Ole's at the wheel,
Tell me how does it feel,
We've got Sancho, Paul Pogba and Fred,
Marcus Rashford, a Manc born and bred.
Duh du, du du du du du!
Duh du, du du du du du!

In Ole I trust. Believe!

This currently is not ageing well.

16 Oct 2021 16:43:46

{Ed014's Note - no it’s defo not ageing well ??

16 Oct 2021 16:57:15
Ross you're nothing but a troll.

16 Oct 2021 17:07:38
Oles at the job centre, oles at the job centre.

{Ed014's Note - I doubt that but miracles do happen.

16 Oct 2021 17:13:26
He is not a trolley mumbles he has posted for a long time but imo rosspique you are a very poor judge of manager if you believe in ole.

16 Oct 2021 17:18:45
Lol mumbles how am i a troll you absolute *****. I don't usually reply to any of your abusive posts cause I think you're a massive *******.

Ken, I've just posted something in the last 5 mins which should delight you.

16 Oct 2021 17:19:10
I know he's been around awhile Kenny, i just think his view point at this stage is that of a troll.

16 Oct 2021 17:26:42

That would be a miracle for Utd but not for everyone else.

No fan can defend Ole. He is the clueless one.

{Ed014's Note - I know mate, I’ll be gutted if he goes!

16 Oct 2021 17:35:07

He got away with playing bad this time last year. This time he might not be so fortunate.

{Ed014's Note - the knives are definitely out for him now MH, his honeymoon period is well and truly over.

16 Oct 2021 17:43:48

Who would you think the club would look to replace him with?

{Ed014's Note - very good question MH, first of all can they be trusted to get it right?

For me though it’s Graham Potter, Marco Rose or Hansi Flick.

16 Oct 2021 18:00:29

Graham Potter would be a great shout. They need someone top notch to replace Woodward aswel, who knows what he is doing in regards to the football side of things. A top DOF would have e even good. Not sure Murtough is upto the job, time will tell.

{Ed014's Note - sadly I’ve no idea what’s going on at board level it just looks like no one there does either.

It’s not like they even gave Ole a helping hand with top level coaches.

That’s the thing that would concern me most, them having any real idea of what to do next.

You’ll likely end up with Ronaldo as player manager!

16 Oct 2021 18:22:32
Ed014, the club would shortlist the candidates you mentioned and finally bring in someone who understands the club - the culture, the DNA, the history and what not ?.

It would be interesting how they go about it. They have tried both sides of the coin and hasn't exactly worked according to plan.

It's time they stop flipping and take serious footballing decisions by bringing in top qualified professionals in key positions of the club.

For everything we know it's quite unlikely but let's hope at least the next manager is the right one.

{Ed014's Note - they really could do anything LPU, it’s a mystery to me how multi billionaire business can run football clubs so badly!

How did they get where they are and appear to be so inept ?‍♂️

16 Oct 2021 18:42:27
Ed014, they are probably blinded by the money flowing into the club and quite content with what they got that they don't see anything else.

They seem to have been knocked down by their billions that they don't bother getting up ?.

{Ed014's Note - think you’re probably right mate

16 Oct 2021 19:25:07

The club is a circus run by clowns.

{Ed014's Note - it sure looks that way mate.

16 Oct 2021 09:16:10
"Marcus has done some remarkable and fantastic things, " added Solskjaer "But now he maybe needs to prioritise his football. "

That's our manager.

Young black kid plays some great football and feeds a bunch of kids, and our manager, who himself is the biggest issue holding us back, has the god dam nerve to say that perhaps Rashford should focus on football more.

I don't care if the quote has been taken out of context a little, because given the racism that rashford faced over the penalty miss, and combined with the heavy scrutiny he's under because he plays for a man utd team that is falling well short of expectations, the manager should in no way be giving people ammunition to throw at him. Especially when the main reason we are falling so short is down to the manager.

Now I don't think this is a case of ole using rashford as an excuse to hide his own short comings, I think it's just a careless comment. But it does show how he feels, and if the manager feels it and publicly states it, then it legitimises those people out there who are using this point to drag rashford down.

Honestly, aside from kicking a puppy I don't know what ole can do to go further down in my estimations.

It has been taken out of context, read the full quotes.

16 Oct 2021 11:05:52
I read the guardian article, is there a fuller version than that? Because that left me feeling as above.

16 Oct 2021 11:28:26
We’re paying him hundreds of thousands of pounds a week, people on here have wondered whether his campaigning has distracted him. What’s the problem here?

16 Oct 2021 11:48:35
The same can be said for Ole:

"OGS has done some good things off the pitch, but now he needs to prioritize football and deliver on the pitch".

