Solskjaer name had been mentioned.


{Ed002's Note - Regardless of him managing the reserves for a few years it would be high risk in my view. It would be an enormous step up from Molde so it is hard to be confident it would work.}

1.) 18 Dec 2018 14:11:01
It's a risk but then again itsxonly for the next 5 month .

{Ed002's Note - Why would he leave his job for such an offer then?}

2.) 18 Dec 2018 14:16:51
Any information that suggest that board is happy with Woodward and he will continue in his current role.
Would DOF takeover him later on the footballing front.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 15:05:46
Maybe get paid 3x the salary over the next 5 month and raise his profile .

{Ed002's Note - I think that is a pretty dreadful thing to say. You ceratinly don't deserve anyone decent at the club with so called supporters saying things like that.}

4.) 18 Dec 2018 15:11:31
We're not entitled to anyone and anything Jred.

5.) 18 Dec 2018 15:22:50
I think the guys already fairly well known an maybe he likes managing his hometown club.

6.) 18 Dec 2018 15:27:50
Isnt the whole OLE rumour based on the fact the Norweigan league shut down 3 weeks ago until March, the tabloids are jumping on the fact he is sitting at home watching countdown for 3 months so why not? (ignoring the fact he still has work to do with Molde in the off season)

7.) 18 Dec 2018 15:30:48
It's not Ole, his tenure at Cardiff was not great. Apparently it will be an ex-player. Steve Bruce anyone.

8.) 18 Dec 2018 15:35:53
Could Giggs job share with Wales?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, it gives him an excuse when things go wrong.}

9.) 18 Dec 2018 16:24:54
Hi Ed002, hope you’re well. You’ve previously mentioned Berta and Campos regarding a DOF role. Are there any further names being considered, possibly even left-field options?

{Ed002's Note - I have dealt with this at length before. Nothing has changed.}

10.) 18 Dec 2018 16:45:45
I have looked at previous posts now and you gave us some good suggestions. Thanks again, hope you have a quiet evening!

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

11.) 18 Dec 2018 17:09:25
Blanc can be the only serious contender surely?

{Ed002's Note - To a large extent the press release has been a self inflicted wound. I have no doubt that Laurent Blanc would take the job on a permanent basis but perhaps he feels his "hands would be tied" (I am paraphrasing) if he would simply be asked to coach until the end of the season with little or no control over players or transfers in January? If he really wants the full time job and I am sure that there is a concern that if he is constrained as an interim it may not go well as it could and could then potentially exclude him from the opportunity in the summer. For me is would be an excellent choice for the club in the long term. If it is going to be simply an interim role Solskjaer and Phelan may do a decent job but it means Manchester United don't have a good long time solution. OGS would need to leave his current job after MU negotiate with his club and, good or not (at the very least risky), could easily find themselves at a loose end in June. Perhaps the club should reconsider how they are looking to transition to a new coach and at least give a good opportunity to an interim coach to get the role on a full time basis.}

12.) 18 Dec 2018 18:26:18
United saying that we will appoint an external interim manager until the end of the season within 48 hours led me to believe that they had someone already lined up. If this isn't the case then why even mention it? As a precursor to any manager taking over that they're not permanent and don't expect any money in January or a say on which players stay or go?

13.) 18 Dec 2018 20:13:07
As someone who watched OGS throughout his time at cardiff (from his appointment, to the relegation and to the subsequent firing while in the championship), I can confirm that he was in my opinion the worst manager we have had in my time as a supporter. Defensively he was woeful, going forward we looked confused and overall we had absolutely no plan. He made selection decisions which absolutely mystified the fans, e. g. playing our best midfielder at left back (more shocking as he was slow and couldn't defend) . Not only were the results bad but his signings were out of their depth and he left the club in a position which we are only just now recovering from. If he does take the united job, it would surprise me if he makes it till May.

