Fabrizio Romano

"Manchester United internal talks. Main part of board [Sir Alex Ferguson too] wants to give Solskjær another chance to be in charge for Tottenham game.

Pressure still high around Ole. No official talks with Antonio Conte - but he’d accept the job in the next days too. "

Humiliating defeat to our fiercest rivals and they want to give him another chance?



1.) 26 Oct 2021 12:09:42
Love S'Alex. Best ever manager and responsible for blooding through countless legends, along with the GOAT CR7. Played real football, was always in charge, took no rubbish and his record is impeccable. Not to mention his record before arriving at United. Love and respect him.


If we keep involving him in moving the club forward, then we are going to find it hard to move forward. Too much of a renaissance with the past. Ole, Fletcher, Carrick and Phelan. I was, and still am, excited by CR 7 returning. I do take on board its a step backwards, but everyone talks about 'go and get Harry Kane, he guarantees 25-30 goals every season. ' Ronaldo does exactly the same, but brings more revenue. He just doesn't get the supply - because the manager and his coaches don't know how to set the team up.

The point of him returning is to score goals. he's only going to continue to decline as he gets older, despite his fantastic shape and athleticism. We don't have time to give ole until the end of the season, otherwise what was the point in signing Ronaldo? You could argue Mason, Rashford and Sancho have their best years ahead so waiting a year isn't too bad. However with Ole in charge, I am confident we will not finish in the top 4. Once we meet a strong team in Europe, we will be out and probably out of Europa (as a means to get CL next year) . No chance of winning the FA Cup. Don't forget, we have still yet to play Chelsea/ ManCity TWICE and Liverpool AWAY. Can you see us getting more than maybe 2-4 points, from a total of 15? The league is done. This is truly a rescue mission for someone. On paper we have got some worldies but if the manager can't do his job - MANAGE - then what's the point. If i couldn't do my job, on substantially less money than Ole, I would be told to jog on.

The only reason we are a 'top 4' club is because of our spending power - make no mistake we are not a top 4 club currently because of our football. We are a joke of club right now, from the top down to Freds passing range and Maguires defending ability. £80mil this guy cost us - for what.

If he stays in charge, he has to do something different. Drop Maguire for Bailly, put in VDB, play Cavani - just do something different because the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!

Rant over.

2.) 26 Oct 2021 12:52:46
Fantastic post Singh.
As Ed002 said several times we are run by amateurs.

3.) 26 Oct 2021 12:53:29
He will be so frightened of losing on Saturday, he'll play both Henderson and De Gea in goal, 6 defenders, McFred and Ronaldo
. and he still get a thrashing.

4.) 26 Oct 2021 13:16:13
Jonny Blaze, has an exception being made to have 2 GKs in that game? That will be a first.

He will just do the usual or maybe go all out to prove himself.

The real worry is how many of the players are on his side willing to fight for him on the pitch.

5.) 26 Oct 2021 14:17:15
Is it normal Eds that a manager doesn’t attend training which is being talked about OGS?

{Ed002's Note - Coaches attend training - managers will do but perhaps not all of the time.}

6.) 26 Oct 2021 17:27:24
Is OGS the head coach or manager?

{Ed002's Note - Manager.}

7.) 26 Oct 2021 23:00:08
Does Klopp attend training Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

8.) 27 Oct 2021 10:46:47
I’m amazed our manager doesn’t - truly gobsmacked.

{Ed002's Note - What makes you think he doesn't?}



26 Oct 2021 06:47:19
Fabrizio Romano

"There’s no doubt on Antonio Conte decision since days. He wants Manchester United job and he’d be ready to accept. But there’s still no official proposal on the table, as things stand tonight.

Manchester United are still thiking whether sacking or not Solskjær. "

Still thinking? Just get it over with.

With the board seemingly hesitant, they might leave it too late that we are going to be without a manager in the dugout for Spurs and probably Phelan and Carrick taking over.


1.) 26 Oct 2021 08:05:07
I thinl they might just give him the spurs game, if we lose then he will be gone.

Bit strange they are contacting managers b4 sacking the current one.

2.) 26 Oct 2021 08:35:41
bolger2, I hope not.

Especially after the loss to our fierce rivals and with the persistent rumours of his sacking it will be unsettling for the players and fans alike.

