I think they had to give it to him after the way we have performed. I am happy about that, but I also don't expect things to continue on such a rosey path.

Three year contract.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... nt-manager

Thoughts?
It's a bit like brexit
50% will agree to the deal and look forward to the future
50% will not want for all sorts of reasons varying from not wanting a legend to be tarnished through to lack of experience and success
For me it is wait and see

What the above actually means is that appointment is no different to LVG and Jose when the fans were split 50/50 then

As usual the next footballing important step is to what degree Ole can convince Pogba,DDG and Rashford to stay
and
Does he want Herrara
and if not which players does he want and will the club back him

I hate to mention it but the clubs priorities will be a half price manager(Well half of what they paid jose who was on 15m) and pre season ticket sales for the mighty Champions Cup in the Far East

Time will tell.
The board seem to have waited long enough for the honeymoon period to end, and making the decision before they know if we have CL football or not is a brave one, and the right one because it takes some of the pressure off qualifying.

Ole's starting eleven is no secret, we all know who those players are, those spending more time on the bench than playing must have concerns, and not a lot of time to show real improvement.
I agree there are several players that need to be tied down, the club can afford it, so back Ole' and sign them up, we also need some new blood, that's also true, Ole' will no doubt have a list.

I think you are correct that some of the pressure comes off qualifying now the appointment is made however i wonder how important that is to the board
I would not say they don't want to qualify,as clearly they would like to, but i wonder how vital it actually is

For me very little changes for this year which has been one of turmoil
We go into the last full month of the year with many vital games in front of us which i am looking forward to

That said the pressure is no longer on Ole or a lot of the players but on our director of football Matt Judge
Certain players will be thinking about their next move
I am thinking specifically of Sanchez and Lukaku.Neither will give a shit whether they are at United or not because as professional footballers they don't care who they play for
If United do get rid of them they will receive big compensation cheques and a new big contract elsewhere probably in China
They will never return to the city of Manchester

Where the pressure is off Ole and on Matt Judge is DDG,Pogba and Rashford
It is vital to tie them down.They are the spine of the club going forward
Give them long term contracts now
This is no longer anything to do with Ole
Only Matt Judge can convince the players agents to sign long term contracts
Over to you Matt

Also on top of that Ole now needs a 3 year plan
This club has sunk that low to where it was not that long ago relatively that you cannot sort out it out in one transfer window
Ole will know what positions he needs to cover.
Some are obvious such as CENTRE HALF AND A CENTRE FORWARD and at least one and probably two replacements for Herrera and Mata
You could wait a season and just replace one if you wanted to give McTominay a chance but by then Matic will be moving towards the end so you will then need two
Some can wait one season but no more such as right back to see if Dalot can tie it down

But we must get the best available for centre half and centre forward.We should do what it takes and stop pissing around as we have done with LVG("i believe i did the best i could with third or 4th choice targets they got me") and Jose("i gave Mr Woodward 5 names of defenders and he got me none")

Realistically in football terms this board and Matt Judge are wankers and Ole needs some serious football help and ambition from above

Teams like Bayern Munich are already signing players on pre contracts for next season and i am sure Madrid("I wouldn't sell them a virus" are tapping up players including ours
PSG will be making some serious moves
I just hope we don't end up with ageing crocks who are no more than shirt sellers like Bale

Finally we've got the right manager. There's no doubt in my mind about that. Hopefully he'd get the financial backing needed to get the right players.

Personally I always wanted Ole as SAF replacement, (and I'm sure this is documented somewhere in this board) but I didn't think there was much chance of this happening..

So glad I was wrong..

Anybody see todays press conference?

Ole doesn't know what is happening with Anders Herrara
"You've have to ask him if he will be at this club next season"
WTF is running this club

If the current manager doesn't know who is playing for the club then does anybody still think that LVG and Jose bought their own players or is the cent finally dropping about who buys and wastes in footballing terms the transfer budget?

That's a pretty standard response from a lot of managers of a lot of sports clubs. Quit looking for reasons to be outraged by the glazers.

I don't have to look far

They never speak to fans, but give me as many reasons not to like them as you give me not to like you

That means that he's not signed the contract offered to him. Ole is pressuring him to sign it.

Dante - it is pointless trying to use reason and logic with Ray.

You could be right
I am hearing that he has signed already for another club.I believe it is PSG
If he has signed such a contract then it is useless to pressurise him

If Herrara has been dealt with the same way as Juan Mata has,and i believe he probably has, then nobody from Old Trafford has spoken to the representatives of either player since November never mind showing/offering him a new contract
I don't know for sure who the person in charge of such negotiations is so i won't apportion precise blame,if it keeps everybody happy however i would ask you,Dante do you believe it is the right or the courteous thing to do to just ignore the situation
Even if you don't want that player,which is fair enough at least tell him what the position is so he can make his own arrangements

The fact that Ole is now asking Herrara what his plans are suggests to me that Ole has had no say in the decision to try to keep him
What do you think?

This is not the time for these internal problems.
We should be totally focused on another Tiger Woods style miracle in Barcelona and a top 4 finish

Are we getting to the point were this situation won't last to long? Now I don't believe OGS is the problem, but is he the man to fix the problem? Did he get too buddy buddy with the players during the interim appointment? Do the players see him as the authority figure he needs to be to whip prima donna flakes like Pogba into shape? Mourinho couldn't do it, I highly doubt OGS could either. (although, to me the solution in that situation is get rid of Pogba)

Getting rid of Pogba would not necessarily be a bad thing but that's a time will tell thing
But you have to replace him if he does go and with a mid 20's year old top class player
Same statement if DDG goes and Lukaku and Sanchez and Rashford
they all want out for money and the oppotunity to play at the top level.
I believe they ALL get a 25% wage cut if they are in the Europa league as opposed to the Champions league
If you were DDG and Pogba would you want to take 25% less because you were forced to play with Young,Jones,Smalling,Sanchez and Lukaku?

You already need a replacement for Valencia and Mata and Herrara so that's 7 already before you look at the shit that is Young,Smalling and Jones
So now you are at double figures
Ole has said over the weekend that "people expect me to get 6 players but that's not going to happen"
I don't think 6 is enough.Do you?And don't forget "that isn't going to happen"
So when will we hear "what is going to happen"
I fully expect a usual transfer window yet again
The season ends and everybody draws breath whilst the players go on holiday
Lots of rumours and speculations about United getting the worlds best.
immediate announcement from Herrara's camp and United wishing him well,bullshit,bullshit
Ole insisting that Pogba and DDg aren't going anywhere

Back in training and now we will see who is staying.
More speculation on incomings

Go on tour.More speculation.
Woodward(not Ole) rumoured to be negotiation with everybody
One and possibly two big announcements of shirt sellers
A new sponsor or two.I am told they are currently looking for a stadium sponsor to do up the shit hole we that United are now playing in
A big advertising campaign around the new player(or two)

Normal service resumed for 2019/20.
Look forward to the January transfer window.Wait and see
You know there will be no value
