The common denominator in this whole VDB situation is Ole. The sooner we get a coach/ manager who knows what he's doing the better.

Picking your 11 based on sentimentality is killing the cohesion of the squad, just like hiring Ole on sentimentality is hindering the progression of the squad.

This obsession of doing things the United Way is going to lead to our demise because Ole doesn't have a clue.

He believes that playing under Sir Alex automatically qualifies him not realising that you need some level of intelligence and ruthlessness to apply it which Ole clearly doesn't and will never possess.

The ‘common denominator’ needs at least two things for one of them to be common, Ole isn’t the common denominator in one situation, it makes no sense unless you’re just trying to shoe horn another reason to have a go at him.

Totally disrespectful and condescending to suggest he has no level of intelligence, what a horrible thing to say.

What team exactly has he picked on sentimentality? He’s the first manager in years willing to drop Pogba and pick players who work hard in midfield who aren’t necessarily the ‘big names’.

There are many reasons why Ole might not be good enough, him not having any intelligence or ruthlessness are definitely not them, sorry but this post has got to me a bit.

I would normally agree that a new player particularly with no league experience should not be guaranteed a start.

However we have played 5 league games and have been very poor in 3 of them and average in the other two not withstanding a good last 15 mins against Newcastle .

He should have had more opportunities both off the bench and from the start imo. People will draw their own conclusions on why he hasn't played more.

Ole has said he will play and is in his plans in his news conference today. But he said that about smalling sanchez lukaku periera lingard and so on.

Managers will lie at the drop of a hat because they can't and shouldn't be expected to tell the truth all the time.

It really is no big deal after 5 games that he hasn't started. But it becomes frustrating when the people keeping him out are not playing very well and he can’t get a decent run.

Therein lies the problem. He is look out a couple of players that are clearly inferior to him and players that are not even playing that well. It could be understood if those being picked were lighting it up every week.

He was given assurances and is now being offered around. Doesn't read like he is 'only settling in'.

why as he kept pogba for another year then knowing he does not want to be here. why buy a player he dose not know what to do with him. i like the work ethic of fred and mctom but they are not taking us to the next level. why give matic a new contract and not play him. looks like he does not know his best team and just ets up jose style.

People play or don’t play, it’s the managers choice.

However, at some point DvB was told by the manager he was in his plans to play, there was an opportunity for him and now he finds out he is only a back to someone else that Ole will not drop. The player signed for United and now finds things are not as sold. People think it is ok to give a player that impression?

Yet again people jump in Ole’s defence, there again it should not be a surprise when he was some people’s all time favourite player.

Yes, the Ed has said everything clearly, those who love Ole will deny everything. It isn’t just Ole, but to some Ole can do nothing wrong.

This whole issues raises many questions, not just on Ole, but as soon as there is any criticism, the Ole defence starts. When some loved him as their favourite player it’s harder to be objective of him as manager.

Red man,

I’ve deliberately not ‘defended Ole’ as I know how the ends up, I point out if people are being unfair and causing issues where there aren’t any. I’m not particularly bothered if Ole stays or goes, I know there are better managers out there and I always felt he would leave a better squad for the next guy, I think he could probably do the rest of this season and do ok with what we have and then we may need another manager to push on. There’s no amazing defence of him, anyone who disagrees with you is apparently jumping to the defence when perhaps they just disagree with you?

This happens all the time, the same people posting exactly the same thing on every single post and bringing everything back to the point they want to make, I could literally tell you what Ken, Red Man and Angel were going to have written on this post as I scrolled down, why waste your time banging the same drum, just post it once and we will know your opinion, saying the same thing over and over is crazy IMO.

Gds2 ill post what i want when i want i don't need you to tell me what and when to post. If you think its crazy skip over the posts.

I know what you are going to write most of the time and its complete drivel but your opinion is valid and your entitled to say what you want when you want.

Your assessment of james is like some people's of ole. You can be scathing of united employees when it suits you if u or others want to do the same we will and as often as well like.

So skip the posts save yourself the time. Its people like you that encourage me to post my views more often to be fair. I must re double my efforts.

Angel, Donny could be benched for 30th game running and he'd still be settling in according to some, United fans bring it up because he is a top class player who is doing well in training and is one of the players we should be building a team around and because we care about our team being better, but 20 mins here and there and an agent looking to get him out to somewhere better is obvs acceptable for a new player lied too to get through the door in the 1st place isn't it because it shows we have great numbers lol.

You responded to the OP and when you do then I see no reason at all why I should not reply and add my point of view and I will be doing.

You say same people posting same posts, yet you are also one of them. It’s an opinion site by chance!

Quotes from Donny first interview settles it so we can all move on:

Donny in his 1st interview about what Ole told him: "He said he knew exactly what my biggest strengths are and told me that he wants me to be in and around the 16 yard box at Man United too. " 'Being in and around the 16 yard box' - Donny signed because he wanted to play up the field

Ole: "His ability to see space, time his movements and read the game will really complement the qualities that we've in midfield. His arrival really strengthens the depth of talent we have in that position" Keyword: 'depth'

Now you're thinking "but VDB won't be ok with this! " VDB: “I'll start at zero again at ManUtd. That might seem sad, but I love it. If you start down the ladder you can begin to climb up again. It’s now up to me to see how high I can reach. I see this as a challenge. ” Mentality!

Red man / ken

I’ve hardly posted recently to be honest, I’d say both of you have posted 10 times more than me in the last week and I try not to say the same thing again and again, I’ll respond to a post if I feel like it.

Anyone who disagrees becomes an “Ole defender”, when really they are probably just bored of every post being the same, like I said I knew what was coming as I scrolled down, sorry for calling you both out on it, it’s clearly got your knickers in a twist

Ken, I didn’t say that anything you say is ‘drivel’, I read and respect every post, as has been mentioned, it’s someone’s opinion and can’t really be wrong, you really are getting well above your station saying things like that, you didn’t used to be like this and it’s not a great look.

Gds2 firstly i'm very comfortable with my 'look' so how others percieve me on this page is irrelevant to me. I only know a few of the posters I've met so what a bunch of staggers think of my posts makes no difference to me.
What is my station? Pleae explain.

I didn't used to be like what? I've not been corrected for posting abuse to an ed or anybody else Gds2 perhaps you need to look at yourself begore accusing others of being above their station whatever that is.