It could get worse if he decides to lead the team at Spurs. Not sure the players would be quite happy with that either.

I rather have Carrick/ Phelan for the Spurs game and leave Ole alone.

3.) 26 Oct 2021 09:10:00
Like I said on the Banter page, if the club want further humiliation just keep Ole in charge for Saturday. Dead man walking and unless the decision comes out today the club start to look rudderless and more of a mess than they already are. Long past time for change.

4.) 26 Oct 2021 09:40:30
Ole is just staying on to save Nuno's job. Spurs will spank us thereby saving Nuno. We can come back Monday and discuss the same again.

5.) 26 Oct 2021 10:01:13
Come on lads. It’s Spurs ???.

6.) 26 Oct 2021 22:02:21
I think we beat spurs on saturday.



06 Mar 2021 05:30:55
Rumours of Ole getting a new contract. Is there any truth to this?

Does the board believe in him and would allow more money to be spent on players? Are we falling into the same trap where we trust and sign players to improve the squad and in the end the manager fails and the new manager has a cleaning up job to do in order to get new players in?

Hope a few in the board see some sense and don't mess around anymore.


1.) 06 Mar 2021 07:28:13
I think the board will at least wait until the end of the season and will almost certainly not be in a rush to hand him a new contract.

I'd imagine that since Utd have gone from 1st to send place with a 14 point gap between the two places might just have the board thinking he might not be good enough.

On paper, given our current form we could very easily lose all our games in March. Although I do expect us to turn things around. Leicester will benefit from not being in the EL. Ogs will play a strong team in the EL. His inability to rest key players his a worry, I do fear at the end of the season we may have a team that has run out of juice.

2.) 06 Mar 2021 07:39:03
You just need to ask "what constitutes success for the board and the owners they work for? "

While Ole might in the eyes of most fans be the worst manager we have had since Sir Alex, he looks set to be the only one to manage successive top four finishes.

Since pretty much all past United managers have been sacked when the club failed to achieve a top four finish, I think its clear what the club's ambition is.

The club are already putting out stories to dampen fans expectations in the summer transfer market. Historically they have always spent significantly less in the summers after UCL qualification has been secured. This year they get to do it but blame the C.V. for hitting finances (which it definitely has) .

We are a cash cow for our owners, their ambition is simple only invest enough to keep the money rolling in. That's why there is no investment in the stadium, as it doesn't increase revenue. They'll spend on players when they have to in order to get top four.

We are Arsenal now. Get used to it. No doubt at some point Ole will get the sack, maybe next season if he doesn't get top four, or the year after if he does. Basically he will be our manager until we fail in the eyes of the owners.

Then the next guy will come in and he'll be tasked with the same remit, get top four and keep your job. If you can win a cup or even a title then great. But they won't getting financial backing in the years they make top four, so sustained success seems unlikely.

3.) 06 Mar 2021 08:06:42
" worse manager by most fans "?
On thus site, don't mistake this site for an example if the majority of united fans.

4.) 06 Mar 2021 08:27:11
Jred, i bet its more than 70% worldwide. OGS should consider himself lucky there are no fans at OT. When the fans do come back and OGS is still in charge, there would be singing but the music will be drowned by the sound of snoring.

5.) 06 Mar 2021 09:33:17
Shappy i wouldn't say he looks set to get top 4 again if results go against us this weekend. we could be right in the dog fight of top 4 with 2nd to 7th only having 6 points difference and 3 of those teams have a game in hand on us also with 1/ 4 of a season left to play.

6.) 06 Mar 2021 11:17:36
Sadly, I think that the board views top four as a success; as evidenced by the huge disparity between our net spends when we do and don’t qualify for the Champions League. I’m sure the board would love for the team to win silverware, but they damn sure don’t want to spend the kind of money required for us to do so.

It strikes me very much as short term thinking, as while Manchester United may still be a big draw to potential sponsors right now, a few more trophyless seasons and continued boring performances will change all of that pretty quickly. The next generation of potential fans will have very little interest in supporting a side like ours and as they grow into their roles as consumers, the big sponsors will follow their lead.

7.) 06 Mar 2021 12:03:51
Good post Shap’s!

Redseven - I’m not so sure mate Spurs built themselves a solid reputation by just consistently finishing in the top 4 under Potch. Would they have built that fantastic new stadium if they had been finishing mid table so commercially it can be considered a success for some Clubs but surely this can never be tolerated at Man Utd.

