The following theory was initially posted by Caf newcomer @Malicecooper. Personally, I'm not one to believe in conspiracy theories *deletes entire post history* but perhaps, IMO, this one has the outlne of truth. That is, unless everyone calls it nuts, in which case I'll pretend I've never heard of it & will bung a pile of Dislikes on top of
my sidekick ginormous noob nutjob Malicecooper. Here goes, folks:
Malicecooper said:Are we being duped by Man Utd? The Conspiracy Theory
Watching Utd play this season has inspired a conspiracy theory in me.
Did Utd actually appoint a new manager?. toward then end of last season and in the closed season there were two positions that had to be filled. The director of football and the manager. Ole was given the manager position and no one was appointed as director of football.
Or were they?
Ole is manager but actually he is showing all the requirements for the Director of football role and he is managing the team like a director of football would priorities and plan. He is actually not acting like a manager at all. This is where my conspiracy theory is.
Is Ole really the manager of Man Utd or is he only manager by title when he is actually the new director of football still acting as the interim manager?. The reality is that there were no managers that fit the Utd bill going forward available. I think that Utd want Poch but could not get him due to Spurs going so far in the CL and his contract with Spurs.
And now, suddenly a few games in Poch is destabilising himself at Spurs because his attention is elsewhere, well, Utd really. After last season Poch should have been untouchable this season and planning on improving his Spurs squad, yet none of this has happened.
So, my conspiracy theory is this. Ole is interim manager but will take his true post as director of football one an experienced manager is available that fits Utd's way forward. I believe Utd are waiting for Poch to be released or available from Spurs so they can then rejig and solidify the footballing business of the club. Ole has brought three players in, but to be fare these were no brainers and would actually be attractive to any manager coming into Utd.
Also notice that Ole cleaned out some of the weight but did not replace their vacated positions, all of which were key areas. I think this is because they want to keep this positions open as long as possible so the new long term manager can choose.
Otherwise what is happening at Utd right now really does not make any sense.
There, now i need to prepare for the CIA dropping through my ceiling and whisking me away to Guantanamo for whistle blowing.
