Top flight teams continue to draw away leaving us quite literally standing still in the table and also on the pitch.
Mediocre teams fast catching up and soon to pass us by all recent evidence.
Still, we have progressed and finalised Smalling's new deal. Why am I pessimistic and not in the least reassured.
Theresa May would probably do no worse as our manager.

Really never thought I would see the day where MUFC would look like Liverpool of a couple of years ago. Your manager is there 10 years too late. I believe he is taking you further back than are Ron Atkinson from Old Swan Liverpool ever did.

I wish there was a reset button or a way to freeze your position in the league, quit and come back next year.

That small club mentality at Anfield today was dreadful. We will be luck to finish anywhere near top 6.

Next season will be better.

The tragic thing is we are now resorting to “Next year will be our season” oh how the mighty have fallen!

Today was woeful, we offered nothing. Without wishing to sound dramatic, if we do not change how we are operated so we seem a marked improvement in recruitment and a balanced team, if this decline continues I would not be surprised to see us being a bottom half club rather than fighting for top 4 and titles.

Next year will be better, we just gave smalling a new contract, I suppose Jones will be next, we need to get rid of players, not giving them new contracts, then the manager needs to go with them, then Woodward needs to go, it's not a ******* business, it's a football club,
Username a lot of posts there lately about not supporting the club when we are going bad, that's not for me, I'll support united through thick and thin, but someone needs getting the door now.

I can take losing games but the way we play "football" and the way we looked not arsed on the pitch is a disgrace.

Jose and a long list of average overpaid walkers need to go.

Listened to great interview yesterday of the South African rugby team and how they sorted out issued with different back grounds skin colour, religion etc with players. They set out their plan for the team and ethos, they met with players and agreed to respect all beliefs but the team had its ethos, expectation and actions, every player was then invited to join, from then all new arrivals to the squad was told the same this is what we do either buy in or go. Our culture must be restored our reputation must be restored, if it means bring in the kids from the 23s to show fight and passion so be it, but we must set that level again.

Jose and Man u players present.

Have you heard keano speak? I sure hope ya all did.


I think Jose should hire Keano as a number 2.

Ye out in the man utd shirt do your job. Plenty of time for social apps when you retire.

Best speech this morning.

Keano could upset a fair few of this squad I think if he got the gig. Not sure whilst Fergie is around he’d ever get the nod though.

Not when they spend too much time on Instagram and not doing what their paid to do on the pitch

Would your boss keep you if your lazy ass failed to do any work and your online profile was full of carry on antics?

I'm sure many other posters on here would go through brick walls for Man utd and the shirt let alone 250k for 2 training sessions and a games per week.

Eric I agree that would happen! However as a Man utd Fan! When I spend my money to watch Man utd play I expect to see MU play to a standard.

Some days I wish SAF would come down burst through the door and let rip. I have come to the conclusion the more the managers fail the greater he looks.

I have for weeks listened to Rio, PS and GN talk about how they had leaders in the dressing room
Who put players in their place?

Would it hurt them or JM for them to drop by and tell this crop to pull up their socks?

Rant over.

Reddevil i am sure you would but you are a fan they aren't they are employees and unless players did their social media stuff when they were supposed to be training, i don't see how this is an issue.

Lewis Hamilton is a social media animal, he launched a fashion range and recorded a single, an Instrgram groupie. but he wins the World Championship. I don’t care what hair style they have, what fashion range they launch, how much social media activity they have. as long as they do it on the pitch.

Anybody seen the BT film "too good to go down". It follows the club from Sir Matt retirement to the Doc getting sacked. It really does look like history is repeating itself in respect of not giving Managers time to build and getting rid of certain players. Damn good watch 😆😆.

Was a great documentary Bfro. I’m one of the younger posters so I never lived through the pre Fergie era. My dad and grandad often tell me stories of these times having lived through it so it was nice to learn more in depth about the tenure under the Doc. Something that stood out to me was that even in division 2, our aim was to play quick attacking football to entertain the masses turning up to old Trafford each week. Having fast and exciting wingers with a centre forward that could bang in the goals. Hill and Coppell really seemed to get the fans off their seat.

Not seen the film yet, however having supported from 68 I lived every game of every season in that era. Some of those seasons hurt, people don’t realise how tough it was both football wise but standard of living and way of life. It was way tougher than life is now and I don’t know if the film shows it, but because there were fewer distractions, no social media, the fate of your team seemed to mean even more. The fall from the pinnacle was spectacular and how City/ Liverpool fans loved it. It is what made me so angry when we didn’t have a plan for SAF retirement. I remember Manchester was not the clean snazzy City it is now, the ground was gritty and grim but very much a fortress for the fans yet less so the team.

Just finished watching, scary similarities with today's team and situation, maybe the hierarchy at old Trafford should watch this😉.

Guys, it's football. Yes, it's a pain in the hoop, but there are much more things to be angry or depressed about. We're all adults, and hopefully we all now realise that it's really not that important in the big scheme of things.

Well said Noucamp,

At the end of the day, all it is is football, not important whatsoever, it's a game.

Review Of The Day 16th December 2018

Talk of United looking likely to appoint Paul Mitchell as DOF from Leipzig, any of the Ed's know if this could be a good appointment for the club? The right choice?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I don’t think so.}

16 Dec 2018 00:40:49
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 09:15:13
What happened with the supposed approach for Berta at Atletico?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Andrea Berta was the Director of Football chosen as the desired choice of Mr Mourinho in 2016 and the club were looking for a Director of Football and Berta was one of the two that Mr Mourinho was comfortable with = but he has since then been promoted from his position as Technical Director to the co-ordination role of Director of Football which might well suit Woodward but would not address the true problem the club has. If appointed to a similar role at MU it would be another major mistake.}

16 Dec 2018 09:46:16
Mitchell sounds like a yes man and not what we need.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 10:19:27
Sorry ed, the true problem?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - That there is no effective structure without a Director of Football in the medium to long-term.}

16 Dec 2018 10:57:49
It would be speculation however it sounds like the decision maker is the continuing problem. If Woodward is the decision maker he would be the interviewing appointing person so you have to think we would be unlikely to see the appointment of someone who will disagree with him or the direction he sees for the club. If Woodward has been setting the direction for the club and the last 5 years are anything to go by plus he appoints a nodding donkey DOF, I could see it getting worse. I would be concerned at appointing a DOF reporting to Woodward also creates another management layer that could be blamed for failure, so there would be two potential sackings rather than one before the issue of blame arrives at Woodwards door. It may be my opinion, which I gave on here months ago, but the owners should obtain independent advice and appoint a DOF themselves to report to the board and not to Woodward. Either get rid of Woodward or put him back to Financial matters and obtaining more noodelly noodle partners.

Agree2 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as one person.}

16 Dec 2018 13:01:09
The fact Ed’s reply is based on 2016 says it all really and shows just how long this process has been drawn out. I wouldn’t want a snap desicion of course not but approx 3 years seems to long to me. Why can’t we just make a short list of qualified candidates and just employ one.
