Solskjaer name had been mentioned.


{Ed002's Note - Regardless of him managing the reserves for a few years it would be high risk in my view. It would be an enormous step up from Molde so it is hard to be confident it would work.}

1.) 18 Dec 2018 14:11:01
It's a risk but then again itsxonly for the next 5 month .

{Ed002's Note - Why would he leave his job for such an offer then?}

2.) 18 Dec 2018 14:16:51
Any information that suggest that board is happy with Woodward and he will continue in his current role.
Would DOF takeover him later on the footballing front.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 15:05:46
Maybe get paid 3x the salary over the next 5 month and raise his profile .

{Ed002's Note - I think that is a pretty dreadful thing to say. You ceratinly don't deserve anyone decent at the club with so called supporters saying things like that.}

4.) 18 Dec 2018 15:11:31
We're not entitled to anyone and anything Jred.

5.) 18 Dec 2018 15:22:50
I think the guys already fairly well known an maybe he likes managing his hometown club.

6.) 18 Dec 2018 15:27:50
Isnt the whole OLE rumour based on the fact the Norweigan league shut down 3 weeks ago until March, the tabloids are jumping on the fact he is sitting at home watching countdown for 3 months so why not? (ignoring the fact he still has work to do with Molde in the off season)

7.) 18 Dec 2018 15:30:48
It's not Ole, his tenure at Cardiff was not great. Apparently it will be an ex-player. Steve Bruce anyone.

8.) 18 Dec 2018 15:35:53
Could Giggs job share with Wales?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, it gives him an excuse when things go wrong.}

9.) 18 Dec 2018 16:24:54
Hi Ed002, hope you’re well. You’ve previously mentioned Berta and Campos regarding a DOF role. Are there any further names being considered, possibly even left-field options?

{Ed002's Note - I have dealt with this at length before. Nothing has changed.}

10.) 18 Dec 2018 16:45:45
I have looked at previous posts now and you gave us some good suggestions. Thanks again, hope you have a quiet evening!

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

11.) 18 Dec 2018 17:09:25
Blanc can be the only serious contender surely?

{Ed002's Note - To a large extent the press release has been a self inflicted wound. I have no doubt that Laurent Blanc would take the job on a permanent basis but perhaps he feels his "hands would be tied" (I am paraphrasing) if he would simply be asked to coach until the end of the season with little or no control over players or transfers in January? If he really wants the full time job and I am sure that there is a concern that if he is constrained as an interim it may not go well as it could and could then potentially exclude him from the opportunity in the summer. For me is would be an excellent choice for the club in the long term. If it is going to be simply an interim role Solskjaer and Phelan may do a decent job but it means Manchester United don't have a good long time solution. OGS would need to leave his current job after MU negotiate with his club and, good or not (at the very least risky), could easily find themselves at a loose end in June. Perhaps the club should reconsider how they are looking to transition to a new coach and at least give a good opportunity to an interim coach to get the role on a full time basis.}

12.) 18 Dec 2018 18:26:18
United saying that we will appoint an external interim manager until the end of the season within 48 hours led me to believe that they had someone already lined up. If this isn't the case then why even mention it? As a precursor to any manager taking over that they're not permanent and don't expect any money in January or a say on which players stay or go?

13.) 18 Dec 2018 20:13:07
As someone who watched OGS throughout his time at cardiff (from his appointment, to the relegation and to the subsequent firing while in the championship), I can confirm that he was in my opinion the worst manager we have had in my time as a supporter. Defensively he was woeful, going forward we looked confused and overall we had absolutely no plan. He made selection decisions which absolutely mystified the fans, e. g. playing our best midfielder at left back (more shocking as he was slow and couldn't defend) . Not only were the results bad but his signings were out of their depth and he left the club in a position which we are only just now recovering from. If he does take the united job, it would surprise me if he makes it till May.

14.) 18 Dec 2018 22:16:01
Hi guys not posted on here for ages as I lost my username RRED7

Really don’t want to be sentimental and watch Ole ruin his legacy at our club, Someone who can cement the players and instantly have their respect would be the candidate for me and Blanc I think fits that bill. He would probably regardless of your opinion of him get the best from Pogba who if you believe all the rumours has been a catalyst of Jose getting the boot. I honestly think we will see a different Pogba now who will put a shift in.

I don’t like what he has done this season or today with his tweet but he has the potential played the right way to ignite us.

15.) 19 Dec 2018 07:11:07
Pogba should be next out the door.

16.) 19 Dec 2018 11:52:02
The problem with hiring Blanc for a team built around Pogba, Martial, Rashford, Lingard, Bailly, Fred, Young, Lukaku:



22 Nov 2018 15:58:43
Ed any truth in the rumour Madrid are interested in Rasford.


{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest from Real Madrid and Juventus to some extent.}

1.) 22 Nov 2018 17:00:35
Why would they want him? He's rubbish, even the great, the wonderful and the all knowing Jose Mourinho can't get the best out of him.

