Finally!!

This is what I want to see. Someone who actually is a forward thinker and tactically astute with a clear playing style. https://youtu.be/mZskzUKsNwU

None of this sideways, slow, incoherent football we have seen from Ole with a clear lack of coaching.

Yes it’s going to be a huge culture shock but the players who can’t manage to adapt should be sold and the next manager should be one who best fits this type of style.

He will definitely have to earn any upstairs appointment that follows his brief tenure.

Sound like that might already be written into his contract before he starts.

His appointment as a consultant or DoF or whatever shouldn't depend on what he does for 6 months at the helm. His track record is what should matter!

You'll see better football. As if I were a United fan, after what you've been served up the last 8 years, I'd take it.

Better than a shiiit sandwich, with shiiit instead of bread?

Not sure I'm ready for that, GT

It’s only a good move if the full-time coach has similar ideas about the game to Rangnick, and plays in a similar style(s), there’s no point in him imposing a certain way of playing for six months then we hire a guy who’s the polar opposite.

I know it sounds like a ridiculous thing for the club to do, but we had twenty years of high tempo, exciting, risk taking football which brought us success and the club hired four fairly negative managers in row after SAF left, so I wouldn’t put it past them…

(From the MEN)

Ten Hag has a lot of traits that suit 'The United Way'. He plays attacking football and puts a lot of faith in youth.

He’s also tactically flexible, despite tending to play with a 4-3-3 formation during his time at Ajax. In-game, this sometimes switches to a 3-4-3, covering all the important areas of the pitch. The ability to adapt during matches is something United have been lacking and this could be a key attribute the board consider when making their decision.

Sounds right up our street
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Aye, if it is Ten Hag with Rangnick moving upstairs then I’d doff my cap to the decision makers at United as it would finally represent some joined up thinking and proper future planning.

Dare to say exciting times could be returning

Sorry to beat the Poch drum but it also makes sense for Poch/Rangnick

But I do take the central point that it is seemingly a good sign that future planning is in the lexicon of the club finally

Easy, son. This is Manchester United we’re talking about.

The more you read the more it sounds like what our players need after so long with no identity. But it will be a steep learning curve and we may suffer some poor losses imo during that period. Hope he’s strong enough to see it through though and not cave in to the pressure, and stick with whatever plan he has.

One thing for those who know more than me about him, if he has this masterful reputation amongst other coaches and such knowledge, why is his managerial cv relatively poor? Looks like he jacked managing in fairly early to go upstairs in other roles, and never really got the chance to put his coaching skills into practice at a ‘big club’? Why did those that took inspiration from his ways end up at the big clubs before he has?
