We are screwed but how easy can it get for Liverpool. Odds are just being stacked for them now.

Glass half full or glass half empty. This draw means Liverpool will have to play at least 4 of a maximum of 5 games possible left in the UCL. That is a massive distraction when they are fighting for the EPL title. Have they got the squad to compete in both competitions without losing games? Well now we will find out.

I see CR7 lifting his 4th straight CL this season. On to Liverpool i hope they see Juve in the semis.

Don’t think we’ll be seeing Juventus in the semi somehow 😂
But we’d love to see them in the Fiinal!

4.) 15 Mar 2019 17:54:40
Yeah, hope you don't even see the semis forget the finals.

Whether we are after him or not but it looks like Poch will be looking for a job in the summer.

If he can't handle the pressure of competing for a champions league place with Tottenham then what makes anyone think he could handle the pressure of trying to win the league with United? Poch would be a backwards step so I fully expect him to get with job if its all on Woodward.

2.) 09 Mar 2019 19:07:47
Poch is a top manager his next job will be a big one and he will be successful.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 19:54:38
Jred, but will he? He has been constricted with money at Spurs but I’m still not convinced he can handle the pressure at a top club.

4.) 09 Mar 2019 20:23:58
Yer I think so, spurs aren't a team that traditionally win things they weren't even a top 4 team until poch took over .
He hasn't spent a penny this season and yet spurs are 3rd, and in the quarter finals of CL .

They have imo a thin squad so no surprise they tend to run out of gas.
Time will tell but his next move will be a big one and I strongly suspect he will be a success.

5.) 10 Mar 2019 06:04:55
Pressures showing though, laying in to the players publicly is never a good idea.

Heres a question - Do the players (established/ "world class") sign by the name of the club or do they sign based on the manager? For instance, a certain Zlatan wouldn't have come to United if it weren't for Jose Mourinho, neither would Matic (just a couple of examples, surely there would be more for SAF) . Also, in the past few seasons, we have been rejected by a fair few "man utd fans" who have gone on to sign for the rivals even though we offer the money. So what is it, the Manchester United name or is it the manager for who the players sign?

The reason I ask this question is suppose Ole gets the job permanently in the summer, so would the players be eager to join a reasonably unrecognizable face in managerial terms as opposed to let's say more established ones like Poch or Blanc? If it's the latter, then shouldn't the club keep that in mind when deciding the managerial future of the club?

Why wouldn't Zlatan or Matic sign for utd without mourinho, they weren't some unattainable world class players, one is playing in MLS which is where he would have ended up had we not signed him and other is someone who was getting outclassed by fabregas of all people at chelsea.

We signed paul pogba a bigger star than either and mourinho had little to do with him signing for us rather than madrid.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 16:25:41
CSM, buddy would you mind answering the question if you have an opinion rather than arguing on the examples. Its all in the past so we cannot really prove if zlatan and matic signed for the club or Mourinho. But if they did, why didn't they do so earlier when Zlatan was young and Matic was mobile. Anyway, the examples are what they are, please focus on the point raised. Would players want to play for Ole or Poch/ Blanc?

3.) 07 Jan 2019 18:00:08
Some people like living in the country other like living in the city, some want apartments other cottages.

Individual choice is what your asking. I don't think any player ever chooses to sign for a club based on just one particular aspect.

If Matic signed for Mourinho would be have signed for Brentford if Jose had been manager there? Probably not.

For some players they want to play for a certain manager, others want to play with certain players, some want to play in the EPL others in La Liga. Some take history and prestige of a club into account others don't. Ultimately everyone moves if the money is right.

There could be 1000 reasons why a player chooses to move to our club or chooses not to.

Ultimately if they don't want to move here then it's best they don't sign. We need players who want to be here and will fight to be here.

If they would rather be in London, or Spain then good luck to them. But they aren't the right player for us.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 22:14:55
Players play for money and opportunities (to earn more money) . Man Utd is one of the biggest clubs and platforms showcase a player's ability.

I do agree that managers can influence and OGS or Poch would certainly appeal to players a lot more than Mou.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 06:03:01
UA we never targetted matic and zlatan before, when Ronaldo signed for us in 2003 he did not reject Real Madrid and Barcelona they were never trying to sign him then.

Matic was an average joe who had 1 good season at Chelsea he has done nothing beyond that, zlatan was never needed. When zlatan signed for Juventus we had Rooney and Ronaldo, his next big move to Barcelona we had rooney and berbatov, his last big move to PSG we had Rooney and just signed RVP.

About players playing for certain managers, if we pay big money and are looking to win trophies players will come. Pochettino and Blanc aren't some big name superstar managers, one has never won anything the other hasn't got a job for 3 years now.

6.) 08 Jan 2019 06:26:06
Fair enough that Shappy and CSM. Thanks! For me personally, it would be a package really, the club and the manager.

What is happening over on the blue side? Did Jose take over from Pep?

So Pogba will now win the Balod d Or this season. Lukaku will win the golden boot and we will be champions of England and Europe now that Mr. Jose has left us.

1.) 18 Dec 2018 11:40:23
Were we on the way to winning those had he stayed?

