First half - yes.

Second half - absolutely fucking not.

Look like he told them at half time, that's enough for today boys, time we play that abysmal brand of football the fans so clearly fucking adore. Sick of the cunt & his god awful 'football'.

Have been chatting with mates of mine all evening about who we want to replace him when he inevitably goes.

I’ll probably get slaughtered for this but I’d give it to Olé. He gets United more than probably any ex United player, and that includes the class of 92.

Would put the romance back into supporting United, for me anyway. The man is a club legend, he’s won the league in Norway and he’s already given us so many unbelievable moments supporting United... He’s infinitely more qualified than Moyes anyway (not that he should be the benchmark!!)

And before anyone says “winning the league in Norway doesn’t qualify you to manage United” don’t fuckin bother... neither should winning the first division with Preston

Sounded like a good performance in the first half, job done, 3 points, no complaints.

As usual there are complaints, going to be the way of things from hereon-in.

I've been thinking about this a bit lately and I honestly can't come up with anyone, not one genuine candidate for the job (well, not since Phil Neville got snapped up).

Worse still, I'm not sure I even care.

We done alrite, but they were shite.

Started excellently but just coasted after being two up. Whether the players took their foot off the gas, whether Jose wanted to hold what we had, who knows. It does seem to be a regular occurrence though.

Great to see Sanchez get a goal. It's a shame Jose decided to take him off. Sometimes, when a player is playing well, you should just leave them out there. Frustrating.

The legend that is Ole isn't a bad shout. Keane? Ancelotti?

I don't think there are that many top quality managers knocking about at the min. Zidane has done wonders at Madrid & has that ability to pull big players but who knows what he'd be like in England. Wait for them to sack him maybe?

TBF i'd settle for anyone who doesn't make watching United a chore. Jose (for the most part) is killing me. I think Arsenal game was the last time I really enjoyed watching a game we were in.

I'm just confused about why it didn't auto type 'I am deluded' when you typed 'Keane'.

These are strange days.

I like the sentiment but sadly that's what it seems to be to me. He was awful at Cardiff, yes the owner is/was a knob, yes it was only Cardiff at the end of the day but still........

I love Olé, totally different class as a player and more importantly a human, I even named my son after him but I'm not sure he's got what it takes, having said that I would love to be proved wrong.

I still think it's a structure issue with United. Being the "manager" in the way SAF was & Wenger is, is all but impossible now, the job is just too big, too demanding.

I think we need the full Director of Football, Head of Talent Acquisition and First Team Coach approach. I see other clubs with these set ups and they have a more clear vision of what they want and how they plan to get there, they recruit far better than we do/have and they have a squad that understand their jobs and know what's expected from them.

I'd say all of that has been missing from Utd for the last 6 years, the title win in SAF's last season totally papered over the cracks.

The legend that is Ole has now won the league twice in Norway I think, and the first time was the first time Molde had done it since 1722 B.C. So it's not like he took over a dominant team. He went to Cardiff which was mission impossible and I think he has won it again.

I agree with Bondurant I was stunned to read lew956's suggestion of Keane. Unless it was to come in and play midfield where he could probably put in more effort than Jogba.

Laughing be honest I only suggested it because I thought the similarities of Keane at United & Zidane at Madrid & could think of fuck all else, ex player wise, who could take the united job. He isn't the man for the job. Doesn't change the fact there aren't really many established managers out there at the minute who you'd think could do well at United & not bore us all to death whilst doing it.

I think we should take a chance on a younger manager after Jose leaves.

Because I'd like us to bring in a manager who has something new to offer the club/ league, not just more of the same.

We've tried the experienced routes (several) with Moyes, Van Gaal & Jose & if we're honest with ourselves, it hasn't really gone to plan.

Looking at the history of the club, the two managers who stand out from the rest were two young managers we gave a chance. I see no reason why we shouldn't honor tradition.

If you’re talking about Sir Matt & Sir Alex then I’m not sure either backs-up the claim that we give untried and untested young managers a go. Let’s be honest, when Sir Matt joined Manchester United was not a big club, not a successful club, nor a particularly famous club, therefore the risk in the appointment was relativily small. SAF was in his mid-forties, had dominated Scottish football and managed the national team in Mexico, he was hardly a punt and he was also wanted by a number of English clubs, he was very much established.

United now, thanks largely to the two managers above, is huge. The pressure on the manager is immense, a young and largely untested manager will never be a viable option. We need experience, we need someone who is proven to cope with the demands of a big club. There are very few options, even fewer that are available, fewer still that are better than Jose. This is the cold, hard, reality.

Talk of The legend that is Ole, or indeed any ex-player, has a great romance to it, but managing United isn’t a Mills & Boon novel, it’s as tough as it gets.
