People's choice to replace Mourinho?
Eddie Howe or Pochettino? and Why?


{Ed025's Note - for me becks the job is too big for howe and he would need a top quality DOF if he was to get the gig, pochettino is top quality and imagine what he could do with the budget he would get at united, he has premiership experience at the top level and is very forward thinking and his teams play good football, he would be my choice mate but im sure others would say different..

1.) 28 Nov 2018 17:22:49
As long as the next manager, Who ever it maybe, Plays good attacking football and gets fans loving our style of play again. Getting fed up up with all the negativity that Jose brings with him now.
Having said that, Knowing Woodward he will give Jose another contract extension.
Also Woodward stating we don't need results on the pitch for our sponsors to carry on paying us millions each year.
See if results matter Woodentop when we are in the bottom three.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 18:05:43
I would say Pochettino is more ready for a top job than How at the moment. I also feel Howe would require a really good structure behind the scenes to aide him. I think 3-4 years of Pochettino allowing him to freshen up the squad, and get them used to playing good football at a high tempo. Then when he goes back to Spain, which he will want to do at some point. How would be the potential ideal candidate.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 22:02:28
Pochettino for sure.

4.) 29 Nov 2018 08:54:30
I think poch will be too hard to get unfortunately.

Maybe appoint howe as manager and blanc as dof? Could even maybe have stam as assistant, might sort the defense out at least.

5.) 29 Nov 2018 09:24:38
Eddie Howe is a good manager but the United job might just be too soon in his career. And we certainly aren't in a position for another Moyes type fiasco. Having said that, Poch won't come easy given that he is under contract with Spurs for another 4 or so years. I do hope that the club retain Carrick and McKenna post Jose so that the continuity remains.

But before we make another appointment, whoever that may be, we need to make sure that we have the right structure in place to support the manager and also make sure that proper finances are available to help him turn the squad around as we all know that major changes are required to the playing staff to have us compete again.

6.) 29 Nov 2018 16:16:10
Neither. We should look on here for the next manager. Sift the posts to find the tactical acumen and motivation skills.

7.) 29 Nov 2018 15:47:55

Question to eds, would he leave spurs for utd though? surely tottenham won't let him go to a rival, if it ever did come about.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has a coach so I am not sure how to answer this question.}

8.) 29 Nov 2018 18:37:19
I really like Howe, he has a very average squad playing good footy and in a very confortable position in the table, Poch on the other hand has a very strong squad failing to win anything for so many years already. One thing i know that whoever replaces the primitive one will make us look better. I just don't understand how some fans can be happy with what they are seeing from the team week in week out. Mou needs to go and Pogba, Sanchez and even Matic too.

9.) 29 Nov 2018 20:40:16
I wouldn't be disappointed with either, though Poch obviously has that bit more experience. Howe would need a good set-up behind him as others have said, but I like what I see with him. Intelligent and forward-thinking. Probably plump for Poch at this stage.

10.) 30 Nov 2018 13:18:45
Poch has all the attributes for me, a no brainer if we require a new gaffer.

11.) 02 Dec 2018 15:14:36
Big Sam hasn't a job at the moment!

12.) 02 Dec 2018 20:55:58
Id rather Eddie Howe personally i know he's not a popular choice as he's not a big name with a foreign surname, however he has built a club at Bournmouth that is playing very attractive football and he has built this club from L 2 up to the premier league. I just think he would bring our identity back for using the youth set up and playing the attacking flowing football we all want to see. To be honest nothing will happen until we cannot qualify for champions league as this cost the club and that's all the owners care about, we have an inept ceo a manager that won't change his ways and 15 players in the squad that are no better than mid table, all this together means we are where we are in the league for this reason.

13.) 02 Dec 2018 22:05:19
There is a present incumbent so the position is not open. Yet it is worrying that some believe the manager of Bournmouth is the answer to one of the biggest clubs in the world. We suffered with Moyes, who had managed a bigger club than Bournmouth. If I was to speculate I would ponder about Conte in present circumstances.



16 Nov 2018 13:47:04
So we are linked with another 32 yr old Defender today, Godin.
Although he is one of the best defenders around i would still not opt for him as he is not a long term solution. But looks like a Jose player considering his interest in Older players.

1.) 16 Nov 2018 15:42:34
20m for him according to rumours. Can be said expensive for a 32 year old player who will be 33 by the time we purchase him. But once he is signed our whole approach will change as Jose won't force the team to sit deep. We would always have at least 6 players in the opposition half as all of them would be very confident in their defence spear headed by the great Godin. Our forwards will never have to track back again and waste their energy. Our midfielders won't have to sit deep and will have the freedom of expressing themselves offensively. Opposition strikers will be filled with fear just looking at the team sheet containing the likes of Godin. This signing will change everything just like it did when we signed Matic.
PS - All those crying out for a defender can replace the name of Godin with a defender of your choice in the above written post. Read it on a loop and rejoice at the thought of having a world class CB who will change the fortunes of our great club.

