    Clearly... but I think there is a big difference to not picking the right guy to the actually club being a problem. Manchester United club is not actually that much of a problem but the selection of picking managers and assessing their performance on the field is terrible.

    It’s why Mourinho gets a third season when he clearly took us as far as ‘he’ could go and why we’ve received this stupid pitch about long term vision watch is the worse long term planning since Moyes 6 year contract.

    I agree with fears of sacking Ole and changing the plan completely but we have no principle we allow every manager we hire to decide them and it’s a joke.

    Excellent, well-written post. The leadership will always be reflected in the end product. Our product isn't very good at the moment is it?

    good to know we actually share similar opinions. You're correct that the club isn't the problem but the people who run the club becomes the club and as a club, we are incompetent. But get the proper people, in the correct places, there is nothing to suggest we can't be competing very soon again.

    Who doesn’t love Disneyland? That was s good pitch. Should have offered him a lot of money. Anyway, we have another attempt with Mauricio Pochettino.

    I really don’t get the Ed hate. Ok I get it as he is a horrid little man but is it really all him?

    He is doing exactly what he is told by his bosses. He gets a brief and clearly follows it else he would be out on his ear. Why are we not hounding the real problem at the club???

    Because we don't see them or hear from them. Ed on the other hand, is the most egotistic ceo of any club, other than Perez maybe. The guy is always talking crap and leaking even worse stuff. Also, if he doesn't like it, he can leave!

    But yes, Glazer's should also be targeted!

    Let's be fair, the pitch wasn't the best, but it was more timing than anything else.

    Had we got Klopp back then, we'd still be managed by Ole right now. The management above Klopp would be Ed Woodward and ultimately he's unfit for the job.

    Another exhibit of how arrogant Woodward can be. He thinks we are Manchester United and we can do whatever we want and are the place to be. The fact that the guy contributed zero success to this club acts like he made this club is what infuriates me the most. The day we signed Maguire he was acting all giddy by waving at the media and walking past them. The guy has killed the club singlehandedly.

    Ya, but it’s better than hiring someone who doesn’t fit into Ed’s vision.

    we aren’t desperate for trophies, just progress to begin with. Everybody was happy with ole at first as progress seemed possible. Everything was going well until PSG. Those injuries changed everything. For some reason we lost that spark and it doesn’t seem he can get it back.

    It's not Disneyland so much as one of those Christmas wonderlands you hear about that's got one sick deer and a couple of 6ft elves on their phones in a car park.

    Sounds as bad as a zoo I once visited - empty cages with signs on them like: 'Benjamin the leopard (deceased)'.

    He has turned into a defensive manager since that psg/liverpool week. For some reason he abandoned the reasons he was given the job in the first place

    Any new manager will face the same problems Ole's dealing with. A thin squad. On huge contracts. With big egos. Plus an over reliance on youth. Disneyland would be an exaggeration atm. We're more like Camelot. A dusty wreck.

    Klopp is a Christian version of George Graham camped in the opposition's half. Ed Woodward had no idea how to approach such a man.

    I wonder how he’ll pitch the job to Pochettino, now that Ole is most likely reaching the end of the line.

    I seem to recall reading that his methods have previously included team building events in the mould of secluded, survival-like get aways with his players. Breaking arrows with your throat and the like. Maybe this time around Woodward will play the man instead of the cards, and liken United to a sporting version of The Walking Dead.

    Leading a motley group of shellshocked survivors into a dystopian nightmare. Where moments of brief serenity are sparsely sprinkled in between the gut wrenching decisions, sacrifices, cruel and casual losses with only hunger and chaos as steadfast companions?

    I think he might go for it.
