In fairness I said sensible not positive
No one I know is saying we’ll win the league - far from it in fact.
What I mean is that they’re willing to give Ole a chance, are happy we are focussing on youth and are glad to see us rid of divas like Pogba.
Yes but this is what I mean, positivity cannot always be tied to sensibility. Pogba is probably our best player, so selling him probably isn’t in our best interest if we actually want to build a team that’s capable of competing with the best. Focusing on youth? I’m all for youth but imo this isn’t the summer to do that, you focus on youth when you already have a functioning team with leaders that are winning major trophies. What we needed is two or three world class talents or at least on the cusp, with the right personality and attitude. Liverpool signed Salah and Mane to enhance their attack, we’ve so far signed one championship winger and Lingard, Mata and Martial still hanging around without a worry in the world when they simply haven’t delivered for years. Ole is still to win me over tbh, I’m not going to blindly pretend that everything is going to be ok when our final game last season had us losing 0-2 to a relegated side, at home. Trust needs to be earned, being a legend of the club on the pitch has little to do with his ability as a manager.