2.) 16 Nov 2018 16:58:34
I would rip my skin off for godin.

3.) 16 Nov 2018 19:08:01
I'd rip your skin off too for godin.

4.) 16 Nov 2018 22:13:31
Not every signing has to be long term. the here and now is very important too.

5.) 17 Nov 2018 00:39:00
Haha sweet sailor πŸ˜‚.

6.) 17 Nov 2018 11:56:53
In. A. Heartbeat.

7.) 17 Nov 2018 13:33:24
Id say an experienced commanding centre back is a long term signing even if he is 32. We need a leader who can guide the likes of bailly Lindelof an tuanzebe into reaching potential.

8.) 18 Nov 2018 22:22:26
Easily get two more seasons out of him. Perfect signing, would be amazing influence for Bailey and Lindelof.

Did anyone watch Tuanzebe against West brom?
If this guy was playing in some Dutch or German league we would've been ready to pay over the odds to get him.
Defensively he was solid and so calm in bringing the ball out of defence. Reminded me a bit of young Ferdinand.
He should definitely get in the squad next year imo.

1.) 09 Dec 2018 20:22:13
He is known as the Rochdale Rio. He should be in the squad next season maybe even january if we could clear one or two out.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 08:32:23
Always rated the lad. Really hope he makes it at Utd.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 09:39:38
I would be happy to let Smalling, Rojo and Jones leave, then bring on one new CB and promote Tuanzebe.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 10:11:25
Agreed Shappy, if we can move those 3 on, promote Tuanzebe and sign one I'd be happy. I'd prefer a more experienced top class centre back aged between 27-31 to guide Tuanzebe, Bailly and Lindelof on rather than sign another 22-25 year old.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 17:42:57
Agree Mort. Isn't that exactly what Jose wanted, before Woodward imposed his veto on buying 'more experienced' players?



03 Dec 2018 16:20:20
I was 8 years Old playing for my school team in cotton T-shirts when One my friends Dad came to watch School games wearing a Red Jersey with Beckham Written on it.
Later i spoke to my friend saying your dad's T-Shirt was Awesome.
He said its of a player who scored from Half way and plays for Manchester United, they are currently the best team in England.

I was like, how can i watch this team play as we didn't have a Television set, i told my dad about this and he was like we'll buy a TV soon.
For Two years my dad saved money to buy a second hand Television, i don't remember which was the first game i saw, but ever since that day
i have hardly missed any game. The more i saw the more i fell in love with this team.
We never lost a game, we just ran out of time, the belief of never losing a game was always there in sight.
This club had everything that a Kid looks out for when he is growing up.
Had some really wonderful moments as a Fan and things are really tough these days but nothings going to change our love for this team.
Just need to remember why we started loving this team so much.

Are all the stories enough for my Kid to follow the same love as i do, we will rise back from where we are and get on top soon?

I am already ready with the stories anyways :P

Busby babes.

1.) 03 Dec 2018 17:53:26
We were bound to experience a down patch.

ED002 warned us that we might have to expect not qualifying for European football.

As a fan, I realise we have been spoilt we the success we've had under SAF.

Onwards and forwards (backwards for now) . It's like trying to hold onto a mechanical bull ;)

2.) 03 Dec 2018 20:13:57

I started supporting in August 68, I don’t remember anything before that. For years until 1976 I lived off stories of the Babes, the greatness of Charlton Law Best and Edwards. The TV was black and white and there were no Premier League years to reminisce on. I watched the fading glory of the three greatest players of the era. I watched Charlton retire, Law go to City, I was there when Law backheeled in 74, I was there one day to see Georgie walk on the pitch. It was all downhill, yet my late brother assured me things would get better. I trusted him like your lad will trust you. It was a badge of honour to support when we were garbage, to live through times when City and Liverpool were better. Keep the faith and he will.

3.) 03 Dec 2018 21:50:07
Brilliant little post red man, that's what a supporter does.

4.) 03 Dec 2018 22:55:08
Beck's I can't get my head around you hadn't a TV untill 1998,
Now I know things can be hard for some families and I can identify with that, and I'm not in any way judging you or anyone i'm not in to that sort of things.
By the way I remember watching that goal like it was yesterday, you just knew a good player had to come out of that moment.

