Once a red always a red. Jose Mourinho is in the Ferrari garrage today at Silverstone.

Welcome to Manchester United AWB and Dan James. Hope that the two live up to the hype that has been created and make the club proud and succesful.

Two good signings. All we need now is a ball playing center back, a gritty dm, a creative center mid and perhaps another attacking player if Lukaku leaves.

I’d personally prefer it if it he stayed, but the writing seems to be on the wall.

2.) 29 Jun 2019 14:57:33
The best thing about AWB is that he instantly improves the RB area. Massive upgrade on Young.
Finally we can now attack from both the wings.

3.) 29 Jun 2019 15:59:08
The bigger bonus is we actually have a fullback who is good at defending. Young is a disaster, and Shaw is positionally poor. At least with AWB we have some defensive stability.

Wan bissaka, two bissaka, three bissaka four
We ain't playing Ashley young anymore.

GDS2 I implore you to show me the positives. You wanted me to post positivities. Tell me what. Tell me what Ole has done for me to be convinced that he is the man for the job. That was a relegated team, 20th position.

That was dross if Jose was ere we would be calling for his head.

{Ed025's Note - your dead right eric..

2.) 05 May 2019 16:03:36
I’m with you, I see no positives. I wouldn’t let OGS rebuild but the club probably will and like it or not the world class players will want Champions League, we will be looking at second rate players, or mercenaries being offloaded by the clubs that are rebuilding.

3.) 05 May 2019 16:07:31
they already are eric, he is going to be on a hiding to nothing next season. If we don't start well he will be gone by next December just like Mourinho. The bigger problem though is who gets rid of the moron who appointed him.

4.) 05 May 2019 16:07:39
I am calling for his head, but I hope it is sold as Ole realising he is totally out of his depth.

5.) 05 May 2019 16:13:27
Yes because these players aren’t to blame it’s the manager. Give it a rest, this is a pathetic bunch of cowards not Manchester United players.

6.) 05 May 2019 16:18:24
How on earth are players like jones still at the club, Sanchez even starting, why do we let rashford still take free kicks, he seems to think he is Ronaldo, stop him please, and I think his attitude has been poor lately, .
If we let Phelan become Technical Director it won’t get fixed, far too many mediocre players at the club.

7.) 05 May 2019 16:18:57
Just watch all the media experts who championed Ole for the job now change their tune and question the logic in appointing him. Redknapps the first to abandon ship. Experts my arse. Lovely man but this is the toughest job in world football at the minute. Don't think it will end well for him but who's the man to change things?

{Ed025's Note - thats the $64000 question porche..

8.) 05 May 2019 16:27:16
Porsche like it or not we had the man for the job till 6 months ago but we backed these players against the manager.

9.) 05 May 2019 16:47:01
Red man, I thought you said we can't keep bowing to the players and we need to get behind the manager?

Two-faced much?

10.) 05 May 2019 16:48:36
Yes because its all his fault that certain players make no effort.

The positive is that with each game maybe just how crap these players are sinks in with Woodward and he realises the scale of the mess he's made.

11.) 05 May 2019 17:00:46
Players are absolutely wqck and thr manager is out of hid depth. It dorsnt matter if he is a legend or not, this is Manchester United and he shouldn't have been appointed on emotions but i still believe he should get the backing just to get rid of the players which are not good enough and then we consider changing him next year.

It doesn't matter what manager comes, we will not win anything with the players we have at our disposal.

Id get rid of the whole team apart from Mata, De Gea and that is how bad the first team is.

12.) 05 May 2019 17:02:55
AAA, well done for prediciting that we won't win today, i actuqlly thought we would won by a few but i guess this is a new low in a must wn we end up drawing against the team that has won only 3 games.

13.) 05 May 2019 17:09:23

The right manager definitely, I never called for Mourinho to go because he had demonstrated in prior roles, he knew what it took to sort it out but OGS has no pedigree whatsoever to give us any confidence he can sort this out. This isn’t just a few players not playing, this is having no obvious method, framework or structure in what we are trying to do on the pitch, not managing during the games and that is the managers responsibility. OGS has tried all different methods according to Neville but is that the work of a tactician or just someone who doesn’t know what is needed at that level, learning on the job. It isn’t good enough to just trust in someone, we need experienced hands who the players, those who are still here next season, trust and know will get it right because they have done it before. We failed to do any process, just appointed him after a few games, didn’t seem to consider anyone else and now we are paying for that decision. We wouldn’t appoint him now, we judged him on a few results and we need to realise the potential damage that is going to be done if he stays.

14.) 05 May 2019 17:18:37
RedMan there wasn't anyone else. The only other contender Woodward had in mind turned the job down. Says it all really.

