No, he's being super nice and cozy because he doesnt get rid of 10-15 players in the one whole transfer window he's been the permanent manager.Is it really a ruthless edge though? There are a good 6/7players still here that many people would have been calling to get rid off last summer as well that we are seeing on peoples deadwood and outs lists.
I personally am very much on the fence with SOlkjear so far. I like that he is trying to do things the United way in terms of playing style, transfer purchases, youth player focus and I like his optimism. I do also think he so far whether it is him or the board hasnt done enough each window liek I mentioned. Another 2/3outs last summer could have been one more incoming signing. I expect 3 in this summer and 4/5 out.....8/10 out could be 4 signings.
I like his optimism and drive. But I am still not so sure of the tactical nouse, man management and motivation is there to keep consistency with the players throughout the season. You watch us and we are like the late Wengers Arsenal days. There are periods you start to believe we can start to challenge and then periods you start to believe we simply are nowhere near good enough.
Post lockdown was a perfect example of this. The firs half of it we were enjoyable to watch again, scoring goals and playin gexciting football against admittedly fa weaker sides. The second half of it, we were mainly absolutely dreadful and outplayed in most of the games despite the results.
The current premiership is of course very difficult to challenge in when there are two sides, with two fantastic managers and points tallies the last two years that would have won any premiership season in history. Solkjear has done a good job so far, has been the only manager since Ferguson who seems to understand the club at all, all the predecessors were actually cluseless and two of them far too stubborn and arrogant to adapt to the club expecting the club to adapt to there philosophies.
But is he the man to take us back towards the top, Im really not so sure
