Why does he does this?

And is this the reason we drew with Southampton?
Its because he learned to be a manager on football manager, so its how hes used to doing it

Why don't we have people up in the stands who can get an aerial view of the pitch and notice tactical shifts and relay to Ole on the sidelines? Like defensive coordinators in NFL football
This needs its own thread.

Because, like the rest of us, he's incapable of watching football without an extra screen to keep him occupied.

I always wonder if people see a joke in a thread and think it’s funny so they copy it or they just come straight in to make a joke everyone else has already made?

Least he doesn't have a Filofax like LVG

Real managers stand in the touch lines screaming at the players, not playing on their iPads

Honestly I hated that thing and how often he would write in it.

I did like LVG though, despite the utter dreadfulness of the football.
The Filofax just added to his lustre for me.

I’m with you though – it was shitty, turgid football, but he was a brilliant character.

Probably watching porn. We need to start playing some horny football in the second half.

If a camera ever managed to catch him from an angle where we see the back of his head and the actual screen it'd be the most viral meme since those Ghanaian boys danced underneath that coffin

Some great posts in here.

I presume it's just the replays he watches? Surely watching it on tv must be a couple of seconds behind the game?

It's not a screen, it's a mirror. He's constantly getting lost in his beautiful Gollum eyes.

I really do think he is following Kylie Jenner on Insta and keeps refreshing the screen in hope of her nude arse pictures.

Just a humble Advice (since he is on caf as well)!!!!! Mate! Try having Playboy subscription

Ole is keeping an old friend in a job.

The screen he watches at matches actually belongs to Clive Tyldesley.

He provides the commentary from his living room while the match is on :devil:

He’s either refreshing the match day thread or he’s got it for the fake fan noise.

Wondered about this all my life tbf. I cant understand how managers can get any grip of watching the game all the way down there.

I think thats why Solskjær does watch his Ipad alot.
