I am already seeing people moaning about the management decision before he has even taken a training session which worries me, this league season is pretty much a write off I think we all agree on that so let's try a few things and see what happens, get behind the club legends that are in charge of the club and hope they get the players playing how we want them to.

If not then we rebuild with a whole new fresh start in the summer. I tell you one thing, I am looking forward to Saturday and Boxing Day much more than I was 3 days ago, and that's not just because I found out my Aunt isn't coming for Christmas dinner this year!

Agreed GDS2, there is a little feel good factor from appointing a club favourite, and generally lifting the cloud. I don't think everything was Jose;s fault and fans need to understand we are a long way from where we want to be, but a lift in mood might be the first step. I hope everyone gets behind Ole and the players now and has some patience and acceptance that we won't be suddenly a great team.
And finally a big thanks to the Ed's especially Ed002 who give us the best information you can find anywhere, and put up with all the nonsense, in mostly good humour.


2.) 20 Dec 2018 15:03:06
It's just baffling GDS, nothing more I'd love than to see OGS smash it because as a fan nothing would please me more.

But I just see it as another time where ed woodward has tricked fans. There are a lot of issues that we are messing up pn, so let's throw a club legend at the job and the fans will love it.

Nothing against OGS, just the disappointment of seeing yet another ridiculous play by the men in charge.


3.) 20 Dec 2018 15:47:49
You must admit gds it does seem a peculiar appointment, I will obviously get behind him and the team it seemed a bit crazy to me .

I saw a post somewhere yesterday that said we would all be pissing ourselves laughing if city sacked pep and bought kinkladze in and I suppose it's not that far from the truth.


4.) 20 Dec 2018 15:57:16
kinkladze? What a awful comparison, i'm not fussed about ole taking over but kinkladze is that the best you could do.


5.) 20 Dec 2018 16:12:48
If Pep was in 6th place, had been an absolute nightmare, sucked all the fun out of the game and the club needed a complete overhaul with new technical director and manager in the summer and a bit of time to sort it out and they decided to spend that time with a club legend in charge I would probably understand it just like I understand this. Kinkladze has no management experience so not exactly like for like.

Wasn't Guardiola a Barcelona legend who managed the reserve team before getting the main job? OGS has more similarities to him than Kinkladze I would say.

He wouldn't have been my choice, but Jose was my choice so what do I know? I would have loved to see Kieran McKenna have a go and I am glad he is sticking around, I would love to know what frustrations he had with Jose and whether anything him and Carrick did was listened to. The McKenna under 18 team was great to watch, exciting and fun, the complete opposite of this season. I actually look at OGS with the 3 behind him and think we could be in for a fun 6 months. If not then nothing ventured and the club will have had time to get the right setup in the summer.


6.) 20 Dec 2018 16:23:17
The point of the interim manager is to give the club time to get things right for the long term. Not just go for a quick fix. I think there will be a good response to Ole. He is a club legend, and he will be positive in his demeanor and his tactics. Looking forward to Saturday.


7.) 20 Dec 2018 16:51:04
Spot on GDS. I think we just need to get over the ole signing and just try and enjoy our football again. People need to stop reading into it so much. It seems we will go all out for Poch in the summer so this is a great opportunity for ole to unite, harmonise and lift the dressing room. It is also an opportunity for the players to express themselves a bit more and go out and enjoy their football and entertain the fans. With Phelan there to provide some much needed nous and experience, I believe we are in safe hands. Add McKenna and Carrick and we have a lovely blend of youthfulness and experience. Add to that ole who bleeds united, we now finally have someone who is ‘one of our own’ that many fans have been craving.

Instead of moaning I think we should be relieved Jose is gone. Most fans wanted it and they have their wish. We haven’t rushed into signing someone just because they are available. It seems we might just have a plan for once. Can’t we just get behind ole and see what happens? You never know he might just surprise a few. Even if he does great he is only staying for a while and that’s fine. I don’t see any issues with that. And with a much happier and confident squad, fingers crossed we have Poch walking through the door in the summer raring to go. Personally I’m very excited and just cannot see what the fuss is about tbh.


8.) 20 Dec 2018 16:51:12
Too many people missing the point that OGS is temorary because carrick has no licene to coach for more than a 12 week period. We are aslo looking at a DOF to come in. How could Blanc or ZZ come in at such short notice and how would that be good?