Anyway I think the evidence is staring us in the face. The football is no better, results remain inconsistent Ole has always been nearer the sack than turning us into a decent outfit. In my opinion we’ve been dragged back into a dog fight for top 4 and following our Champions League capitulation I couldn’t say with any confidence that we won’t throw it away. Having said that what does finishing in the top 4 actually mean for us fans? We didn’t even get out of the group stage this season and the board have already said they’ll be no money available for transfers this summer. It probably safeguards revenue and sponsorship for the Club but it doesn’t mean we’ll be able to compete next year.

I’m depressed we’re not going anywhere quick and if the best we can look forward to is Champions League football whilst playing safe, percentage football to achieve it watching Liverpool and City winning the major honours then welcome to purgatory, welcome to the post SAF apocalypse, welcome to Manchester United.

8.) 06 Mar 2021 15:00:25
If the purse strings are to be tightened next year, then is it not even more imperative that we have a coach who is actually good at coaching and improving players?

9.) 06 Mar 2021 16:49:25
I second that notion Mumbles. Get rid of the "INEPT ONE". Get a proper coach.

10.) 06 Mar 2021 18:07:21
I strongly suspect manager severance packages are tied in to UCL qualification. Ergo if we finish top 4 it would likely cost more to sack the manager.

But like I said, it really doesn't matter what style we play to the owners. They don't watch the matches, they just want the money that UCL qualification brings in, along with the tied in sponsorship deals.

As long as the manager achieves that he will be here as our manager.

{Ed014's Note - long may it continue 😉

11.) 07 Mar 2021 12:33:59
I think the 'United are Arsenal now' comment is spot on. None of us like it but the reality for a long time has been winning silverware is not imperative from the owners perspective. We are having a strange season in that we are capable of scoring 9 but yet conceding 6. We all know we are a way short on quality at CB and arguably need to buy 2 class CBs whereas financially we will struggle to get one. I do think a settled defensive triumvirate (Henderson - Maguire - then Torres or Varane) would transform this side offensively also. And that for me is the key position we have to fill. Any thought of buying Sancho, Haaland or Grealish is just a pipe dream though. The view will be Amad on RW and Greenwood at CF will save us £150-200m which we just don't have to spend. The only way I see us buying anyone is if we can generate some cash from De Gea, Martial and Pogba leaving. Achieving Top 4 is our minimum requirement given the Champions League revenue it generates but providing Ole achieves that I don't think he is going anywhere.

12.) 08 Mar 2021 01:51:28
We might be Arsenal but Arsenal are more like Stoke, mid table obscurity.

13.) 08 Mar 2021 07:37:01
Agree with GDS2 here, Arsenal are a weaker squad with a manager no better than our own. Have a bit of respect for us 😂.

14.) 08 Mar 2021 07:52:06
Okay, I'll revise that, we are Arsenal of 10 years ago. A declining club that used to challenge for titles, but now it's main aim is the top four trophy 😂.

15.) 08 Mar 2021 08:02:15
God arsenal would probably be very lucky to achieve top four on current form. I think shappy was referring to the old arsenal, when they where a decent side.

{Ed077's Note - they would probably want a open top, bus parade if that happened😂😂

16.) 08 Mar 2021 09:12:39
77 😂 😂 😂

It does make me laugh though how Ole cops a lot of stick while Arteta quietly continues to underachieve and gets away with it.

{Ed077's Note - because sadly for them, their standards have fallen so far that its not that relevant anymore. Thats just the proof that accepting mediocrity for long period just ends up making you bang average.

17.) 08 Mar 2021 13:29:23
God. Please don't let that happen to us 🙏, just being content with top four is not enough🤔😡 hopefully the glaziers have enjoyed the success of TNEP and push for some for us.



17 Feb 2021 03:19:45
Ed's do we still have an interest in Benoît Badiashile (CB) or are we looking at a more experienced option in the summer?


{Ed002's Note - The interest is in others.}

1.) 17 Feb 2021 10:42:13
Ed said previously that our top targets are Pau Torres and Ben White.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

2.) 17 Feb 2021 10:30:16
Hi again Ed002.
Pau Torres the preferred target as I understand it from previous posts.
The Seville CB Kounde is being reported as also being a new target for OGS, anything in this from what you know?

