They are a very good side.
Ole was resilient in his after game interview, considering what he had just learnt about Ryan looking after the team gerbil.

That a less experienced manager in Lampard with arguably a weaker squad and zero signings of his own is doing to so much better than Solskjaer is pretty damning.  Even without us setting such a relentless pace they'd be way off it.

Never mind about being closer to the relegation zone than they are to the Champions League places, they're closer to -4 points than they are to us.
Yeah that's bollocks, Fat Frank inherited a squad that still has the bulk of their title winning side there, as well as the 475 promising player s they usually loaned out, he's had to use Abraham and Mount due to the transfer ban, we'll not know whether it's blind luck or good judgement until he's been in the job a few seasons.

Judging by the fact that he had Mount on loan last season at Derby I'd say it is better judgement than luck.

The couple of months he's been there, he has really improved them a lot.

Maybe a manager with PL experience? From one of the (admittedly many) teams above them? An Englishman who understands the PL and the size of the job at united? A man whoose methods translate.

Not sure about Chelsea having a weaker squad, much rather have theirs than Utd's

They've played without Kante & Loftus Cheek most the season as well

But that's only because Lampard unearthed the likes of Tomori, Mount and Abraham (they played for him at Derby). Before those players shone, I'd rather have had Man United's squad.

Considering that, Lampard's doing a good job.

It would really have to be a lunatic buyer. Pay billions to the glazers for a club that needs huge investment in all areas including the stadium just as the profitability begins to slide. It's a very expensive deal with little upside and lots and lots of downside. Pretty much the opposite of Chelsea, City even The Ev when they were bought.

Takeover is definitely possible. However as a publicly traded company on the NYSE anything like this would have to be reported to the SEC and announced officially before anyone should believe any of these rumors. And it will probably require anti-trust approval, etc. Maybe it will happen maybe it won’t, but I’ll wait for a real announcement.

Does anyone know what percentage of the ownership of the club floats on the market? Even if this happens it will take a while to go through.

That a less experienced manager in Lampard with arguably a weaker squad and zero signings of his own is doing to so much better than Solskjaer is pretty damning.  Even without us setting such a relentless pace they'd be way off it.

Never mind about being closer to the relegation zone than they are to the Champions League places, they're closer to -4 points than they are to us.

Not a chance Chelsea's squad is weaker than United's to be fair, even if they lost their best player. Plus their youth products are far better than United's.