Ole just needs to stop talking and preaching others about what they should do. It's time he looks at himself and asks some important questions.

Any word on Ole and AJH springs up from nowhere.

16 Oct 2021 13:12:31
Manager says football player should focus on football.

Hardly shocking, pretty much every professional football manager has said this about at least one player at some time.

Rashford has been out injured for a long time, now he needs to focus on his football in order for him to fully recover and get back to his top form.

16 Oct 2021 18:23:44
Totally uncalled for IMO. Let's hear him tell Ronaldo to calm down on the ads, or Pogba with all his commercial deals.

There was literally no need to say anything. Or how about say that he has no worries about Marcus and his focus on football.

Just another clown moment on long list.

I posted this a couple of days ago but it didn’t appear. So let’s try again.

The glee of Newcastle fans is ever so slightly stomach churning. We debated Saudi ownership of United a while ago and opinion was split, some of us said we would walk away from our club if we were sold to the Saudis, but it seems most football fans don’t care who owns their club as long as it brings success.

I’m not going to get into why there are issues in Saudi, if you don’t know a quick Google search will help you. I don’t like foreign ownership of any sort but we live in a global world and it’s just the way it is. However, there is foreign ownership and there is foreign ownership.

I know most Newcastle fans will be ecstatic and couldn’t care less, and they are not alone as fans of most clubs would also be celebrating. Sadly, football lost its soul years ago but this feels like a step too far. Just me?

10 Oct 2021 09:12:57
Just a quick google search will tell you what is wrong in England/ Europe. Walking away?

10 Oct 2021 09:30:36
Tony, I agree that for me Saudi state ownership would have been very uncomfortable to say the least.

That said everyone has their own set of principles and morals they must choose to live their lives by. Which should be respected, especially when in reality their individual actions/ choice will not stop larger atrocities.

For example choosing to buy an electric car so you don't have to use Saudi oil will not stop or change how they govern their state. The sad reality is that the electricity you use to charge your car may well have come from an oil burning power station that gets its oil from Saudi Arabia. These powerful entities have their fingers in many pies and you might find it very difficult verging on the impossible to avoid giving them your custom at some point.

As for the Newcastle fans, I wouldn't judge them too harshly. Especially seeing how and what our fans would be prepared to accept to win another title. While we haven't had to wait even 10% of the time Newcastle fans have been waiting.

I remember a lot was said about how "shady" Roman Abramovich was when he took charge of Chelsea, then you have Cities owners, there were concerns about FSG at Liverpool, while the amount of controversy we have over our owners shows the issues club ownership can have. Then look at the alternative a Arsenal, the scrapping and in fighting for control of the club have played a large part in them being cut away and becoming a mid-table side. When they built the Emirates it was supposed to give them the financial clout to compete with the top sides. Yet without unity over the ownership and direction of the club they are drifting. So maybe there are worse things than having a single owner, even if they have gained their money via unsavoury means. I suppose no one becomes a billionaire by being a nice guy and not taking advantage/ abusing your power and position somewhere.

Truth be told football started out on this path of selling its soul a long time ago, and our drive with merchandising means we are not blameless. some might even consider us one of the main drivers of it.

10 Oct 2021 11:00:12
Although I the owners record is poor with various things, the sale has been approved so we will have to accept it. Think it will be a longer process than some fans think, but the Newcastle supporters just want to see progress and an attempt to succeed. What they must avoid is mercenaries who are only there for the money. Build in stages would be their best option, buy players to get them to the top 8 and then add from there. They don’t have a quick fix. I’m happy for them as Ashley was a total pest.

10 Oct 2021 12:50:32
Tony, if a front for the German govt had bought over our club in the 30s, some people on here would have just shrugged and said, 'who are we to judge'. Pot kettle blah blah blah.

11 Oct 2021 06:14:11
When clubs win trophies the supporters rarely care who the owners are, ours included.

14 Oct 2021 14:46:14
99% i'd say grim the other 1% will have the courage of their convictions and stay true to their beliefs.

07 Oct 2021 15:38:13
In my opinion there are 3 main areas that need addressing. 1st we desperately need a controlling midfielder. The likes of Veratti. Doesn't have to be defensive as you attack and defend as a unit. 2nd are the fullbacks or rather how they are used. All the top sides fullbacks receive the ball whilst they are on the move, the ball is played to 2 yards in front of them. When ours receive it they are static, so attacks have slowed down before they have started and end up either playing it sideways or backwards. 3rd is the management. Ole is way out of his depth and at the last couple of home games the groans have been getting louder at both Fred and Ole. But as was pointed out on here don't blame Ole, the fault lies at those who appoint.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Oct 2021 06:31:27
junctionred, yes the board did get it wrong appointing Ole but he has been given all the resources to be successful as well.

