Exactly. In 2011 Sir Alex Ferguson said winning trophies is key to keeping your job as manager. "You can fulfil all your ideas and philosophies about how a team is run and how they play. But I judge my success by trophies."
I'm still puzzled why Jose was sacked, I am sure the team wd be much stronger by now. Just like now, United were 6th at that point, so was it his fallout with Pogba, or the loss to Liverpool, or because Jose was generally disliked by the fanbase?
Nobody really kowns what the new owners think of Bruce. It's a fact that the club has not availed decent amounts for transfers as Rafa would testify, and Bruce was equally effected. So it's not a foregone conclusion that he will be sent packing...
Not sure Fred is solely to blame for the goal. The Utd midfield is not mobile enough to contain quick counterattacks, and Ole needs to sort that out asap because the next 7 matches are very tough fixtures.
