It's Notchettino for me. My emotions are saying Ole, but firstly we must:
(a) appoint a DoF
(b) appoint a permn manager at the end of the season, in consultation with the DoF (whom he would have to work closely with, so that could influence the decision)
I would LOVE for that man to be Ole but we will see.
Absolutely spot on
The first part ie appointing a director of football should be very very easy but with Glazernomics in play it will become hard if indeed it happens at all.
The club in footballing terms is the sparcest it has ever been
The owners know sod all about football and indeed i suggest they don't give a flying fcuk
The CEO,Ed Woodward knows less than the owners but possibly does actually think he knows a lot or could even be deliberately following a Liverpool fans dream of running this club into obscurity whilst milking it at the same time
The manager,the assistant manager and all the current coaches don't know whether to move house or stay where they are
How much is SAF playing in a behind the scenes role?
So for director of football you could choose from the vast talent pool of people who have actually played for United at the top top level and that pool is vast is in not.
You could actually put Carrick in that job if you wanted.Or Scholes,Giggs,Keane or more or less anybody that has won everything in the last 20 years
Woodward dipped a tie in the water a couple of months ago by talking to Paddy Evra(they were together in London at the West Ham game) but that has just died a death.We will never know why
A conspiracy theorist would suggest that Woodward/The Glazers didn't want anybody talking football on their behalf who did not understand Glazernomics but that could not possibly be true.Could it?
So what a we left with
As usual not a hint of a clue from within the club,which for me does not bode well
Remember half wanted Moyes and half didn't
When it went wrong it was all Moyes fault
Then half wanted a world experienced LVG and half didn't.
When the football was not as exciting as many wanted even though,to be fair,LVG won all that could be expected he got the bullet.
That was all LVG's fault
So in comes serial winner Jose.
Half wanted him and half didn't.He wins us a European trophy and finishes runner up in league but fails to get the defenders he pleaded for.
The football,the team,the club goes down the pan and Jose gets the bullet
It was all Jose's fault
Now up steps Ole
The Glazernomics cheap option until the end of the season
He does brilliantly well with results and performance with a team that i would suggest is 3rd or 4th place only without being capable of mounting a top challenge in the league or Europe
He has legitimately put his name in the hat and confirmed he actually wants the job
Half want him and half don't
Also possibly around is Poccetino,but that is rumour mill only.Half want him and half don't
Anybody see a pattern here?
FFS get a director of football appointed and NOW and forget that such a person costs valuable dividend money
Will it happen?
Wait and see
