I’m not undermining the role of any manager by what I’m about to say, if anything it’s quite the opposite. Tactics is obviously vital in football, but ultimately what makes a good manager is the way he manages players and staff.

You could be the greatest tactician but if you have zero rapport with the players it’s just not going to work. What Ole has done is taken clearly talented players to play to the fullest potential, to make everything optimistic but most importantly he’s taken the modern football ego, the ego so on display during Jose’s rein and made them (dare I say it ) almost humble hardworking footballers who now seem happy and grafters more interested in the team than themselves.

I don’t believe anyone thinks that OGS is the greatest manager to grace this earth, he’s a down to earth guy, loves the club and has installed that man united mentality.

I’m astonished by how well he’s done. I watched the game earlier and although there is always room for improvement, I just couldn’t believe how much talent we actually have on the pitch . I don’t think I’ve appreciated the quality of players we’ve had for a very long time.

I’m not going to single out names, but every single player is a better version of themselves since Ole took the reins. I personally think that whether he stays or goes, he has become the much needed bridge between Alex Ferguson and our future. Absolutely delighted to feel like our club again.

Saw G. Neville interview Ole before the match over the weekend and asked what the secret was over the last 6 weeks to transforming Utd having us play such good football. Ole replied that there is no secret just
1. You have to enjoy yourself
2. You have to have good players who can express themselves.
After these 2 then come the tactical bits but play forward, run forward, be clinical in front of goal, no secrets just work hard and stay together as a team.

A few 'would you rather' posts popping up, mostly to do with playing well but losing or playing badly but winning.

How can you play badly and win trophies? it just doesn’t happen. I used to love the contrasting styles of Italy and Brazil in World Cups.

Why doesn’t anyone give any credit to playing defensively and solidly anymore? It’s not easy to organise teams and there is definitely an art form to playing that way, granted it might not be as exciting to watch. Mayweather will go down as one of the greatest boxers of all time but he was really boring to watch, he just didn’t get hit.

If everyone adopted the same style playing football then ultimately that would become boring too, I love all the styles and appreciate them for what we are. Long ball tactics, rough and tumble, tikka takka, ultimate football, park the bus, counter attack etc.

I guess as a united fan, do miss the style we used to play, but it was never like the current city side for example, one we seem to want to emulate now. we had a style of our own and that’s the beauty of football .

Great post mate.


2.) 08 Mar 2018 14:31:04
Great post last man.


3.) 08 Mar 2018 14:44:05
Well said LSMA.
At the end Of the day, people remember winners and not too much of those who play well and beautiful. Hence yeah to a certain extent I’d rather we win and be boring than be like scousers playing beautiful and not win anything for years. Of course if we can play beautiful and yet win that’ll be ultimate. 😉.

Imagine if you won and played well tho.


5.) 08 Mar 2018 23:48:54
We're not that great defensively. 3 holding midfielders and an unbelievable goalkeeper have papered over the cracks. Also the frustration is that we have top notch attacking players but the lack of a constructive approach means we have reverted to a damage limitation exercise while hoping for individual brilliance to bail us out. Meanwhile spurs and liverpool are getting similar results but play a much better brand of football. My hope is that the glaring issues with our defence and CM are addressed this summer and Mourinho adopts a better approach, but I'm not sure how realistic that is.


6.) 09 Mar 2018 02:12:23
Always imagining Jred.
Bur ball is round so also depends on who we playing. I am quite sure most logical supporters would want win before beautiful football. That said, I’d not want to become a scousers supporter having not won anything for so long than be a ManUtd supporter having won silverware last season. So what if it is Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck trophy? I’d rather that than an empty season shelf.
But yes if we win and also beautiful, like I said it would be the ultimate.

Out of curiosity.
if we could/ should only keep 5 players out of the current squad to rebuild performance and attitude for next season, which 5 would you all pick?
I’m struggling to pick 5, that’s not great is it .

Lastsanemanalive

1.) 25 Apr 2019 13:50:11
Lukaku, Fred, Dalot, Lindelof, Rashford.


2.) 25 Apr 2019 13:51:48
McTominay - embodies what our club should be.

Dalot - Think he has an exciting future.

Rashford - Talented and one of our own.

Martial - Plenty of ability and talent and think his problem is condidence.

Pogba - We won't be able to attract any player who is better than him and I think he is good enough to build a team around.


3.) 25 Apr 2019 13:53:09
Lindelof, dalot, rash, Shaw, I'd say right boys I'm giving you one more season to prove yourself, I can't make a case for any of the others.


