rangnick to utd
job until the end of the season plus a 2 year consultancy role afterwards apparently. Calling it now that this turns into him being DoF afterwards.

Totally fine by me. It could go all pear shaped, but I didnít think the Glazers would bring in a guy that has zero qualms letting them know that theyíre prats and actually has a vision. It also means that he will have a major hand in selecting the next manager and style

Of the five man interim shortlist reported yesterday he's def the most interesting choice and probably also the worst fit for the squad/most likely to fail spectacularly. I'll definitely take interesting/spectacular failure after the eyesore of the last 8 years tho.

The thing is, we do have players that can do the things he wants. Itíll mean a lot less Lindelof and hopefully more Bailly when Varane is healthy. It could mean that we actually get something out of Dalot. Ironically, Fred may well benefit from this and VdB absolutely will benefit. Itíll suck for Ronny, but how things were wasnít exactly good for Ronny either as he wants to win trophies.

Itíll mean a ton of player turnover for sure. But, Iím sure both you and I are more than fine with that.

Ernesto Valverde, Lucien Favre, Rudi Garcia and Paulo Fonseca. Basically every manager currently unemployed and somewhat recently sacked from big club.

Edit: Poch would have been perma. I think it'll be him in the summer but the Ajax manager is supposedly on the shortlist too.

Yeah I'm not too attached to any of those twats. I'd hate to see Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho go but that's about it atm.

how I feel as well (add in Donny and Bruno ofc). Just that we aren't bereft of talent and since we need 2, maybe 3, CMs, those guys can be part of the building blocks for what Ralf would want as opposed to some tosspot who we can't get 10m for.

Rangnick purchasing players for utd is way scarier than him coaching them.
11-25-2021 , 04:23 PM
wait, united didn't sign zizou???? tf

lolSpurs

feel like i've said that way too many times lately
11-25-2021 , 04:31 PM
West Ham cruise into whatever the next round is, 17 year old Sonny Perkins is unlucky not to score with his first touch on his debut and Spurs product some vintage lolSpurs. Lovely stuff.

Translation : **** me, i wish i knew the players were this shite before signing 2 weeks before the united job opened up
11-25-2021 , 06:25 PM
I think it's pretty clear United weren't interested in Conte for whatever reason and he knew it or he would have just waited Ole out.
11-25-2021 , 09:16 PM
Conte is like the one elite manager I dont love.
Huge temper, liable to quit at a slight
Doesn't do any stats, hates that stuff
Doesn't do video review or work

His methods work, but you absolutely have to get results if you are going to be a dinosaur
11-25-2021 , 11:53 PM
I did not expect Ralf

For whatever reason, I feel like United made a sensible choice now in getting a DoF to get to know the team first hand before. But with Ralf the possibility of ManUs next permanent manager being German also must have skyrocketed.

I'd posit that you need to get results regardless of your methods.