The names been thrown about. ZZ, Blanc, Poch are bound to be approached or interviewed (where applicable) in the coming weeks and months in a measured and professional manner we would hope .

Also I read yesterday another journo saying input from Carrick and McKenna has been generally ignored by JM (who knows if that's true) so let's see if Ogs/ Phelan/ Carrick/ mckenna and Butt to an extent can get us on an even keel again. Playing football.


9.) 20 Dec 2018 16:59:03
Sorry fzz maybe I should have used shaun goater.

I am not professing to know anything either gds, I don't and I also thought jose would win the lot with us .

Maybe all the optimism and joy have been knocked out of me the last couple of months I'm just not looking forward to seeing a guy I've always admired get absolute pelters from the fans or the press if things go awry.


10.) 20 Dec 2018 17:27:54
It’s always the case GDS. you just have to go on Twitter and see people writing of ole before we have even kicked a ball. We could appoint pep and people would still complain. I guess that’s the modern fan. You see these fan channels who would much rather stir up controversy and split a fanbase for likes and retweets by taking advantage of our current plight.

I must admit I wasn’t sure about ole as manager. But the more I think of it the more I believe it may turn out to be shrewd move. Bringing in Phelan is so integral as ole has someone with a vast amount of experience and nous. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to unite and harmonise the dressing room whilst getting the players confidence up and enjoying their football again. It also gives us time to restructure the club and really conduct our due diligence in our search for our next manager. It seems Poch is the target which I am buzzing about tbh. He clearly is not attainable so appointing ole as a stop gap is fine for me.

I am buzzing for Saturday’s game, which I have not been for so long. Let’s all pull together and get behind the team because I do feel we will start to see some more exciting football which is in keeping with the United way.


11.) 20 Dec 2018 17:28:10
Don't see the sense in the OGS appointment at all. The wrong guy has gone. Pogba AND Woodward should both have gone before Jose.

If these players wouldn't perform before why suddenly do we think they will now? There is no logic to that.

Pogba is all wrong for United and needs to be gone.

OGS is simply a popular ex-player, a fan favourite, a nice guy. what has he done as a manager at this level. for a club that prides itself on being one of the top 1-2 clubs in the world how can this appointment make sense? In no other line of work would this ever happen, NOWHERE!

All this does is give the club an excuse not to spend in January on what we need. because we don't have the right guy in place for the long term. terrible forward planning yet again, as we stumble from one poor decision to the next.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. same leadership presided over Moyes, LVG, Jose, OGS and now they will suddenly right the ship long term?

I truly hope they make the right appointments for next season. but that's my heart talking because I love watching Manchester United. but my head says this could be a long painful road.

Flying into Manchester from Boston tonight to be home with family in York and Glasgow. not been back in Glasgow for 15 years!

Best for the holidays to all.


12.) 20 Dec 2018 17:29:12
GDS,
I am reasonably happy with OGS and happy to wait and see.
The potential dilemma as I see it is if we see an immediate dramatic improvement do we hail OGS as the conquering hero or do we finally come to terms with having spoiled brats who misuse player power. It will not a black and white situation (never is) but if we believe that it is predominantly the second, how do we feel about keeping them? Who would trade points on the board against the risks of the current nightmare recurring.


13.) 20 Dec 2018 18:50:05
OGS is in management what's wrong with you? its not even close. Give me Stuart Pearce nock nock and you have a deal.


14.) 20 Dec 2018 19:25:47
Nothing wrong with me mate and do you mean knock, knock?


15.) 20 Dec 2018 20:14:47
In other words Stuart Pearce is a ex City player that has managed (see the link) .


16.) 20 Dec 2018 21:20:14
OGS was brought in as interim manager till the end of the season. I don't see the issue with the appointment, can it really get any worse from where we are at this point in time, allardyce and pardew are still available so I think it can. This gives the club 6 months to find and appoint a new manager, at least they are not rushing it and just appointing someone cause they are available. Hopefully by the end of the season we will have a director of football in place and a clear choice who we can the pursue as manager. People wanted change, they have got it and still aren't happy.

Everyone should check out Mason Greenwood's goals at the weekend. He is scoring every week and despite being slightly too young at the moment if he continues to improve the way he has in the last 18 months he will be some player by the age of 20.