14.) 18 Dec 2018 22:16:01
Hi guys not posted on here for ages as I lost my username RRED7

Really don’t want to be sentimental and watch Ole ruin his legacy at our club, Someone who can cement the players and instantly have their respect would be the candidate for me and Blanc I think fits that bill. He would probably regardless of your opinion of him get the best from Pogba who if you believe all the rumours has been a catalyst of Jose getting the boot. I honestly think we will see a different Pogba now who will put a shift in.

I don’t like what he has done this season or today with his tweet but he has the potential played the right way to ignite us.

15.) 19 Dec 2018 07:11:07
Pogba should be next out the door.

16.) 19 Dec 2018 11:52:02
The problem with hiring Blanc for a team built around Pogba, Martial, Rashford, Lingard, Bailly, Fred, Young, Lukaku:



22 Nov 2018 15:58:43
Ed any truth in the rumour Madrid are interested in Rasford.


{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest from Real Madrid and Juventus to some extent.}

1.) 22 Nov 2018 17:00:35
Why would they want him? He's rubbish, even the great, the wonderful and the all knowing Jose Mourinho can't get the best out of him.

Clearly he can't be any good.

2.) 22 Nov 2018 16:53:22
Cheers ed.

3.) 22 Nov 2018 17:11:11
Loads a talent going to be a good player . Hopefully at United.

4.) 22 Nov 2018 18:04:24
Shappy, I think your single minded hatred is slowly damaging your reputation on here.

5.) 22 Nov 2018 20:15:39
Agreed Fresh.

6.) 22 Nov 2018 20:38:27
Be careful shaps don't want to be one of them players who just come on to have a rant about certain players .

To be fair to shappy he does make some good points about Jose and asks some Interesting questions.
That people either miss or choose to ignore .

7.) 22 Nov 2018 21:35:18
+1 Fresh.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 22:31:51
There are a lot of people don’t rate Rashford and would be happy to see him sold. Yet Madrid and Juve must see something others don’t.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 23:09:16
Played in more games than anybody else last season as a 20 yo more than players like scholes becks butt did at the same age. I think he is doing fine. The manager sees the same perhaps ajh.

10.) 22 Nov 2018 23:13:41
The reason Madrid and co are interested in Rashford it is because he is going to be cheaper then their first choice targets.

It is one thing to play in la liga and serie A then playing in the premier league.

I also think if Mourinho stays then one of Rashford or Martial is not going to get the games they want as Mourinho is under pressure to win and he won't win with two rookies who are still learning their game.

It is best for Rashfors to move to get important game time. He could even go on loan to a premier league to get game time and then come bk to our club when he is ready.

We have become a cosy club and need to be ruthless in decision making.

11.) 23 Nov 2018 00:02:46
So you think we should get rid of a rookie like martial who has scored in his last 5 games and buy who .
A world-class player like Sanchez?

Maybe Madrid and juve are interested in Rasford because they can see the potential of a 21 year old player playing for England and United.

I have taken a step back from the site to be honest because some of the views and insights really have changes from a few year back.



26 Sep 2018 10:02:11
Just read this sums it up for me

Where was the game plan, the identity, the intensity? Echoing Paul Pogba's words, the man who was unceremoniously relieved of his duties as stand-in skipper, the Stretford End chanted 'attack! attack! attack!


1.) 26 Sep 2018 10:47:54
Come on Jred don't try to think rationally.

Just blame Pogba.

After all, it's Pogba's fault Frank Lampard who has been in management since June and his team plays better ball than Jose.

It's also due to Pogba's haircut, social media antics, lack of commitment and respect to the club that made Mourinho who so much loves and respects the club say Man United have no football heritage after we lost to Sevilla.

Also, regardless that Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham were below us last season and the fact that they lost more games than us but were never outplayed by Wolves, Huddersfield, Derby and the likes at home within the matter of a few days, Mourinho had nothing to do with it. It was all Pogba's fault.

Even the fact that we cannot count 15 games we utterly dominated throughout without looking vulnerable or likely to lose the said games at a point in the last 3 years cannot be Mourinho's fault - it's all Pogba's.