Clearly he can't be any good.

2.) 22 Nov 2018 16:53:22
Cheers ed.

3.) 22 Nov 2018 17:11:11
Loads a talent going to be a good player . Hopefully at United.

4.) 22 Nov 2018 18:04:24
Shappy, I think your single minded hatred is slowly damaging your reputation on here.

5.) 22 Nov 2018 20:15:39
Agreed Fresh.

6.) 22 Nov 2018 20:38:27
Be careful shaps don't want to be one of them players who just come on to have a rant about certain players .

To be fair to shappy he does make some good points about Jose and asks some Interesting questions.
That people either miss or choose to ignore .

7.) 22 Nov 2018 21:35:18
+1 Fresh.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 22:31:51
There are a lot of people don’t rate Rashford and would be happy to see him sold. Yet Madrid and Juve must see something others don’t.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 23:09:16
Played in more games than anybody else last season as a 20 yo more than players like scholes becks butt did at the same age. I think he is doing fine. The manager sees the same perhaps ajh.

10.) 22 Nov 2018 23:13:41
The reason Madrid and co are interested in Rashford it is because he is going to be cheaper then their first choice targets.

It is one thing to play in la liga and serie A then playing in the premier league.

I also think if Mourinho stays then one of Rashford or Martial is not going to get the games they want as Mourinho is under pressure to win and he won't win with two rookies who are still learning their game.

It is best for Rashfors to move to get important game time. He could even go on loan to a premier league to get game time and then come bk to our club when he is ready.

We have become a cosy club and need to be ruthless in decision making.

11.) 23 Nov 2018 00:02:46
So you think we should get rid of a rookie like martial who has scored in his last 5 games and buy who .
A world-class player like Sanchez?

Maybe Madrid and juve are interested in Rasford because they can see the potential of a 21 year old player playing for England and United.

I have taken a step back from the site to be honest because some of the views and insights really have changes from a few year back.



26 Sep 2018 10:02:11
Just read this sums it up for me

Where was the game plan, the identity, the intensity? Echoing Paul Pogba's words, the man who was unceremoniously relieved of his duties as stand-in skipper, the Stretford End chanted 'attack! attack! attack!


1.) 26 Sep 2018 10:47:54
Come on Jred don't try to think rationally.

Just blame Pogba.

After all, it's Pogba's fault Frank Lampard who has been in management since June and his team plays better ball than Jose.

It's also due to Pogba's haircut, social media antics, lack of commitment and respect to the club that made Mourinho who so much loves and respects the club say Man United have no football heritage after we lost to Sevilla.

Also, regardless that Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham were below us last season and the fact that they lost more games than us but were never outplayed by Wolves, Huddersfield, Derby and the likes at home within the matter of a few days, Mourinho had nothing to do with it. It was all Pogba's fault.

Even the fact that we cannot count 15 games we utterly dominated throughout without looking vulnerable or likely to lose the said games at a point in the last 3 years cannot be Mourinho's fault - it's all Pogba's.

That's probably why Juventus kicked him out because he's a no-good, pre-madonna who only cares about his looks, social media and running his mouth to the press.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 12:31:23
The Stretford usually chants attack attack attack and they did so last night but tbh not until in the 94th minute.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 12:36:04
Very much his scapgoat last year, herrera must be pleased it isn't him this season.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 12:49:10
pre-madonna haha love it.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 19:12:05
Keep hearing about pre-Madonna's. Do we have any post-Madonna players?

6.) 27 Sep 2018 15:25:46
What we need are current-madonnas.



27 Aug 2018 16:52:08
A lot of talk matic will play in a back 3 tonight.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 17:41:22
That's pretty much how he was utilised a lot last season anyway.

2.) 28 Aug 2018 19:41:51
And as it panned out it looked like we played nobody at the back.



01 Aug 2018 19:42:47
Ed some reports that kovacic as turned down a move to United as he  feels our playing style woukd be a bad fit with his own skills.
Any truth in it.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that. There are sides interested in him.}

