    - Allegri gets sacked
    - Sarri gets sacked
    - Pirlo gets sacked

    Ronaldo joins United:

    From goal machine, to manager sacking machine.

    I'd also take the criticism of him not winning much more seriously if he wasn't doing it at Spurs :laugh:

    He got them to a CL final ffs. A club who you'd not exactly fancy for a top 4 spot before he came in.

    Think what he was able to get going there has really been brushed under the rug. They were mad to let him go rather than properly back him and root out any unsettlers in the side.

    People are quick to say he should have won something with that squad but fail to recognise he's the only manager that made Dele and Rose perform consistently, sure we had Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Wanyama, Dembele who all had quite some injury issues, same with Kane being injured for a few months every season. He got to the CL final with a midfield of WInks and Sissoko.

    I'm not sure he's the right manager for Man Utd, at least not short term. A big part of his succes at Spurs was getting rid of the big egos and getting everyone to be 100% committed. It's hard to judge his PSG work so far, I don't think they were that much worse than Man City in the semis last season despite getting 2 red cards, he finished 2nd in the league but finished quite strong 11wins3draws or something, he missed Veratti and Neymar for half a season and their depth wasn't amazing.
    They are definitely not as dominant as they could possibly be but they beat Man City this season and are 9 points clear in the league already.

    Similar questions can be asked about Ten Hag, amazing job so far at Ajax and taken them as far as they could possibly go but very much unknown how he'll do at a club like Man Utd. So some question marks but the biggest job he's had has been beyond expectations so definitely worth giving a shot.

    To be fair, he managed their biggest rivals, which I think is always going to be the main source of opposition, no matter what Rodgers achieves in the game.

    I mean, Benitiez is way too good a manager for Everton realistically, but you still saw their fans not want him because he was ex-Liverpool.

    Course they were & PSG as well as Manure .

    As if City's CEO hasn't had a call with Ronaldo's agent seeing how much wages he wants & estimating how much merchandise sales in comparison to wages per week & in line with FFP as well as raising City's global appeal signing 1 of the 2 most iconic footballers on the planet .

    Seems they had good sense giving Ronaldo a wide birth to concentrate on signing young Haaland next season .

    Has it?

    Ma bad..

    No, they weren't. It got put out there so United would take the bait. They took it.

    Plus, Pep wouldn't sign him either. He doesn't fit into Pep's system which starts with pressing from the front.

    Basically yes, if we don’t win on Thursday I think he’s skating on thin ice.

    Heard something amusing in a radio phone-in last night. There had been some toffees calling in, unhappy with Benitez. When a United fan called in about their situation, the presenter suggested (maybe a little tongue in cheek) that Benitez might soon be available. The caller went off on one about the idea of having an ex Liverpool manager, saying anyone connected with Liverpool was scum and would never be welcome at Old Trafford. The presenter asked him who his first choice would be and he said, "I'd like Brendan Rogers" :laugh::fail:

    Radio phone-in callers are like that though. I heard one on 606 after the Watford game going on about United 'haven't had a clean sheet since March'. The last clean sheet was Oct 30th at Spurs.

    Fearful of a potential Pochettino/United duo.

    It's like people phoning into those things have been given 30 seconds max to form an opinion on something before going live.

    Tbf maybe Arsenal will then follow their lead and stop putting faith in a coach with such glaring limitations.