4.) 25 Apr 2019 14:01:41
Shaw, lindelof, rashford, romero and ddg ( if he wants to stay)

Mctominay and dalot are good potentials.

Pogba thinks he is above the club and the rest of the players are just not good enough unfortunately.


5.) 25 Apr 2019 14:15:26
5 I'd keep:
Lindelof
Dalot
Shaw
McTominay
Rashford

First 5 I'd sell:
Rojo
Bailly
Young
Pogba
Sanchez.


6.) 25 Apr 2019 14:20:07
Shaw, Lindelöf, Dalot, Rashford and Romero. I’d like to add Pogba and De Gea because they are the only world class players, albeit not in good form this season, but their heads are else where so it’s time to cash in.

McTominay, Smalling and Lukaku would also be worth keeping as squad players. The rest I couldn’t care less if they never pull on a United shirt again.


7.) 25 Apr 2019 14:59:57
Put them all up for sale . Just not good enough i'm afraid. Maybe keep Rashford and Herrera 🤣🤣.


8.) 25 Apr 2019 15:04:27
I would definitely keep Romero, Lindelof, Dalot, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Lingard, Rashford and Lukaku.

Not all would be first choice, but all seem to have the right attitude and all have enough talent if used correctly.

Smalling, Andreas Pereira and Martial should probably be kept as well. At least for the short term.

The rest can leave without a second glance.

We do have some excellent young players who could step up in the next year or two. Greenwood and Tuanzebe are probably ready for next season, Gomes, Chong and Garner possibly the season after.


9.) 25 Apr 2019 16:56:08
Rashford, Lindelof, Shaw, Dalot, McTominay. Youthful, talented, and they have the right attitude, for the most part.


10.) 25 Apr 2019 18:25:11
I change my response, Lukaku can also go. I’ve just seen him flirting with Serie A again. If he wants out, get rid and replace with someone who can control a ball.


11.) 25 Apr 2019 18:44:09
Henderson, Tuanzebe, Garner, Gomes and Greenwood. English CORE HAHA

To be honest if you are looking for 5 players that may be in the starting lineup:

DDG if he signs or Romero
Lindelof
Shaw
Rashford

That is only 4 but that could arguably be the only 4. We are looking at a RB, CB, CM AM (another if Pogba leaves) and a RW/ Forward and potentially a LW if Sanchez leaves.

Dalot, McTominay, Fred, Lingard will all be around and useful squad players unless they improve.

Watched the Swansea game live but only just got the chance to watch match of the day. what can I say, the moment it gets back into the studio 3 cringeworthy awful pundits say Nothing positive whatsoever about uniteds start to the season.
Instead choose to pick faults and spend the entire time doing so too .
Nothing remotely positive to say at all?!

Lastsanemanalive

1.) 21 Aug 2017 10:49:56
That did make me laugh, Jenas just picked fault with the whole performance 😂.


2.) 21 Aug 2017 11:12:39
Thought they had a good point about not using width of the pitch tho.


3.) 21 Aug 2017 13:16:02
Wallace,

They did but possibly didn't need to be the first point they made, you would have thought we lost!


 

 

23 Jul 2017 22:54:22
Jesus!
Just watched the first goal against Real Madrid!
Martial! Unbelievable skill, couldn't believe what I was watching . Amazing dribbling and skill, just too good .

Lastsanemanalive

1.) 23 Jul 2017 23:00:41
We all know what he can do he just needs to do it a lot more perhaps last seasons personal issues affected him but looking at the tour videos/ pictures he looks much happier so hopefully he'll kick on next season.

But as you said his assist was class.


2.) 23 Jul 2017 23:02:09
Hopefully will give him some confidence, which I'm sure in Jose's mind is what he's lacking.
He hasn't changed his style, it just came off this time. It's easy to see the potential of this kid. Really hoping this is the time he steps up and meets that potential. more to come please.


 

 

17 Mar 2017 17:11:21
Roy Keane has gone too far .
Always be a respected player and leader for the team I love but ultimately what he has been saying of late is totally unnecessary. if you truly have uniteds interests at heart you should know that going in that hard on a manager that's only had half a season and won a trophy already is ridiculous. Clearly he just doesn't like Jose . Totally unprofessional and a bit of a **** move .