14 Feb 2019 05:36:02
Dear me what a difference 1 game makes .


1.) 14 Feb 2019 06:42:24
Agree. Don’t understand why there is so much criticism. Fine we lost a game. But it’s not the end of the world. It’s not like we are strong enough to be challenging the CL trophy. I believe the focus should be:
1. Ensure we continue with momentum and be top 4 in PL.
2. Try to go as far as possible in FA Cup and win if possible.
3. Go as far as possible in CL this season.
Those would be the priorities I feel in that order.
We have a good team but by no means a team to be challenging on all fronts. We have not been doing too well for the last 5 years and I would think just because we have a new manager (OGS or anyone else) we would suddenly be the top team in a flash. I sincerely think even if we have Poch in as manager in summer there is no bloody guarantee. We still need to really beef up our defense. We have a decent midfield but can still improve. We also still need to beef up our attacking team and improve teamwork. The only position we are world class is our GK. All else will need improvement. So even if you have a world class manager we still are short.
I believe that OGS has the mentality and character to bring us forward. Beside SAF will be guiding him behind the scene. If we could also tie Phelan to 1-2 years till Carrick and team are up to standard we could then build to be become title challengers for CL title. Otherwise I think we should target and win the PL next season and possibly FA and League Cups.
That’s my humble opinion and hope we don’t slag the team just on 1 loss. There will be more to come but hopefully not crucial to knock us out of top 4. Rome certainly wasn’t built in one day.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 07:40:02
Why? What happened?

3.) 14 Feb 2019 07:44:31
Good post 666.
We don't have a squad capable of competing to win the epl or cl.
But there has been a lot of improvement from where we were under jose this season.
Tue night was no surprise to most but if we had not been so unlucky to lose 2 of the front 3 within 2 mins of each other the result might have been better.
Top 4 is the main priority.
The squad have only managed that twice in the last 5 seasons. that's the reality of where we are.
Some people put all that blame on the 3 previous managers, and yes none of them covered themselves in glory but the reality is the players are and have not been good enough either.
Ole has us moving in a better direction. The style and mood has improved along with the results. We have hit a little road bump i am sure we will see a good reaction and focus will return to the league and securing enough points to pip arsenal and chelsea to 4th.

4.) 14 Feb 2019 08:02:36
You know yourself angel😂😂😂😂.



10 Feb 2019 07:36:08
You have to wonder where we would be if ole had taken over in the summer? 25 points from 27 is a great return.
Jose said top 4 was impossible, ole has got us there after given the other teams a head start.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 16:14:38
Good question jred.

I think that it was the perfect time for ole. Had he come in the summer, he might not have been able to get the same reaction from the players.

I think it's a case of it being the perfect fit for this group right now. And I really believe that ole can build on this to great effect.

2.) 10 Feb 2019 16:48:50
why angel, ole hasn't done anything special in the managerial perspective that some how stopped us losing. He did the basics correctly, if you have a team full of attacking talents asking them to play 11 behind the ball isn't going to work well, telling your players they are rubbish every time you open your mouth doesn't help morale or make the players want to work hard for you. It wasn't the liverpool or city results that hurt us it was the brighton, west ham and southampton results that hurt us.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 17:23:32
CSM, what are you on about?

I'm answering the question poised by jred in the OP.

I think it is the perfect setting for Ole now rather than last summer.

I'm not talking about the differences between jose and ole. I'm talking about the timing of taking over.

4.) 10 Feb 2019 17:34:07
angel you are saying the results ole has achieved wouldn't have been possible had he been appointed in the summer rather than in December, i am saying ole would have been a similar success he is now had he been appointed in summer, the problems at utd this season weren't players related they were manager created for most part.

5.) 10 Feb 2019 17:55:20
I'm not saying that it wouldn't have been possible. I'm unable to look into some alternative universe where ole was appointed in the summer.

I just think that the timing was perfect for him now and the bounce he got was created by his ability to get the players enjoying himself now. It would have been a different scenario last summer and a different tact would have been needed.

Because of that I'm unsure as to whether or not Ole would have been as successful.

6.) 10 Feb 2019 22:42:07
Its pointless looking back at what ifs.
The here and now is what matters.
Jose made some good signings but couldn't get them to play for him and wouldn't alter his style to suit the players.
He also couldn't get the best from some of the players he inherited.
Ole is getting the best out of both.

There will be some casualties so to speak because for example lukaku was bought to do one job but ole wants his cf to do a play a different way.
Ole came in at a time when the players were obviously frustrated at being shackled and he allowed them to be free. He has not put a foot wrong so far. Sure its been scrappy at times but he has a very tight core group to choose from particularly in midfield.

I think everybody is confident about our front 3 jessie rash and martial with sanchez as 1st choice cover for any of them and lukaku and mata offering a strong option from the bench too for the remainder of the season.
Full back is a 3 way fight between young dalot and shaw and if all 3 stay fit due to young and dalots versatility again we should get through to the end of the season with darmian there in case of emergency or valencia
Midfield we are very light with a largely unproven fred and mctom being the only serious back up to herrera pogba and matic and its here we may well be found wanting.

The cb area of the squad is the most interesting one.
Who is oles preferred pair.
I like many felt bailly would become a beast. He started brilliantly. He had injuries and some very poor displays. Was it all down to jose? Mayne. But even under ole he has been rash and nervy. So its not too late for him.
Lindelof is no1 all season
Jones always gives his all injury and error prone but a good pro with a good mentality.

