I’VE GOT A PHELAN (WOOO HOOO), THAT TONIGHT’S GONNA BE A GOOD NIGHT
This. But please don’t mention that ignorant disaster of a manager on a day like today!
What happened to that poster in the newbies Phelan Shorts?
I Phelan in my fingers I Phelan in my toes. The love that’s all around me and so the Phelan grows.
10 goals in Phelans last two United games
Best balloon popper in the game.
I miss the band-aid on his forehead
He should have been retained when Moyes came in (not that it would have saved Moyes).
The last time Phelan was in the dug out for us, we also happened to score 5 goals.
For Phelan, scoring 5 goals must seem quite normal.
Just imagine if we were to score 5 goals in our next match?
No it wasn't. Moyes downfall was just being a poor manager.
Let's be honest, the only reason Moyes should've kept Fergies backroom staff was because he himself and his boys weren't good enough. Every manager brings in his own backroom staff, and it wouldn't even have been a questionable decision if a half competent manager took over.
Those shorts have powers beyond our belief obviously.
We've needed a connection with SAF's coaching on the bench ever since he retired.
Phelan is that man.
That'll do pig.
Eh? It never made any sense. It was feckin' tragic.
I think I recall one of the commentators on my stream mentioning that Phelan had been working at a 6th form in Burnley before he re-joined us.
Did I hear that correctly? Seems mental.
Even gave Rooney praise.
It was a one day invitation for him to share some experiences with some school kids and give a Q&A.
Ah thanks, seems a bit weird that they mentioned it as if that was his full-time job, but perhaps that's just the way I interpreted it.
Glad to have him back, with or without his shorts.
Phelan works a lot with the Defence and midfield.
Should he be kept on as a coach when the new manager comes in?
Cannot wait to see those shorts again
I'm not the only one who's noticing OGS calling him Mick right?
Is that his nickname or something?
Love this thread, good posts guys.
A look at the new bench crew now, idk, but it just feels like United again with Phelan there.
Ole and Phelan are truly the polar opposites to Mourinho! Credit to Woodward for treating the cancer, better late than never.
He'd been working as the sporting director for the Central Coast Mariners in the A-league.
Is a fair and valid point.
But I think, the way I see it at least, is that you don’t hire Moyes and think from day 1 he is a ready and finished article. I think he was hired with the view that he’d be good enough and grow into it as he developed. Moyes was not an instant success type hiring.
So when I say it’s his downfall, what I’m saying is he didn’t have the people around him to take that developmental step to get to grips with managing a club like United.
Ultimately he sucked, yeah, but with the right people around him, he may well not have.
Needs to be made a full time member, he just belongs at United.
Even if Poch comes in the summer he should have Phelan around the club is some capacity.
So good to see him back on then bench again!
Phelan was SAF's right hand man and I hope that Ed and the board have now realised the massive mistake they made by letting him go in the first place. He has always known utd's philosophy and obviously knows how to instill that into the players. Let's see how the season pans out but if yesterday was anything to go by, Ole and Phelan will make a formidable pairing who should be give dibs on the managerial and head coach/assistant positions. I'm looking forward to the next month now.
How can you say that? Surely after Fergies backroom staff had just been involved in winning the title by 11 points the logical decision was to sack them all and replace them with people that had won nothing and was used to coming 7th in the table. It made total sense......... to one person. David Moyes. Seriously though, on getting offered the job by Fergie, he should have been told that it's on the condition you keep all the backroom staff on.
Phelan is perfect for us. Although he is brilliant at tactical things, he is also sadly lack of some leadership quality, but Ole can fix that.
He understands the values of Manchester united.
I didn't even knew that I missed him.
Having him back is wonderful
Weird flex but ok
I would have been more happy if it was Carlos Quiroz instead of Phelan
Don't be such a misery trousers shorts.
Great coach for United but his teams that he has managed have been terrible to watch. The Portugal team was bloody awful under him.
I guess Ole would have brought back meulensteen too had McKenna and Carrick not been there.
Where was he since fergie left. Looks like we just beckoned him and he just appeared out of nowhere and it's as if he never left
