    I just want Fergie back in all honesty. We’re desperate for him to steady the ship.

    But if not him, then the spirit of Fergie. We want his football, his mentality, his coaching. Just give the job to a legend. We don’t want negetive football anymore. We don’t want LVG possession football anymore. We want that united brand of football.

    Just give the job to Giggs or Carrick next. It really is the United way. It should’ve been done directly after Fergie.

    Let Jose finish the season and hand the job over to a legend. He can’t do worse than what we’ve had so far.

    LVG and Mou are good managers. We need to try something different this time. We have to go the barca/pep way

    I couldn’t agree more with the OP. It’s the biggest mistake in modern day football losing all that we have built up in the Fergie years. We are in such a mess now. I doubt we could get it back but should try before it’s too late

    I think in hindsight going down the Giggs/legend route would have probably been better than the way we’ve chosen, which I would have said was madness at the time. We are a club with an identity, and it’s been torn away from us.

    You should take a look at the track record of ex United players as managers.

    Yeah, it's the United way, making our ex-players the managers, we've done that ever so often after all.

    Not Giggsy, he hasn’t got the authority and respect to manage this team of individuals. If it had to be a legend then I wouldn’t say no to Bruce, but only because he’s the only one with experience and Hughes is just a big no.

    Edit: Keane is a good shout, but he would drop every player every few games and piss everyone off.

    Think it's bullshit about needing to prove yourself first. Not all managers are suited for all jobs. One manager can be the best at one club and a huge flop at another. It's about matching your ambitions and vision of playing football with the players available and the ethos of the club. Mourinho will go down as a great manager. But one who was not suited to United. Same with Van Gaal. Both far too conservative. This isn't about one preferring possession football and the other preferring counter attacking. You can do both and be suited to United. Look at Klopp and Guardiola. Both are closer to United's history then Mourinho or Van Gaal. It's about taking risks, doing that extra bit of attacking to try and entertain. Not focusing so much on defense or players making mistakes. But instead always focusing on how to make yourself better and not being worried about taking risks and making things happen.

    Hard to say "give it to a good manager". Plenty of good managers. They have to suit the club, and the only way people can decide that is through thorough a interview process, and then of course looking at their past. If they aren't experienced managers, then they have to have a damn good vision, have the right intensity and be able to inspire, and just have everything work out. Like Pep had for Barca. Like Zidane for Real Madrid. Like any manager who comes out of nowhere. They get their chance and get their reputation, but they need the chance first. So question is, can any of our past players be top managers? Butt is in charge of our youth team and is struggling. Neville probably not ever. Keane was just angry. Giggs is at Wales but never seemed the inspirational or manager type. Who knows.

    Point is, taking a risk on someone who has the right ideas and visions is sometimes better then taking someone who you know doesn't suit you but is proven.

    I would keep Mourinho for at least another year. See how it goes next year. We have built a good squad of players. Just need a few MFs and a FB in the summer.

    Would love to see someone like Peps style next. We have the players to do it. Maybe Poch.

    Giggs is more clueless than Moyes, let's see how he does with other teams first, Zidane and Guardiola honed their skills with B Teams before they were chosen. What's "he can do a job there" Giggs done?

    It might have if he’d been allowed to buy the players he wanted.

    Ideally we need a top attacking manager to come in, with a legend like Giggs as his assistant. Do this for like 5 years and surely then Giggs will be ready to take over. Right now he’s not.

    It really isn't the United way (it's the Liverpool way). We did it with Wild McGuinness and it was a disaster (though timing wasn't great tbf).

    So just tell Giggs to bin off the Wales job?

    Carrick? Based on what? Don't think he's got all his coaching badges yet?

    Solskjaer would be nearer the mark though even he hasn't shown ability (yet) to manage a huge club like United.

    I'm not arsed if it's an ex player, I am bothered though about it being a good manager, wherever they're from (Busby had City and Liverpool links).

    I always thought it would theoretically make sense to give the job to a club legend because it might make fans a bit more patient and willing to give the new guy some time to implement his ideas. That went completely out the window with the indecent haste that ye lot turned on Giggs when he had a brief crack at the job (and still slag him off to this day)

    The problem as well is that this is not France or Germany, where you have one team leagues. You have six teams going for all the trophies and then about 10 or 11 in the Champions League.