That's probably why Juventus kicked him out because he's a no-good, pre-madonna who only cares about his looks, social media and running his mouth to the press.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 12:31:23
The Stretford usually chants attack attack attack and they did so last night but tbh not until in the 94th minute.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 12:36:04
Very much his scapgoat last year, herrera must be pleased it isn't him this season.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 12:49:10
pre-madonna haha love it.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 19:12:05
Keep hearing about pre-Madonna's. Do we have any post-Madonna players?

6.) 27 Sep 2018 15:25:46
What we need are current-madonnas.



27 Aug 2018 16:52:08
A lot of talk matic will play in a back 3 tonight.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 17:41:22
That's pretty much how he was utilised a lot last season anyway.

2.) 28 Aug 2018 19:41:51
And as it panned out it looked like we played nobody at the back.



01 Aug 2018 19:42:47
Ed some reports that kovacic as turned down a move to United as he  feels our playing style woukd be a bad fit with his own skills.
Any truth in it.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that. There are sides interested in him.}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 19:54:03

jred's banter posts with other poster's replies to jred's banter posts


19 Apr 2019 14:03:09
The discussion was a few months back that poor Jose could do no wrong, that infact no manager in world football could do any better than he was given the poor players he has .

Now the goal posts on this argument seem to have moved a bit, I can't remember many we should win the league with this squad, post but there was a definite disagreement as to whether Jose was getting the most out of our current squad .
So looking at it, Jose had a pretty average 26 points from 17 games .
Ole has come in and got a very respectful 38 points from 16 games .
We have moved from 11 points of top 4 to 2 points .
Gone from 2 points above this week's opponents Everton, to 18, from 2 points above Watford to 18, 1 point above wolves to 17That was the level we where at .
From ole 17 league games in charge he has so far won 12 drew 2 lost 2 .
12-2-2 is is a very good return and most would say there is still room for improvement, which tells it own story .
Are we at the level of city? No of course not they have an argument to be the best ever EPL team with a manager that is getting the most out of his set of players .
That infact was what the discussion about Jose always came back to, was he getting the most out of our squad, ole has answered that question, this squad is far better than what we saw under Jose, no matter how far people want to move the goal posts.


1.) 19 Apr 2019 14:22:33
Good point well said jred.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 14:50:56
Jred with all due respect your posts are getting boring. You really need to Get over comparing Ole to Jose.

Jose has been a serial winner and he will continue to win trophirs and prove you wrong. Jose didn't get the support from the club but he still won us more trophies then anyone since Fergie has left.

Your so called Guardiola ripped the team up and yet the reason he has come to england is to ein the champions league and he has failed on two occasions.

Pellegrini won the title with them with a inferior squad so you can't come on here and say Guardiola has turned them into the best in the world. They can't be the best in the world if they are not in the champions league final.

Ole might or might not work out but you really need to stop compparing as it just sounds like you just want Ole to do well so you can come on here an prove your point.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 14:52:38
I'm not sure who's moved the goal posts. Jose did get the best out of the squad last season in finishing 2nd. This season for a number of reasons he didn't. Ole came in and has got more out of them. But it hasn't been enough due to a combination of some players not being up to the task and some players believing their better than the task.

4.) 19 Apr 2019 15:10:16
Last season he did finishing second was pretty good, the table never lies, second best in the epl and I still think there was room for improvement.
This season he definitely never and as I said at the top of my post a few months back the argument was Jose or no other manager could do better .
I seem to have hit a nerve with the mention of Jose, the justification of Jose being a great manager is actually behind a lot of the above.
I would argue pep was brought in to take city to the next level, which he has .
Who said anything about city being the best in the world? But they do have an argument to be the best epl side ever due to the fact they won a record amount of points last season .
Will Jose win trophies at another club? Maybe but if he wins 3 trebles it won't change the fact he was probably the wrong man for United.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 15:17:28
Nobody has moved the goal posts.
Ole started well with the team no doubt. Lots of feel good factor and momentum.
But the players have reverted to type. 6 losses in last 8 games is well below what they were achieving at the beginning of our season. But you only want to talk about the early performances.
We were 4th and are now 6th.
Because the squad simply cannot sustain consistency no matter where you move the goal posts to. In last 6 games we have lost 6 points to city 5 to liverpool which is on par with how many jose was losing in the 1st 18 games.
You need to accept you are wrong ole says you are. Jose said you are every pundit says you are the results say you are nearly 90% on here say you are but you keep living your ostrich like existence.