15.) 05 May 2019 17:27:31
I can't deny I'd take poch now in a heartbeat. But I don't want ole to be sacked, I want him to quit and say he isn't up to the job.

This last few weeks has been so frustrating. We've had so many chances to claim top 4, more than I ever thought we'd get, and we were too pathetic to take it. Change needs to happen, and a lot of it. I don't see how we get top 4 next season. Best bet is europa league win which gives us champions league football the following year. That's huge pressure next season. I don't see the club in its current form succeeding and honestly don't know if this can even be turned around.

16.) 05 May 2019 17:29:26
Red Man, I must have missed it, but as your such a Jose expert could you point out when Mourinho has been a success during his third season at a club?

17.) 05 May 2019 17:32:54
No one would be a success with this team. Jose wanted to get rid of the rotten tomatoes but he didn't get a chance and toxics got thier way again.

18.) 05 May 2019 17:40:25
We took a chance taking ole on a full time basis. He should have got the job if he achieved anything which he hasn’t. Now the most important thing is to get the players out that need to go. Also identify the correct players that aren't just a quick fix. Its going to be difficult and there will be lots more days like today. Its infuriating watching the last few weeks but its were we are. We don’t deserve to be at the top we need to fight our way back. Ole needs to get a system in place that the players buy into. a lot of work to be done but we are united n we need to believe.

19.) 05 May 2019 17:42:39
I understand your annoyance and frustration redman. I also understand your point of view.
For me its just not fair to judge him in these players.
He has been tinkering with formations doing and trying all sorts in order to keep us competitive.
The players and squad he took over cannot play the way he wants then too. In fact just as jose told us they can't play any way . They are extremly poor players in the main. Technically tactically and physically. And mentally to that list also. Add morally to that list also. A poison running through the squad. The worst squad we've seen for 30 years.
Ole has no experience of a job of this magnitude he should not have been appointed until his trial was over.
But he has been.
Can he fix it? only time will tell but i think he should be given the opportunity to implement his ideas with players that he has coached pre season.
I ve been saying for 3 years that inheriting this squad was worse than the squad fergie got in 86.
Its rotten with big time charlies living the celebrity life thinking they are better than they are, when in fact they aren't even half as good as they think they are.
I'm gong to back ole until he rids himself of some of these players.

20.) 05 May 2019 17:46:04

This isn’t about Jose, this is about who should be manager of our club now.

Mort, I seriously do not buy for one minute that there was no one else for the job. That was the same old argument used for Moyes appointment. Are some saying unemployed Antonio Conte would not want the role? He would have been better than the ex manager of Molde and Cardiff. He has less on his cv than Moyes.

The defence of a legend is admirable but he just is not the right man for such a job, he is out of his depth. I hope he walks away, sacking blemishes him but walk away now to let us rebuild from the top down.

21.) 05 May 2019 17:53:44

I agree on the players.

There is nothing to base supporting Ole on, we have no idea if he can turn this around. He hasn’t demonstrated tactical acumen nor leadership, nor has he extracted himself from SAF’s shadow. Do we just blindly carry on with our fingers crossed? Or be decisive now and get a manager who we have seen a piece of work showing they know what they are doing?

22.) 05 May 2019 18:13:43
I agree Redman, what sort of choice was he? It was all about sentiment.

23.) 05 May 2019 18:15:27
We don't do anything redman. Ww support imo. The decision has been made. Imo his job really only starts at 6pm next Sunday. From then on ill be happy with steady and consistent improvement in many aspects.

24.) 05 May 2019 18:19:51
Hes the wrong man shappy, full stop.

25.) 05 May 2019 18:20:53
Red man, but for you the only thing you need to succeed is a good CV. That's probably why you're putting Conte forward as an option.

But Jose had the CV, as did LvG. It didn't help them be a success.

So clearly a good CV doesn't guarantee a success.

I, like you see the problems at our club being a lot higher up than the manager.

Unlike you though I feel the way to solve that is we need to back a manager who has the clubs best interests at heart. At the moment we have allowed the owners and Woodward off the hook each time by turning on the manager. They get to sack him and hang all the club's failures around his neck.

What if we did something different this time? What if we back the manager and turn on the people who are the problem?

Or we could turn on a club legend, drive him out of the club and let the people who are the real problem off the hook again.

26.) 05 May 2019 18:26:19
I don't see what a pre season would do. Ole would obviously be teaching tactics and playing style. What on earth has he been doing for 6-7 months then? Pre season is important when a new manager is appointed after the season ends not when he has been here for half a season.

What is his style? What will he sell in the summer to recruit new players?

