Pep, Klopp, Ole, Tuchel, Brandon, Mourinho, Ancelotti Allegri, Conte, Gasperini, Pioli, Flick, Rose, Nagelsmann, Zidane, Simeone, Poch, other?

If money and or past affiliation was not an issue, whom would you hire to run United?

One of Klopp, Nagelsmann, Pep

Dislike them as much you want, but Klopp and Pep stand for attractive and successful football.

It is sadly Pep I guess. Flick runs him close though and Zidane is quality as well.

Why no Erik Ten Hag? Going to end top for 3 seasons in a row, his team plays great football, even in Europe after his best players all got sold. Defensively sound team, Attackingly free flowing, tactically great and his team play according to an actual system. Patterns of play. He is a bit of a weird chap, not as charismatic as our previous managers but tactically better than all combined. Our only shot at a good manager I'd say.

Ole should be nowhere near this list, not even a top 10 PL manager. He is lucky to inherit such a squad and have such funds, but tactically he's pretty horrible and I doubt any topclub would want him.

There is no Superman manager out there in the world, they all have their flaws.

I'm not anti Scottish, I just wanted Moyes out.

Yeah I agree

We might play against him in the Europa final!

"right now"

Klopp is a mile behind a ridiculed United right now. Klopp is a mile behind Leicester right now. He's behind Chelsea who sacked their underperforming manager mid-season. He's behind bloody West Ham led by David fecking Moyes. He's behind a Tottenham in such a turmoil that the resident Spurs supporter has been hiding in India for the past few months.

Klopp isn't the best manager in the world right now.

Peter Bosz is now available. Sign him and make him the next real deal in managers

You think he is? Would be interesting to hear your points, but I think it's clear he's awful. The brand of football after almost 2.5 years is absolutely appalling. After investing what? Near 300 million?

People who are fans of Solskjaer more than the club are convinced the likes of Bayern and Barcelona would be all over him should he be available

Well the actual question that was posed was which manager you’d take to be United’s manager if all of them were available.

I think the vast majority of fans, if they were being objective, would take Pep or Klopp.

Pep, gutted we didn’t nab him in 2013. But then I wanted Jose so what do I know.

Nobody’s said this. Ever.
You can praise other managers without shitting on our own, you know.

that's obviously not true is it

Even people who think Ole is doing a good job realise that when he does move on from United he's unlikely to manage at this level again (this level being a club of United's size)

I am just shocked that Ole is included in this list, in my view he has done nothing to be included amongst these managers and more than enough to not be included. I love the guy as a person but he's out of his depth, so was Moyes, not their fault.

Guardiola right now. Conte has done really well everywhere’s he’s been. Flick has been amazing since taking over at Bayern.

Otherwise

Simeone
Klopp
Rodgers
Pocchetino
Nagelsmann
Ten Hag

As for the question, answer is Pep

He's been the best for ages now even when Liverpool won a couple of things with Klopp

There is no list, the OP just named a ton of different managers. Get over it

Yeah, we missed out on Zidane too.
Tbh I’m not bothered about Zidane. 3 champions leagues is brilliant but now they’re rebuilding you find out just how good a coach they are. Pep has proven he can build a great City side (albeit with the entire GDP of Abu Dhabi) while Zidane is struggling with Real. I’m not convinced he’d be any better than Ole if he was here, probably worse tbh.

I didn’t even quote you, mate.
But you could’ve just made the argument for Ten Hag and actually stay on topic instead of just turning this thread into yet another never ending loop of “ole is shit” - “no he’s not”.

That said, I think Ten Hag falls short of most of the other managers mentioned. He should get to a top club in a top league before he can be assessed properly in my opinion.

Pep is my pick, followed by Flick and Klopp. Zidane and Simeone deserves a mention as well, though I think they’re in the echelon behind the top 3.

Can no one stay on point in any single thread without taking a chance to shit on our manager? fecking tiring. The question was who is the best manager, pick one and fecking move on.

Pep, I guess, especially if I get the bottomless bank account that has helped build City to where they are.

Back to back Champions leagues, no one else has accomplished that, I don't think he would do worse.

Biased obviously but can't believe more people aren't putting Tuchel higher. The job he's done at Chelsea has been miraculous, especially given the lack of time available for training. Surely he's ahead of the likes of Bielsa, Nagelsmann, Ten Haag, and Rodgers to name a few. 2 goals conceded in 14 games is ridiculous, and even more so for a mid-season appointment.
