If Jose signs an extension, what would be the sentiments here?

I would want stability hence i am all for it.
Jose"s pragmatism in some away games aside against the top teams vying for champions league spot aside, Jose's track record, cv and name would more than likely bring titles, trophies and big signings.

If he is here for the long haul i hope he will bring in more of the academy players and gives them more opportunities.

Bringing in Carrick into the coaching set up seems a good move.

Thoughts guys?

I hope he extends because I honestly don’t see any superstar or potential superstar managers to replace him at the moment. As frustrating as he can be at times with his style of play, we have improved under him, have improved the overall talent level while bringing through youth and lowering the squad age overall. Also, remember when we had to go above and beyond in crazy ways to try and sign big players under moyes and lvg, under Jose big players want to come to rainy Manchester. That’s a huge power to have. I think given a long run at the club he’ll
Continue to move his playing style towards the attacking tradition of the the club, finding a balance that entertains and gets results. Again, he still costs us points settling for draws, but that’s why he wins knockout tournaments like the CL, he just doesn’t lose. But I think he’s matured (ignoring the Conte nonsense) as a manager and won’t have the eventual blowup that was his calling card. City have thrown the season on its head, but we’re through the CL and doing well in the league relatively speaking. If I have to put my money on the table i'd much rather put it on Jose in years 3-5 than some random new manager in seasons 1-3.

Great post KG agree with all of that. We couldn’t attract any top players under LVG and Moyes but under Jose we have signed some massive players. Granted we have thrown a lot of money but players want to see potential and a chance to win trophies and we must be a very attractive proposition at the moment for a lot of players. I can see Jose staying for another 2-3 years after his contract and then I think we have a succession plan in place. Never know Carrick could be our next manager 😂😉. Imagine that.
