Joel Glazer has walked away from the Fernandes deal because he has refused to meet the asking price. In that case why did we bother in the first place?

As ed02 correctly points out we are a bunch of amateurs playing a game of running a football club.

If this player was wanted by OGS, as he claims he has the final say, then why on earth have we not recruited him, as his club are willing to sell.

We now have 1 week to bring someone in or we risk running the gauntlet of a threadbare squad picking up more injuries.

The glazers don't make football decisions, normally its matt judge who deals with the transfers.

{Ed002's Note - In what respect?}

You really believe Joel Glazer has done that?

Well it is in the Mail, I normally treat their headlines as BS but every now and again they get one right!

The financial aspect of the deal?

Matt Judge deals with the player contracts and negotiations, who we go for is decided by Ole and the deputies after recommendations from the scouting department. Woodward and Glazers sign off the deal.

When Jose was removed the club sold the fans a story, they appointed Ole as interim manager whilst taking their time to find a permanent manager AND director of football. This was the plan, they were taking their time and not going to make any rushed decisions, they were going to get this right?

After only 2 months of some great results Ole gets the job full time, roughly around the same time as Pogba decides he wants to leave, again! Then this is followed by 2 months of appalling results to the end of the season.

Then in the close season 2 experienced strikers left plus 2 experienced midfielders, being Herrera and Fellaini (who went in Jan), without being replaced and still no director of football.

In comes James, a rookie, Wan-Bissaka, who could possibly become a very good full back and Maguire, a definite upgrade to the centre of defence. The club announce they are relying on youth and speed and this is the future we are seeing today.

When there is space we can exploit it with our pace but we are young and inconsistent and when there is little space we struggle, as we lack experience and guile to open up the lesser teams.

For me the board should have stuck to plan A and found a manager with the experience to realise you need more to your game than just looking for the pace of your forwards. I just hope that the team starts to show signs of consistency in the second half of the season and Ole can work with what we have to help achieve this. Although I do fear he is out of his depth and if the board fear the same they should not hesitate to replace him with an experienced manager.

I too felt and worried that he was probably out of his depth but I think he has proved me wrong and I really hope it remains so.

I can see improvement throughout the team, LS has had a great run of form at left back, AM is playing at a more consistent level than he ever has and as for Fred I'm almost speechless. Plus the signings he has made have all been positive.

Come on Ole.

I actually wanted him as manager and he had to be better then LVG? I thought JM would get us back to the top and if he had of been backed who knows but I was wrong, very wrong.

scoobydog is more far sighted than me, as now I know, it was a poor decision to employ him. It was all about Jose and Jose, players being told publicly what they had done wrong, how many times did he mention he'd won the prem?

Ighalo will be to the benefit of AM and help him improve his game when playing through the centre.

I think Ole has been quite cute with how he is trying to get AM playing, trying to get him in to the box earlier and encouraging him to play more central. AM has always drifted out left and too often dropped out of the game which Ole recognises as sinful for such a talented player.

Good question GD, I would hope he'd have to earn a place rather than just walk back into the side.

Also so agree re Fred, he is an important player for us and personally I can't see Pogba matching his effort, can anyone?

It is hard not to pick all Utd players as Utd have been so dominant, until recently that is!

Giggs, Scholes, Rooney, Shearer and Gerrard.