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

3.) 17 Feb 2021 12:51:47
Thanks Ed002.

4.) 17 Feb 2021 13:05:25
Here are some of the recent updates on CBs as provided by Ed002, to whom I would like to say a big THANK YOU.

{Ed002's Note - Pau Torres (CB) Manchester City have him as an option. Manchester United have him as first choice but only if sufficient sales are made. Barcelona has a sustained interest but price will likely be an issue and they may look to horse trade some players - but little will become clear before the election is completed. Bayern Munich have him as one of three primary targets to fill the two CB slots they need to address in the summer.

Ben White (CB) an alternative to Pau Torres for Manchester United, but seen as expensive because of the "English premium". Spurs have sustained interest but the funding will go on other priorities. Liverpool could look to white to boost their HG quota if they opt for aan expensive addition. Brighton will look to hang on to him.

Sergio Ramos (CB) PSG wanted a January agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer but the player is apparently reluctant to commit just yet. Real Madrid want to extend his contract but want to reduce the package he currently gets to help their quest to cut costs - if that gap can somehow be resolved it is the most likely solution. Interest from both the Far East and the Middle East is not attractive for the player. Milan offer a potential option because of tax advantages in Italy - but they will probably add Fikayo Tomori and it is likely the second CB they are looking for will be younger. Whilst the Premier League would provide an interesting challenge for the player, at just about 35 years old with significant wage demands it makes little sense for the clubs. I am not aware of any approach from Manchester United and would expect them to look at a younger long term solution.

Jules Kounde (CB) Sevilla rejected a significant offer from Manchester City last summer and Monchi has confirmed that Manchetser City remain keen still. He was recommended to Manchester United by an advisor but there has not been any approach just yet - and others seem more likely at this time. Real Madrid were the other side who were keen last summer and they are looking to add two CBs this summer with one agreed in principle, the other will be one of four on their shortlist which includes Jules Kounde. With one of those four likely not obtainable it would then come down to balancing the books with other sales and purchases.

Ibrahima Konate (CB) could emerge as an option for first choice for Liverpool in the summer - Liverpool have been talking with his agent but whether or not Konate has been discussed in detail is not known, but his agent offered a different player to Liverpool. RBL will want to hang on to him as they will lose Upamecano in the summer. Money would possibly be an issue for Liverpool and any further illegal approaches to RBL players would no doubt result in a complaint now. Expect interest from Spurs as well and possibly Manchester United but he is far from first choice for them. Chelsea have shown no interest in him to date.

Raphael Varane (CB) and that is about it for CBs. If he does not sign a renewal he will be sold in the summer - possibly leaving Real Madrid needing to add three CBs. Manchester United have other targets but could be tempted. Do not be surprised to see Spurs rejig their summer plans to buy him. Mr Mourinho will look to a way to sign Varane for Spurs in the summer. The player wants a new challenge and PSG will likely push for him in their quest for a leading French player. }.

5.) 17 Feb 2021 13:45:37
Really like the look of Jules Kounde out of this lot. But then again he is an 'emerging' talent, relatively inexperienced in a weak league, and in the notoriously physical PL, I wonder if a more established player is required.

6.) 17 Feb 2021 13:48:11
Thanks for that Deependra.

7.) 17 Feb 2021 14:14:52
Thanks Deependra!

Is there anything to on the DoF front? I’ve read about the guy from Monaco, has there been anything more said by the Eds?

8.) 17 Feb 2021 19:51:43
+1 deeps.

9.) 19 Feb 2021 14:25:23
Another one to add courtesy of ED002. Again a Big Thank you to him for his great insights.

{Ed002's Note - Nikola Milenkovic (CB) Inter Milan, Manchester United and Juventus have all expressed and interest in Milenkovic who Fiorentina will possibly be open to selling for €50M-€60M in the summer. His representatives are pushing him toward Manchester United who already have a lengthy list of targets and their prior interest could return - he was an alternative to Maguire. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time. }.

10.) 19 Feb 2021 14:52:26
From the list only Pau Torres/ Benoît Badiashile are left footed CBs and exactly what we need.

Watched a few youtube videos of these players and not much convinced about Jules Kounde, he looks like a attacking CB who is probably more suited to a fluid attacking team. Both Pau Torres and Nikola Milenkovic look better options for us. Nikola Milenkovic reminds me of Vidic the way he plays, gets stuck into his opponent and is more aggressive than Torres.



