For all the unnecessary negativity I see in this forum I can't effing believe I don't see more outrage and discontent about freaking Mou rumours. Am I the only one to think he is wrong for us on every possible level? And what about Gigsy?... Haven't people learned anything about football with Leicester and Ranieri !!! I am so effing gutted... It's that board of executives that should be sacked.
Who else thinks pochettino could be the best manager to replace van gaal.Am in awe of this Spurs side, and the manager is absolutely brilliant.....I think he would do an amazing job with all the resources available at United...what's your take?
A club like MUFC cannot replace LVG by someone who has not won a single trophy during his managing career.

We need to fight for trophies not for top 4.
Pochettino is committed to Spurs. It's not about money always.
Bullshit^. It always comes down to money. He says no to 8m a year? Try 15. Still no? Go to 30. Eventually even the most loyal man can be bought.
+1
If he was so loyal he would still be at Southampton or something. Anyways I don't see why he would deserve an offer from us just yet
+2
I think Dom is spot on lol. he hasn't won anything with soton nor spurs. We ought to go for the top managers but truth is we haven't been able to attract top talent for a while be it players or managers (no guess why pep going to city)

The intent says alot when we replaced SAF with moyes. we cannot appoint another unproven manager and waste another 3-4 years repeating our poor cycle of hoping "potential" comes good.

Sad to say I don't like Mou but he is currently perhaps the only one with the credentials to fit the bill.
Atleast give him time until end of the season to judge...haven't won anything yet and he is best man to be next united manager ?? seriously?
@Dom - except that we already did...with Golum
Hope Leicester can bone arsenal this weekend. They will define become favourites for the title if they win while we need favors if we are to get that 4th place. Go foxes!
Umm.. 4th place is taken. You could maybe try for 3rd
+2
Darren fletcher scored a great goal against peterborough in the fa cup.nice to see him playing an important role at wba
+3
And samuelson from peterborough who is on loan from west ham looks like a good young player.he's having a great game,creating loads of trouble from the center of midfield for the wba defence
Also missed a penalty terribly.
Juan Mata checking his phone for all the latest rumors in football, his praying Joze isn't the next manager.
+1
So sad
+1
I hope he doesnt remove Mata; He removed him at Chelsea but they were a different team and the replacement Oscar never really matched up to Mata's levels.
I feel really bad for him, If Mou becomes our manager next season, I hope he won't remove him
Mou didn't remove him. Mata wanted to leave over playtime.
^Mourinho might didn't remove him technically. But he did force Mata to leave by playing him less than he suppose to especially a player who had won players of the season consecutively, that's basically give Mata a middle finger. It's not really rocket science to not see that Mourinho doesn't want him aka remove him from Chelsea. Sometime people just don't want to say it to your face, but just want to give you a hint.
Di Marzio also reporting mourinho to united , so that means LVG will be sacked ( mutually agreed ) after the end of season.

Just curious why not right away ? Why wait till end of the season ?
Not really sure. I would guess we did not want to be seen as a club that keep sacking managers mid season.
Is Di Marzio trustable? I think not.

How many times does LvG have to clarify this? Fkin media
+1
hahaha, LVG sacked for the XX time this season!!
Probably not to destabilize the team, plus I guess out of respect to a retiring great of the game.

Di Marzio has more credibility than most of the sports news journalist out there.
+1
Di Marzio is trustworthy. It looks like Jose will take over in the summer.

If this is confirmed Manchester will have the 2 best managers in the world.
Damn the Manchester Derby will be heated, its lost its intensity after Mancini and SAF left but Pep and Mou should spice it up.
did he say mourinho was taking over this summer? i dont think that was specified.
Would Mourinho wait more than a year for the Utd job? Maybe he will but it looks like LVG is ready to walk in the summer and Mourinho will take over.

@Sif I also read an article by Di Marzio that you posted which said that Mendes has a big project for Mourinho and Andre Gomes at Utd next summer.
@SIF other sources are saying it will happen in summer, he just said he will be next manager just never specified when.
So... again there is Mourinho talk. This time reports that he's said to 'close friends' its a done deal and he will be manager of utd next season.

So without going into too much detail (lets avoid essays please) simply put your top pro/for and top con/against to his appointment.

:D

yeah, Skysports also reported something like this, this may actually be legit:

http://www.90min.com/posts/2942022-jose-mourinho-reportedly-tells-friends-his-move-to-manchester-united-is-a-done-deal?old_domain=ftbpro.com/&utm_source=app&utm_medium=share
Sky Sports didn't post this story.

I've had to say this a few times but SSN often does a "papers" section where they post summaries of stories from other papers, its not their story or their sources on this one mate.

