a club having a nervous breakdown.

I've never seen supporters of any kind in so much pain and distress

their eyes cry out 'Why has our God forsaken us?'

Its one of the most beautiful sights in history

they are having an even deeper and more prolonged Hodgson moment

when they appoint a competent director of football they'll stand a chance of recovery

but even then it'll take years because they're so far behind

I take it you don't live in Rhyl. The Samaritans are overrun with Everton fans at the moment.

Older United fans will have seen them being shite for many years, but the newer generations must be in shock these days. Ferguson ruined them by giving them something they will never have again. I don't even think many of them appreciated it in the end either, but I bet they do now. sometimes, you can have something for so long that you just take it for granted, but when it's gone, you really, really feel it.

For me, they really needed the manager Ferguson handed the reigns over to to be the absolute right man. There needed to be a continuation of standards as far as possible. They went for Moyes. Now even my dog could have predicted what would follow. Since Ferguson they have fell off a cliff. They handed over to a man as far out of his depth as Oleh is today. As delicious as it all is, it was also totally predictable. Like every dog, they've had their day. They will get back on the rails at some point, but it will not be anything like the Ferguson era.

But how many predicted that Moyes would actually sack their whole existing coaching/backroom team?  That was crazy.

They've just announced record revenues, so they are clearly getting the off-field stuff right.

Hopefully, they continue to fuck up the football side  :)

At the moment, Roy is as close to a top four spot as he's ever been in his career right? He finally made it near the top, so why would he step back into the relegation zone?

we all know what kind of character that man is. Always up for a challenge. and what bigger than Man u. Imagine the legacy he will leave. Managing 2 of the biggest clubs on the planet.

That's the beauty of it. Ferguson created the opportunity for the Glazers' takeover, he took the Glazer shilling and never criticised them, then kicked off the procession of screwed up managerial appointments with Moyes.

I have no doubt he was consulted over Solksjaer as well.

Ole clearly not the guy but this squad is abysmal. Pereira, Lingard, Mata, Fred, Matic, Rojo, Young all way way too poor to even play in this league anymore. The results are not surprising after the injuries to our few torch carriers
Mata and Young are still Premier League players, despite Young's thuggish approach in games. Matic has proved to be a winner at Chelsea. They could not have turned bad in a year?

I think Ole does not have a strategy - or if he does, it is a simple one of getting 9 players behind the ball and then to break out on a counterattack.

Way too young and hasn't won anything. They need someone who can put a stamp of authority over the squad, has a strong CV in winning stuff and has a name that will pull both experienced and young players to come and want to play for them.

My money is on Allegri. Still only 52, unemployed.

I want Ole to stay but considering their next match is against us, I can't see it. We'll smash them all over the place and I can't see him surviving that. So who comes in next? Allegri is a good shout, but he could be hit or miss. He had some very good teams at his disposal in Italy and I'm not sure he'd know what to do with this current shower of shite. Nagelsmann should be their first choice but they can't get him now and will have to put someone in charge until the end of the season. And even then Nagelsmann might not go. Give it to Phil or Gary Neville. They know the club. They know what it takes.  ;D

While he obviously wasn't the right man for the job and should have gone for more continuity in the backroom staff, a simple continuation as far as the playing squad wouldn't have worked either as Ferguson had signed players with an eye on that one last title before he left and they needed an immediate overhaul, which was clearly predicted on here to much derision from mancs on here and redcaf too, which makes their subsequent misery more entertaining.  ;D

Allegri won with Juventus. Its almost like winning with Bayern in Germany or Celtic in Scotland. The absolute dominant force. What Utd was under Ferguson. They are in a parlous state at the moment and need a messiah Klopp type figure to rebuild.

He'll do better than Oleh obviously but its a three season rebuild there minimum even if they get boss signings every summer.

Mourinho, Van Gaal couldn't raise them back up. Its a club where coaches fail now

City’s wage bill is slightly lower than ours? Is some of it still hived off?

They farmed a load of staff onto the holding company which massively lowered the wages. Plus they almost certainly pay a chunk of wages / bonuses to players via other means.

I don't think their problems are impossible to solve, it's just a matter of getting a few key decisions right as the biggest constraint for most clubs - money - will never be an issue for them.

It's never going to happen in a million years because their board is filled with imbeciles, but I imagine if they appoint Rafa Benitez right now and give him full control over the playing structure and all footballing matters, he'll have them in the top 4 within 2 seasons. Moreover, I wouldn't put it past him to get them challenging for the title in 4 years.

Fortunately, there's no joined up thinking at that club as the solutions are staring them in the face. There are plenty of competent managers around, Ed Woodwoodward, like Purslow, just loves playing at Football Manager too much.

The revisionism amongst United fans is peculiar to watch. “The United Way” is essentially something they make up as they go along.

Moyes hired - “The Chosen One!”
Van Gaal hired - “No, we need an illustrious track record”
Mourinho hired - “This is the real Chosen One, Moyes was actually our 17th choice”
Solskjaer hired - “Promote from within, play the kids!”
October 2019 - “We need to spend another £700 million”

If I was Woodward, I’d be very wary of taking advice from the fan base. United fans have celebrated the hiring of every single manager post-Ferguson. Each appointment has been met with adulation. Each one has then quickly been hounded out of the job by those very same fans.

I take it you don't live in Rhyl. The Samaritans are overrun with Everton fans at the moment.

Older United fans will have seen them being shite for many years, but the newer generations must be in shock these days. Ferguson ruined them by giving them something they will never have again. I don't even think many of them appreciated it in the end either, but I bet they do now. sometimes, you can have something for so long that you just take it for granted, but when it's gone, you really, really feel it.

For me, they really needed the manager Ferguson handed the reigns over to to be the absolute right man. There needed to be a continuation of standards as far as possible. They went for Moyes. Now even my dog could have predicted what would follow. Since Ferguson they have fell off a cliff. They handed over to a man as far out of his depth as Oleh is today. As delicious as it all is, it was also totally predictable. Like every dog, they've had their day. They will get back on the rails at some point, but it will not be anything like the Ferguson era.

For the moment, Schadenfreude hasn't tasted so sweet.  8)

That's an incredibly talented dog you've got there mate.     :)
"What's passive smoking? There's passive lots of things. Like passive listening to shitheads. I have to put up with that every day. Are you going to ban people from talking crap? They give me a headache. Believe me, they're killing me. One day people's conversations on the street will do me in." Terry Hall

Heard an interesting discussion on the Football Weekly podcast a couple of days ago.

The domino effect of that penalty decision against PSG. If that doesn’t get given, Solskjaer probably doesn’t get hired. United may have secured Poch at the start of summer instead. Then both United and Spurs have a summer transfer window to prepare with new managers. In hindsight you’d imagine this could have worked out better for both of them.

Just a humorous and hypothetical way of looking at things. It’s certainly beyond any doubt that the penalty decision ended up as a bad thing for United anyway.

Just be happy you don't inhabit that parallel universe.
"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent. "All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.