There are plenty if individuals you could put from our team into city or Barcelona and they would do fine but as a collective our squad is a shambles.
2nd last year was a huge over achievement. Jose over achieved in terms of results considering the squad at his disposal.

6.) 19 Apr 2019 15:34:41
Ken I'm concentrating on all the league games no just the ones that suit my argument.
All 16 of them. 38 points from 16 games 12 wins 2 draws 2 defeats.
Jose got 26 from 17 that's not opion its fact .
This squad is far better than what we saw under Jose this season far better than 26 points from 17 games .
Yourself and others argued we shouldn't get rid of jose as he was doing the best with the players and squad he had . Ole has shown that's not the case .
Now as you can see from Singh post you need to be careful if you criticise jose, as some get upset . But the facts are the facts .

Some said jose or any other manager could do better with this squad .
Some said the squad was underperforming.
No one said we should win the league with this squad but a few myself included said we should be doing better .
This discussing was always about Jose, ole has then come in done better than him and the goal post have been moved .

As for this poll you keep going on about I haven't seen a single post from anyone that has said if we don't buy any players we would win the league next season .

7.) 19 Apr 2019 16:44:40
I'm more worried about the last few games. Form is temporary and all that.

8.) 19 Apr 2019 16:53:12
Lol I am not upset. I just find your posts funny now a days and i thought i might as well tell you to relax and hold on to your horse and stop comparing jose did 17 points in 16 games and Ole did 25 points in 16 games or whatever you point you keep on mentioning.

The bottom line is when a new manager comes the performances go up as they probably didn't like the previous manager but you can see now that some of the playwrs are not upto thw standards of City and Liverpool and that is thw reason we are 6th and not because we had Jose.

But anyways each to their own and you keep on posting whatever you wish.

9.) 19 Apr 2019 17:07:02
Ok that must of been it .



06 Mar 2019 22:38:56
5 more points in the Epl than any other team since ole took over and just knocked PSG out the CL.


1.) 06 Mar 2019 23:30:46
Smalling was man of the match for me tonight close run thing with shaw fred and lukaku. But its hard to single anybody. With 10 players out and to claw back a 2 nil deficit and be flying in the league is a superb managerial performance.
Full credit to all the coaching staff to the manager and pretty much every player in the squad.
Our best players are playing very well and our lesser talented players are playing above themselves. Ole has them believing anything and everything us possible.
He has been nearly foot perfect since the day he started. He oozes class in every aspect of the job so far.

2.) 07 Mar 2019 04:34:15
Sounds like things are going ok Jred 😊.

3.) 07 Mar 2019 07:57:09
Ken out players are playing to there potential. You just couldn't see it.

4.) 07 Mar 2019 13:54:49
No jred they are playing above themselves. don't be naive.
If that team played psg 10 times they would lose 8 or 9 in all probability.
To win the league we need 3 or 4 more players.
We know the squad we have were 2nd but 2nd is not what we want.



27 Feb 2019 21:16:09
Great to see lukaku back in the goals, will do him the world of good as he has looked liw in confidence of late .
Lot been said about him not fitting the system but i don't see that, he is an on the shoulder striker that works well in a fast tempo attacking team .
Should fit the system just been in poor form but the lad is a goalscorer.


1.) 27 Feb 2019 21:37:48
Mctominay is impressive tonight too, really surprised by the performance so far!

2.) 27 Feb 2019 21:49:56
Lukaku scores goals. He is playing in a different system tonight to the one he looked out of sorts in to be fair but anyone who doubts whether lukaku will score if given chances would be wrong.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 21:53:15
Shaw very good again.