2.) 18 Dec 2018 11:52:38
Doesnt matter CSM. Having been on the page long enough to understand what people think. Just putting it out there. I am sure there are several who will sleep with smiles on their faces today.

{Ed002's Note - That is just wind.}

3.) 18 Dec 2018 12:23:15
The players need to take a hard look at themselves UA but mourinho does not get a pass from me, the players who in the end were his downfall were players he paid big money for. He did not inherit pogba, matic, lukaku. He bought them if he can't get them performing its as much on him as it is on them.

Not that we are in for him, but if we go in for Coutinho, won't that be because Eds have repeatedly told us that both Pogba and Martial are likely to move on?

Certainly a lot of issues Ed, not just with the manager. It stems from incompetent decision makers. Thanks for all your inputs.

So Jose was right in not wanting Smalling to get a new contract, not wanting Costa and also wanting Pjanic. Hmmmm.

United Addict

{Ed002's Note - But the club never let him join their gang. It was a ba d move to appoint Mr Mourinho and a bad move for him to accept. He never sawMU as a progressive club that will adapt to what he thinks they need. He didn't like being in Manchester and there are those there who saw a blue tinge surrounding him. There was a major error in taking on Ibrahimovich - it is disruptive with the kids (although one specific issue has been overcome) and he wanted to move elsewhere. Mkhitaryan was a disaster waiting to happen. Pogba's career belongs in Spain or Italy - certainly not Manchester.

Suggest you visit the site more often and see my posts. Pogba, Rashford, Martial, Shaw (still useless) hell even De Gea made uncharacteristic mistakes. What do you expect? It wouldn't have taken a miracle if these players performed.

I am not defending Jose Mourinho, he has his flaws and is more suited to managing a team with men rather than high school girls who are more interested in instagram than football. He let his frustration of Woodward get the better of him and took it out on his players and that was his downfall but that does not give the players a free run. I suppose Jose would have broken Moyes' records if he put on the shoes and played rather than Pogba. By the way how has Pogba played under Ole. Been missing for 75% of the games.

Rebound effect is very common and i say that anyone could have gotten this result post traumatic Jose reign. Ralf something something (saints manager) in his first game beat Chelsea. Does that make him a great manager? Even Matteo took Chelsea to a champions league title out of rebound. Got sacked a few weeks into the next season. Was he great? Now i am not saying Ole is bad or anything but i do not think its him who will take us back to glory days.

77 of the 95 minutes, we were gifted the lead and then the match. Gift wrapped.

You really want to talk about PSG? 14% possession, that's the number we were at. We were gifted the game, just put it on the table for us, conspiracy buffs would even call it fixed. Did we even play in that game? We had 11 men behind the ball for close to 80 minutes in that game, a game we needed to win. Two gifts of a goal and a penalty that wasnt a penalty. Yes, i was very happy with us going through but i do not see what Ole did in that game. Shout out to the young ones who stood up though when the Pogbas of these world weren't playing.

Pogba performed well for 3/ 4 games and then back to his usual non performances. My opinions on Rashford are well documented.

If you really think that the players were giving it all under Jose then i don't want to have this discussion with you buddy.

We can still do this you know, just make sure the players turn up. I would even suggest drop Pogba for the game. Somehow he always goes missing in the big games. I have a feeling that we might pull this off. I am hoping that the players turn up. As for Messi, we kept Ronaldo quiet for much of the tie in the group stage. We keep Hazard quite but it will take 2 to keep him quite and don't think Pogba is the man to do the job.

So CSM, we beat City at the Etihad and we lost to Wolves, how about that comparison? We finished second last season to a record beating City and with a point total that in any other season would be challenging for a title. How about that? Players refused to put in the shift for Jose and we backed them. Not in too distant future these high school bitches will again refuse to give it their all so what do you suggest we do that again. We made a mistake by backing player power. We could end up like Chelsea if we continue to back the prima donnas. Ole simply failed to pick up the team after the Arsenal defeat. Can you say that any player, i am saying ANY one of them put in a shift yesterday? Its Wolves for god sakes, not Barca. Why bother for 4th and qualify for CL when we have set our standards for Wolves. We have rode the rebound wave and been lucky in quite a few games to really say Ole has done anything. Its 4 months into Ole and can you tell me what his approach is? What is his formation or tactics? what's his style?

Absolutely Shappy. I am not in favour of Ole at all. Ole has been doing all the same things that we accused Jose of i.e playing negative football with at times 11 men behind the ball. The first 3 and a half games of his reign were great to watch and then it has gone downhill. But I have already listed out my reasons in several posts.

There are no guarantees in football but you still go with the best available option. Ed2 has ruled out Allegri and I guess he might be off to PSG and that would make Tuchel available. Poch is likely to leave. Nagelsmann. Blanc. Just a few from the top of my head. But hey I don't make the decisions and I am sure there are several others that would make the list.

Everyone keeps saying that we have tried experience and CVs before that didn't work but let me point out to them that since SAF retired, we have won 2 Community Sheilds, 1 FA Cup, 1 League Cup and 1 Europa League. That's more than what Liverpool with their ultra modern managers have won in a decade or more.
