The sacking leaks begin..

Looks like Ed has started laying the groundwork’s for his fourth managerial sacking in the six years post SAF. This is coming from Simon Stone at the BBC who’s saying a massive defeat by Liverpool might spell the end for Ole.

What a gutless club we have truly become. Expect more of this crap in the next two weeks.

That midfield is no worse than Palace's or Bournemouth's. The defence is vastly better on paper.

People can dress it up and spin it how they like, 5 wins in 20 is appalling.

We've conceded 5 less goals than Bournemouth - they've conceded over 50% less.

We currently have the joint 4th lowest goals conceded across the league, don't we?

I'm not trying to spin anything - was just discussing it with you. I really don't believe you've seen enough of United to start stating that Ole can't set up a defence.

Attackers suffering due to poor Midfield too. Defense was bad last year, think we are stronger there. Buold from the back. Next up an all new shiney midfield cant wait!

The only issue I have with Ole is hsi failure to get the best out of what he has available. That'll be his undoing. I think his signings and targets have seemed sound as has his release of players that most fans wanted released. The issue was replacing them but I'm certain he didn't want a squad this thin so that's on the people above him.

I suspect he's doing some work behind the scenes as well (work that a DoF should be doing in reality) and that uses too much of his time as he isn't good enough to do everything. If he concentrated on playing matters, set us up to play to our strengths and gets us to play with more intensity there's still no reason why we can't be in the top 4 shake up at the end of the season. Lot of 'ifs' there though.

Funnily enough, as much as it could be a disaster, a game against Liverpool could be the ideal one to return from after the international break. The fans will be very supportive and if we could get a win (or a decent performance even) then that could be the confidence boost that's needed.

Excuses will be less with the injured players all back, and I concede an upturn will be desired.

Injuries have facked us, no doubt. And the ineptness of Woodward in the transfer market - and some poor decisions by Ole - has shown up the squad even more, particularly in midfield and attack.

However, the worrying thing is that everyone is having yo point to more signings being needed to justify Ole’s position. Because individually and collectively, there’s little way of improvements in the team since he’s come in.

The value in Ole wasn’t him being a chequebook manager, yet these arguments share all the similarities of one. We literally sacked the most successful chequebook manager in history for poor results and performances. Ole will suffer the same fate soon, short of a complete turnaround in fortunes.

Why is it that Liverpool play a lot more intensive football but have far less injuries?

They have everything in order at the moment.

So many injuries shows that you still do something wrong in the fitness department. Nothing changed from when LVG had 9 injuries.

Having a fit 11 for a while also helps getting results.

Our football is nowhere near as intense as it was a couple of seasons ago.

If we lose against Liverpool I could see him going , i bet they've lined someone up already