Smalling was joses no1 a bit sloppy at times and not a very calming influence imo.
Rojo there for emergency.
I suppose we will see oles no1 pairing if all aur fit and available for psg.
Some really exciting fixtures ahead.
I think most of us are going into them with confidence in the players confidence in the coaches and but also in the knowledge that we have a manager who despite his jovial and extremely pleasant nature has a steely determination to win and succeed and to out HIS club back to the place where it belongs. He is a coach that is steeped in the clubs traditions and i can't think of a better custodian at this time.

7.) 10 Feb 2019 22:49:22
Ole would have had us closer to the top three than Jose anyway. All we were getting at seasons start was "this squad isn't good enough". etc. " board isn't backing me". i bet ole would not have said any of that. In a game of inches surely positivity counts for so much. Ole should've been appointed aftet the Sevilla game last year.

If Rojo is the answer I dread to think what the question is.

Good post and as you at this moment I can't think of anyone better. We need now to make the appointment and get planning for summer. Not just in terms of incomings but also outgoings. We have at least half a dozen players we need to be moving in to clear down the wage bill and make room for some youngsters. Add in 3-4 signings.

The virus is starting to look a decent player, starting to look like the player from juve and the one that won the wc.


1.) 15 Jan 2019 09:26:12
Yh absolutely if he is a virus then this team needs a strong dose of it.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 11:00:50
This is the Pogba we want to see consistently.
He was constantly shouting instructions in the Spurs match and very few can produce the inch perfect pass he gave to Rashford.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 11:07:07
Clearly Mourinho was the main issue, however, Pogba has not covered himself in glory either. His response to Mourinho getting sacked was at best classless at worst showing deep character flaws in him as a person that will hold him back professionally.

He doesn't want to be here and has had his agent activity looking for a new club. Our club is open to selling him and have also looked for a buyer.

I still feel his days are numbered, and although his form has been excellent since Ole took over I have concerns that our team seems entirely set up to play for and around him. That's a dangerous game long term as an injury or a drop in form of Pogba and the sides form will drop too. Especially as we have no one who can step in and play the way Pogba does.

I see his good form as win-win, we get good performances from a top player, if he stays then hopefully those performances continue, if he does leave then those performances should flush out a buyer and hopefully increase his value.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 11:51:30
Here’s a hypothetical. How would Ronaldo have behaved / played if his Manager was always having a dig or playing him in the ‘wrong’ position? I guess we’ll never know. Pogba hasn’t behaved great but let’s see if he can continue to pay well. Wothiughwoshing to be controversial, I don’t think he’s been brilliant. Much improved, more attacking, setting up goals, but still drifts for large parts of the game. However, you can really see the potential for him to be truly great now.

Ole talks about building a team around him so not sure how that sits with the looking to leave, willing to sell situaton. One final point on PP. I’m not a huge fan of the ainstagram, brand approach but I don’t think we can correlate that to his perfromances on the pitch. Lewis Hamilton jets all over the world doing music videos, fashion shoots, parties, and yet he delivers on the track. If PP can win us games consistently he can take as many stupid photos as he likes.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 11:53:36
Jred you clearly hate Mourinho as you always have to mention something to do with Mourinho just to prove your point.

6.) 15 Jan 2019 11:54:24
Pogba should still go because when things go bad he will throw his out toy out of the pram again.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 15:03:57
Pogba is playing well jose is history.
I agree with ajh he is still lacking in areas he can improve.
A team can be built around him if you have players that compliment his weaknesses and are prepared to do some of his defencive duties. But he is definitely trying harder and the key is he seems to be enjoying himself.
Everybody on this site critisised him and were quite correct in doing so. He has a different role in the team now one that he is benefiting from but if he had done his best to carry out the role the previous manager wanted him to do despite his personal reservations i would have admired him more personally.
There are lots of players playing better under ole than jose so its been the correct move by the board. Lots of positives so far and no real negatives so i'm very optimistic.

8.) 15 Jan 2019 17:37:32
I've been vocal about PP and I still stand my my opinion of him, but even his biggest critic cannot deny the upturn in form. He's been incredible recently.

The thing I was most impressed with on Sunday, he tracked back to the left corner flag to block a cross, and turned to have a go at Martial (who I think is the weak link in our pressing game) .

Agree with what Shappy said above. PP's values as a person are questionable at best. Personally I think he's petulant and the first sign of things not going his way he will revert to type. Mourinho clearly wasn't right for the club but the way PP behaved was not that of a leader.

I'm still of the opinion he should be sold, but if he keeps up current form for the remainder of the season he will have proved me wrong, which I only hope is the case.