Lastsanemanalive

1.) 17 Mar 2017 17:54:21
I found his comments funny actually, a man who for lack of better words got kicked out of the club for moaning about his team mates in a tv interview, the man who walked out/ kicked out of his country's world cup campaign because he again pitched a fit to the media because he did not get training the way he wanted it for the team. Now the same guy moans about other guy moaning about fixture list. No irony there i suppose.


2.) 17 Mar 2017 19:11:01
Roy Keane is one of the best if not the best captain/ midfielder I have ever seen.

He is also a massive arse hole.

{Ed025's Note - spot on deano mate..


3.) 17 Mar 2017 19:39:17
Cracking player and a legend, however I find him quite bitter these days, a guy that not grown with the times and still stuck in the olden days, the only United player I didn't enjoy reading his autobiography.


4.) 17 Mar 2017 20:25:28
You're classed as a scallywag now if you speak the truth. i love when he is on tv cause you know your going to get an honest assessment, not like a lot of other pundits who can't be seen to be honest on tv, political correctness bull.


5.) 17 Mar 2017 21:39:26
Jose must understand that this time of year the fixture list gets a bit bigger if your left in a few cup competitions. after all he was at a few big clubs in Europe.
So stop moaning about it and get on with it, is he trying to deflect from the fact we are in 6th, now I don't want Jose out or anything like that hope he stays for 5 years and wins trophies. Now special one cop on and stop moaning.


6.) 17 Mar 2017 22:30:35
He isn't honest leahy he is just a miserable sod for the sake of it.
I think we confuse being a good footballer with being a good person and I personally think the two are exclusive Keane could start an argument in an empty room the blokes soap box must be made out of stone for the amount of use it gets.


7.) 17 Mar 2017 23:43:58
Dean he is an honest man, and if he is working in football whether player or pundit he gives 100%, straight out no waffling no social media waffle or anything like that, just good honest work, he may ruffle a few feathers along the way, I don't know if you are old enough to remember him playing for United but if you do you will know he was a born winner.

Now outside of football you couldn't meet a nicer bloke, very funny dry humour, I've met him a few times, a sound bloke if you approach him properly,
He gives a lot to charity I know of one children's hospital in ireland he looks after and he doesn't go around talking about it or looking for praise either, and he also works with guide dogs for the blind.

If I had my way there would be a statue of him in cork airport that day you are now entering Roy Keane country.


8.) 18 Mar 2017 04:39:15
Dean, I sort of agree with you but having read his books I started to understand him a little more. He is both a complex and simple individual, I'm not sure he was every comfortable being famous and yet he was the captain of the the biggest team in the country for many years. I'm not sure why he feels the need to be so "refreshingly honest" all the time.


9.) 18 Mar 2017 07:33:08
I've never met him so I can only go with what I see of him on television and that is the fact he rarely has a good word for anyone .
I have read the Keane book but years ago I may re read it.


10.) 18 Mar 2017 07:59:38
God, I thought he was just being honest.

I find myself agreeing with most of what he says.

His character aside. I think he is a cracking pundit because he says it how he sees it.


11.) 18 Mar 2017 07:48:46
Great Captain, club legend but a nutcase.

It's a mark of how elite the club is seen my ex players.


Look at the ex Utd pundits - digging out the team, constructive criticism in some cases but always judged against their own high standards.

Look at the ex Liverpool pundits (exc Jamie Carragher) seem to blindly defend the team and make excuses.

I like Keano, Scholes, Nevilles reminding everyone about what it means to be at Man Utd.

Also Fergie would be going nuts about the current fixtures.


 

 

09 Mar 2017 22:20:12
Balance . Views, opinions, results and current situation.
Personally I think where we are at is about right .
We've won a cup final, looks like we will secure the next round of europa with a real chance of winning.
The fa cup is probably going to go to Chelsea but you never know and 4th position in the league is also a 50/ 50 at least.
Zlatan . really cannot understand any negative feeling towards him. The goal tally will speak for itself and the contribution of a striker should almost (imo) be based soley on goals because that's what he's there for .
We are far from perfect and have players that aren't quite united standard and a few that are underperforming but overall we are moving in the right direction so I'm fairly calm and reasonably satasfied with what we have achieved, what we will achieve and what is expected from this team this season.

Team spirit for me .
We seem to have a great togetherness and belief .
Only city and spurs have that along with ourselves .
May seem like a stupid point but it does make a huge difference.

Bale . He is devastating at times and arguably in the top 6 on best form .
Also I want that big name statement. We should have some of the biggest names in world football at our club shouldn't we?
I want us to sign Griezmann next year too .
