In all seriousness, I feel I'm learning a valuable lesson here, be careful what you wish for! Bring back LVG, or Moyes, either will suffice.

Agree3 Disagree4

What utter C**p. Enough is enough, manager and dead Woodward must go before we see anything that looks like decent football. I am embarrassed to be a Manu fan (since 1957).

Alexis benched for a couple of weeks for a player who is performing better than him and wants to leave the club.

But i don't see any questions about his attitude in the same way martials was questioned when he was benched for months for a player who was severely underperforming.

Why the double standard?

Agree3 Disagree0

Probably because it's visible that Sanchez has been trying very hard and things weren't quite coming off for him.

Martial on the other hand would be hands on hips most games.

30 Nov 2018 10:00:31
Martial was hand on the hips when playing well it's his style .
Sanchez was a star name tho.

30 Nov 2018 10:24:09
Sanchez always does a lot of running on the pitch, but when he throws his arms in the air it's seen as him being frustrated because of his high standards. Yet when Martial does it it's seen as having a poor attitude.

30 Nov 2018 10:46:48
“Things weren't quite coming off for him”

Chris sorry Mike Smalling has more goals this calendar year.

Sanchez has been awful/ abysmal/ atrocious take your pick. He hasn't been unlucky.

30 Nov 2018 14:29:16
Hands on the hips is a style? 😂.

01 Dec 2018 10:36:37
But DSG, the point is, he had been working his socks and given the benefit of the doubt.

Martial had been walking around, watching players run by him, lack of working hard for both himself and the team.

That's why they were treated differently.

I'll never have a problem with a player that always gives a 100% for the team.

29 Nov 2018 06:19:39
Hearts says Pochettinho. But, I fear he recently signed a log term contract till 2023 and we have to deal with Levy for any early termination of contract and hence, the chances of pochu becoming our next manager is almost zero.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2018 12:41:05
It is not the same with managers to players though, if Poch wants to leave and come to United then I suspect we would get him, Spurs can't keep a manager who doesn't want to be there.

29 Nov 2018 17:22:50
Agreed GDS. don’t get the fear that we won’t be able to entice Poch. We may be struggling but we are still Manchester United. The only stumbling block is whether we are willing to pay what is needed for him. Not whether we can afford it or whether he wants to come. Real will be sniffing around in the summer. Don’t think we can afford to miss out on someone of his calibre. For me, he has all the attributes to be very successful with us. I really hope it happens.

28 Nov 2018 00:23:31
Both Rashford and Lingard are highly overrated. Rashford has pace and that's it. His final ball - whether a shot or pass - is awful. Lingard has perpetual movement and that's it.

Agree3 Disagree3

28 Nov 2018 08:53:09
It's amazing that Jose and Southgate keeps picking them both, what are they thinking!?

28 Nov 2018 22:35:23
Totally disagree with everything tou have said Jodler. They are products if our youth team now playing first team football and contributing strongly. Without them, we are a team of mercenaries collecting pay cheques. We are supposed to be a club which promotes its youth. When we do, half the fans still slate them. Not cool.

29 Nov 2018 06:35:48
Same way how Jose keeps picking Fellaini, Young, Valencia and Matic. Suit yourself Tony.

29 Nov 2018 12:30:55
Just because they are products of the academy does not mean that they are good enough for the first team. We need players who are either world class or have world class potential. I don't think either Rashford or Lingard fall in to either category.

28 Nov 2018 00:20:58
I still have no idea why you wanted Lvg sacked?
Genuine question.

Yes we missed chances tonight but I still think our biggest problem is in midfield and had been for years. We need somoene to drive the team forward a Robson a Keane a Cantona if we get a real leader in place there it will make an enormous difference. The forwards are missing chances but our midfield is the key. We need driving runs from midfield and somebody with guile too. The lack of confidence has infected all the team and until we get that back it will be more days like this.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Nov 2018 00:25:52
Agreed but I think the defence needs sorting first.

28 Nov 2018 08:18:40
Nah, I reckon we need to sort out the attack.

28 Nov 2018 13:27:54
What about the management?

28 Nov 2018 17:10:52
I agree with Hendon no leaders in this squad. We need somebody to start to put some authority on the pitch and set the standard. When we start playing the slow boring football we are playing to demand some intensity and energy. Valencia is not a captain he's the worst culprit most of the time.

26 Nov 2018 13:47:35
Been largely quiet on here for a while, but read a stat today that almost made me cry. Southampton have crated more chances in the league than we have this season.

