    That Arsenal match is looking absolutely massive for them.

    I don't "expect" Arsenal to win necessarily, but if the Mancs lose that one, then they're at least 8 points behind 4th spot with 14 matches played. A long old season with plenty of time to claw their way back in, but that isn't a position you'd want to be in given how competitive Arsenal, Wolves, West Ham, Leicester, Brighton and Tottenham are at the moment.

    Some of those sides will fall away of course but you don't want to find yourself behind 2/3/4 sides as the pressure will only get bigger.

Rangnick has the wisdom to rebuild the club into a position where it will know what type of manager it needs. So, he'll offer them a way out of waiting for Ferguson's verdict.

    How long it takes and whether the other pieces of the jigsaw are in place remains to be seen.
    Ralf seems to be getting some rather amazing press coverage. Better interim than Carrick but not sure he'll meet the mark, here's hoping it's another calamity.

    Well, the media have been pretty ridiculously hysterical about him that's for sure, touting him pretty much as the man who made Jurgen and Tuchel

    I'm sure he has his merits, but if we're entirely honest and logical about this, were he really all that and something more than a man who had some great ideals and ideas about how to play the game that Jurgen and Tuchel took on board along with their own and were successful with them where he was not, he wouldn't be being picked up from where he was would he?

    Pressing and counter pressing isn't difficult, it does take time to get it to the levels it needs to be to be successful and require the right type of players to play it also, I honestly don't think the filthy have the right type of players to play it successfully

    Agree. I disagree with the idea Ronny is their problem. They've a load of forward options that aren't suited to the high intensity game.
    At least with Ronny he stays fit most of the time and has his goals/assists stats.

    Really should be building a solid 10 man side to play behind ronny and go from there. But there's a lot of pressure to get some big names and lazy arses into the starting 11
