Someone on the Football Ramble made a really good point I think in regards to Ten Haag, who most United fans now seem to want and expect in the Summer.

Basically saying that, despite his current success, he's a long way from being a sure thing when he moves on and that managing Ajax is probably the easiest job in football. This being because they base everything on bringing young players through - young players that have grown up playing the exact same system that the first team plays and are ready to slot in as soon they are good enough. That's clearly completely different to the model that United operate with, so he will need to adapt and adapt fast.

it's a good appointment long term (he's openly stated he's not really interested in being a manager these days) IF they listen to him over there

being a consultant is 'one vote', that's it, their board is shite from a football perspective it all comes down to how much power and say they allow him to have and if they buy into RR re-structuring their club from top down

with that lot i can see the tagged on two year consultancy being just the honey to get him to take on the interim post - he turned them down on monday (presumably the upstairs move was the sticking point) - will be interesting to see how all this plays out once the season is over

None of their frontline or midfield bar Sancho is ready for Gegenpressing.  Cristiano will ask for a transfer ASAP. ;D

Somebody claimed that they had realised their plan and it related to a connection with a managerial target, more likely he's there to try and clear the decks of some of the bigger mistakes like Ronaldo so the new guy doesn't have to take any flak from their idiot fans for making an obviously necessary move.

The laziest team in the league appointing a manager (even if only interim) known for gegenpressing, this should be fun.

It’s a step towards having an actual plan and some structure at the club.

I can see why 6months as manager makes sense. This season already looks like a write off, top managers probably aren't available until the summer and it’s a bigger job than just getting a new manager in. So let Ralf come in, see what’s what, ready to get stuff done in the summer.

The 2 year consultancy part is odd though. You need him running things as DOF, and for longer than 2 years given where they’re at. Instead it sounds like he’ll be passing on handy hints and advice to Darren Fletcher for him to mull over, and trying to convince the board that they need actual footballers rather than human emojis.

Unless Utd think it’s too soon to sack another “club legend” and Fletcher will be gone in the summer with Ralf taking over as DOF. That could work.

Rangnick would be fantastic at United if they had seven or eight different first team players.  What the fuck is he supposed to do with Ronaldo ?  What sort of defensive line does he employ with Maguire ?

He'll get the best out of Sancho and Rashford but half that squad will be at odds with him.

It'll be interesting but it'll take ages, longer than they'll give him.

In all seriousness though … interesting move and it will be interesting to see how things will pan out. They’re probably hoping for a Tuchel-type of turnaround. Chelsea finished fourth behind a depleted Liverpool. The Champions League was a big fluke

Manic mancs in a group chat I'm on were crowing about Klopp's AFCON comment being racist. I initially ignored them because I didn't want to dignify it with a response but I simply posted the video and asked them to read the comments if they didn't understand.

They suddenly shut up. The same people were saying that it wasn't an agenda but if they didn't have one, they would have owned up. They are very envious of our team and our manager.

Anyone who is scared by this appointment needs their head examined or at least Rangnik’s wiki page, he’s fucking shite! The only concern is if he does an absolute fluke and takes some points off us next year.

Seems so many fans getting information from sound bites and social media bollocks these days. ‘He’s the father of the pressing game’. ‘He was Klopps inspiration’. He’s been sacked from as many jobs as clubs he’s been involved in and won absolutely fuck all of note. The fact almost every fan had to google his name to find out he was an actual manager tells you everything.

The man United business model in the media is something to behold as usual. Like Ole he’ll be hyped up one week then the next it’ll be all talk of not being fit for the job, or it being to big a task, etc. I give it until Christmas for those ones.

It is quite funny all that - Wolfgang Frank is the Klopp mentor, end of story. Frank was a Sacchi obsessive, slight extension to story. Rangnik is Klopp's mate, and that's about the size of it.
