    It's not hate, just the fact that you're now worse than us, says a lot.

    As it was accidentally reported yesterday, OGS and Mike Phelan take over for the remainder of the season.

    Well see how OGS does I guess. Was pretty horrible at cardiff, but could be a different story with more talent at his disposal.

    The expectations for a caretaker coming into this tire fire are also pretty low.

    Basically all he has to do is keep them ahead of Everton/Leicester/West Ham/whoever is in 7th. I don't think anyone realistically expects him to make a run in the CL or make a challenge for the top 4. They're 11 points back with 21 games to play. Realistically they'd have to earn something like 2.4 points a game the rest of the way (~90 point season pace) which just isn't remotely reasonable.

    This is a pretty much lost season already. Get in Europa and get the players enjoying life again. This is going to sound awful but I kind of wish we dropped to Europa so we had a chance at CL next year.

    No, I’m not expecting him to get any results such as get top 4 or anything. I’m just curious how well gets the team to play and see how much he can improve the team/develop some of the younger guys.

    I think they'll see an immediate bounceback on results and style of play. The players will respond to the contrast, and not having that pants-****ting, whiny clown managing them.

    How long it lasts, or what happens when tougher fixtures arrive, I don't know.

    I know OGS likes players to “express themselves” as he’s said in previous interviews. So I think there should be a positive style of play hopefully and should be good players like Pogba, Martial, Rashford, Sanchez etc.

    As long as they start actually trying to play and attack I’ll be happy.

    Kudos to Neville for squashing any hopes of him joining United with honesty. "I'm not qualified." "Maybe 10-15 years from now, but until then, they need the best person available."

    That’s why I thought of it. Trump and Jose is a match made in heaven, and the ups at the USMNT don’t seem like the sharpest tools in the shed

    Everyone on the NBC Soccer prematch says Poch is leaving for ManU.

    Looking at the schedule, I think ManU is going to go on a string of victories and keep OGS.

    They have no idea. I like most of the staff on NBC but none of them have any idea about the inner workings of Spurs or United.

    No they don't...but they've always said Poch wasn't leaving whenever his name came up in the past.
