So Solskjær and Phelan 'til the end of the season. Let's see how this pans out. It could be worse I guess. I reckon they'll grab Pochettino next season.
Phelan seems like a good idea. Maybe they should just have put Fergie back in charge for a while!
Fergie health is the problem here otherwise I'm sure that would've been considered.
I meant Sarah Ferguson ;)
I knew that obviously but only because you love the good the bad and the queen.

Little Pea is doing well. But I think Anderson was the missing link for them.

It would have been Ferguson who got Solskjaer back.

Probably be better if Mourinho stopped talking in view of what Ole has done with the same players.

Oh you know it will all be down to Mourinho's greatness. :rolleyes:

His style of management and play seems to just stifle any quality the team has.

I wonder if Ole had been Fergies successor what a different side they may have become.

A lot of credit has to go to Mike Phelan in my opinion.

Glad you agree with me about Mike Phelan. I think maybe Ole has been a bit lucky with the way the fixtures have fallen (but Spurs away was obviously a tough one), but isn't it obvious that if you have a great array of attackers and a not so good defence then you play an attacking game rather than a defensive game? Also, it is the Man Utd way.

Agreed on all points. I think the schedule is not really relevant whether it's a top 4 side or bottom 4 side there are no easy games in the Prem.

Laxman on paper you could say the fixtures were kind but they were also the gsm s Mourinho wasn’t winning. I thought the big test was beating Brighton after the Tottenham win which was always Mourihno’s problem. He could win the one off games against the big guns but couldn’t back it up devaluing the win.
I put it down to confidence. Rashford is back to his old self not afraid to have a crack. Same with Pogba, he will miscue some passes in a games but then he will hit one like he did to beat Tottenham. That goal would never have happened under Mourinho.

All I was meaning was that those first games haven't included PSG, City or Liverpool. They might have been tricky assignments so early in his tenure. I see similarities between Utd and Arsenal, both with stronger attacks than defences. Arsenal embraced a more attacking approach than Utd did under Maureen and did fine, only coming a cropper when they played the top teams.

Friday night's F.A. cup match will be interesting.