Obviously got the people calling for him to be in the team now because he can score past some 15 year olds, but I am happy seeing him grow at the right level, it does seem unfair on them young lads he's playing against though as he is a few levels above, good to see the future is bright in that department, hopefully he stays fit.

GDS2

1.) 13 Nov 2018 08:16:57
Yes, let him play in the reserves now, loan him to lower leagues after may be after 2 years.
Do not rush him into First team.


2.) 13 Nov 2018 19:24:27
Had my eye on Greenwood for some time and wrote on here about him when i learnt he could take free kicks even penalties with either foot. He is close to the age when he either kicks on or stalls, perhaps like what we see from Rashford. It’s that point in a career where the best go forward, like Rooney and Ronaldo and will be too good not to play in the first team. Rashford could still get back on track but Greenwood has potential to be better

Keep your eye on James Garner as well, and look up an interesting article on him in one of the national newspapers last week.

Just in answer to a few posts and Ken below, I don't think a new manager would come in and get us challenging for the title this season but they might allow us to challenge in games against lower teams and not be lucky to be in the top half of the table. The players we have might not be good enough to finish above City and Liverpool but they are good enough to be comfortably top 4 and any excuses to the contrary are nonsense IMO.

Jose came out last night and said 'we don't have many players with intensity', 'we don't have technical quality to build from the back', 'we knew we wouldn't create 20 chances' and best of all 'we thought with 3 or 4 chances we would score and win the game'. What the actual hell is he talking about? How can professional footballers who have all played in teams before that created plenty of chances suddenly not create any chances against an average Spanish team.

He also had 2 players last night who have played for Valencia in Pereira and Mata, both who would have loved to get a game and would have given us 110% against them, Andreas doesn't make the squad and Mata spends 90 minutes warming up hoping to get on and we only make 1 sub despite the fact we are clearly struggling I imagine leaving him gutted.

He just doesn't get it and what he is doing makes zero sense. We saw this same thing happen at Chelsea and unfortunately it is probably going to get worse before it gets better, another season without CL next season for us I think, not that it makes much difference if we play as dreadfully as we did last night, what's the point in being in the competition?

I am known as too positive on here generally and I haven't posted for a bit as I don't like to overreact but I don't think this is an overreaction, the players need to take a long look at themselves but without a change in manager I can't see how this gets better. I really hope it does, but look at our fixtures after Saturday, we could be about 13th by mid November, how bad does it need to get before he goes I wonder?

GDS2

1.) 03 Oct 2018 10:07:47
he has had his time, the dinosaur isn't going to magically change his style.

it is boring and the players look bored playing.

i don't agree with the way the players (some of them) have acted but i was working under a manager like jose the way he is and the way he acts i wouldn't want to play either.

we either stick with him and finish outside of the top4 maybe get a top 6 finish, but the worst is yet to come.

people are banging on about would a new manager make a difference, just look at how hazard is doing under a new manager with confidence and a positive approach.


can anyone really see where we are going to get our next win from.

Newcastle at home Sunday, they haven't won, this will be typical of the way thing are going atm for us and i wouldn't be surprised if we lost the game.


2.) 03 Oct 2018 10:06:39
Good post GDS2.

One hire can change everything, it just depends on who that is and who does the hiring.

We need to shift out a few players though irrespective as there are rotten apples.

I just wish people had listened 3-4 months into he tenure when it was patently obvious (to me) this was where we were heading. The procrastination, defending of the indefensible has also contributed to Jose staying in this job and corrupting matters far longer than he should have been. Such a shame he followed LVG and not SAF as we would have been far more decisive.

I take little satisfaction in the 'I told you so' lines as it has been a truly awful couple of years as a Utd fan and it's easy to be an armchair expert. But we are just as bad now as we were by the Autumn of his first year in charge, we have lost so much ground expecting a leopard to change his spots. We hired the failed Chelsea manager, not the Jose of years gone by - just wish the club would do something about it rather than penny pinching. Can't help but feel that Woody is in a bit of bother as extending Jose's contract in January was criminal considering how we were playing.

We need to do the needful now and salvage this season, bring in some energy and positive forward thinking players, get rid of the hype players and get back to our roots. It would be so good to have a team back that plays the game the appropriate Utd way and look like we can go places. Patience with the right man is vital, but with the wrong man it is dangerous!


