Why is there no thread banner?! Flipping LVG got one, this is quite frankly the most outrageous thing on this site since the last time glaston said anything.
Nothing? the fact we've even got close to the top 4 and actually competing for a trophy is a miracle.
This is the key part. Not only getting it right, but ensuring there is backing for this to be allowed to happen. Not signing people for the sake of it but those who will fit a style of play.3 years is a good amount of time. My expectations are:
Year 1: Comfortable top 4 and a slight title challenge. Win a domestic cup and reach the CL QF.
Year 2: Very strong title challenge. Challenge on all fronts and reach the CL QF.
Year 3: Very strong title challenge. Win a big trophy and reach CL SF.
Obviously the CL expectations depend on who we get drawn against but towards the end of the 3 years I want us becoming one of the favourites to win it. With how strong the competition is in the PL I'm not sure about winning the title, but I want us to be in the mix. It's been too long.
We absolutely HAVE to nail it in the upcoming transfer windows. We can't afford another dud window of signing flops and deadwood.
Yeah that's the flipside obviously.I feel you, but if this announcement meant that some of our players end up signing contracts and we can focus on finding transfer targets then I'm glad it's official. I'm sure players don't want to make a huge decision when they don't even know who'll be in charge of them.
I'd say trying to get certain targets in the door in the summer had a lot to do with it. Players are talking to clubs now through agents and want clarity.Think it is ultimately the right decision but the wrong timing. We should of waiting until the end of the season. We need no distractions.
Transfer targets should have been handled by the supposed DOF we were looking to appoint. I guess that won’t happen now which is bullshit. Van Gaal is right. If this appointment fecks up then Woodward definitely needs to feck off. All we need to do is identify and sign good players.I feel you, but if this announcement meant that some of our players end up signing contracts and we can focus on finding transfer targets then I'm glad it's official.

To be fair before he was appointed there was no expectation to finish top 4 or win a trophy. Those expectations would have been the same for any manager given how damaged our season was. The fact that we're talking about top 4 now is amazing in itself.
I don't think that is the case at all to be honest. Ole has W14 D2 L3. If any other manager got the job and had delivered as much as one less point in his first upcoming 19 games: there would be an outrage! I would surely back that outrage.... because if it works, don't feck with it! Ole also got us playing like United again.Happy for Ole and not at all surprised by the appointment. I'd have liked to see us wait until the end of the season just to see how he copes with defeats and how he performs once that "new manager boost" wears off. I think Poch would have been a safer option, but I understand he's probably extremely difficult to get from Spurs right now.
What sort of opinion is that? Are you saying that having Ole in the last 3 months hasn't been a good thing? What would a DoF say? "Don't hire Ole."Aren't we supposed to appoint a DOF first before letting him make a decision to pick the manager?
Complete reactionary club without a plan, doubt we will ever make it back to the top.
You are not going to decide what I want to say about this. Not now, not ever. I wasn't planning on discussing Poch either, I just don't think Ole is the right choice in the long term. But as I said, I would be happy to be proven wrong and obviously good luck to our Norwegian hero.Can we stop this now, and especially in here. One of the absolute best things about Ole being appointed manager is Poch the overrated will not be at United for the foreseeable future (if ever)
He's either going to stay at spurs or go to Madrid.
So how about just having a thread with some positivity, some congratulations and nice messages to Ole. Let's leave the Poch rubbish to another thread.
Congrats Ole! This news made my day and I'm chuffed for the lad. Couldn't happen to a nicer or more deserving bloke!
Precisely, Ole's real judgement will come next season. He's done superbly thus far and has more than earned his shot as the manager. If we beat Barca the Café will go potty, the players really need to get stuck in now, I'm excited for the future.Nothing? the fact we've even got close to the top 4 and actually competing for a trophy is a miracle.
The damage was already done by Jose, this is a free hit for Ole. If you told me we'd be in the top 4 race with 8 games left I wouldn't have believed you when he was appointed.
