But what about the rest of the coaching team? he is there with enough experience to really help, give a good advice when needed? Only Phelan have some sort of experience and then it is nothing all that special. Maybe if we do keep Ole, we should add someone in the caliber of Bielsa or similar as the assistant manager.
You gotta be kiddinģ?

Someone of bielsa caliber taking instruction from ole gunnar solksjaer?

enough with this. Stop rewarding mediocrity. If you're not good enough it's you who should get the boot, not bringing the better manager to come and assit you.

Bielsa as ass man to ole gunnar solksjaer.... let that sink a bit

For me this is the most worrying aspect of this tenure. The team is trying as hard as it can from what I can see, and we’re still languishing in mid table and in what can only be described as relegation form.

So what happens once the team tire of the poor management they realise they are playing under and Ole loses the dressing room? It’s unfathomable.

A team that is trying it’s absolute best being worse than Mourinho’s self destruct mode days demonstrates how awfully inept this manager is.
Those names werent even running when we're losing. Trying hard? I don't see that. All i see is weird facial expression.

Personally Woody (Toy Story) had to be sacked before Ole and a DOF appointed but forget that ever happening so at the end of the day Ole should be sacked after the derby because he just looks way out of his depth. I admire him for taking on the job but it is time for a change now before we end up back in the bottom half of the league again.

I do worry that we will end up going down the interim route again and then stupidly end up giving that person the job on a permanent basis just because of their status within the club.

We could win these next two games against City & Spurs and I still think he should be sacked,have seen enough since March to convince me of that.

Standards are truly gone at this point if those briefs are accurate.

We are finished as a top club.

Lads let’s have some positivity Ole will sack himself and hopefully we will fortunately fall on Poch. Luck and a miracle is the only way we will be a top club again with these clueless owners.

Some talk about him telling the players he could get sacked if they don't get positive results in the next two.

I think that's what will happen.

It's sad because he's a United legend, but the sooner he goes the better. It's just not worked at all.

Time's Up. We won't get points out of the next two and that will likely leave us in the bottom 6/7. THE BOTTOM 6/7.

I had patience but I don't see a miracle happening over the next two games.

Current form is relegation fodder.

He won’t walk because he wants his millions in compo. He’ll be sacked after City. How much have we spent on sackings since Fergie?

He won't walk because he wants to stay in the job and be the manager, doubt he's thinking about compensation.
Exactly , it is valid to criticize him for the performances and the results , under Ole they have not been good enough so far.

But to suggest he is only here or hanging on for the money is utter nonsense.

Is this a joke?! We haven’t even played in the FA Cup yet and you claim we are “still in it” like it’s some kind of achievement on Ole’s part :lol:.

Absolutely nobody had expectations of us winning the PL, nor does anyone believe we’d be winning everything with this squad under another manager. But they do believe we would be doing better than 4 points above 17th after more than a third of the season has passed. And winning more than the same amount of games as Newcastle and Villa.

Patience?! What are we waiting for exactly?! And how long is it going to take to get there exactly? We would love to be enlightened.

People lack any sort of understanding of the players we have?! So you’re saying the players aren’t good enough? And who does that responsibility lie with exactly?! Is it not down to the manager to ensure the team is good enough?! Or is that now no longer something a manager should be held to account for?!

You’re insulting people’s intelligence suggesting that they are on a “witch-hunt” or do not understand what kind of squad we have. Maybe people actually do understand football, and what should be expected from a manager of a top PL team, and this is why they simply believe the manager we have right now is inept. It’s not difficult, nor is it a misunderstanding on any fan’s part.

Perhaps you’re the one who doesn’t have “any sort of understanding” and rather than a witch hunt, you’re on some sort of blind faith Ole bandwagon.
Did I say we played? I said we are still in it.

Yes patience. Nothing is fixed in days, weeks or months. It takes a year or two to see improvement.

Yes, players are not good enough. I thougt they were but I was wrong. As soon as Pogba and McTom went injuried we fell apart in the midfield. How many time should people point out that with "better" players and top class manager we were slightly better. So how do you explain that? Mou fault? VanGaal foult? Is it Always managers faoult? Are players immune against criticism?

If you feel insulted than so be it. I didn't inslut anybody. Just said that this wichhunt is out of order and that people should have more understanding and patience.

I used to like looking on here to see different fans opinions etc but so many of you don't understand what it means to be a fan. I get that in some people's opinion Ole's out of his depth but people showing pure disrespect to the point of ridicule and even wanting us to lose just to see him get sacked can get fecked. You are not fans and maybe if you climbed out of your basement and experienced life a bit more rather than post 10'000's of messages on an internet forum, you'd lose your stupid hater mentality. The current state of our squad is not on Ole - Even Pep would struggle to get results in this league fielding a CM pairing of Fred and Pereira. The signings he's made (regardless of how well they're playing at this current time) are a much better fit than a lot of previous signings under Jose and LVG. His win-rate percentage right now doesn't even matter, what can you actually expect with the injuries we've had? Obviously the UCL is the aim this season but with our shift in transfer philosophy it's not even essential. I think this season is about seeing what youngsters can step up and what current players are good enough to be with us going forward. To write him off in December when he's had no choice but to field very perhaps the weakest Man Utd side in PL history (through injury and lack of quality) is stupid. It's called a rebuild for a reason, when he's had a few windows to build a team capable of representing the shirt then it will be fair to judge him. We've all been very spoilt under SAF but one thing is for certain, all you burt-hurt Ole haters do not represent the people who go home and away supporting the team. Thank you and goodnight.

The only one who can help man uniter now is S.A.F if he is willing to come out of retirement.

Ole is too raw and poor him he isn't giving as much time as he can.

Actually it sounds like you are just intolerant to a view that doesn't fit yours. It's not even like it's a fine line: we're debating over a Manchester United team that's got 4 wins thru December.


And a quick reminder...a manager like Pep did do better. By a lot. Honestly give it a rest. If you like Ole, then by all means say so. But don't pretend you're somehow a holier fan than the rest of us that don't agree.

Top red alert

It's not an opinion - Ole is out of his depth.

You are not a true United fan if you are happy watching the club languishing in the bottom half of the table with a manager who belongs in a tier 5 league. That's not disrespectful to him either, that's just his level as a manager. The signings were par for the course, but even with £130m of reinforcements Ole can't get a tune out of the defence. The performances are going backwards, injuries or not. The players' belief in Ole and his plan has evaporated. Culture my arse. And no one we'd want to sign is going to want to come to the club at this point in time to play for Ole. Them's the facts.

Up against it tonight. Big team talk at HT. We're always poor in the second half and this time he doesn't have a single game changing option on the bench.

What do you mean, we have two left backs on the bench!

Its clear as day our squad isnt as bad as everyone makes it out to be. You don't just fluke consistently good performances against top sides. Why we can't find a method to translate these performances against other mid table teams is on our manager.

Ole in. This average team is exactly where it belongs, wouldn't change with any manager. We needed investment in the squad in the summer transfer window. Ok performance so far anyway, only reason we aren't winning is because of a wondergoal and possibly a handball.

Never been a big believer in the bad luck narrative but THAT was bad luck in the first half. Should be 3-0 up.

This is a very strange example to prove this point. We have clearly been the better team, where as individual errors cost us and individual brilliance got them a goal against the run of play

McTominay coming back has helped. We've had an empty hole in midfield without him.

Ole in all day long. Fantastic first half display absolutely bossed them, so gutting for the error at the end of the half