I'll leave that with you.

When every single player is underperforming, either the tactics or management are wrong. or both. I think Jose's days are numbered as I don't think he has the players he needs to suit his limited style, and the current crop don't want to play for him.

Whenever I am having an exceedingly good day and feel like I could do with a little depression I log on to the Utd pages. Works every time.

Please lighten up people there are things going on the world over that are a million times worse.

Agree2 Disagree2

26 Nov 2018 09:27:13
Yeah Theresa May could be our manager.

26 Nov 2018 10:26:29
She’d keep us in Europe longer at least.

25 Nov 2018 20:08:18
I keep seeing we need to get a dof.

A dof will sort the mess out etc.

I don't understand how he will get the dinosaur to change his way of approaching games. and get half of these pre madonas actually giving a crap

all season has been the same we are on minus 1 goal difference that is embarrassing You look at the fixtures and actually worrying about how we are going to win games

I would love to now what they actually do in training. we can all sit and have our opinions as fans and sometimes we prob go a bit over board BUT

We continue to play this dire attempt at football and I can't see us making the top 10 never mind the top 4.

We all bang on about a plan and that the toxins are the reason for this ect ect. Which I find absolute nonsense how a multi million business can base it's descions on what the fans think and say. and if that's the case that they seen a few posts on Twitter then it's actually worse that what we all think

The club is in a rot from Woodward who's only main concern is to get in as many sponsors as possible, to Jose to the players and what is it going to take for the board to wake up and realise we are going backwards. and if we don't do something soon it is only going to get worse.

There's no desire no passion no one looks arsed. you look at the players and there's no movement no one busting a gut to take the game no leaders.

Then the camera pans to the bench and there all just sat there in their comfy leather seats not giving a monkey's.

You know it's bad when your wanting to lose just so the manager can do one and take half the team with him that are full of lazy over paid whingers.

I pay 20 pound a month to play football and give more effort that this lot.

I was one for not sacking managers and giving them time but this is to much
Fans are literally falling asleep at the stadium. Literally how embarrassing is it.

The club can't bang on about a plan when it can't even keep the fans awake during games it's day light robbery and that's what is toxic not a few fans with no sense of football knowledge or background.

But for my 60 pound a year on a shirt. My year long subscription to sky and the countless money spent in the pubs and bars I expect more from what were are being served up.

Our best player wants to leave. The deadwood are getting new contracts and the prospects just get a roasting everytime they play.

Anyway rant over. Time to go and watch some actual football by playing some fifa.

What are you expecting a DOF to do? What does spurs arsenal city and Chelsea DOF. Have they even got one .

Who would be a good one and why would he do a better job than the advisors we a currently using?

26 Nov 2018 07:38:09
We only know we need/ be better off with a DOF cz Ed said to us, how many would have said, what we need is a DOF, probably a couple at best. If we bring one in then he needs to work well with the manager of the club, more important for me the club needs to implement an identity and recruit accordingly.

26 Nov 2018 09:39:26
I actually said we could do with a DoF ever since Sir Alex announced his retirement. I said that he was a DoF and a manager all rolled into one and that we wouldn't find another manager who could cope with both managing the on field and off field footballing activities of a club our size. I was concerned that especially with Gill leaving at the same time that it left no one above the manager with experience and know how of the running of the club from a fottballing view point.

I stand by that. A DoF won't change how the team performs on the pitch, at least not directly. What they will do is make sure the footballing aspects of the club are run in a more cohesive way, with a continuity and a bigger picture plan.

Since Sir Alex retired we have had three managers who all try and play in a different way, they value different qualities in a footballer and as such want different types of footballers.

A DoF would hopefully look to hire managers who want and look for the we qualities in footballers, who have a similar philosophy, one that hopefully is closely linked to the club's own footballing identity.

That way we can recruit players who will not only be good useful players for the current manager, but for his eventual replacement, and the guy after him. That way we won't need wholesale changes every time we hire a new manager.

People complain that the player signed under LvG weren't good enough, and maybe they're right. However, even if they were they still wouldn't have been any use to Jose who values very different qualities in a footballer to that of LvG. Case in point Blind worked reasonably well as a CB for LvG, but was a disaster for Jose. The different tactics just didn't suit him or make the most of his abilities.

A DoF won't sort out how we play in the short term, but over the next 5-10 years will bring a continuity that means we should be able to be successful over several managers.

26 Nov 2018 12:24:49
cheers shappy.

we will prob have another manager come the summer so maybe get the DOF in before then would be ideal.
