Someone’s Continuing To Have A Real Laugh - Michael Carrick Interim United Manager

Recommended Posts

Valverde was responsible for their collapse at Roma and against us. His teams are known for having the fortitude of wet tissue paper. Messi and Suarez carried him throughout his reign. He'd have them playing tiki-taka and they have nobody in that squad that can pull it off.

Bit disrespectful to Maguire and Shaw there.

Was it me? Or did the BT commentary last night get far too excited over a team Man Utd should really be beating? 

No I thought that,  way way over the top,  that Fletcher chancer just couldn't contain himself you'd swear they had beat peak Barca the way he was going on

No one is years ahead of a club with the resources of Man United.

You are correct from a financial standpoint but if FSG had backed Klopp even half as much as the Glazers have backed even their shit managers we'd be back on our perch as leading title winners by at least a couple.

Have to laugh at the hypocritical twats all saying that win 'was for Ollie.' Yeah, the same Ollie you were all fucked off with and briefing your favourite reporters how training was boring and poor, tactics were wrong or non existent etc.

Wind forward a few seasons and Luke Shaw will shock us in his autobiography, revealing Maguire was infact playing pass the pound in the 5-0 drubbing we gave them

Even then he'd probably give it to Salah.

I reckon he's the type to keep it because he wanted some stickers and some Minstrels

The point I was trying to make in my original post. We could have put more distance between us and them given their repeated incompetence since Ferguson left. As it is they only have to find a half decent manager to make them good again.

If you mean good as in scrapping for 4th every season I agree...

I was delighted they signed Ronaldo in the Summer.

 

They did ok last year based on a defence that defended deep and having lightning pace on the counter.

 

The now play a forward each week who can't/won't run which harms their ability to do that. To compensate their defence is no longer as deep and it exposes the likes of Maguire, Wan Bisska and Shaw who don't have the pace or ability to play further up the pitch.

 

They're caught between two ways of playing. Dropping Ronaldo and going back to last season's basics is the short term answer that would probably get them 4th but he'll be looking to plunge the knife at any opportunity if they do that.

 

Long term to be a progressive team their whole defence and midfield needs a complete overhaul.

 

I think this nails it, especially the last part...

Bit pissed off with that, he seems competent. I’d rather it was Valverde or Mark Hughes/Steve Bruce or some other incompetent no-mark. Rangnick will probably get them a top four spot.

If Rangnick also has authority to shape the philosophy of the club, it's a good hire. If he's just there to be interim, it's whatever. He's never achieved that much as just a manager.

 

Edit: seems like his deal includes 2 years of consulting after. That's pretty good for them, then.

That's it, if they have any sense let him manage the team for six months which gives him proper oversight of the squad and club structure then move him upstairs as the director of football with genuine control. Still think they'll screw this up, the Glazers won't stand for anyone interfering and their supporters will have turned on him by then.

    • in all honesty it was just a few games too many in the end.   as fun as it was winning the other two finals, the total accumulation of game after game after game caught up with the players in the end.    the last few games we picked up injuries and lets call a spade a spade, neither of those players shone brightly last night. Van Dijk was fine, but Thiago was definitely off the pace and Fabinho not much better.    Salah has been running on empty since the afcon, Mane, up until last night was exceptional, but the tap had run dry, he's only human.    I definitely think we need a young hungry midfielder, who that is, fucked if i know, and a prolific central striker wouldnt go a miss.    i know there's some chatter around Kane at the minute, persnally, id love that to happen, but i cant see FSG coughing up the funds for a 29 year old with questionable ankles.....but say what you want, that guy would score bags of goals in this team.    hopefully next year we'll learn our lessons and quite frankly play the under 9's in both the league and fa cups, there's no need for the first team to be playing them cups, they're not the league nor champions league.
    • On the link, there are four icons, beginning with the quotation symbol. Pick the last one and it comes up with “copy link to this tweet”. That’s the one that embeds it.        
    • Still gutted. Horrible waking up after a Final loss. Even the sun isn’t shining like it was yesterday. Proud of the boys for this season but this is hard to take.
    • It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the greatdevotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
    • I said a while back I’d have Taki on ahead of Jota if we needed a goal, and I stand by that this morning. Jota has been poor for months now. It seems odd to not play a bloke who seems to score every time he plays instead of a fella who can’t hit a barn door at the moment.
