    He's doing fantastically well but I hope if he's already discreetly been offered the job that he bangs loud and clear on Woodwards door for huge transfer funds in the summer regardless of finishing in the top four or not.

    Clueless is harsh but inexperienced for sure. He's at the image of most of his players, inexperienced at this level.

    No manager, whatever his belief in youth is, will give chances to youngster while you need to a close big gap with 4th and have a battle on hand to get such position. Sorry but you seem to have weird priorities.

    Giving chances to youngsters isn't done by throwing us around randomly. It's about choosing the correct time and correct place.

    Learning experience for the manager and players. Hard to criticise too much, they have a better squad/team and a more experienced manager.

    Substitutions were forced on Ole and weakened us tremendously with regards to our game plan and execution.

    We all got caught up in the form we've been in but PSG are a different proposition.

    Ole said himself several times that he isn't scared to give the youth a chance, quoting Matt Busby.

    My point is, Sanchez is done, what's the point in keep trying him when he could give that space in the squad to a youth player.

    A win in a big game after losing two important cogs through injuries, and after suffering a bad defeat.

    Tactics were great yesterday (and to think, people though all he did was smile and make the players smile)

    We are top of the league in both points and goal difference since he took over. Yet some still aren’t convinced.

    Just wondering what the 'first actual real big test' is gonna be that he has to face and deal with according to some?

    Really don’t understand his lineup, we’re 2-0 down and 5 at the back with Young instead of Dalot?

    Start with experience, try to nick a goal and then take it from there.

    Just give him the job. Just look at the midfield we had to field tonight and we still went through against a much better side. Absolutely love him and will be devastated if we end up deciding against him as our permanent manager.

    We are winning the title with him in 20/21.
    Next season whoever wins the title will have us breathing down their neck.

    Might seem premature (and it probably is to an extent) but see no reason we shouldn't be aiming for it next year. Look at how Chelsea have often struggled one year then went on to win it somehow the next. With the right recruitment and if we maintain this current momentum, there's no reason we shouldn't aim for success. Even if we'd ultimately be happy with just properly competing again for now.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    The one criticism tonight would be putting Bailly right back. Love to hear his reasoning behind that. Other than that, as I said, just brilliant.

    It's a mater of time now until Ole gets the job.

    It goes against luck at this stage. We were missing 5 first team players,but somehow Ole pulled it off with the squad he had. Lad's tonight was a Ferguson perfromance, as in never give up hope on this team. He got us through exactly like SAF would. What a genius move with half a team. SAF beat Arsenal with Rafa and Fabio i midfield, he just had a magic to him. Ole came from 2-0 down at home with 5 first team players out and beat PSG 3- 1 at their place. He is the manager we need. That last night was the best United comeback of all time. And that is what we are known from. Lads Ole is the chosen one. If the club improves then he will be here for years.

    I too wish we could do it next season the same way Chelsea tends to. Difference is Chelsea hasnt been rotten systemically like us. We need to make proper adjustment to our play together with playing personnel then we can go fr the title hence the 20/21 timeframe.

    Think he's made a mistake throwing people back in after coming back from injuries especially when the ones that replaced them were doing well

    Matic big example

    Probably not my place, but I guess other fans views are welcomed here. I think it’d be a big mistake to keep OGS permanently. He’s done great in such a short period of time to bring a feel good factor about the club again. However I don’t think tactically he’s good enough for a side like United.

    I agree honestly, unless he shows me more these next few weeks. He has making very odd tactical moves lately, Bailly at RB, Pogba at LM practically, Lingard at CF for a game like today (makes more sense vs a team like Spurs, not Wolves who sit back more), etc. Look at how Poch outdid him in the 2nd half of our Spurs game. DDG was the only reason we won that game. He got outclassed against Tuchel, just got lucky in the Paris leg (sorry fellow Red Devils, but we got lucky that leg for sure), and got outclassed today by Nuno.

    I need to see more from him. I want it to work out, but this is why the club is smart to wait until the end of the year. He might not be good enough.

    He mentioned in the post match presser how United usually get going in April, as he did in the pre match presser. This has not been the case for a long time and usually was when we were going for the title/titles, find these cliches a bit cringe in our current situation tbh.

    Possibly Martial and Lingard too. They didn't look sharp.

    I'm interested to see how Ole reacts to these two defeats. We've gotten some fantastic results of late hitting teams on the counter, or through sheer will and effort. But what's not been spoken about as much prior to these two defeats, is how the actual football we're playing had been pretty average of late. And in the end it's the quality of football that will determine whether he's the right man for the job. It's probably already his job but there's no guarantee of any success, and if he can't get us to play fluid attacking football on a consistent basis, week in week out, he won't work or as the United manager we want him to be. So when people keep talking about THIS match being his test, I'd suggest that he's already passed many tests but this is the biggest one for any United manager. Can he get us to play stylish high quality attacking football the way Klopp and Pep have Livepool and City playing. As much as the result against PSG was fantastic this will be the barometer. And it is harder to pull off.

    We should aim for it. But we have to have a manager who can match Pep and Klopp and the coaching they've done at their clubs. We could do it given the players and resources we have. But the transfer activity and the management has to be of that level too.

    Here we go again. Ole will start getting sticks here.

    When are we going to start taking a closer look at the quality of the squad? I find it hard to blame a manager for a player's inability to do the most basic things well on the pitch. These same players were awesome some weeks back. Why can't they be consistent? Is that the manager's fault?
    I said it before and I will say it again and again, if all we change is Jose (and he needed to be changed), we can only go so far.

    Any other manager gets hammered for that non show last night but because its Ole at the wheel even with the handbrake on he's untouchable...
