Ole: 'The best thing since sliced bread'.

Recommended Posts

I figured this is bound to come up, so thought I'd create the thread to discuss and debate the idea. 

Ole is the right man for the club. I wouldn't be against him staying longer than this interim period. There are many reasons why, but perhaps the biggest of the lot is the fact that for the first time since SAF we've brought in a team that knows what is required at Manchester United. We've suffered with a lack of identity for some time now and Ole and his team are the ones who know what that identity entails, more so than anyone else. 

In terms of youth, Ole already has some key youth products of his own in Rashford, Jesse and importantly Pogba. He has the respect of our possible key player, and with the introduction of Gomes and possibly Greenwood and Garner, he has a healthy core of youth that will play for the badge. The use of youth is also something Ole has spoken about recently too. 

His team is also something to take note of. Carrick and McKenna seem to be far more joyous at every goal scored and will undoubtedly be more involved than under the dictatorship of Mourinho. But they've both got the experience of Phelan to feed from who I feel will have no issue with staying on at United. It's been claimed that he master minded SAFs last league win. Amongst them all, you have a team who knows what this club is about more than anyone else out there, and they know how to win too. 

Ole himself has been praised in Norway, winning the league with Molde and being praised for his man management and treatment of young players. He's also learned from the best, SAF, and bases much of what he does on the man himself. The will to attack is already evident in our play, albeit a bit unorganized, with an aggressive press looking likely as well. 

ZZ and Pep have followed quite a similar early career. Anything can happen, and of course it's more than likely he's off in the summer, but what if he pulls top 4 out the hat? What does he need to do to be seriously considered for the job?

I'll reserve full muppetry until after Spurs. Things look promising so far, but there are obviously going to greater challenges ahead. Hell, even Bournemouth ain't no push overs.

One game at a time. 

Of course. I've taken the extreme stance in retrospect (and to annoy the dickhead above this post) but the question stands, what does he have to do to be considered? Also, is just losing to Spurs enough to not consider a guy who would have been at the club for a couple weeks, against a manager whose been at that club for a number of seasons? 

What about the idea that he might be the right guy regardless of results now, of what in essence is a rabbit out the hat scenario for him currently? That he should be allowed to build? I mean, is there really a manager available to us who can inherit a pile of shit mid season and beat Spurs comfortably two weeks on?

Its such refreshing and astonishing to see how one individual can change things so drastically. He saying he is so happy with the buch of players he is working with is completely in contrast with what Jose had to say about the players. 

Thanks a ton to OLE and also to SAF/Ed to bring him back.

When you thought you couldn't love the guy more.

ME: Ole I don't think I could love you more. Considering past glories.

Ole: "Hold my beer."

Still think of all potential MUFC managers he has the best chance - he is a fan favorite and currently in place so if his fate is in his own hands. If he manages to get top 4 and a deep FA Cup run then I wouldn't be against him staying because his football style is alright and he knows whats required here. I just wish the club would back him a little bit and sign a central defender plus possibly a right back on loan.

It's true. Mbappe is already established so Martial is the next most promising striker.

Legends will score even if they are marked heavily. Even if they are goalkeepers.

 

Totally maligned player. He only get to play 4 games for Man United. And though he made a mistake against Southampton, the mistakes were nowhere near as terrible as what Karius had made for Liverpool.

Anyway the goal he scored is proof of his utmost quality. This is also the best thing since sliced bread (at that time).

God I remember him, MOTM against Liverpool in debut if I recall. Let's be honest he was not terrible, he had moments of quality, shame about the errors.

Pretty clear that the first team is coached by a directorate. Carrick, McKenna know the squad best, Phelan taking the lead on the touchline with Solskjaer overseeing involved mainly in the attacking aspects. I wouldn't underestimate Phelan - he's probably the main guy on tactics and is far and away the most respected and experienced.

Phelan specialised in putting out cones, squashing balloons and talking to the BBC due to Ferguson’s refusal to deal with them.

Ole has started out very well, but let's see how the rest of the season pans out.

Arsenal away in the cup was a shitty draw considering what other teams we could have drawn.

It would have been good for the board to buy the quality central defender we need in this transfer window, not write off the rest of this season and then look at it in summer, when it might take six months or so for him to settle in. Plus would show some confidence in Ole.
