Re: Season 2021/22

I did fear something like this would happen, they have been awful defensively all season.

Stayed until the whistle all the same.

It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Re: Season 2021/22

Obviously l am pretty happy with the result but the question is what are Man Utd going to do from here as some are saying Ole is out of his depth and others are saying its the players who are at fault.

Sacking managers willy nilly is generally not United's style.

Well they did go through quite a few after Busby retired. And Moyes, Van Gaal and Jose have come and gone in fairly quick succession.

If you recall I was never in the “give Ole the job” camp.

Yes even my poor memory tells me that you were not a fan of the club appointing Ole.

United have plenty of talented players but are not a team unit and l find it baffling why they paid all that money for Sancho and yet he sits in the stand.

Not sure who you'd actually end up with though.


Man Utd may be more successful, but the Newcastle job is probably going to be seen as more attractive (and even then I'm not sure who they would get), and maybe even an easier task with more money to spend and more chance to actually rip up what's already there.


But whoever takes the Man U job will still probably have to do it with the likes of Rashford, Pogba, Ronaldo, etc as key players in their system and probably less money to play with to improve the team.



I didn't like his antics, but there was no doubt that Fergie was a first-rate manager, one of the greatest ever (if only Clough had been at a bigger club) and was going to be a hard act to replace, but they really have made such a fist up of it, van Gaal was probably the best but even then he didn't do much, Jose was a busted flush after leaving Chelsea the second time, his style just doesn't last for the time they needed, and Ole was an easy option who hadn't done so well at Cardiff in his only other job in this league system. Moyes needed more than a season but was always going to end up a fall guy. Though saying that Fergie even had real issues with replacing didn't he, took him ages to get a decent keeper to begin with, and when he left, they had the same issues, quite why they thought Mark Bosnich (a player they knew from having him before) had the right attitude to replace Schmeichel, then that Italian was just a joke, Barthez was too error prone, van der Sar was the keeper they should have got 5 years earlier, even de Gea isn't that convincing really.



And we lost 4-0 with Fulham only having 3 shots on target.

Re: Season 2021/22

Ole in

Imagine resting your first team for your cup final and then losing in Holland and East London

Re: Season 2021/22

Just noticed a shock result in German cup comp, Borussia MGB 5 - 0 Bayern Munich.

First thoughts, Bayern put a weak side out but no full strength squad.

Not sure they would go for him (or indeed Megson, though that would at least be comedy).
