About half a billion quid spent since Fergie left and they started the same defense that lost to Basel in 2011. That's absolutely shocking. They are an awfully run club.

4 of the back 5 were brought in by Ferguson. Maybe Ole is keeping them in honour of the gaffer.

It's only because PSG choked, plus a dodgy penalty, awarded via VAR they got this far. :no

No no no, there is no need for the :no  Without that famous win against all the odds, they might not have given him the job permanently and actually gone and got a manager who knows what he is doing

They should be, but who knows?

Lets face it, Abu Dhabi are a far superior collection of mercenaries team than Oleh's boys, but the Mancs will be smarting from their Barcelona humiliation and will need to raise their game in order to keep top four hopes alive. If they have any pride left whatsoever, they really have to bust a gut against the franchise.

Liverpool are vastly superior to Everton and the table currently boasts a 39 point gap between the clubs, which should be over 40 points by the end of the season. Despite the chasm in quality and class between us and our bitter neighbours, they did manage the moral victory of a 0-0 draw against us at their place. Derbies are weird games. Abu Dhabi should wipe the floor with their neighbours because they are far better than them, but weaker teams can sometimes get a result. The Mancs actually really need to turn up for this one. Their top four aspirations and any remaining self-respect they have depends on it.

Far too many writing them off. They had (unrealistic) dreams of winning the CL, now they really need to get their fingers out to get Europa never mind CL next season. Unless things go horribly wrong next season, Us, the other Mancs and Spurs will finish top 4, so that leaves Arsenal and Chelsea scrapping with them for the last spot. They at least need Europa as an alternative path to the 2021 CL. They cannot afford to fail to qualify for the CL.

So basically they've flushed a season or two down the toilet by appointing Ole.
What a weird club they are, feeding on fumes of Ferguson like junkies, stuck in a creative vacuum with suits making football decisions and everyone passing the responsibility around. It's great fun to watch, but I've stopped assuming they will find their way through money, They could remain lost in this forest of Messiah hunting for a good long while.

I was just having a peruse of the Caf's Utd threads, and the threads that have sprung up about spending are just too cute. To be fair there are some posters who recognise that some problems run really deep, but there's enough of them that just want to spaff (thanks Boris) hundreds of millions on new players.

One states something like "200m could fix us. It could get Salah, Van Dijk and Fabinho in. There, we're challenging for the title." To fans like that, the idea of coaching a team to excel organically is an alien concept. The 'Utd way' is now:

Spend tens of millions per player because they were good at another club, watch them play like strangers, blame manager, demand a new manager, get a new manager, start making a shopping list.
Oh it comes to Divock Origi... he's won the European Cup for Liverpool! The man who cut down Barcelona has taken Tottenham down in Madrid! And it's dreamland worrying times for Liverpool Football Club. Shame really.

Apart from the inconvenient fact that Salah, Van Dijk and Fabinho won't want to go there to be coached by Ole. And the inconvenient fact we'd never sell to them. And the inconvenient fact that 200m wouldn't be enough even if you ignore one and two. It would have been like one of us proposing to buy Messi for 50m when Hodgson was manager.

Very wise to appoint an unproven manager off the back of a new manager bounce following the departure of the most poisonous manager in football history. You could have put Luke Chadwick or any other random ex player in as temporary boss and got better performances and morale after Jose.

They get a flukey VAR assisted win against PSG and boom, he gets a contract.

The folly of that was exposed last night. The squad is awful and they need a proper proven coach (their Klopp) to sort it out over a good few years. Instead Ole and Phelan are brought in to do a Fergie tribute act and I can't wait to see which Galacticos they bring in this summer. I mean, which top level player wouldn't want to play in Azbekistan on a Thursday night under a manager they never heard of. Their wage bill may become even more comedic to attract any player of note.

I'm expecting a post peak Bale to arrive on a gajillion pounds a week but they'll still be picking Jones at CB.....remember when United were crowing when they "beat us" to his signing?

Good times.

I refuse to believe any Utd supporter is thick enough to think they'll ever be raiding Liverpool for our best players (likewise us in for theirs. We're no Everton, who bully Barca these days).

The problem is that youíd also need good scouting and someone competent in charge of negotiating those deals - they have neither. Which is why they continue to waste hundreds of millions.

I honestly can see him buy Kane for £250m or more this summer, he's a traditional 1990's type of striker Solskjaer understands. Ole is twenty years behind the times.

And you know what I could see Spurs agree to it.

Probably another £80m on Maguire as well, £60m to £75m on Declan Rice too.

A British backbone "who understand the Utd way" for around £400m.

Fucking joke of an appointment. ;D