You can't use that as an excuse to not blame/ criticize Ole for all his shortcomings and mistakes that he keeps repeating.

It's like let's not blame Fred who is just not good enough instead blame Jose for signing him ?.

When you are in a responsible position either you learn, improve and make the most of it or walk away wisely accepting you're not good enough.

If you do neither then be ready to take the blame and criticism and worse be ready to get fired.

15 Oct 2021 10:44:09
I don't think Jose signed Fred. He seems like an Ed signing.

Sorry didn’t think it was a bad post or offensive but apologies if it was.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

"Old Trafford, that used to be the Theatre of Dreams. Right now it is more like nightmares than dreams.

"Their performance is pathetic at the moment. They just don't play good football.

"Jadon Sancho is way behind expectations which I don't understand.

"With Varane, they have a good player that has a lot of experience and with Ronaldo they have one who knows the Premier League.

"I thought it would not take long to integrate that into the team. I believe the pressure on the manager will grow a lot.

"I believe it is only a matter of when, not if, they sack him because he has been there for too long and you don't see any progress. They still play the same football that is not good to watch, that is not Manchester United.

"I think there will be a change of manager soon. Whether the new manager will be able to utilise their entire potential, we will have to see.

"But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not capable of that right now. "

It appears the Newcastle ownership could be sorted today. We have to say well done to our decision makers on the board in extending Ole and his coaches contracts to prevent Newcastle enticing them all up to the North East. Phew, surely they would have been banging on Oles door? Those wins in Norways pub league and that Cardiff experience would make the Saudi buyers salivate I am sure.

The big 6, will soon become the big 7.

07 Oct 2021 11:47:36
Love United

If they spend a lot of money at Newcastle, get in a decent manager then they could well push into our place in the top four. It happened with City.

07 Oct 2021 11:48:59
Interesting to see how this pans out as Newcastle is pretty remote and I would suspect less attractive than Manchester. However, money talks so I guess they will have plenty.

Doesnt augur well for Brucey, perhaps we can line him up for when Ole goes.

07 Oct 2021 12:19:53
@Redman. I won't be surprised if they win a league title before we do. What do the other posters think? Will Newcastle United win a league title before we do.

07 Oct 2021 15:05:08
No they won't. We will win a League title before them.

07 Oct 2021 21:11:22
I don’t think it’s the same as when city did it because of FFP rules now but over time they should really improve and become a good side. It is whether they can gradually move up the levels but it might take a bit of time. I’d hope we will win a league title before they do but who knows, they are starting from a fairly low starting point but they do have a great loyal fan base.

08 Oct 2021 06:57:19
It will take them time to challenge the top 4. The need to stay in the PL first. That might prove to be harder.

They need to ensure the club is correctly set up like City etc. Although I wonder if their stadium will name will change again. A lucrative stadium deal will be better for the FFP rules.

Phil Jones might get his dream move to Newcastle now. after all they can afford his medical bills now.

08 Oct 2021 07:09:33
I spent time living in Newcastle, it's a great city and the Newcastle fans are fantastic. Always welcoming and a great crack. Watched a few United Vs Newcastle games in the pub up there and it was a fantastic experience. So I have a little soft spot for Newcastle.

I personally wouldn't want the Saudi's to own our club, they have a terrible reputation and it seems they are trying to buy an EPL club to improve their image in the west. That said they will likely lavish Newcastle with riches and make them a top side. I don't hold that against them. I hope the Geordies get a team they can enjoy watching.

If they do get the deal over the line and they do turn Newcastle into a force then great, it just throws down the gauntlet to our club. I hope we are brave enough to pick it up.

08 Oct 2021 13:55:52
Shappy- mustve been newcastle under Lyme! Born bred and live in the nirtheast mate and there are gooduns but they are old lemons- bitter as f**K and toxic. The only positive is the night life - if your lucky enough to pull a stunner you don't have to carry her coat- she disnt wear one!

06 Oct 2021 20:49:49
Was thinking earlier about the reason behind taking Cavani off on Saturday seemed a strange decision to me. Anyway got me thinking about the possibility of playing a diamond with Both Ronaldo and Cavani upfront, obviously means dropping Pogba in favour of Rashford on the left but I think it would be a really exciting line up. Would appreciate people's thoughts on this?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2021 11:15:51
I’d assume he took him off because he hasn’t had many minutes and the plan was always to give him 50-60 minutes in his first start back and Ronaldo the rest of the game as Ronaldo was knackered on Wednesday.

Anything is worth a try at the minute,
