Good short video here (less than 4 minutes) on the BBC with Hojland.

He talks so well, is a united fan, talks positively about Mainoo and Garnacho, and his captain.

I really like him.

Really enjoyed watching Erik’s latest interviews and press conferences to be honest too.

His interview with Gary Nev is good. I really like him and really want him to succeed, but sadly I think his time is over.

I wish ETH had taken this approach to press conferences a lot earlier in his tenure. It'll be interesting to see Slot in the conferences and how the media are towards him.

To be honest Eric I think the opposite.

The fact the club sanctioned this interview so close to the end of the season suggests that he might stay on as manager. It would be quite embarrassing to push such an extensive interview out, only to sack him in a few weeks. Then again, we are quite an embarrassment of a club.

Logic hasn’t aplied at Old Trafford for years Kurtis!

I hope
He stays on and gets the chance to work under a proper structure

Yes he has made mistakes but he’s not a rubbish manager

You don’t work with pep and not learn anything.

Give him a chance with the new structure

What’s another season or 2 we’ve had 10 years of dross anyway.

Just saw it and he came across honest, realistic and comfortable. He would not throw anyone under the bus interesting enough even the previous management or players. Neville gave him the opening even saying as a right back when he watches our wingers none of them defensively help the midfielders or fullbacks but eth would not bite.

Eth seemed to emphasis stability at the back or unstable as you would have it as a core of many of our issues. seems to think a left footed CB is must in the way he wants to play. He loves FDJ and clarified how some players at United are not designed to play like his ajax players and he has to adapt.

He also seemed to say going defensive and sitting back because of our injuries was going backwards and the plan was to basically play the way we have as part of the progression to and end goal.

He acknowledged it is yielding too many shots against and wants this system to get ingrained with the players as part of the change of style. Whether you like him or not he believes with some improvements in the summer and return of players from injuries we will get a lot better.

One thing that is clear is that english is not a natural language for him and he struggles to explain some of his thoughts with the right words.

Only a couple of months to find out if he is staying or going.

Yes agreed Ahmad, Neville was doing all he could to get that click bait headline but ETH handled the questions really well.

He’s clearly got his head screwed on. Like others that have come and gone before him, his career should not be defined by such a poorly run club.

8.) 03 May 2024 17:08:28
Thought Neville was poor tbh, really got to look at whether ETH is the best interviewee to the get the best out of the interviewer!

9.) 03 May 2024 18:58:01
The guy is from a really provincial part of Holland. It would be like me talking to someone from Belfast. You have to make allowances for where someone is from. I'd sound like a total hick on national TV ?‍♂️.

10.) 03 May 2024 23:31:02
I thought he handled the interview very well. He comes across as a very dedicated hard working guy.

11.) 04 May 2024 00:22:04
Not sure why his ability to speak English is a problem? Go to Holland and try to speak Dutch in an interview. He speaks English well, better than most non native English speakers

12.) 04 May 2024 12:24:05

Not a problem for me but people will hang on to some of the things he says and criticize him for it. You can see he is searching to find some of the words to explain things not being a natural english speaker.

13.) 04 May 2024 20:26:23
If Erik is to stay, they need an improved structure to help him woth coaching too, not just with transfers/ recruitment. A proper medical and physio department, fitness coach (apparently we don’t have one), set piece/ defensive coach, and a forward coach that turns up on time.

Align the vision, play the tactics that are set out, and play players to suit it accordingly. If there are certain members of the squad who are proving to be unable to tow the club line, they should be sold immediately, regardless of who they are.

I’m was very much undecided on ten Hag. But if Ed2 says he should go, that’s all I need to know.

Would anyone be interested in trying to pinch Emery? He seems to do well wherever he goes, playing good football.

Is it as simple as win the cup and stay, lose against city and he's out do you think?

There was a moment, when 4-0 up in added time, one of players gave the ball away high up on the left and despite looking knackered worked really hard to win it back. That's a winners mentality there, and what most of us miss seeing regularly!

I'm guessing they've trimmed the wage bill a bit too with some big earners moved on. Anyone know how much was bought in from sales?

I have to agree with Chris1. Last season was utter dross. And seasons before were dull for long periods. The squad may not be title challengers but for some of the season at least I have enjoyed watching and listening to the games again. As a fan that is what is important to me. We may have had some big meltdowns but I was never expecting a miracle 1st season. The cup win and cup final to look forward to are surely more successful than the last few years? And we could just as easily finish 3rd this season which is something Fergie did a few times.
3rd, 1 trophy, another final is far more than I was expecting at the start of the season. Enjoyment was my requirement and that's been met.