3.) 03 Oct 2018 10:40:55
Beast,

Oh yeah you really hate to say I told you so, course you do. If you are negative the whole time you'll be correct eventually. You have to give a manager time and in his first season we won trophies, last season we came 2nd in two competitions and still played some good stuff, especially early on. It has not been a dreadful 2.5 years, it is this season where the major issues have started and he will certainly leave us with a better squad than he started with.


4.) 03 Oct 2018 10:49:20
beast who would you hire if given the choice?

zidane is the fav but is he the answer.

do we go for the younger manager or go for a NAME yet again.


5.) 03 Oct 2018 10:53:46
I wasn't negative the whole time. I changed after I realised the first few wins were flattering the performances. I have remained consistent since then - just as our overall performance levels have remained consistently bad (one or two random good performances admittedly) .

Hard to say somebody was correct when you have argued so vehemently against them. I understand but don't beat yourself up mate. Hopefully the third time I say something you will listen a bit more rather than jumping automatically onto the other side of the fence. You never know the next hire could be a good one.


6.) 03 Oct 2018 10:55:55
Fully agree with both posts GDS2.


7.) 03 Oct 2018 11:18:03
I don't think he'll get sacked until top 4 is mathematically impossible, same as with Moyes. However if results continue to slump as they are and we drop down the table then it could happen sooner rather than later. I have zero confidence in Woodward though to make the right appointment.


8.) 03 Oct 2018 11:20:56
Sorry, you weren't negative the whole time, just after 3 games of his first season, I apologise.

I haven't argued against you, I have just had a different opinion and still agree with my opinion over the past couple of years. I would like to hope that next time we have a new manager you give him more than a few games before coming on here spouting how we should all listen to you as you know best, but I won't hold my breath.


9.) 03 Oct 2018 11:21:55
Also Beast I don't think anyone was expecting him to change his spots. He failed at Chelsea because he lost the dressing room but that same dressing room also did the same thing with Conte and AVB so in fairness events at Chelsea with Jose never looked like an isolated incident. What we did expect with Jose was someone who could motivate this team and compete. For several reasons its not worked. But the solution isn't as easy as changing managers. This squad needs a good clear out. Too many either aren't good enough or are just bad eggs. And Woodward needs removing from decision making on the football side.


10.) 03 Oct 2018 11:31:11
Agreed GDS. Whoever takes over needs patience. Its going to take a lot to turn this around. He'll need to rebuild morale, ship players out, impose his own style and philosophy, bring in and integrate his own players. I think the first few months will be very hard to watch but given time it'll turn around. Problem is that by September a section of fans will have already turned and be complaining nothing has changed.


11.) 03 Oct 2018 12:27:55
So long as we hire a young, intelligent, hungry manager that wants to play the game the Utd way they will have my support. Pick players on form rather than reputation, build an identity, try new things if what they are doing isn't working. Build the team into a team, rather than a glorified International team with other priorities. Somebody that is proud to manage the club and commits 100% rather than half in/ half out or thinking they are above it all. Somebody that can accept they make mistakes and LEARN FROM THEM.

Ultimately it didn't take a rocket scientist to realise by Xmas of his first season that Jose was not the answer, just like LVG wasn't. But out fans need to start being analytical and realise that the manager isn't the club, bad decisions can be made, people can be bad fits and most importantly loyalty is earned not gifted. If the next guy is all the things above they will have my support so long as we look like we are going in the right direction.

We need to bring enjoyment back to the club, it's not fun being a Utd fan at the minute, it can't be fun for the players or the manager. They are compensated heavily to deliver and it isn't working - make the change now, we can still get top 4 and have a good run in the CL. If we dither then the job gets harder and harder for the next guy.

Without interviewing the person I wouldn't like to put a man forward, but I do like Jardim (he is doing badly this season but his squad has been decimated), I like how Lyon play, I like how Sassuolo play very much their manager is Roberto De Zerbi, he sets his team out the right way for me and would be an outside punt, unknown quantity really but we need fresh ideas and they certainly play the game the way Utd should play.


12.) 03 Oct 2018 13:45:35
no one would be calling for jose if the football BRAND he played was positive.

3 years later and we still look like a bunch of guys that have been picked from the park.

forget about transfers its his job as a coach to get the best out of his players and he isn't doing that.


