Imagine wanting to sack Ole now, hilarious and stupid in equal measures.

25.1% want him sacked now the season has finished, madness.
What's stupid is not understanding how a poll works. You think those 25% voted in the last hour do you?

He did well and even approached the Leicester game with a very positive intent. He definitely deserves time and the backing from the board for next season.

Predictive text likely changed it.

Anyway, job one done from Ole. Onto next season (well the Europa as well).

Still have my reservations but he gains my full support going into the season and fully deserves it to be leading us into it.

Well done Ole proving the doubters wrong, I hope you and the club go from stride to stride now.

I agree with this.I still have some reservations about whether he’s the right man to take us back to where we want to be eventually,but hopefully my reservations are just misplaced.Hopefully he’s the man who will take us back to the promised land,which United supporter wouldn’t want that?Obviously Ole deserves to stay for atleast another season based on the significant improvement that we”ve made this season....Now he needs to be backed to the hilt in the summer....We need 2-3 big signings to take us to the next level,hopefully starting with Sancho...

It was over, the signing of Bruno was the turning point and the capitulation of Leicester helped as well. If Bruno hadn't of happened we weren't going to be anywhere near top 4
Need I remind you that we also overtook Chelsea? So no, it wasn't just Leicester capitulating and Bruno - we came through it as a team and today, we showed some bollocks when they were sorely needed.

Need I also remind you that we accrued more points than anyone during project restart, and that we accrued more points than anyone since Bruno came in as well? Long before there was any serious talk of Leicester being vulnerable.

Give the man credit, ffs.

Unlike the fickle lot in here who keep changing their minds with every passing result, which is totally perplexing, I have said he should be sacked 6 games into the season. I stick by this and always will. No one will ever be able to say “I told you so” simply because this totally inept manager will never come good.

And no, he’s not the next SAF before anyone spouts the rubbish that he was given time, so by some outrageously dumb logic, Solskjær therefore should.

We are the worst we have ever been. I am sick to the back teeth of us looking clueless, only for the camera to pan to Ole’s face looking gormless, clueless and like he’s on the cusp of crying because he knows he is way out of his depth.
I mean, going back over this whole thread is a peach, but picking one at random, this is a good one.

I've changed my vote in the poll.

Although I don't think he should be backed blindly going into the next season. If we are going through another period like last winter questions seriously need to asked.

He has to be desisive in the transfer window now. Getting the squad he wants together ASAP has to be his priority.

Editing my own posts.
Proved me wrong (and delighted to have been) and unequivocally earned his right to rebuild next year... still sceptical he has the tactical nouse to be one of the best, but it’d be churlish not to give him the BOD for the time being... we’ll reappraise in 6 months or so...

Well done to Ole and his players.
Quite the turnaround and considering the position we were in he was deservedly under pressure. I hope he's learnt from it and has grown. It's going to be a difficult season next year and our players aren't going to get as much rest. He needs to manage the squad better than he did at times this season.

This is just amazing. I bet if it was any other manager he would have got all the credit. Fair play to Ole. He has to improve but this has been a good season for the worst manager in the football history.

Guys, don't rub it on each other. Both sides want best for the club for sure. Opinions can be extreme at times but I am sure everyone is happy today. It's all done now. Lock this thread and move on.

I can understood those wanting to sack Ole in December to be fair. Although there were clear reasons why we were struggling, there was some justification in saying those reasons were excuses. It's the people who have said he should be sacked in the last 6-8 weeks that I will never agree with.

As thread creator I'm going to close this thread for now.

Ole achieved top 4 which was the requirement for alot of fans.

Still in the Europa League it's his last chance for a trophy.

For now my attention is not on Ole as a manager. He needs to go away in the post season and improve as a tactician and on how to more effectively use his playing squad.

Mine and our attention now needs to move to Ed Woodward and whether he's going to back Ole for the start of his third season. Or is he going to make the same mistake he did with Jose when he felt a big spend wasn't needed after finishing 2nd.

Over to you Ed.

I think a fair way to look at this, from the point of view of the doubters, would be;

Imagine your guy (be it Poch or Tuchel or whoever) had been brought into the club at that point and had finished where we have finished. You would be saying that it was a job incredibly well done. Now remove the blinkers and give praise where it is deserved for the guy who has actually delivered that.

Thanks Steve, likewise. I have always backed this guy and im delighted for him with what's happened this season. 1 year ahead of schedule IMO.

Next step now. Bring in 3 players to fill out the squad. I think this team is not perfect, but compared to where this club were under Jose, its not comparable. Im really happy today. Feels like a big day for the club
Likewise, I backed him to the hilt too, and I'm honestly delighted for him.

He's a kept a quiet dignity all season and carried himself like a proper Utd manager. After the team, he deserves today as much as anyone else.

I just hope he gets properly backed this time after he did his end of the bargain last summer in shifting out the bad apples and chronic incompetents, even though he got no direct replacements in for them.

No. I don't think Ole haters want the best for the club. Rather, they just want to be right.
The foolishly took a negative position early on, and have since just doubled down through hubris and arrogance.
They'd rather the club go backwards than admit they were wrong.

Very true. He's been a class act. Enjoy today mate.

At least have the balls to call out my posts directly rather than making veiled insults that offer absolutely zero to the thread.
:lol:

Do one.

And if you think that was an insult, then that post of yours is even more pathetic in hindsight.

We were terrible under fergie as well when it came to games such as these. He always set us up defensively.
I think the opposite the second time vs Barcelona. Had Giggs in central midfield with Carrick. Needed more defensive bodies to stop Iniesta and Xavi.

Why would anyone be pissed off right now?

Seriously you need to grow up and accept some people don't share the exact same views as you.
Feck that. When you see some of the constant drivel posted on here over the last 8 months or so it's been pathetic. I think it's fecking hilarious that they're crying right now.

I don't think so. I don't think there are hard supporters of a particular manager. They and I too initially didn't think Ole was good enough for get us into the CL.
Full credit to him that he has done what was expected of him. No one expected him to win the CL or even challenge for it this year.
Now next season it's going to be a different story. He has to challenge or this will be the same thing over again.
Every United fan want the best for Manchester United. The manager is irrelevant in that aspect. He should be supported if he is winning and should be changed if it's seen he is not capable of winning.

Don't be silly. Oles time in charge hasn't been perfect. It is improving and that's why the voting has gone from 60% of fans wanting him sacked to currently 25% wanting a new manager.

The poll has mirrored the feelings of the fans. Oles doing better now and therefore there are less people criticising him. No need to be hysterical or point the finger at people that have different views to yourself.

Any Man United manager is always going to be subject to critics.

Absolutely. It's also funny how the known ole haters have gone missing now.
