Ryan Giggs future - supposedly. "Manchester United are understood to have offered Ryan Giggs a role designed to bridge the gap between their first team and Under 21s.
I think while appearing to be a backward step for this years assistant manager (I think that was in name only and Giggs had little input), it would provide him the opportunity to hone his coaching, and team mannigerial skills. While still being close to Mourinho to learn from him as he has from SAF, and LVG.
It also provides an opportunity to get very close to the Man Utd youngsters who wou, d become his lifeblood if he is to ultimately get the opportunity he so dearly wants.
What do you all think?

I would say this is the right move as long as Warren Joyce is leaving on his own terms. If we were to force Joyce out to make way for Giggs then I wouldn't be as happy.

Hopefully Giggs can show what he is made of now with his own squad.

2.) 26 May 2016 09:31:29
If Warren Joyce leaves I'd give Giggs the chance to show his credentials there if he doesn't want to leave United, fair play to Joyce wanting to go prove himself elsewhere, for me that would put Joyce ahead of Giggs in terms of managing United in the future.

Tuanzebe nearing a return for Aston Villa. Possibly after the International break.
I hope he has a good run to the end of the season to set himself up for a return to Old Trafford next season.




19 Feb 2019 03:58:26
This is the first season since 1985/ 86 that the Reds have completed a hat-trick of London wins over Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea away from home in a single campaign.




18 Feb 2019 23:38:51
That was a good performance and great response by the team last night. Everyone was watching how the players an Ole would respond to the PSG result. There's quite a bit of pressure in that. This squad, which has had a few accusations aimed at it in the last few months showed I think that they have turned a corner.
Well done, good result. 3rd away game in the capital against a top 6 team and third win. 6 goals for, 1 against. In those games!


1.) 19 Feb 2019 19:40:54
Prm. this squad (with others) has finished in top 4 twice in 5 years the accusations they have faced are legitimate. They have massively underperformed For years .
They will get plaudits they deserve when they perform when they don't they will be called out i see nothing wrong In that.

Reports are coming out that Ed has appointed OGS full time manager but no announcement until the end of the season.
Possibly paper talk, possibly not.
Nothing on the United website though.


{Ed002's Note - Well if there is not going to be an announcement until the end of the season it should not surprise you there is nothing on the club web site.}

1.) 17 Feb 2019 13:57:50

My penneth, “Reports” will likely be made up by journalists so they can ask the club to comment/ deny the rumours. Gives something to write about. Ole has had some good results but I really don’t think a decision should be made yet. Imagine losing our next two games and/ or having a bad run. The club have jumped into poor decisions previously and such a decision would demonstrate the paucity of our whole decision making structure. Why bother with a DOF if Woodward just makes snap decisions?

Wait would be my advice and judge later. I still think Pochettino with a DOF is the best bet at the moment but won’t rule Ole out if he does something spectacular. I appreciate there is an outpouring of affection for one of our own. I would add that if there is to be a change of owner a decision now would be foolish.

Ed002 😂.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 15:31:07
Thanks ED, as always.

4.) 18 Feb 2019 00:23:00
Agreed here, i reckon sentiment has a big say in opinions - i think Ole is a good lad ("about the place" as they say) and has picked up the mood. However on considered opinion, (i initially backed Ole btw) i think poch is the better choice to take forward. He has absolutely proven what we need - bring young/ unproven players along, blend home grown along with "right fit" purchases - not world record signings for show. We know who has to go and who our best players are - it seems obvious. As said by others above unless something utterly remarkable happens (ownership change, champs lge win ha) I think a DOF and Poch would be absolutely right. This time next year people may say "we should have got Ole at the time". don't worry, he'll be at Molde or Southampton or Stoke etc and ripe for a pay day at that time. His philosophy will likely be similar. maybe Paul Scholes/ Ryan Giggs could do a similar job by then who knows. Anyway, there's a rebuild as we really deep down all knew needed. I like Ole, he is a legend and i'd love to see him shove my opinion down my throat - really i would. However here we are struggling for 4th? Give me a proven builder to get us back to where we should rightfully be given the apparent "Brand" we now follow.

