Wondering if the display on Saturday has speeded up our pursuit of some key positions?

It's a must we have people in for the new season.

Fletcher had nothing to do with being a ‘technical director’, despite his title.
Most of his work is with the youth teams and being a conduit into the first team. He shouldn’t be affected by this appointment.
Yeah more of a change in job title to reflect his actual role I suppose.

All this notice period stuff at a director level is a nonsense really. Get it out the game.

Signing other clubs' directors instead of their players is a bold strategy, but let's see if it pays off for us.

Give it another year and these guys might finally start working at United.
Would rather delay a year so the new ownership can show they aren’t taking these tiny clubs’ shit anymore

Well, these positions were either vacant, non existent, or held by clueless bank managers so it cant possibly not pay off

No it doesn’t. Let people work where they want. Life and especially football ain’t that serious.
So why not do the same for the manager, for the players etc.
Let them go wherever too? You can't because it's daft.

They can sign a contract or not sign a contract, it's up to them whether they want to or not. Whatever Wilcox has signed, that's what he will be held to, and rightly so, it was his choice.
Certain terms in contracts aren't legally binding if they impinge on certain rights. Don't know about this situation tbh, but the general argument that whatever he signed should be held to doesn't hold up in all cases. I could sign a 60 hour work week contract for example, but it doesn't mean I'd have to or should have to do more than 40 hours. Would this gardening leave stuff hold up in court?

Don't sign old players and cast offs

If you signed something in a vague belief that it didn't really matter that would be a shade dumb I think. I'm no expert so I would read every thing very carefully first and seek advice over anything I wasn't sure about personally.

Yep, I think they were hoping for a smoother resolution and the current events might throw a wrench in planning for next season. This is part of the reality we are going to face in the transfer market as well, so it might be a nice reminder for them that when it comes to United other teams have a different approach. Of course, that is a part of our image that has to change.

That being said, what Newcastle and Southampton are doing is great when they are in the position of power but could backfire when they start searching for people.

Not very clever to have a 12 month period. If you doing great in your job and knowing Southampton is only a stepping, why would you put in a 12 month period? I would never accept a 12 month period. There are so many unknown like your boss sucks or the culture is bad. 3-6 months would be good enough.

In senior roles in business (not just football) 12 months is quite common. Normally it’s a point you can’t negotiate much if you want the top jobs.

All these people being linked with operational and executive roles really underline how little the Glazers did to remedy an aging and failing structure.

So sir Alex and David did all of those jobs that we hire some many people right now, just by themselves? Impressive

Wow So United are targeting Hugo Viena Lisbon's sporting Director for COO position how stupid these so called ITK are , they should just stick with making shit up about players transfer because other wise they run the real risk of making fool of themselves .
