    United's Next Board would be a relevant thread.

    Obviously we'll go for Poch, just as he starts showing the first signs that he's on the wane :wenger:

    Uniteds next manager

    Well, there can only be one (party) good enough ..

    : Redcaf management of the round table, cannot find any better
    (Have a closed board and do the tactic talk here, use football manager for scouting, but wait .. you will need someone to blame .. who might that be .. hmm .. Steve Mclaren maybe ..

    There we go. Redcaf choosen knights & Steve under a giant umbrella

    (Sorry Steve, yours was the name that popped up in my head .. the umbrellas fault) :)

    In 3 months you will have to win the league and be runners up for champions league - there shall be pressure at a place like United

    Remember cheewing gum!

    Poch, and I think as early as next season? Oles been trying to find a system, continuity with, only been 4 games let's just see how it pans out?

    Something tells me it's not going to happen for him? Only because all games so far we could have won them all? Creating opportunities is different, to turning them into match winning? Need to win games sometimes by creating and getting 1 or 2 chances?
    This is how you win titles big games etc, making the most of the moments you get in games? The opposition so far Bar Chelsea have taken them . And that's where I think ole will fall short.

    Roy Keane?

    Would love him because he may just punch out Woodward before he leaves.

    As I've said, we've just signed Ndombele, Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon - how is that struggling?

    Last summer we didn't sign anyone due partly to a lack of funds and partly because the players we wanted weren't available. A DoF isn't going to fix this and nor would they be helping if they tried to intervene in any issues internal to the squad - because those would be rightly for the manager to sort out.

    My own view is that if you have the right manager then having a DoF is at best pointless and at worst a recipe for conflict. And if you don't have the right manager, then you need to fire the one you have and appoint a new one.

    Recall Moyes and give him a new 6 year contract. #returnofgollum on social media.

    Well if for some reason we knee jerk fire Ole this year then I’d go for Nagelsmann, Allegri if you want more experience.

    Pochettino. It’s just so obvious.

    You'd think so wouldn't you, but United doing the obvious just doesn't seem to happen.

    Pochetinno in, and Woodward removed, then we can maybe finally move forward.

    Sorry, are you suggesting the board should already be backing the next unidentified manager as opposed to the current manager?

    Yes Rodgers would be a choice of mine. look how hes got Leicester playing. If it hadnt have been for Slippy G, he would have probably be managing a successful pool side now.

    Why would any top manager want to come to us right now? The squad is a mess and the owners / CEO are just an even bigger one.

    If LVG n Jose can crash and burn like they did then I don't think it's out of line to suggest anyone will. The problems stem from above but they are too stubborn to change it.

    Poch is now the only one.

    Guardiola and Klopp will never ever sign up for the job now.

    If we chose sentiment over a manager who is....

    A) Annoyed at his own club
    B) Proven track record in the Premier League
    C) Proven to develop and introduce youth
    D) Looking to manage at a TOP club that can compete in the transfer market
    E) Clearly better than Ole

    Then we're mugs again. I can actually see Woodward and the Glazers sticking with Ole as he's the ideal scapegoat for them when it properly hits the fan. They clearly don't care about the success of the team on the pitch or they would've signed some midfielders this summer.

    There's little evidence to suggest that Pochettino is especially annoyed with Spurs, except perhaps in minor ways far outweighed by his positive regard. And the club has just delivered him NDombele, Lo Celso and Sessegnon, with Dybala still in sight for January … which means we can now, with the stadium built, compete in the transfer market.

    Moreover, United is no longer a "TOP" club compared to other options available to Pochettino should he wish to leave Spurs.

    I’d rather a hierarchy of,

    Woodward as CEO Of Business
    Van Der Sar as CEO Of Football
    Solskjær as Director Of Football
    Pocchettino as Head Coach
    Keane as Assistant Manager

    If Ole is sacked he should no longer be at the club in any other footballing capacity. Keane should never return either.

    They should be looking for the next manager yes. A good board should always be looking forward especially when results have been how they are.

    So, Solskjaer should become Pochetinno boss, and tells him who he can buy, who he can't buy, which tactics and pyholosophy poch should play?

    If you didn't like Mourinho, you won't like Allegri either.

    Has to be Pochettino, the job he's done at Spurs in the last 5 years in taking Spurs into the top 3-4 in the league consistently on a much smaller budget than the other top 6, bringing through a number of youth players and building a team that plays good high pressing football and a squad that suits it and all while the club was building a new stadium and reached the Champions league final to boot. I don't think there is any other manager out there that fits what our manager profile more then Poch and he is the manager who would get us competing for trophies again.

    i feel Giggs would just be the same as Ole, try and play the classic counter attacking football and relying heavily on nostalgia

    If we ended up getting desperate its a fall back option to provide stability until we can find a more progressive manager. He wouldnt fight againdt his own team and board like Mourinho at least and his prime is not finished yet.

    No point in guessing now since it's a few years off.
