    Ferguson was not rubbish at the start. It takes years to build a team. Indeed with the core of the side he inherited he came second in 1987-88. Because of the restructuring of the club from top to bottom which Ferguson instigated he was putting down the foundations upon which 23 years of success was built upon.

    They won't. I remember saying this back before Jose went. I said if Jose got fired they'd turn on the new guy at the first sign of a few iffy results.

    Half of them say the players we have are not even top 6 quality but still expect United to win every game 3-0 playing great football from minute 1.

    It's some kind of odd mental affliction I think. Related to anxiety or something. They find watching United be anything other than the best team so utterly unbearable it brings on panic attacks and stress. If we aren't 4-0 up after 20 minutes they lose their fecking minds.

    It's strange because we were told by the Paul Inces of life that when a new manager is hired then he automatically wins for the next three months, just by clapping and smiling a bit.

    Sorry to say, but Ole is coming across as a blagger in his pressers these days. Giving him the job before the end of the season was a really bad move...

    Au contraire mon ami, you do understand; You understand it more than you can imagine. As if it were Cantona's flying foot into the face of a deranged melon at Selhurst Park.

    People of redcafe we must abandon all pretense at decent debate and cease to relent in our jerkism until our squad resembles the greasy palms of a teenager/neet addicted to FIFA Ultimate packs and hashtag bantz. Embrace the future.

    The last English team to eliminate Barca in the CL was managed by someone initially appointed as a caretaker and then confirmed as permanent. Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez played in that game but on different sides. The first leg was a 1-0 result and in the second leg at the Nou Camp, the English team scored 2 away goals.

    One manager arrived last year and has had time to work with the squad that finished 2nd last season. The other arrived last month and took over a team that got eliminated by Ajax ffs. How on earth can you compare the two?

    Is this serious?

    You're trying to argue Ole walked into a better situation than Zidane has?

    Have you forgotten the state we were in by the time Mourinho was sacked?

    How is a Liverpool fan telling us what SAF was and was not? Btw it was 27 years not 23! Up until 1990 he was under severe pressure, plenty fans holding 'Excuses are up, Fergie Out" signs. Took 7 years for him to really get it together and win United their first PL! Then after that, pure relentlessness!

    What do you expect him to do? Act like Jose? frown and bitch all day! disrespect the club, call his players shite! Talk about how many times they've been knocked out of the CL? Is that what you want for him not to be a "blagger". Absolute nonsense!

    It's the side effect of Fergie's decades of success. It was always bound to happen after the great man left. Only thing one should hope for now is that it doesn't drag on for another decade. We need to calm down, be realistic about where we are now and patiently re-build. This requires giving our manager time and the opportunity to build rather than calling for his head at any sign of stumbling.

    Cmon mate, we are in a position where we can beat some of our nearest rivals to get top 4, something most of ous thought unthinkable when Mourinho was sacked. We got through PSG and are now in a position where it is not outside the realms of possibility that we snatch a win at Nou Camp to knock out Barcelona. Let's try to hope for some excitement instead of being doom mongers on here.

    Nah, I can't register any excitement.
    None of those players do anything for me, with the exception of Pogba but, his arsey attitude and his inconsistency boils my piss. Lingard being today's version of Danny fecking Wallace, Phil Jones just waiting to sit on the detonator, Young punting balls in the air, Martial feeling a slight breeze and deciding he's not arsed tonight, Ole still talking about fecking 1999...

    Meanwhile, Custard teeth across the way, fist pumping the Kop, with the League trophy between his teeth...

    The way Sanchez plays you'd still think he was playing for the opposing side.

    There's light and day between crowing "20 times" and slamming Ole for bringing up some good memories ahead of the biggest game we've played in years and acting like Pool are already champions :lol:

    Yeah, because saying he needs to drop the 1999 talk is me "slamming him" ffs :D

    Bringing up good memories...That's what we used to mock Liverpool for. How the tables have turned...

    He also managed basically the same team less than a year ago. People talk like someone like him would have turned our squad of misfits into world beaters, all we had to do was 'wait until the end of the season' and not give Ole the job.

    Maybe having Ronaldo helped? But apparently for us these players are good enough and it's all on the manager if we lose any game.

    Unfair. Wallace was great at Southampton and his poor form at United was not helped by developing multiple sclerosis.

    Edit: Ole constantly harking back to the past is beginning to annoy me though. I’d rather he talked about the way he turned things round at Molde, though I suppose he thinks people wouldn’t be impressed.

    Zidane worked with that squad for 3 years, there's no difference bar Ronaldo, its his team! Ole's situation is more difficult! Having to take over from Jose with worse players than Madrid & still get amazing results! With no signings and an unprecedented injury crisis! Madrid are facing reality without Ronaldo, and Zidane is in for one hell of a ride you can guarantee that!

    You do realise Ole isn't talking about 1999 by choice don't you? He gets asked about it constantly, just like the questions about Fergie. It's 20 years since he scored the winning goal in the CL at the very ground we're about to play in ffs and we have to overturn a one goal deficit. It would be bizarre if he wasn't asked about it.

    Of course he is. It's one of the most iconic moments in football and it's the 20th anniversary this year plus he's asked about it in every single interview so what's he supposed to do?

    He won't park in the manager's space because he says it still belongs to Fergie...

    That is really grating and I love Ole!

    He won two league titles at Molde and you don't think people would find that impressive? And he's not 'harking back to the past' he's asked by journalists and reporters in every interview about his past at United and politely answers these questions because why the feck wouldn't he? He's part of Manchester United history.

    This pretty much, the 2nd line is especially true.