17 Feb 2021 03:01:43
Ed's do we have any interest in André Silva (ST) from Frankfurt? Looks a good fit for us.


{Ed002's Note - Andre Silva (S) was recommended to several clubs, certainly including Everton and Manchester United, by a very high-end independent scout who used to play in the Premier League. This dates back to last summer before his loan became a permanent move.}

1.) 17 Feb 2021 12:51:13
Thanks Ed002. Are we still interested though?

{Ed002's Note - I only know what I have written which probably means that MU have not approached his club - where he only signed a few months ago.}

2.) 17 Feb 2021 13:41:08
Ok Thanks Ed002.

Just watched Craig Burley's reaction to Ole's sacking on ESPN FC.

He was honest and spot on with what he said there.


{Ed0666's Note - Craig Burley is a worse football pundit than Stevie Wonder is an eye witness. Burley and spot on will never be in the same sentence again. Him and Steve Nicol are utterly diabolical pundits on ESPN.

1.) 22 Nov 2021 10:04:00
They might be diabolical but he was correct on the Ole subject.

{Ed0666's Note - even a clock is right twice a day



02 Nov 2021 06:30:51
It seems finally DVB was on the pitch against Tottenham.

He was seen teeing of his team mates to take shots on goal in a shooting drill.

It seems Ole finally realized his potential and is using him as a prep coach before matches.

DVB should have been really proud helping out his team mates in training and the trust that Ole and his coaching staff showed him to do that.

Just pathetic how he's being treated.




28 Oct 2021 06:58:54
If Fergie coming in support of Ole wasn't enough, here comes Phil Neville with these comments aimed at people calling for his buddy to be sacked on social media:

"Social media is an absolute cesspit for people that are just the lowest of the lowest"

"We live in an era where it's seen as quite normal to ask people to be sacked, which I find absolutely incredible. If you were in any other workplace and you walked into a shop and you said, 'I want you to be sacked', I think you would be reported to the police.

"People don't probably realise that the things they are writing hurt families, hurt human beings, people that have problems in their lives, and nothing gets done about it. "

"These things happen in football. I think the sensationalism of everything now is just out of control, "

"Yes, it was probably a real sickening blow for everybody that's ever played, supported, or been involved with Manchester United. But it's not as if United have never lost 5-0 ever in history. This has happened and United bounced back and won things. "

"I lost at St. James Park 5-0. Philippe Albert chipped Peter Schmeichel and it felt no different. The only difference was there was not a billion people on Twitter thinking they knew best about this, that and the other. ”

He 's in a way justifying the loss to Liverpool as normal because it has happened in the past.

Seems Ole is far too important than any footballing rivalry.

Any other manager would have got a sack message at half time and would probably not have made it to the post match interview.

But here we still have Ole given more chances to get it right.


1.) 28 Oct 2021 08:07:53
Phil Neville is as important as any of us. Wasnt he sacked at Man Utd along with Moyes? Ole calling up everyone in his phonebook to support him and all the cracks are commenting like Phil.



25 Oct 2021 19:27:25
Fabrizio Romano :

"Man Utd. First step has to be the final decision on Solskjær by the board. Internal talks still ongoing over how to handle the crisis.

Antonio Conte would be prepared to talk with Man Utd about project, as revealed today - but there’s been still no official contact yet. "

Seems a decision could be made in the next few hours.

A lot of rumours of Ole getting sacked before the Spurs game.


1.) 25 Oct 2021 22:18:59
We can only hope. Bruce would be a better option than this fraud right now.



25 Oct 2021 14:21:26
I think Ole has taken all the criticism so far and it's now the turn of the decision makers to do him a favor and save him from further embarassment.

The board needs to swallow their pride, accept they got it wrong, thank Ole for stabilizing the club and ask him to resign.

The sooner they do is better.


{Ed014's Note - there’s no rush LPU he’s doing fine, just a little blimp on the way to his vision of the promised land.

1.) 25 Oct 2021 14:39:48
My fear now is that they don't sack him, we win a couple and suddenly we've got another 6 months of this. There's only so long the "long term project" narrative can be spun.

Lots of rumours about Conte flying around and while he's not my first choice, there's no chance a performance like yesterday would happen under his stewardship.

