ETH

Am I an ETH in man, yes so long as I think he can do well for us, otherwise I'm an ETH man out.
But I'm an in man currently. We are young, we have Fergies habit of late wins, that's because we think we can. We've found our supersub.
Against that, he doesn't have great game management.
Neither for or against we have had, and are having bad luck with injuries.
Buys, Rasmus and Lisandro top-notch. Casemiro and Varane good, Onano and Mount, wait and see, Antony poor.
What's the feeling now lads, OK or point him at the door that says 'Do one'.

As for the manager, there has to come a point where people realise the problems are bigger than any manager can fix.

I think ETH could do the job but the club needs to change first.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think most United supporters (on here) understand this.

No manager was ever going to succeed under the structure that the Glazers have expected all the post Fergie managers to operate under. Now with INEOS moving in and taking control of sporting matters we should expect things to start to change for the better.

However ETH is still lucky not to be sacked already. Losing 0-7 to Liverpool is inexcusable... he deserved the boot for that.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We were actually in a good place going into that game and the result was out of the blue. It was also a bit of a fresh result.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It was a terrible result.

Especially from where I come from.

If terrible results were a sacking offence then yes he should have been sacked for that one.

However I suspect you are doing a bit of leg pulling here because it would have been utterly stupid to sack him then.

And credit where its due btw - Onana was superb today.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Wait. What?

No way.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Eh?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Superb?

Absolutely not.

His distribution at times was incredibly concerning.

It would have been.

But no United fan has ever actually thought that one day United would get beat 7-0 by Liverpool. Even when we have been in much worse positions. Its never been a real thinkable posibility in the history of the club. And this was also on the back of shipping 6 against City at Old Trafford earlier in the season. And thats another story, although that has happened before.

I think quite a lot United of fans are.

I think many are hoping to see things improve via INEOS not ETH.

Like most of the squad, ETH has the rest of the season with somewhat of a clean slate to earn his place next season. Whilst this season has been pretty miserable, I think there's enough mitigation to look at last season and not think this season is the norm.

He's a good coach, clearly. It may be that United isn't the place for him to be but if we part ways in the summer then I expect him to go and do a decent job somewhere else.

Pretty much the whole squad is on audition now and I think there's only really a handful of people I'd have as dead certs to be a part of the first team next season but I'll give pretty much all of them a clean slate for the second half of the season.
