Next managerial casualty

Post by Puff Daddy » Wed Jan 05, 2022 8:00 pm

Man United's bloke's on borrowed time. This appointment, never looked right from the outset and surprise, surprise, there are reports of player unrest, even he doesn't take training sessions, dressing room rifts, that the club is a shambles and that he remains aloof from the players, who accuse each other of lacking commitment, togetherness and even motivation, player cliques and some are even blaming each other.for their poor form. There are also reports, that some players get selected no matter how they perform. This ain't good and he'll be out in the summer

He’s only on a contract until the summer anyway, isn’t he?

One of the strangest managerial appointments, made like he’s this mystical genius saviour of football, but who has never managed a big club.

The problem for Man U is thst there is a limited market for the interim manager role should they fire their current interim manager :lol:

I know he's only lost 1match, but they were second best to Norwich in one of them FFS and we're lucky to leave St James's Park with a draw

I think Ranieri will beat him to it.

For our hopes it would better if he’s Rangnick lasts at least another month or so. Although it would be hilarious if they decided to sack him when he’s meant to have a 2 year consulting job at the end of the season!

The club feels like a ghost ship. No plan, weird player purchases and seemingly little regard for money with both Pogba and Lingard on the verge of leaving for peanuts.

To put this guy in until the summer suggests they already have a replacement lined up for next season (Poch). However, given the shambles they are in who knows!

Long may it continue 😁

That's a job for a young, up and coming manager, possibly from a Championship, or even, League 1 club to make this a project

Benitez. My wildcard guess is Bielsa.

Ranieri, Benitez, Tuchel, Hasenhuttl, in that order.
Ranieri 6/4 and Benitez 2/1...hard to choose which one will get the bullet!

Personally, I think Ranieri will be afforded marginally more time...Rafa is skating on very thin ice with the board and also the fans...so wouldn't be surprised if he goes first, probably within the month.

Not necessarily a sacking but I wonder whether there might be a parting of the ways if Burnley don’t give Dyche a fighting chance of survival in the Jan transfer window.

I know, it's brilliant isn't it?

I was worried when they sacked Solskjaer that they'd get their act together, but if anything they're even more divided. Perhaps OGS was doing all he could to hold all the players together?

I think Man Utd will just take whatever happens this season tbh. They obviously have a manager they want for the Summer. A few players will leave. Not saying they will be happy with not finishing top 4, but don't think they'll get rid of Rangnick when he's taking another job with them.

Didn't he take only a 6 month contract? and there's always the Levy factor. May not be as daft as it sounds
