I've been a Manchester United Supporter for 47 years, they won't sack Jose until it's Mathematically impossible for us to get into the top 4, as we then lose lots of money from our Sponsors, until then we will all have to suffer this dreadful brand of Football, I know it's No comfort to hear this, but it's my Opinion and that is what this site is all about.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 23:10:55
i never understood why they wait for it to mathematically be impossible to sack the manager. why not do it earlier so you can guarantee a place in top 4. unless they've accepted we won't get it this year.

2.) 03 Dec 2018 06:44:52
I'd assume that once it's guaranteed we won't get Top 4, we can let him go without paying as much compensation?

Eds, any insight into the structure of his contract extension and when it might become cheaper to move on?

{Ed025's Note - not at this time mate..

3.) 03 Dec 2018 08:51:37
IM7, I would imagine it’s so they have grounds to cancel/ payout the contract. I would assume there are a number of Key Performance Indicators written in with top 4 being one of them. The managers contract is a contract of employment (fixed term) and he will be covered by the same legal rights as anyone else in the country.

4.) 03 Dec 2018 10:28:17
Do you think they have done a cost analysis, Sacking Jose early v missing out on Champions League, which would lose more money?

5.) 03 Dec 2018 13:01:42
They will have for sure. But it's hard to factor in things like future sponsorship, future signings (ie targets want more money if not in CL or say no when they would have said yes) .

I'm sure we are hemorrhaging viewers on TV across the world, that has to have a knock on effect. Takes a lifetime to build a reputation, a few years of LVG and Jose to virtually destroy it.

People are selfish. Woody will not look good sacking yet another manager (so soon after handing him a ridiculous new deal) and failing to secure top 4. Everyone will be looking out for their own personal best interests right now rather than the club or the fans.

In a decent/ honest world. Jose would have packed his bags long ago but he wants money, Woody would have admitted his mistake long ago, but he wants money. The club would have realised we are losing our soul, but they want money. The players would have upped their game, but irrespective of performance they earn and want money.

Most players nowadays know they will earn more by forcing a move than they would by doing their job. Little morals and honour left in the game now at the top end unfortunately.

I wish we could just rip out all the poison surrounding the club and just build it back from the solid foundations we have, but the world doesn't work like that. Just like in the real world with empires, they get too big, too selfish, to greedy and ultimately the empire dies and is reborn as something else. We have bad apples throughout the club, directors, management, players - we need to cull it all before it's too late.

6.) 03 Dec 2018 23:10:39
Who does the culling if those making the decisions are bad apples?

watching tonight's game, too many players making bad or lazy decisions, shaw, herrera, martial, to name a few.
a lot of players need to leave in the summer if not before, passing for passing sake, it's not rocket science GET IT WIDE CROSS IT AND SCORE.


1.) 03 Nov 2016 20:10:39
This is going to be a tough ride. Mourinho needs the right playears and I don't know if the squad is right or anyway close. I would say De Gea, Baily and Pogba are the only 3 he knows he would pick week in week out the others could all be replaced.

2.) 03 Nov 2016 20:26:09
What's the point of tear arising down the wing when you two old and slow strikers are the ones passing the ball from 25 yards behind and won't be in the 18 yard box for sometime. To give fenerbache credit they are a lot higher up the league than we are up ours.

I think lvg is finding English football a lot better than he thought.

I think he expected teams to sit back and admire them instead they are getting stuck in.

If lvg doesn't know his best team or formation how does he expect the team to play with any structure or confidence, most of them, are playing it safe with passes back or to the side, scared to give the ball away.

just watched the game tonight, we won that's the best I can say, the starting line up was devoid of ideas, ponderous, cue plan B send fellani up front again, several players not doing enough for me.

Arsenal next I'll be stunned if we beat them playing like this, i live in hope.

I think if Darren Fletcher is fit, he should be the new Captain, it's a big if but he's the Scotland Captain, and I think when he is fully fit he would be a great Captain.


1.) 26 Jul 2014 12:14:57
He won't play nearly enough to be Vice-captain never mind Captain.

2.) Being captain of a pub level team doesn't qualify you to be captain of Manchester United.

3.) 26 Jul 2014 13:45:21
I would be seriously Upset if I saw him playing enough to be considered.

4.) He would be captain of a sinking ship if he were to be made captain of us and played regularly. We need better than that, obviously shame about his illness, but football wise he should be at Newcastle/Stoke not Man Utd.

5.) 26 Jul 2014 14:18:14
Calm down on the Fletcher bashing, okay he's not a fantastic midfielder now mainly thanks to his illness and yes we do need better but he's still a great professional with a lot of passion and love for the club which to be honest is everything a captain should be. Maybe try show a little more gratitude.

6.) Thankyou Darren Fletcher for your passion(Gratitude).
But you are not good enough for the captaincy or UTD anymore(reality).

Patrice Evra, Thanks, I Salute You

Red Devil forever.

I just watched the press conference,
I can't wait, for this season, a full house every home game, young players getting there chance, an attacking style of football, and a Man who looks as though he was born for this job.
Glory Glory Man. United.


1.) I think a lot of fans are expecting too much, too soon. LvG could well do very well at OT, but don't take it for granted. The players didn't like Moyes' way of doing things last summer, and see what happened. LvG is a far better manager than Moyes, and I am not directly comparing them. But LvG is likely to upset many people with his ways. But he won't care less and will stick to his pronciples. That is not a bad thing, but it will take time for the players to adjust to his ways and methods, so I think it would be foolish to expect instant success.
I just hope the fans accept the situation for what it is, and don't start turning on him if we don't start off too well, because we may not see his plans bearing fruit for a few months. Personally, I am far more confident in LvG than I was in Moyes, but this time round we, as fans, need to get behind the new manager 100% from the start., and not get carried away with expectation. At least not immediately anyway.

2.) Betty, stop, being negative, we need to win our 1st 10 games. Looking forward to seeing his pronciples though

3.) AJH, I thought you would be first to spit my mistake :)

Too much Blue Nun again!

Lvg likes Strootman as a player, he's mentioned him in several interviews, he brings balance to the way van gaal's system works.

I also agree with other posts that players who do not embrace van gaals system will be leaving, van gaal is not interested in star players, he's only interested in The Team.
