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.

Losing to Comeback Winning!
someone needs to come in an put a style and standard of football as similar to the first team as possible - so it is an easy swap when they are needed
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.

I may be the devil, but i'm not a monster
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.

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

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!
