    I can't believe he didn't say what I wanted him to say, do what I wanted him to do, and sign who I wanted him to sign!!!

    Great press conference so far.

    I wonder if he ever has a read of RedCafe?

    Yeah you cant say the squad is good after saying “I will be successful and some of these players wont be here next season”. We’ve handed out contract extensions and it’s our better players who are linked with moves away.

    Summary is, he praised Pogba a lot. Said we haven't received any offers for the player we wanted to off load. Greenwood will play lot more this season.

    Pogba has a heart of Gold, he gives his all, wants to contribute to the team...

    He probably didn't believe everything he said, but that's better than the negative tone Jose set (whether Jose had case to moan is a different topic) in first press conference last year. If we get Maguire and Bruno, sell Jones, Rojo and Darmian and probably sell Lukaku and get decent striker who can be a good back-up, I will be satisfied with the window.

    "Jesse and Paul were walking around and it's been portrayed as a fight between the two boys"
    "it looks like it's going to be a media ... I don't want to call it a ... but it's an agenda against Paul"

    But Ole.. it's the club's twitter account that posted the video! We need better content creators :lol:

    Fairly good PC. Said he wants a few more signings and also protected Pogba which is a right thing to do but never said he's unsellable.
    The fact that he kept on reiterating that there's been no bids for our players more or less makes it clear that Pogba is for sale but we're not going to alienate Pogba and make it easier for Madrid to sign him.

    He said just what I wanted him to say, so he’s all foam and no beer; he did what I wanted him to do, so he’s a crowd pleaser, he signed exactly who I wanted him to sign, so he’s Ed Woodward.

    Basically said Pogba is under contract, will honor it and there has been no bid.. If someone wants it, pay up. or feck off.

    Sensible... the right thing to do as well.. If Pogba stays on then there is no point isolating him..

    Hazard was sold for ~130 with 1 year left . Pogba will have 2 next summer.. We can get ~150m for him next summer as well. wont go cheap this summer.


    Excited to see the new additions.. the signings and the youth players.. We'll add a few more as well..

    Ole handles the media well, it is good to see after José because I hated his pressers and was cringing half the time. It is clear we are being overcharged for players we want after what Ole just said, that has always been the case for United, but it is getting even worse. I wonder if Ed is regretting his cock sure comment that we can do things in the market that other clubs can only dream of doing?

    I don’t get why people are so annoyed with Ole? He’s doing the complete opposite to Mourinho. He’s not telling the fans that he’s given Ed a list of targets and that it’s all in Ed’s hands. He is not airing our dirty laundry in public and I like that. It doesn’t make him any less of a manager in fact, it signals the sign of a proper Manchester United manager. We need to keep our s**t together and behind closed doors.

    Only thing I am excited about is Greenwood getting more game time next season.

    Ole must be Glazer's/ Woodward's dream. They don't have to worry about any negativity or dodgy comment that puts us in a bad light or could get us in trouble.

    Seems to match up with his reputation as a Glazers yes man who will accept mediocre transfer windows which cement out position well outside of the top 3. Also sounds like Dan James is actually intended to be a first teaser with that "chip in" comment, he got 4 goals in the championship last season playing with far more space in behind the opposition then he'll get at United so I wouldn't expect too many from him.

    Watching Mourinho and Benitez at press conferences is always a bit interesting, you never know what would happen. Both would probably have even better carreers if they were spared the press meetings though.

    I think it’s tricky to answer questions about the deadwood. He said they weren’t good enough last season and he was right, but if there isn’t interest in them or the offers are no good then he can’t afford to totally alienate them. He will need those players at various stages of the season even if they’re not first choice and even if they’re not really good enough.

    I’m sure he is still of the same opinion as last season that some of these players aren’t right for us but it may take more than one window to remove them. I mean honestly, who is gonna buy Phil Jones from us!?

    Love ole. Will stand by him until its terminal. But how can he say he's been a great professional 2 weeks after telling press at a media event it was a good time to move. Absolute utter bullshit there. Sure play it down, but no need to kiss his arse after he gave the entire club the finger.

    He’s doing what you would expect the manager to do, Jose did complete opposite and got nowhere. No point taking everything literally, actions or lack of them will speak louder than words in the end.

    Yeah, this is how I see it too. They are not good enough but we can't sell them. So it's better not to alienate them.

    I hope he understands that if we end up with an underwhelming transfer window then his own career and reputation will be on the line. This squad is not fit for purpose and we need more then just a championship player and Saint's reject to change that. Also Woodward won't think twice to throw him under the bus if things go wrong
