But a better coach/manager with a better group of staff,can & would get more out of this group of players. The change now has to come & quickly,last night it was very obvious that players shave downed tools.
Agree with you. Short term improvement will come from a better manager and backroom staff. Longer term success, however, and getting back to our title winning ways will take a much larger revamp.
that will only happen once the Glazers pack up & fuck off!

This may be way off, but maybe our ex-players don't want to throw Ole under the bus because they only remember him as a player, and don't really know him as a coach.
When you've been in the most high-performance dressing room in football with a guy, with elite mentality being the norm, and won everything together, it must be hard to think that same ex-teammate could let standards slip this far as a manager. "I remember how hard he worked in training. I remember how high his standards were. How cutting he could be with his comments when we weren't playing well. Surely he's laying into these players."
Love them all, but what qualifies these ex-players to comment on what's required of a manager, apart from the generic 'attitude' and 'standards', etc.?
Rio can definitely pinpoint all the glaring issues with our defence. Scholesy can spot the issues in our midfield.
But they're looking at symptoms, not the cause.
Sir Alex built an entire system of running a football club from the ground up that led to that dominant period in our history. These ex-players were just cogs in that machine, so they only have their own limited ideas about what it was that made them successful.
Sir Alex was unique in the sense that he was the designer of the system as well as the orchestrator, for decades. That is too big a job for one man nowadays.
Which is a long way to say, yes, Ole is very limited as a manager and not the right man for the job, but until we have a new system in place with a DoF that is ready to compete in the modern football world, no manager alone is going to change things at this club.
Of course it’s not. Remember when they were gassing up Rooney despite it being obvious he was done at this level.
Don’t kid yourself , they look after their own interests first.
Hardly an objective voice amongst them unfortunately.
Ince was one of a few that did yet our fans slapped him down.
After finally summoning up to courage to watch the highlights this morning on BT Sport I cannot see that Ole can go any further, he has no defence, and neither does his team. Comparing them with Keystone Cops didn’t even come close to that last night, they’d have stuck four past us! But I fear another cycle of rinse, repeat (Poch or no) as long as these parasites from Miami are connected with the club.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.