5.) 04 Dec 2018 08:52:58
Leahy12, yeah everyone has hard times but we fight through it. That's what we do at UTD.

6.) 04 Dec 2018 11:18:15
Great stories! Mine is less interesting but still my story. I was about 11 years (93/ 94) when going for a long drive with my folks and the radio station was tuned into a Utd game. Had no idea who we were playing and all i knew about Utd was it is a football team. All i kept hearing on the radio was Keane this and Keane that (wins the ball, what a tackle etc) and then a name i found funny at that age, 'Butt gets the ball' 'what a pass by Butt'. Utd won the match dominantly and I started asking my folks about utd during that drive but they were not of much help, so i started reading about the team, watching highlights of matches because we hardly ever got live games at that time in my neck of the woods. But i will never forget that radio commentary and how that got me hooked to this great team!



03 Dec 2018 10:05:00
Mark Hughes is Sacked after managing just a draw against united :P.

1.) 03 Dec 2018 10:36:15
It was a poor result for Sotton against a very poor UNITED.

2.) 03 Dec 2018 11:04:39
Very telling isn't it?



28 Nov 2018 11:19:16
Didn't see any praise for FRED after the game yesterday, Clearly one of our best player on the pitch. Looked energetic and tried to link up well with others.

89% Pass accuracy,62 Forward passes,23 Final third passes,2 dribbles,2 shots,2 chances created.

Jose should have taken Matic off instead of Fred imo.

1.) 28 Nov 2018 11:40:29
Not convinced by him myself Becks, looks like another 'average' player, bought far too many of those recently. Struggles to control a ball, basic technique is lacking. Good energy, not much else about his game.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 12:07:11
To improve all these average players we should be looking at a new Coach rather than a manager. I still feel he will come good.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 12:43:08
Seriously? Did we watch the same game?

4 months in, and I still have no idea what he’s good at. Ed001 is right about his awful control though. He’s a player who will be labelled as industrious because he runs about a lot, but he’s not as good as Herrera at that.

4.) 28 Nov 2018 14:53:07
Agree with Danny for me it was an awful fame for him, actually I was surprised mou didn't change him at half time. He needs minutes but yesterday was really bad.



21 Nov 2018 14:13:14
Few of our Ex-United players have been doing pretty well for their new clubs, i feel sometimes we've been extremely impatient
after buying young talents. Why can't we just loan them for a season or so, like many clubs do (chelsea for eg. ) .
The likes of Depay, Zaha, M. Keane, Brady etc. would have come back stronger and would have help us in some way or the other.

1.) 21 Nov 2018 15:16:37
Brady? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

2.) 21 Nov 2018 15:32:25
@moonrinho, you missed the point there buddy :)

Although i always thought that Brady is a tidy player.

3.) 21 Nov 2018 17:33:28
Have to agree, I also wish we utilised the buy back clause better. I know it’s not widely understood but it does give some advantage in a transfer.

4.) 21 Nov 2018 18:41:29
Its about properly scouting players. Not just their on pitch abilities, but their attitudes and off pitch activities. We have wasted a lot of money on mostly good players. But ones who are not suited to either our club, our league, our country or our current playing style.

That's why when they move to a club better suited to getting the best out of them they look better players. In all likelihood if we did resign them then they would likely suffer much the same problems again.

We do have a player in our squad who left and was brought back at a huge cost in Pogba. He is a clearly hugely talented player, yet its not quite working out for us. The same issues that lead to him leaving are still holding him back now. Maybe we will never see the best of Pogba, but he does highlight that going back often doesn't work.

5.) 21 Nov 2018 20:51:00
Shappy, Pogba is rubbish and Utd were had for mugs. Potential potential ya de ya de ya. There is no 'best' of Pogba; this is it. You should get your head round that and stop hopeing for something that isn't going to happen.

6.) 21 Nov 2018 21:51:40
Mancman, I thinking you have misunderstood my post. My point is we shouldn't resign players as they failed first time with us for good reason. I then used Pogba as a case study to back up my point. I'm not expecting Pogba to be a success with us.

7.) 21 Nov 2018 23:05:04
Yeah what's he ever won. oh hold on! .

8.) 22 Nov 2018 08:59:15
Pogba anyways is our best player atm, we saw what happened when he wasn't playing against City.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 18:10:11
My apologies Shappy but you say he is a "clearly hugely talented player" and I am disagreeing with you because I don't think he is.

Tbvh, Pereira doesn't have that physical attribute in his game which we need for a CDM, his best position is #10 and hence does not fit in Jose's system.

Mitchell can be a good backup option but would definitely not be my first choice Lb.

Also i would not rush any of the young academy lads in the squad, would loan them for a season or two.