27.) 05 May 2019 19:06:20
You're blinded shappy. OGS is in way above his head. For someone who was so critical of Jose, I am very surprised at how you believe OGS might be the answer.

28.) 05 May 2019 19:20:36
Sure appointment another defensive ex Chelsea manager. Great idea. How did Conte do again when the dressing room decided they'd had enough?

29.) 05 May 2019 19:42:11
Shappy you keep calling Jose a failure but you do remember that he won us 3 trophies and a second place and an fa cup final with this hopeless lot. If that isn't success than i am afraid you will not see anything with Ole unless ofcourse good interviews in the press are success for you.

30.) 05 May 2019 20:00:48
United Addict, he won two trophies with us. Let's not drop so low as to actually accept the Charity shield as an actual trophy. It's a glorified friendly to open the season.

Also let's not be Liverpool fans and celebrate losing finals.

Language is the key. Jose had success at our club. But you can't say he was a success. The season we have had is entirely down to Jose. Our season was over by Christmas. He failed. End of, pull your nose out of his backside long enough and you'd see that.

31.) 05 May 2019 22:45:52
The simple fact is that Ole is pulling on the heart strings, the emotional sentimental choice. There can be no other reason for retaining him

In answer to Mort, I didn’t suggest Conte but it destroys the idea there was no one available. The actual point you made was about losing the dressing room yet people are on here saying the players need sorting out. Conte won the league yet the powers that be didn’t stand by him and preferred the players. Get the right manager, stand by him. We don’t have the right manager.

32.) 06 May 2019 03:28:52
Get the right manager, and stand by him. But that's only a manager that you think is right, obviously. Otherwise, no backing. Ok, then.

33.) 06 May 2019 07:32:07
I could counter with the same for you Shappy. Better that you pull out your nose out of Ole's ass to see facts. You are championing a man who took us from a low lying 6th position and took us to the dizzying heights of 6th. His last 5 months have been worse than Jose's. See facts. If you want to say that he took us on the longest winning run then also see facts that he has now been incharge of the worst run in 40 years. Obviously it is all about Jose that we have had this season. We could have finished 3rd but what happened? The messiah failed to motivate the hopeless lot? Failed to teach scoring goals to the boy wonder? Failed to play Pogba in his favored position? Stuck with Young? Kept playing Shaw? Held back Dalot? Played Lindelof out of position? didn't play your only striker who actually knows where the goal is? Called out Martial publicly?



29 Apr 2019 08:49:38
Why do we keep bragging on about the young ones and the academy lads as if they are going to just turn up and undo everything that is wrong with the club? When was the last time one from our youth uprooted any trees anywhere in the world. What makes anyone think that these lads would be any different to any that we have churned up in the last 2 decades? Raving about Greenwood, what of he becomes the next Welbeck or Rashford? Who will be the next Cleverley, Januzaj, the next best thing?

United Addict

1.) 29 Apr 2019 09:18:49
Let's hope he does become the next Rashford, would be great to have them both up top. Search for the video of Greenwood's 30+ goals this season, absolute class and if you can't be excited about academy players coming through at our great club then what's the point? We pride ourselves on it.

2.) 29 Apr 2019 09:22:58
Maybe because a large part of our club is built on the academy.

Maybe because some of us take more pride in seeing an academy player making it into the first time rather than watching £90 million flops waddling around the pitch not giving a rubbish.

Our greatest moments have been built on academy foundations. That's what Manchester United are. We've drifted from our identity over recent seasons. Restoring our identity goes someway towards fixing the problems. That means playing academy graduates. That means backing them. If they fail they fail.

3.) 29 Apr 2019 09:25:05
Pogba? I'd say being the heartbeat of a World Cup winning team nd dominating the Serie A counts?

Rashford, despite being off-form right now, has most certainly impressed.

Lingard has won us trophies with big goals in big games.

4.) 29 Apr 2019 09:34:13
Pogba was brought in from le havre so we can't really use him as a player from our academy.

5.) 29 Apr 2019 10:01:09
For me gomez probably won't make it but would love him to prove me wrong.

Greenwood on the other hand is a completely different level, baring injury I have no doubts he will make at united

Chong can at least get to the level of being our 2nd choice right winger, you could argue we don't currently have a right winger so he is technically 1st choice already.

6.) 29 Apr 2019 13:02:55
The most impressive thing about the Greenwood goals is how good he is with both feet, has anyone ever seen another player who can take a free kick with either foot depending on the side of the goal? If he doesn't get injured Greenwood will be scoring goals in the prem in the next 2 years.