But the talk is gathering pace, I guess we will see. If LVG doesn't make top 4 then he is guaranteed the axe, I think he will be lucky to survive even if we scrape top 4.
+1
Pro: Top manager.
Con: Top c**t.
+8
Pro: Trophies
Con: R.i.p club reputation and morals

Though if he is appointed, lets hope the club forces him to change his ways.
Pro: chance of trophies (not guaranteed)

Con: defensive insipid football
+2
Pro: Trophies
Con: Defensive boring football & goodbye to youth
+2
Pro:

1. Default win over Arsenal(As if its any different now :P)
2. Trophies
3. Will attract star players and make big signings

Con:

1. Defensive football
2. goodbye to youth & Mata
+7
typical tabloid style.. mou has told close friends that he's replacing lvg.. really?
^ Just play the game mate.
+7
SIF ruined it!!!
mourinho

pros: he's got premier league experience
he's won some stuff with every club he's managed
he's buddy-buddy with super agent mendes (who is his agent) and together they would bring in some top players.
decent tactician, meticulous planner
decent man-manager for first two seasons if he rates you as a player

cons: he's crap with the media - negative headlines for the club are guaranteed
conspiracy theories galore
obsessed with arsene wenger
teams collapse in his third season
he named his kids after himself and his wife (ego)
his hair is thinning, this makes him wild and unpredictable.
i don't know his philosophy. can you trust a man with no philosohy?
negative football in the big games
mata gets the valdes treatment
+1
Dimarzio thinks he will be and a lot of other reliable sources in other countries think so too.


https://twitter.com/DiMarzio/status/697410752513208320

This just like Pep to city. Only a matter of time until it's official
+1
I'm not sure if Mou will be good for the club's future. Short term, he'll give us trophies. But now that we have a foundation setting up, isn't it ideal to have a manager who'll build upon it instead of starting a new foundation again?
damn, well thats not great news imo... di marzio is almost never wrong.

i cant imagine they've decided his fate already..
Who else? Lets be honest there are not many managers that want to work with possessive style of play that we have build. So far Pep was the most ideal manager for us to transition that to next level and build on it.

Mou has defensive style, he likes to exploit spaces and be patient about it. Not sure what so different to what we do now? Also he is rarely available, top manager like that should be taken basing on our current state: fans need trophies, they are hungry for results after Fergie left. I dont see any more patience coming from our fans to be honest.

Giggs does not have practical experience, big risk taken at this stage when we need a survival plan and are desperate is out of question.

Leicester and Tottenham managers are the only ones that of interest lately, but honestly be better off also rebuilding from scratch this squad rather than building on top what? Problem is we dont even know what is right and what exactly we want. Due to that Mou while arguable seems to be the only option for now.
Well there are also reports saying we're looking to bringing in ath madrid's sporting director Andrea Berta to join Mourinho next season. He's another one of jorg mendes's boys as well.

But yeah, despite all other arguments against mourinho, there are no other viable candidates at the moment for the job.
No pros - Can't stand the fool. He's effing Chelsea as far as I'm concerned and getting him instead of Gigsy feels like a spit in our faces.
Only cons. Don't get me started...
^ And if Giggs fails, will you hate him and blame who exactly? What about other united fans opinion? Did you see what is happening with Neville in Spain when he took a task way over his head? Now his knowledge is judged not only on manager level, on pundit level as well.

I am not saying you are wrong, I just dont known what us, United fans, want at this stage.
+1
If Giggs was appointed I think its fair to say majority of us would support him.

However if the road gets rough and we lose key games because of his lack of tactical knowledge or dodgy pointless substitutions I can see the fans turning on him very quickly which I think is a shame.

I don't think its as simple as putting on wingers and all of a sudden we at the top again. I just hope Giggs has a thorough understanding of positions all over the field.
Giggs would have every fans' backing if given the job, but he wouldn't be my first choice. It would be a huge risk to get him ahead of more experienced managers. We might have to start from scratch with mou as he would rip the team part and spend 300 million but giggs is an anomaly
Things is, will United fans be as patient with Giggs as they're not with LvG?

I would back Giggs as SIF says, and I truly think Giggs will one day be a success. But that's just it: one day. Maybe that day is 1 year down the road, maybe it's 3. But it seems that many United fans have lost patience with LvG in a year and a half; that's not a long time, and I'd hate to see Giggs' legacy tarnished due to impatient expectations.

Disclaimer- I'm not trying to bring LvG directly into the discussion with this, I just don't know how realistic it is to expect Giggs to pull a Pep. After all, we don't have Messi, Xavi, and Iniesta in our squad.
Lol... taken from the Liverpool page:

"Liverpool's record signing comes on for West Ham..." haha
+7
They lost the game with style
+1
It just keeps getting worse and worse for them
the abject, slack-jawed incompetence of this club's hierarchy is shocking. what a shambles.
Whats the reason this week for saying the club is in shambles ?
+6
Did you confuse the liverpule forum with ours?
+1
I think he did, because this may be news to him but we are doing well atm
Internet Explorer have gone worse these days
+4
I must say i was really pissed with depay (not for his defensive skills cos an attacker shld be judged for his attacking abilities)

I think him dropping to U21 game was a punishment from lvg. Memphis' response was at least right this time round to work his socks off and treat it seriously. If he will show more effort in future and couple with some results diff from that last few minutes at chelsea all will be forgiven.
