Ole no longer at the wheel


Recommended Posts

Well out stayed his welcome

 

Funny how you end up feeling sorry for people in football who get an opportunity they didn't really deserve, make a hash of it, paid money we could only dream of along the way and no doubt a huge payoff for good measure.

Fletcher in as interim manager. 
 

It’s ridiculous how badly that club is run. If that was Chelsea they would already have had a top manager lined up ready to go. Instead Fletcher will win his first 3 games and get a 4 year contract. 


Agreed,  biggest club in the world and they don’t act like it.  Why appoint an interim manager till end of the season?  Get the man you want now and let him build for next season

They don't have a clue.

 

Sack him and put Carrick in charge until they think of someone to appoint... lol

 

It isnt like Carrick was Ole's assistant or anything.

They are run nearly as badly as us :Chansiri:

I suppose we can be grateful for the fact we don't have a raft of ex players in the coaching staff...

 

Wait a minute...

 

Oh ffs.

Sacked according to Sky

 

Lovely guy OGS, but absolutely nothing in his previous managerial career suggested that he was a European level coach / manager. To be fair, at times they looked very good indeed under his stewardship, and you wondered whether they were on the verge of resuming their status as serious contenders, but the momentum always faltered. A couple of wins might have postponed his departure, but the nature of some of the recent defeats as much as the results themselves showed a manager out of his depth. After yesterdays debacle, the players just looked broken.

Sums it up perfectly.

You wonder if Giggs is regretting his extra-curricular problems. He always coveted the job, and apparently was hugely miffed that he wasn't offered it previously.

 

The reality is that they've never really recovered from the departure of Fergie. The rot sort of developed from allowing him to anoint his own replacement, and since then it's been one ill advised appointment after another.

Truth be told, I think the rot was setting in whilst Fergie was still in charge.

 

His greatness, along with David Gill, papered over the cracks and shortcomings of the Glazer stewardship.

 

If you actually look at the last few Fergie title winning teams they weren't all that. There was a notable downturn in quality once Ronaldo was sold in 2009.

True - SAF is such a deity at OT that moving on from him was always gonna be difficult

 

he still casts a long shadow but Utd have gotta rise above that - the game is different now and the life expectancy of a manager at virtually any club is ridiculously short

 

Utd have tried to buck that trend but they have no strategy at all - it's like the football version of "pin the tail on the donkey"

 

At the worlds biggest club...

Fergie knew what he was doing leaving when he did. Quite enjoy seeing them having tough times to be honest. 

Oh absolutely.

 

RVP was one final indulgence to make sure he won the title in his final season. He knew that team wasn't all that.

They need to wait until after the Ashes to get their number 1 target...
