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.
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.
+7
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
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

typical tabloid style.. mou has told close friends that he's replacing lvg.. really?
^ Just play the game mate.
+4
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
Dimarzio thinks he will be and a lot of other reliable sources in other countries think so too.

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 now 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.
Lol... taken from the Liverpool page:

"Liverpool's record signing comes on for West Ham..." haha
+6
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 ?
+4
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
+1
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.

http://www.punditarena.com/football/english-football/chelsea/jmurphy/after-chelsea-horror-show-memphis-depay-was-on-fire-for-manchester-uniteds-u-21s-tonight/
I just saw the terrible pass Depay made. we dropped 2 points because of him. You can't really blame Blind for it. Memphis is under performing. Anyone with a footballing brain could have made a better pass to Schneiderlin. All he had to do was pass it to his left instead of trying to be iniesta.
+3
he played well though in last U21 game with couple thousand kilometers of space given by Norwich Defense.

So dont hate on Memphis bro, lets give him like 3 more years in the starting lineup as he is young, and inexperienced: I dont think we gave him enough chance.
+2
He was good when he was starting alot with Shaw to help him out. Now he is just losing himself. Let him start against a minor team, and see how he does.
So far memphis is all on the wrong side of news and results.
- driving a 250k convertible rolls royce to training
- nothing to show except for brugge performance
- horrid norwich back header

I think for someone his age he should be much more humble and work harder. The fact that martial is doing what at the start of the season we were expecting memphis to do says alot. He just hasnt reproduced the form in the dutch league. But lets give him one season to get used to it.. i do think memphis has what it takes.

Like rooney said everyone can make a bad pass. Cant help that the guy is rusty and lack playing time. Hope the u21 outing helps him
+1
^ His back header is bringing me nightmares

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtJ-NFvquTM

Putting him in U21 might be a great decision to find his form and confidence.
*Back header against stoke* hopefully he regains confidence
Can't criticise him for driving a spectacular car. He's being paid well so why not treat himself... considering he's 21 what else do you expect? I know I'd have the same mentality at that age.

Now his performances have been inconsistent which too is pretty normal at this age and the position he plays. I say give him time to adapt and we'll see some great performances.

LVG has lost faith in him clearly and it shows in the performances.
The new Prem league logo looks like a lion with a down syndrome
+2
Should have used this

nah this one is much better

https://twitter.com/paddypower/status/697061217677000704
It's going to take time to get used to that
Hate how some change good traditions and keep bad traditions sometimes
+1
shiwa you said it
in case united wont make a top 4 in the table and we win the euro league, are we qualified for the champions league next season or for the last rounds of the quali?
i remember something with sevilla last year. spain had 5 teams in the champions league right?
+2
Yes we can! Lets do it!
+2
soon it could be our only chance of qualifying for the cl next season...
+1
"in case united wont make a top 4 in the table" LVG will be going for early retirement.
+1
Lol memphis and jones in the u21 tonight. humbling i bet.

very strong starting xi


Romero; Love, McNair, Jones, Varela; Weir, Harrop; Januzaj, A.Pereira, Memphis; Keane

some lovely u21 goals to set the mood: http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Features/2016/Feb/video-great-under-21-goals-at-old-trafford.aspx
+1
Let's hope he learns how to make a 5 yard pass
+6
especially when they are leading 1-0 in the 88th minute lol
hopefully he can track back as well I'm just saying
Januzaj off injured. Maybe a hamstring injury. Add Varela to the injury list as well.
https://twitter.com/JuanMataTouch/status/696783927797813248

🙈🙈🙈

maybe he should pick on kids his own size, eh?
give memphis a f*****g year, confidence, and some world class players around him he's going to be absolutely beast
+2
Wow, Will Keane playing like Lewandowski. His 4th goals was the best i have seen in a while from a Utd player.
+1
will keane killing it
+1
lol he's almost as old as lewandowski, that's probably why :P
+2
memphis and fosu mensah, SICK
lewandowski was pretty much in the same place at his age
Lol 7-0 and utds fans calling for warren joyce to replace LvG 😂😂😂

to be honest he's got more credentials than giggs at least
+2
Keanadowski, please bring that to senior level
+1
Any update on the injury?

Poor Janu's career is going nowhere :(
+1
Feel bad for Adnan but please LVG put Will Keane on
http://www.punditarena.com/football/english-football/chelsea/jmurphy/after-chelsea-horror-show-memphis-depay-was-on-fire-for-manchester-uniteds-u-21s-tonight

Memphis looking more like his old self from this couple of clips, if only he start doing more of this in first team games.
That energy level should be the least he should be showing on senior level. His recent few games with first team were nothing but carelessness and laziness.

This season, Felli flourished after his first U21 game, hope this is the sign for change.
More interested in Will Keane at this point, glad though Memphis returned back to Netherlands for that game where there was lands of space given.
+1
Well no s**t the u21 level is easier than the dutch league. Psv just knocked us out of CL remember? The reserve league is pants. That's why players like Wilson are on loan to get real experience. The games in the reserves are nothing more than to keep him fit and sharp because he hasn't played consistently in a while. You only gain match fitness by playing games, otherwise it's like being out with an injury. You lose fitness and sharpness. Probably starting to look like crap in training vs guys playing real matches every week.

Can't take much away from his performance but it seems a fair few of you forgot (or lost faith in) his qualities and why utd were interested in him in the first place. The annoying thing is the same people that slate memphis praise kids like sterling, who had a good game once a month and then disappears. Memphis will need time. Not everyone adapts like Martial.

Keane did well but really it's time to move on imo. He's 23 and I don't think he's first team level. I hope the goals get him offers. These games should go to our 18 year olds not 23 year olds. Periera is wasting his time down there as well. He's 21 this year and has been playing in the reserves since 18. Time to give him minutes here or on loan.

the real mvp.
Signing rvp from another club makes up for bebe
Arsenal fan repeat after me... ROBIN VAN PERSIE

The laughs we had made him worth every penny.