2.) 25 Oct 2021 15:13:30
I think they will hold on until the international break at least. Give them a couple of weeks to assess things, consider the options and remove those really tricky games from the fixture list before the new guy comes in. That way any new manager has a better chance of starting his reign with a win against Watford rather than a likely loss against City.

That would also give the new manager the international break to acclimates to his new surroundings.

if their hand is forced and he has to be sacked beforehand I would expect a caretaker manager until the international break.

Either way I don't see a white knight riding in and save us from potential humbling's against Spurs and City.

3.) 25 Oct 2021 15:40:53
If any new manager that comes in would prefer to play Watford than City then he is not the right man fit the job.
City is the ideal game to start.
Sours is actually even better because it's sooner.

4.) 25 Oct 2021 16:26:08
Ken, it's not that I think who the first game is against would impact any potential managers decision to take the job or not.

More that when Jose was sacked it was after a few "tricky" games and with a relatively easier run of games afterwards.

It's something I think the club will take into consideration. They do so much to try and keep and maintain good publicity. They won't want to dampen down the good feelings and hope of a new manager with a loss in their first game. Just like with the timing of signings nor at least the announcements of them the club do everything possible to maintain good publicity.

As the club, at least currently, haven't sounded out any potential replacements then it's safe to assume that it would take at least a week, from scouting and considering potential candidates, to sounding them out, to talks and deals put in place for the manager and any additional coaching staff they would want to bring, plus potential visas agreed and sorted in this post Brexit world. All needing to be done before any manager could take charge of training and start implementing their style and having an impact on the squad.

We have Spurs in 5 days time, so too soon for that. Then on Tuesday we play away in Italy against Atalanta, meaning any new manager would need to come in then immediately travel with the team for a key tricky UCL game. Then fly back and play City 4 days later.

If they were hired and ready to start the day after the Spurs game they will have Sunday and Monday before their first game. Neither will be a full day of training. Then they will play a game, have travel and a day of rest, at best 2 full days training then a game against City.

Meaning any new manager will have two key games and at best two days of full training to prepare for them, along with having to travel to Italy and back. Which is a bit of a baptism of fire.

That's why I think the club will wait until the international break for the change to happen, so they can have at least a week with half the squad and to acclimatise before they have to play any matches. It just makes sense.

5.) 25 Oct 2021 16:38:06
Shappy, as you say it is a tricky position to be in with the games coming up.

If Ole gets the sack soon and any new manager shows the willingness to take over he would be a brave man to do so.

It's not going to be easy either way.

Especially after the loss to our fierce rivals and with the persistent rumours of his sacking it will be unsettling for the players and fans alike.

It could get worse if he decides to lead the team at Spurs. Not sure the players would be quite happy with that either.

I rather have Carrick/ Phelan for the Spurs game and leave Ole alone.

Yes, even a clown would know better.

If Ole really wanted a DM, there would had been a plan laid out to move players out early to make space in the team which didn't happen.

It was just the opposite that we dished out new contracts to ageing players and blocked moves for some while keeping the likes of VDB who doesn't seem to be in Ole's plans anyhow.

A CB and CM should had been the priority this window with the RW a bonus signing but everyone knew what Ole's top priority was and that's Sancho.

In short the CB and RW was the priority for Ole and a CM seen as a bonus signing if it happened. There was no serious attempts to make that happen.

Shappy, we can only hope which is the least thing we got control over.

Putting yourself in the shopping window? ?

Unfortunately the board don't like people who make sense and want a drastic change at the club's structure.

Ten Haag does seem a great choice and admired by most fans but as you say the board will probably be overwhelmed with the changes that he might demand.

Poch does look a real possibility though.

AJH and Red Man,

You guys along with others have been supporting the club a lot longer than me so who do you think should be our new manager who can really take us forward?

We need to go after a young experienced manager who is ready to burst onto the scene and can bring the best out of this squad while playing a attacking brand of football.

I will take anyone who can get the team playing to its full potential and gives us a chance at winning things.

jayo84, right now what really matters is the performances on the pitch especially with a talented squad and we should be looking to take advantage of that in the first place.

If you are looking for a change at the very top it's not happening anytime soon.

The board have handed over the keys to Ole's wheels to his beloved friends. What a nice gesture ?.