4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:23:19
Lukaku scores goals I don’t think anyone denies that. But his touch is horrific and he loses the ball a lot and affects the fluidity of the attack to often.

{Ed002's Note - What a pity he scores goals.}

5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:27:36
He was bought to score goals. I guess you’d rather we signed someone who has exceptional control but can't score as it would Benefit out fluidity.

6.) 28 Feb 2019 05:20:09
Each player has their own weaknesses and strengths.
Lukaku has improved a bit in build up play but his first touch is the one that let's him down.
He is a good option to have in our forward lineup.

7.) 28 Feb 2019 07:27:24
MDL, your allowed to be a goal scorer and have a decent touch. It’s not one or the other. He is poor often when he plays a lot.



25 Feb 2019 03:50:09
How good was shaw today . Really starting to show what a top player he is going to be.


1.) 25 Feb 2019 07:06:39
Deffo jred. He's been playing like that for a while now so it was nice for him to finally pick up that MOM. Amazing what a good kick up the backside can do.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 07:26:32
Outstanding in the last 2 games. Really Impressed. His defending has come on in leaps and bounds.

3.) 25 Feb 2019 08:04:37
Absolutely. Shaw kept Salah in his pocket.
Didn't give him a sniff.

4.) 25 Feb 2019 09:14:54
Absolutely outstanding performance from shaw. Next step is to add more assists to his game.

5.) 25 Feb 2019 09:30:08
I would have sold him last summer. I didn't think he had the right attitude to be a United player. Happy to say that he's proving me wrong.

6.) 25 Feb 2019 10:16:11
Absolute class.

7.) 25 Feb 2019 17:06:18
Agreed Mort. But he has knuckled down incredibly well.



14 Feb 2019 05:36:02
Dear me what a difference 1 game makes .


1.) 14 Feb 2019 06:42:24
Agree. Don’t understand why there is so much criticism. Fine we lost a game. But it’s not the end of the world. It’s not like we are strong enough to be challenging the CL trophy. I believe the focus should be:
1. Ensure we continue with momentum and be top 4 in PL.
2. Try to go as far as possible in FA Cup and win if possible.
3. Go as far as possible in CL this season.
Those would be the priorities I feel in that order.
We have a good team but by no means a team to be challenging on all fronts. We have not been doing too well for the last 5 years and I would think just because we have a new manager (OGS or anyone else) we would suddenly be the top team in a flash. I sincerely think even if we have Poch in as manager in summer there is no bloody guarantee. We still need to really beef up our defense. We have a decent midfield but can still improve. We also still need to beef up our attacking team and improve teamwork. The only position we are world class is our GK. All else will need improvement. So even if you have a world class manager we still are short.
I believe that OGS has the mentality and character to bring us forward. Beside SAF will be guiding him behind the scene. If we could also tie Phelan to 1-2 years till Carrick and team are up to standard we could then build to be become title challengers for CL title. Otherwise I think we should target and win the PL next season and possibly FA and League Cups.
That’s my humble opinion and hope we don’t slag the team just on 1 loss. There will be more to come but hopefully not crucial to knock us out of top 4. Rome certainly wasn’t built in one day.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 07:40:02
Why? What happened?

3.) 14 Feb 2019 07:44:31
Good post 666.
We don't have a squad capable of competing to win the epl or cl.
But there has been a lot of improvement from where we were under jose this season.
Tue night was no surprise to most but if we had not been so unlucky to lose 2 of the front 3 within 2 mins of each other the result might have been better.
Top 4 is the main priority.
The squad have only managed that twice in the last 5 seasons. that's the reality of where we are.
Some people put all that blame on the 3 previous managers, and yes none of them covered themselves in glory but the reality is the players are and have not been good enough either.
Ole has us moving in a better direction. The style and mood has improved along with the results. We have hit a little road bump i am sure we will see a good reaction and focus will return to the league and securing enough points to pip arsenal and chelsea to 4th.

Fernandes has said
"I like Liverpool a lot more [than Man City],  "It's a more direct [style of play], more offensive, maybe less organised, but more intense football. "
Read into what you will.