13.) 03 Oct 2018 15:09:26
Agreed bolger and beast. People seem to think we want our managers to fail. The complete opposite is true. I yearn for a young manager to come in and be close to his players and play in a positive and aggressive manner. A young tommy Docherty will be great. In fact I'll take docherty now over Mourinho 😅.
And Woodward, who is being portrayed as a financial genius, extended Mourinho's contract in January for no reason whatsoever. If he was working for me, I'll be questioning his decision making and sacking him as well as Mourinho.


14.) 03 Oct 2018 17:23:33
I yearn for the day woody is sacked.

Hear hear Jose.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 09:42:14
I agree it is difficult to believe but it's mourinho's negativity in public that causes that. He never focuses on anything positive and always has something negative to say so Jose as your say we finished 2nd last year cheer up!

not entertaining though. i watch football to be entertained.

His press conference today was pretty positive so you probably won’t see much about it.


5.) 09 Aug 2018 10:29:00
If you want entertainment youshould watch com3dy shows. Football is more of a business then entertainment now a days.

Do you think Real Madrid played entertaining football under Zidane, they just cared about winning and didn't really bother about how entertaining they are.


6.) 09 Aug 2018 10:48:32
sorry singh but i don't agree! i don't pay to go watch business! fans want entertainment, i struggle to watch a full match these days as it's boring simple as that. does it make me less of a fan, i don't think so. i 've never been a fan who needs a shiny new player every ten minutes so i don't really care about signings in all honesty, but i do care what i see on the pitch and it's crap.


 

 

06 Aug 2018 13:05:40
Bit of a strange one at the moment with Jose's comments and people seemingly turning against him based on a few dodgy performances with half a team out in pre season.

It seems from listening to Jose that he agrees with most of us on here, we need a centre back, a left back and a right winger, or at least 2 of these, and as it stands the club are failing to provide that. I think we all recognise that with for example Alderweireld and Pulisic in this team we suddenly look a hell of a different prospect, so we actually agree with Jose on my many things.

A lot of people seem to be slagging Jose off for being negative about the exact things they are also negative about, if Jose was writing on here about the squad I think he would be saying the same as the majority of people about where we are short. He is a winner and wants to win the league as do all of us and he recognises along with all of us that this squad is 2 or 3 players shorts of being able to challenge.

Let's hope we get these players in because I think there will be a huge turn on here into positivity and in turn Jose will feel the same way as us, that we then have a chance of challenging.

Over to you Ed.

Top post and a very sensible one.


3.) 06 Aug 2018 13:37:48
Tbf he got a winger (even though he's looked so much better up front in a two man partnership) in january.

And he got two centre backs in two seasons.

He hasn't come out and said why they aren't sufficient. He just wants the club to spend tonnes of money on older players.

The club are well within their rights to not trust jose considering he hasn't stayed longer at a club than three seasons and it is know he's not happy in manchester.


4.) 06 Aug 2018 13:48:15
Jose is a master at turning football matches into wars of attrition. He prefers warrior's to footballers. When it works he's a genius when it doesn't he's anti football and the enemy of the game.

He's a sticking plaster on an arterial bleed. His tenure was only ever going to be short term and he's not been given the tools to succeed. No point in moaning about it now we all knew what was coming when he was appointed.

In my opinion we should trust in the traditions of the Club and follow the model that has brought us a clear formula for success. We need a young, hungry manager that will promote and encourage youth. Has a philosophy and a commitment to playing entertaining, attractive and attacking football. We as fans also have a responsibility to show patience and restraint once someone delivers this philosophy even if success is not achieved instantaneously. I've heard a lot of posters say they'd rather us play attacking, caviller football even if we don't win but I'm always sceptical of these posts.

In my opinion more pressure must be applied to the board to demonstrate a commitment to ensure that the team challenges for the top honours and does not settle into a world where success on the field is LESS important than its success off it. The money is generated by the Club, its history, its tradition and its fans and not by the Glazers. They haven't invested a penny of their own money and let's not forget the massive debt they have saddled on the Club and the amount of money required to service it. As far as I'm concerned almost all of the money generated by the Club should be invested back into the team. Let's not kid ourselves the teams that spend the most money predominantly enjoy the most success. Of course there are exceptions to every rule but this is an inescapable fact. Liverpool with a stadium and turnover half the size have invested significantly more than us in this window. How can this be allowed to happen when our team is still in need of significant investment ourselves? Yes money can be wasted and often is by ALL Clubs but this a poor excuse for not spending it.

