    Refreshing, love the honesty.
    Beats the "we go again" bullshit players come up with.

    AWB too, the three guys coming in must be wondering what they have let themselves in for.

    Doesn't fit into their 'it's fine' narrative.

    That interview is an inside look into the chaos behind the scenes.

    Not good enough to beat newcastle? Come on!
    Ole and his "gameplans" are the problem, he is totally clueless and a wannabe SAF without any personallity...

    He knows exactly what's wrong, he was biting his tongue wasn't he, and he is livid with the terrible attack, he also mentioned "the whole system" as if he's fed up with seeing good players leave (He must have got on with Herrera I'd imagine too) and no-one replacing them. But the goal from Utd's own corner he mentioned, for instance, he's fed up with the attack being rubbish, probably fed up with Rashy and the rest of it.

    Correction, whole "season" not system.

    I think he says "the whole season is not good".

    He was obviously promised things and given a big fat wage.
    Same for Pogba, there were rumours coming up this summer about how he's unhappy that the club isn't recruiting the right players despite promises that they would.

    Made a huge mistake signing with us. Juventus would have taken him on a free and he'd have recaptured his form with them.

    Or even PSG too. He'd be playing in a tin pot league but he'd be winning and playing with top players.

    Can't believe he's chosen to stay with us for a bit more money. He should be competing for trophies not involved in a relegation scrap.

    Yeah for me his position is pretty much untenable now.

    Can you honestly not believe he's also staying due to loyalty to the club he's been with such a long time and a desire to turn it around? He knows his worth, but come on.

    The last bit is just hyperbole. He didn't have to sign a fat new contract, but he did. And that was just a couple of weeks ago. We're paying him more than he would get elsewhere and his "sacrifice" is trophies.

    Yeah, this. Sounded like the beginning of the end for Ole's time. Maybe not this week but its coming soon.

    DDG said what fans needed to hear. Sadly it's refreshing to hear that the shower of shite we've been watching is simply unacceptable.

    While we are paying him more he still would of got 200,000+ elsewhere and he has millions, look how upset he is, he obviously loves the club but doesn’t see us going anywhere during his playing career

    DeGea is seeing, with the failure to qualify for CL, not only this season but next season going up in smoke all around him, it must be so frustrating that the attack can't buy a goal. A good attack would also reduce the pressure on the defence, which is looking fine tbh, but exposed by the poverty in front of it.

    He sounded like he was repeating those things almost in disgust at that being the thing which he's being told constantly.

    There's also Mata (Spain), Pereira (Brazil), Dalot (Portugal), Rojo (Argentina) Fred(Brazil) shitting it up today and usually Lindelof (Denmark) Matic (Serbia), Pogba (France), Martial (France) Bailly (Ivory Coast) shitting it up on the regular.

    Funny thing is we saw some British midfielders playing well out there for Newcastle while Fred the Brazilian was taking the biggest dump at St James park this afternoon.

    Very much so. Luckily he's still young for a keeper and has time on his side. Pogba, 27 this year, I don't blame him for moving himself on in the summer.

    Good on him. If we had players like Giggs and Scholes playing right now and we were this shite they'd react in a similar manner. At least he gives a feck.

    He’d get a big signing on fee if he left on a free too but it’s obvious that he genuinely loves the club.

    He might be but he's a fool if so. He should have never signed that deal. The club is going nowhere. He's basically written off the last good years of his playing days really. By the time the contract ends he won't be anyone's first choice.

    I understand that. But for perspective, he signed a contract just 2 or 3 weeks ago! He knew what he was signing up for, he's not serving some prison sentence so I'll save my sympathy.

    The good news is that he's gutted, because I genuinely believe he loves the club.

    If we had players like Giggs & Scholes we wouldn’t be staving off ‘8 game in’ relegation but your point is very valid.

    It’s good to have a player who actually shows he cares.

    How did we concede from our own corner? I didn't see the game.

    Some of our English players are crap/overrated but Maguire and AWB have been our better players, Fred was abysmal

    Why couldn't someone foul and stop the counter attack?

    Good interview but interesting that fans really think Ole should come out and shake his head and say he doesn't know what is going on and it is so difficult.

    Probably not people that hold important jobs

    Glad he said this is the worst it's been cause it is.

    Woody has led the club down this path and makes the wrong decision time after time.

    A disturbing glimpse into what is happening behind the scenes at this club. And it's not pretty.

    The worst time he can remember at the club and his body language suggests that those who should be sorting it out are clueless and don't, in fact, know their cock from a pole in the ground.

    I agree, an honest interview. I used to like Ole's interviews but lately he's just pissing me off. Even today when he apologized for the poor results he added a but. Last interview our away form wasn't an issue, today he confirms the problem. Loads of bullshit in his interviews lately.

    When he is also asked to go up and play as a striker to try and get us 1 point against a Newcastle side likely to be relegated, you know we've got problems.

    Isn't that what Moyes more or less did when he said after the Stoke defeat

    ''I don't know what we have to do to win''

    Speaking of Moyes this is what he had to say on Ole before the game today

    “The boy Solskjaer is drowning,” he told Soccer on Sunday. “It’s well documented that I’m shite at managing football clubs, and I see a lot of myself in Ole. Physically, I look like Ole might if he’d taken a wee peak into the ark from Indiana Jones, and on the coaching side we have that same wee lack of everything you need to succeed at this level.”

    “I recognise that look of terror in Ole’s eyes,” said the Scot. “During my time I’d spend half an hour each morning staring in the mirror, smacking my own face, telling myself that the players knew I was an imposter. Most of them later confirmed they did think that, so it wasn’t all in my head, to be fair.”

    “The lad’s drawing games now,” added Moyes. “If he follows the same pattern as me, those draws will soon become losses and his wife will have to wrestle a toaster out of his hands on his way into the bath. I thank God every day that Pamela was able to overpower me and beat me unconscious with that toaster. But as I say, these things happen in football.”

    At least to me, his sadness and anger felt genuine. I have rarely see an interviews where a player looks so shocked.

    Two observations:

    1) He is insanely dumb with no awareness to seeing us being established as complete mediocrity in the next year when he signed his contract.
    2) He is more money greedy than we ever thought. He's not dumb and he could see this coming but valued money over mental well being

    Either way. Bizzare. He had an out.

    This is pretty much exactly how I view it too.

    Can't imagine Ole will be happy with David after that.
