    Even if it is Ole to takeover I don't think the club should announce anything until the end of the season. Avoid all distractions and focus in on finishing this season in the best position we can.

    I'm in the Pochettino camp but have never be necessarily against Ole as such. Ole is making this job his not with just results but also with the way he carries himself and speaks. Pochettino is no where near being a sure thing to come here even if he wanted to and that adds another unnecessary level of difficulty to his potential appointment. I'd suggested we go all out for Pochettino and have Ole as back up but hiring Ole first doesn't mean Pochettino can never come here, if anything it makes it easier for that to happen.

    Even if both Spurs and Leicester had beaten us , its a still good return for him. I for once, never expected this 10 wins in one stretch. I was one among those who thought we could be in relegation mix in a month or two.

    Having said, we should not make a call now. Lets give it 1-2 more months before confirming anything.

    I reckon we’re announcing this before the Liverpool game to boost morale.

    Quite a bit of 'throwaway votes' on likes of Rose, Fonesca, Gasperini, Setien, Gallardo and even Wenger, Conte etc. If this was werewolf, I will be calling those voting on these names as wolfy twats.

    The tide is slowly turning though. Two games ago Ole was still on around the 500 mark and Poch was very high 900s ;)

    I have voted for Poch and am unwilling to change because I fear I might jinx Ole

    Not risking Utd's luck for this!

    We are winning the treble and after that it would be obvious who our manager should be!

    It's looking more and more likely than ever. Every passing of a game his chances are only getting better. He knows the club through and through. Has the United DNA in him. Finally feels like watching United of the old. We have to retain our current backroom staffs though.

    Big shift over the weekend, Pochettino has lost over 20 votes and Solskjaer continues to climb. Wonder what it will look like tonight??

    For some reason the poll hasn't been reset. Some of the options on there at this stage are just crazy.

    Big few weeks. This next set of games will see how much we have improved. If Ole can produce a big home performance at old traffford like Fergie used to then it’s going to be difficult to go against choosing him. I’m not expecting us to get knock PSG out. But I wanna see us give them a proper game at old Trafford.

    the gap has really closed now! The tyrant ( :lol: Poch would still make a huge amount of sense) has almost been overthrown!

    Well I honestly didn’t understand why he went there in the first place. His job there probably made me a little sceptic of his management capabilities until I learned about the mistakes he made. In 2013 he was also probably too young to take on United. But I was thrilled when I learned he would be the interim, super clever strategy that from many angles.

    Like I said a couple of days ago, making a decision now is brainless. This match does not disqualify Ole but it should give the people who keep insisting they have to install him as permanent manager now pause. Let's see how the team reacts over the coming games.

    It's not an insult to say Tuchel is far more tactically astute than Ole, because he is, and he is better than most in this department. Hopefully we can make a much better go of the second leg, but I highly doubt it now..

    Well why ? We were definitely going to lose at one point. There's still at least 2 or 3 more losses coming in the rest of the season. That's not an indication to anything.

    I do hope we are looking at Tuchel - it should be Tuchel, Poch Ole as our options.
