    I don't want to sound as if I want him out but we all know that he won't be here unless he makes it to top 4. Certainly the club won't take the blame for it which makes Ole the obvious target.

    Nah, don't think that would be very likely at all unless we have a run like the final 10 games of last season.

    This would burn me.

    Woodward signed Jose to a long term deal in Jan of 18. Then Woodward did not support Jose in the 2018 Summer window. We went thru transition this winter with no additions in the Winter window. Now here we are again with little support in this Summer's window.

    Clearly at some point Woodward can NOT just blame the manager. He needs to own his (in)action. He is setting them up for failure.

    The narrative is already building up nicely. Its pointless having scouts/DOF since Ole only trust British players who are overpriced + how can anyone say that the club hasn't support him when they brought him the world most expensive CB. Its BS (actually it tells half the story) of course, but rest assured that they will be used.

    I've yet to meet owners doing the mea culpa. Sacking managers is cheaper especially rookie idealistic ones.

    We don’t know if it’s on Ed or Glazer’s on how much United can spend.

    If it’s Glazers, there’s not much Ed, or any new CEO/DOF can do.
