Ole and United standards

Are we lowering our standards to suit Ole, because we love him?

Does anyone really think we will win the League or the Champions League with Ole? If Ed means to appoint Pochettino, I think he should do it right now, without waiting.

I don't think we have progressed at all under Ole, despite significant spending. We still look like a team who will be in a battle to scrape 4th, zero chance of challenging for the title, and little chance of winning the champions league.

So basically what we have been since Fergie left. I still cannot fathom have he has ended up with one of the biggest jobs in managerial football, with his lack of cv.

You make it sound like we've spent an absolute bomb and teams around us haven't spent a penny.

Teams like spurs and Chelsea have also spent money, and both had squads with players that worked well together, and we were light years behind liverpool and city pre ole, so of course we are scrapping for top 4

I doubt we will finish top 4 this year.
We are still light years behind liverpool and city.

We have spent a significant amount on absolute band average players.

Look at put first 11. How many of them would get into liverpool or Citys teams? Zero is probably the answer.

Considering Ole has basically improved our squad quality while steadily removing deadwood from the team, maybe you should ask just how poor we have been the past 6-7 years.

People like Robb have a vendetta since Jose left, the others are the ones who came in when we where at our best and just cant understand that it takes time to turn around teams like ours especially with the ownership structure we have here.

Ole deserves a full season. He may relegate this team but it will be unquestioned he will leave us with a better foundation than any manager has left us with (Fergie included). If and when that great manager you all know is out there comes, he will have no excuses.

Till then, Ole's at the wheel. Deal with it.

Ron we easily beat Man City in both league games last season and if Phil Jones hadn't played, we most likely would have knocked them out the cup.

Ron I don't think that Liverpool squad is even that good. They just have a winning mentality. Last season Liverpool lost the least games and Man Utd the 2nd least games. Both had near identical stats but one team finished on 99 points and the other on 66 points. We threw away points in games we should have won nearly every other week. Liverpool won games they could easily have drawn or lost.

Perfect example, the Chelsea game. We completely nullified them and had the chances but missed. We must have 10 draws like that last season were we were the better team in the league but failed to win.

Interesting that in our first 2 home games we conceded as many goals at home as we did in LVG final season 19 home league games. Crazy when you think of it like that. I used to find it funny when they kept saying LVG was the boring manager when teams did what Inter Milan did at the Nou Camp in 2010 nearly every game at OT and LVG was considered the boring one. That is one of the reasons why we conceded 9 home games that season as everyone tactics were to put 11 players inside own box for 90% of the game as LVG would be the one being trolled.

I mean 9 home league goals.

OGS has won the CL and PL as a player and knows what it takes. Poch hasn't. In fact Poch has never won a trophy as a manager while OGS has won many in an unfancied side.

I find it laughable that certain United 'fans' want Poch in at Old Trafford. He's never won a single thing as a manager. To be totally fair to Ole, he has won 2 league titles and a domestic cup already as a manager and everything else as a player.

Poch is potless! Makes no sense.
