    Follows the example of Barca and has a connection to the club, who would we appoint? Mike Phelan or Ole Gunnar?

    That really depends on how long SAF got left, doesnt it? OGS wont be ready for quite a while yet, and I have to be honest and say that I have absolutely no idea how good of a manager Mike Phelan will be. If Ole can continue to build on what he's doing in Molde, then obviously I would love to see him in charge but there are plenty of managers who has a connection to the club whom are alot more experienced then him in the fields of management.

    Giggs doesn't strike me as someone who'd be good in management. Just a gut instinct not based on any knowledge of him as an individual.

    Has to be Ole Gunnar for me. Comes across as very intelligent on the game.

    I'd plump for Ole too with Phelan or Quieroz as his assistant.

    Solskjaer, without a doubt.

    Throwing names like giggs and neville in there makes no sense to me. They have 0 experience of managing at any level.

    Swap Cantona and Blanc's roles and you have got a deal.

    I would say Ole if we are going by that philosophy.

    Amazing how some gravitate to people who haven't managed before.

    Scholes said Giggs should be the man.

    I'd be happy to go with that.

    Solskjaer, definitely. Although if we are going down that route I think we should encourage Phelan to (bugger off elsewhere) find a managerial position of his own and bring back Solskjaer to work alongside Ferguson closely for a couple of years and bring in a few of his philosophies.

    Pep only had a season as manager of the Barcelona B team before taking the senior team over.

    Well, Queiroz seems like an obvious choice if we want to recruit someone with United past. He's the only one who has had significant influence on United's style of play - not sure about Phelan's influence but we can assume Solskjaer and Blanc haven't had any.

    Scholes always surprises me as a choice for next manager.

    This is a man who is known to say next to nothing in the changing room and be painfully introverted and do everything in his power to stay out of the media spotlight.

    How on earth would that translate to a good manager?

    Yeah, I'd like to think that Solskjaer is our equivalent albeit with experience elsewhere.

    Solskjaer, but I would also be very comfortable with Carlos Queiroz returning as manager.

    Ole by miles.

    Has the temperment and certainly knowledge. He will be very different from Fergie but that does not matter. He needs a lot more experience before he can take charge of the biggest club in the world but he should be given the chance eventually.

    It's been said a thousand times before but whoever comes in I hope to God they give them time to establish themselves.Following a legend like SAF will be the same as following Busby.We tried to promote from within but it was beyond poor old Wilf.

    I'd love to think OGS could come in after a couple of years managing elsewhere.Don't think it neccessarily has to be in the Prem.

    Would Phelan still wear shorts if he was named as Manager?

    In all seriousness though it looks like Ole is the man to take over. He seems to have proven himself over in Norway and has already found more success than the likes of Bruce, Hughes, Keano and Robson.

    As for Giggs, he is still an unknown quality and it would be a big gamble to hand over the reigns to someone who hasn't had any experience dealing with top flight management. Anyways, I thought Fergie said his successor would be someone with alot of experience on the job and especially in European competition.

    How much is a lot more experience? SAF will certainly retire in the next 2 years.Would you class that as enough experience?

    Therefore anyone who has never managed before should manage Man United ? Bizarre logic.
