Let's All Laugh At... Let's all wonder what's going on at United?

There's no way he's keeping the job regardless of success IMO, he doesn't have any kind of fitting résumé.
Rubbish. If he gets them a tilt at top 4 and they start to play the football that the fans want then he'll be given the job. He's a fan favourite and God knows the United boardroom need some positive PR.

Its always strange that when a new coach arrives that you see a upturn in results but it is normally short lived in the majority of cases. Once the initial adrenaline from the players runs out they tend to return to their previous ways. I expect Ole Gunnar Solskjær to get a few wins but ultimately he will just be a stopgap until the Summer. Utd will probably finish in the top 6 but definitely not the top 4 IMHO.

Dematteo did that at Chelsea and still got the sack.
He was given the job permanently and was then sacked a few months later after a dodgy start to the season.

We can hope for the same to happen with Solskjær, or that he can hold on for a season or two, promising enough to keep him on but never delivering.

But people are idiots and can't be trusted. Legal action is the only deterrent.
Trident's a pretty good deterrent...but then it may be difficult to use on individuals and there may be a lot of fallout.

*Not Trident the chewing gum lol

If my boss was as critical as Jose I'd probably end up demotivated and give less than my best as well.
Nah, I’m a stubborn bugger. I’d prove the bastard wrong. Everyone different, being a good manager entails recognising what motivates different people.

Not that Jose recognised this. How modus operandi was just to blame everyone.

Chelsea won the league after mourinho before going back to the bellends that can't be arsed to work for the manager.

You say that but being moaned at behind closed doors and lambasted publicly are 2 very different things.
Also if you tried your best to prove him wrong but your boss was still telling you you're useless I'm fairly sure you'd eventually think fk you ya prick.
I think its hilarious Maureen got the job and the twats that appointed him thought they were gonna get exciting football and he'd develop youth in the traditional Man U way. Was never gonna happen.

Did they really think that though? Personally I think they wanted a quick fix, get a couple of trophies and back in the CL

I will be glad if Solskjær does well...

man utd players have big egos. sure... they are fine if the results go their way, but once one or two results go badly, they will start to feel nervous and insecure.

whoever goes into man utd next season will have to clean house, get rid of those -ve influences. which could be big names like Prog.

Pogba reminds me of Ade when AVB was sacked how good was he fir sherwood to prove a point.

The problem is pogba is providing motivated great going forwards but doesn’t help out defensively enough.
