OLE QUOTES

Mon Dec 24, 2018 8:12 pm

When Mou took over it was like "this guy gets us, he said he was very aggressive and wanted to win everything."

"A Man Utd team shouldn't be outworked no matter who they play."- Ole Gunnar Solskjare.

That is the Man Utd way.

Ole is a Manchester United hero
He played the United way and understood the United philosophy
Although not close to the best players in the clubs history or indeed in his own playing era he became an all time legend with THAT goal

I just hopes when he leaves this club these greedy owners and Scouse Ed have not ruined his reputation and his immortality at this club

For me the man can do no wrong. He would still be a United legend if he got us relegated
He is up there with the likes of Cantona,Giggs, Beckham, Scholes, Best Charlton and Law.
111 goals mainly from the bench is some feat

I agree but that's now.
It might change

This lot have made pricks of two of the most successful club managers of all time
You may or may not have liked Jose but with 25 major honours including European cup wins and league wins you can't knock his record
Louis van Gaal is described in Wikipedia as one of the most successful managers of all time winning 20 major honours and many manager of the year and coach of the year awards.Yet this lot buggered him up
Even our own greats Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Matt Busby have had their memories tarnished by this lot
SAF ended up taking the Glazer dollar by allowing himself to be bent by bribery over several tranfers where he got the money.Such as Bebe and Tosic
They also desicrated the memory of Sir Matt Busby by removing all signs of his existence from the directors box and rescinding all rights to his immediate family

Just watched the full Ole press conference from a few days ago.
As is now being reported in the Sunday papers when asked about the futures of DDG and Martial,Ole suggested that both should sign a new contract as the "grass s not greener away from Manchester United"
Well for me this is very simple to solve if a solution to keep them both is the preferred option for Scouse Ed
DDG agent is quoted as saying that DDG has been made several offers of which none are close to what DDG wants/is worth.
Common sense tells you that DDG will be asking for the going rate plus a bit more for so many consistent years.He will not be asking for a figure that is so far from reality there is no hope of a deal being struck.That is of course unless he is determined to leave
Sort of the same for Martial and even add Pogba and possibly Rashford in this
If you want to build around them then get the pen away from the dividend cheque and write proper contracts that allow the above 4 players to concentrate on being the best they can be for Manchester United
Equally if profit is the main and only objective sell whoever you want and show the fans "again" how greedy the owners are
Build a team,build a brand or take the profit?
Over to you the Glazer family

For years I have been saying that deGea should be the highest paid goalkeeper in football, full stop. Sign him to a long-term contract and add a clause that he will always be the highest paid goalkeeper. That would make good football sense and also good business sense. Making deGea the highest paid United player would not be out of the realm of possibility if we had not made Sanchez a £18.2M a year part time player, that’s a decision that will come back to haunt us over the next few years.

Besides deGea; Martial, Pogba, Rashford, Shaw, are exciting young players that would form the nucleolus of any team in any league and selling them is not a good business decision let alone being an idiotic football decision. Based on Chelsea, City and Liverpool experience and cost of replacing their goalkeeper, replacing deGea with a halfway decent keeper will be in the neighborhood of £50 - 65M. With a single year left on his contract I think £70M would be a great price if we could get it, deGea could also play out his contract and leave for nothing which would be a total disaster all around. United is not averse to spending money, we have the second highest payroll in the premier league, only behind City. Our transfers over the last 4 or 5 years have been comparable with any team anywhere, we can discuss how well the money has been spent but saying that we have not spent in the transfer market is just a Trumpism.

Selling your best assets isn’t the way to grow a business or to build a successful football club. Let’s see what happens between now and next summer because letting deGea and Martial go into their option year is without new contracts is just plain dumb, not good business and sends a terrible message to the rest of the players.


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

So looking at what's happened so far, do these look like the same players from just a few weeks before under the 3rd season ticking porcupine that was José? No - it's no wonder though, because José always gave the impression and spoke as though our players are useless. Again, bar the central defense, that's just untrue.

IMO the manager himself with his self destructive tendencies eroded the confidence in the team. I don't think they downed tools personally. I think they were unhappy and completely bereft of confidence. I saw a lot of the players toil away in many games, but it looked like hard, tedious work, and nobody wanted to be there. If 3/4 years ago you were told we would have Martial, Rashford, Sanchez, Pogba, Mata, Lukaku in the same team, you would have thought it would make a lethal team, suddenly José comes along this season and sells to everyone that they overachieved to come even second. He convinced most that everyone - the board, the actual generation, the players, the fan expectations, everything apart from him were the problem. After matching just about everyone for squad investment in the last few years, could they really have been that poor?

It's easy to sit and blame the players for hanging him out to dry, but anyone who has worked for anyone, or managed any team knows that a happier, more motivated team performs a lot better and delivers better results. It's a fact of life, it doesn't mean they downed tools - there's an energy that pulls that extra out of people who buy in to, believe in, and enjoy what they're doing. If you spend time criticising everyone and declaring how great you are, you (in this case the manager) become the disruptor. In this case it was the manager.
