up until a few days before the cup final. That’s not professional pride. They’re fakers a lot of them.
