FSG are vastly superior owners to the Glazers. They did with the Red Sox what they did with the scouse- take a former giant in the doldrums and restore them to glory. The Glazers won something of significance about 20 years ago.
Answer me this - What is Ole's job? What are his responsibilities as manager?
To get the best out of the players he has. Entertainment. Winning. He’s got room to improve in all three areas. However, he’d need to be more magician than manager to win the league with this lot. The things Ole is criticized for (tactics, man management, substitutions, lack of criticism re: the board) are things Jose is renowned for, and yet he failed. The common denominators are the board and this group of players.
Most of them have had 3 very different managers and have produced the same thing for all three. Varying degrees of inconsistency.
Change the manager and you’ll see an instant uptick in results. We might even win a game 5-0, but once the pressure is off the players, they’ll resort to type. There’s a large enough sample size there by now to go on.
Speaking for myself, winning the league isn't what I targeted for this club at the start of this season, but I was hoping for a lot more than 10 points out of 7 games. He is definitely not getting the best out of the players. He's not winning. Entertainment is a toss up. Some games we are great, some are equally bad. So at the moment after 2 years we aren't really in a better position than when he started.
With regard to the players, he can always change things, not play certain underperformers, try to go for a different system etc. He doesn't do much of that either. To be honest, I haven't seen any system from him at all apart from a counter-attack. We don't know how to utilize possession to our advantage. We're so-so as a pressing team. Glaringly, we've spent a lot on defenders and he can't seem to coach them to actually defend individually or as a unit. He's pinned leadership on a man who doesn't deserve it as well.
So a comparison between what has improved and what hasn't in his reign, would leave us with largely more of the same. Not denying your point about owners and management. He still isn't good at doing his job.

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.

simes: Kazakhstan....well blow me down...been there many a time, not so bad a journey. FC Astana are not a bad outfit, gave Celtic a good run, and the National side beat Scotland. What do you reckon a walk over? BTW its easy to get to, I always use Air Astana.