In my opinion the problem lies squarely with the Glazers and not the manager. Ok we might not like his style or his methods but I have absolutely no doubt that he wants us to WIN. I'm not sure the same can be said for our owners and the only place they seemingly want to win is on the stock exchange.


5.) 06 Aug 2018 13:42:57
"I am confident I will get one [new player], but I think two I am not going to get - which is not a drama,  in every pre-season it happens the same with every club which is the manager wants more. It's our nature, you always want more for your team but then club decisions are different and normally you don't get what you want which happened during all my career.

"So if I get one player until the end of the market, that's fine. "

Doesn't seem that bothered to me, this is real life not football manager .
It's the fans who want us to buy 6 first team players every summer for 500mil and then get upset when we don't.


6.) 06 Aug 2018 14:39:02
Dlib. Totally agree.
Gds, good post but you mentioned we need a centre back, a left back and a right winger, then you wrote "or at least two of these". Why? We are Manchester United, the most successful club financially. So why do we have to settle for 2 out 3? At the moment, we haven't got any of them. And that is irresponsible and unacceptable behaviour by our owners and the Woodward plonker.
But i don't think they give a toss. And that's the worrying part. I have had two season tickets since 1969, but i have not renewed them this year, i have passed them on to a friend. I love the club as much as i love my family, but with the present owners, I've lost my respect for the club and i shall not be lining their greedy pockets with any if my hard earned money.


7.) 06 Aug 2018 14:47:43
AAA,

I said at least 2 because I’m not sure if Jose is going to give Shaw and Young another season, Young never let's us down and this would be Shaw’s last chance. Also, just because we are Man United doesn’t mean teams will just sell to us. You’d be first to moan if we overpaid.

Shame you’ve felt the need to lose your season ticket, I’ll be there on Friday supporting the lads and I can’t wait, maybe I’m a mug but couldn’t dream of giving up my ticket, will be going through thick and thin as always, I hope you regrets you decision and I’m sure you hope you do as well.

Good post GDS2 and it puts matters into a different light.

People are disappointed with Jose for a number of reasons. For me (and most, I think), it's the style of play. It's almost as if he's on strike with the team setup because he isn't getting his way - which we've seen before. I do totally agree with the positions that we need to fill and RW has been a priority for a few years now. Hopefully he gets his way and things change.

Schnauzer,

People are saying to rest pretty much the full midfield and other players as well which is madness in my opinion.

Maybe go 3-0 up and ease off / remove a few key players, but to lose the momentum or risk a defeat at this stage would be madness, it's not like we are playing 3 games a week, we have almost a full weeks break before the Fulham game and 6 days after the PSG game.

I'm a little confused why you think our players can't play Saturday morning and then Tuesday night? They will have had 6 days rest and will get another 6 days after the PSG game, 3 games in the next 14 days is hardly going to kill the poor things.

Greenwood is an out and out striker and not ready for the first team, did you mean someone else?

I get the feeling if he was called Lingardinho people might respect him a bit more. He is one of the first names on the team sheet in big games, especially big away games, a link between the midfield and attack with seemingly unlimited energy. There are better players out there than Jesse but he gets my vote over a lot of them.

Not saying Brooks isn't a good player, I am sure he is, looks a decent prospect, but at the moment he is nowhere near the level of Lingard never mind better.

Singh,

I know, but £50m? I appreciate the game has changed and the prices of players has increased but that is utterly ridiculous.

I’m sorry, I thought for a second there you suggested we put Pogba man marking somebody? I couldn’t think of a worse idea.

DGS,

I know you have tried to copy my name but you certainly don't share my optimistic view of life. Nobody likes losing but you can lose games of football without losing your head and talking nonsense.

You know how it works Tony, all amazing and the best ever if we win, all players need selling if we lose.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn't it, nothing to suggest putting Sanchez up front would have made any difference to what we ended up doing. If he had changed the midfield and we had conceded again people would have said he made a mistake changing the midfield, he can't get everything right and maybe he will learn from it, you learn more from defeats after all, mainly who the fans are who overreact to everything.

Danny,

I kind of agree but not sure Ole had anything else available to him to stop that from happening. We all know we have a good first 11, maybe 12 but after that we aren't as strong. Perhaps Ole knew the issue just didn't have the personnel to cope with it, you can't plan for losing both of your wide players unfortunately.
