    I'd love Carrick as a caretaker while they're finalizing who the long term guy will be, but I don't think he should be the next permanent manager. He's obviously a club legend, and seems like he has a good managerial career ahead of him, but he's essentially only got a half year of experience under his belt. Throwing him into the tire fire that is United right now is not setting him up for success.

    Why would ZZ do it?

    I find this post very funny because it rests on the assumption that Zidane would be willing to step in as an interim manager for 6 months with no intentions of being kept on after that, and that, rather than be thrilled at this absurd hypothetical, you just "wouldn't mind."

    I wouldn't. He's completely inexperienced and throwing him out to the wolves might have permanent effects for his future career. It's not like Giggs was very good either after Moyes was sacked. OGS would be a better option since he's been coaching for several years now.

    Yessssssss I’m so happy right now! I’m actually thoroughly surprised United had the balls to do this.

    This was my thought process when reading that post, but I didn't have the patience to articulate it.

    I'm a bit surprised as well, but they did get completely embarrassed and played off the pitch in the second biggest game of the year (the only bigger one being the home fixture)

    Yeah I mean I understand that but you’d think getting outplayed by the likes of Brighton, Young Boys (to an extent), and Southampton are worse. Also being out of the top 4 with little to no way to make up the ground.

    Anyone who isn't getting promised a truck of cash waits till the summer.

    Might as well make Pogba manager.

    I don’t think ZZ will coach MU tbh

    I think Laurent Blanc would be a good candidate.
    And he knows the club

    Oh he definitely wouldn’t. I was basing this off something I saw that said United wanted ZZ as a caretaker manager. Should’ve prefaced it. Doesn’t matter as it looks likes they want Solskjaer to be the caretaker.

    Daily Telegraph are saying OGS would take over for the remainder of the season. It seems unlikely that he'd leave Molde for just that. Though I see the metaphor of Solskjaer coming in in the middle of the season and saving it.

    I hope they put an Interim coach and then sign Allegri in the off season.

    United should just bring back all their old players. Evra, Neville, Giggs, Carrick, OGS, Scholes, Keane, all under Blanc. Get them playing the right style with Blanc and teach them what it means to be at United. No but really they should at least have a few ex players come in and kind of scare them straight in a way.

    Absolutely not. Good players don't equal good managers. None of those who entered coaching roles particularly excelled. Giggs tried to strong arm his way into the manager job. Neville got an opportunity based on a business partner.

    I'm getting really tired of ex players being the expert on everything United. Chris Smalling isn't Rio Ferdinand because he sucks, not because he doesn't know how to win. It's ridiculous.

    They should get a functioning manager and technical director. Stop with the nostalgia.

    Did I read that correctly? Moyes still has 6 months left on his original United contract? How many managers are United paying atm?

    It was more of a scaring straight sort of thing. Except Blanc. Blanc is for his system. The rest are to show what playing for United is about.

    Of course Mourinho to Madrid speculation in the Barça papers. That would be precious.