{Ed001's Note - Nedved.}

7.) 29 Apr 2019 14:07:16
Ed002 while you're here, not sure if you've seen much. But have you any opinion on Greenwood?

{Ed002's Note - A lot is expected of him, but he is a kid who has school work to be done still.}

8.) 29 Apr 2019 16:48:35
Let's hope he doesn't become the next Rashford GDS. Rashford's decision making is awful, and he can't dribble or pass.

9.) 29 Apr 2019 17:14:49
Rashford still only 21. he's done incredibly well already. I'd be more than happy if Greenwood follows his lead.

10.) 29 Apr 2019 16:24:01
Thanks ed. I really like the look of him. But as you said, just a kid. Go finish your schooling and keep training. When he's ready, I'm sure he can step up.

{Ed002's Note - There is an enormous step up from playing Youth soccerball to the Premier League.}



23 Apr 2019 10:30:49
Anyone seen or heard from The Beast lately? He has been absent from these pages for quite a few weeks now, months rather. Funny that this time coincides with the downturn in our form under the current regime. Is Beast Scholes or Giggs?

Didnt post anything after the humiliation over the weekend because it would have attracted more sarcastic comments from the "Ole at the wheel" brigade calling me out on the i told u so viewpoint. Hoping the lads turn up in midweek else we are looking at a disastrous scoreline.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 13:20:02
Hi mate - still about just not commenting as much at the minute.

I posted a few months ago during our good run that Ole should not be given the job (yet) . The players started well against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth - then played pretty much the same as under Jose and LVG since. We got lucky against Spurs and very lucky against PSG. This was ignored and the media with short-sighted fans jumped on the 'SIGN HIM UP' bandwagon.

I'm not anti-Ole, I just thing he needs to earn the job and we should have waited until the summer. Players are getting worse by the week, they are rotten, turn up once a month at best. Is Ole the best man to rebuild and kick out the weeds?

Unfortunately, yet again, the club had a plan and failed to deliver it, bowing to their media overlords and social media sycophants.

We are hard to watch and have had so much luck this season yet still don't look like making CL at this rate. Maybe for the best, so we can attract some players that want to fight and aren't only signing because they get to play in the CL.

Hopefully we sort it out during this long summer.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 14:03:41
Fair assessment Beast, not a lot to disagree with there. Not Ole’s fault, but a symptom of how poorly run the club is. Appointment of Phelan as DOF would be the final nail in the coffin.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 14:11:59
Nice to have you back buddy. Keep posting regularly. I am being a bit selfish in asking for your posts because i echo your views on the performances and Ole.

6.) 23 Apr 2019 16:03:33
we can all agree the performances are a joke but to already turn on ole is a bit embarrassing give the guy a fair crack at it.

let him have his pre season and implement his way of playing with players he wants. (if we get them)

its not going to be a case of boom title contenders next season.

its a long road and we need to get it right and give the management time with the correct resources.

7.) 23 Apr 2019 18:08:26
Beast what a post!

8.) 23 Apr 2019 18:11:04
There is a turn up, I agree with the Beast!

I recommend reading the article today, how misguided emotion left Manchester United stuck in the past.

How come you become the moral police on here? I haven't seen one post of mine where you haven't poked your nose in, isn't that what normal "informed" people would call trolling?

Opinions, each to his own. Now i am not asking you guys to say yes to what i am saying or feel. You back Ole, fine by me. I dont, so i guess it should be fine to you guys too. I have seen 6 months of football under Ole and haven't seen a style or pattern developing in his game. His in game management has been poor and saying poor is being modest. He has played his favorites week after week after week, no matter how atrocious they have been. Pre-season is a PR exercise. He has had 6 months already. I don't see how 15 days of pre-season is going to help. Yes he will get a few new players in but you can put the worlds best players in the team but unless you have a style or pattern that you want your team to play in, none of those players would do any good. And let's be honest, atleast to ourselves, we all know that it is Phelan that is the manager behind the scenes and Ole is just a yes man.

Its not about whether i respected Jose or not but atleast he had the balls to call people out who didn't want the best for the club. let's see how Ole does. As far as i have heard, club will block Pogba's transfer so what will Ole do? Play him week after week and let him spoil the club's environment. He should have the guts to not play that bad apple.

My opinion.

MH, i ain't on his back already mate. He could go on and become a brilliant player for the club no doubt. My concern is that we bought where it wasnt a burning problem. We want a RW and yet go on and buy a LW.

Lukaku wants out, but so does Pogba and De Gea. Herrera already out. that's 4 of our first team starters either out or wanting out, surely more than just an attitude issue for me. Its more of a worry that all our better players don't want to b here. And Lukaku really doesn't have an attitude and most will tell u that.
