    Not surprised, his teams performances were awful, and the results reflected it, only watched the U-23s on MUTV but it was painful viewing.....is this another thing José was right about ?

    What’s Paul McGuiness doing these days?

    I note that Neil Ryan is the under 18 coach. Any relation to Jimmy Ryan

    I met Mcguiness and attended a training session of his once and I loved what I saw. He could put the likes of Jesse and Pogba in their box.

    Who was responsible for hiring this dinosaur in the first place? I remember the disappointment when his appointment was announced.

    Makes sense and puts the recent youth signing rumours in context.

    Root and branch.

    He fills the team full of young strong lads who are going to hoof it and knock the opposition players flying ;).

    First team style is to have no style at all, random mess.
    First team standard is to be poor, lazy, laughingstock and rubbish.

    Easy job, just hire anyone.

    I have to thank Ricky for one thing. He made the reserve games so appalling to watch that I gave up on going to them and started watching the Women's team.

    This proved to be great as they were well coached, seemed to play as a team and showed flair, individual skill and collective effort to win their league.

    In other words they did everything that Ricky failed to do looking after some great talents.

    Hopefully this is a positive sign of the club moving in the right direction.

    Not surprised he’s gone, I watched one of his training sessions and the players looked bored to fecking tears.

    Our U23s sitting in the middle of the second division sums it up nicely. He needed to go.

    Sorry, but there is no excuse at that level to be playing crap football. Much like it is for the players, unless you’re Warren Joyce style, it’s the perfect place to blood young potential managers where they can express their ideas and style.

    Aaaaha.

    I have struggled with seeing why he was rehired and why he has been kept on. If the voices claiming Butt has been doing sound work was right, this strengthens that belief.

    Things got so bad with Sbragia that Neil Ryan had to step in to coach the 23s on occassions.

    Was a weird appointment to begin with. Should have left after the relegation.

    He was Sunderland gaffer. He should've done better really with a bunch of reserves after coaching a Premier League side.

    He has let himself and his family down.. big United fans too so will take this personally!

    Neil Wood is one of the names being considered for the role.

    Would rather he got the job than giving it to Warren Joyce again as good as he was the previous time.

    James Ducker saying it's unlikely that Joyce will be given the job.

    He's only recently been relieved of his duties at Melbourne City and some of the journos are putting 2 and 2 together.....

    Think Mark Dempsey might be in with a shout.
