That's another CB sorted then!

Hopefully he's another that can help with our defensive issues.

Seeing how woeful our back line has been during the two preseason gamescohe would definitely help the youngsters.

He won't be a bad signing. Was always quite good in possession orientated teams anyway and has a lot of knowledge to give to our youngsters. I have heard he will be doing a lot of coaching too. Decent signing.

how can you say it'll be a decent signing?

he was gash as a player when we sent him to west brom and im guessing in that time he hasnt turned into maldini.

he has come from Rochdale with little to none coaching experience and is coming in as an over age player for the u23's.

decent signing me @rse

So you don't think that the U23s can learn from training and playing alongside an experienced international?

Manchester United's head of academy Nick Cox spoke to the club website to explain the decision in more detail.

"Across the academy, we have always taken an innovative approach to ensure that we continue our proud tradition of producing world-class players capable of excelling in Manchester United’s first-team.

“This new role was carefully considered and adds yet another level of support for our players in helping them to play at the highest level possible.

“We believe that Paul is the perfect candidate. He arrives as an extremely highly recommended coach but also clearly still has a lot left to give on the pitch. This unique combination is invaluable for our Under-23s team and will further drive the professional standards of the group.

“As an academy graduate, who has had an outstanding career, Paul knows the club inside out and can pass on this wealth of knowledge every day to our young players.

“Paul will now form part of a team of dedicated experts once again bringing the best external coaching talent to complement our existing group.”

So a promising coach comes in who can help the youngsters develop and you don't think that is a decent signing?

No, its a potential to be a decent signing if it works out, but on the flip side it could be a total waste of time, nobody knows because the guy has very little experience in the coaching side of the game

But he used to play for us, so meets all the criteria required to be on the coaching staff. What other credentials could you possibly ask for?

Well he does have his A Licence coaching badge and has spent time coaching our U16s.

I think it is a great idea personally. The young defenders get to learn from him and he can tutor them. Likewise, the forwards to get play against a seasoned international defender, which will help them prepare for if and when they make it into the first team. The kind of experience and challenge that will have been missing since the B league was scrapped.

I can't comment on McShane's capabilities as a coach but having our reserves playing with and against more experienced senior players can't be a bad thing. There would surely be some benefits to having qualified staff who can not only coach players in training but also guide them on the pitch when playing alongside them in competitive games and against them in training too.

I firmly believe and have done for many years that a set number of first team players at every club should play for their reserves if they've not played for their first team at the weekend or midweek as it would not only improve the standard of competition at reserve level which is badly needed but it would also help those first team squad players with fitness and sharpness.

We should also try and involve the actor Ian McShane as well. He's a United fan and his dad was a former United player.

Granted, he's a bit of an antique these days, but I'm sure he'd bring some love, joy to the club.

He's been signed to exclusively coach and play with the u23s only.
