so the Jose out talk has began again.

but realistically who could we go for. i can't think of any standout managers to come in and instantly change it.

There are none. We need to rebuild. There is no manager who can come in and wave the magic wand and fix everything in a matter of weeks.

A manager who will play modern progressive football while developing young players is what we need.

Shortlist of 5 plausible names that would fit the model:

Nuno Santo

Allegri, Spaletti, Ancelloti, Marcelo Galllardo (River plate)?

Zidane's playing style is very similar to what Jose does imo, sit back and hit on the counter, Jardim is average. Eddie Howe has done wonders with the squad he has, does he have that pedigree to manage Manchester United?
Pochettino is good when it come to Premier league games, but i see a completely different Tottenham team when they play in Europe.

I really don't get the love in with Zoe and. I know he won the Champions League 3 times, but I don't think his style of football is overly attacking but he was blessed with Ronaldo who won games on his own. Can't remember much youth being developed at Madrid while he was there either.

I'd rather avoid him and (If we were to change manager) go for someone who actually fits what we want rather than being a big name - big names advent worked out well with players or managers recently.

Marco Silva?

Not interested in any manager until we have the right person in post as DoF.

Then we can set out our plans on scouting, youth development, player recruitment and style of play.

The DoF cannthen select the next Head Coach with the other Directors.

We need to be in it for the long term and get things right.

Don’t want the current manager sacked or to leave unless we have a DoF in post or ready to takeover.

Bielsa? If he could speak English.
Or Allegri and the staff from the main structure of Juventus. I like the way juventus have played this season.

I really like Howe but i think first the club needs to appoint a DoF and then he/ she will decide who the next manager should be. One thing i know for sure, the special one is not special anymore.

Give someone like Howe a chance, ticks a lot of boxes for work on and off the pitch ready for a big job.
Same goes for poch.

Shouldn’t look any further than Poch for me. Top manager who improves players, brilliant man management skills and his teams play football the right way. Don’t buy into the doubts about his trophy credentials. With all due respect, he is at spurs. They aren’t expected or demanded to win trophies year on year. United is a step up that he craves and I can see him doing very well here. Add a director of football and we have a basis to build and restructure. Ed has mentioned Paul Mitchell and that would work very nicely as I believe he has worked with Poch previously as head of recruitment at Southampton and spurs.

We bemoan Jose for not being great with signings. Eddie howe hasn't exactly got a great record.

Is that not down to Bournemouth owners 🤣
Doing a good job with the players he has tho .
Excellent off the pitch, modern ideas that tie to the current DNA of football ideas.

Bournemouth get to spend about 35 million a season on average, and made two, maybe three signings in each of the last 3 seasons. Brooks, Aké, Cook and Begovic have been good signings. Can't think of the ones you're referring to, Angel. Maybe Ibe. Lerna's taken a while to adapt, but looks to be a tidy enough player. I can understand people having doubts about Howe's experience, but I don't think you can slate him for his record in the transfer market. Especially compared to José's last three seasons.

Double standards jred? Howe’s poor record at signings is down to the owners and not him whilst our poor signings are due to the manager and not the owners? Convenient!

Zidane’s style is the same as Jose. The only reason he won 3 UCL titles was due to one person you might be familiar with. He goes by the name Ronaldo. Ever thought why Zidane decided to take a break from Real’s managerial position (probably the best seat in the world) all of a sudden? Was it down to the fact that Ronaldo was moving away and he knew he was nothing without that magician.

Shan, you honestly think Zidane has such low confidence in himself?

Who are all the poor signings?

Shan mourinho also had the same guy to manage at real I wonder why mourninho failed to win even 1 let alone 3?

CSM, by your logic, SAF should have won 6? SAF had Ronnie for 6 years. My post was not about Jose, so for once please take your head out of his backside.

Anyway, I am ready to bet that Juventus would be the UCL champions this season. One reason and one reason only – Ronaldo.

Moon, I honestly think that people should just sit back, relax and enjoy the game for what it is – A GAME. If you don’t enjoy it, there are tons of other stuff to be done, go enjoy that. I can't stand the fact that people have so much time to just ramble on and on and on about the absolute same thing day in day out. I bet people have had the same post repeated countless times for the past 3 years.

Guys, its just a game. Don’t make it a matter of life and death. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it please. Nobody will force you to watch. I myself have been the guilty party to this for several years but I have understood that there are better things to do in life than vent out my frustration on a keyboard. I understand that people don’t like Jose Mourinho and that’s each to his own and we don’t have to agree to like him. But atleast respect the position he holds right now – The Manager of Manchester United, the club we all love. He won't be here for a century. Simply take a break like the great Zidane and come back when Jose is gone. Just reading photocopies of posts does my head in. I used to be on this page for 3-4 hours each day. I hardly come on here anymore simply for the reasons stated. We have all lost patience as a community and I am certain that the next manager will also get similar treatment once the results go downhill.

I am not a Jose fan, I am a United fan. I watch United and I don’t care if the manger is SAF, Busby, Jose, LvG, Moyes, Poch, Pep, Klopp, Bielsa, Zidane etc etc etc….

I agree with you but you never answered my question as to whether zidanes ego is so small he doesn’t credit himself fot setting records unlikely to be matched.

So your solution to mourinho being a useless manager is for utd fans to stop watching us play.

About ronnie stuff, fergie won 1 and made another final in ronaldo's last 2 seasons with us, if we had prime ronaldo with us for a few more seasons don't doubt fergie would have won more, unlike mourinho who couldn't even make finals.

No Moon, i don't think so. No doubt he is a good manager but i also think deep down he knew that without Ronaldo in his team, Real would struggle and ultimately he would get the sack just like the latest Madrid manager has. No manager likes to be sacked so its better to take a break.

He would ofcourse be credited for 3 UCL titles as a manager but as a human, we all know our capabilities. I am sure he never thought that he would win so much so early.

{Ed001's Note - Zidane left because he was told Bale had to be centrepiece of the side and Zizou wanted to offload him and buy some new players.}

23.) 13 Nov 2018
13 Nov 2018 16:45:23
And Ed, if Ronaldo stayed, Bale would never have been central. Now i am not in the know and not challenging what you state, just stating what a normal human would.

{Ed001's Note - Ronaldo was always leaving this summer as he was unhappy and arguing over his contract. Again. And Madrid had had enough of him and decided his salary demands outweighed his usefulness to them.}