5.) 18 Feb 2019 12:39:17
Most of pochs signings are wrong fit.

6.) 18 Feb 2019 19:05:47
Struggling for 4th is a terrific achievement in a very short time given how far adrift we were when OGS took over. Also do you not remember how many teams were on our shoulders threatening to turn us into a definite and mid table "also ran" team? How short memory is.
Ole did not start with a level playing field!

7.) 18 Feb 2019 23:48:16
Theres a rebuild needed or have i missed something here? Given, Ole's a grand lad; even a mighty fourth place will placate some too evidently (the Glazers too one may suspect) . Lots out and some in/ promoted required to solve this huge mess - trust experience for this bit though. Nothing ruled in or out except seeing all options equally . Not a level playing field? Little was expected of him, remember?



10 Feb 2019 18:14:17
Looks like Paul Scholes will finally be announced as Oldham Athletic manager tomorrow (Monday)

Best of luck to Paul.
Should be interesting.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:24:45
If Salford get promoted, won't they be in same league? Bit odd that was allowed.

{Ed002's Note - He is only a minor shareholder an restrictions have been put in place over transfers.}

2.) 10 Feb 2019 18:37:01
Thanks ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 10 Feb 2019 19:16:37
On another note, Jose back to Chelsea ed? 😉.

{Ed002's Note - No, he is heading elsewhere.}

4.) 10 Feb 2019 19:26:31
Would he be Milan bound Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - He has options.}

5.) 10 Feb 2019 19:32:55
Sorry to pester Ed002, is he still seen as a solid manager? His recent failures make his successes seem so long ago, he looks so outdated and out of touch.
Surely he's a gamble for a top side, what sides are interested in the special one.

{Ed002's Note - He is seen as a very good manager but needs the support of the club and board - which he never had at Manchester United.}

6.) 10 Feb 2019 19:41:39
I'm sure he has ed. Will be interesting to see his next move. Chelsea look to be in all kinds of trouble. Sarri was an unusual appointment for me in the first place.

{Ed002's Note - You mean after Zinedine Zidane was seen coming out of Fulham Broadway tube station this evening.}

7.) 10 Feb 2019 20:17:00
Zizu using the tube? Must be a lookalike ed.

8.) 10 Feb 2019 21:19:20
Hes also been spotted with Pochatino and Beckam. Strange times Ed002.

Surely just because JM happened to agree with many other pundits scouts and supporters on some of the best talent around in world football doesn’t mean that they are looking to pursue ‘his’ targets after firing him. There are more opinions than JM’s and it is possible for those opinions to be the same?
Felix is supposedly one of the best young talents in Europe so why would United not be interested, regardless of what JM thought?


{Ed002's Note - It was not him agreeing with pundits, scouts and supporters - his interest in him went back a very long way. The club failed to give him support yet are now looking at his targets. Embarrassing is the word.}

I think the sensible thing is to rest no more than 1 player from defence, 1 from midfield and 1 from attack each time we need to vary from the preferred 11 in this busy period of games.
That way we maintain majority of the team doing what it does game in game out. That should also make it easier for others to slot in and do their job.

One player can’t carry a bad team MPez, not on their own.

Based on people’s comments on a very complex situation with far too many variables. it will be interesting to see how Scholes fares at Oldham.

With Bayern’s two aging winger (Robben and Ribery) if Costa was any good as a winger they would have kept him instead of letting him go to Juve. Surely.


{Ed001's Note - it is attitude rather than ability that saw him leave. He was fed up with those two being in the team ahead of him and wanted out and wasn't prepared to listen when told that things would change.}

One things for certain Ken, he and the coaching team will be working on it as we speak.
