Time to get rid of Maguire??

Apparently liked a post on social media which says players are upset at the fact they’ve had a 25% pay cut due to their failure to qualify for the champions league.

Clearly he’s outed himself now as someone who has zero respect for the club. ETH can make a huge statement and demand Harry Maguire is sold asap even if it’s for £5m to a rival. If United want to get back to the top they need to be ruthless when it comes to this kind of behaviour. Cast your mind back to Fergie dealing with players 10 times better than this pretender like Beckham, Staam and RVN

The club chose not to go for Conte, it may tun out to be a mistake but I udnerstand why. The club hope that with EtH we can build some solid foundations and actually build on them and have some kind of stability and for many years. Conte is a very good manager but also very volatile and maybe doesn't have the track record of a manager who wants to stay for long.

Ralph was a mess but again I got the thinking as we wanted to wait for our main targets which were EtH and Poch. Ralph came in and took over a squad in complete disaray and not being a permanent choice meant the players didn't ever get behind him. He offered his services to EtH but he wants to do things his own way.

It all may f-ck up with EtH like it has with previous managers but I can at least see the club trying to take a different approach this time, one many fans have been crying out for for years.

I wasnt really making the case you should have gone for Conte in particular, i have read plenty of Utds fans view about long term building something! SO i understand that.

But decision-making about sacking Ole (and probably appointing him in the first lace and then persisting with him), the timing of it, how he was (or wasnt) backed in teh window and then once you have sacked him, what happens next. Appointing Ralph as a temp was a very odd decision on many levels. I bet if you had gone on for Potter you'd have got him, may be even ETH....but to have another caretaker just sends such a bad message, and he was pretty clueless so its even worse.

These decisions have now lead to where you find yourself, and to a degree it was inevitable that you'd fall short especially where Spurs & Arsenal were upping their games. Players paying for it with wage cuts. And if you appoint a rookie in ETH, dont back him massively, can you expect top 4 next season when Spurs and Arsenal are strongly adding to their squads.

We need a CB.... But we don't need one that much

Ten Hag has a 10 year record of saving clubs money, The Glazers love to save money. 17 years of these parasites and people are still not connecting the dots.

As for Maguire, U23's until his contract expires or someone is stupid enough to buy him but that won't happen, this puppet insulted every fans intelligence minutes into his first press conference by saying how good he's been for us.

Crouch said on his podcast a 50% wage reduction for relegation is common place now, although teams may 'renew' a star players contract to navigate around it if they are highly valued.

Can see why failing to make CL, if a team is accustomed to being in it, could be treated in a similar way. Cost of that team and status of the club I don't see the issue. Have you seen the Man U wage structure? This would be impossible to enforce unless it was in the contract I'm sure, and the fact is most Man U players are massively over paid as it is, based on their recent success.

People can complain but I'd argue they are still earning too much. Doesn't mean all of them deserve it but the vast majority, including maguire, are fortunate to even be at United. And I say that as a guy who hates United!

This 'No CL' reduction isn't a new thing. Not sure why it's such an issue. The clause has been written into every new contract at United since 2013.

And the club and supporters are siding with him over Ronaldo.

Because we don't see their contracts, unlike yourself

It's been known for 9 years!

Interesting that there is much less outrage about a player who has failed to report for training amid an inconveniently late transfer demand than for a player liking a social media post ostensibly in support of the striking player.
