    Paddy mentioned he would've liked to have returned but that "someone at the club" didn't want him back. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that person wasn't Woodward.

    Hopefully paddy was in Woodward’s ear complaining, we know he’s as passionate as the rest of us.

    There seems to be something going on with him and us. Sitting next to Ed, posting an Insta video on the way with the tagline “Lets work” where he says “off to work” plus he’s recently been posting more pro Utd stuff (I know he does anyway but it’s ramped up a bit).
    Perhaps he’s coming on board in some behind the scenes capacity. Whatever it is, I’m for it because Pat is a great character and absolutely loves the club. He’s also a winner and we need as many of those as possible right now!

    You can tell hes taking this seriously. Pogba was trying to joke around him on camera yesterday and he was having none of it.

    Yay. Usual caveat of not knowing anything about how good a coach he is/the kind of job he's doing aside a winner and a positive influence among our youngsters can't be a bad thing.

    Plus one.

    And I would also think that his positive energy would make a whole lot of difference. He seems like a person that you want hanging around. Really excited by this. Will hopefully be noticeable in a couple of years when positive youngsters grow into great footballers.

    Yep. I think he'd make a really good assistant manager. The good cop to the bad.

    You can see he has that personal touch and is very passionate/loyal and sticks to what he believes in. Pogba clearly adores him and i'm sure many of his other teams mates do too.

    Aye, obviously we don't know the ins and outs so we can't say he'll be a runway success in this role but it looks good, and I look forward to seeing how he gets on.

    So Paddy Evra joins OGS (manager) Carrick & Phelan (assistant managers) and Nicky Butt (academy manager), all of which are ex-players from the Fergie era and hold prominent roles at the club.

    Is there a link forming here, as in the club is trying to surround the squad with winners from the most successful period in its history? Logical move all things considered.

    He's only doing his badges here, he's not a long-term employee as of yet. Hopefully that materialises though if he proves himself.

    Such a man crush on this guy. Just seen the video of him giving Daniel James his POTM award, we are in desperate need of characters like him on the pitch.

    Oh, I wasn't aware of that.

    I hope they make it permanent as I've always had a soft spot for Paddy.

    Sounds like nepotism to me.

    Still, he loves this game so it's okay.

    P.s. not sure if I'm trying to make a point or not.

    Imagine Patrice giving a lecture to the kids about being responsible, always thinking about what their behaviour can do to the club's image etc. while they're watching him french-kissing a turkey on their phones.

    The way Fergie always wanted, I remember him saying that he wanted us to emulate Liverpool's boot room strategy of having former players taking roles in the club. I think this will only be a positive and its effects will start to be felt when we have cleared out the deadwood and built up a proper team.

    Certainly cant hurt to have him around the club. Character, leader, winner. Will make a refreshing change to have those traits at the club

    This can be a great thing for our squad. He can threaten them by making them watch him suck a raw chicken off if they don't start scoring some goals.

    Evra genuinely loves our club, glad he’s around if he’s crazy at times.

    Agent Evra to keep Pogba happy? :drool:

    Just kidding, very happy he is at the club. If nothing else he should lift the mood.

    For sure, that was in no way a telling off. It's all good though, obviously we need to work hard but if Evra can be a friend first, boss second, probably an entertainer third, that works for me.
